I've been writing a lot recently (always good in my book) and my reading has been haphazard. But I have read a few great books that I want to share with you.
Now, my first genre of preference is Romance. Always has been, always will be. Funny, I haven't read one in a couple of weeks but I did pick up Stephanie Lauren's newest one for the Bastion Club today that I cannot wait to sink my teeth into. I've read each one of the Bastion Club novels and this last one is about the mysterious Royce. I know it'll be good. Don't you love to pick up a book simply because you know the author and you know proof positive you'll enjoy it. Then again, on the other hand, I can name a few authors who have fallen in my esteem. Authors who I used to buy blind, but no longer . . . but this is another story, another post.
On to another genre - Fantasy. I love a good fantasy. A favorite author of mine, James Rollins, I recently discovered writes Fantasy under the pseudonym of James Clemens. It took me awhile to find one of his latest (and this is from 2005), but I got ahold of Shadowfall, Book One of the Godslayer Chronicles. LOVED IT! I have Book Two, Hinterland, on order to arrive any day.
Now, have I finished writing my own contemporary yet? No. But it's nearly there. One more good night and then brush up a few edits and finally, I'll be able to send it out. Can't wait!
