Happy Halloween!

 Our oldest granddaughter will be a little bandito for Halloween. This is a family tradition. My husband’s father wore this suit when he was three, my husband (and all of his siblings) wore it when they were three or so and all three of our sons wore it. Now it’s the next generation’s turn. 

Goodness a lot has happened since my last post, which is why I haven’t been on line much. 

Besides being knocked-down by a long lasting cold, we had a wonderful celebration for my birthday on the 18th, a party at my niece’s house for her birthday, sleepovers with the granddaughters, a shopping trip where Papa bought me a lovely new winter coat (and himself a new tree stand), grandparents day at school, worked at my brother’s haunted house, and last weekend our children shocked us by throwing a surprise party for both Papa and I.  (His birthday was in September, and since we both hit the half-century mark, I guess the kids felt we needed a big bang.) We were totally surprised and had a wonderful time visiting with all the family and friends there.

The e-book version of Unclaimed Bride will be released on November 1st, and thank you to all who have already purchased this book. Your support is greatly appreciated and I sincerely hope you enjoy the story! 

I’m currently working on Marie and Stafford’s story. Set in the Dakota Territory, she arrives prepared to marry a cowboy who has ‘inherited’ the six children she’s in charge of, however Stafford isn’t that cowboy.  Yes, I’m having fun with this one!

I hope you all have a spooktacular Halloween, and to all of you dealing with Sandy, you are in my thoughts and prayers. 

I must also send out a plea to please vote. 

That’s all for now. Be good, stay safe, and love life.

Unclaimed Bride

Release day!

The paperback version of Unclaimed Bride was released today! The ebook version will be released on November 1st.

Running from the past…she bumps into her future!Mail-order bride Constance Jennings steps off the stage in Cottonwood, Wyoming, and waits for her husband-to-be. But he never shows up, and instead several other men are vying to take his place!
Single father Ellis Clayton must be the only man in town not looking for a bride. But his young daughter's habit of rescuing wounded critters means he ends up offering Constance a temporary shelter.
Having a woman around the house again is all too easy—especially seeing her bond with his daughter—but Ellis can't seem to let go of the past. Problem is, neither can Constance. And hers is about to catch up with her….
If you have a chance, stop over at Paty Jager's blog tomorrow. I'll be giving away an autographed copy of the book.
