Have I been going nuts or what? Sure, I’ve had to ask myself that question. Why?
I’ve had this cowboy aka soldier living in my head for months now. At times he thought HE was the boss, and other times he let me have my way. Occasionally, he needed to be smacked, but other times only a hug would do. He’s been shot at, nearly blown up, out of control, in control, had his heart ripped out, has been doubtful yet confident, angered, but more importantly–loved.
Trust me, the heroine in this book has needed a lot of support from her author, too.
- Cover reveal coming soon. I can’t wait to share.
- First round of edits are done, except for tweaking a few things before it goes back to the editor.
- Still hopeful about a late spring release. I appreciate your patience if you’re waiting for this one.
There’s always a “but,” isn’t there? He isn’t the only cowboy swimming around in my head. As if I had nothing else to do, I began to revise another book that is already published. That was a crazy thing to do you might say. Maybe. I had to update back matter so heck, why not go a little further. Okay, a lot further. I’m still not finished.
Would you believe two more are in there too? I must have a lot of empty space for all these characters to be floating around in my head. The hero for book four in my ranch series has squeezed himself right in there with the others. I wonder if anyone has a clue who he is yet. I left a big hint in Tristan’s Destiny Book 1.5. I can’t give anything away though.
Maybe you think that’s all the cowboys I think about. Wrong! I have also started writing a third book in the Bull Rider Series. A holiday with Velia and Caulder and then some. You know how family oriented they all are, so they’ll be visited by a few others because after all, I write books with strong family ties.
You may have noticed my home page has changed. That’s because I have left my other website, and don’t get me going on the host for that site because I’m not happy with them. I transferred my domain name to my blog here, which is now going to be my website. Still following me? Eventually, I’ll go through another change but I will still be right here.
Author Brand Logo…
Speaking of website, have you noticed my new Author Brand Logo? Thanks to Dawné Dominique at DuskTiDawn Designs for creating it for me. Get used to seeing it around.
I’ll be moving so that is on my mind as well. Before moving, I will be unpacking “junk” from my last move so I don’t have to re-move anything that is, well, “junk.” Do any of you know how to add extra hours to a day? Please let me know if you do.
I have no idea where I’ll end up. Literally.
Is all this excuse enough for you to forgive me for not being around my blog? I apologize for being a bad “Blog Mom” these past few months, but when these heroes start running around my brain demanding their own stories, I kind of let them take over for a time. Hah! I haven’t even mentioned the heroines who demand equal time, too. In reality, this is a good thing…
I blame my sexy innocent muse. I’m so very thankful for her…

I love your brand logo too. And I’ve been a bit of a bad blog mom as well, recently. Same excuse, except mine isn’t sexy cowboys but a fragrant courtesan and her antics. Warm wishes, Mary, for your house move and your new book, S x

Wow, how’d you ever get your characters to give you a bit of freedom to be the boss.It’s rare for them to relinquish control like that. Mind you, it sounds like you could do with a break from them at the moment with all you have on your plate.A change of website host. a move to a new property and as always plenty of stories on the go.
Look after yourself and please take care. I like the new brand logo.

Hmm, now didn’t I tell you the same thing about taking care of yourself, David? 🙂 I’m better at giving advice, but I get what you’re saying. Cowboys are tough, but really, I only threaten to smack them if they don’t back off. The thing is, some of them like to be smacked. I do look forward to a break eventually. I’m glad you like the logo. Thanks for skipping over the big pond to comment.
Hi Mary. I love the brand logo! Gorgeous — and it has *your* color!
So your brain is full of cowboys… that’s a lot better than the things that crowd my brain. 😀
> Wishing you well and sending good thoughts about moving. Try not to work too hard. Mega-hugs my friend.

I don’t know how not to ‘work too hard’ in some areas, but not hard enough in others. Thanks about the Logo. My designer would love to hear that. Have a great week, Teagan. Thanks for commenting.
