Lots has been written on the benefits of vacation and how to take one, where to go, what to do, etc. etc. ad nauseum infinitum.

So how come nobody talks about coming back from a vacation and how to get back into the swing of things?  It’s the beginning of June and almost the Summer Solstice and I’d rather hide under my bed and nap.

So, in honor of napping, let’s discuss summer reading!

TIGER TIGER is available now for pre-order from Samhain Publishing and will be out officially on July 23rd.  The most exciting part of this book, for me, is them trying to find the killer.  They know it’s a tiger, and they know it’s not one of Neal’s men, but they have trouble finding the actual perpetrator.  It was fun trying to figure out how to hide some of the clues and reveal others, and decide when to do it.  You’ll have to tell us if it “worked” for the story or not.

In the meantime, I’m going to go hide under a pillow with my kitten.  Enjoy!

    I'm sure where to put those clues, and the red herring clues will prove the most difficult part of the write. Can't be too obvious but must treat the reader like a 'thinking' person.

    I still sigh each time I see that cover….:P

  2. I know a published author…WOW and WOW again. So pleased you're finding success where you dreamed it would be.

    Speaking of returning from holidays, the washing at the end of it I can't think about before the holiday. I wouldn't go. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi, Tess! I'm so pleased you like our cover. We're really pleased with it, not least because the cover artist really got Steve right. πŸ™‚

    I agree with you on trying to get it right for the thinking person as the reader. It's so often today that books have to "dumb down" for a target audience and it's such a pleasure to have the privilege not to have to do that. It's been tremendous fun to write this one and place as much emphasis on the mystery as on the romance.

  4. Hi, Eaton! I know a poet and photographer in Australia! I feel as WOW about that, too! πŸ™‚

    I know what you mean about the washing at the end of vacation; especially with six kids I can't imagine how much wash there must be. Evey and I were chatting about her brood and I asked if she has to do a wash a day just to keep on top of it. My friend in Canada has four boys and pretty much does have to do a load a day; when their pipes freeze in Winter is doubly-awful because the poor boys look at her: "Don't we have clean jeans, mum?"

    For me, it's not so much the wash, since it's just me and my hub (I make my grown son do his own wash); it's the unpacking of the luggage. We take a lot of non-clothing stuff (projects, computers, this-and-that) and getting it all back where it's supposed to go is just not nearly as fun as curling up on the couch with a new stitching project.
