Yes, that's me in a hardhat on top of a beautiful 36 story condominium with our son who is building this absolutely gorgeous luxury condominium on Oahu. (I'm the short one in the picture, obviously...and now you know why I refer to myself as the family dwarf even though I'm 5'6" -- even the grandkids are all going to be taller than me!)
Anyway, the spouse and I have just returned from two weeks in Hawaii with our son while his wife and the kids were away for ten days. I went over there to be the mom and cook, and Doug, my husband, went to take pictures--and because I didn't want to go without him.
'll be sharing some of his pictures here, but this day climbing to the top of a VERY TALL BUILDING was an amazing experience. We took the elevator most of the way up, walked a DOWN all 36 floors. The view from the top was amazing, but looking down was a rush, too. We were 400 feet up in this shot at the top of the page.
Here's a picture Doug took of Jon's building at sunrise one morning--I keep remembering our son building things with his Erector Set when he was a kid, but never imagined this! It's an absolutely beautiful structure and should have its first residents moving in next month. For parents, this was probably the coolest "show and tell" ever!
It was a busy two weeks, cooking for the men (I felt so frickin' TRADITIONAL!) and taking care of one bunny, two cats and two dogs. And yes, it did get a bit insane
However, I did get back on track with DARK TERROR while we were three. I love the characters and the story, but I've also rewritten parts of it numerous times as new things come to me. I used to channel my books in great lumps of information, but this one is getting doled out in bits and pieces. It is, however, more than halfway finished in spite of all my mishaps! It was wonderful sitting at the kitchen table in Hawaii with the windows all around looking out on jungle. Just a beautiful setting!
If you follow me on Facebook, you might have seen the new cover for HUNGER, the third and final anthology with my last Feral Passions story, DANGEROUS PASSIONS. It's the last one in the three book series, with Trak and Evan's stories, and it will release first as an ebook in CLAIMED BY THE MATE VOL 3 in January, and then in the print anthology HUNGER, in May 2017.
I'm going to miss my guys from Feral Passions, but one of these days I might actually return to their world. It's hard to say, because I've got so many projects on my "to do" list, and I really want to start finishing things for a change.
I've started getting rights back on some of my Kensington titles, and want to release them asap...after I finish the current book!
Click on the cover and it will take you to Joey's page with info about the story, buy links, and a link to a first chapter excerpt. I can guarantee a good read. I'm really looking forward to this one myself!
I hope you're well, that the weather has settled down wherever you live, and that you're actually finding time for some reading. SO many good books out there, and I want to read them all!
Best to you,
