Good morning everyone! Happy September! *sips coffee. Not that you can tell here, because the temperatures have zoomed back into the nineties, but it will be Fall in just another 22 days! There are so many things I love about fall, but one of my favorites is the warm gold, red, and orange colors. Seeing the world like that… it's incredible. I think fall is one of the things I missed most when we lived in California. When I was a child I'd have told you without hesitation that summer was my favorite season, and Saturday my favorite day, but now? I've grown out of the heat and into milder temperatures. Fall and spring are my favorites because of the gentling of the temperatures. I am more able to fully enjoy the seasons. As for days of the week, well, there comes a point where they all kind of blend together, but Saturday's are no longer top of the list for sure. I wouldn't step foot in a mall or store on the weekend, or attend an event or attraction like an amusement park. Saturdays are too full of people intent on cramming all the joy of life into a day for me to enjoy.
Today on the blog, in conjunction with Pride Promotions, I have a reveal posted for a great cover of Unbreak Broken by JK Hogan. There's a book giveaway along with that, so click HERE if you're interested.

Still working on Mum's the Word. I've finished chapter six yesterday. The bulk of that being written while I was at the dentists in the morning. The rest of the time there I spent looking at this: Mars Photos Show Alien Life. I don't know. That one they say looks like an iguana looks more like Kermit the frog to me, what do you think? I'm not going to say there's no life on Mars- and I'm definitely not going to claim that Earth is the only habited planet, but I will say that most likely evidence of extraterrestrial life will not take the form of Earth type icons like mermaids and Barack Obama. There are more things in this world Horatio…
Ahem. Before someone starts a rumor about alien abductions… The last of today's news is that I am thrilled to announce that I have partnered with Will and Paul at Pride Promotions to conduct a tour and giveaway for the release of the second edition of Keeping House.

BLURB: Mischa knows his brothers are up to something. He doesn't realize it will lead him to Donovan Holloway and change his carefree lifestyle forever.
Having grown up in a free-love hippie commune taking care of the parents who should have been taking care of him, Donovan Holloway, advertising executive, newly made vice president of the company where he’s worked for twenty years, has come a long way. He’s worked hard to put himself through school and achieve the American dream. All he’s ever wanted is a normal family life—house in the suburbs, two cars, two kids, a shaggy dog. A family to come home to, to care for, to care for him has been his dream since he was a small boy.
Green-eyed, liberally pierced, black-haired, Mohawk-wearing spoiled youngest son of a Hollywood producer and his actress wife, Mischa Blake has made a terrible mistake. In a fit of childish pique, he’s accepted a dare from his older brothers. The dare? Live on his own, supporting himself completely, for a year without accessing his trust fund. No problem. Except Mischa has never worked a day in his life, hasn’t finished college, and has absolutely no skills to bring to the table.
When he sees Donovan’s ad for a housekeeper/gardener, he has nothing to lose by applying, because really…how hard can it be?
ReviewsTop2Bottom Reviews 5 Kisses - "Lee Brazil brought Mischa and Donovan, as well as the secondary cast of characters to life on the page. Their strengths, conflicts, and emotions were genuine, and I become entirely involved in the outcome of the story. These characters are each entirely endearing"...Reviewed by Lisa
Night Owl Reviews: 4.5 Stars & A Night Owl Top Pick - "Keeping House by Lee Brazil is a fun, fast-paced and sexy story that kept me up well past my bedtime. I have a huge fondness for the `opposites attract' storyline. Throw in a little humor, likeable characters and some hot sex and I'm as content as my lazy dog, napping in the warm sun." Reviewed by DaisieMae
Long and Short Reviews- 4 Cherries- "Keeping House will capture your interest form beginning to end. The characters are realistic and could be anyone you would no. With such different personalities struggles are a given that add to these characters believability. The author did an excellent job of writing about the wants and hopes people seek at any age. Keeping House is a must read." - Reviewed by Coreopsis
