#BookBlogWriMo-Where I Blog

bookblogwrimo banner

Thanks to bookbumblings for hosting this awesome blog hop.  So, today’s post is about where I blog.

This is where I blog. It’s my desk in my office. I usually don’t set up shop anywhere else in the house to try and get any work done because we have dogs and cats. They tend to want my time when I try to work in other parts of the house. I have a great view to look out at when I need a little distraction from working on the blog or writing my novels.  Look forward to reading about your places to blog.

#IWSG: NaNo and BookBlogWriMo


Thanks to Alex for hosting this each month. Here is the complete list of participants.

Well, this month I’m doing NaNo and a month long blog hop called BookBlogWriMo. It has definitely been interesting to say the least. I’m juggling writing a new fantasy story on top of creating posts that will be posted every day. It’s fun though. I really like the topics we get to talk about during the blog hop.

I write fantasy stories but they are usually urban fantasy. For NaNo, I decided to attempt writing my first epic fantasy novel. It has been an eye opening experience. I love reading the genre and thought I could write it. It’s been kind of frustrating but I’m not throwing in the towel on it just yet. I plan to share updates about it and my other stuff on a more frequent basis. So check back for updates.

That’s it for this month’s IWSG post. Look forward to reading your comments. 🙂



Ember’s Secret by Catherine Peace Review

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.


Author: Catherine Peace

Series: Solstice Quartet Book 1

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Line: Give Me a Taste

Heat Level: 3 Flames

Coming Feb 3rd, 2015

Pre-Order Now!






Ember only wants two things out of life: to be reunited with her sisters, and to see people come back to her café. Catering to people she never sees again, she experiences a loneliness that can’t be filled. As one of the last Whanamaku—a descendant of the Maori bird-god Tane—she has to hold on to the secrets of her tribe. Family first.

Gourmet TV personality Austin Garten, host of the popular show Back Road Eats, needs more in his life than Breadbasket America grilling. He’s tired of the safe routes, the easy and dependable foods that the Network loves to display. When his RV breaks down in Wyoming, and he learns about Kai, a Maori restaurant outside of Casper, his interest is piqued. Once he meets the proprietor, he realizes he’s wants more than just her food. He wants her.

Ember isn’t too sure. The Solstice, the Maori New Year, is fast approaching, and with the heat in her kitchen ratcheting up, she knows she can’t keep her secret for long much longer. But will Austin be able to accept her? Or will her secret drive them apart?


 My Review:

Catherine is an awesome writer. I couldn’t put it down. I love the characters she has created. The plot is great. It has great twists and turns. It will keep the reader turning the page. Add it to your TBR list you won’t be disappointed. I look forward to reading more of Catherine’s books.


About the Author:

Catherine Peace has been telling stories for as long as she could remember. She often blames two things for her forays into speculative fiction—Syfy (when it was SciFi) channel Sundays with her dad and The Island of Dr. Moreau by HG Wells. She graduated in 2008 from Northern Kentucky University with a degree in English and is still chasing the dream of being super rich and famous, mostly so she can sit around in her PJs all day and write stories. When not being a slave to the people in her head, she’s a slave to two adorable dogs. Check out her site here.
