I have a short story in the works, too, that's unrelated to my novel, but hopefully should be just as fun. If I finish it first (it should, hypothetically, take less time than a novel), then I'll make it available on Amazon's digital download. :)
That's all for now! See you guys again, soon.

Personally, when people ask what I do, I find myself answering "I'm writing a book". I wonder if, once I have published Uncertain Heirs, my answer will change to "I write books" or if I will make it a prideful announcement of "I'm an author"? I wonder if there'll be a difference for me, or if it will even matter?
Does it matter to you now/will it matter what your label is?

How about the rest of you: reading anything exciting for your holiday weekend? :)

- The Hobbit, for instance. I've had a bookmark in that thing since 2005, and I only ever made it to the wine barrel scene. I never made it to Smaug!
- Then there's the Da Vinci Code, which I'm about four pages in. I think I started it back the same year the movie came out -- when was that? Cripes, 2006! I must've started the book at the beginning of 2007, then.
- Micah is a book by Laurell K. Hamilton that fits into her Anita Blake series -- I bought it, but I never read it because I didn't consider it part of the series (I thought it was only a stand alone). I found out a few years ago it is part of the series. Whoops.
- The complete short stories of H. P. Lovecraft -- love those. I read them before bed because they're nice and short. I'd been reading those in the order they were written, and I left off at The Outsider. Next on that list will be The Music of Erich Zann. That puts me close to halfway through his list of short stories. After that, it'll be the novels.
- I started Around the World in 80 Days two years ago while working for a utility company, but I only made it 6% through (according to my Kindle).
- Then there's Black Beauty, which I'm halfway through.
Ranting aside -- how about you folks? Any unfinished reading you've been itching to complete? Is there a reason you want to finish reading those stories, or did you abandon them because of how bad/boring/whatever they were?

Born and raised in rural West Virginia, Ash has always wondered what things lay hidden in the hills around her. She attended West Virginia University, where she studied the English language before returning home to her family in rural West Virginia.
