Reading, Writing and Reviews

I find that sometimes I'm able to get a lot read and sometimes, not so much. August was a slow reading month - partly due to going on vacation, and then of course, the excitement of the release of my book. I've been making up for it in September, reading a lot of great books with several more books in a TBR pile patiently waiting. I'll do a post soon updating my recent reading. But it is good to be flying through books again.

Of course I can't fly through books and write at the same time. Something has to give. (I also can't crochet at the same time, and I have a blanket I have to finish by Friday, so we'll see how this week goes.) But even with doing a bunch of reading, I managed to get a lot of writing done this past week. None this weekend - there was a family wedding to keep me busy instead.

I love, when I'm writing, and a scene pops into my head fully formed. Then the words just fly onto the page. Those are the good days. Other days I'm just plodding along hoping to get to that take off point so I can fly again.

And to wrap up this rather random post, this week there were two reviews of When Mike Kissed Emma that made me smile.

The first was at Night Owl Romance.
My favorite line was:
I found myself flipping the pages as quickly as possible to find out what was going to happen next to everyone.

You can read the rest of the review here.

The next review was at Fallen Angel Reviews.
My favorite line of this one was:
This is a delightful story with all of the growing-up situations that happen to people in high school.

Have a great week everyone!


  1. Congrats on two fantastic reviews! It doesn't get much better than that!

  2. Great reviews!! :)

    Good luck writing/reading/crocheting! For the past year or so, I've been wishing for the ability to control time, just so I can get everything done!
