Truth be told, since getting a Kindle about 2 years ago, I hardly ever buy paper books any more. They take up space we don’t have and they are so annoying to read in bed when you have to flip the page, plus, I can’t take five of them when I go on holiday. Also, e-books rock because they’re, basically, my job. 😉
But, some of you expressed an interest in the book shelf that snuck into that picture of our office I posted last week, so I took a (rather shaky) panoramic picture of it with my phone. (Click to enlarge.)
As you can see, I like the odd celebrity biography (Stephen Fry’s is my absolute favourite) and some early Patricia Cornwell as well as some Charles Bukowski, but if you want an accurate picture of what I read these days, you’d be better off checking out my GoodReads shelves.
In the spirit of seamlessly going from one topic to the next, it also happens that the paperback of Summer’s End is now available on Amazon (B&N and The Book Depository should follow soon.) 😉 It even appears to be on sale and soon, when you buy the paperback, you’ll get the e-book for free (but I’ve only just activated this so it may take a few days before this is effective.)
Summer’s End is a slow but steady burner and garnered some really great reviews (thank you!), including this one over the weekend, which called me the queen of erotica, which, frankly, is way too much honour (but maybe they meant the queen of lesbian erotica ;-p).
Speaking of reviews (another seamless topic change!), I just got the French Kissing: Episode One edits back and I’ll be ready to start sending out ARCs soon (hopefully early next week). E-mail me (harperbliss at gmail dot com) if you want one (but do know that this is much more lesbian relationship drama than pure erotic romance) (+ cliffhangers!) Here’s the blurb:
Claire and Juliette have been best friends for twenty years. Together they own a successful PR agency in Paris, but their journey to success has come at a price. Juliette and her partner Nadia have drifted apart after ten years together while Claire hasn’t been on a real date for as long as she can remember. Meanwhile, their happily single employee Steph is getting a bit too close to a new, high-profile client.
