#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller


I’ve got to get somebody to show me how to access the whole of your comments since I haven’t figured it out on my own and as of now I can only see the first line or so.  Just want you to know that I do read them and I do care what you say, though I can’t always answer.   

Remember my “Surprise me, God” motto?  Well, it’s already happening.  Yesterday I was scrolling through the new fiction on iTunes–I listen to a LOT of books –and there was “Big Sky Country”.  The printed version doesn’t even come out until May 29th, the day I’ll be winging my merry way to California to attend the CREATE workshops and spend time with Wendy and Jeremy.  The audio usually comes out a month after the book itself.  Go figure.  Anyway, if you’re a listener instead of a reader (I’m both), it’s available, read in the sexy cowboy voice of Jack Garrett.

Off to have my yearly physical today.  I’d rather stay home and write, but you know how it is.  Some things have just got to be done, like it or not, so I’m mustering up the best attitude I can and heading out for the clinic.  Good Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise, I’ll polish my draft of Chapter 3 when I get back.

I wish you well.

    Know you came through the physical with flying colors!! :)

    I have a Kindle but there are some books I buy in paperback so I can “feel” them…look at them. :wink: Your books are in that category. And I’m not crazy about someone else putting their audio spin on a story that is making its own movie in my head. I’m waiting for the paper. :)

    As always, thanks for the good reads, Linda.

    How do you pick the names of your characters?

      Sharon, names are hugely important to me. They have to be just right. I use name books, listen to names on TV and everywhere else, gather them wherever I can. My cousin, Mary Ann, suggests quite a few of them. :)

    Linda, i couldn’t access the other site where you answered my question to answer you back. I must not exist on it :wink:, but I do know I have SAD, except this past winter was a little better for some reason. Prayer helps.

    I pray all is well with you and your physical is an A+.

    When do we get another Mojo book? It has been a long time.

      Trust me, I’m thinking about Mojo and I will do at least one more book as soon as I can.

    I used to like to read your blog but lately it’s been all God, God, God! Since I am not a religious person, it turns me off so I guess it’s goodbye to you Linda. Good luck.

    Linda, your gentle response to Judy was perfect. It reflects the Spirit that lives in you, one that I wish many more people possessed. And BTW, your blogs are NOT “all God God God,” because you obviously have a very full life and being such a fabulous writer, your blogs have lots of entertaining and interesting tidbits for your fans!
