I usually give Jasmine the Writing Cat top billing by including yet another adorable picture of her, but today, I decided to include a picture out my kitchen window instead.
To give you a little perspective (literally), I live in the basement of an old church that has been converted into a really awesome apartment, so usually, my kitchen window is just a smidge above ground level.
Today, though, the snow is piled so high, "ground" is above my head by quite a bit and I have to look up to see sky. We've been getting snow off and on for a couple of months but last night and this morning, it dumped. I started to think it was too darn bad I don't have a fireplace because if this kept up, I'd need to reenact my own Blizzard of Love scene in front of an open fireplace. 😉 It's stopped for the moment, although all of the forecasts call for more snow.
Anyway, just a little weather update from my corner of the world. 🙂 Sorry Jasmine - I'll put a picture of you in next week, promise.
So, last week, y'all were AWESOME and filled out a survey for me re: what you like and don't like in books.
Short Answer: I have a diverse group of readers, that's for sure! 😀
Long Answer: About 1/3 of you like it on the clean / sweet side; about 2/3 like it on the steamy side.
This tells me that I should take the time to do a "sweet" version of a book, along with my standard "steamy" version. I'm going to try that with my next novel - you guys keep me updated on your thoughts on that.
As part of doing the survey, if you wanted to be entered into the Amazon gift card drawing, then you could choose to fill out that part of the survey. I just did the drawing - Linda from Florida, you're the winner! Keep your eyes peeled for a $5 gift card winging your way from Amazon. Thank you to everyone who took the time to fill out that survey - it's so appreciated.
(Oh and for anyone who hasn't done the survey yet, go do it now! I really want to know your thoughts. It helps me out immensely).
Usually, this is when I recommend books by other authors, but since I just got my cover back from my cover designer, I wanted to show that off instead. 😀 This is the cover for the book I'm going to give you, dear reader, absolutely free simply for hanging out with me every week. No charge, no hoops to jump through, and you won't be able to buy it on Amazon or anywhere else. It'll be available exclusively to my newsletter subscribers and nowhere else.
Until next week,
