Is it Time to Change What I Write

 


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
Oh my gosh! Can you believe it’s the end of June! Where has the time gone? Half of 2022 is behind us! Wow!
I know for me, the month of June went by so quickly. I did get to visit with my critique partner which was so wonderful and I’ve spent the time since then trying to catch up at the day job (I have one of those positions that never stops, never takes a breath, but it’s all good because I love what I do)!
What else have I been doing? Well, writing. Not as much as I want to or as much as I need to, but I’m plodding along. I’m a slow but steady writer with occasional bursts of mania thrown in for excitement (which has yet to show up with my current story).
And I’m submitting two of my finished manuscripts and yes, they are historical westerns, which, if I’m being totally honest, are a hard sell to the traditional (and not so traditional) publishers out there. I admit to wracking up my fair shares of “Thank You But No Thank You”s (and yes, I had forgotten how that feels). I was fortunate enough to have the same publisher for my last five books and I loved them, but as so often happens in this business, they were bought by someone bigger. But I digress…
Considering all the rejections I’ve been receiving, I’ve wondered if I should be writing something else (like Regencies, but seriously, where would I begin?). As yet, I haven’t come up with a single idea, but I really do believe that’s because I love my westerns! I love the cowboys, the lawmen with the shiny stars pinned to their chests who have a definite sense of right and wrong, the sassy saloon girls with their hearts of gold, the ranch owners who have sacrificed to keep what they love and all the rest. It’s a love affair between me and my westerns, but maybe….just maybe….there’s room for something different…
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Not You, It's Me by Julie Johnson

 It's great when you hear a woman using the line "It's not you, it's me" instead of the man.  Gemma Sommers is well acquainted with saying that.  She doesn't believe love is a real emotion that she can attain after many pathetic dating experiences.

Such as at the beginning of her story, she's dating her apartment neighbor who can barely pay attention to her.

This is evident when Mr. Gorgeous, Chase Croft, saves her on screen with a smothering, in a good way, kiss.  Her boyfriend is standing right next to her and doesn't even notice, by the way.  The rest of Boston sees it.


Gemma has a creative job at an art gallery where she sells exclusive art.  Her apartment is small and full of color just as she wants it.  Her funds are low, but she's pleased with her lifestyle.

Chase has a different type of problem.  His bank account is exploding, woman love him, and his penthouse is spacious.  He thinks he doesn't have room for the right woman, yet he seeks out Gemma as his art consultant.

Sounds easy for them to fall in love, but Gemma is short on the trust theory and Chase has a meddling family and doubts of his own ability to run his business and treat Gemma in the way she deserves.

It's a fun read as the insecurities of each are hashed out, thrown against the wall, and hope to reach the finish line in a compatible manner!

Happy reading,

Dawn

A Wonderful Visit

 


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
Oh my gosh! I had such a wonderful visit with my critique partner and her DH. I was pampered and allowed to relax (such a difference from my day-to- day life, where relaxing is done at the end of the when I just can’t do anymore).
As I suspected, there wasn’t much writing getting done, but that’s okay. It was a wonderful opportunity to just sit and chat (about books, our current stories, and those that will be written in the near future, and so many other things. There was never a lack of something to talk about). Although we Zoom chat every week, there’s just something so special about seeing someone you absolutely adore across the table from you.
We did have some adventures and that was great. We went to the beach and I swam in the Gulf of Mexico (first time ever). It was a little different than swimming in the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean. There were no waves (like I kinda expected), but the water was warm and about as perfect as it could be.
We saw a pod of dolphins (there were about twelve of them) playing in the near distance when we went to Cedar Key. To me, a desert dweller, that was a bit other-worldly. Seeing something like that on television is so much different than seeing it in person. I was thrilled!  
We watched a couple movies and preceded to critique them as well as try to figure out the Big Black Moment and the resolution. That was fun and kept us in practice even if we didn’t write very much (I did try, but it was a dismal failure).
I even made friends with her cats (well, one of them at least—the other wasn’t quite sure of me) which is saying something. Yes, I am fond of cats, but I am a devoted dog mom.
I’m home now. Back to the nitty-gritty of the day job and keeping house and all the rest of it, but it was so lovely to take a few days and just…relax and enjoy myself with excellent company! Thanks so much for having me!
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

The Duchess and the Highwayman by Beverley Oakley

 The early eighteen hundreds in Norfolk, England is rough on the young ladies.

Phoebe may be known as Lady Drummond, but she isn't treated like a lady.  Her ailing husband, Ulrick, has abused her and left her for his cousin, Wentworth, to create an heir before Ulrick dies.

Ulrick's death is surprisingly fast and gruesome leaving Pheobe to run from an upcoming accusation.  She acts as a maid and runs without money, direction, or any hope of survival.

An alleged highway man, Hugh Redding, saves her from Wentworth who is pounding down on his horse within a stone's throw.


No one can know she's really Lady Drummond.  Not even the man with crystal blues eyes who takes her to his rented cabin.

Hugh and Phoebe are honest about their ambitions in taking Wentworth down, each for strong reasons.  Their true identities are kept deep in their pockets even as their hands begin to roam over each other.

A few details may make it hard for Hugh and Phoebe to keep their idyllic dreams a part of the future.  Let's see if they can make their way past the hidden truths and the law chasing Phoebe and make the rest of their lives a happily-ever-after.

Happy reading,

Dawn

A New Adventure

 


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
So, by the time you read this, I will be winging my way across country to spend a long weekend with fellow writer and extraordinary critique partner, Lexi Post. It’s been a while since I’ve seen her and her DH (whom I’m very fond of as well).
I am so looking forward to this trip! There’s so much to talk about, to catch up on (even though we talk on a regular basis, but there’s something different when it’s face to face as opposed to Zoom).
Of course, we’ll be talking books and writing and our latest projects (and everything else under the sun). We’re like a pair of magpies, hardly taking a moment to breath during conversations (and I so love this!). We’re also going to hit the beach (and I can’t wait….it’s been a long time since I’ve been to the beach!).
I do plan on getting some writing done in the mornings (because that’s my usual writing time), but mostly, we’ll be visiting. I’m so excited!
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

A Ruin of Roses by K.F. Breene

 Danger is all around.

The curse put on a kingdom and surrounding villages cannot be broken.  Well, there is a way.

Finley has her own way to help her village sustain life.  She sneaks into the Forbidden Forest to find the elusive herb that holds back the deadly curse.  Her crusade must be done at night and in the shadows of the Beast.


The Beast, dragon-shifter unable to use all powers, guards his kingdom of leftover shifters cursed into the life of continual sexual desires as their only pastime.  Nyfain has little to keep the curse of his kingdom at bay, yet capturing the strong-willed intruder gives him hope of some sort.

Always wary of her surroundings, Finley doesn't back down to Nyfain, but rather tells him exactly what she thinks of him and his disgusting lifestyle.  

A few lenient breaks in her imprisonment, shows a different man and Beast of Nyfain.  She could almost care about him.  But not so fast, he has to prove himself.

Nyfain is spellbound by this daring minx and her steadfastness for her village's wellbeing.  Maybe they can work together on this curse cast to all.

A little loving may be what the last potion needs for the curse and the romance!

Happy reading,

Dawn

I Ain't Down Yet


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
I did it. Took my heart in my hands, offered up a silent prayer, and submitted Wife For Hire AND The Maverick and Miss Miller to several publishers. So far, I’ve received three Thank You But No Thank You’s (these were not my first rejections, but still, you know, your confidence kinda takes a hit). Not saying I thought someone would accept Wife For Hire the first time out, but there’s always that little spark of hope someone will love it like I do (I have not heard anything on The Maverick and Miss Miller yet, but I’m sure I will).
So, how am I dealing with the rejections? Well, first, I beat myself up a little bit (because that’s what I do…asking myself “Are you out of your mind? You weren’t ready! The manuscript, query, or synopsis weren’t ready either! You could have done better!). And after I shut my inner critic up, which wasn’t easy (she sounds very much like Meryl Streep, whom I adore as an actress, in the movie The Devil Wears Prada), I consoled myself with a heart-to-heart talk with some dear (and very supportive) friends, then fell into a carboholic’s dream coma (my carbs are restricted right now; however, carbs are the first thing I reach for when I’m feeling this way). Had some chocolate, too!  
After the scale spoke to me in a very condescending voice this morning (yes, like Meryl Streep again) and another heart-to-heart with my fantastic critique partner, I’m back to pounding the pavement, so to speak, and just sent off Wife For Hire to another publisher. What can I say? As the great Debbie Reynolds sang in the movie The Unsinkable Molly Brown, “I Ain’t Down Yet! 
Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Beautiful Russian Monster (A Vancouver Mafia Romance) by Odette Stone

 Her grandfather, a shipping tycoon, is missing, and Blaire is kidnapped by a frightful Russian man.  What else can go wrong?

Viktor has a mission, different than his former position in the Russian Mafia, but somewhat the same.  He needs to be stealthy and better than his opponent because there are no "ties" in this game.  


In order to save his tight friends, Viktor steals Blaire who is supposed to have the answers he needs.  If she can help him find her grandfather, he can save his friends.  Quite a mess of steps to get to the end of the maze.

Constant action, bad timing, luck, and ingenuity not only reveals clues to the end, but a bond between the captor and captured.  

Viktor has no use for a needy woman in the future and Blaire can't imagine this ruthless man as anyone who could have compassion.  Little by little, they work together to get what they want, which may include a first date...

Yea!  

Happy reading,

Veronica Reviews - WYATT'S WAY by Lexi Post

 

Wyatt's Way
(Last Chance #7)
by Lexi Post

5 Stars

★★★★★

“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
—Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland



Welcome to Last Chance Ranch. A working ranch set up to care for rescued and abused horses, and for Wyatt Ford, perhaps a second chance at finding a place to call home…

If you’ve been following this series, you’re in for a much-welcomed return to familiar characters from the past. But if this is your first visit to Last Chance, pull up a chair and get ready to fall head over heals over Wyatt and Alyssa’ story.

Wyatt’s Way is a roller coaster of a romance full of witty banter, past turmoil, and smexxy new beginnings. Lexi Post has an amazing talent for brining her characters to life within the written word, and I always look forward to her next read!

Loved and highly recommend!

Sharing what I love, 

Veronica

Secrets Hidden in the Glass by Cate Beauman

 Callie Davis wants nothing more than a way out of her rich life created by world renowned glass art.  Amazing that a gift of talent can result in anxiety and the need to flee.

Leaving the glam of Manhattan, Callie rents a cabin on a quiet, touristy island in Massachusetts.  Maybe she'll get her muse for art back or disappear into a world she's not known.


Her new landlord is more than a plumber who fixes her sink but also the town sheriff.  She can't get around Carter Island without his influence.  Nate Carter is either related to or knows everyone.  He wants to get to know the beautiful visitor.

Couldn't imagine a couple getting along any better at first sight.  Yet, Callie has secrets from her childhood that keep appearing in her attempts at art and to fit in with the locals.  She's leery of getting into a relationship as she digs for answers of her past.

Which, might I add, would be the perfect tension in the romance, but that strain is missing in the story.  Nate has no reason to not pursue their relationship, and Callie constantly decides it's okay to continue.

I love a good relationship, although in a story I want to be on the edge of my sofa wondering how they're going to make it work.  Callie's origins and job are up in the air, but not her romantic feelings.  Nate cannot imagine letting Callie out of his arms, even with her unknowns and former lifestyle.  

The romance is solid, but if you're interested in answers to the side problems, it's an enjoyable read.

Happy reading,

Dawn

Wyatt's Way

(Last Chance #7)

by Lexi Post

After the loss of his grandfather, Wyatt Ford is homeless and rudderless when he lands at Last Chance Ranch with the last of their horses. His mood is anything but pleasant, so when he inadvertently hurts the feelings of the sweetest woman in town, he’s determined to make it up to her. But she has a backbone, which attracts his full attention, and he finds himself willing to go the extra mile for her. That is, if she’ll let him.

Alyssa Parker, Ms. Parker to her third-grade students, has a strong moral compass, a strict code about only dating locals, and a goal to purchase her very own home. Her interest in Mr. Ford is fleetinguntil he comes to her rescue. Just when she thinks her cowboy hero seems too good to be true, she discovers his biggest fear, one that looms large between them.

Wyatt knows letting Alyssa go is the right thing to do for her, but it’s the worst move he could make for himself. It means tackling his past on his own. But even if he comes out a winner, what good will it do him if he’s lost the woman he loves?

Am I A Perfectionist?

 


        Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
I have a news flash….well, it isn’t a news flash to anyone who knows me well…I struggle with perfectionism (and yes, I do mean struggle). The words “it’s good enough” don’t enter into my vocabulary very much.
Here’s an example. I’ve been working on my query letter for The Maverick and Miss Miller, getting it ready for submission. It’s a short letter—only one page so how many times have I gone through it? Read it and tweaked it? So far, it’s twelve…and I’m still not happy with it. It’s not “perfect”.
Same thing with the synopsis. At last count, it’s eight…and I’m still tweaking. We’re not even going to talk about the manuscript itself. At this point, I can tell you there are no spelling mistakes, no missing words (because your brain will fill in what’s missing), no obvious, glaring grammar issues and I know it’s as clean and as well-written as I can make it so at what point do I say “yeah, they’re ready, just submit the darned thing”?
It’s the same with my work life. I struggle for that perfectionism knowing full well I’ll never achieve it…and still, I try. And try. And try. I hate making mistakes. It actually hurts my soul to do so. I'll read a report five or six times before I submit it. The same with important emails (and yet, I still manage to hit all my deadlines). 
This striving for perfection is in my home life, too. When I clean, I clean. It’s not a “spit and polish” like my mother always said, it’s full-bore, from top to bottom.
I think it goes back to my childhood and the lessons taught (one would think, at my age, I would have "tweaked" those lessons, but no, they're hard-wired now). “Always give 110 percent” and “A job worth doing is worth doing well”.
Okay, I’m ready. I’m just going to load everything up and hit that submit button! I’m going to do it. Right now…
No! Wait! Let me do just one more read through… 

Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Last Chance Series Books 1- 7 by Lexi Post

 

Last Chance Ranch, created for rescued horses, home of rescued hearts.

With Book 7, Wyatt's Way coming out next week, it's a great time to catch up on the first 6 books in the Last Chance series.

Christmas with Angel  #1

Trace's Trouble  #2

Fletcher's Flame  #3

Logan's Luck  #4

Dillon's Dare  #5

Riley's Rescue  #6

Wyatt's Way #7 available for preorder. Releases April 21st


Every character has their own special horse, but there are many more rescued horses that these cowboys and cowgirls care for. That they have caring hearts is obvious because of their work with horses, but getting those hearts to open up to their greatest potential is a challenge.

For Wyatt, he may overcome his past, but what good will it do him if he loses the woman he loves in the process? 

I hope you enjoy Last Chance Ranch 😊 

Always, Lexi

Troubled Blood by Robert Galbraith (JK Rowlings)

 Some books I love, and some I savor!  This I do both.

Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott bring suspense and the elusive romance in line throughout their mystery in London.

Strike (called by his last name due to constant mispronunciation of first) is a wounded war hero turned private investigator and hot as a sizzling iron.


  

He picks up a cold case of a former Playboy Bunny turned doctor with suspicious death circumstances.  His beautiful partner, Robin, is on the trail with him.  

Strike does his best to ignore the lurking emotional feeling he's experienced with Robin.  Not too hard most of the time since his aunt, like a mother to him, is dying and their caseload is maxed.  

Robin is doing the same, ignoring the attraction to Strike while she goes through a divorce along with extensive work hours.  

The cold case highlights former police inadequacies and a strange connection to tarot cards and astrology.  

Galbraith pulls the reader in as if you're living the story and can feel the energy expended with each dead end and lead in the case and romance.  I just hope that Strike and Robin figure it soon!

Happy reading,

Dawn

The Lost City

    

    Hello, gentle readers! Hope you are all well and staying safe!
    What shall we talk about today? There’s nothing really happening here (other than the usual stuff). I am still working on The Maverick & Miss Miller (actually finished ripping out and re-writing the last few chapters…it’s better I think). I did miss my self-imposed deadline, but I’m waiting for the new stuff to come back from critique.
        It’s been beautiful here in Arizona, but truthfully, I haven’t had much time to enjoy our beautiful weather…and that’s okay. I’d much rather finish this story (I have several others just waiting to be worked on).
        Oh, I know what I can talk about! The DH and I went to a movie. At a movie theatre! Something we haven’t done in a long (long, long) time. We saw The Lost City and I have to admit that I loved it. Reminded me of Romancing the Stone, which is a favorite movie of mine.
        The ticket price wasn’t too, too bad (I paid the senior price…when did I become a senior?!?!?) and the popcorn was just the way I like it (must have popcorn at the theatre though I shouldn’t have had as much as I did).

        If you’re a fan of Sandra Bullock, which I am (she looks fabulous, by the way, but then, she always looks fabulous), and a fan of Channing Tatum, which I am (OMG, Channing Tatum’s butt…need I say more?), by all means, see this movie. There’s physical comedy (if you’ve read my blogs before, then you know I’m a-pie-in-the-face, slip-on-a-banana-peel kinda gal), snappy dialogue (I’d heard a lot of the dialogue was ad-libbed), funny situations (did I mention Channing Tatum’s butt?), and a surprise appearance by Brad Pitt. I laughed. A lot. So did other people in the audience (particularly the guy who sat two rows away from me…he let out a couple pretty loud guffaws, which was funny in itself…his wife (I assume she was his wife) kept trying to shush him but he was having none of that.
        It was an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon and let me take a break from both the day job and the writing.
        Stay well! Stay safe! And remember to spread kindness wherever you go!

Things We Never Got Over by Lucy Score

 A delightful read as Naomi Witt runs far and fast at the last moment from the aisle and still wearing the white dress.

Always a planner, she has only one sense of direction toward her twin sister, Tina, in need of help, as always.  The only "twin" thing about the sisters is their looks.  Otherwise, her sister is a complete troublemaker and completely irresponsible.

Naomi arrives in Knockemout, Virginia and finds an unknown eleven-year-old niece, Waylay, waiting for her.  

No wedding, no money, no home, no job, and an abandoned niece.  What else can upset Naomi's planned existence?


Knockemout is a charming and tight community with the necessary coffee house to ease anxieties.

Knox Morgan owns the cafe plus a lot more in town, yet he's not a people person.  He makes it plainly clear when confronting the new girl in town.  He's a bad-boy biker with a hidden heart of gold.  He wants to keep that a secret and be left alone.

The funny thing is, Knox has it hard for Naomi, and she can't help but search for his good qualities.

The story is loaded with Knox attempting to secretly help Naomi, Naomi falling for Knox, Knox falling for her, and both holding back.  

As I read the love story, I wanted to tell them to "Quit being stubborn!", and "You're perfect for each other!".  Knox and Naomi will have to figure it out themselves as they didn't listen to me!

Happy reading,

Dawn
