FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON!

I selected my blog title, For Everything There’s a Season, for a reason. It’s so true and I believe the majority of us know that the pandemic changed our lives … some for better but some not as good. I think due to Covid we’ve all had to make changes.  Being quarantined didn’t help a dern bit.

To begin with, my big publishing house closed my line; but, I’m fortunate to have been picked up by Prairie Rose Publishing, who I’ve done several single title releases and anthologies with. My first new book, tentatively named Santa and the Texan, should be out for Christmas. I’m very excited to be working with these awesome authors and their house.

During the beginning of the pandemic, I broke my tailbone. Yelp, it hurt a lot and I spent most of my days medicated and laying on my side watching TV.

Then if things couldn’t get worse, I ended up tripping over my husband’s dog who typically isn’t in the house.  That put me back on the couch with my leg extended, a walker to get around, and a wheelchair.  I’m getting much better. That’s good news, but I can’t walk long distances, squat, or lift anything heavy.

Over the last five or six months, I’ve had to depend on precious Sister Fillies, Pam and Linda, to format and post most of my blogs, as I can’t sit in a chair for any length of time. Thanks to the love and caring of all of the Fillies, I think I’m getting better, but not there yet.

Now for the good news, no knee replacement just continue with shots in my knee and pain meds, which I don’t take anymore than is necessary, and keeping my knee resting on pillows. I’ve never conquered using my laptop on my lap: so,  I’m therefore resorting to my iPad to keep up with things.

This is all leading up to there’s definitely a time for everything.  After 12 years and 221 blogs as a Filly, I’m leaving the corral.  I’m not leaving Petticoats and Pistols, just going out to pasture, so I can get better; and, help my husband who has macular degeneration. He’s very close to having to stop driving.  Family first! That’s my moto.

The good news, I’ll still do periodic guest blogs, as well as being able to help any of the other Fillies who needs a fill in.  That’ll take a little pressure off of everyone.  You’ll love the new Filly who is taking my regular blog spot.  Watch for her announcement…you’ll be as excited to have her as we are.

Oh by the way, the Fillies found me a blanket, so I won’t get cold in winter and a computer, so I can keep up on the news while out in the pasture.

My blessings and much love to each of our readers.  And, as they’d say in the Old West “Happy Trails to you until we meet again.”

 

To three lucky winners, I’m giving away your choice of any of my books.

 

 

M.K. McClintock Returns to Visit!

Miss M.K. McClintock will return for a visit this Friday, June 25, 2021!

We’re so happy to have her back. She’ll talk about the Colorado town of Durango. You’ll love it.

She’s also toting a set of the McKenzie Sisters Mystery Series! What fun!

Be thinking about what western town you’d like to visit and head over to chat on Friday.

We always love a good crowd.

For all things western, always head over to P&P’s Wildflower Junction!

Big Things Are Happening at the Corral!

Every so often over the years we have changes in the Filly lineup. Our hearts were saddened when Margaret Brownley announced she was leaving. We didn’t want to lose her but we didn’t want to hold her back either. You see, she met this handsome man and fell in love. They recently married and plan to travel. Our hearts are sighing. Nothing’s more perfect for making a bunch of romance writers! We wish the happy couple a long and wonderful life together.

Sooo…we welcome a new Filly. You’re gonna adore her. The awesome and talented Cathy McDavid has put her horse in the corral and settling in. We’re just so happy she’s here.

Cathy’s been penning Westerns for Harlequin since 2005. With over 50 titles in print and 1.5 million-plus books sold, She is also a member of the prestigious Romance Writers of America’s Honor Roll. This “almost” Arizona native and mother of grown twins is married to her own real-life sweetheart. After leaving the corporate world seven years ago, she now spends her days writing stories about good looking cowboys riding the range, busting broncs, and sweeping gals off their feet — oops, no. Make that winning the hearts of feisty, independent women who give the cowboys a run for their money. It a tough job, but she’s willing to make the sacrifice. 🙂

Cathy’s first post will be Thursday, June 24th and we want you all to drop by and give her a big warm welcome that we’re famous for. And check out her books. CLICK HERE for the link. Her newest release is HOW TO MARRY A COWBOY. Yee-Haw!

Rachel Fordham Sets Her Sights on the Junction!

Miss Rachel Fordham will roll into our fictional town on Friday, June 18, 2021!

While on vacation she ran across the grave of a camel and it stopped her dead in her tracks. What’s so odd about that? Well, you’ll have to come and see.

And if you leave a comment on her post that day, you’ll be entered in her giveaway.

All I’ve got to say is you need to get over here or you’ll miss out.

We’ll have lots to talk about.

Heather Blanton Returns to Visit!

Historical romance author Heather Blanton will visit us on Friday, June 11, 2021!

Miss Heather has a fascinating post for us. Be thinking about what female from history you admire and why.

As always, people who comment will be entered in a drawing for one of two copies of A Scout for Skyler.

What a deal! You don’t want to miss this.

Head over to the Junction on Friday and prop your feet up on our porch. We’ll love it.
