It’s almost impossible to concentrate on getting a book off my desk during the last months of the presidential campaign, aka Silly Season. When I’m not writing, I’m drawn to political stories on the internet, many of them jaw-dropping in their inanity or absurdity. I can’t bear to turn on the TV because I’m in a swing state (NC) where the candidates have bought up nearly all of the ad time. One of these days, I’m sure I’ll do a political blog … perhaps after the election.
I’m in the home stretch of my current book, West of Nowhere. One of my main characters is ex-Navy, and it’s led me to do tons of research on various aspects of Navy life, like uniforms, ranks, training, living quarters, military campaigns, bases & regulations. In particular, I’ve watched hours of videos taken aboard aircraft carriers, including a gripping PBS program on a training mission to launch and land jets & fuel tankers in rough seas. OMG!!! If I’d done this research 35-40 years ago, I bet I’d have joined the Navy for life. It’s exciting, meaningful & honorable, and I’m deeply proud of everyone I know who chose a military career.
People ask from time to time when my books are going to come out in Kindle or Nook, so I thought I’d let you know most of them are available now at the links I just highlighted, including my most recent release, Rhapsody. All of my titles are available in ebook or paperback through Bella. The mobi version will work on your Kindle; the epub version on your Nook.
Playing with Fuego is in the hands of the formatters. Many thanks to Carmen for spotting an errant accent in my blurb. My Spanish needs lots of work. English too, sometimes. 😉
