Rosepoint Reviews – October Recap

Happy Halloween

October bouquetSo many people love October! Month of wildly changing seasons from warm to cool or cold and green to red or orange and gold. Once again, I’ve been reading and writing furiously, totaling nine books including many ARC’s, as well as #ThrowbackThursdays highlighting some of my old favorites. Also, last month I started posting to #Bookstagram as part of an #Instagram feature using autumn flowers, squash, and the wild grasses of fall to create some fun and colorful pictures.  

October is also the month we celebrate Halloween, and for us personally the birth of our daughter, a brother’s birthday and that of a great aunt. Unfortunately, it has also marked the death of a close family member. That’s the third this year–if you believe in that old wives tale–and spooky October would be the appropriate month to deal that blow.

Did you know the fear of three is called Triaphilia? There is a mysticism with the number three. Call it what you want: The Rule of Thirds. And the myth doesn’t stop at deaths, the triad seems to occur with catastrophes as well. Hurricane Harvey in Texas, Irma into The Keys and Florida, and Maria into Puerto Rico were both deadly and devastating, still wreaking destruction and havoc to residents. Perhaps the triad is explained by the human need for pattern seeking, while many look no further than the New Testament. Still, it reoccurs with supernatural regularity and I’m sure you could point out your “Third” stories as well. Perfect for Halloween.

Last month I noted three highlighted reviews by plugging them into my Wharf display. This month I noted three additional features–one of a Blog Tour for How I’m Spending My Afterlife by Spencer Fleury–and two new features:

  • #CoverLove – Featuring orange theme covers for October
  • #AmReading- Shark Eater and Outside the Wire

Also, I reviewed six books, all ARC’s with one exception (and one beta-read, which will become a review some time later):

My #ThrowbackThursdays included authors William F Brown for Winner Lose All, June Collins for Goodbye Junie Moon, Jonas Saul for The Warning, and Ann Charles for Dance of the Winnebagos.

Last recap, I noted several bookish events that included Indie Author Day in October, as well as several others occurring throughout the U.S.

Lake County Public Library - Merrillville INThis month I wanted to mention the 5th Annual Local Author Book Fair in which I’ll be taking part on Saturday, December 2nd at the Lake County Public Library in Merrillville, Indiana. I’ll be there from 1 – 4 pm with my grandfather’s books. I hope to be presenting the new edition of Sole Survivor, which will sport the new cover as well as tell the story of how the painting came into my possession, perhaps some 90+ years after it was painted. (It’s in beautiful shape, by the way.) Hey, if you can manage the weather and are in the area, please drop in and say hi! I’d love to see you there! ©2017 Virginia Williams I Love Likes and Comments--Please Share!

Happiness for a moment with you....

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
