I haven't posted in a week and that's quite out of character (sort of). Although, I have a good reason why. Yesterday we made it official: My wife and I are moving our family to Colorado Springs.
We have been thinking about a transition for some time now, but this decision came on rather suddenly and despite the incredible speed of it, we're feeling total peace about the change.
I accepted a role working with the book line at David C. Cook, and we're excited to make the shift from southern California to Colorado. In the interim, we have a vacation planned for the family, which will include beach time, Disneyland, lots of time to read manuscripts and catch up on answering queries, and of course, simply spending some time with my family.
The Springs itself will be a great place to continue working on my writing and consulting, while also tackling a fun, new challenge at Cook with some wonderful friends there.
In order to make this post about writing, at least a little, here's an update on my reading this week:
I am finishing up George R. R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, which I had put down for a time - but I am now loving every page of it...however then I saw a new book by Dave Eggers on the shelf while I was in Denver...
So I just picked up Zeitoun, Dave Eggers' nonfiction book about Hurricane Katrina through the eyes of a Syrian-born, New Orleans-based Painter and his family. I'm eighty pages in and it's a wonderful read! Go get it!
Next I will be consuming Robin Parrish's new novel Offworld, which I'm actually excited to read. I love me a little science fiction.
So anyway, to all my Southern California friends and family, it's been awesome. We love you, and will miss you greatly... and of course...good luck with the CA budget crisis!
Kidding. : )
