If you've decided this is the year you're going to read more books, Girlxoxo has you covered with a master list of the 2019 reading challenges. Any challenge you can think of, this list has it, including one that we all probably need to use: Beat the Backlist which encourages us to read all the books we've already purchased but haven't yet opened. Our shelves would thank us.
This Master list has something for everyone, no matter what type of challenge you're up to this year! So go ahead and take a look and pick your challenge. It's never too late to start reading more!
Over the years, readers have asked me where I get my inspiration from. Usually, I've told them life in general, that I can look at things around me and get an idea. With my upcoming suspense novel, Last Showing, the idea came to me when I was looking to buy a house back in 2012.
I had a wonderful real estate agent, and she and I talked about my writing and what type of books we liked. As she showed me houses, I asked her if she'd ever had any scary showings with potential buyers. Were there any creeps she had to deal with? Fortunately, she said no, but my brain started spinning. I got the idea for a real estate agent who shows a house to a serial killer. I told Jennifer (my agent) about my idea, and she wanted to be in the book!
I started writing this book in 2013, but I put it aside when the muse wasn't cooperating. It's never taken me this long to write a book, but I wanted to make sure this one was done right. I wrote it, finished it, then decided I didn't like the story line so I rewrote it this year. Well, most of it anyway. I hope I did it justice, and I hope you (and Jennifer) like Last Showing. It releases on November 30th!
On June 30th, The complete Spirit series will release. That's four books in one bundle. Now that this series is over, I'll miss my Angels of Death, and while it's possible I might revisit them in the future, for now, my muse has moved on.
I hope you enjoy all four books, and please let me know what you think of my angels!
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
