Really enjoying an old classic: Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markandaya. Beautiful writing, filled with details of rural life in India, at a time when industry was encroaching upon villagers.

I had my first Bookbub.   :banana:

I made a blog post detailing the results and the things I did to get ready for it.  Screenshots, too, for those who are interested.




I'd like to thank everyone who downloaded the book, and I'd especially like to thank everyone who has already purchased books 2 and 3 of the trilogy.  I hope you enjoy Dale's adventures in space.  :)

Thanks to all my readers, regardless of which of my stories you've read.  I appreciate you all more than you'll ever know.  From the bottom of my heart, thanks for supporting my work.   :cheers

I just finished Mary Balogh's Someone to Care, about a couple in their forties.  Very good.  I'm currently enjoying Dean Koontz's Forever Odd.  Because of the second one, I've learned that azaleas are poisonous.  You learn something new every supernatural mystery.

It has a twisty plot if you're not familiar with the manga/anime, but after a while it reveals all the character relationships and their motivations. The budget is certainly up on the screen, but that might make it a challenge to get enough of a financial return to spawn the sequel they want. Like any science fiction, it requires some suspension of disbelief, so roll with it if you want to have fun. I may go see it again, next time in 3D.

Recently saw this:





It's being hailed as a masterpiece. I found it boring.

I've enjoyed everything Cuaron has written/directed (starting with Y Tu Mama Tambien). But I disliked Roma. I couldn't connect emotionally with any of the characters.

Rating: 4/10

Roma is currently on Netflix.

Flood Tide by Cussler. Not his best, not his worst. I think I bought it because it was $1.99 on iTunes a while back when I felt the need to read a thriller, but I may be confusing it with another of his books.

Has an interesting crossover with his Oregon stories, but I'm not sure quite where it fits in time-wise relative to those books; I think I only ever read one of them.

Hunter-Killer, about a US sub sent to find out what happened to another one that went missing near the coast of Russia.

Not bad, not great, some decent war-pr0n. But it did leave me with one unanswered question.

Do submarines really have pipes running through them that seem to serve no purpose other than to spring a leak when depth-charged? Every submarine movie seems to have them, but it's hard to imagine what legitimate purpose they serve.

Also Harry Potter 5, just because it appeared on Netflix recently. It was pretty boring, to be honest, but perhaps some of that is because I've never seen #3 and #4.

Book Promotion Board [Public] / My first novel: Seeds of Change

Seeds of Change by Willow Thomson
Release date: 2/17/19
Genre: soft science fiction



Wide: books2read.com/u/3nnvZ5

Jey is an introverted, intuitive healer with nothing left to lose. All her healing skill couldn’t save her mother from a virulent manmade virus. The heat index of 2071 Earth has reached crippling levels. Jey is barely coping—until she stumbles upon an opportunity to join the crew of Two by Two, the first colony ship set to launch from the ailing Earth.

The mission—to create an idealistic artisan colony on an unexplored exoplanet—fits right in with Jey’s dreams. Her friendship with a clairvoyant child onboard the ship, her growing empathic abilities, and her bumbling attempts at love bring her hope.
 
But when a rival corporation sabotages the ship, and their target planet is a blasted wasteland, Jey finds herself at the center of the conflict.

Can she set aside her old self destructive patterns? Can she take a leap into a new way of being—and seeing to save her colony? Join Jey and her shipmates on the journey to Aride to find out.

Seeds of Change is a soft science fiction novel with a splash of metaphysics and magic. It is a coming of age story with big themes, small pleasures, and an ensemble cast of characters living in a world you won’t want to leave.

Enjoy!
