People often ask what my writing day is like. Since I’m a workaholic, most of
my writing days are long and mentally tiring. I thought it might be fun to tell
you what my perfect day would be.
Aside from a trip to Paris, Rome, or some other exotic location, I had a perfect
day last week. I did some book promo for the first book in my Texas Trilogy, BEYOND REASON, which is out
May 30th, then went to work on the book that comes out in February next year,
It was one of those days where everything came together. Since great writing
days don’t happen that often, authors value them highly. Because it was the
first truly glorious day in Montana after a long winter, I decided to quit a
little early. I was drained after writing an intensely romantic love scene, but
happy with what I’d produced.
As a treat, my husband and I decided to go on a camera safari. Loading snacks
into the pickup, we headed into the Montana mountains. In one afternoon we saw
a herd of elk, two dozen deer, a group of sand hill cranes, an osprey, and a
variety of ducks and Canadian geese.
Set among scenic, snow-covered mountain vistas stretching as far as you could
see, it was a nature lover’s dream.
Supper on the way home was a stop at Trixie’s Antler Saloon. Yup, that’s
right. Trixie’s--the only food around for miles--is definitely rustic. But
there’re great folks who’ll throw a steak on the grill and pour you an ice-cold
We headed home in the dark, tired, but smiling. The end of a perfect day.
In the morning I went back to promoting my new book, BEYOND REASON, Lincoln Cain
and Carly Drake’s story. In the story, a ruthless Texas drug lord wants Drake
Trucking, the company Carly inherited from her grandfather, Joe Drake. Big
money is involved. And very big danger.
Multi-millionaire Lincoln Cain has vowed to protect Carly. He’s determined to
keep the promise he made Joe for helping him turn his life around after he was
released from prison.
It’s a high-action thriller with plenty of passion and romance. I hope you’ll
look for BEYOND REASON
and that you enjoy it.
Love to hear what your perfect day would be.
Till next time, all best and happy reading, Kat
New York Times bestselling author Kat Martin raises chills as danger
stalks a woman determined to make it in a man’s world . . .
Five weeks ago Carly Drake stood at her grandfather’s grave. Now she’s
burying Drake Trucking’s top driver, and the cops have no leads on the hijacking
or murder. Faced with bankruptcy, phone threats and the fear of failure, Carly
has to team up with the last man she wants to owe—Lincoln Cain.
Cain is magnetic, powerful, controlling—and hiding more than one secret. He
promised Carly’s granddad he’d protect her. The old man took a chance on him
when he was nothing but a kid with a record, and now he’s the multi-millionaire
owner of a rival firm.
But Linc’s money can’t protect Carly from the men who’ll do anything to shut
her down, or the secrets behind Drake Trucking. If she won’t sell out, the only
way to keep her safe is to keep her close . . . and fight like hell.
