There is nothing nicer than the smell of a paperback novel. I love my Kindle for its convenience, but holding a ‘real’ book in my hands has an endorphin-releasing power that makes me happy.
This beautiful box of paperback copies of Overdrive arrived on my desk with perfect timing as I steep myself in edits for book 2, Fast Lane, and write book 3, Burnout. The photograph doesn’t do them justice. Beautiful, rich autumnal shades make Chase and Charlie jump off the cover, and I want to move to Bigfork, Montana. Did I mention how good they smell? Like Heaven, holidays, romance, chicken salad sandwiches and talcum-powdered stowaways in the attic.

I’m in overdrive (or should that be hyperdrive?)
It’s been a rollercoaster of a year writing-wise with the Calhoun Customs Garage series racing off into the book world. Book 1, Overdrive, was received with excellent reviews which makes me a very happy author. I love it when readers share my love for these stories. Here’s a particularly lovely one from Keeper Bookshelf:
5.0 out of 5 starsTender, intense, believable romance. Looking forward to this series.

“Overdrive ticked a few boxes that caused this title to catch my attention immediately. NASCAR. Enough said. I’ve followed many NASCAR dynasties throughout my years of race car addiction, mostly the Earnhardt family, so getting the chance to be right inside those famous or infamous families was definitely a draw. Then there’s the chance to experience a new to me author with Juanita Kees. And this first book in the Calhoun Customs Garage series only tells me that I’ve got some intriguing reading in my future as I explore this author’s back list of books. I love when that happens. Add to those features the fact that Overdrive is an intense yet tender story of two people who really are perfect for each other in all their imperfections… and I was hooked. I’m betting you will be, too.”
Thank you, Marsha! I’m having a lot of fun gettting the Calhoun brothers and sisters into as much trouble as I can find.
