And long too. I ran across this Emberverse series by S.M. Sterling at the library while trying to find an audiobook I hadn't listened to already. The first three books I truly loved. The next three occasionally got a little slow. By now I'm about eight books in and well, you just have to finish the series at this point, though sometimes the heavy details drag the story down a bit. Overall, it's a very good series and I got my husband hooked on it too. By the end of the third book I was looking for information on how to make my own recurve bow. But then I do love a good apocalyptic tale. You have to buy into the reason there was this apocalypse, but once you do, you're hooked. Book one is Dies the Fire and if you're looking for a good book/audiobook give it a try. It would make a great series for HBO. ARE YOU LISTENING HBO!! There are so many books it could go on for YEARS!!!

There's something officially wrong with me. Last summer I decided to go back to school to get my PhD in nursing. I know, right! Like I haven't been to school enough already. However, I wanted some different opportunities for the future and writing books, while I love it, does not pay my bills. A year into this with two years to go (I'm going part time), I'm sometimes wondering what I was thinking. Hopefully, it will pay off in the way of a new and interesting job down the road. In November I'll start my dissertation, but I've been working on it some. I've been away from this blog and not writing books for this past year, but I'm trying to juggle my schedule and finish my third werewolf book as soon as possible. I need a few more hours in my day right now, or maybe I just need to use the ones I have more efficiently. Anyway, I'm going to try and not chew on my computer in frustration when I can't seem to get enough done. Hope everyone has a happy Sunday.
