Seasons Of...

Happy Wednesday Everyone,

To those observing Ash Wednesday, hope you have a good beginning to Lent.

What's your favorite season?

Since I love sunshine and cool weather, anything happy like Christmas and Easter attract me. I love the lights at Christmas, the carols, presents, everything. It's about anticipation and joy. Easter is about new life, second chances, and redemption.

So what's yours and why?

Hope everyone has a good Lent.

Have A Wonderfully Winsome Wednesday!

Running The Averie Marathon...

Happy Tuesday Everybody,

Whew! I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update this blog. Things are chaotic in the Averie Household and some days I feel like I'm running a marathon.

Recently I was talking with a friend of mine who mentioned she was starting a writers' group somewhere. I'm not able to be a part of the group, but she wants me to come out and do a talk. I'm very flattered and thrilled to be asked, so I inquired what she'd want me to talk about. She mentioned networking. We chatted a bit about that and my wheels have been turning ever since. (We're looking at me doing the talk sometime in the summer, we haven't set a date, yet). I'm looking forward to it.



My illustrious critique partner, Tess St. John, has just released the 5th and final book in her Undercover Intrigue, romantic suspense series. The novel is entitled Eyes Of A Stranger and for a limited time it's on sale for 99 cents on Amazon Kindle. I haven't read this one and am really looking forward to seeing how she wraps up the series. The romantic suspense have been my favorite out of all the many genres she writes. I like her other work, but this series has been my favorite. I'm so happy for her. She works so hard and has done some incredible things with her work.

Another new release that I am excited about (and have read--and enjoyed) is Stacy Hoff's Desire In The Arctic (sequel to Desire In The Everglades, but you can read them out of order, but I recommend reading the first one before picking up this one). What can I say about this novel aside from fun, adventure, suspense, and romance all rolled into a heart-warming novel is worth sitting down with a good cup of coffee (or tea, or wine, or whatever drink you prefer) and enjoying. Stacy has an incredible imagination and never ceases to intrigue me with her ideas. This one is also available on Amazon Kindle.

I continue working on my WIP (Work In Progress) as much as possible and I'm making some progress on it. I'm not sure when I'll be done, but I'm hoping before too many more months go by I'll have it written and working on editing and getting it critiqued. 

I'm also working on critiquing a fellow author's work. We've worked with each other before and I really want to help her out. She's a very imaginative author who nails emotion in her novels quite well.

What are you reading these days?

Have A Tremendously Terrific Tuesday!
