This summer, I’ve been writing a lot, working on book three of the Caught Between series. When I’m not typing away on my MacBook Air or scribbling on my sticky notes, I’ve been outside playing in the flowerbeds, riding my bike around town, and basically enjoying the summer heat. But it’s cooling off here now, which means more indoor time and more reading time, and I have some great reading material lined up for September.
Want to take a behind-the-scenes peek at my writerly life? I’m over at Cheryl Cooke Harrington’s Stillpoint blog today with pictures of my office and a look at what I’m working on now. Come say hello so I’m not lonely!
My Goodreads Challenge this year was to read 52 books. I’m a little behind due to the release of my latest book, Caught Between a Lie and True Love. Plus, we had an early spring here, so I’ve been outside without the heavy shackles of winter boots, jacket, mitts, and toque. Totally lovely!
I’ve planted all of my annual flowers, and the early perennials are already blooming. And these days, as I type away, I’m able to open the office window and let the fresh air and sounds of the outdoors in. Right now, bees are buzzing around the screen window and the birds are chirping from their lofty position in the nearby spruce trees.
A good deal of my time has been spent at the youngest’s farm which he purchased last spring and took possession in mid-August. Due to some issues with the old farmhouse, we’ve spent the last nine months tearing out the inside guts of the house: insulation, electrical, flooring, and the last thing to go is the plumbing. But that’s all a story for another day. 🙂
We’re here to talk reading, so here are my June reads.
What are you reading now, and do you already know what you intend to read in the weeks ahead?
I’m a little bit behind in my April reads but I have a really good reason. Honestly. Truly. In fact, I have—almost—the best reason in the world.
(And no, I didn’t have another baby. Or solve world hunger…sorry.)
Book one of the Caught Between series is almost here. In fact, it’s due to hit the online bookshelves next week!
Caught Between a Lie and True Love: This book includes a family phobic heroine, a hunky hero whose luck—and love life—are about to change, lies, romance, chocolate chip cookies, nighttime shenanigans, a con-artist who swears he’s gone straight, teens with their own agenda, and a battle of the sexes secondary romance.
For April’s Goodreads Challenge, I’ve selected a book by one of my favorite authors (Cheryl Cooke-Harrington…love, love, love her fast paced writing style!) and Elizabeth Gilbert’s latest release. I’m also delving into a time travel romance (by Jennette Marie Powell) and a recommendation from last month, a fantasy novel by Tameri Etherton, which happens to be free on Amazon right now.
In March, I also squeezed in a Young Adult novel, the first in a series by H.M. Ward, so I’m including that here.
So now, let’s talk about what you’re reading now. And what books or authors do you recommend I try out next?
Next time up, I’ll share the new cover for my upcoming April release Caught Between a Lie and True Love.
