Five Things for Friday

Let’s talk.

I keep getting anxious emails from all of you—am I writing, am I going to have a new book out soon, and why is this taking so long?????

All good questions.

I want to be honest with all of you because you are my readers, my dear friends, so here is how it is.

I finished the book last fall. After a bit of a delay, my agent and I decided to part company. I had suspected for sometime that this new shiny book wouldn’t be her cup of tea, and that would be her reaction, so it … Read more »

Tomorrow (Saturday, Jan 29th) I will be taking over on Instagram for Romanced By the Book. Megan and Marielle are a dynamic duo of romance loving readers who post about books and authors and sponsor read alongs–most recently diving deep into And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake. Drop by and leave a comment

, or make sure to include them in your follows.

They will also be posting a zoom interview with yours truly. Please promise not to horrified of live me. LOL.

Now let’s get to the list. We … Read more »

Five Things for Friday

Yes, I am okay. To all of you who have sent me emails and DMs asking what’s happened, where have I gone, well…. I’m great and I’ve been living in a tent. By choice.

So . . . about mid-July we packed up about 75% of our house and put it into storage and started remodeling. Like everything around here at Chez Boyle, we do most of the things ourselves. We packed.

We did some demolition. Here is the point where my husband said, “you’ll never get all that in your car.” I did.

Then we patched things up and … Read more »

Wow! Fridays come so fast. At least this week it did. What are you up to this weekend? Or better yet, what are you reading? More on that below in this week’s Five Things:

One

Do you rewatch movies, like over and over? I found myself watching Captain Marvel again this week, and not long after I put it on, suddenly the entire household had gathered and we curled up and watched it.

I can’t even count how many times we’ve done this.

Why this one? I like the theme of self discovery and the power within that others can … Read more »

Five Things for Friday

One of the rituals of spring is the return of the house sparrows next door. These little winged cuties have found a particular spot in a crevice in the neighbor’s roof and it’s there they make their annual nest.

The babies have hatched and this morning I watched Mama Sparrow shove them out of their third story home. It’s sort of horrifying at first. Out comes this little ball of fluff and they plummet toward the ground, but somehow they manage–always at the last moment–to begin flapping their little wings and begin their new journey.

I realized in many ways, … Read more »

Yikes! My weeks are getting away from me again. I am working really hard to finish my next book and the days are spinning past me. I look up and it’s Saturday and I’ve forgotten everything else. But this week I made sure to get it into my schedule: Five Things.

And here they are:

As the weather warms here in Seattle (we actually had a very dry and warm April) it is time to fill pots with annuals and I am all in. I have more pots than a woman should be allowed and I fill them every … Read more »

Just in time for the weekend–Five Things. Enjoy!

One

First of all, thank you to each and every one of you who email me with your ideas and kind words–I so appreciate hearing from you. And last week, Robin B. emailed me about one of her favorite Etsy vendors, Mashalaurence.

Thank you so much for sharing this link, Robin, because I was entranced by these gorgeous literary prints, such as this one of Jane Eyre and Mr. Rochester. Isn’t it amazing? Go check out the other wonderful Bronte and Jane Austen inspired art.

My mom belongs to the Quilter’s Anonymous quilt group here in Seattle and every year they have a very lovely quilt show.

One year my mother was the featured artist!

Do you like rooting for the little guy? Here is the video for you. In Penguin v. the Orcas, our hero is a plunky little penguin who finds itself being chased all over by a band of orcas, and finds a way to escape that is a delight. Enjoy.

When new shows arrive, I always get excited because I love good mystery shows but not police dramas. Shows like, Person of Interest, or The Pretender. The Equalizer, with Queen Latifah in the starring role checks all the boxes. Cool, savvy heroine? Check. Nerdy tech? Check. People … Read more »

Into December we joyfully proceed. Yes, I am still on last week’s Joy celebration. That doesn’t mean I don’t have a new word for all of us to celebrate.

First off, thank you to so many of you who wrote to me to share your lists of Joy. They brought tears to my eyes and lightened my heart. Thank you so much for sharing.

And one quick reminder–don’t forget, I will be on Julia Quinn’s Instagram Live this coming Tuesday, December 8, 2pm Pacific Time. You can get the details here. Hope to see you there!

Here’s to … Read more »
