When You Can't Write, Paint!

The thyroid issues have really messed with my head. I no longer get those lines of dialogue, story ideas, or unfolding scenes as I lay down at night. I can't seem to string the words together to make a coherent sentence these days. So to fill in the time until I can get my body and brain straightened out, I've been painting and decoupaging furniture. And hey, it helps buy the groceries when I sell something. Here are a few of the things I've done so far.

New Release! Cowboy Masquerade

There's a new addition to the Lone Star Cowboys series--Cowboy Masquerade. This novella picks up with Doc and Susan's story. You'll also see most of your favorite characters from the Triple S crew.

Dr. John Marshall has spent most of his life moving from town to town, following the rodeo circuit to patch up injured cowboys. Now he's ready to retire, open a practice in a small town somewhere, and enjoy life. His only real regret is that his lifestyle never gave him the chance to marry and have kids. At forty-five, he thinks he's too old to do so now. If he followed in his parents' footsteps, he didn't have too many good years left. 

Susan Hunt is a young widow with three children. Her husband died on the back of a bull three years earlier, and Dr. Marshall has been her rock ever since. He's been there for her through the grieving, the acceptance, he helped her get back on her feet and make a new life for herself and her kids. The one thing he isn't willing to do for her, though, is the one thing she needs the most. It's going to take some ingenuity and a little help from the Triple S crew to help Dr. Marshall see where his future lies.

It's available now on Amazon, and soon on most major retailers.

So far, Blame it on Texas has had over 30,000 free downloads. Do you have your copy yet? You should grab it before I decide to put it back to full price. Amazon link
Blame it on Texas has 153 reviews with an average rating of 4.6 out of a possible 5.

"Another reviewer wrote that "this is everyday people, in their everyday lives, facing everyday problems" and that is such a great way to put it. It is such a refreshing change to see that all these people aren't rich and successful. They are down-home working class individuals who are as real to you as the people next door, maybe more so. This book had everything you would want in a story. This author is great at that and her books are those that no matter how much you try, you cannot put it down. I personally recommend this book and the author to anyone who is looking for a spark of laughter, a spark of sadness and a heavy dose of real life by characters that you will fall in love with."

"One of the very best books I have read. I AM A TEXAN You have found the true pulse of small town Texas. I enjoyed every page. Please continue. As this really moves my heart. Thank you again."

"Just finished "Blame it on Texas" & if Ms. Scott's other books are this good, then I'm definitely a fan of hers. Money is extremely tight for us right now, but thankfully this book was offered for free & I downloaded it. And am I happy that I did.....I'm one of those that re-reads books that they love & want to enjoy again & again; this book will be re-read several times! :-)

I really like her style of writing, thought she did an excellent job telling a story that not only flowed but you didn't want to stop reading it. Or I didn't at least, but I had to as it was getting too late last night & I really needed to be in bed. Believe me, I picked it up as soon as I was able to the next morning. She made me laugh, cry, roll my eyes at some of the things that happen in the story....Ms. Scott even had me liking the character Nancy toward the end there.

If you want a good read, a story that keeps moving along, some lightheartedness/laughter, even a bit of suspense & yet not page after page of descriptive writing of how the ranch looked at dusk/or whatever.....then I think you'll enjoy "Blame it on Texas"".

Coming in August! A brand new series about 5 brothers and one sister--The Carter Family--set along the Red River in Cooke County, Texas. I'll post here as soon as it goes live.
