Quick Look: “Scandal” by Amanda Quick

Unless I intended to write an essay, there doesn’t seem to be tremendous point in doing a serious review of a book first published in 1991. Suffice to say I found it entertaining and Emily, our heroine neatly walked a tightrope between being interesting and just...

Ooh, Shiny!

The weekend was cold and wet, which is not usual Southern California weather, so I spent a lot of time curled up on the couch wallowing in old movies and knitting. Made tremendous progress on both my Diagonal Jacket, with the right front now finished. I also finished...

NaNo Hangover

Welcome to the morning after. I know some folk probably wrote like mad last night, trying to get the last bits of words in. I cleared some things off my plate, put in my final count (I totaled 36,473, which I’m quite happy with under the circumstances), and...
