Primal Nature made Amazon Bestseller in four different categories in June. 

The past few weeks have been very hectic here in a good way. Thank you all for your mails and your congratulations on my bestseller status. I’m sorry that I haven’t answered you all yet. but I will do very soon. The same goes for everyone who applied to be in the ARC team. 
Yesterday was a real blast from the past for me. I went to a music festival here in Holland called Bospop. It’s tailored to the more “mature” public. Ok, you could say the “older” rockers, but mature sounds a lot nicer. Anyway, the bands featured played the songs that I grew up with, and they did a great job as well. We had the relaxing Reggae of UB40 and the energetic new-wave rock by Simple Minds just to name a few. If these bands don’t mean anything to you, don’t worry, their biggest fame was at the end of the last century. Yep, the 1900-somethings. 🙂
It was a great day. We had wonderful weather, lots of sunshine, great friends, good food and great music. It all shouted “Laid back Summer” to me. 

I always read a lot in the summer. Mostly books that I have been saving over the previous busy months. But sometimes books that I’ve already read before.
There are some books that come back to haunt me–in a good way. Books that I can read again and again. Usually, I’ll only read a book once, especially thrillers, because after one read I know the plot. But sometimes books come along that really are stayers. ‘The Wolf’s Hour” by Robbert R McCammon is one of those. It was my first foray into shapeshifting heros and I was hooked from the start.

Do you have any specific books in the Fantasy or supernatural genres that got you interested to read more? I’d love to hear which ones? And what it was that hooked you?

If you don’t have a favourite book yet, take a look at the choices below, maybe there’s one there that will take your fantasy.

Books, books and more books.
