  • 5 Reasons to participate in an anthology/Box set August 20, 2014

  • Gender Reveal parties July 25, 2014
    I’m hearing about this new trend in the baby world: the gender reveal party. What happens is the doctor or sonogram tech writes the gender in a sealed envelope which is then delivered to a baker. The baker then bakes either a pink or blue cake with neutral frosting. Then a reveal party is hostedRead 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.
