Purple Gallinule, Maybe the Most Beautiful Bird On the River

There’s still time to come along on a Meet the Author Eco Tour of the St. Johns River! Doing one more tomorrow, at 1:30 PM, departure from Highbanks Marina in DeBary. If you’re in the area, please join us. We’d love to show you one of Florida’s most beautiful wildlife habitats, and along the way, talk a little bit about Swamp Ghosts, the book I set in the middle of it. But I promise, the river will be the star, in all its glory.

Saturday’s tour was terrific! We saw several alligators, and all the usual suspects…turtles, little blue herons, white ibis, great blue herons, gallinules, at least five manatees, including a baby, and a family of stunningly beautiful barred owls. I think a good time was had by all, but alas, I have no pictures to show you…

I’m really getting excited about these river tours, now, and I’m going to throw myself on your mercy yet again to share this post everywhere you can. I want to be sure we fill the boat for Captain Jeanne and Doug. Thanks so much for any help you can give me. Next week at this time, we’ll be about halfway through our river tour, having no doubt spotted all sorts of wildlife and birds, and learned some of the river’s history from Captain Jeanne. Maybe Doug will have called up some barred owls to amuse us, or maybe we’ll have spotted something rare and unusual along the way. I will have done a short reading from Swamp Ghostsat the start of the tour, and probably spent a few minutes talking about the fictional town of Riverbend, Florida, or even explained a bit about the differences between albino and leucistic reptiles, which…

Just look what they brought me today! My proof of A Boy Named Rabbit, which, btw, looks GREAT!

Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong

menoftheotherworld
My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

I’ve had this Kelley Armstrong anthology on my Kindle for months. Decided to read it this weekend, and I’m sorry it took me so long. I loved this book! It’s an anthology of sorts, but for me, it was mostly the backstory of one of the main male characters in Armstrong’s Otherworld series, Clayton.  And, unlike some backstories which serve mainly to let  you know a character’s history, Clay’s is riveting as a tale all on its own. A entire novel about his life would have worked for me, he’s that interesting.

The little boy werewolf–bitten, not born, and thus a rarity nearly unheard of–is completely endearing in all his fear, anger, and most of all, confusion as to the why’s of just about everything. His growing love and fierce devotion to the man who rescues him from near-certain death is heartwarming, risky,  and even amusing at times, and his path to adulthood is filled with danger and frustration.

As always, Armstrong’s world building is solid and completely believable, and all of her characters are multi-dimensional, even the bad guys. Now I remember why I enjoyed the Women of the Otherworld so much, and am thinking I have to go back and re-read the entire series, including some more recent additions I haven’t gotten to yet. I highly recommend this anthology, though I do think it would make a lot more sense if you’ve already read the first few Otherworld novels. At least, the first one, Bitten.

Milestones!

Last week turned into the Formatting Week From Holy Heck, *grin*, but hopefully, I’m back this week. And here are some milestones, I’m celebrating along the way.

Sometimes, you just have to stop and marvel at Life, don’t you? The speed at which Time whooshes by, or the realization that yet another milestone has been reached. It’s all such a miracle to me. Several milestones caught my attention today, and I thought I’d share.

For one thing, this blog is coming up on its six month anniversary, and I’m so pleased with how much it’s grown, and how generously our members share of their time and knowledge. We are adding new members at over 100 a month, which makes me very happy, and I hope it just keeps getting better and better.

I’ve been absent a bit these last couple of weeks as I pushed to get A Boy Named Rabbitready for print, and that brings me to my next milestone. I just uploaded Rabbit’s  final files and cover image to CreateSpace today, and hopefully, they will…

Graphic Stuff Again!

In preparation for Thor’s Day, tomorrow…THOR! And a quote from Swamp Ghosts.

The Write Stuff

thorpersonified

Took down the earlier graphic because I had to change something, so thought I’d share this one with you, instead. This will come as no surprise to some of you (Ned Hickson), but I really enjoyed writing a book where the main guy looked pretty much  like Thor. Okay, not in full Viking regalia, maybe…but definitely Thor-ish. In blue jeans. With shorter hair. And no beard. But other than that…Thor! Something that my heroine definitely noticed the first time she saw him, though she was pretty sure she hated him, anyway. (Silly woman.)
