I am...

... listening to Christmas music.

I'm such a sap. ;)

In other news, my summer release from Thomas Nelson, Love Starts With Elle, is Romantic Times Book Club Reviews, TOP PICK for July. Well, one of three. I'm stoked. It's my first Top Pick.

All glory goes to Jesus! I really was worried about this book because I wrote it in third person which is not my favorite voice. But I learned a lot writing in first person, so I tried to add the close, personal voice to the third person narrative.

Here's the review:

Hauck is quickly making a name for herself as an insightful and thoughtful
author. It's great to catch up with characters from previous novels as well
as meet new ones. Elle is vulnerable, yet wise, and the romantic angle will
leave you sighing with delight.

Summary: Elle Garvey is eager to get married, so when her pastor boyfriend
of two months pops the question, she doesn't hesitate to accept. Although it
means moving to Dallas from South Carolina, Elle knows she can operate an
art gallery anywhere. But things don't exactly happen according to plan, and
when Elle meets Heath, her heart is tugged in different directions. Can she
trust God to show her the path to choose?

Hey, Rachel! Just checking to see what you're up to. I listen to Christmas music in the summer too. When it gets so hot I can't breathe here in Texas, I put on 'Let it Snow, let it snow, let it snow" and I cool off. My daughter has inherited this weird quirk, and she started listening to Christmas music in February this year and declared, "Mom, I beat you!" Have a great day, friend.
