Finally posting...

Again, I must apologize for the delay in posts. We made it back from Kansas but then I had a very busy work at week, which has been followed by company from out of town. One of my brothers from Nebraska is here, and it’s been wonderful visiting with him, but we’ve tended to stay up until Mid-night each night just talking and reminiscing. I must admit…I’m looking forward to a long and relaxing weekend.

I received a notice last week that Shotgun Bride will be available sooner than thought in print. It will be released in e-book in November and then print in February. I’m working on the third book in the series, Boot Hill Bride. If the titles of this series don’t change during the editing process, they will be: Shotgun Bride, Badland Bride, Boot Hill Bride, Garden Bride and Wildcat Bride. While in Kansas I was able to spend sometime with my husband’s uncle talking about the early oil days in the region, and am now anxious to do more research for Wildcat Bride. I’m also working on four short stories and the final galley for An April to Remember.

My car made the trip to and from Kansas wonderfully. I love driving her--however this week she has been back at the Ford dealer getting the decals put on as well as a few other ‘extra’s’ I had ordered. My loaner car is an orange and black Dodge Caliber, if I painted triangles on her door’s she’d look like a jack-o-lantern!

I hope you all a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

Dreams do come true

Last week I either had a mid-life crisis or I finally concluded I’m the only one who can make my dreams come true…So, pretty much out of the blue, I drove over to Denny Heckers, the local Ford dealership, and bought my dream car…A Mustang convertible! She is a beauty, and has been my dream car since I was twelve. I know it’s a very impractical car for Minnesota winter driving, so I kept my faithful Grand Am for when the pony has to be in the barn. I’m not done tricking her out yet, I’ve ordered the racing pony decals to run down the side of her and personalized license plates! This is so out of the ordinary for me, I’m still wondering if it’s all a dream! Probably will until those montly payments catch up with me! LOL

On the writing side…A Wife for Big John is now available in print (Yeah!). Shotgun Bride, Book One of the Quinter Brides, will be released in e-book on November 14th, and An April to Remember is in the final editing stages.

We are traveling back down to Kansas this Friday and won’t be home until the 18th. I will have very limited internet access while gone, so won’t be able to post until after we get home.

I hope you all take the first steps to making your dreams come true. Remember, you can’t win the lottery if you don’t buy a ticket.
