  • Lynne’s Reading Corner November 25, 2014
    Before I was a writer, I was a reader. (Still am) I devour a book a week, minimum, usually more. This month, the book I’m most looking forward to reading is The Best Kind of Love by Kerri Carpenter. It’s a small-town contemporary I had the chance to read in draft form, and I can’t wait. It comesRead more...
  • Thanksgiving 2014 November 24, 2014
    This will be the first year not going to Miami. Instead we are heading up to New York City to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade. We have no plans for a turkey dinner on Thursday and Mr. Silver keeps joking that we’ll eat at the $0.99 pizza place. Um, no thank you, but myRead more...
  • Washington Loves Readers Luncheon October 25, 2014
    As you know (or not), I chaired the first ever Washington Loves Reader’s luncheon on October 11, 2014 along with author, Kimberly Kincaid. It basically meant I got to pick the lunch menu and assign seats. {Rubs hands mad with power} 40 authors showed up to wine and dine the readers, and well, when you getRead more...

Get it Together Tuesday: Beach vs City

It’s that time of year where people travel, either to families for the holidays or to exotic beach vacations. Despite growing up in Miami, I am not much of a beach girl. Sure I like the down time lying on the beach reading a book, but I get bored after a few hours. I love the energy and excitement of cities.

And yet in romance novels, cities are not as romantic as beaches. Maybe it’s something to do with all the skin you tend to show at the beach. The pace slows on the beach and the couple is free to focus on each other. Cities are fast. Cities have sensory overload. Hence the whole genre of URBAN fantasy. You don’t hear a lot about beach paranormal.

It also says a lot about a couple (maybe) for where they choose to honeymoon or vacation. There’s a reason the majority of honeymoons are relaxing beach destinations. It’s acceptable to laze about (in bed) all day. When you return there is no shame in saying, so we missed the white sand beach or the snorkel cruise. Whereas a honeymoon to Paris might garner a few giggles and winks when you admit you missed the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre in favor of other pastimes.

So hit me up. I wanna hear your ideal honeymoon and if you got to go on it, and if you had two weeks and an unlimited budget, where would you and your honey go now.

I went to Kauai on my honeymoon and it was lovely. Massages on teh beach, long walks and time snuggled in bed. If I had two weeks now, I’d go to Japan or Madrid, or India. There’s so much I haven’t seen of the world and I don’t want to waste time lazing on the beach!

Who Would you Do: Lollapalooza line-up

Perry Farrell is gonna announce the upcoming Lollapalooza line up soon. Since the original lolla had such impact on my life, let’s go with men on the tour, past, present or future.

1. Perry Farrell (the genius behind the event)

 

 

 

 

2. Anthony Kiedis

 

 

3. Dave Navarro

 

 

 

Anyone else? 36 year old me really doesn’t want any of them, but 18 year old me wanted all of them. I once saw Dave Navarro in Vegas and he definitely had an x-factor cool vibe going, but he is too short for me. Not sure we’d fit well in bed.
