#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


Yikes! (And other ramblings)

Where is this excerpt from “High Country Bride” printed???  HCB is definitely about RAFE–thank heaven for my eagle-eyed readers.  :)

I seem to be in goof-off mode today–slow moving, lots of fiddling around.  Hence, this blog is being posted later than usual.  Which doesn’t mean I won’t be writing, because I am SO into this story–and hope to finish by next week.

You know me and Fridays.  I just can’t believe how fast they come around!

I’m doing my own version of low-carb eating–not sure I’m any skinnier, because I do tend to bend the rules a little, but I feel great and have lots of energy, so I’ll keep on keeping on.  Since I don’t have a size or weight goal in mind–trust me, that’s new–I’m flexible.  And good news!  Without the potatoes or noodles, Julia Child’s fabulous Beouf Bourgingon (misspelled, I’m sure) is pretty low carb.  YEEHAW.  Not sure I could face a whole lifetime with no more BB.  :)

I’m working this weekend–no, really, this time I mean it–and what little free time I’ll have will probably go into making more artist trading cards, reading or listening to books (or both), taking Bernicie to explore the barn.  :)

Have a good one, and keep those fabulous comments coming, please. 

More on our Happiness Project next week.

    Hi, Linda. The excerpt is on your Website, if you go to the “BOOKS” tab above, then choose McKettricks and click on High Country Bride, it has the same description that Shotgun Bride has. I love that you are goofing off but fighting it all the way … sort of. LOL! That must be a joy, to not have a “boss” physically standing over your shoulder. You are blessed! Have a great weekend! The rodeo is in town here in Puyallup – I want to go so bad, but I don’t like going places alone. I’ll let you know if I become brave enough or desperate enough to do that! :O)

    Linda, I hope you have a good weekend.

    I finished There and Now last night, for the second time, and started reading Here and Then, again.

    Linda, you have some marvelous readers out there. I am just about to talk to Hilda when I stop talking to you.

    I read T&N about 15+ years ago, and just recently read H&T, but…thanks to Sam, I’m now reading them back to back. I like a GOOD time travel book, and these are great. Thanks for writing them. I’m still hoping for another one becasue as I said before, the necklace is still out there, waiting to be found by some romantic lady.

    PS Linda, I have one complaint about your Blog….I wish it had spell check to catch my mis-spelled words, like becasue. :wink:

    You’ve heard the old saying about getting your tongue tangled around your eye tooth and can’t see what you’re saying???
    I must get my fingers crossed and hit the keys in the wrong order…I do it all the time.

    Oh well!!! I”ve never been a typist.

    Okay, you know I love you Linda but this diet thing is going to drive you nuts. I know because I have been there and done that. Here is how I dropped forty pounds. First I talked to my doctor. I ate whatever I wanted but subtracted 1/4 to 1/2 from my normal serving (potatoes, pasta etc). I took walks. Between meals I ate healthy foods, Fruits and vegetables but did not completely rule out the bad stuff (chocolate once a week). I also did some muscle stretching. Its all about the portions and the excercise. Its about changing the way you think. Sorry if this is hurtful but I have watched so many drive themselves up the perverbial wall with diets. Delete that word from your vocabulary. Insert life style change. Diet is a four letter word.

    Hi: When are we going to see the McKettrick genealogy charts back on the web-site? :lol: I have read both of your last two books and can’t wait for the next one to come out.

    Hi Linda,
    Have you thought about writing a third book in your Austraila Series? One that would be about Duncan? I really enjoyed his part in the other books and even though he could be a real pain in the butt at times, I found myself feeling sorry for him and wishing he could find someone to love as well. Thanks :)
