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.

New Release!

The long-awaited sequel to Lone Star Justice is finally available on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. Still waiting for distribution to the other vendors.

This is Deputy Cody Wills' story. Cody has a new partner, a female one. He's not thrilled, but he's determined to make the best of it and hope that Rand will eventually come around and make things like they were before. But Greendale is changing. It's no longer the sleepy little county it once was. Civilization is creeping closer, bringing more crime and more traffic with it.

Charlie Booker is looking for peace. She's just returned home from a multi-tour Middle East assignment, bringing with her nightmares and guilt. Taking a job with a small town sheriff's departments seems like just what she's looking for, but she's about to get an education she won't forget.

In other news, Blame it on Texas is still free on Amazon and Smashwords, and for this week only, until March 8, Satisfaction Guaranteed and Superstition are free on Smashwords during ebook week.

And if you haven't read Lone Star Justice yet, book One in the Southern Justice series, be sure to get a copy at your favorite retailer.

My new kitchen has inspired me to be more active about meal planning, shopping, and making new things. I got a refurbished Kitchen Aid Pro 600 for Christmas, so I've been playing with it a bit. Last night I made chocolate chip cookies with walnuts, and today I made butter.

Yes, butter. Never knew it could be so easy to do. I had 3 pints of whipping cream expiring, so I decided to use it rather than waste it. Hubby wanted me to make ice cream with it, so I took out about half the cream when it was whipped to the right consistency for ice cream, stirred in a can of Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, a teaspoon of vanilla, and a can of chopped up peaches, and stuck that in the freezer.

I turned the mixer back on and let it do its thing until I had a mixture of butter and buttermilk. Poured the buttermilk into a Mason jar to use later for baking, rinsed the butter in cold water and added some sea salt, formed it into a ball, and put it in my butter jar.

In all, it took about 30 minutes to make a quart of ice cream and probably about a half-pound or more of whipped butter. And I saved wasting $6 worth of cream.

Just call me Tori Homemaker from here on out. :)
