Does the changing season change your personality or have an effect on your lifestyle?
As the season changes, I believe our outlook does too. With Spring in the air and the coming of Summer, we tend to have a cheerier mood. Maybe it has something to do with all the sunshine and Vitamin D we’re getting.
By the same token, with Spring in the air and the coming of Summer I begin to remember how hectic my life gets this time of year. The days may be longer, but there still doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day to get everything done.
I’ve only blogged in late Fall and Winter so there was time to visit all the wonderful blogs I follow and explore new ones. Summer is approaching and my
time is beginning to be stretched thin. It hadn’t registered with me that I’d have less time to blog. So if I don’t visit your blog everyday as I had been, it’s not that I don’t enjoy visiting anymore. It’s must my time in blogdom has been shorten for awhile and hopefully I can play catch up a couple days a week.
I have some great authors lined up to guest blog in the coming days so please drop by to see what they have to share.

Most of you know what comes next. Yep, I’ve got a new giveaway to announce. “Alex Cross's TRIAL” (ISBN: 9780446561808) by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo. This is a 416 page paperback. Here’s a brief synopsis:
Separated by time: From his grandmother, Alex Cross has heard the story of his great uncle Abraham and his struggles for survival in the era of the Ku Klux Klan. Now, Alex passes the family tale along to his own children in a novel he's written--a novel called Trial.
Connected by blood: As a lawyer in turn-of-the-century Washington D.C., Ben Corbett represents the toughest cases. Fighting against oppression and racism, he risks his family and his life in the process. When President Roosevelt asks Ben to return to his home town to investigate rumors of the resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan there, he cannot refuse.
United by bravery: When he arrives in Eudora, Mississippi, Ben meets the wise Abraham Cross and his beautiful granddaughter, Moody. Ben enlists their help, and the two Crosses introduce him to the hidden side of the idyllic Southern town. Lynchings have become commonplace and residents of the town's black quarter live in constant fear. Ben aims to break the reign of terror--but the truth of who is really behind it could break his heart. Written in the fearless voice of Detective Alex Cross, Alex Cross's Trial is a gripping story of murder, love, and, above all, bravery.
Thanks to Valerie and the folks at Hachette Book Group, I have 3 copies of “Alex Cross’s Trial” to giveaway. To enter the contest, send me an e-mail with “Win Trial” in the subject line and include your name and address in the body of the e-mail.
