In the middle of all of this, really, there’s just me and Sylvie, a guy and a girl. And we want to live, in our way, by our own rules, in whatever time we’ve got. We will pack in some living before we go, trust me.

So, here’s a cool thing.  In Latin America The Fondo del Cultura Economica launched a campaign for the Spanish version of Somebody Up There Hates You asking readers to submit, in 140 characters, the things they’d do if they only had 10 days to live.

It’s such a good idea, that as we lead up to the book’s paperback publication (September 2nd) we’re going to keep it going here in the States.  We’d love to hear from you.  What would you do if you only had 10 days to live? Use the tag #SUTHY (Somebody Up There Hates You) and let us know!

Free read: Kelly Barnhill! The Mark of the Bandit, Part One.

The amazing Kelly Barnhill has written a prequel to THE WITCH’S BOY that’s appearing in three parts across three different blogs for the next three weeks. Part 1 of “The Mark of the Bandit,” is up today on Bookshelves of Doom. Unsurprisingly, the story is great, so go check it out!

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

  2. Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA: Robert Ziegenfuss
  3. Spring In Hallerbos Forest, Belgium: Kilian Schönberger
  4. Autumn Path In Kyoto, Japan: Takahiro Bessho
  5. Autumn Path: Lars Van Der Goor
  6. Bamboo Path In Kyoto, Japan: Yuya Horikawa
  7. Hitachi Seaside Park Path In Japan: nipomen2
  8. Dark Hedges In Ireland: Stephen Emerson
  9. Winter Forest Path, Czech Republic: Jan Machata
  10. Path Under Blooming Trees In Spring: Emanuel Costinas
