#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Now you see me, now you don’t :)

The blog has been sketchy lately, and I apologize for that.  Yesterday, I was busy in Blue River, Texas, riding herd on a couple of unruly McKettrick men.  (It’s an awful job, but somebody has to do it.  :) )  I’ve just wrapped up the second chapter and I’m fixing to dive into the third.   I love writing about my modern cowboys, but it’s fun to travel back in time a little way, to 1915, where the telegraph is considered high tech and nobody has a cell phone, smart or otherwise.  In “A Lawman’s Christmas”, you met Clay McKettrick, founder of the modern-day Texas McKettrick clan, and his lovely Dara Rose.  In “An Outlaw’s Christmas”, I’m reintroducing Clay’s cousin, Sawyer, who appeared briefly in the first book.  He’s something of a mystery man, and I’m enjoying that.  Piper St. James, our heroine, who lives at and teaches in the one-room schoolhouse, could do with a little LESS mystery where he’s concerned, thank you very much.

Bernice made her usual sojourn to the barn this morning, with her beloved Jenni.  Yesterday, she actually spotted a mouse–oh, the joy of it!–and gave chase.  Alas, the little devil was too fast even for the Yorkie, and managed to burrow into the hay stack to avoid certain death.  Bernice, though thwarted, was just as happy–for her, it’s all about the journey.  :)

This morning started out with some excitement–the glamorous life of a writer–one of the toilets overflowed and I was pressed into clean-up duty.

I’m listening to Lisa Scottaline’s new book, “Come Home.”  It’s a great story, but there’s a character in the beginning who sobs until you want to shake her.  Or the narrator.  :)  I sure am intrigued, though–I’ll be sticking with this one until I find out what the heck is going on with these people.

My first vampire book, “Forever and the Night”, is up on Nook now, and that’s exciting.  In a month, it will be on Amazon, too.

I hear a cat meowing to come inside, so I’d better go downstairs and play my secondary role–door woman.

See you tomorrow.

    Yeah for the Yorkie! I knew her love of going to the barn wasn’t just for the exercise! :wink:

    I’ll try to be more patient when we don’t see blog posts every day. You just keep writing. :)

    Linda, I think all of us would agree that time just flies and a day can seem to go by in a second, so keep up the good work and remember to breath :wink:
    Take care

    Don’t you worry about the posts :wink: As my sister-in-law once said ‘Life Happened’. We love hearing from you but we love your books just as much. Funny you spoke of “Forever and the Night”, I have that one plus the other 3 that made up the Vampire Series and of course love them also. You have a great day!!!!!

    I would not be the first to mention that being one of you cats, dogs or horses is a pretty sweet gig! Like Sam said, remember to breathe! Hugs…

      I’m sorry you feel that way. I will finish the Mojo series–just not right now.
