Eve Gaddy’s Sing Me Back Home

I can be such a book girl sometimes, nothing makes me happier than talking books and themes.  One of my favorite themes is second chances and that’s partly why I’ve really enjoyed Tule’s Homecoming series.  Have you read any of the Homecoming books yet? Eve Gaddy‘s novella, Sing Me Back Home kicked off the Homecoming series.  I read it some weeks ago but still find myself thinking about Jack and Maya.  Such a sweet, delightful story about second chances and full of strong characters, it’s a quick read and has a good dose of humor and heat too.  Eve was kind enough to sit down to a quick Q&A with me about Sing Me Back Home — What did you love best about the idea … Continue reading Eve Gaddy’s Sing Me Back Home

Kelly Hunter on the Appeal of Bad Boys

I’ve had my head down a lot lately, trying to get some serious writing done and while I do try to be good and not get distracted, sometimes a girl just can’t help it.  Especially if she’s got great author friends who insist on writing fabulously yummy stories about delicious Bad Boys. If you’ve been keeping up with the Bad Boy books from Tule’s Holiday imprint, you’ll understand exactly what I mean.  It’s hard to ignore them.  They look so sinfully irresistible, standing there on the cover, whispering ‘come closer’.  And Kelly Hunter‘s bad boy, Caleb Jackson from Sympathy for the Devil fits the bill so perfectly! It got me thinking about all bad boys and why so many of us find … Continue reading Kelly Hunter on the Appeal of Bad Boys

Megan Crane: Falling in love with the Rodeo

Readers, you need no introduction to this guest author…my bud Megan Crane.  We’ve shared editors, publishers, an agent, and noone knows me better.  Welcome back, Megan! ~~ I was born in Texas, which means the rodeo should have been in my blood. (At least that’s what I think it means.  Shhhh.) Unfortunately, I spent only days in the land of my birth before being whisked away to New York, where rodeos were things I read about in my beloved romance novels and never part of my life at all. Until Jane. Jane has been the gateway drug to a lot of marvelous things in my life.  Trips to Hawaii, Italy, Montana.  Fantastic new books to read and write.  And one … Continue reading Megan Crane: Falling in love with the Rodeo

Melissa McClone: Writer Turned Cowgirl

I’ve been having a fabulous time in Morocco and enjoying some good times with Surfer Ty.  It’s been a glorious few days here.  I should try to find a way to do it more often!  The sun is bright and shining, the Souqs are full of vivid colors and tastes and the people are just amazing! I’ve also spent some time by the pool and actually just finished reading Melissa McClone‘s Kiss Me, Cowboy.  I’m such a fan of Melissa’s.  Not only is she a wonderfully talented author but she’s also a warm, wonderful person to know and this week, she’s a guest on my blog!  Here’s Melissa McClone to share her thoughts on being a cowgirl! ~~ Thanks for … Continue reading Melissa McClone: Writer Turned Cowgirl

Alissa Callen: Rodeo Up!

Surfer Ty and I are in Morocco and the UK for the next week but while I’m away, I’ve invited some of my Tule author friends to stop by my blog and share some cowgirl fun with you all as Tule returns to the Copper Mountain Rodeo!

Her Summer Cowboy: Katherine Garbera

Book four in the Marietta Fair series, Her Summer Cowboy by Katherine Garbera is available today and I am excited to share her story with you. I asked Katherine to be a guest on the blog today and she happily agreed. Here’s Katherine Garbera to talk to us today about country fairs, country music and her inspiration for HER SUMMER COWBOY. Welcome Katherine! Family is at the heart of my life. I grew up on a sprawling ranch in Central Florida where my parents raised three daughters alongside their Valencia orange crop. We listened to country music, especially John Denver, George Straight and Waylon Jennings. I’m not embarrassed to admit I cried the day I heard that Waylon died. When I think … Continue reading Her Summer Cowboy: Katherine Garbera

For Love of a Cowboy: Yvonne Lindsay

It’s no secret I love my author friends and the very talented Yvonne Lindsay is one of these people.

Yvonne’s latest release, For Love of a Cowboy, is book three in the Marietta Fair series from Montana Born Books and one I enjoyed reading so very much.  I had to invite her to come chat with us.  Please help me welcome Yvonne Lindsay! What happens when a superstitious hippie chick from New Zealand meets up with a taciturn Montana … Continue reading For Love of a Cowboy: Yvonne Lindsay

You’re Invited to a Facebook Party!

This Thursday, July 17th, we’ll be hosting another Facebook party to celebrate the Big Marietta Fair series from Montana Born Books!

Some of my readers have emailed to ask what exactly a Facebook party consists of so I thought I’d explain it here on my blog in case there are others who have questions too. A Facebook party is an online event; a fast and fun way to host a ‘party’ in order to socialize with friends … Continue reading You’re Invited to a Facebook Party!
