Look, everyone. It’s COVID-19. You’re stuck in isolation or self-quarantine, and you need something to do. You need new books to read.
And most of all, you need HOPE.
Hope that this pandemic will end. Hope that you will survive, that your life as you know it will continue.
An Unexpected Light is exactly the course.
From the website:
An Unexpected Light is a 6-month online speculative fiction course designed to respond to what often feels like a growing and inescapable sense of hopelessness and despair within individuals and communities. The goal of this course is to offer many invitations towards possibility, towards life. Combining narrative therapy practices with guided writing and curated reading selections, we will search for the unexpected light together.
It’s a smaller model than what Alex rides in Betting on Love (hers is a 2013 Ninja Z1000, which is much, much bigger). It’s a 2010 Ninja 250r, just the right size for learning. This spring I took my motorcycle safety course from Too Cool Motorcycle School, and I got my motorcycle license in June. A couple of weeks ago, I found the bike on an online ad, and went to take a look. I loved it, and it’s the perfect size.
I will not be spending quite as much time writing during what remains of this summer, as I’m going to try to get a lot of riding in before the snow falls (or falls again, as we’ve already had one light skiff of snow here… pretty nutty for August). But if you’re looking for something to read in the meantime, The London Game was just released, and coming in January, my latest book from Bold Strokes Books, titled Midnight at the Orpheus, will be released. 🙂
So, I’ll be around a bit, but more than likely, I’ll be riding.
This year, I am participating again in the Lesbian Fiction Appreciation Event, hosted and organized by the excellent KT Grant. It starts on January 11th, and goes until the 31st. (My post will be on January 15th, in case you’re wondering.) Click on the image below for more information on the event, and join us!
From now until New Year’s Eve, grab a copy of my Le Chat Rouge novella, THE CHRISTMAS GAME, over at All Romance eBooks!
Alone in London on business just before Christmas, Marc Perron meets an intriguing young woman working at a bookshop. A light flirtation seems to lead nowhere, but the night before he returns to Paris, she knocks on his hotel room door.
Madelaine’s taking a risk, but no one’s ever looked at her the way Marc does, and she’s not about to pass up a chance to get to know him better. When he suggests a game of wagers, she can’t resist challenging him. And herself.
Their matchup is a fiery one and each wager tops the last, the sexual heat between them crackling. Neither want to lose the game, but Madelaine fears she might be losing her heart as well.
This novella is a part of the Le Chat Rouge series, but can be read as a stand-alone story.
