I know a lot of teens out there are done with school until fall – yay!!!! I hope everyone enjoys this holiday weekend with fun in the sun! The thought of summer reading takes me back to when I was in high school. It seemed each summer I was hooked on a particular author or subject. After my junior year, I spent the summer months reading lots of Stephen King. If you’ve seen any of my other visits on other sites, you will have noticed I like books in many different genres – romance, true crime and mysteries! The first work I read of Stephen King was his book of short stories. I think “Thinner” was in there and some others. I recall reading them over and over, because when I got to the end of each story the first time, I was like, “Huh?” Yes, totally confused sometimes. So, I’d go back and read it again – usually with a much better understanding of what was going on. King’s work is just so creative and well written! He must let his mind get so twisted at times (which I totally admire by the way.)
What books is everyone out there excited to read this summer? As for me, I will be working on the finishing touches to the sequel to Veiled Virtues. It is entitled Latent Legacy and you can read more about it on my website listed below!
Here is a bit about my novel, Veiled Virtues:
When Paige Stewart left America to house-sit in England, her only thoughts were to get away from her controlling mother and to have fun. Little did she know that her working holiday would find her hearing eerie voices, experiencing alarming dreams and bleeding from old scars. Although Paige’s differences confuse and disgust her, she opens up to the shopkeeper of a strange metaphysical store in town, where she finds much more than tarot cards and crystals. Soon, Paige is stalked like prized game. Relentlessly pursued, her holiday takes a turn for the eerie and dangerous. Her only saving grace may be a modern-day English knight who sweeps her off her feet and recognizes the true virtues the American teen unknowingly possesses.
Coming soon to Barnes & Noble and iTunes!!!
