The Brides of Hope Mountain Series
I FINALLY HAVE A COVER FOR BOOK THREE!!!
And today one lucky commenter (hey LUCKY is my spin, okay?) will win a signed copy of book #2, NOT YET RELEASED…Woman of Sunlight.
Getting a book published was a bucket list thing for me.
I’m not big on bucket lists. In fact, I sort of have what I think of as a REVERSE bucket list. I think of all the things I used to want to do and never got done and I’m all WHAT WAS I THINKING??? THANK HEAVENS I NEVER GOT THAT DONE!!
So I don’t mark things off my bucket list by DOING them. I mark things off by coming to my senses.
So, last month, I did something I’ve never quite gotten marked off my bucket list (very short these days)
I took a helicopter ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon!
OH YES I DID! I took photos, mainly because I wanted to prove it to myself that I did it, later when I began to think it was just something I cooked up in my imagination.
This is a picture of a picture, if that makes sense (it doesn’t, oops). Part of the flight package is a snapshot (not free just available to buy) of us with our pilot.
Do they have a digital picture? Nope, just that picture to hand over.
So I propped it up and snapped a picture of that picture.
Our pilot looked and sounded like Ben Affleck. He was a great combination of cool competence, thus earning my shaky trust, and humor. Just a nice smooth combination.
It was a perfect day. I was so nervous about the helicopter. They always seem so SWOOPY on TV. But it was as smooth as silk. Once while we seemed to just be creeping along in the sky I asked him how fast we were going.
He said: 150 mph.
I couldn’t feel the speed. I was worried about air sickness but never even close.
My Cowboy came along. This is something I’ve wanted to do since I wrote a book set in the Grand Canyon a whole lotta years ago, called Deep Trouble.
I did so much research for that book that, by the time I was deep into it, I wanted to hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. But I was pretty sure I’d die. So I discovered you could FLY down there.
And the bucket list had a new agenda item.
Bucket Lists. Do you have them? Do you have a dream? A goal? Tell me about one of them that you’ve done or still want to do…or have come to your senses. (parachute jump anyone…that’s one I kicked off a while ago)
My ‘get a book published’ bucket list item is going GREAT. My new release (coming March 3) Woman of Sunlight, is my SIXTY-FOURTH BOOK. That’s some huge leap beyond getting ONE published, huh?
Today, leave a comment and get your name in the drawing for a signed copy of Woman of Sunlight. Let’s talk dreams, goals, ambitions, bucket lists.
