Next Up

 Today, I walked around the lake.  I decided that 20 degree weather on a sunny day isn’t that bad and walked the big loop.

I signed up for an online class on Udemy.  Editing Mastery: How to Edit Writing to Perfection.  A class that was normally $94 dollars was on sale for $9.99.  It’s a seven hour course on my favorite subject of editing.  For me, it’s a part of the skillset that is most important to me: to be able to edit.  I will look for other online courses through out the year to improve other skillsets.


Next up for listening.  After Sixty-One Nails, I will be listening to The Seine by Elaine Sciolino.  After that will be The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie which is currently free on Audible.  And then Untamed Shore by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.


Next up for reading.  After The Pale Horse, I will read Endless Night by Agatha Christie.


Today the final season of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been released.  So I will be watching that from today until Saturday.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m

Anticipated Books of 2021

For me, the two most anticipated books are both by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  The first one is Certain Dark Things to be released 7 September and the second is Velvet is the Night to be released 17 August.  Both are after my birthday so they can’t be my birthday book.  Which is too bad.  Garcia proved she could very write well with Mexican Gothic .  I’m inclined to believe she is the best writer out there. Currently I’m listening to Untamed Shores , Garcia’s thriller that was released last year.  It is similar to Mexican Gothic except without the elements of horror. Speaking of the birthday book, I finally chose the one.  And this time there will be no hiccups.  This year’s birthday book will be: The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory.  The book is set to be released on 18 May.  Three months before my birthday and if the book is to be pushed out, I think it would about a month or so.  It’s a murder mystery that involves a boy band formed by the animal people from The Island of Doctor
