Reading Weekend Summary, Blackadder and an Upcoming Book Release

Reading weekend is over!

I wrote a couple of hundred words, thought of three essential plot points (Round of Words in 80 Days check in!) and read the following:

After the Night by Linda Howard (skimmed the last half, as it got predictable)
Pirate's Price by Darlene Marshall (lots of fun! get it from Amber Quill Press)
Byzantine Provocateur by Melissa Bradley (erotic! look for my review coming soon to the One Hundred Romances Project blog)
Jean Little and Kit Pearson's stories in Dear Canada: Hoping for Home
The Panorama of the Renaissance by Margaret Aston (Folio Society edition)
The Cat Who Moved A Mountain by Lilian Jackson Braun
a number of stanzas from the 14th Century The Book of Good Love

And our book club meeting was discussing Tatiana de Rosnay's Sarah's Key. Next up, Steve Martin's An Object of Beauty.

International Blackadder Status Day is on Tuesday! Should I post "so what was the chicken impression in aid of?" or "fortune vomits on my eiderdown once more"? Decisions, decisions...

In awesome news, Kristen Callihan has a book deal! "Kristen Callihan's debut historical paranormal romance WEST OF THE MOON, hounded by society's dark rumors, a cursed lord must chose to lose his soul and surrender to "the beast" within him to protect the beauty he loves from an unstoppable killer to Alex Logan at Grand Central Publishing, in a nice two-book deal by Kristin Nelson at Nelson Literary Agency (World) Publication slatted for January 2012."

I can't wait for the rest of the world to read this book. Congratulations Kristen!
