Snippet from Finding Home

Buy on Dreamspinner Press
Barnes and Noble
Island House came out earlier this week, and I've been having a blast visiting blogs talking about it. Right now you can enter to win a free copy on Andrew Q. Gordon's blog.

Be sure to check out the posts if missed my release party over on the Dreamspinner Press blog. I shared snippets from the book and the inspiration behind some of my favorite parts of the novel. Don't fret if you missed the giveaways--there will be more chances to win goodies like the metal anchor bookmarks and the ceramic oil warmers from the prize packages on Twitter throughout the month.

I'm hard at work on the second book in the Dropping Anchor series, Finding Home. Here's a sneak peek at some of the dialogue from  today's writing session:

Letting Clare choose where they ate would mean something vegetarian, or worse, vegan.
“Can we stop for something on the way? You know she's not going to let us eat anywhere with actual food,” Ian pleaded.
“The last time I did that she smelled the french fries the second she got in the car. I ended up on a three-day juice cleanse,” Niall said with a shudder that told Ian he wasn't exaggerating.
“I did a juice cleanse once,” he offered.
“A two-day bender where all you did was drink pineapple juice with rum is not a juice cleanse,” Niall retorted.
“Lost six pounds,” Ian continued, ignoring the interruption.
“Probably more from dehydration from all the sex than because of the juice,” Niall deadpanned.
Ian considered it, then nodded. College spring break weeks were a guaranteed good time on Tortola. “Possibly.”
--Finding Home, due out summer 2014

On the topic of beverages, apparently you can get Butterbeer at Starbucks! It's pretty chilly here in Indianapolis today, so maybe I'll treat myself to a magical hot drink this afternoon.
