And Into December We Go!
With Thanksgiving leftovers still stockpiled in the refrigerator, a few final things this blogger is happily thankful for. All the wonderful reviewers here at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words, the wonderful tour and promotional people and groups that work so hard to help the authors get their stories and books promoted, the publishers, the editors (in every form), the writers producing all these amazing stories that transport us each and every day into other lives and worlds from contemporary to science fiction and everything in between.
And to all the readers of our blog in every format as well. I’m thankful for you all too. I love reading your comments and our interaction and look forward to December and soon another year together.
Hard to believe 2018 is ending soon.
This week we welcome the arrival of December. Oh my.
If you look over this week’s schedule, much like the store’s decorations and merchandise all around you, you will notice the arrival of all the holiday stories has gone from a trickle to a flood. It’s a veritable holiday feast of stories from Amy Lane to KC Wells. There’s even a Hockey Holiday Anthology where 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to charity. December 1st also begins the start of our reviews of Dreamspinner Press’ Advent Calendar stories, one a day until the end of the month. This year’s theme is Warmest Wishes! We will also be reviewing again collections of stories from Mischief Corner Books, a grand selection that usually ranges from pagan to science fiction and many more. That’s just touching on a small tip of our holiday story iceberg that’s awaiting you here!
Not that we will be forgetting our normal reviews for fantasy, contemporary, and other types of LGBTQIA fiction. Nope, those will be included as well. Busy, busy, busy.
Plus we need to start thinking about what stories and covers made our Best of 2018 this year. Do you know which made your list? Start jotting down names because you know I’m going to ask for them soon!
In the meantime, check out our schedule for the upcoming week, contemplate your leftovers if any, and happy reading!
