AIN'T WE GOT FUN
This month is flying by waaaay too fast. I seriously can't believe that Ain't We Got Fun will be available in 4 days ... 4 DAYS! I got my copy yesterday, 3 or 4 days after Emily got her copy ... this is what happens when you live basically in the middle of nowhere. But I got it at long last!!
The blog tour starts this Monday, May 25th and ends on Friday, May 29th. We have lots of fun blog posts and a big giveaway planned, so be sure to check back next week! Thank you to all who volunteered to help out with AWGF's blog tour! You guys are the best!
In other news, I've been diving into the re-writing process of Resist. It's quite the tedious, time consuming project. I wrote the first draft in third person, then played around with telling it in first person, and felt the latter was more engaging. I'm thankful for my mom and sister-in-law who helped me through the, "WHAT POINT OF VIEW SHOULD I CHOOSE?" phase. Seriously, I was all anxious and couldn't get any work done until I figured out which way I was going to tell the story. Writers are strange creatures ...
I've been doing more research, which included watching a documentary on the Battle of France while drinking the best iced coffee ever on Sunday.
I've been so engrossed in WWII that this happened the other day:
Les Miserables is no longer about the French Revolution. It’s now about the French Resistance! “At the barricades of freedom! Shall I join my brothers there? When the REICH begins to FALL. Do I stay; and do I dare? Will you take your place with me?”
Wow. I’m a nerd.
I finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird this month. Basically, I'll be naming my future children Jem and Scout ... or convincing my older siblings to name their children that. =) I'm currently reading Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. I'll probably be doing a review on that once I'm finished. I have a stack of books waiting to be read ....they're all WWII books. No surprise there, right? Also, I really want to read Saint Augustine's Confessions.
So many books, not enough time. Ugh.
Oh, you know, the usual ... The German National Anthem, Die Gedanken Sind Frei, The French National Anthem, and Le Chant Des Partisans.
I'm one of the authors participating in the Read-To-Win event happening over at Homeschooled Authors this summer! Keep an eye out for more information ... you could win a $100 Amazon gift card by reading and reviewing books. =)
I think that about wraps up my writerly and bookish happenings. Be sure to check back on Monday ... fun times coming up!
What have you been reading, writing, and listening to?
