Camp Nano

It’s here, well, almost. Tomorrow is the official start of the first month of Camp Nano, and yes, I’m participating. The kids are home, and we have lots to do this summer, but I’m going to try it anyway. I’m hoping it will be a good motivator to get at least the first half of the third Kitsune book drafted out.

In the mean time, I’ll work on my outline and plan how the book should go… Maybe that will help me some.


A Week in the Woods

Cool temperatures, shifted priorities, family time. I loved spending the week in the mountains where the day’s were 30+ degrees cooler, but when our time there was over I was glad to return to running water, air conditioning and the ability to communicate with others.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to unwind, to relax and forget the pressures of writing, editing, publishing, and marketing my work, but at the same time I’m glad to get back to it.


Time for a deep breath.

After pushing to get Fight ready to go to my copy-editors before our annual camping trip, I’m feeling the strain. I emailed out the book yesterday and took a deep, cleansing breath. Then immediately picked up the notebook I’ve already started for book 3. Yeah, I know I should take a break, give my brain something to do other than Nickie’s story but Nickie is just so upfront in my mind right now.

I’m not ready for a break. I picked out the notebook for book 3 about 3 weeks ago (I have a supply of composition books I use for this purpose, most of them have different covers,) about the time I started the last rewrite of Fight. I had to have some place to keep track of the thoughts and ideas for the next book.

Now that I’ve finished with (this stage of) Fight I can get more in depth more intimate with what will happen in the next book. There are some big changes in store for Nickie, she just hasn’t told me yet how she’s going to handle them.

What I’m Reading ~ Beauty ~ Laurell K. Hamilton

Beauty is a short excerpt from the Antia Blake series.

13549145

Anita walks in after a night of work, not work and finds Jean-Claude in the tub, waiting for her. Much sexiness ensues.

 

What did I think? I liked it, for what it was.

What was it? Well, it took me 20 minutes to read the entire thing. It was short, but Laurell said all along it was a sexy outtake from her next book Kiss the Dead.


What I’m Reading ~ Beneath the Skin ~ Lauren Dane

This is the third book in the de La Vega Cats series.

BeneathTheSkin300-220x330

Gibson is the Bringer of the de La Vega jamboree. He is the law and judge that holds them together.  But when he is attacked on the street and hit with three silver bullets he is forced to rely on the woman who saves his life, if only for a short while.

Mia has some issues, she’s recovering from an attack that may well effect her for the rest of her life. But when another Jaguar is shot in front of her she can’t help but do the right thing. She takes him home and digs out the silver. But she couldn’t know how this stranger would change her life.

 

What did I think? I enjoyed it. I had a hard time putting it down. The characters were dynamic and likable. I cheered when they got things right and wanted to cry when they were hurting.


What I’m Reading~ Colters’ Daughter ~ Maya Banks

Colters’ Daughter is the third book in the Colters’ Legacy series.

daughter_328

Callie is the only child of Adam, Ethan, Ryan and Holly of Colter’s Woman and Colters’ Wife.

She’s followed her restless soul all over the world but always ends up back home. When Max, a ghost from her past, shows up in her brother’s bar where she’s working, she gives him her best right hook, leaving him with no doubt how she feels.

But Max has something to say and he won’t take no for an answer. Can he convince her to at least listen to what he has to say?

 

What did I think? It was good. Realistic interpersonal relationships and great erotic scenes. I’ve read all the other Colter’s Legacy books and was eager to read this one. I liked Callie, and Max was a decent dominant. What I didn’t like was how easily she fell at his feet forgiving him. If I’ve spent months hurting and being angry at you, I’m not going to change my mind and forgive you in an hour or two. Simply not going to happen.
