Good Monday All!
Hope you had a fabulous week and weekend. Can't wait to hear about the books and/or movies you're recommending today.
Last week was catch up week for me. Focusing on all those things I let slide during my deadline kept me busy. I also had to write a brief synopsis--one of my least favorite things to do. Taking what will someday be a 400 page book and whittling it down into a one page outline is sheer torture for me. And it didn't work this time. I couldn't get it smaller than 2 pages. LOL Each word seemed so valuable and precious. However, I will say that the story synopsis of MIDNIGHT LIES, the second book in the Midnight series, turned out even better than I anticipated. I almost cried twice while I was writing it. Not because I hate writing synopses but because of the story. I wanted to stop a couple of times and just hug my characters. Can't wait to get started!
This week I'm focusing on a Last Chance Rescue novella, CHANCES ARE. If you get a chance, go over to my Facebook Last Chance Rescue page at https://www.facebook.com/LastChanceRescuebooksbychristyreece where I'm sharing random lines from the book every few days. I worked on the story a little last week; it was so good to chat with Noah again!
Also this week I'll continue planning for the new Ella Grace website. I'd love to get your input on what you'd like to see. Other than a brief bio, a reader letter and the books with excerpts, what else do you like to see on a website? Are there any particular websites you think are done really well? If so, let me know so I can check them out.
Still haven't seen any new movies. Seems like life gets in the way of having fun sometimes. My sweetheart and I need to make that a priority at least once a month. Guess Mr. Reece and I need to have a chat. (:
I am back to reading again--mostly at night before I go to sleep. I'm in the middle of several books and hope to be able to recommend them once I finish. I did read and love Pamela Clare's novella Skin Deep. I adore the I-Team series and Pamela is such a wonderful writer!
Okay, that's it for me. I'm going to take a walk with one of my fur-kids and hopefully have a nice long talk with Noah McCall. He's got a dilemma with one of his employees and I can't wait to see how he plans to solve the problem.
Hope you all have a fabulous week. Stay in the shade and read something delicious!
