Recommended Reading List: September, 2019

I’m putting this out a few days later than I planned because I got behind in updating it. I didn’t so much lose track of the reading list as I decided to put sleep ahead of the updates. Part of the issue was that I did an in-person craft workshop this month, which meant I read a lot of great manuscripts, some of which I […]

Recommended Reading List: August 2019

Hectic month. I’m beginning to think they’re all hectic these days. Ah, well. I’m getting some reading done, but not as much as I want. And some books read slower than others. In fact, one of the books I read took almost five days to finish. It’s in a side series that I like. The main series is something I don’t much like. This book […]

Recommended Reading List: July, 2019

I confess: there’s a lot of material here from June. You see, as I was about to write the last few recommendations on the June list, a massively ugly flu hit. I missed the deadline, but the list went up automatically. Incomplete, but declared done by the deadline. You won’t know what’s July or June, though, not that it matters. And I’m doing my best […]

Recommended Reading List: June 2019

The month started with the Licensing Expo. 12 hour days, with no time to relax. I didn’t get much time to read then, but the rest of the month eased. Lots of good reading, more than I thought I could cover here, which is why this is a bit late. I’m also still cogitating about whether or not to post a novel I read through […]

Recommended Reading List: May 2019

May started much better than any other month in 2019. I carved out some time late in the day to get reading done, even if I hadn’t finished my email or any of the other work I had. I was really feeling the lack of leisure reading time and it was starting to have an impact on my writing. Lots of good reading this month, […]

Recommended Reading List: April 2019

Workshops and visitors, plus a business emergency, marked April. I did a lot of manuscript reading, and even more reading for a course that I’m taking. You’ll see some of the manuscripts that I worked on in a special project we’re putting together in December. I’m enjoying the heck out of that. Some of the reading that I did earlier in the year you’ll find […]

Recommended Reading List: March 2019

Busy, busy, busy March. It started with the Anthology Workshop, which took all of my hours in the day, until the workshop ended on March 6. I got back to reading for pleasure on March 7 (no time in the first few days), while juggling line editing a Fiction River, and then working on anthology projects and a really special project that started in the […]

Recommended Reading List: February 2019

I’m starting this at the beginning of the month, but I can already tell this will be a spare version of the list. I’m reading 1.3 million words of fiction this month, since I didn’t have time to start last month for the Anthology workshop which starts (started) on March 1. So the bulk of my reading time is reading manuscripts, some of which you […]

Recommended Reading: January, 2019

I finished my first piece to recommend on January 3. Usually it takes me a week or more. So the start of the month pleased me greatly and bodes well for the rest of the year. However, as the month progressed, I got little traditional reading done (as opposed to reading for workshops or editing projects). I read the remaining anthologies for the series workshop […]

Recommended Reading List: December 2018

Fortunately, December started better than November in regards to the reading. Good nonfiction and fiction, some of which is listed below. (Some is just too…I don’t know. It doesn’t inspire me to share.) I also line edited a Fiction River and started line editing another, since I’m workshop heavy in my reading in January and February. Speaking of Fiction River, I failed to call attention […]
