Hellenic Immortal by Gene Doucette

I was pleasantly surprised by Hellenic Immortal (and Immortal, as well), both written by Gene Doucette. The books revolve around Adam - his present moniker - THE oldest living human being. Born sometime during the Paleolithic Age, Adam is literally ancient, although he stopped physically aging when he was 35 years old.

"I don’t know how old I am. My earliest memory is something along the lines of fire good, ice bad, so I think I predate written history, but I don’t know by how much. I like to brag that I’ve been there from the beginning, and while this may very well be true, I generally just say it to pick up girls."
–Adam the Immortal

I don't want to post any spoilers here, but I will say both books are sardonic, irreverent, funny as hell and emminently readable! Gene's writing style is refreshing and reminds me a bit of Jim Butcher.

How David Met Sarah blog book tour!

Today is the first stop in the How David Met Sarah blog book tour! I’m so excited to get this started, because Anne Kelleher has written the sweetest book. Not only that, but the book was just endorsed by the National Down Syndrome Society and October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month. AND 20% of All Proceeds will be donated to the National Down Syndrome Society, a non-profit organization benefiting the lives of developmentally-delayed adults.

Please stop by the tour at Blog Stop Book Tours!

A few things of note (in which I talk about a blog tour, a book festival, a new book, and a mouse)

So it's been a very busy, and exciting few weeks here.

First off - I was asked to tour THE sweetest book EVER! How David Met Sarah by Anne Kelleher.

In Anne's own words -
"This story is completely different from any of my previous eleven novels, because I wrote How David Met Sarah for my youngest brother, David. David has Downs' Syndrome and like the main character in the story, lives at home with my parents. He works in a mail room and has a lot of friends. He's even been in love.

I wrote How David Met Sarah at my mother's suggestion when she explained that as much as David is interested in reading, it's hard to find stories he likes. He reads at approximately a third grade level but as an adult, David doesn't relate to third grade level stories. How David Met Sarah is a story for grownups that someone with my brother's reading skills can read and enjoy."

If you'd like to check out the blog tour, visit Blog Stop Book Tours for the schedule. It starts next week!

Secondly -
On Saturday October 15th, I attended the Twin Cities Book Festival put on by Rain Taxi . It was a fun event and I had the opportunity to talk with a couple of authors.

S.C. Cobb, author AND illustrator of Peripheral Conflict was kind and charming.

And Lance Zarimba signed a copy of Oh No, Our Best Friend Is A Zombie for my 9 year old son, Cameron. Lance's books are written primarily for boys, ages 9 - 12.

Thirdly -
My e-publishing company, Out of Bounds Press, has released its 3rd book, The Way It Is by Alice Shepler.

"Amy and Paul take a huge leap of faith to follow their dream of owning a lodge in Colorado. Though they miss their grown daughters back home in Kansas, Amy and Paul know they've made the right choice. With a lot of hard work and ingenuity, they turn the lodge into a destination vacation spot, but it comes at the expense of Paul's health. When faced with the choice to remain in Colorado, or return to Kansas, a new opportunity presents itself. Read on to see how faith and family can make dreams come true."

And, oh yeah, we have a new kitten. Her name is Mouse.
