A blog about writing, being a writer, getting inspired to write, etc. For writers, authors, would-be writers and authors. I only have 2 rules. 1, please keep everything PG rated at most, there are some younger folks who read my blog; and 2, please do not criticize what others have written. I would like this to be a safe haven for folks to explore their writing style and to gain some confidence in their story telling abilities. Nasty comments will be deleted.

Hi, it’s Christina –
Good Morning and Happy New
I know it’s been a while,
but today’s post isn’t about me, it’s about some author friends of mine who
have been far more productive than I have. I hope you take some time to check
out these new releases.
First up, because TODAY is the big release date, is Lizabeth Scott. The long awaited 4th
and final book in her Royal Vow Series - Sweet Temptation: Chellie & Siran
is now available.
“Giving in to one simply
divine temptation changed the course of her life forever. Chellie’s world
spiraled out of control, and she had no one to blame, but the one man who lied
and betrayed her. Her one night of unrivaled passion became the worst and most
cherished moment of her life.
Prince Siran SuMartra
stood fourth in line for the throne. Nothing was expected of him, and that’s
exactly what he delivered. The image he put forth to the public was becoming
tiresome to maintain. When he woke disorientated in yet another strange bed,
with a woman he couldn’t remember, he knew it was time to change and take his
place beside his brothers.
Years later, two very
different people come together and discover they’re bound through a common
bond. Prince Siran sets out to make amends. Chellie knows putting her trust in
him again would only lead to another sweet temptation.”
Sounds pretty awesome,
doesn’t it? Don’t forget, if you want a taste of Liz’s writing before you
invest in the entire series, the prequel to the series, Sweet Royal Beginnings: Jane & Mikal, is available for FREE. Then, when you love it and can’t get
enough, Liz has the Royal Vows Boxed Set available at a discount, so you can
get all caught up on the SuMartra clan.
“Telling tales around
campfires goes back to the beginning of cowboy days and even before. This group
of tales differs in that they are told by D.A. Grady, in the comfortable role
of a working cowboy, and his friend from Atlanta, Ron Shaw host of The Ron Shaw
Show on ArtistFirst Network, who’s been invited to ride with him as D.A. mends
fences on a ranch where he works.
Both men bring to this
fictional experience an actual law enforcement background, one in the rural
West and the other in urban surroundings, providing an unusual twist as they
compare true cop stories – the good, the bad and the ugly.
Along the way, the reader
is introduced by these two internationally read members of From Gents’ Pens to
a variety of unexpected events along the trail, and nights abound with
skillfully woven tales, mostly true, that tug at your every emotion. So settle
into your sougans, and let the boys top off your mugs as they share with you tales
from Around the Campfire.”
I’ve read several of the
stories which made it into this book, and they are thoroughly entertaining.
“Cindy and Jay from Susan
Jean Ricci’s award-winning novel Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems are at it again in
this delightful addition to her Cindy’s Crusades series.
Recently returned from a
successful trip in their RV, affectionately nicknamed the Snark Ark, the
happily married duo find themselves inexplicably at odds as Jay suddenly begins
acting strangely. A tiny corpse, Cindy’s Lenape advisors, and a blind seer all
conspire to bring matters to a head, as the beloved, From Women’s Pens author
once again leads her readers through a rollercoaster ride filled with the love
and humor for which this wonderful series is noted.”
You may remember Cindy
from Dinosaurs & Cherry Stems and The Sugar Ticket. Well, the
tongue-in-cheek, brassy, sassy lady is back with more antics. I can’t wait to
see what mischief she’s gotten herself into this time!
Looks like I’d better get
my nose to the grindstone if I want to keep in step with my friends.
So, that’s all for today.
I need to go get ready. I’m meeting author Karen Hluchan in Peddlers Village in
a couple of hours, and the two of us are scoping out new locations for book
signings. Unfortunately, after more years than I can remember, Canterbury Tales
Forever Bookstore is closing its doors. It truly breaks my heart to see another
wonderful shop leaving the Village.
Until next time – I hope
you have a WONDERFUL day & Happy Writing!
