Country Music Friday - "Boys 'Round Here" by Blake Shelton



Kinda makes you wonder....

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! I just want to take a minute to thank all the men and women who have served our country! You are amazing people and I am very grateful for all you have done and continue to do!

TAG! I'm it!

Last week I was contacted by the lovely Christine S. Feldman to participate in a blog tag. The task is simple: answer ten basic questions about your writing. So here we go! 1)  What is the working title of your next book? Norah (The McKades of Texas, Book 2) 2)  Where did the idea come from for the book? Um...I'm still working on the overall plot :) 3)  What genre does your book fall under? Contemporary Western Romance 4)  What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition? I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to this! LOL. Some of the people I have picked aren't actors, so I guess you could say that I view these people as inspiration for those characters. For Norah McKade I picked Lindsay Ellingson, and for Chase O'Donnell I picked Henry Cavill. 5)  What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? Since I'm still working out the details of the novel I really don't have any kind of synopsis available yet :( 6)  Who is publishing your boo…

Hey Y'all!

Okay, so I know I've been really, REALLY slacking on the blog lately...I'm so sorry! But now that things are a little less hectic around here I'm hoping to change all of that. Thanks for sticking around!

Here's a little update on what's going on:
I am still working on my second novel in "The McKades of Texas". For those of you who don't know, this is going to be Norah's story. This one has been sort of a struggle for me. I was pretty deep in the story last summer but I had a plot issue that basically called for an entire rewrite. Sucks, I know. But I AM working on it. I don't want to say "Oh I'm hoping to have it out by blah blah blah" and give those of you who are waiting false hopes (even though I have said it in the past before......sorry, but I really thought I'd be further along by now). When I get on a roll and far enough in the story where I'm confident on a release date I'll let you guys know :)

I also got a n…

Tour Stop! "Heiress Bride" by Cynthia Woolf

Today I have the pleasure of hosting author Cynthia Woolf during her virtual tour for "Heiress Bride"! Cynthia is joining us today with a guest post on how to overcome that dreaded writer's block. Enjoy!

Overcoming Writer’s Block - by Cynthia Woolf
We’ve all had it.  Suffered from it like it was a disease.  Writer’s block.  The inability to put words on paper or on computer screen.  I’ve been facing it for several weeks now but I think I may have overcome it now.  How did I finally do it?  I’ll tell you. First I continued to write, just not on my WIP (work in progress).  I wrote blogs and emails and notes and letters.  Whatever I could to keep writing.  And I edited my manuscript.  And edited.  And edited.  But I still couldn’t seem to form any new words to add to the book. Part of my problem is that I’m a pantser.  I don’t plot out my books.  I simply wirte and let it happen.  I see the story much as you do.  It an organic process for me.  But, in this case, I could seem to…

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Supermoms out there!
