A Little of This… A Little of That…

A couple of months ago, I was watching American Idol–one of the rare times I actually tuned in this season–and I heard this song. And, like eleventy-jillion other people, I was blown away. (Even months later, not to mention listening to it approximately 1,127 times while writing, I still get chills every. time.) I promptly took my gushing to Twitter and it went something like this:

Me: OMG that was so amazing.
Friend: ikr?
Me: I feel like I should write a book about that…
Friend: You should!
Me: Hmm… *tries to brainstorm* I don’t know, I’ll have to think about it.
Friend: *gasp* make it new adult!
Me: *brain implodes*

And thus began a whirlwind relationship with my current WIP. Which I won’t say much about, because like several other girls have mentioned, I don’t want to jinx myself. But, like all WIPs, I have a handy dandy inspiration board over on Pinterest that may give you a little insight to what this one is about. Warning: very little over there is safe for work. But it sure is pretty to look at.

Besides burning the midnight oil to get that done, I also just turned in the final edits on my next book coming out, Season of Second Chances, which will be included in one of the Carina contemporary romance holiday anthologies. I love, love, love this novella about a single dad, a jaded romantic, and a serendipitous second chance. And if staring at hot guys is your thing, I also have a board for this one, lovingly dubbed HSD for Hot Single Dad.

And nophoto(25)w that I’m not writing or editing anything at the moment, I’m on a book binge, reading everything I can get my hands on. And I, uh, have some catching up to do… Let’s not even talk about what books are on my e-reader.

I’m currently spending a little quality time with Jax from Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis. Yeah, again. Believe me, once is not enough with that one. And because I’m a glutton for punishment and always need to add more to my list, what are you reading right now that you love?

  1. Oh, Jax. I envy you the time spent with him, but Ford (The Sweetest Thing) is my Lucky Harbor book boyfriend. I married a hot single dad. I can’t wait to read your HSD story. :)

  2. I hadn’t heard that song before (I’m not an Idol watcher) but WOW, she can sing! And oh, lookie. New Pinterest boards to follow. *clicks button* 😉

    On vacation and in-between my own writing stuff, I glommed all of Roni Loren’s The Ranch books. BDSM and smokin’ hot.

  3. Angie Miller was one of my favorites on Idol this year, but I never started watching until late in the season so I didn’t see this performance. But I can totally see how it inspired you. BTW, I love your inspiration board and your hot dads. My favorite David Beckham with his little girl. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think your WIP has a hero with a lot of tats. Just a guess.

    Lately I’ve been listening to audio books, especially when I’m driving or at the gym. Currently listening to “All the right moves” by Lisa Jones.

    Best of luck with the WIP.
