Life gets busy…

Life gets busy… So I just assumed that once summer got here, I’d finally have some free time to relax and read. Boy, was I ever wrong! I am busier now that when I was working and kids were in school.  But it’s all good. I get some time to read and write reviews here and there. I had the pleasure (and frustration) of redesigning my blog all by myself!  I do worry that my poor bloggy will start to fall apart since I’m not writing daily posts, but I know it will bounce back in time.

Author Interview – Keta Diablo

Author Interview – Keta Diablo Today I have the honor of bringing to you author Keta Diablo. Keta lives in the Midwest portion of the country on six acres of beautiful woodland.

There’s a lovely environmental lake on her property named after a famous Native American chief, and the locals insist burial grounds from 150 years ago exist in her woods. Hmm. Maybe it’s not always the wind she hears howling at night. When Keta isn’t writing she loves to read and garden and spends far too much time at the local animal shelter trying to wrangle a way to adopt them...

Eyes snapping open, he started toward the direction he believed the sound had come from. Moonlight glistened, reflecting off the silvery waters of the bay. Something flapped again, louder and more insistent. He thought he heard a woman’s voice, cursing. Curious as to the cause of the disturbance, he hurried in the direction of the sounds. The western edge of the island faced the mainland, which became less and less clear as...

Sunday Snippets #18

Sunday Snippets #18 From Tempting the Fire by Sydney Croft Book release: Tuesday July 27, 2010, so in addition this Snippet is also a “You can join me, in the name of water conservation,” he called back, imagined her slick, soapy body rubbing his. He’d bet anything she was wild in bed; she was the type–all buttoned-up and serious on the outside, but once she got turned on… she’d probably rake her nails down his back when she came. Oh. F*cking. Yeah. He stroked himself harder, the build-up nearly too much, and he forced himself not to bite down on his own arm. She’d probably bite. And scratch. She’d lock those long...

Running on Empty?

Running on Empty? I feel like I’m in a book reading slump. Do you ever feel that way? It seems like it’s taking me longer to read each book I select. I used to read a book in 2-3 days, it’s now taking 5-10 days!  Also, I find that I’m not enjoying reading like I once was. Usually, I found it almost impossible to put down a book, especially in the last 100 pages, but lately, I’ll read a few pages and walk away. I think part of it is due to my blog. I LOVE my blog and enjoy reviewing books, but now I have the added pressure to come up...
