Leap Year 2012

I couldn't let this day pass without posting. So, here's a photo from about a year ago:

I live in Indiana and this is what we normally see in February. However, today was a little different. Our windows were open, we sat outside in summer lawn chairs and enjoyed the day. It was almost 70 degrees and I had to toss aside my snow boots and dig out my sandals. 

I did get some deadline writing done, some emails done and I'm getting ready to become coordinator for the online ACFW Bookclub (Anyone can join.)

Anything else just didn't get done. Sorry.

If you want to join the book club, we're discussing these books starting March 20th. 

Freeheads by Kerry Neitz
Discussion Leader: Shawna Williams

Marcher Lord Press
442 pg. |
ISBN: 978-1-935929-38-3
Having escaped the storms of Betelgeuse and the schemes of Jannah's inhabitants, Sandfly and HardCandy make their way back to Earth. They have a message to deliver. A society to free.  And A~A3 is with them. Their mission is simple, and just. What could possibly go wrong?

Unexpectedly, DarkTrench drops into normal space. He is malfunctioning, wounded, and the only people who can fix him are still hundreds of light years away. Sand and Hard scramble for a solution while catastrophe hurtles blindly toward them.

They reach Earth to find a different world, an unexpected domain. One they can no longer connect with. 

They are stranded, hopelessly separated beneath a wasteland of death and a planet of rules. Debuggers amidst a cloistered community.

Ultimately, Sandfly is alone, and Earth's freedom relies on him and his newfound faith. But does his mission even matter anymore?

He's a misfit, and a throwback. A symbol for all that's evil.

Perhaps he's the last freehead?

Shadows by Michael Duncan
Discussion Leader: Rachel Bradford

  280 pages
  Publisher: Harbourlight Books (October 1, 2011)
  ISBN-10: 1611161207

A stolen text... When the Book of Aleth is stolen, Aaron, captain of the Royal Guard, is ordered by Emperor Therion to reclaim the ancient tome. The mission thrusts Aaron into a world he's never known--a world of elves and dwarves, races long thought extinct; a world where everything he has known and believed is a lie.

A secret past... Forced to challenge his long-held beliefs, Aaron and his companions, two soldiers of the Royal Guard and two men of the Dwarvish kingdom of Brekken-Dahl, set out on a quest to recover the Book. Aaron resolves to discover the truth, and rescue the empire he is sworn to protect.
