It's a rainy weekend, and I am using bad weather as a great excuse to take care of a few things around the house. Besides, John is in NY visiting his daughter
in the hospital, so there's no one to care if I listen to Joss Stone and Green Day's CDs on the stereo all day long. That's one thing John and I do not see eye-to-eye on: music. He loves do-wop and the 60s, while my tastes span from the mid-70s forward. And if that's all we can't agree on . . . well, lucky us.
Thanks to a recent discussion at The Romance Book Club
, I ran across a new author's website today: Mary Beth Bass
. Her debut novel is called FOLLOW ME
, and I gather it's along the lines of "Somewhere In Time" -- one of my favorite movies. (In fact, John and I chose its theme song, "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini" as our first dance song at our wedding. It's a beautiful piece of music, very romantic.) Anyway, I hadn't heard of Mary Beth's book, but her website bio
made me smile, and prompted me to place my order for FOLLOW ME this morning.
In other news, the May/June issue of ROMANCING THE MIDDLE AGES
just went out. It features an article on the Knights Templar, by my friend Mary Reed McCall (whose new book, BEYOND TEMPTATION
is out now), an interview with debut medieval romance author Jessica Trapp (whose first title, MASTER OF PLEASURE
, is also on sale now), as well as the usual list of new medieval romance releases. If you're not a subscriber to this free newsletter, you can sign up right here
