Now that I’ve made a few posts, I think it’s time to take a look at what has appeared so far. As previously stated, I am a complete novice at blogging–so this effort may seem more than a little clunky.
I started the blog as an adjunct to reviewing books for NetGalley, an activity that was put in motion by a message from the Margery Allingham estate offering free previews of a newly released box of the first three Albert Campion stories. I did review these and those reviews have been published on NetGalley and also on the Amazon site. But I realize I didn’t put them on my blog, so my next posting will be to include those reviews here
In addition to reviews, though, I decided to share some family stories about my parents and grandparents, in particular their experiences in the Ozarks of Missouri in the early 20th century. There is a two-part entry titled “Margaret’s Story” about one aspect of my mother, Margaret Hunter’s life. I am thinking now that my next family effort will be series titled “Mattie and Cecil”, relating the ten-year story of my grandparents from about 1939 to 1948.
So I guess this is a multi-use blog, part reviews and part family history. I may get the courage to address my efforts to become an author–but that’s a story for another day.
