Happy New Year!! I can’t really believe the Holidays are over. I still have my tree up, but that’s only because I’m too lazy to tear it apart (also, I store it outside, and it’s been reaaallly cold out there lately).
Work in Progress News ~Sooo I didn’t start the year out being as productive as I wanted. I don’t even have an excuse. I got kinda stuck on Rising Heat, so I hopped over to another wip I call “Ian”. This one will be Alanna’s book, and I can’t really even divulge much about the plot at this point. Let’s just say it’s something unlike anything I’ve done so far. I’m excited.
Favorite Song of the Week ~ As a child of the 80s, it’s hard to swallow the fact that my favorite songs are now “oldies” and are being covered by young whippersnappers who think they can do it better than the originals. Although I can’t in good faith say that this Only You cover is better than Yaz’s (Yazoo if you’re a Brit) but um…I really like it.
Â Industry News ~ Okay, I’ve always thought that a print version of anything (books/magazines/newspapers/music CDs even) should come with a free digital version. Google Play is now making that happen for some magazine subscriptions. Just log in to verify your subscription and get your digital magazine free! I love it. [source]
What I’m reading ~ I actually read this two weeks ago, but the book I’m reading now might end up being a DNF for me. Just not feeling it. This is I Don’t by Kari Gregg. It’s about a guy who works so hard on a marriage equality bill, and once it passes is hurt when his boyfriend isn’t ready to rush out and get married. The couple heads to one hero’s family home for the holidays, where we meet a great cast of characters that really round this book out.
Search Term of the week aka How People Found My Websites ~ Not sure what this means, but “woman free in horse” found Olivia’s website.
Book Snippet ~ Here’s one from Rising Heat, Earth Scents book two:
Before he could think about it, he took the necessary steps toward Dean, grabbed his forearm and spun him around. “Is that what you think? That I’m afraid?”
Dean’s lazy gaze moved from Lance’s eyes past his chest, to rest where his hand was wrapped around Dean’s arm.
Damn, the man’s flesh felt better than it should. Â This is exactly why Lance denied himself. As much as he wanted to leave the room, he also wanted to pull Dean even closer, until he felt that heat from head to toe.
Dean met Lance’s gaze. “I get the feeling very few things scare you, Lance.”
I’ve actually got this scene highlighted, which means it might get cut here pretty soon. We’ll see. Have a great week, everyone!
