I spent the last week in New York City. For a girl from the south and mostly small to mid size towns, NYC seemed like another world at times. Atlanta and Jacksonville have sky scrapers, but Manhattan is simply stuffed with them. And people. My hotel was on Times Square and walking through that space, teaming with tourists and immigrants selling things to the tourists, put me in the mind of a busy spaceport. I guess that would make the buildings, wrapped in enormous flashing signs, the space ships docked alongside and discouraging hapless humans into the mosh.
Fortunately, I had good friends along to help me make my way through the crowds and out into the neighborhoods, some lovely, some desperately awful, all intriguing. the neighborhoods, not the friends. The friends are all lovely!
I was in NYC for the annual Romance Writers of America® national conference. I brought home a box of new paranormal and urban fantasy authors to try along with my copy of Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Hawk and Sienna’s story lived up to its billing, I’m happy to say. Devoured it on the plane ride home.
So, look for more book recommendations in the coming weeks! In the mean time, I’ve posted a few on my alter ego blog here.
I missed you all and will get back to checking on everyone’s blogs as soon as I crawl out from under the avalanche of work that was waiting on me when I got back.
