Happy 2nd Birthday Petticoats & Pistols!


Can you believe it’s already been two years since P&P was launched? 

Happy Birthday to Us!

To celebrate the occasion, we decided to catch up with the three Fillies who saddled up and departed for different pastures: Kate Bridges, Geralyn Dawson, and Lorraine Heath.

Welcome back, ladies. 

Kate ~ Congratulations on your 2nd anniversary! I wish you many more! And much continued success to the Fillies and dear readers. It seems like I just left, and I miss you all. I’ve been busy. My next book comes out in November, called ALASKAN RENEGADE. Here’s a summary:  When the Skagway town nurse, cupcake-1Victoria Windhaven, sets off on a dangerous medical journey through the Alaskan wilderness, she is forced to ride with a man from her past–bodyguard Brant MacQuaid. Five years ago in St. Louis, Brant left her sister standing at the altar. Victoria can’t forgive him. He is one of three men who deserted Victoria when she needed him most. Now it’s up to them to battle the wilderness, a vicious criminal who is in desperate need of medical help for his father, and the undeniable attraction that grips them. For more info or to preorder, visit www.KateBridges.comI’m still waiting on the front cover, which should be any day now. 

For those of you who’ve been following my writing projects, I’m still working on a romantic comedy screenplay that’s been a lot of fun, and very different from writing a novel. Whenever I get stuck on one plotline, I switch to the other project. I’ve also squeezed in a couple of holidays since I left–a trip to the Bahamas, and I just got back from camping in northern Ontario. I’ve got two more Alaska books coming out next year–I think I’m in love with that part of the world! Best wishes to all. I’ll pop in to say hi in person! 


Geralyn ~ Happy Anniversary P&P! After taking a writing sabbatical for much of 2008, I sold a romantic women’s fiction series to Ballantine. They’re publishing the first three books close together, so pub dates are still far out–late 2010 and early 2011. The first book of the new series features the fourth brother of my Callahan brothers series, so it’s both an ending and a new beginning. heath_surrenderwww.GeralynDawson.com


Lorraine ~ Congratulations to the fillies on your 2-year anniversary! Difficult to believe how quickly time passes. It’s wonderful to see the popularity of the site and to know that westerns still have a warm place in so many readers’ hearts.

I’ve missed hanging out with the fillies, but these days I sometimes feel as though I’m living under a rock. As you know, I had to mosey away from you wonderful laheath_fullmoondies because of time commitment issues. By December, I will have had 7 releases this year: 3 Victorian-set historicals and 4 young adult novels.

My current releases are Surrender to the Devil, written by Lorraine Heath, and Full Moon, written by Rachel Hawthorne, which continues my recent ventures into the paranormal world.

Again, congratulations to the fillies for all your accomplishments and for continuing to keep westerns on the shelf. They still remain some of my favorite reads.  www.LorraineHeath.com


Thanks for joining us for the celebration, ladies, and best of luck in the future. We can’t wait to read your latest!

  15. Kate, I really enjoy your books. Have introduced them to several people at our library.
    Lorraine, westerns are very popular at our library and yours are up there at the top. A different group of readers go for the Victorian books. Had no idea you were writing YA books. I’ve had teens asking for werewolf books.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Fillies. I just discovered your site a few months ago and wish I’d found it sooner. It is the first site I visit every night. It is wonderful for my history fix. I already knew about half of you and now have a whole new group of authors to enjoy. Keep up the good work.

  16. Patricia, thank you for the compliment on my books. How lovely. Glad you discovered the site!
    Have a great weekend, everyone, it was fun dropping in and hearing from you all!
