A Video Interview

Entertainers of the West-7 titlesI had the great fun of being interviewed for the Write Now! podcast hosted by Kitty Bucholtz. The topic was my 7-title series, Entertainers of the West, written within Debra Holland’s Montana Sky Kindle World. I talked about how I first got involved and then a bit about how I picked the plots.

Kitty also did an interview with Debra who shared about the process of how the kindle world came into being.

Both interviews are about 30 minutes in length.

Here is Debra’s, the first one:
And here is mine, the one that came out today:

 

Two more authors, Kristy Phillips and Louella Nelson, are scheduled to be interviewed in subsequent weeks.

The interview can also be found on youtube by looking up Write Now! Workshop.

lovestarget.kw.logo.kindle.web

I’m pleased to announce the release of Love’s Target, my 7th story in the Montana Sky world created by Debra Holland.

Blurb:

When a casino owner demands her hand in marriage to cancel her father’s outstanding debt, Vanora Deverell and her father go on the run. No matter what Vanora does, she’ll never do it as well as her late brother, even though she’s stepped in as her father’s apprentice. Having to dress as a boy to enter shooting contest grates on her nerves, but her shooting skill is their best chance to get out of debt.

Rancher Trent Melbyrne strives for recognition as a horse breeder in his own right. In a Bozeman shooting contest, he’s chagrined when his accomplishments are bested by a boy…until he learns a secret about his opponent. By revealing the shooter’s secret, he sets off a string of events that lead to a showdown on his ranch in Morgan’s Crossing, Montana Territory. Can he atone for the danger he’s caused?

Only $1.99 on Amazon or free in Kindle Unlimited

Guilt hangs heavy over Reggie Othmann, who thinks his childhood illness caused both his parents’ lives. His goal of becoming a doctor is met, but he’s unsure of his abilities with patients. When illness descends on the town, Reggie and Imogene tend the townspeople, but is their emotional tie born of the closeness of the ordeal or perhaps something more?

BLURB:  Newly graduated from medical college, earnest Reggie Othmann is headed back to his hometown to open a doctor’s office. After two weeks pass and not a single patient appears in to his office, he doubts his choice in professions. Then an unknown illness sweeps through the town, and he panics as he’s thrown back to the original disaster that sparks his wish to become a doctor.

Brash Bostonian Imogene Franklin traveled west to Dorado, thinking she’d found her mail-order match. A gross misunderstanding left her on her own for the first time and forced her into the only job she could find as a waitress. After raising her six siblings, she vowed never again to cater to someone else’s needs. But when the handsome doctor is overwhelmed by sick patients, she wrestles with breaking that vow.

2017 Highway Cafe Blog Tour–Meet Twinkle-Toes

2017HighwayCafeChristmasTour

Hi, everyone, Twinkle-Toes here, I’m so happy to be involved in this year’s blog hop because I love to dance and meet new people. I tie jingle bells to the curled toes of my slippers so I make music every time I walk. My favorite song that I sing often around the toy-making barn is “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” because I want everyone to get excited about the coming celebrations.

Another one of my favorite fun things to do is to decorate presents. A special shelf in Santa’s workshop holds last year’s Christmas cards. I grab down a few and find images to cut out, like a tree or a sleigh or a group of carolers or a star. If I’m careful, I can find two images from each card. By writing names on the back side, that cutout becomes a gift tag. I use a yard needle to poke a hole near the top and thread ribbon through or, if I don’t want to ruin the image, I tape the top to the wrapped package. Recycling makes me feel warm inside.

These stories comprise the first four titles in my Dorado, Texas series. Leave a comment to be eligible to win. If you have a favorite recycling tip, please share because I giggle when I find new ways to reuse.

Storybook Hero

My Heart Knew
