Howdy,

The release date will probably be about... August 15th/August 16th.

I apologize for having pushed it back from July, but I have a valid reason.

The book is much longer than the original one. It's going to end up being between 110k-120k words.

Wild Wastes 1 was only about 90k.

So it took me a li... Read more of this blog post »

Pokud se aspoň trochu zajímáte o knížky nebo se pohybujete v blogosféře, Geniální přítelkyně vás nemohla minout. Jednu dobu byla opravdu všude, každý pořádný knihomolský hipster si ji fotil s kafem na instagram a občas jsem měla trochu strach, že když otevřu ledničku, vykoukne na mě Elena Ferrant...

Een paar jaar terug hadden we het eigenlijk niet echt; boekengoodies. Langzaam aan kwamen er wat sieraden en linnen tasjes op de markt, maar daar hield het in mijn beleving een beetje mee op. Nu kunnen we in Nederland ook genieten van allerlei toffe boekengoodies, gemaakt door uitgevers en nieuwe...

  Here’s a cheesy, tacky,  pretentious turn of phrase that makes me shudder:   They shared a kiss.    This phrase works for me like a red flag. It says that I am reading   a run-of-the-mill, no surprises, HEA romance.   Which is fine, if that’s what I’m looking for.    But this morning I was loo... Read more of this blog post »
