Ahem. I’ve been getting a few things off my shiny New Year Plate so I can put some bigger things on it. A short story is ready to head out the door. A draft proposal off to my agent.
Now, I need to get my head down and finish revisions for My Beloved Assassin
What about the big lunch, you ask? Let me tell you!
Some of you may know that last year I won lunch with Barry Eisler through Brenda Novak’s Diabetes auction. Various things prevented an immediate luncheon, but this weekend we hooked up and I ordered the biggest lunch possible. (Not really.)
He signed some of his books for me (squeeee!!!!) and gave me the ARC of Inside Out. We had a lovely lunch. He’s a really nice guy. You can bet your bippy I’ll be trolling the auction lists against this year for more wonderful things to bid on.
Yesterday, an embarrassingly short time after I got home from lunch, I started reading Inside Out and just kept turning pages. I finished at 1:45 this morning.
Inside Out is the book that follows last year’s Fault Line which I loved when I read it. This one features Ben Traven as the hero and well, I’ll do a full review when I have a bit more time, but I loved this book. It’s on a par with Lee Child. Ben is now in Carolyn’s Hero Hall of Fame too. If you like action books then when it comes out in June this year, get your hands on it.
I’m now getting myself to bed early as I did not exactly get enough sleep today and don’t wish to be wreck tomorrow.
I hope everyone’s inaugural week of 2010 has been lovely!
