I just finished the final proof edits on my very first novella COURTED BY THE COWBOY– to celebrate I bought a book! Lately I haven’t gotten to do much reading outside of my own work and massive amounts of research books and while in the drugstore this week I snagged a copy of Elizabeth Lowell’s latest romantic suspense SHADOW AND SILK. In light of this stupendous occasion, I thought it would be fun to do a “What are you reading?” check in.
So, what are you reading? If you have the book handy, crack it open and share a line, the first line that grabs your eye! Here’s a snippet from SHADOW AND SILK:
Forgetting time, forgetting herself, forgetting everything but the knowledge massed in the room, Dani wandered among the bookcases.
She sounds like a kindred spirit 😉
I’m a huge Lowell fan, she sucked me in with her ONLY series and though she’s no longer writing westerns (serious pout), her RS books don’t disappoint when it comes to hot, rugged heroes and savvy heroines – lots of action and grit—so much so that this one had me peeking through one eye in a few parts *g*, but all in all, a great read.
Where do you keep books-in-progress: desk, coffee table, countertop, nightstand? I’m an all-at-once kind of reader—I have no patience—so while I just started this book, I also just finished it. It either goes from my hands to the keeper shelf or my hands to my mom. I might have to occasionally tuck said book under my arm to prepare a meal or run an errand, but generally, I’m clutching the spine until it’s finished. Likely why I don’t often get to read for pure pleasure. My mom is a huge romance reader, as a stroll around her house would prove. She will have three or four books going at once. One on the coffee table, one on her nightstand, one in the kitchen and one in her purse! She ALWAYS has a book handy 😉
What book don’t you have that you’d like to be reading? I’m anxiously awaiting our own Linda Broday’s next book (February!) and I have yet to buy Dorothy Garlock’s new western, Leaving Whiskey Bend –she’s one of my original favorite western authors—Sins of Summer being my all-time favorite of hers. I was thrilled to see she had a new western out. Another that keeps eluding my cart is CL Wilson’s King of Sword and Sky (Tairen Soul) – I loved the first two books in her fantasy Series.
