The Latest

I finished The Beach House on Sunday. Go me! It ended up being 21,000 words. Sigh. Someday I’ll be able to write something longer. When? I don’t know. Oh, well, I hope that everyone will enjoy reading The Beach House. I really enjoyed writing it.

Here’s my submitted blurb:

Beautiful model and actor, Mason Adams, is renting a beach house for the summer in a seaside town to get away from his fast-paced, partying lifestyle in Los Angeles. After serving time in rehab after nearly dying from a drug overdose, his agent is convinced the quiet life is the perfect way to get Mason’s life and career back on track.

Mason’s not sure the sedate life is for him until he meets his next door neighbor, crime fiction novelist, John Harding. Forced to retire from the fire department after a career ending injury, John has found a new life in a modest beach house as a best-selling novelist. Life is good, but quiet and not exactly exciting. Until Mason comes to stay next door for the summer.

Unable to resist the allure of each other, Mason and John begin an affair. But when the summer’s over, Mason may have to choose between exciting new career opportunities and his new life with John.

Unfortunately, though I don’t have a release date yet, I am told it won’t be until September or October before this one is out. I knew “Raft Boy” was going to be my cover (it’s the cover for all the Hot Summer Daze series), and as it happens, the cover is now done, so there it is on the side bar and below (edited from earlier post).

Now I can turn my attention to Twice in a Lifetime. I’d like to have it done by the end of June. I’m already done with the first three chapters. Now I am going away a few days out of this month without the laptop so we’ll see if I make the deadline. If not, it may be pushed slightly into July.

Have a great week.
