What are you currently reading?
Erinn Wolf needs to reinvent herself. A once celebrated playwright turned photographer, she's almost broke, a little lonely, and tired of her sister's constant worry. When a job on a reality TV show falls into her lap, she's thrilled to be making a paycheck--and when a hot Italian actor named Massimo rents her guesthouse, she's certain her life is getting a romantic subplot. But with the director, brash, gorgeous young Jude, dogging her every step, she can't help but look at herself through his lens--and wonder if she's been reading the wrong script all along. . .
I'm reading this one for the author's virtual book tour. My review will appear on April 30. I'm loving this one, though I wasn't so sure about it in the beginning.
What did you recently finish reading?
Officer Gordon Butler is called to the scene of a body washed up on the beach, a new police chief makes changes, a rapist attacks two women, Ryan and Barbara Strickland’s baby is born, but he faces an even bigger test, and Detectives Milligan and Zachary follow a twisted path of clues to find a killer.
I've read this series from the very beginning, so I knew I would enjoy this one. I like the addition of the new police chief and the switching around of personnel that comes as a result. I have to wonder, however, what is in store for Ryan Strickland's future with the Rocky Bluff P.D. after this. My review of this book will appear on Monday.

Anyone can publish a book and become an “author,” but if you want to become a successful author with a profitable publishing career, you need a clear, step-by-step guide to help you develop book ideas that sell. In The Author Training Manual, expert editor and book coach Nina Amir reveals the exact process successful authors have used to create business plans and proposals for their books and teaches you how to view your ideas through the eyes of acquisition editors and literary agents.
Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, plan to traditionally publish or self-publish, The Author Training Manual provides you with the tools you need to achieve your goals and become the author publishers and readers want. Inside you’ll find concrete steps, evaluations, sample business plans, in-depth training activities, editor and agent commentaries, and much more – all designed to help you stand out, from the slush pile to the shelf.
I definitely don't read enough writing craft or publishing books, so I'm working on changing that this year. My review of this one is also coming up on Monday. Whoops--double-booked.
