Sweet Bliss

I did blast through my writing goal today, but it was on WoW writing, so I have no progress to report on Project 3. However, any writing at all is spectacular, considering that I had Small Favor calling to me from my desk drawer all day at work.

I adore Jim Butcher. He is what I want to be when I grow up. And if you have never read any of the Dresden Files books (Storm Front is the first one) I'm not sure we can be friends anymore.

And if urban fantasy isn't your forte, or you prefer more traditional fantasies, you should try out his Codex Alera series. The first of this is Furies of Calderon. I'm just kicking myself that it took me so long to pick those up.

Ok, this is my author-crush-geek-post for a while. I tore through Small Favor in a few hours, and I may go back and read it again. Lotta stuff happened, and I want to make sure I can take it all in.

Evil wench...you should see my reading list already! Damn it!

BTW-Jim Butcher is in San Diego at my friend's favorite bookstore, and I think they are going on Saturday afternoon. I don't know if I can go, as there are tickets involved, but I can ask them to get you something signed if you would like.
