ROW80, Justine Dell's Book Launch and Giveaway! and Some Tolkien and Lewis News

Round of Words in 80 Days is approaching the end...

...of this round.

I've revamped my query four Out of the Water and sent out a few more letters. I've begun typing the draft for Fred and Lyne's story. But once again I feel as though I'm pushing through sand dunes - never moving quick enough to feel as though I've accomplished anything.

Meanwhile, it's celebration time: Justine Dell has released Recaptured Dreams!
Ten years, the Atlantic Ocean, and several rungs in society have kept Xavier Cain from having Sophia Montel. Now twenty-seven, he's spent his entire adult life building a fashion empire that could finally prove his worth to her family. When fate reunites him with Sophia at London's premiere fashion show, one problem lodges in Xavier's path: Sophia doesn't remember him.
The only obstacle that has kept Sophia from Xavier is a horrific car crash that erased her memory at seventeen. She's spent the last ten years fighting to reclaim a sliver of her past that her mother refuses to help her remember. When Sophia meets Xavier at the London show, however, all her fantasies come to life in one night of passion. Discovering he is the missing link, she is determined to find all the pieces to their love story and her memory.
Xavier wants forever. Sophia wants her memory. If they take this chance, they'll have to start over. How far are they willing to go get what they want? And when the past catches up to them, can they handle the truths it has hidden?

Don't forget, just by commenting you're entered into a draw for a copy of Recaptured Dreamsand for two TWO Recaptured Dreams bookmarks!

Finally, I recently discovered that the cupboard that inspired C. S. Lewis is on display at Wheaton College. Must. Go. To. Illinois.

Also, 21 September is Second Breakfast Day! Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of The Hobbit:
Check out the fun and games, and if you're in London (lucky you!) join in in person. If you can't visit there, you might head over to one of the fifteen places named after Tolkien (well, except for the crater on Mercury and the asteroid (if you know how to travel to those places, please tell me)). I'd love to visit the Plough and Harrow in Birmingham!

Which author's tracks would you trace?

I would love to track Madeleine L'Engle's tracks to get a sense of how she put together the Wrinkle in Time series.

And thanks for the heads up about Second Breakfast Day! Awesome!!

Queries...argh!! I am so rusty in that arena, but even when I was diving right into it I couldn't ever get my queries where I wanted them to be. ;)
Congratulations Justine! Gorgeous cover.

Thanks Deniz.

Awesome! Thanks! Can't wait to read it. I'll email you my email. I don't know why typing that made me giggle. It's too early and I'm too tired. That must be it.
