Land's End Trilogy by Melodie Campbell now available!

Melodie Campbell, one of my very favorite authors, has three books in her Land's End series. It's Science Fiction-Fantasy filled with enough romance to heat your coldest night.

Click HERE to be taken to Melodie's website.

What could be better than "Outlander meets Sex and the City"?
How about all three books under one cover?!
I wouldn't brag on these books if I didn't love them all. Melodie Campbell can sure spin a HOT yarn with Rowena's wild adventures.
If you were to buy each book separately, they'd total up to nearly $13.00.
This trilogy is available for the unbelievable price of  ---- $5.99!

Spotlight: Sharon Cullen - Pleasing the Pirate (on SALE!)

On sale for .99 cents!

From Sharon Cullen, author of the eBook sensation Loving the Earl, comes the tale of a ruthless pirate and the Scottish lass who fills him with desire for something greater than plunder.

With her clan’s crops burned and their property confiscated, Mairi McFadden is desperate to free her brother from imprisonment so that he can take his rightful place as chief. Her only hope is the fierce English pirate Phin Lockwood, but the buccaneer laughs at her meager funds. His roving eyes, however, tell Mairi there’s something else he’ll take in exchange for her brother’s rescue. Though she burns with hatred for the English, she’ll do anything to save her clan.

The crown has made it clear that Phin has two choices: bring in a certain Scottish traitor or hang. And he’s not about to let a tiny, whiskey-eyed woman get in his way, even if she is pointing a gun at him. When Phin learns that Mairi’s brother is the very man he seeks, he’s more than willing to use the lass as bait. But as the moment of capture draws near, Phin is surprised by his feelings for the courageous beauty who has him considering risking his life—for someone besides himself.

Thankful for the little things

Today is Thanksgiving and yes, I’m stressing.  But what has me pulling my hair and chewing nails to the nubs isn’t the green bean casserole or burning the marshmallow yams again. It’s the writing life, the part of me connected to my laptop via flying fingers and headache storms.

Will I learn to promote correctly? Why doesn’t my marketing EVER work? Can I finish this manuscript before our mortgage is paid in full?

Bottles of ginkgo biloba later, and I’m still running on the hamster wheel. The good news is when I look around the writing world—I’m not the only one.

Hey! I have company!

And then I read this post by Kristen Lamb and realized how far I’d fallen from the turkey trough. Like Kristen (the Queen of Ultimate Blogs),  we have kid(s) at home, a business to run, and shit to do…

And more things to be thankful for than could possibly be named in one blog.

Here are a few:

I’m thankful for the dirt and dog hair I sweep or vacuum on a daily basis.
Without these items of filth, I’d lead a very dull life indeed. I can’t imagine a day without barking, manure-crusted boot soles, and laughter coming through the door.

I’m thankful to be scrubbing my toilet.
Nearly 80 percent of the rest of the world (a figure I pulled out of the air) lives without indoor plumbing. My mother grew up in a home without running water or flush toilets. I wilderness camped for 3 days (with two little kids) and had my fill of digging holes.

A family-sized hole!

I’m thankful for gopher holes, dead leaves, and a lawn that’s gone to seed.
It only serves to remind me that I’m fortunate to live in a home with a yard surrounded by trees. (I can always set the sheep on the grass – they’ll mow and fertilize for me)

I’m thankful for my health, and the health of my family.
In the past seven months, I buried my dad and mom. They lived a full, vigorous life and taught me the importance of exercise and clean eating. Most importantly, I learned to take everything in moderation and deny myself nothing.

I’m thankful for dusty furniture, piles of laundry, and an empty bird feeder.
Since I began writing, daily chores took a backseat to outlines, character profiles, and endless plotting charts.  However, if the dresser were spit-shined, the laundry smelled mountain fresh, and wild birds nested in my eves, I wouldn’t have time to massage my creative side. 

I’d be frustrated and one of those wives.

Thank you to my family: for putting up with my wild hairs.
Thank you to my friends: while I wish I could spend more time, there’d never be enough time.
Thank you to my readers: I do it all for you.

Enjoy your time with family and friends. Remember to be thankful for the ants that invade your cupboards, the backed up sink, and the neighbor’s dog who leaves a present at the base of your mailbox every morning. 

Be thankful we live in a country rich with food and clean water, gridlock traffic, and six o’clock news.

Be thankful. I am.

Happy Thanksgiving.
