Wednesday Rambles – where I talk about blankets, books and coffee.


This is what I wish I’d been doing this week. Curled up under a blanket, with a steaming cup of coffee, reading the latest release that everybody is raving about. Instead, I’ve been busy writing, marketing and editing … oh yeah, and publishing a book! I’m really delighted with how well Halfway Hidden has been received, thanks to all of you for your support.

In other news, it’s been getting colder here. As I type on my laptop, I’m sitting on my sofa under a blanket, trying not to shiver. Rain is pouring down the big picture window, and all I can think is that my poor child is currently at a running competition. School isn’t for the fainthearted! On the plus side, it’s the perfect weather for doing nothing but reading and writing, and I’m going to use the excuse to get down to some serious work.

My to-be-read list is growing like topsy, and top of the list is the latest release from S. Walden, Better.

Better by S. Walden

Their relationship has been exposed, and now their lives are changed forever.
For Cadence Miller, the fast track to adulthood proves intimidating and frustrating. She’s a little girl lost—abandoned by her family and uncertain of her future. She doesn’t think she “fits” anywhere. She’s eighteen. She wants to be older. And the result is both comical and heartbreaking.

Mark Connelly will do anything to provide Cadence a stable, loving home—to be her protector. But he’s just as broken and lost, and his heart won’t let go of his past so easily. He knows he should share his secret with Cadence. He should trust that she’ll understand. But what if she doesn’t? What if their love doesn’t grow stronger?

What if it doesn’t get better?

Better is the follow up to S. Walden’s first book, Good, which I reviewed here.

I’m determined to carve out some time this weekend to read it, and I hope to be able to review it on next week’s “What to Read Wednesday.” In the meantime, I’m going to snuggle under my blanket and do some writing. I’ve nearly finished the book I’m working on, and hope to be able to share some news on it very soon!

Have a great week, everybody, and I’ll see you on Friday.
