School Stuff

So apparently there have been some legitimate comments among the dozens of random spam bot comments made on my blog in the last couple of months. Please forgive my silence, I haven’t combed through that section of my blog in a while and it seems that wordpress isn’t quite savvy enough to distinguish between good english, gibberish, and chinese.

I apologize also for the state of my poor little blog. I have no idea what happened to the majority of the pictures, my theory is tiny little picture eating monsters that sneak into the wordpress update code. I’ll fix it I promise! …eventually…soon, I swear!

Ah, graduate school. The reason Mercator book number two is still in editing. I’m sorry for that too. The book is soooooo close to being done, just a little revision here or there. There is a title: West to Thorn’s Peak. There are pretty pictures/maps. And I think the storyline is way more exciting than East to Adonia. I’ve got a month of graduate school left which includes two 15 pg plus papers and a 6 hr comprehensive exam.

So please don’t give up on Mercator and me. Once I’m free of the chains of higher education, I’ll be hitting the road running. 🙂

Thanks for your patience!

… well, ok, just IN Mt. Ayr, but still awesome just the same.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to speak with my cousin Sue (Teacher Extraordinaire) Buck’s seventh and eighth grade classes. My tongue and throat are still sore from the 6 classes I spoke in, and my writing had is a little sore from signing all those bookmarks, but I had a blast. It was my first experience speaking to a school group, quite a few of the kids have actually read East To Adonia, and it went better than I could ever have expected. The kids were great, even the one or two that fell asleep. I didn’t mind, I remember how hard it was to stay awake by the end of the day (and the beginning, and the middle). 🙂

Look for exclusive footage featuring some of the students to appear on this blog in the next week or so!

NEXT UP: Denver StarFest Apr. 15-17!
