I can see out on all sides, up and down. From Ryodan’s glass aerie, he studies his world by naked eye and camera.

Definition from OneLook Online Dictionary

Thank you for stopping by to check out Tuesday’s Word. This is a fun one. I can’t believe Dani, KMM‘s 14 yo heroine in her new urban fantasy series taught me a new word. Thanks, Dani! Keep to the lights.

I’m also over at All Things Writing today talking about the challenges of writing time-travel romance. KMM knows all about these too, as she’s done some mighty fine time-travel romance writing in addition to her gripping UF. (She writes Highlanders, too, y’all, hot ones, who also have monumental basebal bats of love under their kilts).

So, here’s your revised to-do list for the day:
(1) visit All Things Writing and have a few laughs with me
(2) go buy a KMM book today. You won’t be sorry.

About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.

    Aerie happens to be one of my favorite words. Whenever I hear it, it conjures images of soaring mountains and craggy peaks where birds of fantastical size nest. It harkens back to my days of reading and writing fantasy. Thanks for the trip down memory lane 🙂 Very cool cover for ICED!
