This past week was a bit of a rollercoaster as the tiny beginnings of fall brought hurricane Florence our way. On Monday, she was headed straight for Virginia (where I live) and while we’re not super near the coast, they were saying we’d be looking at up to 12″ of rain on our already very sodden ground. (It’s been a very wet summer. Already a little rain can cause some minor flooding in low lying areas. I wasn’t looking forward to a foot of the stuff.)
As the week progressed, Florence took a turn to the south, which, while letting me give a big sigh of relief, put a lot of friends in harm’s way. We spent several years in South Carolina and still have many friends there (and in North Carolina, since the Army moves folks about at their whim). I’m grateful that, at least at the point I’m writing this, Florence has downgraded considerably. But the whole East Coast has had the wet summer we had here, so flooding is liable to be very bad, and looking at the path they’re projecting for the storm as it heads inland, well, there are a lot of folks who still need our prayers.
Hurricane season is my least favorite part of fall.

The Back-to-School Giveaway Ends This Week!
If you’ve been hanging around here at InspyRomance for long, you probably know about (and hopefully look forward to!) our two big giveaways each year. The second of those for 2018, our Back-to-School giveaway, will kick off mid-August. Because we know we have several international commenters and we like to share the wealth of paperbacks as much as we can, there will again be a special paperback prize package just for international readers. This year, however, rather than asking you to tell us in a comment (and then hoping we see it and update our spreadsheet), we’ve created this little form. If you’re an international reader (meaning you don’t live in the United States, just to be 100% clear on that definition from our perspective ;) ), please take two minutes and fill out this form. That way we know who to enter in our international giveaway!
