Yes, I'm Still Alive

I have a bit of author news. From a bulletin sent out by Adrian Phoenix:

I'm very pleased to announce that Pocket has just purchased books three and four in the Dante and Heather (and Lucien) saga.

Thanks to all of my readers for making this possible! I hope this is just the beginning.
Adrian wrote A Rush of Wings, which Raven reviewed (and loved) back in January. Here are all the Adrian Phoenix posts and my original showcase.

I'm behind on my reading stack, because while I was sick, my vision really fluctuated and I was unable to read small print. (It was a sinus infection.) Therefore, although I tried to read both Mirrored Heavens and Seaborn, I had to set both aside temporarily. I have since resumed reading Mirrored Heavens. Seaborn also looks excellent so I should be able to finish and review it in the upcoming weeks.

I did finish Jynx, the third novel in Jennifer Estep's Bigtime series, and I'll start working on my review this week. I also hope to set up some special kind of event with the author. We emailed about it briefly, but we need to hammer out details.

Jennifer's first two novels, Karma Girl and Hot Mama, have been re-released as mass-market paperbacks and Jynx is set to release on September 2.

(I also re-read a comfortable old classic with large print, but I really don't feel the need to review classics here. If you've never read Pride and Prejudice, read it. Enthusiastically recommended. There. I'm done.)

(Speaking of Jane Austen, my seven-year-old daughter is absolutely hooked on all my Jane Austen movies. She especially loves the A&E adaptation of P&P, but she'll happily watch any of them over and over again. But I digress.)

Anyway, thanks to everyone who continued to visit each day despite no new posts. I was really heartened by all the loyal readers of this blog!

I got strangely addicted to the more recent P&P adaptation -- it's an occasional flaw of mine to go through phases, when, rather than watching zombies or people with guns, I go for romantic comedies or just romance :O

Not that keen on the Hugh Grant type, but I liked Sense and Sensibility quite a lot, too.

I still haven't finished the book (P&P), though! I put it aside for one moment and something else was in my hand!

Is it the one with Kiera Knightley? I have not seen that one. I may rent it; I think two different P&P adaptations are enough for any Austen aficionado.

I have two versions of S&S as well!
