I’m not cloned, yet I’m in two different places: @ Guilty Indulgence Book Club and @ House of Millar

12 Feb

I was getting ready to post my next blog when my husband said, “Whitney Houston has died.” I thought he’s joking, but turned the TV on and… yes, Whitney Houston, the one and only had passed away. I’m at a loss for words and in denial. I want this to be a bad dream I’m going to wake up and shrug it off. Whitney once said, “I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.” So sad, so true.

As hard as it is to take my mind off of this sad news, life must go on and so does my book tour. Today’s post is about the right photo for the right cover and how I fell in love with the photos I chose for A World Apart. I’m over at Guilty Indulgence Book Club who so graciously posted a review for A World Apart yesterday. To quote the book club they are a, “ROMANCE REVIEW SITE. Everyone needs a little indulgence in their life.” I completely agree with that. They have hundreds and hundreds of reviews on their site, check it out if you are looking for a new book or to compare notes.

I’m also interviewed at House of Millar, the official website of author Aine P Massie. She’s an incredible talented writer with a knack for paranormal romance.

I’m warning you this is not a usual interview, but something special where I’m joined by my favorite hero, Maj. David Hunt. Curious to find out how he came to become my hero? Hop over and see it for yourself.

4 Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

11 Feb

Guess what I had for breakfast this morning?

Answer: 4 strawberries dipped in chocolate. No, I’m not on a diet, but all I had to do was to read the review for A World Apart posted on Guilty Indulgence and my hunger was miraculously satisfied. I can’t thank Christy enough for her thorough review (I should ask her if she’d write my blurbs from now on since she’s doing a better job than me).

Here an excerpt of her review:

This story is more about the journey and what life is like for two strong military doctors in a wartime environment.  It takes a while to get into the story and Ms. Skiba’s style of writing.   However, once you do it is hard to put the book down.  Their struggles truly become heart wrenching and it is hard to not want to keep reading to see if it will all work out for them and the characters around them in the end.  This book paints a poignant picture of what life is like in both Iraq and in the neighboring countries.  If you enjoy military pieces then this book will not disappoint.  It is a touching tale of what our military sacrifices each day and that even in wartime love can overcome any obstacle even the stubborn honor of a stubborn couple.

RATING:  I give this one four chocolate dipped strawberries.

If you are hungry for strawberries dipped in chocolate hop on over to the Guilty Indulgence website and help yourself (it’s even better if you bring a glass of champagne). The page has an incredible amount of reviews of all books romance. Who knows, before you leave  their site you’ll figured what’s your next romance read?
