Independent software developer Kylie Grant is on top of her game in the world of IT. She has loyal clients, a good reputation, and a prestigious membership in technology giant Afire Industries’ small business accelerator. Things are going well until she stumbles across an innocuous issue with the lighting in the building where she rents space. When she digs into the problem, she discovers something unexpected—a hack.

The incursion doesn’t affect her, but Kylie leaves enough clues to fix the problem. That earns her a visit from Luke McAllister, Afire’s chief security officer. Luke is handsome and rugged and everything that Kylie likes in a man, but she soon finds that he is blaming her for the security breach. Before long, the two are on a collision course, but also secretly looking at more than each other’s digital footprints.

When a fluke accident sends Kylie to the emergency room, Luke fears that the beautiful developer is in danger beyond the online world. Little does he know that she is also hiding a secret that threatens to jeopardize their now sizzling relationship. Can Kylie fix Afire’s problems without falling victim to the hacker? And can Luke learn to trust her and keep her safe before their enemy strikes again?

What Happened to Keeping It Simple, Stupid? (KISS)

Am I the only one who hates the new style of websites?  All flash, lots of distraction, and endless scrolling?  A little vent here… I can read.  Not everything needs to be in pictures.  And continuous scrolling brings out the obsessive/compulsive side of me.  I want to get to the bottom of the page.  I NEED to get to the bottom.  What happened to nice, clean websites with sub-pages where everything is laid out logically? Enough with the fancy transitions and endless linking.  ENOUGH!!!

Can you tell I’m thinking of updating my website?  Can you tell I’m frustrated????

Give me a couple of weeks.  I’ll figure it out.  Sigh…  I JUST WANNA WRITE.

Okay, end of vent.  Back to your regular programming.

Tis The Season

for shopping, wrapping presents, putting up lights, singing carols, drinking cocoa, and so much more.  It’s hard to keep writing and blogging when things get so busy, but I’m making progress.  I’m starting to think of finishing my current work-in-progress as a Christmas present to myself.  That would be joyous, if I can make it happen.  What about you?  Do you sneak in a present for yourself this time of year?  What’s your self-indulgent treat?

Spring Cleaning

I’ve been busy with spring cleaning, which is always a chore. Still, it’s nice to brush the dust off things and see reminders of the past.  One of the items on my chore list has been going through my book collection.  As you can imagine, I have drawers filled with books.  Shelves are stacked high with paperbacks. I have boxes of books, waiting to be read.  I’m trying to weed through these and find a better organization system.  I’ve received a lot of books at conferences, and then there are always the stacks of books I get to judge for the RITA contest every year. Those books are fun to investigate, but they aren’t the ones with which I have a connection.

I have books that I will keep forever, no matter what fantastic technology comes along.  I have the old Linda Howard Silhouette books.  (Yes, all of them.) I have a lot of Sandra Brown’s early works.  I found an Anne Stuart thriller that I remember reading on vacation. My friend asked to read it, and I warned her it was dark, but she gobbled it up, too. There’s the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, all in paperback (except the last two, which I bought in ebook form because I couldn’t wait for the paperbacks.  Who started that stupid trend?)  I have Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series (same for that one.)  Dare I go on?

The point is, it’s very hard for me as a reader to try to downsize.  I get pulled into back cover blurbs. I hold onto unread books, because I might have liked something the author wrote before. I want to keep weak books by my favorite authors, just because.  Do you see my problem?

How have you handled the switch to digital?  Or have you even tried?  I’m looking for pointers to try to get me through this project, or I’m going to end up with even more books than I started with!  🙂
