WWW Wednesday at coffee and ink #4

Since yesterday was Net Neutrality Day, I moved my posts this week forward by one day.

Sam at Taking on a World of Words is the host of WWW Wednesday.  To participate, all you have to do is answer the three W questions and post in the comments section at Sam’s blog:

What are you currently reading?

This is a re-read and a comfort read–I love Lord John, and he’s one of the reasons I started writing gay romance.  I’m also a member of the FB group Lord John Grey Society. He’s a side character who became very important to the Outlander series and got his own series of historical mysteries. DG started with a short story for him for an anthology and now the producers are talking about a spinoff series from television Outlander. Yay!

The next in the Regency Mystery series by Tracy Grant…

What did you recently finish reading?

Comfort re-read. In the FB group, members frequently post excerpts about Lord John, and it whet my appetite to go back to them…

What do you think you’ll read next?

I’m still working on this:

From Net Galley, a nonfiction book about the Amazon.  I read a bunch of books related to some research for a novel about the history of South America and the Amazon–gruesome and gorgeous reading, so when I saw this, I picked it up to continue my queries, as the novel hit a snag and sits in a drawer at this moment. My research made me curious for more.

I’m really hoping it’s more like Wade Davis and less like Lynn V. Andrews…

I’m really looking forward to this one–from the publisher Cheyne Walk, which published “The Way Back to Florence.” Review to come on this.

From Amazon: Set in the 1960s, the story of Jody, her little daughter Anna, and Zé, veers between an unhappy marriage in the North of England and a journey to find love amid the vivid landscapes of Portugal, while exposing the darkest shadows of Europe’s longest-running dictatorship. A Sea of Straw is a haunting debut that will linger in the memory.
