Links: Alyssa Cole, Textiles, & More

Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Buckle up for Wednesday links! This is a mid-week, chill party post. Take a break, grab some water, do some stretches. Whatever you need to do to regroup and power through the afternoon slog. And, if you decide to nap under your desk, I certainly won’t tell!

Love a prickly heroine? Frolic has some great reading recommendations for you! All of them are contemporary and I’d love to see a historical romance version of this trope.

An Oregon-based chef has started a catering and meal delivery service to accommodate the late hours kept by sex workers. I think the idea is fantastic and hope it takes off beyond the Portland area.

Want more of Alyssa Cole’s Reluctant Royals? You’re in luck!

Pakistani clothing company, Generation, has created a beautiful embroidered map to showcase the textiles and techniques of different regions across the country. Shoutout to all your fabric art and textile nerds!

Please meet the Kilted Coaches, a pair of Scotsmen who are also fitness and nutrition coaches!

Don’t forget to share what super cool things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!

    I think Agnes and the Hitman was one of the first books I read where I realised that the heroine didn’t have to calm down and be sweet to get her HEA, she just had to learn to focus that rage like a laser beam to destroy the obstacles in her path. Very funny, and much catharsis, especially for someone like me who errs on the side of timidity.

    StoryBundle has a – well – bundle of 12 books on cooking and crafting on a limited sale for $15. From their site:
    “In this bundle we’ve got a Drinkology Beer and God in a Cup, books about making our two favorite beverages, as well as The Perfect Pickle Book and Austin Breakfast Tacos, two of our favorite things to go along with those drinks.

    When you’re satiated, we’ve also got things to do with your hands! Knitting 24/7 and One More Skein get you into the nitty gritty of knitting. And to round out the bundle, there’s BiblioCraft, which teaches you how to use the library as a resource for finding projects, and Gifts in Jars, which should be self explanatory. (It’s about making gifts in jars.)”
