Time has flown. It was a week ago today that I attended the 45th Annual Oklahoma Writer’s Federation (OWFI) Conference in Norman, Oklahoma. The conference was excellent, and I attended a number of helpful sessions related to creative writing and the publishing industry. Best of all, I attended a banquet where author Patrick Rothfuss spoke. He’s the author of the popular fantasy series, The Kingkiller Chronicle. Patrick has an excellent sense of humor; ironic and slightly twisted, which I appreciate. Most surprising was that he’d written the story for a children’s book titled The Adventures of the Princess and Mr. Whiffle: The Thing Beneath the Bed, which he shared with us. It was endearing and compelling, and I highly recommend it.
Having completed the manuscript for my fourth Sunset Vampire novel, Wicked Sunset (cover reveal coming soon!), I’m setting creative writing aside for a short time to attack my neglected TBR list. I’ve started with the YA paranormal romance Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
The characters have good chemistry and the story is entertaining, and I recommend it much more than the film. But then, that’s often the case with film adaptations of books, don’t you agree?
So many novels in my TBR list…so little time. However, it’s wonderful to have so many titles to choose from, isn’t it?
What’s on your spring and summer reading list?
