Friday Musings

Summer is finally upon us! My weekend will be spent reading partials and watching basketball, and so sadly Maynard and Jennica will just have to wait a bit longer. What about you? Any good books picked out for some beach reading this weekend?

Jennifer Jackson's Agent Manners series is ongoing, so pop over and ask her a question. Make sure you follow the rules though.

Salon book reviewers discuss whether literary criticism is dead.

Writer's Digest reviews the best publishing websites, including the top agency blogs. I like almost all of the sites mentioned.

And via Litkicks and the Chicago Tribune, here is an article about two guys fighting the battle against bad grammar.

Finally, don't forget that my No Holds Barred Q&A session is still open. Any questions received before 3:00pm EST will be answered, no matter what.

Well, hard to know if they're really good before I read them (!) but in my virtual beach bag I have BOWL OF CHERRIES by Millard Kaufman, ORIGINAL BLISS by AL Kennedy, and THE TRUE ACCOUNT--A NOVEL OF THE LEWIS & CLARK & KINNESON EXPEDITIONS by Howard Frank Mosher.

My #1 priority this weekend? Writing a review of a certain book, one you just may have heard of: WASHINGTON IRVING: AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL.

Should have it posted by Sunday.

Should finish Lamb by Christopher Moore tonight, and I bought the second book in Nora Robert's Sign of Seven trilogy to read while sitting on the dock at the lake this weekend.

Awesome! I hope you like it!

I'm actually planning to read WASHINGTON IRVING: AN AMERICAN ORIGINAL too. It's the kind of book that takes me away from fiction, and the revises I have to get through before June 15th.
