Fun in the sun with Bruce Stuart...plus a book giveaway

We're pleased to have Bruce Stuart here today to talk about his favorite season. Thanks to TLC Book Tours, we have a copy of his novel, The Lightening Round, for a lucky US reader.

Bruce Stuart has spent several New Year’s Eves making resolutions to lose weight and get into shape. Bruce is an author of several books and created the popular serial fiction website, SerialTeller.com, which featured his story THE LIGHTENING ROUND about Hannah More, a thirty-nine year-old single mom who joins a satirical gym called The Ultimate Level. This off-the-wall place actually groups all of its members based on their fitness levels and limits their interactions both inside and outside of the gym. In the novel adopted from Bruce’s serial, THE LIGHTENING ROUND, Hannah reluctantly joins The Ultimate Level and falls in love with a member on another level triggering a series of over the top antics as she attempts to navigate the gym while scheming to end up with the man of her dreams. 

Visit Bruce at Goodreads.

The Lightening Round is currently 99 cents for Kindle.

Summer has always been my favorite season.

What’s so special about summer? It’s usually the hottest season. It’s when school is out and workdays open up into sunshine. It’s when the weather tugs at our shirt sleeves to get outside and enjoy the warmth on our faces. Everything feels possible in the summer whether it is taking a long drive down the coast in a convertible with the top down or even finding the romantic adventure of a lifetime.

How many of us met our first real love during summer vacation? And how many of us long to return to that simpler time when our biggest cares were wondering how long that amazing feeling was going to last?

What other season has a holiday like the Fourth of July? It may be America’s Independence Day, but it also can be the chance to recognize how much you love that special someone you are holding in your arms while the pitch black sky suddenly ignites into streamers of light.

Summer has an unbeatable edge because of its laid-back ease. No need for heavy sweaters, long pants, and gloves. Nope. This season lets you be yourself. You can be casual and free while you wear t-shirts, shorts, and tennis shoes.

Thanks to Bruce for visiting with us and to TLC Book Tours for arranging this post and sharing his book with our readers.
