Time-Traveling on a Lazy Sunday

#NowReading Octavia Butler’s 1979 classic KINDRED. Just a little light sci-fi featuring time-travel and the antebellum South. Never forget that the late, great Octavia E. Butler is a great American treasure.

Btw, I’m known to drink 2-3 cups of tea a day. I’ve already had 3 this morning!

Have a good day, my lovelies.

A Princely Evening

Having myself a Princely evening. I own the one on the left but paused around 1985 in the chronology (Around the World in a Day era). Starting the one on the left tonight cuz I was next in the library’s long queue of holds. I’ll finish whatever remains someday when I buy it.

Now Reading: Words for Pictures (2014, BMB)

I am 35 (of 210) pages in of Words for Pictures: The Art and Business of Writing Comics and Graphic Novels (2014) by Brian Michael Bendis (Jessica Jones, upcoming Superman) and it is actually a pretty good read so far. Bendis tends to get a bad rap from a small but vocal segment of comic book fandom, but given his massive success in both the indie & corporate side of the comics publishing game with nearly two and a half decades of experience, the guy has much wisdom to impart on the subject of writing comics and graphic novels. Dude holds a professorship for comics/graphic novels courses at Oregon. There aren’t many books out there like this one and if you’re an intellectual you will glean information from any reliable source. #BookwormRuckus #ReadToFeed #ReadToSeed #ReadToSucceed

Now Reading: The Road to Alexander

~ Bookworm Ruckus | 2.19.17 ~

Something I’ve always dug is alternate history. That’s exactly what my friend Jennifer Macaire’s Time for Alexander series of novels is — a time-traveling trip through an altered history in which a modern  woman from our time becomes the object of Alexander the Great’s affections.

Book One in the series, The Road to Alexander is the first to be remastered and reissued digitally worldwide on March 9th, via Accent Press. Available for pre-order now. (US) (UK)

I’ve invited Mrs. Macaire to chat about and share excerpts of this intriguing novel here on the blog, so make sure to be on the lookout for that later this week on Thursday.
