#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


The book that started it all, the very first McKettrick book ever, is in stores today!  The new cover is beautiful–you can’t miss it–and if you missed the early years of my now-sprawling clan of cowboys, here’s your chance to get in at the beginning.  :)  It’s the classic western romance and still occupies a warm place in my heart.

I had the BEST writing day yesterday.  First, I did my 10 minutes of freewriting–just going lickety split and not bothering with punctuation or spelling or anything like that.  When the timer on my iPhone bings, I stop, mid-sentence, mid-word–that’s it.  The process is magical for me, getting me out of my picky-picky head (that’s for editing) and into my heart, where the story actually lives.  Since I’m already in fast mode, I just start writing my chapter, promising my inner editor that I’ll polish during the revision process.

Montana cousins Lane and Pam are visiting sometime today.  Not sure when they’ll get here, but it’s always nice to see them.  Doesn’t happen too often, though–Montana’s only a few hours from here, and I write about it all the time, but I rarely get over there.  My mom grew up in Choteau, so it’s home-country to all of us.

Like the rest of the country, we’re having hot, sunny weather.  I’m enjoying it big time!

Gotta get to work. 

See you tomorrow.

    I bought High Country Bride when it first came out, because it was in Arizona. Absolutely loved it and then had to wait… wait… wait some more… until all the brothers got their stories as well. Thankfully, the stories just got better each time. I especially like Lorelei in McKettrick's Choice! Fun first chapter.

    The Mckettricks are also my favorite! Read the entire series and they capture my heart. Would you ever go back to writing in the time setting of the 1800's again??

Texas was the most active gunfighting state, with some 160 shoot-outs from the 1850’s through the 1890’s.
