my summer garden
Hey Guys! Just wanted to check in and say what's new? Hope you're having a wonderful summer! We are having a La Nina year here in the Pacific Northwest, which means a mild winter and a long, hot summer - yay!! We SO deserve it after the last two crappy summers we've had!! So I've been enjoying lots of sunshine and warm weather and as you can see, the flowers are happy too. :-).
Just got back about a week ago from our annual beach trip - 4 moms and 6 kids in the same house for a week - So. Much. Fun. This was our 15th year - we started when our kids were barely 3 years old - so lots of fond memories with this trip every year. Here's a picture from the beach. I'm pretty sure the moms boogie-boarded more than the kids!
I've been taking a break from writing for the summer but I'm just about to start writing book 4 of The Faerie Ring series, which is entitled THE FAERIE QUEEN. A writer friend of mine, Amy Dominy, blogged weekly about her process while writing her last book and I really enjoyed reading about the ups and downs from another writer's perspective - so I might try something like that with this book....we'll see - stay tuned!
The cover for THE FAERIE QUEEN is finished and I have to say - I LOVE it! It's exactly what I was hoping to capture to reflect the storyline. Here's the teaser cover until the real cover is revealed. I can't wait to share it with you guys - probably in December or January. Right now I believe the book is going to come out in Fall 2014.
Anyway, that's about it from here. Hope you're all doing great and enjoying the last few weeks of summer!
