This has been a slow week for new downloads… which has been ok actually. It gives me a chance to go back and read some of the earlier downloads still hanging around. The most enticing are read very quickly after download. Then at the other end, there are those not quite so enticing, abandoned after a few chapters, somehow finding themselves fading into oblivion.
The list of those waiting for my return is much longer than I realized. There is probably nothing much wrong with any of them, it’s just that, for one reason or another, I couldn’t connect with them. When I think about it, they all seem to have something dark about them, and I’m not handling dark well these days. Most likely it’s due to buried, early childhood memories resurfacing unexpectedly in the last few weeks. It’s not a bad thing, dealing with old emotional baggage, it just means easily triggered, that’s all.
Maybe it’s a good thing I’m listing the books downloaded rather than books read. That way you see them all, not just the ones I managed to finish.
Changing the subject a little:
There was a suggestion from different direction today. It came from FaceBook, Chautona Havig’s page. It is exciting to see another one of the yearly Christmas Collections is about to be published. It’s been put together by a group of Chuatona’s friends. They delight in writing together and they do an excellent job. There are a number of collections produced through the course of the year, with a changing selection of writer’s. Their group of friends is large and whoever happens to be available with a short notice story idea fitting the chosen theme, can be included. The short notice part is why it rotates and the group can be so large.
All is Bright (Christmas Lights Collection Book 4) is to be pre-ordered, it will be out and delivered on Oct 22nd.
There are four novellas by four authors and it’s $1.31 Canadian
While I was searching for All is Bright I came across another collection by a beloved single author this time.
A Colleen Coble Christmas Collection: Silent Night, Holy Night, All is Calm, All is Bright
There are four novellas and it is $1.99 Canadian
I don’t have to wait for this one to arrive, it’s already published. I know we haven’t even had Thanksgiving yet but, in my mind, it is never too early to enjoy Christmas stories. This book is up next for me. Maybe tonight even.
Well, tomorrow should be a better day, the weekly LPC email maybe will be here and it always has multiple books to offer.
See you tomorrow. If LPC doesn’t come through for us, I have another book I’m excited to tell you about.
Happy Reading, just don’t stay up all night!
