The Sundial Restaurant

I just received an email from a reader who wanted to know if the restaurant Alyx and Benjamin eat at for their one year anniversary in my first book is a real place, because if so, they'd want to eat there! The Sundial is definitely a real place... I've eaten there many times myself! It's neat to be seated near the window and experience a 360 degree view of the city as it slowly rotates you around. If you ever visit, though, make sure you have enough dough in your wallet! It's not cheap, but well worth it. :-)

Because I'm feeling nostalgic, below are some pictures of the hotel, as well as the spectacular views inside the restaurant. I'll even include a link so you can peruse other pictures and their menu!

Girl on Fire

Listening to music as I'm writing my third and final book of the Alyx Rayer Series, Destined for Fire, and Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" song came on and I thought to myself, now THAT would be a great soundtrack song for this book!

Like I've mentioned before, music and writing go hand in hand for me, so I've decided to share at least one song that particularly inspired me while writing each book in the series:

Book One: Enchanted by Taylor Swift

Book Two: Turning Pages by Sleeping at Last

Book Three: Girl on Fire
