LAUNCH PARTY!!!! WOOT! T-minus 6 days..5..

by Jeanne Adams WOOHOOOOOOOO!!!! <It’s LAUNCH DAY for DEADLY LITTLE LIES!!! And yes, I AM shouting. Grins. I’m going to apologize right up front for shouting and happy dancing, and being just a liiiittttle bit immodest. This would be the reason: Deadly Little Lies was the book that almost wasn’t. It was written during one of the darker periods in my life as my father’s health was failing, and I had a difficult time getting it completed. (BTW, Thank you again, to all the Banditas and BB’s who helped me through all that. Ya’ll quite simply rock!) Of course, once

Do Judge a Book!

by Jo Robertson Many of my friends say that the book’s cover is what draws them to it in the first place. They prefer bright, rich colors and have definite tastes about what’s included on the front: hate headless torsoes, love bare chests, hate “busy” or “dull” covers, love glossies or pastels and sexy step backs. Sometimes they claim they’ll buy a book because the cover is so engaging, so brilliant and beautiful, they havc to own it! I’ve always been a pragmatic gal and think I can have my cake and eat it too. So while I enjoy a

The Great Minnesota Get Together

by Susan Sey There are a lot of reasons I love my adopted home state of Minnesota but one of the biggest is the state fair. We have the world’s best state fair. Nothing against your state fair, I’m sure it’s lovely. But the MN state fair just makes me happy. It’s about five miles from my house, first of all, but there’s a free park & ride less than a mile away that runs every fifteen minutes from 8 a.m. until midnight so we bike over there. I’m all about letting Metro Transit do the heavy lifting when it

WHAT IF?

by Suzanne Okay, those new to the blog may not know this, but I’m a big baseball fan. Yep, Love me some boys of summer! Now given my love of western historical romances, you’d probably think my favorite team would be the hometown Texas Rangers. Uhm, I do root for them to win as long as they aren’t playing my favorite team, The Cleveland Indians. That’s right, I’m a fan of the Tribe! We pay to watch 162 Cleveland games every year on TV. Through good years and bad, we root for our Indians. Now this past spring’s scouting report

Shake, Rattle, and Aloha — An Earthquake Tale

posted by Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy When an earthquake rattled the East Coast this week, it made me think about my own experiences with having “the earth move.” The DH and I are native Californians who have never lived anywhere but the Golden State. Given California’s reputation with regard to earthquakes, the two of us have lots of stories to tell about quakes, right? Wrong. DH has never been in a major earthquake, and the only one I was ever in happened when I was six-months-old (which hardly counts). In fact, these two old Californians had to go all

From The Big Easy to Big Bird

by Nancy This blog might also be called “What I Did on My Summer Vacation.” Who else had to write that at some point–show of hands? Yep, I thought so. I hated those essays, maybe because going to the beach with my family for a week or visiting my cousins didn’t sound very interesting. After all, we did both of those every year, with nothing unusual or noteworthy ever happening. This year, I started my summer with a first (and only) for me, by going to college orientation with the boy. He chose a school in the Deep South, so
