Friday Five

1. Trying hard not to be too down on election results.

But it's been really hard.

Yoga has helped.  One older African American woman, who marched in Civil Right's rallies during the 60s told me to be centered but also to be vigilant and active.

2. Been writing 1K-2K words a day on NaNowrimo project.  This one isn't YA but a romance with historical flashbacks that involve the Italian Resistance.  Younger sister's Italian friend has been helping with some info on the Resistance and other things that are Italian.

Hint on what is in story:

3 Also been reading more Cybils nominated books!

STILL LIFE WITH TORNADO

STILL LIFE WITH TORNADO is an unique take on a dysfunctional family.  The ending was totally wowza worthy.

4.  ALL WE HAVE LEFT

I really loved this contemporary YA that begins now and then flashes back to 9-11.  What's great about this novel is that it shows the power of hope and forgiveness among the ugliness of hate.  Both times interconnect and how learning the truth of what happened to one brother on that fateful day brings a family back together.

Highly recommend!

5.   A TYRANNY OF PETTICOATS.



I'm a huge fan of short story anthologies and this one totally is a must read.  There's fifteen short stories that show badass women through history.  One is a pirate.  Another is a paid assassin right at beginning of Civil War.  Yet another is a spy but not who you'd expect.

**Self-promo plug:  My YA paranormal is the featured book on my publisher's site!
