No, not here. Sadly the interview with Phil Rickman is not with me, but wonderfully is over at Kittling's Books, here. It is a fabulous interview. He has a great sense of humour. And yes, there is a new book in the Merrily Watkins series coming out next May: The Turning of the Hay. Yeesss!!!
In other news - how life affects reading
There is a hole in the foundation of the house and we have it sandbagged to keep rain from going into the foundation. We have some contractors coming to look and give estimates.....this happened two weeks ago, and we are still trying to deal with it. It's suspected the recent drought we suffered through here in Eastern Ontario is to blame, not that that will fix it or the crack that is running through the foundation on the other side of the house. It's meant that I can't concentrate on reading very well. Because we are going through our divorce, the decision to sell the house or not was still on-going, and now even that has been pushed back, as the house has to be fixed before any other decisions can be made. It's been a rough year, and this was so unexpected. I suspect this is why I've been reading so many short stories in the past two weeks. I am finding it hard to concentrate on reading for any length of time. I also seem to have 8 books on the go again, a sign that I am stressed and not able to settle into anything big.
Does life affect you like this too? I hate it when I can't read for very long. I feel like I am missing a piece of myself when that happens.
