From me to you ~ Saturday in Madison WI ~ Madtown Author Daze!

Short and sweet!

I’m still working on Finding Faith. She is about to have a rude awakening. She’s seen a dragon but she never imagined they were also men! But, I’m taking a break today to be at a book signing.

So, if you’re near Madison WI come on over and say hi!

No automatic alt text available.

Lots to do in the area besides meeting some awesome authors! All genres of books will be there.

We’ll be in the lobby of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. The Farmer’s Market is just down the street and State Street offers up a mix of funky shopping and a whole range of bars and restaurants to enjoy.

Head on over and make a day of it! Don’t forget to stop and say hi! You’re more than welcome to stop and purchase books, too, lol.

I’ll have my newest release along! Willow’s Cry on sale in paperback for $5.00 for an autographed copy!

Can’t make it today? I’ll be in Minnesota next month! Illinois in July. August in Iowa and back in Wisconsin for September and November!

Alex is just a regular guy… who can hear the wind speak and the earth talk, not a bad thing for a Park Ranger if a bit unusual. His life is everything he desires. Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect. Alex is left to try to stop the sale, finding a damsel in distress along the way who wraps herself around his heart.

Happy living in her tree, observing the world without joining in, Willow has yearned for Alex for years. Too shy to emerge, the little nymph is suddenly catapulted into Alex’s arms, her tree destroyed during a massive storm.

Mother Nature has a plan and she’ll do everything she can to force Alex’s family to continue their roles as guardians, even if it means sacrificing one she protects.

Meeting the future MIL is always nerve wracking… Excerpt:

Willow nodded and started searching. Leaning over, she pulled up a rock and brought it back. She looked at the pile of wood and dropped the rock. She hunted enough to encircle the pile of wood Sarah stacked for the fire. When she finished, she sat on the end of Alex’s sleeping bag, hugging her knees to her chest, glancing at Sarah from the corner of her eyes.

Alex glanced at the two of them, circling around each other like wary animals. His mind split between Levi, his mother and Willow.

“What?” Sarah gave an exasperated sigh. “You obviously want to ask me something, so go ahead and do so.” She grabbed a piece of wood and sat down, sitting as gracefully as a queen on a throne.

“Do you hate me?”

Sarah rolled her eyes. “No. I don’t even know you. I’m not thrilled about Alex falling for a wood nymph, but I suppose there is nothing I can do about it. He’s a grown man and entitled to his own mistakes.”

Willow eyes welled with tears. “You think I’m a mistake?” Her voice was a whisper as it came out.

From Me to You #happytobewriting #oopsIkilledhimoff

I played hooky last Saturday! I couldn’t think of a thing to write.

Nada, zip, nothing.

I’ve been in a bit of a slump. I’m stuck on my dragon story, Finding Faith. I’m stuck on my erotic short, Triple D: Enticed by the Cowboy. So… I went into my manuscript file to see what caught my eye. I settled on a bit called ‘the old lady’. LOL. I think I should call it, ‘I’m not old, dammit!’ I read it, laughed and started writing again. From the story line so far, I must have been pissed at my husband. I killed him off! 28 years of marriage and being a writer will do that I guess.

Better than arsenic or a bat when he’s sleeping or any of the real ways to bump him off!

So, I’m not sure where this will lead. A middle aged… cough cough… romance probably. Dead husbands, meddling family, even if they mean well, and who knows? maybe a ghost! No clue where it’s headed, but at least I’m writing again! I moved my desk up into a corner in the bedroom. Writing in the dining room wasn’t working with my daughter and granddaughter now living with us. But wrapped in pajamas and finally comfortable and able to reach my computer even in the middle of the night to write will do wonders! I write when I’m happy I guess, and comfortable.

Since my husband helped me get my desk situated, I wouldn’t bump him off now, but since I already did…  🙂 I’m going with it! If I look, I probably have more bits like that. I have a temper and he sets it off without even meaning to poor guy! So I put it down in words and let it go. We don’t fight a lot, just snipe at each other for a bit and settle back down. When I hear my mother coming out of my mouth, I shut up, LOL.

So, catch up on some of my books, I will be putting something out still this year, though my schedule was railroaded with the girls moving back home. I’m too close to the end on at least three books to not get at least one out. So your guess is as good as mine which one it will be!

Here is the victim of my paper crime, lol. Pirate day at Red Lobster.

 

So, if you are in West Bend WI on Sept. 23rd visit me!

Threshold’s Showcase of Authors IV being held on Saturday, September 23rd at the Lawrence and Vivian Stockhausen center, 2380 West Washington Street, West Bend, Wisconsin

The event runs from 10 AM to 1:30 PM.

Then, on Oct 7 I’ll be at Brew City Book Signing in Milwaukee!

This will be my last signing until April. Then I’ll be at the Northern Iowa Book Bash!

 

Just a dirty five letter word!

Today I’m at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art

227 State Street, Madison, WI 53703

11am – 400pm

 

 

Feel free to stop by and say hi! This event is free to the public. 35 authors will be there along with live music.

Kick off Madison’s Farmers Market by stopping and shopping with us.

I’ll have signed copies available for sale of Stealing Hope, A Saint’s Salvation, A Sailor’s Delight and Love Me Forever.

A Dragon’s Treasure is at my editor’s (Magic Wand Editing). I’m on the hunt for a cover and still hopelessly lost when it comes to figuring out my blurb for the back cover!

How about this?

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Biding his time, he searches for her finally settling in Wisconsin. Something drew him back every time he left. Giving in to the pull, he stays.

Connie is a college student. She witnessed a murder and is running for her life. She decides to hide with her cousin and is attracted to Kai from the moment she meets him. Until he opens his mouth.

Kai has no problem claiming Connie as his mate. Too bad she doesn’t agree. There’s that whole ick factor going on that she can’t ignore. Kai will do his best to change her mind, one kiss at a time.

Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.

Eh, it’s just a start! My mind is on getting ready for the signing and blurb is just a dirty five letter word!

A Dragon’s Treasure will be released June 16. I’ll be in MN at a book signing and it will be available there on release day.

 

Hard at work

 

I’m hard at work! LOL. My granddaughter is fascinated by computers and seems to love mine. Before I could stop her, she’d climbed into my lap and had her hands on the keyboard.

I have to sneak time to write as the computer seems to be a magnet to her sticky little fingers. So it is taking a while to finish anything! With the move behind us, and her early bedtime (okay sometimes I go to sleep at the same time!) I can get down to work writing.

I am hard at work. I’m down to 20 pages to rewrite on A Dragon’s Treasure. I’ll have it to an editor by the end of next week. I had hoped to have it at the book signing I’m attending on April 15th in Madison WI, but that’s not happening.

I’ll have it available for the signing in Saint Paul MN on June 16th and the Brew City Book Signing in Milwaukee WI on October 7th.

So, if you are anywhere in the vicinity of Madison WI on April 15th, come check out the authors (and ME!) at Madtown Author Daze. We’ll be there to start off the opening of the Farmer’s Market! Dozens of local authors and live music! Come out to this FREE event on April 15th from 11-4 in the lobby of Madison Museum of Contemporary Art!! https://hdtk.co/BE6Jb

 

Hope to see you there!
