If August turns out to be as beautiful as July, this will be the best summer (weather wise) we've experienced in many years!!
Some of my gardens,
a hanging plant from my daughter.
I'm enjoying my time writing outside within eye sight of my blooming gardens. And ~ I felt a sense of exhilaration when I passed the halfway point of my WIP.
Now I have a Huge Surprise>
C. Lee McKenzie's
Sign of the Green Dragon
Coming: August 3rd.
Available for Pre-Order
Blurb: A crumbling map from 1859, found clutched in the bony grip of the long dead, sends three young boys on a dangerous adventure where an unsolved murder, a modern crime, some lost ancestors and ancient Chinese dragons reveal the true meaning of treasure.
Author bio: I love to write for young readers. Sign of the Green Dragon is my third Middle Grade novel. Alligators Overhead and the sequel, The Great Time Lock Disaster were my first two. I’m proud to be a hybrid author with three Indie books out along with four traditionally published young adult novels: Sliding on the Edge, The Princess of Las Pulgas, Double Negative and Sudden Secrets. It’s fun to know both sides of this writing business.
When I’m not writing I’m thinking about it or scratching my head over how all of this started.
The Green Dragon is available for Pre-Order:

Congratulations to Lee!ReplyDelete
Glad you've hit the halfway point.
Our summer was doing good until we hit near a hundred all this week.
I'll bet people are tired of dragons by now.Delete
Beautiful garden! And how great that you've reached the halfway point of another story. Congrats!!ReplyDelete
Hi Julie! Thanks for the congrats.Delete
Beautiful flowers, Cathrina! I'm such a sucker for gardens. I could play in the all day. Thanks for letting me share the dragons here today.ReplyDelete
Congrats on your upcoming release, Lee!!! I already bought it!!! Can't wait to read it.Delete
How nice to be able to write outside near your gorgeous garden! Congrats on hitting the halfway point of your WIP. Woohoo! Hoping Aug is as lovely for you as July, and wishing Lee huge success with her new new book!ReplyDelete
I'm hoping August brings on the tomatoes. I hover over them every morning with encouragement! Thanks, Lexa.Delete
The pictures are beautiful. Glad you're enjoying the summer. I love the warm weather. Have a great week.ReplyDelete
This heat is hard sometimes, but necessary. Here's to Friday.Delete
Have a nice weekend, Deanie.Delete
Wow, your gardens are so pretty! And many congrats on finally passing the halfway point of your WIP. That's awesome!ReplyDelete
Your flowers are beautiful! It's been a bit humid and hot to write outside here, but I'm sure that will change soon. Can't wait to read C.Lee's book. It sounds perfect.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much. Hope you enjoy the story.Delete
Garden looks great! Love Lee's book too! :)ReplyDelete
What beautiful flowers!!! I think I could find plenty of inspiration while surrounded by all that. Do bees come around, though? I can't sit outside now without wasps swarming me. My husband says my fear of them is completely unjustified--I act like they could kill me when all they'd do is just sting me!ReplyDelete
