I'm not seeing a thread for posting links to blogs, so starting one. Mods, if there's already a thread, please merge. Thanks.


I entered a writing contest to encourage others and here's my entry: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2018/09/you-are-enough.html

Today's entry was dialogue from a creepy character in my series. :)

I just posted some photos of fall foliage.

Goodness gracious, those are gorgeous photos! You certainly have an eye for photography. Autumn is so beautiful. As a lover of locomotives as well, I appreciated the picture of the train.  Grin

I posted on my blog today releasing two new things for readers: official artwork from my fantasy series, and the excerpt for the upcoming sixth and final book of the series. It was a pretty substantial update. I always love releasing art because it makes the site so beautiful and colorful (and it's just exciting seeing my characters come to life!).

Fantasy/dystopian/sci-fi. Writer of bloody warfare & witty banter. Provoker of questions.

Glad you liked my photos, Rosie. The weather and foliage was really gorgeous this weekend.

The train was a regular regional commuter train, though the different types of waggons and locomotives are interesting. There is a vintage steam train operating in my area, which is very cool, when you catch it.

I used to be a conscientious blogger, blogging 4 days a week, but I wasn't getting a lot of interactions, so I've become pretty lazy...

Congratulations Cora! It's neat how these came from writing prompts. I think I am unable to write any story without some food in it. lol.

Mark, a lot of people don't interact but they still read so if you enjoy it, why not? Sometimes I feel if I don't blog my head might explode so I do. Still enjoying it after 10 yrs.

Today I wrote about loving librarians and my dream of winning the Printz: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2018/10/i-love-librarians.html

I didn't set out to write about the books that shaped me but that's what it turned out to be.

I toss up a blog post every few days, but most of them aren't things I think anyone here would be particularly interested in.

My last post was just an embedded video from the YouTube channel "The Great War."  Never forget the horror show that was WWI.   :icon_cry:

My first foray into the world of audiobooks came to fruition this week with publication of the audio version of The Cleansing. An opportune time, then, to blog about the process that went into producing it.

My just released perpetual calendar (paperback) that was a loooong time coming.
Partly due to not fully trusting the new KDP print, sorry KDP, it was a lot easier & quicker than I thought it would be.
Partly due to it being 400 pages & 365 of those pages having an original (by me) quatrain.
(A mammoth task that took longer than I thought it would but I still reached by self-imposed deadline for completion).

Was the book I am Legend better than the movie. I just wasn't impressed with the movie at all. I liked World War Z so much better.
