Time to READ

keepcalmreadWhat am I reading these days . . . AM I reading these days?

I was going to re-read Grace Livingston Hill’s The Substitute Guest. Nope.

I pulled a few Christian Fiction Christmas novels off the shelf my last day before Christmas at the library. Did I read those? Nope.

Ouch.

The massive number of Christmas events and celebrations are over, New Years is coming this weekend, and what have I read?

Edits, mostly.i-love-my-editor

Don’t get me wrong, I love editing my own work. It is a joint-effort between my editor, Pam, and I, and I am constantly amazed at the things she points out and suggests that make me smile and face-palm all at the same time.

But rather than talk about what I HAVEN’T read, I’ll tell you what I’ve just started. It’s Sandra Robbins’ Love Inspired Suspense, Stalking Season, part of the Smokey Mountain Secrets series. I’ve had it on my TBR pile for a while, and I’m FINALLY starting to see some time to really enjoy reading.

Here’s a blurb:

stalkingseasonsandrarobbinsAfter moving to the Smoky Mountains at Christmastime, Cheyenne Cassidy is ready for a fresh start—until danger from her past follows her to her new home. Cheyenne believed the stalker who killed her parents was dead, but somehow he’s back and determined to kill her. And her only hope for survival is relying on Deputy Sheriff Luke Conrad. The lawman wants to help Cheyenne face down the obsessive madman, but he can’t protect her if he doesn’t know the full story. And Cheyenne has no choice but to trust him with a secret she’s never revealed about her stalker. Armed with the knowledge of her tragic past, Luke will put his life on the line to keep her alive…but will that be enough to save her?

Sandra is an awesome author, and a member of my own writing group. If you haven’t read her novels, both historical and suspense, you’re missing something! She has another series, the “Firebrand” series, it is amazing, as well. Here is a blurb for that series:

The Firebrand Brotherhood began as an elite group of ex-military individuals who performed missions for the CIA.sandrarobbins_targeted-200x300 Now retired, they have opened The Firebrand Training Center to train military and law enforcement personnel. Enemies who will stop at nothing want vengeance on the brothers, and they intend to annihilate the leaders of Firebrand and those they love.

 Book 3 of this series is in my I HAVE TO READ THIS AS SOON AS I CAN GET MY HANDS ON IT pile.

So, the moral of this story is, don’t beat yourself up if you CAN’T seem to find time to read between hurrying hither and yon. Apparently the Farmer’s Almanac is calling for lots of snow in my neck of the woods in the next few months.

I’m not making any New Year’s resolutions, so I can spend the time I would have been researching diets or exercising doing what I love most . . .

READING!

Read on, readers!
