Friday Five

1. Well, the plague has hit our household.  Son's been out all week.  Husband had it for OVER  a week.  Both went to the doctor.  Both were told it's NOT the flu but has very similar symptoms--fever, sore throat, aches, headache, fatigue, and no voice.

Sounds like the flu to me.

2. I was able to go to coffee house to get some more editing done.  Plus, need to get out of house!

Almost at midpoint in this latest round of revising.  Whew.  Cut out almost 10K of this novel.  Going over feedback from critique buddy and another YA author that I had read it over.

3. Signed up to go to RWA16!  It's in San Diego this year which is like an hour drive away.  Need to push my fears of driving to a different place by myself aside and do it!  But the cost of the hotel is very $$$.  This means I can only go for 2 days.  Still, it'll be a nice get away and I can mingle with other romance writers!

4. Didn't read as much this week due to this stupid viral infection.

Here's a couple books that I did read:

STARFLIGHT by Melissa Landers

Really loved this Sci-Fi romance/adverture that has a YA Firefly vibe going for it!

YA Books Central review coming soon!

5.  STARS ABOVE by Marissa Meyer:

My YA Books Central review:

Teaser: A very satisfying peek into the backstories of the characters from the Lunar Chronicles. 

Also finished reading a fun adaption of Macbeth:

My YA Books Central review:

Teaser: A must add to any library and high school collection. A fun way to make a Shakespeare tale more engaging and accessible to all!

**Guilty pleasure:

Hope to attend another mediation session later today and then afterwards grab some yummy Won-Ton soup from the Thai/Chinese restaurant next-door.
