#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

And it’s already Friday…?

How does this happen?  One moment, it’s Monday and the next, it’s Friday.  Time is whizzing by.

Which is not to say I’M whizzing anyplace–I’ve been moving in slow motion all week.  I don’t know when I’m going to learn that, for all my writing enthusiasm, I need a few days to nap and putter after any significant trip.  :)  Frankly, I’m pooped.

A whole bunch of late-blooming lilacs have kicked in on the other side of the back fence–didn’t even realize they were there.  Neither did anyone else in the outfit–but they’re beautiful.  Another answer to the “Surprise me, God,” prayer. 

Lovely bouquet from my agent, Irene Goodman, and her husband, Alex–in celebration of the surprise of the year.  Honestly, I didn’t expect that, given the other writers who have new books out right now.  Flowers, flowers–like my dad, I don’t believe there could ever be too many flowers…

Still haven’t planted my zinnias.  For shame.  I’m a lazy cowgirl this week–maybe I should change the name of the ranch to the Lazy Triple L.  :)

Or not.

Have a grand weekend, all of you.  Be safe, be well, and be kind.

    Linda, you could never say you are “a lazy cowgirl” !! Relax and “potter” this week-end you deserve it :)

    The same to you, Linda.

    Lilacs are so beautiful and smell great, too. But, I don’t have any, anymore.

    Take care, Gloria!!

    I guess that is where the saying “I need a vacation to recover from my vacation.” comes from. Maybe a little horse and barn therapy is needed. Couldn’t hurt, right?

    Dear Linda,
    I just wanted to thank you for writing the books that you do. I use to be a real slow reader and had a difficult time because of my disability. Then I started to read your books and I was able to understand them and also read in a much quicker fashion. You are amazing right now I am reading Mckettrick’s Luck about Jesse and Cheyene. I just love this series I bought all three books so I can read all of them. I am going to be able to read all of your books and the ones in the future from now on so thank you again.
    Sincerely Liz Mawhinney :-P

    I bought Big Sky Country on June 4th. I couldn’t start reading it until Saturday, June 9th. I couldn’t put it down, I’m glad my husband was gone out of town on business. I did nothing over the weekend but read. I loved it!!!! Can’t wait, hopefully the next two books are about Hutch and Kendra and Boone and the chicken farmer (sorry I forgot her name). Thanks for the wonderful stories.

    Linda…who is the 3rd Parable, Montana book about? I’m guessing Boone and the Chicken Farmer, I can’t remember her name either.

    How do you come up with your characters’ names?
