I'm referring to my youngest son. He sent me an email yesterday. Apparently a little while ago, one of his coworkers was asking how his mom (that would be me) was doing. He told her about the 'library' Lisa and I built, that it was filled with romance books (that would have been an interesting conversation) and that I'm taking a creative writing course. His coworker sent him an email about a one day seminar they are holding here in the city about writing and revising and getting published. I think I'll take that too.
To be honest, I wasn't sure how much he was taking in of what's going on with me so I was tickled when I got his email. He also bought me a Nora Roberts a couple of weeks ago - just because. And it was one I didn't have.
He's the accountant of the two. He's known since he was 4 years old what he wanted to do. At age 4 he was better in math than I was. He's got his eye set on being the CEO of the company he works for and I can see him doing it. They are paying for his university education so he is taking that on-line as well as being the head of the finance department and he's only 26! I think he's a changeling.
Now my oldest son is my Peter Pan. I love him just as dearly but I think when he hit about 14 he just kind of stopped growing up. I look at him sometimes after he's said something a 14 year old would think and just shake my head. I think he's a changeling too. Although I am sitting here listening to the newest Loreena McKennit CD which just came out that I bought tonight using a HMV gift certificate he gave me.
And in an entirely different vein, why oh why can't publishers just stop publishing books? Just for one month. Just one. I was at Walmart tonight buying cat food for the Princess when I just happened to check out their rather good book department. Darn them anyway! Of course I couldn't get out of there without buying more. And none of these were even on My List!
Lord Grenville's Captive by Nicola Cornick.
This one looks interesting. I think it take's place during the Civil War in England between the English Civil War.
Her Lone Protector by Pam Crooks.
Yea! A Western. And Sybil has these ones too. And is it just me or is he popping up EVERYWHERE as a cover model?
Erinsong by Diana Groe.
A Viking romance - interesting and not your average historical. Her last one got very good reviews (and is still sitting in my TBR pile *sigh*)
Anyone But You by Jennifer Crusie.
I was delighted to find this one as it's one of hers I haven't read.
So now you're probably wondering why I didn't get them at Chapters and use my gift card to see if I won $1,000. Well - Walmart has them on for 25% off and Chapters for 10%. So if I see the books at Walmart, they have the better price. Darn them anyway.
