Author's selfie Feeling a bit better this morning after a good night and a brisk morning walk. Only one zombie chase this morning! In Zombies, Run! I have chases set to easy at this point. Still working my way up to running more. Speaking of games and gamification, with the new semester I’m starting INFO287-11 Seminar in Information Science: Gamifying Information today. I was very happy this morning to see the well-organized course materials. That’s not always the case.


Cover art for Sinful FolkToday I saw that Library Journal had posted The Most Read SELF-e Books of 2016. It included one published through Timberland Regional Library’s portal, Sinful Folk: A Novel of the Middle Ages by Ned Hayes.

Sinful Folk is the story of the terrible mid-winter 1377 journey as seen by Mear, a former nun who has lived for a decade disguised as a mute man, raising her son quietly in this isolated village. For years, she has concealed herself and all her history. But on this journey, she will find the strength to claim the promise of her past and create a new legacy. Mear begins her journey in terror and heartache, and ends in triumph and redemption.
