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 »

Part of me wonders–do I post this sort of trivial list when the world is on the fire?–because I don’t want anyone to think I am not scared spitless about the state of things right now. Especially since I’ve been reading a lot of WW1 history lately and the parallels are like blinking billboards with spotlights. But perhaps five things that touch the normal, that place we can all agree upon, are also necessary. The more we can reach out and all find common ground, maybe we can see our differences without the harsh rhetoric.

Five Things for Friday

It’s inevitable, but I am going to repeat myself. I’ve tried hard not to. I even maintain a list–but the list only works if you update it, which I did last week and discovered I have repeated myself. The Expanse! The Vanished Days! With over 220 Things and counting, it is going to happen.

But happily as much as I keep thinking I’ll run out eventually

, and I always seem to find more. Let’s take a look at this week’s list.

But for the record, I don’t think updates should count. Do you remember the Thing I … 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 »

So I should probably warn you, this week’s list might break your TBR. There you are warned. On the good side there is no violence, bad language

http://ateamresource.de/.well-known/pharmacy/index.html%3Fp=81.html

, or strobe lights in the paragraphs ahead. Just books, some ideas to make your life easier, an awesome salad and a GIVEAWAY.

Have a great 4th of July weekend. And to those of you outside the US, have a great weekend.

First off, I would like to say a huge Happy Birthday to my mother. She turns 85 today. And I love her fiercely. She is my rock, my champion, and my strength.

I could go on and on about her, but I’ve got a great list today and we have a lot to cover. So…

I got one of those emails the other day—an author you’ve read has a new book up for preorder. I sort of glanced at it, but then I saw who.
Susanna Kearsley. I had that button clicked in nothing flat.

You all know … Read more »

Five Things for Friday

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 »
