Somehow it’s already September. I blinked and the summer vanished. How??? How did this happen??? Have the calendar trolls been toying with me?
So I never got around to making a book page for Made You Look or pretty much any other book, for that matter. Don’t act surprised, because you already know I’m a terribly inefficient website administrator. The very word “administrator” being applied to ME is wrong. Wrong, I tell you. I don’t administrate. Apparently I don’t blog much either.
Anyway, my latest book, Made You Look, was released today. And we should all know by now that Harlequin novels remain on the shelves for exactly 5 minutes, so don’t tell me I didn’t warn you if you wait around until, oh, say, September 15th and can’t find my book anywhere. Go to the store right now and buy it, or get yourself on over to http://www.eharlequin.com and order it. EHarlequin is kind of cool because you don’t even need a credit card to order from there.
Okay, and that’s enough self-promoting. If I do any more I’m going to have to go take a shower.
But what about the book, you ask? Here’s a reader letter I wrote for it, which I kinda like:
What would you do if you had a neighbor who liked to perform indiscreet acts in front of his open window, for all the world to see? Would you draw the shades, or would you pop some popcorn and pull up a chair for the show? When the heroine of Made You Look is presented with this dilemma, she watches, and watches, and watches some more.
I live in an apartment building similar to the heroine’s, with another building across the way, and I’ve often wondered how many eyes are watching me when I accidentally leave a curtain open. And I can see into other people’s apartments as easily as they can see into mine. Lucky for my neighbors, I have a natural instinct to honor other people’s privacy. Otherwise, they might find their lives serving as fodder for fiction.
Unfortunately, I haven’t ever seen anything remotely interesting happening through an open window, even accidentally. Which is why I write fiction—I can create a world where there’s always something fascinating happening in the open window.
I hope you enjoy Made You Look!
