Summer is my mega-writing time. I have a little over two months off, and am now at the half-way point. I’ve gone from 15,000 words on Any Wicked Thing to 45,000 in a month, so I’m half-finished with both the book and the vacation. It has helped that it’s rained practically every single day here in Maine—I’ve not been tempted to leave the house very often.

I’ll be taking a break from blogging for a few weeks (but I’m on Twitter, so please follow me, not that I say much there). Contest!To get you to come back on August 8, I’m offering a brand new bright and shiny copy of Mary Jo Putney’s Loving a Lost Lord. My Kensington editor sent me a ‘Kensington Care Package’ with a slew of Kensington titles to welcome me. There were 17 books!!! Needless to say, I was excited.They were all new to me, too, except for MJP’s book, which I had already purchased and read. So the extra copy will go to one random commenter on this post, with a couple of other writerly goodies.
Here’s my question: If you were making up a care package for a writer, what items would you include in it? Any particular books? Comfort items? All serious and silly answers welcome.
See you in August!
