Good Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? Do anything fun? Are you still shopping or have you finished your gift buying? Did you find time to curl up with a good book? If so, we want to hear about it!
My weekend was fun and full. As usual, I'm running late on my shopping. Wish I was one of those people who start their shopping December 26 for the next year. Are you one of those? If so, know that you have my admiration and not a little bit of envy. (:
Did everyone see my post last week? I was finally able to share news about the new series. At this point, I'm calling it the Wildefire series but that's subject to change. My heroines' last name is Wilde and they grew up on Wildefire Lane in a small town in Alabama, not far from Mobile. The town is fictional, but the southern will be fully authentic! Finally can use some of those y'alls that come so easy for me!
Not to be too melodramatic, but did you notice we're only 7 days away from the last of the Last Chance Rescue books? SWEET REWARD releases on Tuesday, December 27! Woohoo! I loved Jared and Mia and hope you will too!
I've lived with these LCR characters since 2006, when I first started writing RESCUE ME. I know their flaws and strengths, as well as their deepest fears and incredible courage. Saying goodbye is both a happy and sad time for me. I'll miss hanging out with these interesting, intriguing characters, but knowing they will continue to rescue victims as they live out their happily ever after is a great comfort. And Aidan, Angela, Kendra, Raphael and Sabrina Fox continue to whisper little snippets in my ear from time to time. At some point, I would love to return to them and let them tell me their story. We'll see!
I'm very excited about this new path and new series. I hope you'll fall in love with it too. I've already met Zach Tanner and Savannah Wilde, the hero and heroine of the first book, which I'm tentatively calling SECRETS OF A SOUTHERN NIGHT. Zach and Savannah have me intrigued already. Can't wait till they tell me more of their story!
In the midst of all the craziness of preparing for the holidays and a book release, I have been able to finish two books, too! I thoroughly enjoyed both of them. Jami Alden's Hide from Evil was deliciously riveting, causing more than a few breathless moments, especially near the end. And I read the second book in Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, Shelter Mountain, which caused more than a few tears. I'm beginning to understand the addiction that goes with this series. I've already started the third one!
This week, I'm shopping till I'm dropping, a few more doctor's appointments and then maybe a little shaking and baking. LOL Hopefully more baking than shaking.
Hope your week is filled with good things. I'll check back and chat a little later with you. Can't wait to hear what books you loved and devoured last week.
Happy Monday All!
