#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller
Friday. Again.

If you have a Kindle or the Kindle app, check out this FREE ebook, which features an excerpt from my next book, ONCE A RANCHER, along with a sampling of some other Western romances.  The link is below.  There was a picture, too, but somehow, I made it go away.   :)

I completed a special project this week, and I’m taking it easy all weekend.  As easy as Tule and Mowgli will allow, that is.  :)  Now that Tule is feeling better, I’ve got a couple of cute little marauders on my hands.  And I feel so lucky.

I’ve listened to some more good audiobooks this week, too.  I highly recommend: “Moon Over Manifest”, by Clare Vanderpool, and “Firefly Cloak”, by Sheri Reynolds.  Both are wonderful, well-written books.

Here’s wishing you a great weekend.

Winners and Rainy Tuesdays

This week’s winners are: Patricia Pelkey and Laverne Ray.  Congratulations to both of you; your autographed books will be on their way pronto.  The new round is underway, and you can enter by simply posting a comment.  Two winners will be chosen at random, and posted here next Monday.  Or Tuesday.  :)

Oh, this spring weather.  Yesterday was gloriously sunny, but quite cold.  Today, we’ve had lots of rain.  I just imagine it soaking down into the ground, raising last year’s very low water tables to normal levels.  After last summer’s wildfires and ongoing drought, we’re mighty grateful for a good, steady rain.  

I’ve been writing most of the day, and now that I’m finished, Button and I are at my laptop on the kitchen table, composing this blog.  He’s not much help.  :)

I’ve listened to several audiobooks over the past few days–just discovered a new (to me) author, Joshilyn Jackson.  I started with her new novel, “The Opposite of Everyone”, and when  I finished listening to that, I went looking for more.  So far, my favorite has been “Backseat Saints”, which is definitely the kind of story that keeps a person listening long after the ‘stop’ button should have been pressed.  

The dogs are thriving, though Tule is still on medication and has to go back to the vet’s for another blood test, just to be sure the antibiotics have done their job.  He’s like a different dog, running and playing the wolf game with Mowgli, in other words, pretending they’re wild and vicious beasts, fighting to the death in the wilderness.  Instead, they’re play biting, and its comical to watch the contortions they go through.  Mowgli is trouble looking for a place to happen, but he’s also the sweetest, most tender-hearted little critter, so eager to be loved.  I’m so glad these two little guys decided to rescue me.

From the end of the Civil War until 1890, some 10 million head of cattle were driven from Texas to Kansas.
