#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller
All the News That’s Fit to Blog

“McKettrick’s Luck” is still hanging in there on the bestseller lists–holding at #8 on the New York Times and selling strongly. With all this excitement, it’s hard to settle down and work on the project at hand. Especially when people are digging wells and using nail guns and a variety of other construction type things. Bernicie is not a fan of construction, and neither am I, so we’ll be retreating soon, with Sadie-bean, to the lake house. (Trust me, it is hard to write with a panicked Yorkie clinging to your shoulder with tiny front paws!)

Lest you think I’m complaining, I hasten to say that I’m NOT. A beautiful new barn will come out of all this, and the horses will be able to come home. The floors will be beautiful and Yorkie proof.

It’s hectic, but it’s certainly worth it.

And the book will get written–they always do.

Life is What Happens…

When you’re trying to: write a book, renovate your house, build a barn. You fill in the blanks.

Yesterday, I didn’t even get to this blog, because I was in a meeting for most of the day. We accomplished a lot, but STILL. You don’t know how REALLY glad I am that meetings are not a regular part of my day.

Since the barn-building and the renovations are only going to get MORE hectic, Sadie, Bernice and I will be moving to the lake house soon. The kitties will be happier staying right here; they do not like road trips.

On a career front, “McKettrick’s Luck” is doing amazingly well, and excitement is building because it soon “McKettrick’s Pride” will be available, too. February 27 is the big day.

That’s what’s happening in the world of Linda Lael Miller. It’s all good.

If I just remember to breathe….

“Keep your ear to the ground” referred to the practice of plainsmen listening to the ground to hear hoof beats. It became the westerner’s warning to stay alert.
