Good Deeds Challenge Year 2, Week 20

Welcome to my second Year of Good Deeds, a challenge I set myself during April 2013. I decided to do at least one Good Deed a day for a whole year, now I an into my second year.

New Good DeedsDuring my week I’ll also being updating you on My Kindness Challenge which I’m also doing. I read about a new challenge to make the world a better place to live in. “Speak Kind Words, Receive Kind Echoes” see the inspiration on  The Kindness blog . During my learning process I’m donating money to charity for my slip-ups to make me work harder to achieve results. I earn no money from any of my book reviews, so having little to spare should focus my mind.

August 31st – A lovely sunny day for the last day of August, I went for a long walk and picked up litter along the way. Finished reading Dark Water by Jan Ruth. Am now reading Bend With The Wind by Suraya Dewing

Romancing September #RomancingSeptember – Day 2


Welcome to Day 2 of Romancing September Across The World Tour. Today our guest is Sonya Loveday. Catch up with more from Sonya in a few hours with the second part of our tour when Stephanie chats to her.

The Summer I Fell

Where is your home town?

I was born in Presque Isle, Maine. I lived there for 10 years until we moved to Chicopee, Massachusetts for a brief 15 month period. St. Cloud, Florida is where I’ve spent the majority of my life.

How long have you been writing romance?

The Summer I Fell is the first NA/Contemporary romance that I’ve written to date. My other books are considered paranormal romance.

What is your favourite sub-genre of romance?

Honestly I don’t have a ‘favorite’ because there are so many great sub-genre’s out there!

Tell us about Riley’s childhood

A good majority of Riley’s life it’s just her and her dad. It’s a good thing her dad is so awesome and an even better thing that she has the Six. (Group of six friends)

When does Riley declare her feelings for Ace?

You don’t have to wait too long into the book to see things happening between Riley and Ace. When you start reading The Summer I Fell, your plopped right in the middle of Riley’s life hours after graduation. The feelings and friendships are right there- as if you’d walked up and sat down beside her on the tailgate of her truck.

Give us a hint about why Riley’s plans had to change.

Her financial aide falls through and now it’s up to her to decide what she’s going to do about it.

Tell us about some of the life changes that happen to Riley.

She’s forced to face the reality that growing up is not all it’s cracked up to be. Friendships can survive over time and distance. There are just some things that are out of your hands and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it.

Tell us about the 6 rowdy boys Riley grew up with, are they now 6 sexy men?

Oh boy…the Six! These guys are awesome! The beginning of the book you get to ‘meet’ all the guys as they interact with Riley. They’re funny, sexy and just a little crazy.

Tell us what you are working on at the moment.

I’ve started the second book in The Six Series. Jared’s book will pick up when he leaves Alabama and will intertwine (partially) with Riley and Ace’s story.
