Stay-cation, Presents-style by Caitlin Crews

It is very hot and I would much prefer to be on vacation right now. It is August, after all. Aren't people supposed to be on vacation in August?

The best thing about writing Presents is that it's kind of like getting to take a great vacation to glamorous places every day. I don't have to accept the fact that I'm sitting in my office staring at my wall-- I could be anywhere in the world! Places I've been and places I've only dreamed of going. It's the ultimate stay-cation!

Here are some of the places I got to visit in my first two Presents, PURE PRINCESS, BARTERED BRIDE and MAJESTY,MISTRESS... MISSING HEIR--both due out next year, as well as the new manuscript I'm working on:

Hôtel Negresco, Promenade des Anglais, Nice

Belgravia, London, England

San Ysidro Ranch, Santa Barbara, California

Paris, France

York, England

Villefranche sur Mer, Cap Ferrat & Beaulieu, the Côte d'Azur, France

Los Angeles from the Hollywood Hills, California

Where would you go if you could go anywhere? Can your favorite Presents take you there?

I would love to go to Scotland and visit the castles. I have read many many books where they center around haunted Scottish castles, I love those.

I would love to go back to Hawaii.
Presents can take me almost anywhere I want to go.

I'd like to visit Greece, particularly Crete, as I love its history.

Venice, always Venice! Or the rest
of Italy!

Or maybe Hawaii! Or maybe Scotland!
Or maybe Australia!

Or maybe .....................!

It's funny for me to read about people who long to visit Scotland - because I live in Scotland, so I want to go somewhere else! I'd like to go back to Paris, and maybe see Vienna.

I feel the same way about people wanting to visit Las Vegas, because I live in Vegas. I'd just like to go somewhere that was green since what I usually see around here is ....cactus. lol
