Hey everyone! I'm thick in the middle of writing book three and it occurs to me that I'm getting an awful lot of terms that are unique to my world build. I'd started putting a few of them up on my website, but I think I need to expand my list! If you have a few and feel like helping, check out what I have at www.teshilaire.com and tell me what else you think I need! Thanks so much and happy reading.

Best,
Tes

Hey all!

So, with the wonderful Carla at Book Monster Reviews help, we're setting up a street team to get the word out about the Paladin Warriors! If you are at all interested in joining, you can email Carla at assistant2_teshilaire@yahoo.com or you can stop on it at http://www.facebook.com/groups/370716... I hope you'll consider it. It's so exciting to work with people who love Roland, Karissa, and the Paladin as much as I do :-) Plus you're in on a lot of decision making and get to see lots of cool promo stuff like bookmarks, trading cards, etc, first! Whoot!

Best,
Tes Hilaire

So I did a blasphemous thing this last week amongst all the mom/wife stuff and trying to write stuff... I read two books that I've been dying to read for a while! Yup, shocking, right? See, what you don't know is that I have block out times when I don't read anything. Normally when I've sat down to blitz out the rough draft of my latest and greatest. And since that was on my agenda for April...

...May. I'll pound out the rough this May. ;-) Oh, you're wondering what I was reading? Well... there was Elisabeth Staab's King of Darkness and also Joan Swan's Fever. And I must say, if you haven't checked out these books yet, you should; these ladies are amazing storytellers with great voices! The problem with finding books that I love is that it's like an addiction. I want more!!! And of course these ladies are fellow debuts, so I have to wait for them to come out with their next latest and greatest. But, in the meantime, it had me looking at some of the other authors I've come to adore and what they've come out with recently. Like Elisabeth Naughton's Tempted, and Erin Kellison's Shadow Play (a part of her Shadow series! Which is sooo awesome btw), and, Oh, I need to read Laurie London's backlist now that I've read and loved her latest and greatest, and then OMG! Can you believe I haven't gotten a chance to read J.R. Ward's Lover Reborn yet? I think I'm going to hyperventilate I want to read that one so bad...

Okay... I'm collected again. I will read them all--and more--soon. Very soon. Kids are going to be out of school in a few weeks and then I'll have an entire summer by the pool to read to my hearts content... well... at least a few hours a day ;-)

What books have you read recently? Any awesome goodies I need to add to my July reading list?
