March Coming Attractions

Finally March!  Can spring be far behind?  I sure hope not!

Welcome to the first month of the new, laid-back Lair.  As you can see, we’ll be around from time to time, and we’ll also have guests on occasion.




Bandita Jeanne Adams will be in the Lair on March 8th to talk about Spring Books, Springboks, Reeboks and Heading Into Bloom Time (just kidding about the Springboks.  Wanted to see if you were paying attention!)  She’ll also be giving away a copy of her WWII Novella, Behind Enemy Lines.





On March 17, celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in the Lair.  We’ll have Sven’s special canapés along with other yummy treats and, of course, the traditional green beer.  Rumor has it that the cabana boys will all join in the wearin’ o’ the green.

We’re also celebrating the launch of a new anthology, Tiny Treats 2: A St. Patrick’s Day Collection, which features micro-stories that are great for the occasion. Some of the authors will be dropping in. So come join the party!



Dangerous SecretsCaroline Warfield will be back in the lair on March 24th to talk about sex (Heavens!) and her new release.

As Donna MacMeans will be on the road on March 23rd (at least she’s headed someplace warm and sunny) she’ll be blogging on March 25th instead.

Nancy Northcott will be in the Lair on March 26 to chat about books under the bed and other unfinished projects.

    Oh boy! Lots to look forward in March! Our family’s got some fun birthdays to celebrate in March, so that’s a treat too! Yay!

    • Fedora, I love a month with birthdays! My mom, my nephew, and I were all born the same month. We used to have one big celebration and three cakes.

    • Oops–forgot to congratulate you on grabbing the GR! I hope he’ll behave He has been rather pouty lately about not getting to go somewhere new every day anymore.

      • Shannon says:

        Nancy-Have you thought about have rooster nabbing times. You announce an hour that he’s running loose. And then the person who posts a comment closest to a secret number gets him for the next xx days on FB?

  • Heathercm2001 says:

    Cheers to a new month! I love that spring comes in March! The transitional seasons are my favorites because the weather is usually mild. Spring and fall don’t have as much of the extreme heat or cold as winter and summer. I also love that March is the month right before the Barbara Vey Luncheon!!! Yippee!

    • Heather, I’m hoping for spring to arrive in March, too, although the view out my window is not promising for that. We had some mild icing this morning, and now it’s just cold and dreary.

      I want to go to Barbara’s luncheon someday. April is jammed this year, but maybe next!

  • Jane says:

    Happy March. We’ve had a brutal winter so far, so I’m really hoping March will bring warmer weather. I also like March because it’s time to shop for Easter candy.

    • Jane, I’m sorry about the bad weather! That has been fairly pervasive this season and looks to be continuing, judging by what they’re saying on The Weather Channel.

  • Helen says:

    Oh Donna

    I love March one because it is the start of autumn and we have the ARRA Convention next weekend YAY can’t wait to catch up with friends and make new ones

    Have Fun

  • Deb says:

    Still fun and good things coming in the Lair!
    Hmm, March can bring a hint of daffodils, some even peeking from under snow. March can bring 40° temps, which make Iowans happy ;). March brings a day off from school after two nights of parent-teacher conferences.

    • Thanks, Deb! Funny you should mention daffodils. I remember seeing them sheathed in ice when a storm hit just before the boy was born.

      I hope you have great weather for your day off!

  • Laurie G says:

    March brings daylight savings time. I like the light for evening walks. Warmer temps, the smell of orange blossoms and other flowers, trees are starting to bud. My daughter’s family’s visit. This year we are celebrating my grandson’s 1st birthday and also my daughter’s birthday.
    March has the March Madness basketball tournament which we follow.

    • Laurie, we follow March Madness if we have a dog in the hunt. I enjoy college basketball in general a lot.

      Your description makes me feel as though spring were right around the corner. If only! Though we’re supposed to hit 70 degrees later in the week, for one day.

  • Shannon says:

    This is a wonderful list of things to look forward to… new authors, book sales, daffodils, daylight savings, spring, March Madness, and an end to winter. Right now, it’s dropping sleet, but the forecasters are saying 50 by Wednesday. So for today, I’m doing gratitude that there is hope for good things to come. And I’m grateful I have a warm, cozy place with books on the Kindle.

    • Shannon, what a great list! It’s a nice feeling to be tucked up with a book when the weather is vile. I hope this is your last sleet episode of the season.

  • Kaelee says:

    March is when we traditionally get our most snowfall and this year we need more snow. That’s not my favorite thing though.

    My younger brother’s birthday is in March . I usually try not to play favorites with my great nieces and nephews but my favorite great nephew has a March birthday as well.

  • catslady says:

    Looking forward to any posts! First day of spring is in March and I just can’t wait!!!

  • jcp says:

    March is my birthday month and it means spring is coming eventually where I live.

  • Amy Conley says:

    March is grandson#3’s bday, on St Patrick’s Day, no less. HOPEFULLY we will be seeing green other places also. Yes, grass is visible today, but it sure isn’t green.

    And to top every think off St Patrick’s Day will be the 31st anniversary of hubby and my first and only date…been together ever since, married 3 months later, and still going.
