I love being on this side of the longest day of the year. Knowing that while the days are warmer and longer, there are longer, warmer, better days to come. I’ve long admired those who manage to be organized enough to celebrate the actual solstice. For me it seemed something was always getting in the way—whether it was one of the kid’s soccer games (in earlier years), a deadline at work or simply being too exhausted from daily life to get out and celebrate.
In the book I’m working on right now my main character and her two closest friends are celebrating the solstice on a rooftop patio in Seattle. I’m making every detail perfect, from the beautiful teak furniture, to the long gas fireplace, to the plate of samosas with spicy mango chutney that’s being served with delicious cocktails.
See, what I can’t organize in real life, I get to have in my fiction!
And speaking of my fiction, one of my books, the first in the Frost Family & Friends series, What Child Is This is currently available FREE for Kobo and Nook readers. If this is you, please download now and tell all your friends.
If you’re a Kindle reader, please report the lower price to Amazon—and hopefully they’ll match the price soon. (You can report the lower price right on the Kindle book page, under Product Description.)
Hopefully they’ll match the free price soon.
Finally, tell me how you plan to celebrate the Solstice. Or, how you’d like to celebrate if you had the time and energy. We’ll choose one name at random to receive the next 3 books in the Frost Family & Friends collection: Home For Christmas, by Roxy Boroughs, The Holly & The Ivy, by Brenda M. Collins and More Than A Feeling, by yours truly.
- Happy Solstice!
