Guess What Iím Doing this Summer! | Kathy Lyons / Jade Lee
July 6, 2017
How did it get to be summer already? Part of my brain is still wondering if I
got everyone Christmas presents like I intended. But the rest of me is fully
enjoying tank tops and stretchy shorts. Iím not as thin as I used to be, but
fortunately, my fashion sense has completely disappeared. Instead of being
shamed by the way I look in shorts and a thin tee, I think about how comfortable
I feel and donít look at the lumpy cellulite in my thighs.
So now that weíre all cringing from that mental picture, how about I distract
you with a question? Guess what my favorite thing to do in summer is.
Cook out! Or maybe barbeque. Anything that involves meat and eating
outdoors in the sunshine!
Rollerblading. If itís too hot to walk on pavement, just pull out the
in-line skates and let the hot breeze push you along. If your wheels melt to the
pavement, well, it was time to buy new ones anyway, right?
Basement movie nights. Itís cool and dark down there. Perfect time to
watch The Accountant or Logan. Who doesnít love
tortured hotties in cool, dark places?
Ice Cream. Yeah, Iím lactose intolerant. What of it? Ice cream is the
best when itís hot outside. Or cold outside. Or any time.
Answer: D Ė Those of you who know me well, know I donít cook. I once went
on a raw food diet out of laziness. So anything with the word ďcookĒ in it,
isnít for me. That cuts out answer I do love rollerblading and Iíve been known
to do it in very hot temperatures, but itís hard and sweaty work. So, I enjoy it
but itís not my favorite summer activity. Weíre getting closer with answer C,
basement movies. I do love movie night, and The Accountant and Logan were two great movies I saw just this past weekend.
But nothing compares to my love of ice cream. Yes, I am indeed lactose
intolerant, but OMG, eating ice cream at the local parlor is my all time beloved
summer activity. And thatís answer D!
Now hereís a trick question. What sport am I going to be watching this summer?
Hint: it has to do with my next series for Entangled Publishing.
Surfing. Hot guys, water, the potential for sharks. What could be
Bear baitingóhistorical of course because we donít do this anymore.
But you know about my grizzly bears, right? FOR THE BEARíS EYES ONLY is up for a PRISM award! Where else
am I going to see bears in action except on some old timey youtube?
Racquetball. On the court, off the court, I love it. Itís my favorite
Baseball. My hubby is a huge fan of the Tigers and we watch every
game. Why? Because Iím launching a baseball trilogy next year. So if I am forced
to watch guys with tight pants whack at a baseball, then who am I to argue?
Answer: D Ė I do enjoy guys in tight Speedos, but I competed in
springboard diving, so Iím more likely to watch that for my wet hottie fix.
Cliff diving has good scenery too! As far as Iím aware, bear baiting is not on
youtube, and Iím not sure I could stomach it even if it was. I am continuing my
grizzly bear shifter series (yeah!) so be sure to pick up the first three books before the next set comes out! I do love
racquetball, but I like playing more than I like watching. And sadly, I havenít
yet sold a sports romance series with racquetball in it.
Maybe next year! So the last choice is the right one: baseball! Iím writing a
trilogy about a made up baseball team in Indianapolis. Which means I have to
figure out what phrase like ďlate season call upĒ and ďscrewballĒ really mean.
But donít worry, Iíll explain all about it next year closer to release.
So now itís your turn. Tell me what youíll be doing this summer and one lucky
commenter will get an e-copy of either of my two PRISM finalists. FOR THE BEARíS EYES ONLY is
about grizzly bear shifters. Roar! And ďRock HardĒ (part of the
Stone Men series) is about a regency gentleman trapped in a statue until someone
special brings him to life. Both are up for PRISM awards and I couldnít be more
Life as Alan Carman knew it is over. After he was captured and tortured by a
mysterious enemy, the lawyer's latent grizzly-shifter DNA was triggered. The old
Alan is gone, and in his place is a terrifying vicious beast that lives and
breathes for revenge. He will track down the person who did this to him-and
it'll be the last thing he ever does.
Tonya Kappes refuses to let Alan run headlong to his death. A bear-shifting
deputy-and the Gladwin Clan's beta-Tonya faces Alan with one weapon: the love
that's lingered between them since they were kids. But the idealistic man she
knew has changed...into something raw, primal, and unbelievably sexy, igniting
every lustful cell in her body. And, if Alan can't learn to love the beast
inside himself, maybe he can love the animal in her . . .
