We here in southeastern Michigan have been experiencing a very interesting summer weather-wise. On more than one occasion, the temperatures have fluctuated nearly thirty degrees in a twenty-four hour period. We’ve had an excessive amount of rain, humidity worthy of the Columbian rainforest and storms boasting gale force winds and hail. I'm so over being without power I could spit! Do I need to tell you that when we lose it, it's on the 95 degree days, not the 70 degree ones. I've thrown away more food than I care to think about. One of the power surges blew out my oven (thank God hubby grills). I'm to a point now where after I've been out of the house for any length of time, I up a silent prayer before I open my front door.
Two weeks ago, I attended the opening party for Off The Beaten Path, a small bookstore in picturesque downtown Farmington. Cindy Spencer Pape was the special guest. Steampunk was the theme and it was fun to see all the costumes. Cindy and I had the same editor when I started out at Ellora's Cave and she invited me to participate in the Carnal Reunions anthology, thusly starting my career with Resplendence Publishing. She's a sweatheart and it was great to see her again after almost three years. I highly recommend her books!
On July 31st, my fifteenth book, Megan's Men, releases! That's so surreal to me.
Have a spectacular weekend~
