I’m trying to finish up the rough draft of a manuscript and getting ready to go on a road trip later this week to pick up a new vizsla puppy from a breeder in Northern Utah. I’ve usually adopted adults dogs in the past, but it’ll be fun to pick out a little female and raise her from scratch. Fun and crazy since I still have two other dogs (my old lady is 14, and I thought I was going to lose he...

Darcia Helle Thanks for the add, Lindsay! :)

message 2: by John

John Carroll I noticed you have the Black Company Chronicles on your to read list. They are really, really good. It's one of the few darker novels that I really like and I think Glen Cook got lost a little bit in the middle, but I highly recommend it.

Lindsay Thanks for the note, John!

I read the first...eight or nine Black Company books years ago and noticed Cook had a couple more out since then, so I'm going to grab them when I get a chance. ;) I especially liked the first three with Croaker's dry humor.

Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) love your books & blog. I have reading material forever :D

Lindsay Awww, thank you, Jessieee! (That's a lot of e's, by the way--not the traditional spelling. ;)
