#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Hello, Again!

First things first: today a new contest begins, right here on the blog.  2 winners will be chosen at random, from those who post a comment.  Each will receive an autographed copy of ONCE A RANCHER, after being notified by Super Jen.  Winners will be announced one week from today–watch this space!

Books, books, books!  I’ve been writing them, reading them, listening to them.  I can’t seem to get enough words–in fact, I’m surprised I don’t eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  That would surely help me in my ongoing Weight Watchers adventure.  :)  

What I’ve been writing: my long dreamed of Civil War novel, NORTH OF EDEN and the initial proposal for a new series, which I call The Painted Canyon trilogy, set outside (and sometimes in) the fictional town of Painted Canyon, Montana.  The title, which could change, is THE WAGER, and the story centers around Cord Hollister, a talented horse trainer, and the student he didn’t really want to teach, Shallie Fletcher.  I adore both these characters; I’ve loved spending time in their hearts and brains, in their story world.  Even though I have not begun to write their story, and won’t until the first draft of NORTH OF EDEN is finished, they are so real to me that I wouldn’t be surprised to meet them in the supermarket or at the post office.  That is the magic of writing, as well as reading; one gets to live a different life–travel sandy deserts with Lawrence of Arabia, move from one Little House to another with Laura Ingalls Wilder, pass between the standing stones with Claire, and wind up in another period of history, solve mysteries with Hercule Poirot or Kinsey Millhone or Alex Cross–well, you get the idea.  Reading and writing are two sides of the same coin, really–both are grand adventures.  

What I’m reading AND listening to, alternating by chapters: THE VIEW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS, by Neil Gaimon.  I confess, I loved THE GRAVEYARD BOOK.  This, my friend, is an imaginative writer, and I do love a good ghost story.  CHEAP SEATS is a compilation of speeches and articles, and a very valuable peek into the mind of a truly original and ground-breaking author.  I’ve been a writer for a long, long time, and a reader even longer, and I never, ever read a book, good, bad or indifferent, without learning something.

Recent listens: TEARS TO TRIUMPH, by Marianne Williamson.  This wise woman never disappoints me, and the prayers she composes are SO beautiful that I copy them into journals or onto index cards (I go through a LOT of index cards) and find great inspiration in them.  LAST CHANCE MUSTANG, by Mitchell Bornstein.  I love horses, and this book only made me love them more; what magnificent creatures they are!  In this nonfiction offering, Bernstein writes about his experiences training a mustang stallion called Sampson, an intelligent and terribly abused creature who’d survived (barely) the varieties of the Bureau of Land Management’s wild horse program.  Believe me, folks, the BLM’s approach needs a great deal of improvement.  Animal lovers everywhere need to know what happens to so many of these wild, once-free, flesh-and-blood icons of the American west, and, more importantly, to speak up.   ME BEFORE YOU, by Jojo Moyes.  This is a moving and fascinating story, even though I often wanted to take the heroine by the shoulders and shake some sense into her.  Finally, I’ll mention BLACK RABBIT HALL, by Eve Chase, an English author, like Moyes.  This is a classic gothic–I used to read tons of those, back in the 70s, when they were in their heyday–and although parts of it are disturbing, I simply had to know what happened next, and next, and next….

So, there you have it.  My reading/writing schedule, which has kept me darned busy for the last little while.  

What are you reading?

    Hi Ms. Linda!! Cannot wait to read “North of Eden” and “The Wager”. I have loved all of your books regarding ranching, horses, etc. and always look forward to the next one. Keep them coming!!!!! I have always been a Civil War buff too. Studying it in school was my favorite part of American History. I will anxiously be awaiting the release!! I am currently reading “Christmas on my Mind” by Janet Dailey. Ms. Dailey is one of the first authors I began reading and I was fortunate enough to be able to meet her at a book signing. Hopefully one day I will meet you too as you are a favorite!

That’s all I look for at thrift and consignment stores, and yard sales; only yours, Linda. Thank you for your gift of writing and taking us away from the reality of this harsh world. You are my favorite author.

    I couldn’t agree more about the BLM!! I follow the group Cloud The Stallion & others that protest the horses’ treatment – it’s outrageous, but all are in bed w/big bucks ranchers, who complain horses damage the land!! It’s the much more numerous cattle that do the damage!!.

    Love reading your messages! Make my laugh, cry & wish I had your gift! I am reading a new series by Lindsay McKenna, she, like you, is another of my long term authors. This one, The Delos series, is great! My two grandsons & granddaughter in law, all pilots were deployed to Afghanistan a total of 12 times, so anything involving that part of the country is interesting to me! :wink:
    My daughter loves Civil War stories, she & one of my grandsons have made many trips to Gettysburg & other battlefields. My family on both sides fought for the South all over that part of the country. I am a Revolutionary War student… all 3 of us majored in History… :-P Stephen majored in Military History at the Air Force Academy, early history!

Yes, some of them are oldies but they are new to me. I’ve made it one of my goals to try to read the books I have before buying any more books. Hard to do when you are a bookaholic!

    I love to read. English is my second language, I spoke only Spanish until I was 4 years old. I remember looking @ books & magazines and hungering to know what those words were. I started reading comic books, which made action/follow/words easy to understand, and hence began my romance w/ the printed word. I love to read your books, I have to wait until they are available @ booksite, but I do get all your books. I enjoy Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs, because of her different settings, Sharon Sala and her ability to write such nail-biting books. Robyn Carr. reminds much of Debbie Macomber. My new favorite is Brenda Novak who lives in Sacramento and sets most of her books here. I love reading about areas that are known to me. These are the ones I check which are the recent books, but really, I will read anything that catches my attention. Please keep up the great work. :lol:

I like all those “Jacks.” I just finished Nora Roberts’ O’Dwyer trilogy with Irish magicks. Then I started rereading the Chesapeake Shores series by Sherryl Woods in anticipation of that series on Hallmark in a few weeks. I’ll have all of them finished in time to get Always A Cowboy!

Honestly, I am not a dinosaur I just prefer going to a book store. I am glad you are writing some new material. I have gone through almost all of your books. I hope some of your new stuff is historical romances. My favorites have always been the ones set in the old west.

    Reminded me of you.
    Take care and I will write you soon!

    I’ve been reading anything I can get my hands on. Including books by Nora Roberts, Johanna Lindsey, Debbie Macomber, Lori Foster, and you. Cannot wait for your new book to come out! Keep writing. I adore your characters as well as the settings.

    Good morning Linda,

    I enjoy reading your blogs. They just seem to brighten my day.

    I have gone back to start recollecting some of my books of which I no longer have in paperback. This time I am collecting them on my Kindle. I have discovered they take up less space in my house that way. I digress – I am reading the Murray family series by Hannah Howell. Actually listening – love my Scots. Since there are more than a dozen of them, it make take me a little while.

    I still have some books – the autographed ones anyway. Plan to keep those for a while.

    Will be spending the next 3 months recovering from two surgeries – carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve on the right side tomorrow then the ulnar nerve on the left side in about 4 weeks. Hope to be able to work on my certification courses and complete most of them since I will be home all day. Wish me luck – will need to work on my self-discipline.

    Have a blessed day!!!

    Niki

    I am so looking forward to your new books, especially the civil war ones. I also agree that when I read I feel as if I know the characters, I hate to put a book down. I find myself thinking, wonder what so and so is doing now. lol. keep up the fabulous writing that you always do.

    Love your reading list. I have a great one as well. Been saving some by my three favourite authors: Linda Lael Miller, Robyn Carr and Debbie MacComber – sorry if I spelled any names wrong I have a thunder storm headache that is making me fuzzy. These books – all series – are getting me through a stressful time with hubby in hospital for 6 weeks. Its lonely out here in our RV so I cuddle up with my Sparky – a pookie (poode/yorkie) and loose myself in the magic you gals create. Thanks

    Hi: sounds like you have had a great interesting lately with some great reads. Since i work 40 hours a week i take various Harlequin series of stories to work for breaks & lunch. At home i can cover the few hardbacks & best the paperbacks. There has been a few paperbacks that i have taken with me to work since they just had to be done. You might be looking for an alphabet soup for lunch. Looking forward to the next after “Once A Rancher” & to your Civil War series. Since we have been in temp’s of 100+ & having to stay in a lot, that means more reading breaks. Along with Kinsey Milhone there’s Scott Bremington & a few other good ones. the best, Jo Ann

    Reading is my passion! So many favorite authors to choose from, it’s hard to have a “favorite”.
    We’ve had so much sadness in our lives lately- 3 people close to us passed away this week. Two “younger” ones from cancer and the 3rd one lived a good, long, rewarding life. Before I go to sleep I read. I can immerse myself in a good book and then finally fall asleep.

    Good to hear from you again. I’ve been reading J.D. Robb and the odd Harlequin for quick reading in between the heavy stuff. I have a couple of your books saved for holidays in Nova Scotia next month. All the best. :lol:
