5.15.16 – Sunday Smatterings

By JT Ellison

Hi, Chickens!

Whew, it’s Sunday! Are you getting much relaxing done? I’m writing away on the next Nicholas Drummond book, making up for lost time, because instead of writing…

I spent this week at Book Expo America (BEA) in Chicago, one of the biggest publishing events of the year. Industry folks come together and talk about the biggest books and trends in the market. I always like to see what other genres and houses are up to, it’s such a cool convergence of creative minds. I love it! I signed 300 copies of FIELD OF GRAVES, met a lot of incredible people, talked tons of business with my team, and generally made merry. *

Anyway. You came for links. So here you go.

Here’s what happened on the Internets this week:

18 confessions only book lovers will understand

These are 18 confessions only a book lover will understand.

Shakespeare Quiz

QUIZ! Can you spot the real Shakespeare words? (this is harder than it appears)

Should I help others be an artist? -Ask Polly

“Should I help others be an artist?” An astounding answer, one I think we all need to hear.

Stunning Images from a 747

This is stunning: “I fly 747s for a living. Here are the amazing things I see every day.”

And closer to home:

Thrills & Chills Sampler

Oh! Wanna read the first chapter of FIELD OF GRAVES? It’s in the Harlequin Thrills & Chills sampler, along with some work by other fab authors. (Mary Kubica, Tess Gerritsen, and Heather Gudenkauf, anyone?)

Belle Ambiance Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

If you’re looking for a cheap and delicious Cabernet Sauvignon, try this one (brought to you by The Wine Vixen).

On What Happens If We're Not Perfect (Perfection Series Part II)

I’m doing a Perfection series on the Tao and aired Part II, on the lies we tell ourselves about perfection, this week. (Did you miss Part I? Find it here.)

* While I was at BEA, yours truly got to see a bunch of her Harlequin/HarperCollins team and some of her author friends! As you can see in this video, I wasn’t having fun at all.

Alright, favorites, that’s all I’ve got this week. Be well, enjoy some sunshine, and we’ll talk again soon!
