My Favorite Book

Today I'm over at So Write. Us with an article rhapsodizing about my favorite book of all time: Shadowland by Peter Straub, which is not to be confused with C.S. Lewis's Shadowlands

Also, So Write. Us is hosting a 'best first chapter' contest. If you're interested in submitting the first 1000 words of your work, please see the details here. Tomorrow is the last day to enter and the prize is $50!

How was your Thanksgiving? After a long, hard day of cleaning, cooking, and calling each other poopy-head, we managed to have an incredibly tasty dinner. And I made it myself! Okay, the cranberry came out of a can, but the stuffing was made from scratch. And taking a turkey breast, dumping on basting oil and enough garlic to fend off vampires, and throwing it into the oven doesn't make me Chef Ramsey. But my kids ate it. Score!

 I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and can still fit into you writing chairs.


  1. If your kids ate it, then it really is a score! Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Congrats on cooking T-day dinner by yourself and managing the kids! That's a gorgeous photo of a turkey.

  3. Thanks for stopping by! For some reason, that turkey behind makes me think of a supermodel wearing a crazy eloborate outfit. Maybe it's the long legged strut!

  4. Turkey butt!!!

    If you can kids to eat it, then you know it was good.

  5. Oh, I LOVE Peter Straub! He's my favorite scary author, but I haven't read Shadowland. I will have to see if my library has it.

  6. I'll check out the link. I remember reading some Straub books in high school and loving them. I don't recall reading Shadowland.


I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
