Hi!! Lindi here.
First, I’d like to congratulate Beth Gillihan on winning a copy of Email me at authorlindip at gmail (dot) com. We’re also having a FB party here starting today! Please join the fun if you’d like.
I talked last month about novellas. I found I really enjoy writing them. But I have been on such a tight schedule with my day job and trying to write, that I’ve been tight on time for other things. But the good news?
I’m going on vacation.
And I’m going to read! Ha! (At least I think I am. We will have our 18 month old grandson with us, but his parent’s are coming, too.) I made sure I had the novella done that I’m working on now. I didn’t want to work while on vacation. Except as writers, were really always working in a way. Because our stories flow through our brains and veins almost all the time. It’s hard to turn it off. I keep wondering why I’m still doing this and it’s because I have to for the release of the folks living in my head. (Gosh! I hope that doesn’t sound too weird.)
Next week we are going to Ponte Vedra Beach in Florida. It’s north of St. Augustine and south of Jacksonville. We really like the beach. It’s nice and not crowded. We go every other year with my husband’s family, and this year decided to go with some of my family. The youngest one going is 18 months, the oldest 92. (And she rocks the bathing suit!! I’m serious.)
The next trip is in the works. My son and his wife just moved to NYC! And I’ve never been. His 30th birthday is in November and hubby and are planning a trip. We are thinking of staying in an Air B&B. Has anyone stayed in one? I know people who have and they’ve been pleased with the results.
(This is the view from their apartment!–and their cat, Ollie)
What a contrast, right? The beach and the big city. The thing is I love them both. But I’ve been leaning toward writing novels set in super urban areas. The novella series I talked about in my last post was a small town city. Small community, but restaurants, parks and shops. But then, think New York. I can’t wait to go and experience the city. I’m sure I’ll have a “novel” idea come into mind. I am also writing a series set in downtown Atlanta. It’s called Love Atlanta Style. Those books are fun and urban. Fast-paced and full of city life. Uber, walking to the grocery and high rise apartments.
Do you have a particular “feel” you like to read? If you answer comment “urban” you will be in a drawing for a copy of Uptown Heiress, the first book in my Love Atlanta Style series.
If you comment “small town” you’ll be in the drawing for a copy of Love and Grace–a boxed set with my small town romance, One Autumn Love.
Yes, 2 #giveaways!!
Read on! Big city or small town, just keep reading.
