Dark Star

The title seems like something George Lucas would write - a merging of the Dark Side and the Death Star. And Creston Mapes' main character is the lead singer in a rock band called Death Stroke.

While Dark Star does contain an epic struggle between good and evil, I'm unsure of other similarites between the novel and Star Wars, as I haven't read it yet. Yes, I hear the collective gasp. Honestly, I haven't purchased a book in quite a while - the $5 Brandilyn Collins one mentioned in my meme post was the latest, I believe. Yep, back in April. If I wasn't reviewing, I'd probably go crazy (of course, I may have gotten a lot more novel writing done and finished the unread books on my shelves). Poverty is the curse of the struggling writer. But I must admit, this book's premise has me wishing I could splurge. For more in-depth reviews and info on this book, visit the Blogging Alliance members' sites.

I haven't had much time for reading anyhow with the revisions I'm hoping to complete this month. I still have 5,000 words to add to Winter, and only 5 days to do it. Ha. I realized that's one-ninth of my target length, and I don't want that much of the book to be description. I did come up with another subplot, so I should be working on that today.

I wanted to drop a note of thanks for your post about Dark Star. That is so cool, and much appreciated. Have a great weekend. Your friend, Creston.

Okay, it's been a couple of months. Have you read the book yet? :-)

Do. It's excellent. One of my best reads for 2005. FULL TILT is also a must read. Watch out for it.
