Time has really become unpredictable lately, you know?
Thursday: I need to write up my blog post for Saturday.
Friday: Oh, no, I've got to write up my blog post for tomorrow.
Sunday: Oh, no.
So, a late post better be a great post, amiright?
(I love this cover. It's beachy.)
For the first time, I actually took a research trip instead of relying on books and videos and hazy memories of that one time I visited Miami and took a boat tour of the gator's natural habitat. In the first book, you're going to see Little Havana (did I call it by the right name in the book? This is the stuff that will wake a writer up in the middle of the night, but only after the book is published, not before when she could actually fix it) and Domino Park. I took that boat tour of Millionaire Row and it's in the book. There are a few surprises that are figments of my imagination (can you guess?) and plenty more to come! Here are some actual, real live photos I took while burning and melting at the same time because I'm actually meant more for snowy cabins and fireplaces than beaches but I had such a good time.
I hope you'll pick up A Soldier Saved. This quick visit to Miami was my last, for-fun-and-adventure trip and right now, that's such a sweet memory.
