  • Songs of Summer July 22, 2014
    It happens every summer. An ear worm hits the airwaves and it’s in your head all summer. Some I like, some I could live without. (Remember the summer of Gangam style). This summer, I’m humming along to Imagine Dragons, On Top of the World, Fancy by Iggy Azalea, and I could live without Happy byRead more...
  • Pokemon Tournament July 9, 2014
    This weekend my boys begged me to drive them to a local Pokemon tournament at a local comic/collector shop. Now, I knew what they didn’t; that the tournament would be a micro version of comic con or similar con. They’d never seen or been to anything like it. Nor had I, because my choice forRead more...
  • Help me! July 3, 2014
    Last Saturday I had the honor of being one of the featured authors at the Frederick Book festival put on by the awesome Vivi Dumas. This was only the third book fair I’ve attended as a signing author and I need to work out some kinks in the Lynne Silver booth. As I realized thisRead 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.
