Well, my glorious Mexican vacay with Mr. Crane continues. We are in the funkiest little hotel, like 6 blocks from the beach, and it is super sunny and dazzlingly pretty every day. Right now we are sitting outside having coffee and rolls. It's sort of amazing how quickly I forgot about home, and all the snow. It doesn't seem real, yet I know that snow exists. It's like another dimension. Maybe I am just starting to block it out.
I have been tearing through books. I read Something About You by Julie James, and I'm reading The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook as well as Naked by Megan Hart. I started Lord Perfect, but I might be off my historicals tear. Which is kind of amazing. I thought I'd never be off that phase - there were a couple months when it was all I wanted to read. I was reading Naked on the beach in this beach picture, and the cover is pretty racy, and I felt weird about it for a while, but I got over it. Another day there was a woman reading a book with a cover ripped off of it. Nosy me had to get a look at what it was - something by Debbie Macomber, I think.
|Mr. Crane, aka King Coconut, found a place where they will |
chop apart a raw coconut and let you drink the juice and eat the
meat of it. I'm not sure if carne de coconut is the correct
term here. Does anybody know?
I was worried about the weather - the forecasts kept calling for rain, but it has been brilliantly sunny every day. The sun is so strong, it's just like, screw you to all the rain and clouds, which scatter off.

Mammoth book edits
However, I got my edits back from my story for Mammoth Book of Ghost Romance (out in late September). I am very excited for this story! It's unrelated to the Disillusionists world, and kind of more humorous. Or at least, I feel that it is. This anthology is going to be awesome. Stacia Kane, Jennifer Estep, Sharon Shinn and a number of other authors I admire are in it.
AAD interview series...
I'm over at Livre De Amour (Books of Love), a new-to-me blog that looks really fun. Blogger Grace is doing this whole series of interviews with people who are attending Authors After Dark. Come say hi!
