Jodi Thomas Ransom Canyon Giveaway #5

Jodi’s back for another Ransom Canyon Giveaway. YeeHaw!!!

Wild Horse Springs

I wanted to write a story about happens when a fantasy comes true when I started Wild Horse Springs. I loved writing my sheriff, Dan Brigman. He daydreams of meeting a wild and beautiful woman, so when he finds a fancy blue woman’s cowboy boot, he tries to picture what the woman who wore it would be like. Finding her becomes his quest.

Step into Wild Horse Spring with me and fall in love for the first time all over again.

    1. I forgot to add…. yes, I am a daydreamer. I have mentally rewritten a movies and books to be more satisfying to me. My dreams were surpassed by reality when a man I had had a crush on in high school came looking for me, found me, and asked me to marry him. We’ve been married 16 years!

      1. I should also say, that man came looking for me 32 years after high school and neither one of us had ever been married.

        1. Now that is the stuff dreams are made of! CONGRATULATIONS!

  2. Jodi- good morning I loved Wild Horse Springs, I loved Dan’s adventure of finding who the boot belonged too. He’s such an important part of this series, so glad he was featured with some happiness. I needed a “Jodi fix” as I await Indigo Lake book to come out, so I found a book of yours I’ve not read ( I thought I had read them all) so I was surprised when I found “Easy On The Heart”!! In Liberal yesterday in an anthology book called ” How To Lasso A Cowboy”!!! I’m loving it. You are such a gifted and talented author. I’m super excited you & Linda will be coming to Hugoton, KS for a book signing. This will be so much fun!! Love you Dearly: Tonya

    1. Thanks for all the sweet comments, Tonya. Linda and I are excited to be coming to Hugoton. I hope you enjoy INDIGO LAKE as much as the other Ransom Canyon books. WINTER’S CAMP has been included in the back too!

      1. Jodi- that’s wonderful to know. I’ve told all my friends who have a way to download Winter’s Camp to read it, as it tells the backstory of Ransom Canyon. It will be wonderful to have it in print for my collection along with the other books. I’m so excited for you & Linda coming to my library.

  3. Oh, yes, I am a big day dreamer, never had any of them become reality, though. I have rewritten more than one story ending to make them more satisfying. Thanks for the chance, and I hope to get a chance to read it 🙂

    1. It’s always fun to dream! Thanks for participating in the contest, Lisa.

  4. I love daydreaming. It is also fun to rewrite things or to take them further, all in my head.

    1. I do a lot of that in my head also, Debra!

  5. I am totally a daydreamer. If it weren’t for those daydreams, I would lose my mind. And there was one time that I let reality overcome my dreams. I used to dream of living in Hawaii when I was married to my ex. After we got divorced, he finally decided to make the move. He asked if I wanted to come with him and it was hard to say no. I knew it wasn’t a good idea even though I would have loved to have lived there. He’s still there 15 years later. We remained good friends all this time.

    1. Janine, thanks for sharing your great story! What a great friendship…

  6. Would love to win….?

    1. Good luck, Tonya, and thanks for participating!

  7. I’m a huge daydreamer and yes I almost always create in my mind how a book I’m reading is going to develop and end. I even dream about the book at night that I’m currently reading and create scenarios there. I sometimes have to take a moment when I get back to actually reading the book to clear my mind on what’s actually happening in it and not my head.

    1. You sound like a very creative person, Stephanie!

  8. I’m not much of a daydreamer anymore. I was taught to be practical from the beginning and life has a way of reinforcing that. I think my avid reading replaces that – living in other worlds and characters lives is my way of daydreaming.

    1. Living in other worlds and characters’ lives is a great way to daydream!

  9. I am a huge daydreamer. Not as much as when I was a kid, and would daydream with everything including while doing the dishes. I talked to them, as in my world they were alive as they went to the park to go swimming. I could get the shyest to jump into the water to have fun, before they had to get out get dried and walk home.
    Love your books, and am very excited that another is coming out soon.

    1. Veda, loved your “dish-washing” story–very creative!

  10. I daydream from time to time…. always fun!

    1. I agree, Melanie, daydream is fun!

  11. Yes I am daydreamer to a fault a lot of times I hope and believe to much for a wonderful outcome that I become horribly upset when it doesn’t happen the way I so badly wanted it too. Would love to win this book to go with my other autographed copies of this series. Love your books

    1. Thanks for sharing and participating, Glenda, and good luck!

  12. I like to make up things in my head… enjoy using my imagination…

    1. That’s a great thing to do, Colleen!

  13. I have always been a daydreamer. I have been making up stories since I was a child. First it was stories about my nightly trips with Peter Pan that I told my siblings at bedtime. Later, i expanded to mysteries, a Nancy Drew want-a-be, and tails of adventure. Those I didn’t share. I did start writing one down in high school, but my family found it and ridiculed the story and me. That was the end of my writing anything down. I still make up stories and yes I have rewritten endings. More often than not I continue the story or rewrite it along the lines of my ideas.

    Sadly reality often falls short of our dreams. That was not true of my stint in the Peace Corps. I dreamed of joining when I first heard JFK talk about it. I spent the next 6 years or so finishing high school and college. I joined and left 3 weeks after graduation. The 3 years I was a volunteer far exceeded anything I could imagine. What a wonderful experience.

  14. I used to be a big day dreamer but not so much anymore, there is to many things going on to be a day dreamer. If we could have the happy ever after like in book we would be in great shape. I would love to win this book so thanks for the chance.

  15. Jodi – Oh, yes I am a daydreamer. I have written a book in my head for 30 yrs. now….I keep changing it after I get more ideas from the books I have read. I have read your Ransom Canyon, Rustler’s Moon & Lone Heart Pass books. Thanks, for a chance to win a copy of your new book, Wild Horse Springs….if I don’t win; I’ll add this book to my TBR list. Yes, I also chance the end of movies & etc. to end the way I would like them to end……
