At least I don’t live in Boston. We got some sleet, a dusting of snow, and frigid temps overnight. Makes me want to go back to bed under the covers but it’s not Boston! Of course, Saturday was 74, Sunday was 35, and today’s windchill is around zero. Did I mention, BRRRRR!
Valentine’s Day was pretty low key for use. Our “present” to each was to hire a guy to rake the leaves in our yard. We’d each down a couple dozen bags through the fall and winter but there was still a bunch. Like 168 bags full. Yes, you read that right.
And speaking of Valentine’s Day, Harlequin sponsored the Blind Date With A Book promo. I printed out the “invitations”, wrapped up six of my books just like in the pic and dropped them off at my local Starbucks, Panera Bread, and BJ’s Alehouse, where Lawyer Guy and I had dinner. It was fun. I forgot to tweet and facebook pictures of it but, ah well. Six people got to take a free book home to read. Hopefully, they enjoyed it.
I’m still on my In Death reading marathon. OBSESSION IN DEATH came out last Tuesday but I haven’t read it yet. I have six more books and two novellas to go to catch back up to “current” times in the series. I finished TREACHERY IN DEATH yesterday and started NEW YORK TO DALLAS. This time through the whole series, I’ve been trying to make notes on Goodreads as to the major events–both personal (between Dallas and Roarke) and professional for Dallas. There’s the button from NAKED IN DEATH. Summerset’s realization of Eve’s past in IMMORTAL IN DEATH. DIVIDED IN DEATH, when Roarke discovers the truth behind the truth of Eve’s childhood and he puts her needs above his own need for revenge. INNOCENT IN DEATH when Roarke truly hurts Eve for the first time, when his old flame comes to town and plays him. (This is the book where Eve and Summerset actually stand together so Yay!) CONSPIRACY IN DEATH when Dallas loses her badge–and her identity. So many good books! But the two hardest for me to read, and therefore two of my favorites, are TREACHERY IN DEATH involving bad cops and NEW YORK TO DALLAS where the full extent of Eve’s PTSD comes out. Wow. Just…wow.
On the writing side of things, I’m about to rap up MOONSTRUCK: SECRETS and get it off to my editor. I still have almost two weeks to get it out more or less on schedule.
That’s it for me. What about y’all? Do anything fun? Read anything awesome? FYI, As soon as I’m through the IN DEATH books, I am all over Ashlynn Pearce’s FUEL and B.E. Sanderson’s DYING EMBERS! Just sayin’… 😀
