Sunday Post #51

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Easter to those that honor the holiday. Hope you have a lovely time with your family and friends.

Last week....went well for reading, I think. I'm getting through beta reads here and I have one more to go. I will read the first 3k words of my work again, add a few things more (I've already brought it up to 4800+ words). But I need to move on. I can't be stuck in this part of the story. And...I've started notes for another story, standalone of course.

This week to come I'll get through the one beta I have left and on to some books for authors I'll see at Balticon. Eep! BALTICON!!! It's Memorial Weekend and it's getting closer!

What's Happening in Books:

Current Read:
This week was focused on a few beta reads. I have a bit more to do as well.

AND have been reading as chapters come up:
Soulless by Skyla Dawn Cameron (2 chapters a week for free on her site!)

Current Podcast Book Listen:
I'm re-listening to The Coffee Legacy by Katharina Bordet in excitement of Danube Waves coming our way.
