Mine was when I was a teen ager and my brother brought a guy down to meet me and I didn't know they were coming. At the time I was back in an old closet clean wall paper of the wall and had dirt and sweat all over me. I was a total mess.
Like you I believe in angels. For one thing when I was 21 I hit a tree head on. Back then we didn't wear seat belts, cars didn't have them or we just didn't use them. Someone was with me that day because I came out of that car accident with a broken are and dislocated shoulder. It did take a year to over it because my arm was broken so bad and they didn't think I would have normal use of it again, but I did.
I do not wait for the author to finish a series before I start. I go ahead and read what I have when I get it. I have waited two years before for a final book in a series. I usually keep the other books so I can go back and refresh my memory on the story.
I spent a lot of the summers staying with my girlfriend and her father was a lock keeper so she lived near the river so we spent time on the little beach there and went swimming in the river. My sister still lives where I grew up so I visit quite often. Love small town stories.
Sorry to hear about your father in law the same thing happened to us in Dec. My father in law passed away on the 12 of Dec and he had been ill for a while. Your books sound really good and I would love to read them. They sound like books from the heart.
I don't really think reading romance changes my relationships, but I love reading romance. It takes me into a different relationship that I don't have and I think this is fun. Leigh's books are just awesome and I would love to read this one. Most of the time I don't read book written by a man but this is on man's books I will read everyone I get my hands on.
I collect thimbles, pigs, and books. The pig collection got out of hand and then I started with the thimbles because they are small and I sew. Love to get them from different places. Books I will always collect. Love getting the autograph and try to keep all that is.
Just wanted to say I love your books and am hooked on your Eternity Springs series, don't enter me because I have read these three books. I am looking for Lover's Leap right now, looked at Walmart again today and they didn't have it.
My favorite series is Kaki Warner's Blood Rose series, I really got hooked on this one, she was also a new author and I love reading new to me authors. Your series sounds awesome will have to check it out.
I am not much on coming up with names myself! I know when my son was born my husbands family wanted him named after my husband but the third because husband was a jr. I refused to do so. I stuck with the same letters but not the name.
I always wanted a doll house but never had one. Before I got married we bought a small house, didn't seem like if was much bigger then a doll house four little rooms and a bath but that was all we could afford at the time but over the years we added on a remodeled the old part of our house and now its about an average size house, still needs to be bigger but its ours.
My summer hasn't been the best in the world. I have spend some time working on the house, its been two hot to get out and do the work outside I usually do. The past month I have has some problems with a tooth that had a root canal go wrong. So between spending time in dentist office and oral surgens offices it hasn't been a fun summer. This weekend have to move son back to college, maybe things will settle down after that.
Congrats on your new release! I think we all live in a fantasy to a certain degree. A lot of us live that fantasy through books. So I think I would really enjoy this book. I like to let my imagination wonder into different worlds.
I often find typo errors in books but I don't pay a lot of attention to them, that happens and I understant how. I have never really found anything to throw the book way off though. I really enjoy reading your books so I would love to read this one.
I am a little on the shy side but not as bad as I used to be. I do have a temper but take a lot before it comes out and I sometimes put foot in the mouth when I shouldn't when I get mad, trying to change that.
I love your book, they are awesome. I love the little peaks into a writers life. If they are a favorite I want to learn as much about them as I can. Authors make our world so much better because they give us different places to travel to.
I have been hooked on cowboys myself lately. I read Kaki Warner's books Pieces of Sky and Open Country, they were totally awesome reads. I have been in kind of a reading slum since. Don't know what I want to read. Maybe I sound check out the books in the post up above my. The Vicki Lewis Thompson's books sound really good!
I am in a bit of a reading slump myself and I am not sure what I want to read! I read Kaki Warner's book Open Country a couple of weeks ago and it was awesome but I have not found anything since to keep me into the book. I think i was spoiled by that one book.
I usually read them as I get them because i can't wait! I do go back to the other books a refresh my memory! I am reading Kaki Warner's Blood Rose trilogy right now, I have read two of the book but the last one comes out in January! I really recommend these books the first two are Pieces of Sky and Open Country, they are awesome!
I don't read magazines very ofen but I love a good anthology when I don't have a lot of time to read! I go for the full novals when I have time to set down and spend time with the book! I love a book that you just can't put down then. One that will keep you up until three a.m.
There is a few things I have done it my life I would do over different if I had the chance. I would change a few thing in my life! We all make bad choices in life sometime and would like to change them.
Oh wow my mind draws a blank on the name of a book with a child, but then again Audrea and the Maveric by Elaine Levine had several children in it! On of them was very special. I loved this book it was a great read! I have also read several Intrigue books with children! I guess I just don't think much about the children because they are a part of the life cycle!
I usually average about 5 or 6 books a month! I love Susan Crandall's books. My top pick for the month was Audrea and the Maveric by Elaine Levine and then I re-read her book Rachel and the Hired Gun. I loved these two books. Then again I have been hooked on the Romatic Western's lately.
I don't have either right now! I think I would be more a cat person but I like both. We can't have a cat because son has an alergia to them. To me cats seem to keep theirselfs clean and you don't have to walk them because they will use a litter box. They do like to set in you lap and be patted. They just seem to be more calm.
I love reading new authors to me and you named some great ones! If you like western romances I discover Elaine Levine last year! I have always been a big fan of Constance O'Banyon I have read all of her books. Donna McMeans and Anna Campbell also great authors
I can keep a secret if I think it should be kept. There are times when it is best to keep the secret reather then hurting someone. Your books sound fantastic and I can't wait to read one. I love a good mystery!
I watched GWTH right before Christmas, great movie! Yes we all love out babies! There is just nothing like going and visiting the new babies at the hospital! This book sounds fabulous and I can't wait to read it!
Great giveaway! I have a friend that would love this book. She has had it rough this past year. Of course there is a lot of people this way right now. I just think she would love it and she has always been there for me.
You name it I have probably done it some time in the kitchen! I have cooked for years but I still screw up all the time. Like let thing boil dry on water and burn them to the kettle, bad mess to clean up. One time I caught a cookie on fire and threw it on the counter yep let a hugh burn spot on the counter. One time my girlfriend and I made cup cakes to take to school and cooked them the same amount of time you would cook a cake. We put frosting on the burnt cup cakes and took them to school anyways.
Hi Anna, I love the tortured hero's, my favorite. I have a lot of favorites and its just to hard to pick one, even down to Rhett Buttler! I can't wait to read your new book, because you write some awesome tortured hero's yourself!
Oh I remember going to grandma's on Thanksgiving, she had huge meals. She had about 50 grandchildren so we are talking huge dinners. I cook a dinner for my family now and we have about 12 people for these dinners, a big differents. Families are just not as big now as they use to be.
I totally understand what you are saying. I am a book person myself, but I want that book in my hand. I don't want an e-book. I have to have that paper in my hand. Maybe I am wrong by being this way but I like the feel of those pages on paper. I guess I don't like change.
I also travel in my books so I like a pretty good discription, but to much just gets boring sometimes. So I guess there is a fine line at being to much! If it gets to be to much I just kind of skim over it.
I would read them some of the older books are awesome reads, they are a little different then today but good just the same. You may want to switch for an old to a new and then maybe you could catch up, on both.
I guess my favorite holiday food would be turkey and home made dumplings. Favorite movie would be The Holiday, favorite christman was when my whole family was together with our mother and father, which has been many years ago. My brother was in and my mother and father and brother was still with us. They are all gone now. All I have left is two sisters and we still get together for the holidays.
I do my reading at night on the recliner couch. If hubby is watching TV I put ear plugs in, because I don't want to be disturbed. I really get into the book. If it is really good I may set up until three in the morning. I always have a drink beside me and it I need anything else I will get up and get it.
I don't watch TV interviews very often, I have to much to do. I don't watch TV much anyways. I think I could get into something like this with my favorite authors. My spair time I try to get reading in.
I like the strong heroines, that know what they want and they can get by without a man to help them. Sometimes in my books I become that heroine. Yes there is not much I can't do if I set my mind to it.
I have noticed that my self. Most of the time this doesn't bother me, but sometimes you think your getting something different and your reading the same thing. When this happens I get in a reading slump.
I can't say I am afraid of spiders but I don't want them around. I don't like snakes at all. No an alligator I would be afraid of for sure. I just don't live where they live, maybe if you lived close to them they would bother you as much. I think I would reather just stay away from them
I try to catch up on yard work Do some major cleaning in house and outside. Catch up on some reading. Do some quilting. My list can go on and on, because I always have a lot to do, just making myself do it is the problem.
Hey we all have voices in our heads from time to time, but we don't always listen to them. I enjoy movies made from books but the books are usualy better then the movies. I haven't read this series but I think I would enjoy it.
I don't think I really started reading myself until I was a young teenager. I just wasn't into it until then. Now I read daily. I read to escape into my own little world. In reading I get to visit places that I have never been to before and will never get to visit. You can go everywhere in a book, even back in time. I love it!
I love book covers. I can't say I buy the book for the cover, but they have some really cool ones. I am real big into the historical covers, I love seeing a big castle in the back gound. The cover is what catches my eye to make me pick up that books and read the blurp on the back. I buy the book because of the author, blurp, and what the book is about. But I do love my covers.
Another thing I would change is I went to school a few years back to change my career. I chose the wrong thing because both jobs I had in the new career I hated. It also didn't pay much, so that didn't help at all.
I just wanted to say I loved your stories in Give Me A Texan and Give Me A Cowboy they were awesome reads. One thing I would have changed in life was I would have went to college and had a different career, while I was young enough to enjoy it, and I would have traveled more.
I am not sure where I got my love of reading. My mother wasn't a reader, but father was. MY older sister is a reader too. Maybe thats where it all came from. I know that I read Gone With the Wind and I was hooked.
I have the love hate relationship with exercise and I am really having problems getting into it this year. I like the light paranormals the best. Sometimes the dark ones are over done. A little touch of magic does a lot for a book.
I not sure what I would to transform into, but there has been a time or two that I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall so I would know what was being said in a few meetings. It would be nice to be a cat and get loved on all the time.
Hi Sharon, I have been reading about Ravenous on a lot of blogs lately and it sounds like a great read. I also e-mail authors pretty often to let them know that I enjoyed their books. I used to think you guys wouldn't have time to mess with a lot of e-mails but I have found out that author really enjoy hearing from their readers. Oh the wonders of the internet to let us keep in touch with our authors.
Hi Emily, I love this quote that your put at the end of your post, I am going to have to remember this one!‘A man will dispute it with his dying breath, but in his secret heart, he lives to be deceived.’ Oh so true!
I don't have small children but my son has been on the internet sense he was about nine years old and we mostly just supervised him for a few year, but he does fine now.
I have found out when I don't have internet its like I lost my best friend. We have been without power for the past three days due to a winter storm and just got the power back tonight. The first thing we did was start up out computers.
