On Surrounded by Books Reviews, I have my review of Hooked by Les Edgerton. If you're a writer and haven't read Hooked yet, then I strongly suggest you get a copy. It's brilliant.
I also saw The Hunger Games movie on opening night last week. It was awesome! I thought it represented the books well, the sets and costumes were superb, and the acting was fantastic. The thing that interested me the most was the dynamic of who came to watch the movie: teens, males and females. When I went to see the Harry Potter films, all different types of people watched them. When I saw the first Twilight movie, it was mostly girls and women of various ages. It'll be interesting to see if the teen trend continues with the other two movies in The Hunger Games series.
Since this is the last Wednesday in March, I thought I should remind you Wednesday's Writing Update will be on hiatus until May because of the A to Z Challenge. If you want to keep updated on my writing news, then I suggest you either "like" my Facebook Author Page, follow me on Twitter, or subscribe to my newsletter (links to all on the left column of this blog).
My A to Z theme this year is Flashes of Foxwick. Yes, 26 days of fantasy flash fiction. I also plan to self-publish this collection, which will include the bonus short story "Lady Death." The collection will be available sometime in April. If you sign up for the newsletter, you'll get an exact date as well as a sample of "Lady Death."
In April, I will be editing Fighting Gravity, which will be available on May 1st. Christine Rains gave me my first review of Fighting Gravity here. I hope to get some blog posts done for May. I also hope to finish writing Pull of Gravity (the final book in the Gravity trilogy) and write two more short stories for Women of Foxwick ("Lady Bard" and "Magic Seeker"). It'll be a busy month but a fun one.
What have you been up to? Do you plan to participate in the A to Z Challenge? If so, do you have a theme?
