#BookTitle, #StrangerThings3, and #TopGunMaverick

Last week was a good week.  I finished my edits and sent Book 3 to an author who generously offered to blurb it (and also recruited a friend to give one!).  Thanks to a good friend, I took care of a plot hole discovered by my editor, so that was also a huge relief – after a big moment of panic.

Speaking of Book 3, I mentioned last week I’d decided on a title.  A friend and I brainstormed ideas while driving to Memphis, then my editor mentioned some ideas which also incorporated what my friend and I had come up with, so it seemed like fate.  Without further ado, I present to you the long-awaited title of Book 3:

Subject A36 (Book One of The Colony series)

This week I’ll be working on the acknowledgements and description, which is sometimes harder to write than the book – for me, anyway.  Wish me luck.

I finished the third season of Stranger Things, and it was mind-blowing, humorous, and bittersweet.  Each season is better than the previous one, IMO.  Those young actors do an outstanding job.

Did anyone catch the new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick?  If you didn’t, here you go – enjoy!

  1. That’s a catchy science fiction-y title. I like it. You’re one of a few I’ve heard complementing this last episode of stranger things. Did you know there’s talk about adding a pg13 on films where people are smoking.

    1. Thanks, Jina! My son mentioned people talking about the smoking, but I didn’t know anything about hte PG13 rating. That’s just the way things were in the 80s – a lot of people smoked, and restaurants were usually smoke-filled. Soooo glad things have changed!

      1. Wow, I hadn’t heard about the PG13 thing. That’s really getting crazy. I don’t smoke, but it’s a true depiction of life in the 80s (back then I did smoke). Given they put a warning on about the strobing effect of the lighting, why don’t they just add one that says something along the lines of life being depicted accurately for the times (i.e, people smoke)!

  2. Congrats on your accomplishments, Teri!

    I thought ST season three was awesome too. They do seem to be getting better! The new Top Gun trailer is awesome. I named youngest my son Maverick after the original, so you can imagine how excited I am lol. 😉

  3. I like the title, Teri. And, wow–you’re writing a series this time. That’s great!

    I’m only on episode 3 or 4 of Strange Things so far. I’m enjoying it but my husband doesn’t care for it this time around. He thinks it’s dragging. I might end up watching the rest of the season solo!

    1. Thanks – this is the first in a duology.

      You should, Mae! Hubby and I have completely different tastes, and he’s never watched it. He’s probably never watched about 90% of the shows and movies I have.

      1. I will definitely finish Stranger Things. I love that show. It’s just a matter of if he’s going to watch it with me. He said he’d give it about two more episodes and then if he doesn’t change his mind he’ll bail. Men!

  4. Well, I kind of hate Tom Cruise, but I’m excited for you getting ready to publish. I know titling the story was a lodestone around your neck. Congratulations on moving forward!

    Now, let’s see that cover. 🙂
