I’m getting my post up a bit late today, plagued by a bad cold that has stolen my voice. It was interesting doing psychotherapy yesterday with my lame squeaky rasps! Hopefully I did some excellent listening.
Streamline is my third release, though it was the first novel I wrote. It involves competitive swimming–a sport dear to me. I started swimming year-round at age eight and continued through college. I still swim a couple of miles twice a week with friends.
How do you streamline in the pool? Align your body after the dive or push-off to “spear” through the water with minimal resistance. Here’s a beautiful streamline:
(And a beautiful body!) How do YOU streamline when you meet up with resistance in your life?
This young adult murder mystery just launched 3-27-12, and I’m looking forward to the Streamline blog tour May 7-12, hosted by Julie from A Tale of Many Reviews. Julie’s signed up about 40 Young Adult bloggers and we’ll offer a $25 gift card as the grand prize.
Early readers have told me Streamline is a page-turner, as evidenced by comments from two Goodreads readers this morning:

Victoria wrote: On page 103. “Swimming and navy. Two plot combinations I know a lot about. Can’t put it down.”
Ha ha ha! I love the varied reactions to the same novel. Swimming and the US Navy may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I hope the story will captivate readers.
See you Monday when I plan to post about Titanic, my favorite movie.
