Romance Writers Weekly


Hello and happy Tuesday. Thanks so much for joining us today. We really appreciate it. Hope you are staying healthy!

This week’s challenge comes from the fabulous Brenda Margriet:

Do you read differently in different seasons? Need lighter reads for summer sunshine and save the deep thoughts for dark winter nights?

Seasons don’t really effect my reading because, let’s face it, I live in Florida. Our four seasons are warm, hot, hotter and you’ve got to be kidding. So, my reading is more determined by my mood and what I’m writing. For example, when I’m writing an historical, reading one puts me in the right frame of mind. And the same goes for romantic suspense. Lately, I’ve been working on the second book in my “Notorious” series, so crime stories are what I’ve been choosing. But I’m also working on a time travel romance, so I am alternating between contemporary and historical. And yes, I read a lot.

I love flipping through my Kindle or looking over my bookshelves (definitely plural on those bookshelves) and picking whatever strikes my fancy at the time. During the summer, especially, there seems to be more time for just sitting down and savoring a good story. Empty nest, puppy growing up and not being quite so demanding, I have the luxury of reading.

No matter what is going on around me, I can slip into a good story and go there. Reading is such magic. Speaking of magic, you have to pre-order “The Promise of Frost”, the latest by Brenda Margriet…

Only 99 cents.

Releases November 12.

An adventurous kitten, a curious dog, and a matchmaking eight-year-old guarantee this will be a holiday to remember.
Luca Tannon’s new neighbor is a sexy but surly single dad. Which is all for the best since she’s focused on reclaiming her life after a toxic long-term relationship.
Caleb Frost won’t let anything distract him from ensuring his son’s first Christmas as the child of divorced parents is perfect. And that includes the irritatingly intriguing woman living next door.
Everything is going as planned…until it’s not.

Now let’s hop over and learn about Brenda’s reading choices…
