The Strangled Queen (The Accursed Kings) by Maurice Druon.
And, voila! My TBR Pile. What’s in the cube beneath the books? More books!
What am I working on? Oooh, it’s a goodie! Think woman on the mend from a nasty divorce travels to the Scottish Highlands where she meets a smokin’ hot, kilt wearin’ 300 year old Scottish ghost.
I’ve always wanted a bare-chested kilt-wearing Scot on one of my book covers. I’ll post an excerpt soon.
As you know this past week was a scorcher for us. The heat dried up the grass real fast and fire season has already begun. Prayers for the folks down in Southern California who are suffering. We’ve had some fires here but not nearly as bad. And my sympathy to all of you in the Midwest where winter must feel like it will never end. Most of my husband’s family lives in Minnesota while a good portion of my family is back in Iowa and Nebraska. I hope the farmers can plant this year, especially after last year’s drought.
I meant to post this photo earlier in the spring– unfortunately the blossoms are done now. I brought this lilac from Iowa.
Random interesting stuff:
The Fistula Foundation has an amazing Mother’s Day Fundraiser going on right now. The Fistula Foundation is the most worthy charity ever. The money goes to help women, not to pay telemarketers to harass you at suppertime.
Are you a migraine sufferer? I am. I come from a long line of migraine sufferers. I’ve always insisted there’s a huge genetic component– vindication at last! From NPR: A Sleep Gene Has A Surprising Role In Migraines.
And this from my dad– you may have to watch it a couple times. Well, it’ll keep playing over and over regardless of whether or not you’re watching.
