Norah--Work In Progress

Okay, so for those of you who have read Zane and are wondering about the second book in the series I just thought I'd give you all a little update on my progress:-) I have began writing Norah's story and am happy to announce that Chapter 1 is complete! 4000+ words down and only 70,000 (give or take a few) words to go, LOL. Now that I've started I'm hoping that things will continue to go smoothly with the rest of the story. Starting on Chapter 2 now, so if y'all will excuse me I'm gonna go pick up where I left off with Norah and Chase. Have a great day everyone!

Interview with Carolyn Brown, author of Mistletoe Cowboy!

Okay folks, today we have one of my favorite western romance authors visiting with us today! Please help me give a warm welcome to Carolyn Brown!

Good Morning, everyone! Thank you, Kimberly, for inviting me to visit here today. It’s only a week until Mistletoe Cowboy hits the book stores and I’m so excited about it. Wouldn’t it be fun to find a cowboy like Creed under your Christmas tree?

KL: What inspired you to become a western romance author? CB: Write about what you know. That’s what folks tell us and I believe it. If I tried to write about a chef in New York City, it would come across as fake and believe me readers can spot a fake in the first paragraph. I have written both contemporary and historical books, series and stand alone titles in both, and somehow the rancher or cowboy seems to come through in all of them. It’s what I know and love. It’s where I live and what I see on a daily basis. I was inspired to write romance because it’s all about emotion. Whether historical, contem…

Where'd Ya Go?

Hey folks! I am really sorry for my absence the past few days. We had a family emergency and ended up having to leave town to be with those particular family members who needed us. But I'm back now and am in the process of playing catch-up since I wasn't on the computer at all the past few days. I was completely surprised (and super happy!) when I checked "Zane's" sales this morning and saw that the book is still #1 in Western Romance Bestsellers on Amazon AND it's climbing the bestsellers rank in contemporary romance as well! I am just so ecstatic that you all are enjoying it so much:-) I had to put Norah's story on hold when we went out of town but I'm hoping to get a lot accomplished between now and the weekend. And the last bit of information I have to share is that tomorrow I will be participating/co-hosting the first Highlander Giveaway Hop with fellow author MK McClintock! Make sure you stop by all the blogs and enter for your chance to win som…

So Happy

Good morning, everyone! I hope y'all had a great weekend, I know I sure did. We took our two year old son to the zoo and had a blast:-) I also got some writing done--wha-hoo! I'm about 2,000 words into Norah and Chase's story and I gotta tell ya that I'm liking it a lot so far. This new story line should be pretty good:-) Zane is still holding in the top western romances on Amazon--actually it's back to #1! It makes me so happy that you all are enjoying the book so much! I appreciate you guys and your support so much...you just have no idea. Well, I hope you all have a great start to your work week. I'm hoping to get more of Norah and Chase's story written...I left them at a weird stopping point after their first interaction and I feel bad for just leaving them hanging like that, lol.Happy Monday!!!

Doin' The Happy Dance:-)

I AM SO EXCITED RIGHT NOW! Sorry for the yelling, lol, but I am just so ridiculously happy at the moment that I just can't help it. I was just about to head off to bed and decided to see how "Zane" was doing one last time before morning. To my surprise the book is now #1 in Western Romance Bestsellers on Amazon AND #81 in Contemporary Romance Bestsellers!!! Ah! This is just... I don't even have the words to really express how absolutely thrilled I am right now. I just want to thank all the readers out there because this truly would have never happened if it weren't for you! I hope y'all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it:-) Now I'm going to attempt to calm myself down enough to get some sleep because I have to be up very early in the morning, lol. Sweet dreams and happy reading!

It's Writing Time!

Okay, so I don't know if many of you know this or not but I hit a little snag with Norah's story... Well, I guess it's more than a little snag if you have to come up with a whole new plot and toss out everything you've done so far:-) But anyway, I've been brainstorming away and I think I have finally come up with how her and Chase's story is going to play out! Yay! I haven't actually started writing yet but I did do my outline (which is a first for me because normally I just start writing the story and then do the outline). I'm very excited to get started on this and I hope you guys are excited to see what's going to happen! I promise I'll keep you posted on how things are going and I may even share some teasers with you along the way:-)

A Big Thanks!

I just wanted to say "Thank You!" to everyone who downloaded a copy of When the Heart Falls during its free promo! And, of course, I also want to thank everyone who has purchased a copy of that and my new book "Zane" which received its first 5 star review on Amazon over the weekend! Both books are in the top 20 for Western Romance on Amazon and I really have you all to thank for that (When the Heart Falls is currently #20 and Zane is #6--ah!)! So thank you, thank you, thank you! Happy reading!

Happy Labor Day!

I hope everyone has a great day! The weather here isn't that great so we'll be spending our day indoors, but that's okay with me:-) Just having the extra day off to spend some quality time with my husband and son is all I can ask for. Happy Labor Day and I'll talk to y'all soon!
