I’m smack in the middle of a deadline race, so this blog is going to be on the short side. And it’s going to be about what we all love–books, reading and romance. Leave a comment, and I’ll add your name to the hat for a drawing for a copy of “Brides of the West,” the April “spring wedding” anthology from Love Inspired Historicals. I’m in it with Janet Dean and Pamela Nissen.
Let’s get started:
Question: What are you reading right now? I just finished this month’s selection for the Flippin’ Pages Book Club. It’s called “Beaded Hope” and is about a group of women who travel to Africa on a mission trip to assist women with AIDS. Thoroughly enjoyed the story. It’s women’s fiction rather than romance, but the story tugged at every heartstring. It’s easy to take life for granted until you read about people coping with serious illness.
I also just finished a Kindle freebie about the Titanic: Lifeboat 8: The Untold Story. The tale of that great ship is always compelling. Hubris and heroism are an interesting mix.
What about you? What’s are you reading at the moment?
Question: Kindle / Nook Time. What’s the last book you bought or downloaded? I recently cleaned up on Filly freebies. I downloaded books by Margaret Brownley and Mary Connealy / Mary Nealy. When I finish the current ms, guess what I’m going to do for two solid weeks? I’m going to read nonstop. A blanket on the grass in the sun sounds really nice after months cooped up in the office.

Question: What’s your all time favorite western romance? It’s funny how a particular book will stay with you forever. For me, it’s The Outsider by Penelope Williamson. I read it when it first came out, 1997 or so, and I still think back to the story and how it inspired me. After all this time, it’s still my No. 1 favorite.
