Tomorrow's Guest Blogger
Don't miss Terry Kroenung's post for tomorrow. It has a little to do with his books Brimstone and Lily and Jasper's Foul Tongue, and a lot to do with the Poop Monster. If you need a book for a kid this holiday season, you need to take a look at Terry's books. And here's the book trailer. Honestly, even though it lasts almost three minutes, you must watch it all the way through:
What I'm Reading
I just finished Betty Webb's second mystery in her new Gunn Zoo series, The Koala of Death. I loved it, but then I love all of Betty's books. Her Lena Jones series deals with more serious topics (besides murder, I mean). The Gunn Zoo series is more light-hearted with a cast of quirky characters (including that koala).
Yesterday I started reading Headwind by KK Brees, the first book I downloaded to the Kindle App now on my desktop. If I decide I like reading in the e-book format, I may ask for one for Christmas.
Introduction to Genealogy
I signed up for a three-hour class on Saturday the 30th. See, I have this idea for a novel...
Ideas take us down interesting paths and lead us to interesting people. It was only by chance I saw the notice about the class, so I'm guessing serendipity is at work again. We'll see where this takes me.
Sex at The Blood-Red Pencil
Did you know The Blood-Red Pencil has been featuring a whole series of articles on sex? Well, I mean, writing about sex, writing sex scenes, pros and cons of writing all the details versus closing the door and leaving the whole thing to the reader's imagination, etc. If you're interested, start with the October 18th post on Talking Sexual Overtones with Author Rachelle Chase and work your way forward to the two-part feature on Erotica.
No, I don't have a post in this particular series. I write about murder. My characters have no time for sex scenes because they're busy running away from or tracking down killers...
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The Exercise Ball
I bought one of those exercise balls and am using it as my computer chair at least one hour a day. I'm hoping less slumping and better posture will lead to fewer aches and pains.
My husband is convinced I will eventually forget I'm balanced on the ball and will fall off. Yes, I can be forgetful, but that would be ridiculous.
