Fantastic news, Quinn is live!

Unfortunately the version I approved is not being sent out. The version I downloaded to my devices is not what was was sent out to the pre-orders.

I’m sorry that this is the case. I am working on getting it rectified. Please stand by and hopefully the correct version can be sent to your device for your reading pleasure.

Is the end the end?

I can’t do it. I may have ended that story line but I have to see those characters again.

Sometimes the ending sneaks up on me and I sit back in shock that it’s done. Sometimes I take two months to actually write the last chapter. But these characters pop up in other books just as quirky as always.

True love never ends.

Happy reading!

Bad Review?!? You must have the wrong series.

But seriously, my opinion is it makes me legit as a writer. Not everyone can like my work. I would love for them to, but they won’t. I shouldn’t read reviews even when they are good they can be off putting. “I loved the book BUT…” and so on.” 4out of 5 stars is still awesome but that detail that someone didn’t like will stick with an author.

I’m legit, to legit to quit.

Happy Reading!

To brag or not to brag?

No seriously, is bragging the same as marketing? You want to tell people why your product is so awesome and they need to buy it right? Is that really all that different from bragging?

Maybe marketing is just bragging, dressing itself up respectfully? That’s an interesting thought I just wrote down. Maybe bragging in small doses isn’t such a bad thing?

What’s in a prologue?

Welcome to the Romance blog hop!

The question is are prologues useful or a big no no? I’ve heard yes, no, maybe. I take that to mean rip up the rules and make your own.

Not all of my romances to date have had what could be deemed a prologue. But when I have one they give you a deep glimpse of the main character from the get go. I hope that it connects the reader to my story and gets them invested fast.

That can be a lot harder to do in my style of stories as they aren’t action packed but about the couple and how their relationship forms. What obstacles do they face in being able to have a happy ever after and so on.

Happy reading everyone!


Humor is a tricky thing even among family. Mine is very pointed and dry. Which can be very off putting for most people. They aren’t sure to take you seriously or laugh. Sometimes they laugh and worry that you are telling the truth.

Lately my husband has been worried about my very short stories and how “black mirror” esk they have gotten lately. It’s the place I’ve been lately, what can I say!

What is a Useless Talent?

Welcome to the Romance blog hop.

The question this week is do you share or hide a useless talent? I think any talent that you don’t use to your advantage for something is useless. So no. I try to always use my talents to my advantage.

What I think I’m saying is that I don’t have a useless talent as I use them sometimes just to make myself happy.

Keep it happy peeps!

Is it collecting or hoarding?

Welcome to the Romance Writers blog hop.

Is it collecting or hoarding? Well is it? Is there a distinction? I think every person who meticulously throws things away and live in a minimalist fashion would say that large collections are indeed hoarding no matter the order and structure used to categorize the collection.

Those that are in the middle would say there are degrees. I mean really just because I’ve kept it for ten years doesn’t mean anything compared to the fact that I finally used it and saved myself ten dollars.

This is important ya’ll.

PS Don’t look around my husbands barn or his fathers or his brothers, they will use that junk one day. (One man’s junk and all that.)

What happens in March on a farm in Western Oklahoma you ask?

Well well well, let me say it’s my anniversary so that is the biggest thing…hahahaha I kid. Although 18 years is nothing to scoff at. everybody really does celebrate my anniversary can you guess what day it is?

The cattle come off the wheat pasture and get sold to pay for our taxes. It takes a decent amount of cattle. That’s a hard check to write and we never get a refund. I’m not complaining, just stating plan old facts. Most people don’t understand what the refund means, you are getting back the amount you over paid to the government and they feel they didn’t need. Its like a really bad savings account in my estimation. They don’t even pay you interest for using your money. But I digress. We pay exactly what we owe.

What else? The Schoolhouse opens up on Airbnb again. And many honey do’s are completed in this month. Not sure what those are this year

Stress eating…no way. (sneaks off to make bread)

Welcome to the Romance blog hop.

Don’t we all stress eat or not eat when we are stressed? For me I love carbs. but since I’m going on vacation really soon, I have not been able to indulge. I LOVE the smell of baking bread. Do you know what I love more than that?

That’s right a piece of still warm fresh bread with the butter melting into the surface…nom nom nom. Now I’m hungry for something I can’t have. I blame the Marketing for Romance Writer’s.
