Ah, a red letter day. If you hold to the analogy that a new book is like a new baby, then the picture at the left is my first sonogram. (VBG). The cover of UNCHARTED, due out in June 2006. What’s it about? I like to describe it as “LOST” meets “The Big Chill.”
And there are two other new books on my desk. The first is a nonfiction book called Not In Kansas Anymore: A Curious Tale of How Magic Is Transforming America. I’ve not yet read it, but after a quick skim, I’m thinking it should be called How America Is Trying to Trust Anything and Everything but God.
I’m thinking about setting it out for my book club; should make an interesting faith-discussion. It also looks like it’d be helpful for anyone who writes about the occult, etc.
The other new book on my desk is Jane Smiley’s 13 Ways of Looking at the Novel. Now this is a book to ponder–it looks so dense and lush that I think I’ll be doing well to read/digest a chapter a day–or even half a chapter. Can’t wait to dig into it.
Well, this is “telephone day”–for some reason I have scheduled four telephone appointments today: two conference calls and two long-distance book clubs. I’m so rarely on the telephone, this will be interesting! And tonight–Alias! I certainly hope this season five picks up. So far it’s been a bit of a snooze, but I’ll hang in there for at least a while.
