Two more days and other tales
Voting remains open for another two days on Word Nerd's "What Classic to Read Next" poll. Word Nerd's going to be on another airplane soon and this will likely be one of the books she takes with her. Maybe that figures into your vote... High entertainment value is good.
As before, other suggestions for what book(s) to take on the plane are welcome.
The revision meter is slowly starting to creep upwards. Word Nerd is finding that it's hard to get in the swing of these changes. She's going to have to put in some effort this weekend to get through the changes on the next 15 pages to make the end of the month goal of being done with the first revisions to the first two chapters. Or maybe she needs to make her chapters shorter...
Word Nerd's staring at a a mostly blank calendar of Wednesdays for the rest of the year which means she needs authors to interview. A little teaser here -- Mitch Albom will be the featured author next week (Oct. 4) and Word Nerd's got interview requests out to Jim Butcher, Charles de Lint and Nick Bantock. With the number of authors out there, she'll find some to interview, but reader suggestions always take higher priority.
For the Oshkosh readers, mark your calendars. Author Tate Hallaway will be at Apple Blossom Books (513 N. Main St.) for a book signing of her new book, "Tall, Dark and Dead" from 10:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Oct. 7. Word Nerd featured Hallaway in an Author Answers column several weeks ago.
