#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Cross Your Fingers

My friend Josanne Lovick, who produced my book, “The Last Chance Cafe” for Lifetime a few years ago, is pitching several of my projects to the Hallmark Channel tomorrow–“The Man from Stone Creek” is among them, along with “A Stone Creek Christmas”–Olivia O’Ballivan’s story.  It would be wonderful to see these stories made into movies.

On the writing front, I’m making progress, but it’s slow going.  All I can say is, I’m going deep with these characters and their story.

“The Creed Legacy” came out yesterday–too early to tell how it’s doing, but after “A Creed in Stone Creek” and “Creed’s Honor”, anything could happen.  I try to stay Zen about these things but, since I’m a Gemini, this often proves to be a challenge.  :)

Our weather has been great, if somewhat temperamental.  I guess that’s life on Planet Earth.  :) 

I’m reading “The Memory Palace” on my Nook–still fascinated.  Since I love memoirs, I’ve downloaded several new ones just recently, both on the Nook and the iPod.  My old iPod finally bit the dust, so I sprung (sprang?) for a new one, an iTouch.  It’s all synced and works like a charm.  And it is very interesting to compare it to my last two iPod classics, which I saved to use for storage.  The device is progressively slimmer with each new incarnation–oh to be progressively slimmer myself–barely thicker than a credit card.  I finished the Churchill history–I never get tired of those people.  Like Lincoln, Winston Churchill was a tower of strength and determination, even though he suffered terribly from chronic depression.  Last night, I broke in the new gadget with a comedic memoir, the name of which escapes me.  I’ll fill you in later.  :)   

It’s time to make more coffee, journal a little, and get on with the day.  Sadie beagle is sleeping soundly nearby, as is usual for her in the mornings.  (And the afternoons, evenings, and nights.)

I hope you have a great day.

    Last month I stumbled upon the McKettrick's of Texas and loved all three. So, of course, I had to start at the beginning with High Country Bride. I've laid out a reading order have been reading about all the McKettrick's, O'Ballivans, Yarbros and Creeds. I just finished Dylan's and now diving into Tyler's story. Keep up the good work!
