One month away from my birthday, the prompt shall be: publication.
I have to admit that a 26 degree day this late in the year is quite nice, thank you very much.
A book arrived in the mail this week that I've been anxiously awaiting for some time now. To the point that I had to take a picture of it shortly after opening the package:
Paddytum originally began on Protagonize, though it was taken down shortly after Tricia found someone willing to publish it (I assume this was very easy, seeing as any fool ought to have been jumping at the chance to publish something so brilliant). I'd told her on a couple of occasions that I felt guilty about reading her writing for free, so when I finally had a chance to pay for it I didn't hesitate.
I'm 100 pages in already, though the majority of that was the part of the story I'd already read on Protag. I'm going to attempt to slow down a bit, as I hate rushing through a book - I just get sad at the end that it's over so soon.
Anyway, I don't need to get anywhere near finished to recommend this book to anyone and everyone. Tricia is a fantastic writer and it gives me so much joy to own a book with her name on it. I'm sure many more will follow, and I plan to get them all.
