Research Trip!

This weekend I'm going to be down in Daytona Beach again with the family at the condo we've stayed at a few times this summer. I know, poor me!

It actually looks like we're going to have a Labor Day weekend without threat of a looming hurricane (The only Hurricanes I hope to see are those coming to Tally on Monday to get whooped by the Noles, but that's another post) so I anticipate a good time will be had by all.

I'm working on a proposal for a contemporary romance in which the main character's family owns this very tacky Florida gift shop. As a kid, I loved all the big state touristy spots- Weeki Wachi, Silver Springs and adored all the road side tourist traps. I remember begging my parents to stop the car so my sister and I could "browse." I hope to take lots and lots and lots of pics for inspiration. The working title on the proposal is "The Boyfriend of the Month Club." So far, it's been a blast to write!
Have a safe and Happy Labor Day weekend, everyone!
