I’m restarting my blog and I’ve joined with the authors of Romance Writers Weekly and for this weeks Blog Hop, we’ve been asked…”What is the one thing that immediately sends you back to childhood?”
There’s one sure thing that zooms me back to childhood and that’s music. Songs from the 60’s and 70’s. Songs I first heard on the radio because you know no Spotify in the twentieth century.
These flashes from the past are typically triggered by a song played during a commercial. Something from Creedence Clearwater Revival or when a few years back when “Gimme Some Lovin'” was used for a Wal-Mart ad had me thinking about riding in my mom’s two door Chevrolet with the windows down on the highway during a long ago summer outing.
It’s fun to think about moments from out past that stand out right? But it makes me wonder why can’t we remember all the moments of our lives. And why is it easier to recall a “special” moment versus something we wouldn’t have given a second thought to in the moment but in retrospect those could be the times that form who we become.
On the writing front I’m working on a story for the COOL OFF Anthology releasing August 3rd. It’s called LOVE AT FIRST AND 35TH and you can pre-order the anthology now: https://books2read.com/cooloffantho
Here’s the blurb:
Evie Nolan is surrounded by couples—engaged, newly married, baby expecting couples. As a party planner, it’s great for business—not so much for her personal life. Hook-ups, setups, and swiping right gives her hives, but the clock waits for no woman. If Evie wants a family of her own, and she does, she should have started last decade.
Sam Campbell is on the verge of a mid-life crisis and he’s only 35. His mom is on his case for grandchildren, his new boss wants his beard gone and the woman, who’s been hiding in the shadows, is the only one he wants to jump start his long-neglected sex life with and wants nothing to do with him.
They’ve been circling each other for years and now well-meaning friends plot against them and set them up for a long weekend at a lake cabin. When he decides he wants a taste of her, will she be able to resist his irritating and sneaky smirk that morphs into a seductive smile and those oh- so-wide shoulders? No, no, she can’t. But will her heart let her walk away when the fun and the weekend is over?
Be sure to let me know in comments what sends you back to childhood.
Next up on the Blog Hop is PG Forte — head over and find out what sends her back to childhood
Here’s her latest pre-order, FUNNEL OF LOVE:
Rocco DiLuca, owner of DiLuca’s Italian Bakery, is not a happy camper. He’s just found out that his baby sister is getting married—to his former best friend—and he’s not invited. But that’s not even the worst part. They’ve hired someone else to make their wedding cake!
Stephanie Sands thinks the Chamber of Commerce’s mentorship program is a great idea! She’s not ashamed to admit that her boutique bakery, Sugar Kink, isn’t quite making it. Yet. But the mentor she’s been assigned, Rocky D, isn’t just traditional, he’s positively medieval. It’s no wonder his sister wants nothing to do with him! Can the two bakers put aside their differences (and the insane attraction they feel for each other) and learn to work together? Or will their dreams fall as flat as a failed souffle?
