Wednesday’s Words

What I’ve been up to this week and other news, in general.

Works In Progress:

  • I’m writing the next CLOSE TO THE HEAT story and honestly, this one is kicking my butt. Part of it is because I’m going through a lot of life changes, but also because I’ve chosen a storyline that’s just fucking difficult. It’s a challenge that I insist on beating, but it also means slow going. But I love me a foodie romance, so I persevere. 
  • Loose Id offered authors a chance to write a short epilogue for one of their stories. I’m seriously considering doing this, but the deadline is so tight, I’m not sure that I’ll manage. We’ll see.

Books I’m Reading:

I’ve been having a hell of a time finding a single story that holds my attention for more than a few minutes at a time, so right now I’m bouncing between: 

Beyond Shame by Kit Rocha. It’s about a woman’s sexual discovery and understanding that she can let go of shame because she likes to indulge in kink, etc. Right now, I’m reading a sizzling m/f/f/m scene.
The Scent of Shadows by Vicki Petterson. I’m only on the second chapter, but it’s got this great urban fantasy, but leaning toward paranormal feel that I love. First person POV haters, this one isn’t for you. Each book in the entire series is currently only $0.99.  
Skin by Kylie Scott is the only book I’ve pre-ordered in years. It’s the sequel to Flesh and although I didn’t find it as compelling as the first book, it’s still an excellent read. Never in a million years would I have said that zombie romances could work…until I started this series. Skin did some fine-line walking with dubious consent, but in the end it worked. Trust me on this one.  

That’s it for now. I’ll get better at writing these posts.
