Recommend Monday! (A day early)
Good Monday All!
Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Saturday we had rain and I spent the day in the Birmingham Public Library with hundreds of avid readers and many awesome authors. What a lovely way to spend a rainy day. Sunday, though still a little chilly, is filled with sunshine.
You may wonder why I'm doing Recommend Monday on a Sunday. (I know there's a way to schedule blogs but I haven't had the chance to find out how yet) So here I am on Sunday saying hey for Monday. Ain't technology grand?
Last week was a very good week for Jake and Angela (well, other than the pain, tears, fear and general angst) but we're heading toward the happy ever after ending. Jake's already given me a hint of what's going to happen and it made me cry. Imagine that! :) However, we need some extra quiet time to wrap things up so for the next few days I'll be gone to a little hideaway, far away from that grand technology.
CHANCES ARE is now over 52,000 words and I still have a few scenes to write. When I return, I do plan to have a fully completed, albeit long, novella. What follows next? Revising, copy editing, and then yes, oh yes, oh yes, finally the release! Be sure to sign up for my newsletter because the minute this puppy is released, I'll send out a newsletter to let you know. It'll probably still be several weeks but it is coming!
I'm in the midst of reading Rita contest books so don't have any real recommendations for you. However, this morning, I thought of a question I'd like for you to answer. What are some of the most emotional books with a happy ending that you've ever read? You know the ones that you sobbed while reading but at the end, you were uplifted because of the HEA? And even days later, you can't stop thinking about the story or characters? Hmm, that may be a bit too specific but I'd love for you to give it a try.
Here are a few of the books that fit that criteria for me:
Cry No More by Linda Howard
Dark Waters by Sharon Sala
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers
How about you? And don't forget to tell us what great books you read last week.
Wishing everyone wonderful reads this week!
