I read The Opal Deception and The Lost Colony last week. I think Eoin Colfer just gets better and better. The Artemis Fowl series is like Tom Clancy meets Madeleine L’Engle. I have heard a rumor that The Time Paradox has been loaded onto Santa’s sleigh. In the mean time, I may have to run out and get The Supernaturalist or The Wish List or Half Moon Investigations (or perhaps I will content myself with The Tales of Beedle the Bard, J.K. Rowling’s latest offering). Since I have a WIP with multiple POVs, Artemis Fowl is perfect. Nearly every character, main or minor, has the POV for at least some part of the story, especially in The Lost Colony. I may have to read it again and take notes. But probably not until I finish revisions on another project. I did take advantage of Firebrand’s Query Holiday and submit the first chapter of said project today. And then who knows? Maybe I’ll even finish the magazine articles and the PB that have been hanging around, half done, for the last six months (at least). And the first draft of another YA novel. New Year’s Resolution #1: Get back to submitting at least one thing per week.
