A Place Called Harmony



 

Welcome Jodi Thomas.

Thank you for stopping by to tell us about your latest release A Place Called Harmony.

I’m excited about the release of A PLACE CALLED HARMONY. The story has been in the back of my mind since I started writing the Harmony series.  Often I thought about what how my people in the present were affected by the past.  To have a town where people care about each other and understand one another, the roots needed to run deep.  I felt like I knew the three men who settled the town long before I wrote their story.

When Truman, Matheson and McAllen’s stories began to dance in my mind, I found myself staying up later every night to write more.  I love the way the three men interacted and the way all three loves storied grew.  I have a feeling that readers will be staying up a little later to read one more chapter.

All three men were prepared for the challenge of building a town but unprepared for the depth of love they found as they build their families.

I loved writing these men and I hope the readers will...

Greetings from Leanne Tyler

BecauseofRebeccablogweb.jpg (150×225)

It’s great to be at the Scratching Post today. I’m Leanne Tyler and I will be attending the Destiny Blaine Workshop and Reader Rally in Kingsport, TN, October 8-12.  I write sweet, yet sometimes sensual southern romances in both historical and contemporary. I will be bringing with me print copies of the following books to the book signing on October 9th:  Because of Rebecca (American historical set in 1858 Jackson, MS) and The Good Luck series (The Good Luck Charm, The Good Luck Spell & The Good Luck Potion) my sweet romantic comedy series set in Fountain City (a suburb of Knoxville).  Look me up if you are going to be at the Country Club Bar and Grill in Bristol and maybe you can wrangle a swag pack from me or my good friend Lexi Witcher (who writes YA Paranormal).

The latest Thriller OUTCAST Ops by Rick Chesler

Rick Chestler's latest novel is out and ready for thriller lovers everywhere.
 
OUTCAST Ops: The Poseidon Initiative: 

During a terrifying break-in at a marine laboratory, a European-North African terror group makes off with a large quantity of deadly nerve agent. Demands are made and large-scale attacks are launched in the United States from coast to coast. 

Enter O.U.T.C.A.S.T. (Operational Undertaking To Counteract Active Stateside Threats)--six ex-operatives from six of America’s most powerful organizations. Each has been unceremoniously released by their respective former employer for alleged misdoings that leave their pride wounded but their essential skill-sets untouched. After uniting over their shared bond of dismissal from the nation’s most elite outfits, the disgruntled spooks can now work together like never before to take down threats to their beloved country, a country that branded them as outcasts but needs them now more than ever. 

When the President of the United States becomes a target of the terror group while hosting a party on his yacht, OUTCAST is hell-bent on showing America that their way isn't the best way--it's the only way.

News from Susan Lyons

I’m happy that my fourth Caribou Crossing Romance, Stand by Your Man, has now been released. I hope readers are enjoying the story of two imperfectly—or is that perfectly?—matched RCMP officers.

Any moment now I should be getting page proofs for Love Me Tender, which will come out on December 2. I’ve also finished (in draft) Love Somebody Like You and it’s with critiquers right now.

Also, the Brazilian (Portuguese) edition of the first title, Caribou Crossing, is now available, titled Um Amor Perfeito. I hope Brazilian readers enjoy this series. I’ve loved receiving their comments on my Fallon sisters (Wild Ride to Love) books.

As you may be aware, I’ve been publishing mini volumes of sweet short contemporary romances in my Sweet Indulgences series. At the end of 2013, my plan was to publish one volume each month over the course of 2014 and yes, volume 7 is now available. It sure reminds me that the year is more than half over!

In contest news, Home on the Range finaled in the Wisconsin RWA Write Touch, and Dare to be Dirty  received a HOLT Medallion Award of Merit.

And in contest news of another sort,...

Memorial Day

As a daughter of a Pearl Harbor Survivor, Firefighter, and amazing father I was taught from the very beginning to be proud to be American and to appreciate all that those who have served this country--the ones with us who protect us as we sit and enjoy our lives and those who have passed.

Thank you...

The Blue Street Journal's Photo
 
Memorial Day was started by former slaves on May, 1, 1865 in Charleston, SC to honor 257 dead Union Soldiers who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for 2 weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 Black children where they marched, sang and celebrated.

Thanks to Abstrakt Goldsmith for this nugget of history that most of us never learned in school.

More Luscious Tips from Dr. Charley

More ideas to spice up your life.  

Two wonderful suggestions to try now that spring is in the air. 

 

Today, get a little daring!

Enhance your senses by using a blindfold. Allow your body to absorb the delicate feel of your lover’s touch. Inhale their scent and notice how your body reacts to it. Explore their taste on your tongue. Listen to their voice as they whisper in your ear.  

Take a walk or sit outside and allow yourself to feel the elements around you. Notice how your body reacts to them.  Hold your arms out and feel the breeze against your skin. How it plays with your hair. How it brushes against you.  This is the start of your sensuality. Feeling everything around you, on you, against you.

  

I know, some of you are sitting there shaking your head at the first suggesting saying to yourself ... I am not using a blindfold. Okay, that 's fine. Just close your eyes, and do it that way.

What?

You always close your eyes? Ha, then do it with your eyes open. Watch what your partner is doing and how they react to everything around...
