This is what I’ve been up to this week…

1. 1. WHAT I’M READING…

I just finished 2 books…

I loved both of these books. They were unique and I appreciated that they didn’t read like other books I’ve read recently. The writing was great and the characters were refreshing. I read the prequel first and then the second book. The series was hot, steamy, sexy, and filled with true love. My kind of books.

2. WHAT I’M WRITING…

I’ve started a new novel. I’m only at 10,000 words, so I still have a long way to go.I haven’t worked on it much the last couple of weeks because the end of the school year is a busy time, but here’s a quick teaser I posted the other day when I was tagged on Facebook.

He held the car door open for me and I rolled my eyes. I had to make sure Walt understood where we stood, which was nowhere. “I can open my own car door.”
“I know.”
I sighed deeply. “Just because you open car doors for me doesn’t mean anything.”
“I know.”
His arrogant, superior, know-it-all attitude got under my skin. “You’re an insufferable human being.”
“I know.”
I slid into the passenger seat. Walt’s eyes never left me. I wanted to slap him and kiss him all at the same time.
“Tell me how you really feel. Just make sure you tell me in Spanish, because you know how I love that.”
I opened my mouth and sure enough I closed it right before a litany of vulgar Spanish words slipped out.
Walt closed the door and I heard his laughter as he made his way around to the driver’s side. “Luciana, don’t be embarrassed. You know I love it when you talk in your native tongue to me.”
I huffed and sat against the leather seat. I closed my eyes and took several deep breaths. He couldn’t know where my imagination went when I heard him say the word tongue. I shouldn’t even be having these thoughts about Walt. It was absurd.

3. WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW…

Authors, Readers, and bloggers. I couldn’t exist without you! Please leave me a comment–I’d love to hear from you!

Also stop on by and like my Facebook page. I’m going to have a giveaway as soon as I reach 500 likes and I’m getting close.

4. WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

School is out and today is the first official day of summer vacation. Making a list of all the fun things I want to do with my kids before it’s over, because summer goes by way too fast. And I am not ready to have one in high school next year!

1. 1. WHAT I’M READING…

Recently I bought

51ILczSxJdL._AA160_

It is a collection of 8 full length published novels and it’s only $.99. I’d already read 2 of the books included, which I enjoyed, so for that price I decided to give the remaining 6 books a try. I mean, how could I not? I could read them in any order, but I am reading the first one first–FADING by E K Blair. I believe the proceeds goes to a charity, but I can’t remember which one.

2. WHAT I’M WRITING…

I’ve started a new novel. I’m only at 7,000 words, so I still have a long way to go. If you click on the links below you can get an idea of what my MCs look like.
Male MC
Female MC

As far as which direction I’m taking this novel, I’m still undecided. Sometimes I don’t know until the words are on the page. It’s going to be a little bit darker, but there will be love.

4. WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

My family and I celebrated Memorial Day this past weekend. I want to thank all the veterans for their service. This country wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you. I’d like to pay special tribute to my Uncle Raymond, who was a POW during the Korean War.

4. WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO…

Things are starting to wrap up here. I’ve been to two Spring concerts in the past week and I’ll be going to another one tonight. Also sports are winding down. Yesterday I went to my daughter’s last field hockey game. Next, I’ll be going to the final softball and track meets. Go kids! It’s a busy house with three kids and an exchange student from Spain. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

You can find it at amazon

I’m only a few chapters in, but I can’t wait to find out what happens to Trace and Olivia. And who doesn’t like a hot mechanic? I know I do. Trace has agreed to help shy Olivia with her ‘Live List.’ I can’t wait until they get to the item on the list where they ‘dance in the rain.’
