From me to you! Just a little late ;)

 

Ah, Saturday! Currently I’m holed up in my RV in my driveway. Windows are open letting the fresh breezes in, fan is running to help clear out the stale air. The generator is new and shiny, ready for a trip. We’re planning on hitting the road next weekend and camping in the parent’s driveway, lol. Cheap, but away from home.

We stocked up on travel games. My daughter and I love to play board games. I may not often win, but I have fun. We have designated one cabinet just for entertainment. Games and videos. One cabinet for snacks. You have to munch while you’re having fun!

Today we drove down to Camping World since I had a $25.00 certificate for signing up with Good Sam. I had one week left to spend it. Just grabbed some miscellaneous stuff we wished we had on our first trip.

Then, when we got home, we headed to the Pepper Fest. Everything is centered around peppers. I had some chili but as it placed in 11th place, I can tell you it probably was the last entry! But I ate it anyway.

I should have had a grilled cheese or the pepper pasta. I snagged some of my daughter’s pasta and it was delicious.

The little one got her face painted, enjoyed some time with a children’s entertainer that was there, and I bought pepper kettle corn. We’ll see how that goes, lol.

So, over all a lazy Saturday. AND it’s dry! No rain in sight today. I hope. With very little quiet space at home, I decided to try the RV on for privacy. I think it is going to work juuuussst fine! At least until we have to store it for winter.

Well, I’m heading back to writing. If you want to know what I’ve been reading, let’s see…

Love at Furst Sight by Terry Bolryder

Her Rough Mountain Outlaw by Madison Faye (Aye chiwawa, it’s a hot one) ❤

Law of Desire by Leah Brooke (I absofreakinlutely love Desire Okalahoma-read everyone of them!)

Liv by Kelsie Rae (sniff)

Her Alpha Mismatch by Emilia Hartley

Mountain Man Regret by Ava Grace

and last but not least

Mountain Man Next Door by Ava Grace.

I love my mountain men stories, lol. I love to read all about those alpha af men! This was just my list from this past week. From about Tuesday I think. See why I don’t get a lot of writing done?

So, now, writing. I have got to finish this book!

Ciao!

Good morning!!!

A little later than normal, but I’m here! Sort of slept in, my granddaughter decided I’d make a good bed, lol. So I was a bit trapped until she got up. It’s a bit gloomy. We’ve had nothing but rain for a week. Okay, yesterday was beautiful but today is going back to gloom and rain.

I got a wonderful gift in the mail yesterday! Bookmarks hand made by Samantha Lininger, and yes, I was in back. (She knows what I mean!)

Check them out.

Absolutely adorable! I really, really, really love the dragon. The cow is so cute too. Thank you! I’ll see you in Middleton WI at Mayhem in the Midwest!

As for the rest of Labor Day weekend, I’m signing in New Glarus tomorrow 9/3. At the William Tell Festival & Art Show. Lots of Arts & Crafts and of course beer. The New Glarus Spotted Cow can be found around to wet your whistle.

Mayhem in the Midwest is on 9/22 and my final signing in September is 9/29 in West Bend WI at the Threshold Showcase of Authors.

Hope to see you at one of them!

From Me to You ~ A Dragon’s Fated Heart series

So, after Rise of the Dragons and after Stealing Hope, the dragon saga continues in Finding Faith.

I’m nearing the end, hoping to have it completed before I go back to work next week. Past a couple of beta readers, then off to an editor.

While it is in front of them, I’ll be searching for a cover. Writing the blurb. You know, the hard part!

Faith has taken a couple of journeys to reach the final product, from being a total brat that I couldn’t stand, lol, to a feisty and no holds barred young lady on a mission. I’ve taken so long to finish it because I’ve written it three times!

Finding Faith, which is totally not a religious book by any means will probably end up in Amazon’s religious section, lol. Two of my other books have landed there. I’m sure it is because of their titles. Sorry Amazon! Not sorry.

Here’s a sneak peak of a bit of the beginning of Finding Faith:

Crag leaned over and snagged a little piece of pink cloth from the floor. Clenching his fist, he brought it to his nose. The scent assaulted his nostrils. He breathed deep, the spiciness pervading his lungs. It curled inside of him, clenching his gut. He snapped his eyes open. Crag breathed the scent in again, savoring it. His dick twitched. Lowering his hand, he opened it and gazed down at the delicate panties. The scent assured him they belonged to his mate.

He turned at the gasp behind him. Hope, his brother’s mate looked at him in disgust.

“Is that necessary?”

His lips twitched. “Her scent is strongest in what she wore closest to her body.” He raised his brow, daring her to argue with him.

“Hmpf.” Hope shook her head and gestured for him to leave the room. “Just find my sister.”

Crag shoved the lacy panties in his pocket. He didn’t need them, but he wanted them. Pleased with having something of his mate’s, he quirked a grin at Hope. Patting Hope on the head he turned and left. The growl from her was just a bit of icing on the cake. Crag shook his head as he passed Hope’s grandmother. The twitch of his lips the only sign of his amusement.

Hope you enjoyed!

from me to you! fun is coming!

Oh I’m excited! I didn’t post anything yesterday because I hardly spent any time at home. I’ve been on the hunt for something in particular. We finally found it! We had to go get it and it was a 4 hour round trip. So, here are the pictures.

We are so excited to finally get an RV! 28 foot, bed in back and over the cab and even the dinette can be a bed for munchkins.

 

It even has a bathroom! You may assume that is normal-I did too. Until I found post after post selling RV’s that people had removed them for more storage. Yeah… storage vs. private bathroom. Nope, call me not interested! One even had it removed and added bunk beds. They had to be really small!

Finally, finally, after close to a year of searching we found one we both liked. So, now we can take the RV to Niagara Falls for vacation. And I’ll check out to see if there are campgrounds close to the book signing in Iowa in August.

For now, we’ll be outfitting it. Getting a couple of things checked out and adding. My hubby wants a rear view camera. After driving it two hours home in the pouring rain, I have to agree! That will be one of the first purchases, besides sheets.

So, I’ll try to keep writing while I have a new too to play with.

From Me to You!

I’m getting ready to go out the door for a Brat Fry. It’s a fundraiser for my AMVETS today. Only 3 this summer! I’ll be working until noon and then heading into work to work on my rural adjustments. Ah, the life of a Postmaster, lol!

Well, I did NOT make my goal of 5000 words last weekend with the girls gone. I *hanging head* started watching The 100 and got addicted! Nothing like a post apocalyptic show to hook me, lol. l haven’t even been reading much.

Which is not all my fault! If you follow me on Facebook, you know my paperwhite is dying. The battery is not holding a charge. So please, I need a new one so buy my books! LOL. Everything seems to go back to Amazon!

My two newest books:

Willow’s Cry

When you’ve pissed off Mother Nature, anything can happen…

 

Blurb:

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.

Free on KU!

And

 

A Dragon’s Treasure

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

 

Blurb:

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Drawn to a singular place on earth, filled with treasures, he still seeks the greatest treasure of them all. His mate.

Fleeing danger, Connie runs into the arms of destiny, but she has plans already, and a Dragon mate is not on the agenda.

Kai has waited centuries for Connie, and he will claim his mate. Patience may not be a Dragon’s virtue, but he always gets his treasure.

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

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