Amelia C. Adams is the author of
twenty-five sweet Western romance novels, the mother of four children, and the
eater of chocolate cake and tacos. Many tacos. Too many tacos to count. Because
cheese. And meat. Meat and cheese.
She has hit the Amazon bestseller list
three times and has the screenshots to prove it. Even though she’s only been publishing Westerns for two years, she plans to do it forever and ever, or
until the cows come home, whichever happens first. She credits her own pioneer
heritage for this new interest, and is glad that she doesn’t have to wear
twelve petticoats to be considered modest.

A transplanted Scot, Margery now lives on a lake in Canada.
Although she grew up as far away from the old west as possible, she’s always had a love affair
with the men and women who settled the untamed land west of the Mississippi.
Glued to TV westerns like Maverick, Rawhide and Gunsmoke, and reading stories
of Annie Oakley, Roy Rogers and Rin Tin Tin, it was only natural that when she started writing, she wrote what she loved to watch and read. When she’s not writing or travelling in search of the perfect setting for her next novel, you can usually find her wielding a pair of knitting needles or a pool cue.

“Five brand-new sweet
Western novellas by five of your favorite authors!
Mail Order Miller by
Kirsten Osbourne
No one wants to employ
Doris Miller, and no man is interested in her. Traveling two-thousand miles
across country to marry a stranger may seem strange to some, but it’s the
answer to her troubles.
Harvey Butler’s children
are the scourge of the town of Salmon, Oregon. When one of the women of the
town insists he needs a bride, he’s certain he could never find someone willing
to marry him. When he receives a response from Doris Miller, he’s convinced it
will be a marriage of convenience, and they will simply coexist. Will Doris be
able to change his mind about his future?
The Risk and the Reward by
Amelia C. Adams
Sybil James has worked her
way up and is now employed as the ladies’ maid for Lady Douglas, a wealthy
woman of distinction. When Lady Douglas decides to travel to America to visit
her son, she gives the girl a chance to see the world and experience things she
could only dream about before.
Grant Douglas is enjoying
his life as an American businessman, all the while knowing that he’ll
eventually return to England to run the family estate. Circumstances force his
hand early and he must drop everything to set things to rights–one of those
things being the stewardship of a lovely young ladies’ maid who finds herself
without a home.
Two very different worlds
collide . . . two hearts must decide what it is they most want.

Lincoln Bass returns to
Flat Rock Point, Arkansas a year after the accident that almost cost his life.
His former employer has asked him for help at the lumber mill. He is

paths with the most delectable, yet bewildering female he’s ever encountered.
In His Thoughts by Peggy
L. Henderson
Assigned to a position in
the newly formed Yellowstone National Park, life seems like it couldn’t get any
better for Ben Ferguson. But patrolling for poachers is fraught with danger,
and he soon finds his future looking bleak. Images of a blue-eyed guardian
angel are the only thing he has to pull him from the edge of death.
Crazy. Worthless.
Demon-possessed. Clara Youngblood has been labeled many things by people who
cannot understand the challenges she must confront every day within her own
mind. When all seems dark, a glimmer of hope appears in the form of a retired
soldier.
Ben and Clara wouldn’t
have chosen the circumstances that brought them together, but they soon
discover their importance in rescuing each other.
The High Stakes Bride by
Margery Scott
Chloe Taggart has one
goal—to leave Rocky Ridge as soon as possible and see the world. She has no
intention of ever being under a man’s thumb, and she has no desire to spend her
life cooking and cleaning when she could be sailing the Pacific or touring
ancient Greek ruins.
Even though Austin Hayward
is content with his life on his ranch, it would be perfect if he had a wife to
share it with. Unfortunately, there is only one woman he’s interested in
marrying—Chloe Taggart. Chloe and Austin have known each other for years, but
she’s never looked at him as anything more than a friend.
When Chloe’s father loses
his diner to Austin in a poker game, Austin makes her a proposition—her father
will get his diner back, and Austin will get Chloe.”

The Risk and the Reward by Amelia C. Adams
 
Random
Facts:
1.     I absolutely have to check
my email first thing in the morning. It’s a compulsion—if I don’t do it, I
can’t function.
2.     I tend to write all my
books at the very last second. I don’t know why. I keep trying to get more
organized . . . it hasn’t worked yet.
3.     Yes, I have worn my bonnet
in public, and not just on Halloween. Bonnet likes outings.
4.     Ice water is the most
perfect beverage ever. With lots and lots of ice.
5.     I would rather take naps
than almost anything else in the world.
 Snippet:
 
Mr. Withers sat across from them, a
stack of papers spread out for easy access. He first read all the parts of the
will that pertained to Grant, and then he read the parts that pertained to
Sybil. He then took an envelope, passed it across the table to Sybil, and
advised her to visit the bank after leaving his office.
“You deducted the money spent on me
in America, I’m sure?” Sybil asked as she tucked the envelope into her
reticule.
“Actually, I’d like you to consider
your time in America as a gift from me,” Grant said. He felt terrible about
everything that had happened, and if he could ease his conscience in any way,
he would do it.
She turned to him with eyes of fire.
“I beg your pardon?”
“Please, it’s a gift. You deserve the
full sum of your inheritance.”
She sat up a little straighter. “Do
you mean to tell me that I’m to consider the clothing and the stay in the
Palace Hotel a gift? Lord Douglas, that might be one of the most offensive
things anyone has ever said to me. No respectable woman, whether high bred or
low, would accept such personal things from a man. It’s insulting and
demeaning.” She pulled the envelope back out and tossed it at him. “I
respectfully request that you remove the appropriate amount of money from that
envelope, sir.”
Grant was thoroughly taken aback.
“Honestly, Sybil, I had no idea—”
“Miss James will suit, Lord Douglas.”
Her voice was so cold and her eyes were so hard, he had no reasonable choice
but to open the envelope and withdraw some of the money. He couldn’t remember
all the sums, so he made a guess and passed the envelope back to her. “Thank
you. Now I believe I’ll be on my way.”

Danette Hansen talks about ghost and genealogy

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014
Danette, tell us where you were born and where do you live now?
I was born in Alamosa, Colorado. I have an older sister and a younger brother so I guess that means I’m the middle child.
I now live in Wellsville, Utah with my husband and four children. I’ve never cared for snow, ever. When I left Colorado I said I never wanted to live in an area with heavy snow again. Well let’s just say, I’ve learned to Never Say Never. I do love living in Cache Valley––except when it snows.
No really, the area is beautiful and it’s a great place to raise a family.
🙂 What makes you passionate writing about genealogy?
That is a funny one for me, I don’t know much about genealogy unlike my mother who is a family history consultant. That is why my main character, Annaliese, is portrayed the way she is.
She is more into Plant Research instead of Family Research. Her mother (more…)

Tami Rasel and her ghost stories are visiting my blog

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Tami, what is your typical day like?

If I’m working on a novel, I spend a great deal of the day writing. If I am not working on a current novel (I take breaks at times) I love to spend my time reading. Stephen King in his book, On Writing, stated the following: “If you don’t have time to read, then you don’t have time to write.” I agree—reading is a very important part of the writing process. Other than that, I’m a typical housewife and mother with many responsibilities.

Many of us do…Do you write with music or not?

I enjoy music, but I’m not talented in that area at all. I am a storyteller.

Good for you. Do you outline your manuscript first?

It depends on whether it is fiction or nonfiction. Though I rarely write nonfiction, I do use an outline. I used an outline to write “Spirits of Gettysburg, Tales of a Ghost Tour Guide” because it is a collection of short stories. When I’m writing fiction, I do not use an outline. I don’t like the constraints. I like to let the story take me where it wants to go. I of course have an idea of where it is headed, but I won’t tie myself down, often times along the way, the story takes a turn I didn’t expect.

Isn’t that fun? What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Though I enjoy helping others, a lot of people approach me and want me to read their manuscript, or, they want to know how to get their book published. Reading their manuscript is time-consuming and I hate (more…)

Anne Bradshaw Author of “True Miracles” (interview)

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Hello Anne Bradshaw is a pleasure to have you with us today. Tell us what is your current book and how would you describe it?

“True Miracles with Genealogy~Help from Beyond the Veil.” Compiling it was an amazing experience. “True Miracles” is a collection of inspiring research stories, spiritual moments as help comes from beyond the veil. It is unique, comforting, and powerful.

How and when did you gather stories for this book?

I put out requests for stories on many social websites, including Facebook. Genealogists from all over the USA and from other countries responded. It amazed me to read of the many different ways researchers received the help they needed. As someone says in the book, “Heaven is only a whisper away.” (more…)
