October's Wrap-up

A month of merriment, candy, and costumed children. And now it's over and we all turn our thoughts to the count down to Turkey - or we start tapping out words because it's NaNoWriMo!

Anyway, let's talk about last month....


Words Written: 34,647

31,717 of those were new words, the other 2,930 were in revision additions. And most of the words went into one or another of the upcoming Flynn books.

Drafts Finished: 0

Nada.

Books Revised: 2

Going through the second to last changes on one book and the second on another.


Print Books Acquired: 8



Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson - 
I grabbed this at a steal and after Jason Hough's recommendation, I couldn't pass it up. I've read the first two pages and it looks like it will be intense and interesting. Excited to get a chance to sit down with it.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon -
I will not lie: I bought this because of the tv series. I haven't watched the series, so I guess, I bought it because of the gif/picture sets on pinterest and tumblr. And I love the idea that Gabaldon was inspired to write it after watching Doctor Who!

Seven Letters from Paris by Samantha Verant - 
I've talked to Samantha here and there on the internet for the past several years and was so excited when she sold her memoirs. I am really excited to read the in-detail version of a story I know vaguely from past conversations.

Chorus by Emma Trevayne - 
After giving away my ARC of this a little while ago, I kept looking at Coda on the shelf and thinking about it's missing sister. And this month, I finally got around to snagging a copy so that I can read it again whenever I fancy.

Treasure Island by Robert Lewis Stevenson -
I don't generally love the hardbacks that Costco's publishing house puts out, but this one is kind of pretty and it was a classic I didn't yet own, so I grabbed it.

Extra Ordinary Comics Vol 1-3 by Li Chen - 
DH and I supported the latest kickstarted and this was one of our pledge rewards. And I'm so happy we did it. The books are gorgeous!
