Goodbyes Are Not Forever

Dear Readers,

This will be my last blog for Petticoats and Pistols but instead of goodbye, I’ll say “see you down the road!”

I want to thank all of you for taking the time to read and comment on the travel adventures I’ve shared with you over the past year. It’s been a lot of fun getting to know you and learning about your travels, too!

I’ve recently begun working as a caregiver for the elderly and have taken on more responsibility for my eighty-one-year-old father—the handsome high school jock in the plaid shorts!

These new obligations require that I scale back my writing commitments, but I still plan to carve out time in the coming months to work on a story that I plotted this past spring. Once a writer—always a writer!

I’d love to stay in touch with you and continue to share my travels, news about my books and future giveaways.

If you haven’t already done so, I invite you to subscribe to my Newsletter.

Marin Thomas
I may have grown up in the Midwest but my favorite place in the whole world is Arizona. Hubby and I are recent empty nesters living in Phoenix and we like to take off and explore the Grand Canyon State every chance we get. I’ve been writing contemporary western romances since 2004 for Harlequin and also write contemporary romance for Tule Publishing Group in addition to romantic women's fiction for Berkley-Penguin Random House. When I’m not writing I like to spend my free time junk hunting, researching ghost tours and exploring Route 66. I invite you to visit www.marinthomas.com to learn more about my books and where I hang out on social media.

  1. Marin- Thanks for all the wonderful blogs and enjoyment you have shared over the years. Good luck st your new endeavor. You are a true saint in doing what you’re doing. Shows the love and sacrifice your heart has for giving. I wish you the best. I’ll be praying for you and your dad.
    God bless you and your family!

    1. Thank you, Tonya! *Hugs*

  2. You will be missed on the blog. Good luck in being a caregiver, as that requires a major commitment that can overwhelm you if you let it. I know that your father will appreciate the time and care you give him.

  3. Taking care of others is a deep commitment. Please take care of yourself as well. It can become overwhelming. The reward of the time and what it brings cannot be replaced. Your kindness and love are precious.
    See you down the road.

  7. sending you warm wishes and best of luck

    1. *Hugs* Elaine-thank you!

  8. We’ll miss seeing you here. But I totally understand your other obligations.

  9. Very honorable reason to be scaling back. My parents are all close to the age of needing to be taken care of. Especially my mother, she’ll be 80 and she’s not very active at all. My Daddy and step-mom would have to have a major health crisis but at 80 and 79 they’re very active. I wish you and your father the best and look forward to your blogs and newsletters!

    1. Thanks, Stephanie and my best to your parents, too. *Hugs*

  10. Wishing you all the best for your future.

  11. Marin,

    I wish you the best as you take on this labor of love.

    I have enjoyed getting to know you through the blog, your website, and your books.

    1. Thank you, Denise, I appreciate your heartfelt words!

  12. Thank you for your wonderful blogs — and Books! As others have said, take good care of yourself as you care for others. I send hugs and prayers for you there–both for you and your dad. (I took care of my 89 year old mother.) We’ll really miss you.

    Blessings,
    Eliza

    1. Thank you for the heartfelt words, Eliza! *Hugs*

  13. Thank you for always sharing with us! I wish you well in taking care of your father.

    1. Thanks, Susan-you take care!

  14. Marin, I want to chain myself to your foot and keep you here, darn it! I wish you didn’t feel your time here is over. I love your blogs and your books but most of all you. I wish you well and pray that our paths cross again down the road. Be safe and be well, dear friend!

    1. *Hugs* Linda! Our paths will cross again one day, I’m certain. I love this group of ladies and will miss you all!

  15. Sorry to see you leave the Junction, but we realize life often makes changes in our lives we do not plan for. Working with the elderly is hard work, can be difficult, but is so rewarding. You will be missed. Keeping your book idea on a side burner, working on it when you can will be good to keep you in practice. It also gives us something to look forward to.

  16. Marin, I wish you well. God bless you!

    1. Same to you, Connie, thank you!
