Happy Friday everyone. I hope you all had a grand 4th of July and enjoyed some good reading time.
I am happy to announce that Bill from Brooklyn, NY, is the winner of the Linda Castillo books. There was quite a great turnout for this giveaway. I see a lot of you are hot to get your hands on these books! So congratulations to Bill. I think I'm actually going to give them a try on audio. I've heard they are very well narrated.
O.k. so on to the fun part of Friday - Five on Friday. I'm super excited this week (I know I say that every week, but really aren't these authors all wonderful?). I'm super excited this week because our guest is David Corbett. I've read several of David's short stories and have in turned bought all of his books and they are patiently waiting for me to get to them in the TBR pile. Based on his short work, I know he is exceptionally talented, so if you're hoping to be published some day, you may want to check out his upcoming non-fiction book, THE ART OF CHARACTER: Mastering the Craft of Characterization for Fiction Film and TV. That's out in early 2013. In the meantime you can study his fiction writing. It's available in print, ebook and audiobook.
I'm also fortunate in that I am able to interact with David as one of xuni.com's clients. So I know that he as a personality roughly the size of Jupiter and I think you're going to enjoy his responses. David sent me three awesome pictures for his Five on Friday and told me to pick what I wanted to use. Of course I can't pick...I can never pick. So you get to enjoy all three. Ladies and gentlemen...David Corbett!
For those who don't know, David is the bald one BEING kissed, Reed Coleman is KISSING
1. My favorite place to read is: Wherever the dog happens to be. Regardless of the place, if Hamley’s there, it’s the coziest spot in the house.
3. The last movie I saw was Searching for a Friend for the End of the World, which I enjoyed thoroughly. Something about the combination of true love and utter annihilation kinda struck a chord.
4. If I had to be stranded on a desert island with only one other person it would be: Mette, my girlfriend. I don’t really have to explain this, do I?
5. The #1 item on my bucket list right now is: To spend six months in Buenos Aires and learn the tango.
