Riding Hood After
7 Fairy Tale Pastiches – part 3

Third in a series of 7 Pastiches of Little Red Riding Hood in the style of my favourite authors. Today I give you another retelling of the Red Riding Hood story, culled from the original text LITTLE RED CAP by the Brothers Grimm and in the style of the late, sorely missed, Douglas Adams. Afterwards I shall give you the matching commentary as to how it was done, and so on for all 7 stories. I hope you enjoy it. So now, let’s get to it…

3. Zen and the Art of Whup-ass (after Douglas Adams)

VOICE OF A BOOK:(over twinkly starlike music) In the Nut Tree Nebula there is a planet known as Three Oaks, a surprisingly named place because a) there more than three oaks there, and b) in fact every piece of land on the entire planet…

A fellow writer of mine told me how she uses Pinterst to catalog the books she reads. Yes there are other websites out there that do the same. Goodreads comes to mind. But none have the ease and popularity of Pinterest. I already have a list of books I recommend on this blog, but not with pictures. It’s a hassle to put them in. Pinterest solves this.

I plan to pin each “good” book I read. Then I get an easy to find list of my favorite books. What could be better. Click over to see the list. There are plenty of great reads.

With a lovely, impressive, and revised query letter in hand, I officially submitted Rooted in the Sky to two indie publishers this week. Claire’s book is traveling through the US postal service as we speak to Algonquin Books–most famous for publishing Water for Elephants and Big Fish–and Ashland Creek Press, a small independent publisher that has some big love for literary fiction with environment, ecology, and wildlife themes (three themes which Claire’s book definitely contains).

Algonquin tells writers to expect a response within 8-10 weeks.

Ashland Creek Press promises to respond within 4-12 weeks.

In the meantime, I’m going to keep submitting the book to other indie publishers, but these were the two I was most excited about and needed to submit to ASAP. I think they’re the best fit for the book and, honestly, with Algonquin’s recent history of book-to-movie deals, what writer doesn’t occasionally dream…

Đêm qua lại tiếp tục là Pr ở Roma, Italia.

[Ngày hôm qua tình cờ gặp 1 bài viết ném đá fg rất ngứa mắt, tính viết 1 bài phản bác, nhưng ngay sau khi thấy bức ảnh này của anh Tom, phải nói là….. y như 1 gáo nước tạt cái ào vào ng`, hạ nhiệt ngay tực thì, thậm chí đông cứng tại chỗ đứng hình mà ngắm anh luôn. Nụ cười có thể thắp sáng thế giới của mình. Chả trách các fan Nga bảo anh là “cám ơn đã mang chút nắng đến Moscow. Nụ cười của anh, dịu dàng, tỏa sáng và ấm áp như nắng vậy mà. ]
