No one was adventurous enough to venture a guess on Monday’s opening.  It is the first two paragraphs on Carol Berg’s latest release, Flesh and Spirit.  It’s a fantastic read, as are her other eight novels.  If you need a place to start and would rather have a complete series before you, I recommend Son of Avonar as a lovely introduction to her writing.  Flesh and Spirit is the first of a duet; the second, Breath and Bone, is scheduled for release in January 2008.

I’ve been trying to find a method of moderating the comments on Name That Novel days so that people won’t be able to see the other guesses before all is revealed.  However, it seems the only way to do that is to moderate all comments for all my blog entries, and I’m not much interested in that.

At any rate, it’s been a crazy, hectic, frustrating week – I’ve been so busy just trying to catch up with life that I haven’t had much time for profound thoughts.  I will be dedicating more space here to endeavors other than Name That Novel, as soon as I have time to think.
