You know two things that go really well with tea? Tea goes great with knitting and reading. Perhaps drinking tea, knitting and reading all at the same time might be too much, but if you can do it, that's amazing. If you need a good book recommendation, I'm currently reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, by Susanna Clarke and am really enjoying it. If, however, you are looking for a book with significantly less than 800 pages, you should read my book! I just wanted to let you know that tomorrow, January 19, 2017, is one of my Amazon "free book" days. This means you can get my book, Half Veiled, for free! Yay for free things! So, if you have a few minutes and at least a mild interest, you should follow this link to my book on Amazon. Thank you so much for your support, and as always, thank you for reading this blog!
I would assume anyone who reads this blog (and I hope somebody does) is a creative force. I assume this because you are reading a knitting blog and knitting is a creative art. Creativity can eek out in many ways; my knitting needles catch a lot of my creativity. However, some of my other imaginative juices have flown into a book. It is a lighthearted fantasy designed to make the reader laugh, or at the very least smile a little. Perhaps lighthearted fantasies are not your thing, but if they are, or you are just looking for a quick beach read, I would really love if you chose my book for the honors. It is entitled Half Veiled and is available for purchase on Amazon for $2.99. That's cheaper than most knitting patterns! I have included the book cover and link to the Amazon page for your convenience. The book is published under my maiden name, Rachel Reese. I thought it had more of a ring to it. Something about those double r's.
I hope this new year allows you many outlets for your art. As always, keep knitting! And thank you so much for making my blog a part of your meanderings.
This is still a Rachel Simmons page, it just has more of my world outside of knitting. I hope you enjoy!
