Hello again from Las Vegas!
I took a trip out to a great little used bookstore here, Amber Unicorn Books.
If you’re ever in Las Vegas and have time to get off the strip, I highly recommend checking it out!! Tell them Sandra sent you. Just kidding! I’ve only been there twice, they’d just look at you and smile politely and point you to the book stacks. Hee hee.
I spent almost an hour in there, lost in the sci fi and fantasy section. Since I knew I’d have to fly home with anything I bought, I was very tough, only picking three books. First, a book full of 366 writing exercises/prompts, called The Write-Brain. Since my goal was to do some writing while I was here (ahem, uh, about that..) I thought it would be a good purchase. It looks fun, now all I have to do is use it!
I also bought a copy of A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K Le Guin because, and I cringe to admit this, I have never read the Earthsea books! *collective gasp* I know, I know, but I’m correcting that indiscretion now!
I also bought an anthology-I LOVE anthologies, I recommend picking up anthologies whenever you can..and not just because my short story Mama’s Boy is coming out in the Vampire anthology Evolve, oh no no, I just love the opporunity to ‘sample’ different authors! This anthology is called Unicorns, it was first published in 1982 and has stories by Larry Niven, Stephen R Donaldson, Ursula K. Le Guin, T.H. White, Roger Zelazny and more! Great find, right?!! I can’t wait..in fact, I think I’ll head to the pool to read right now! (please don’t hate me because I’m on vacation…)
Happy reading to you, wherever you are!
