Reading, Writing, NO ARITHMETIC

From my front flowerbed.

From my front flowerbed.

I love summer.

So far I’ve finished the Codex Alera series (OMG, sooooooo freaking amazing) and Dead Ever After (the last Sookie story–loved it!), read the first Santini novella (hot and fun, interesting concept and set in San Antonio), started Unmasked by Anya Karin (finally, I’ve had it on my kindle for months!) and Clockwork Angel (I know, I’m late to the party).

I’ve also done some deep copy editing on a friend’s novel and another friend’s memoir.  I  love deep copy editing others’ work. I wish I could work on my own work the same way!

AND I’ve fallen in love with the TV show Longmire. Holy cow, I love it so much! It’s like a BJ Daniels book all played out on the small screen.

What I haven’t done much of is write. DH asked me about that yesterday. I mean, we built this new house for my office (jk–sort of).

I told him I wasn’t going to feel bad for taking a week off after the school year. I love my job (see the bajillion posts written about that since 2005), but it takes a lot out of a person. I needed to regroup, get back into my creative place.

I’m there now. 🙂

Have I mentioned I love summer? Because I really, really do.

If you like contemporary romance, check out my latest Liz Lee Kindle title, Close to Home. It’s free for Amazon Prime members with Kindles.

War reporter Donovan “Tex” Nelson returns home looking for a way to escape the horrors of all he’s witnessed. He’s ready to find solace in the arms of a woman who understands the sanctity of the one night stand.

The last thing he expects is Kacie Jo Jenkins all grown up and ready to fulfill that request.

She’s his best friend’s little sister.
He’s her fantasy quest.

When the fantasy becomes real leaving Kacie Jo pregnant, everything changes. 

Everything except the nightmares that haunt Donovan.
