My Writing Cave – Rachel K. Burke
My favorite time to write is in the morning, usually in my bed with my laptop and a cup of coffee. Rainy days are the best for writing (or snowy days when I lived on the east coast). I have a hard time writing when it’s sunny out, because I feel like I should be out enjoying the weather. But if it’s cloudy or rainy, I can usually curl up for hours at a time and write.
I also like to have a favorite book or a book I’m currently reading nearby when I write. Sometimes when I get stuck on a scene or need to feel inspired, I like to take a break, pick up a book, and get my creativity flowing again.
When I’ve completed a novel, all it takes it to read a few pages of a new novel to feel inspired and start developing a new storyline again. And when that happens, it’s right back to my bed, with my coffee and laptop – all over again.
About Sound Bites: A Rock & Roll Love Story (2012)
Renee Evans has a knack for trouble. After walking in on her best friend and boyfriend in bed together, twenty-five year-old Renee flees sunny Los Angeles and her dream job as a music journalist and returns to her hometown of Boston – only to meet Dylan Cavallari, the mysterious, aspiring musician who lives in her apartment building. Dylan’s piercing gaze and womanizing demeanor make him exactly the type of guy that Renee should steer clear of – which is most likely the reason she falls for him. But when Renee’s troublesome ex comes back and threatens to drive her and Dylan apart, Renee is forced to face her past and save her relationship with Dylan before it’s too late.
Sound Bites dramatizes what happens when Renee finds herself caught between a painful past and an uncertain future. Happiness turns out to be within her grasp, but it all depends on whether she can trust herself enough to make the right decisions. Sound Bites is a novel about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness, and the power of music to help you find your way. Amazon USAmazon UKB&NGoodreads
