#HappyAnniversary to Romancing the Genres – 10 years strong!

 

It’s the 10th Anniversary month for Romancing the genres and the Genre-istas are having a full month party! Today it’s my turn and I’m talking about why we should be celebrating out Independent Bookstores.

It’s no secret that writers are readers first. I know I was – and still am.

As a child, before I had disposable income of my own,  I got all my books from the local library. It was wonderful to be able to stop by any day and take out a number of books to read. The one drawback? I  had to return them. I really wanted to keep them, too, but couldn’t.

Flash forward to the time when I began making my own money and could spend it on things I wanted. Did I purchase fabulous clothes? Travel to exotic locations? Drive a luxury car?

Nope. I bought books. Hardbacks, paperbacks, new and used. Books were my binge purchase, my addiction.

Still are.

#longandShortreviews #bloggingchallenge 4.22.2020

Wednesday has rolled around again and it’s time for the weekly blogging challenge from Long and Short Reviews. Today’s topic is My silliest pet peeves.

I’m a writer so is it any wonder ALL my pet peeves involve words and mis-pronunciations?

I think not.

So…

It’s pronounced supposEDLY not supposUBLY.

It’s pronounced MOOT ( like in moot point), not MUTE ( like in shut up!!)

It’s pronounced MIS-chuh-vus ( mischievous) not Miss-CHEE-vee-us. ( this pronunciation drives me to drink!)

It’s pronounced TENTERHOOKS not Tenderhooks. It’s so far removed from tender, folks, as can be.

And for the love of Mike, it’s REGARDLESS not Ir-regardless ( which, in my opinion,  isn’t even a word!!)

Okay, rant over. Let’s see what some of the other bloggers in this weekly hop have to say: L&ST

Hey, did you hear? I’ve got a new book releasing on 5.20.2020! VANILLA WITH A TWIST is part of the One Scoop or Two new summer series from Wild Rose Press. And if you PREORDER before the 5.20.2020 release date, it’s only 99cents!!! the price rises on release day and thereafter, so lock in the sale price today!

And check out the great book trailer a dear friend produced for me:

Until next time, peeps ~ Peg

#longandShortReviews #Weeklyblogchallenge 2.12.2020

This week’s topic is another goodie and I’m sure it’s gonna be controversial. Not is a bad way – but in a get people talking way.

This week, we’re talking about BOOKS I REREAD OR WANT TO REREAD.

I have several friends who typically say once they read a book, that’s it. Done. Fine. Put it on the shelf and forget about it.

Whenever I tell these friends that I’m rereading a book they look at me with horror  slashed across their faces and the first question out of their mouths is, “You couldn’t find anything new to read??”

Well, yes, I could. And I’ve got my next new book lined up on my Kindle, thank you very much. But I wanted to reread this book.

Curiosity ensues and it never ends well, believe me.

I’ve reread GONE WITH WIND 5 times. The last time I was especially cognizant of how racially horrible the book is since we are living in the time of socially consciousness. While it is a terrible book about hatred and racism, it is at it’s heart a love story between Rhett and Scarlett, unfortunately set in the most heinous time our of American History.

Pride and Prejudice is another book I’ve read at least 10 times and each time I do I fall in love all over again with the English language.

I’ve reread every single IN DEATH novel 5 times, starting a marathon read each time with the first book and moving all the way to whatever book is current. Right now, that’s number 50 – Golden in Death. Reading these books is enjoyable, yes, but it’s also a masterclass in how to write a fictional series, character development, world building, and a marriage/love story between two people who are wrong for each other but are sosososos right! My favorite ( and I’ve read it 10 times) is NEW YORK TO DALLAS ( the only book without the IN DEATH moniker.) And yes, every single time, even though I know it’s coming, I cry my eyes out at the last 5 pages.

That’s it for my list. List see what some of the other authors in this blog hop have to say about re-reading. I bet we’re gonna get some really diverse opinions and books! L&SR

And don’t forget I’ve got a brand new ROMANTIC SUSPENSE out, the first in a new series titled, A PRIDE OF BROTHERS: RICK.

 

Until next week, peeps ~ Peg
