Posts on Deck

I've had several posts waiting in the wings because I have not had time to complete them. The list includes full reviews of Nightshade City and The Dust of 100 Dogs, both of which skyrocketed toward the top of my favorite books ever. 

Other posts include pictures from my recent beach excursions and a video recording capturing the "barking" sound the sand makes when you walk on it (I cannot get the sound to work on the video, which defeats the purpose of the whole thing. Raise your hand if you want to see a ten second video of my swishing my hand through the sand. BORING.)

I have been sick, sick, sick, and I HATE it. I am never sick and I am not sure what is going on with my nose, throat, and sinuses, but I hope they sort themselves out soon. I even left work early which I haven't done in six years and I need to get back to the beach! Enough with the self-pity though because I have so much work to do.
Homework, writing, and volunteering are on the list. I need to find some discipline.

Speaking of discipline, Heather Kelly kicked off the Second Annual Tour de Writing! Check it out and challenge yourself to shoot for one of the jerseys. There are prizes to be had at the end of the month (I helped pick them out and trust me, you want in!)

So, stay tuned, I'll give some real updates and reviews in the next week.


  1. {hugs} from afar, in case you are contagious.

    Also, *raises hand* I like boring videos. :)

  2. Jon, I know so many sick people right now, it's ridiculous! Maybe it's a Midwest thing! Everyone I know has some ear, nose, and throat thing going on! I'm not hugging anyone! ;)

    Feel better!


  3. I've heard that sand before. Feel better!

  4. Oh man, sorry you've been sick! What volunteering are you doing? AND thanks for the link-up to Heather's thing - I'm gonna go check it out!

  5. I'm raising my hand for the stupid sand video...I loooove that sort of thing. And if you need help on the self-pitying, let me know...I've got that down. Being sick stinks. I'm sending you feel better vibes right now.

  6. Hope you feel better. It could be the stress of school, work & writing. I tend to get sick at my most stressful times. Hope you get some rest.

  7. Hope you are feeling better. Thanks for the shout out. It's going to be a great Tour. :)
