Taking a bit of a break from writing to update my blog today.

I’m very happy with my progress! I hope to keep chipping away at that wordcount so the book is done by the end of August. We shall see.

In booktalk land – I read Patricia Briggs’ Cry Wolf this last week and I absolutely adored it. I think Patricia Briggs is one of the best world builders writing today and so I wasn’t surprised at all to discover just how much I loved Cry Wolf.

Some romance, some action, some suspense – all combined into a really quick, engrossing read.

Another winner from Briggs that has me excited to see what’s next for Charles and Anna. The little tidbit at the end of CW for the next Mercy book looks very good too.

And Emma Holly’s All You Can Eat now available in mass market. This was a solid 3 1/2 – 4 star read for me. Amusing, sexy, hot sex scenes. I think Personal Assets remains my favorite contemporary along with Velvet Glove and I was disappointed that we didn’t get to see more of Jack’s “darker” sexual side but there’s something in All You Can Eat for just about all tastes!

OK, back to work for me!

    I just finished re-reading Patricia’s Moon Called. I love her Mercy Thompson series. But I’ve only read the first two so far – she’s up to four now, isn’t she? I really need to get up to date on that series.

    Way to go on the progress of your own book, by the way.

    I’ve got the Briggs book in the TBR…hoping to read it in the next few days before my sister gets back from Jordan…she’s already requesting it in the next book box I send her. :)
