Escapist


I'm feeling a little frazzled. I need a book recommendation for a nice, happy book. Nothing with the word "grim" in the description. I've just finished the Libba Bray books and keep stalling over my amazon cart.

My manuscript is out in queryland right now, and I'm at the obsessively hitting refresh on my gmail and also wanting to stick my head in the sand, phase. And I need some good fiction.

It feels like all the quick responding agents have responded, so I have about 11 partial/fulls out, which is great, but I'm not really hearing anything now and, of course, imagining the worst. Like they're all just using my manuscript to hold their coffee and forgetting to get back to me.

But they would never do that, right? Right. See, I need to just stop thinking about it. And once I get my grey cells back, I'll tell you all about how Red melted her skirt off of her the other day. ;)

have you read any Thursday Next books?

also, I finished the book I was going to recommend to you for Red: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. It is soooooo good! It's probably a little too much for her as an "on her own" book, but I think it would be great as a "read together" book. The main character, Flavia (!!!!), is so wonderful.
