Saturday Surprise — and a FLASH CONTEST to win an early copy of WANT YOU TO WANT ME!!

July 18, 2020

Hey ho everyone! We survived the wedding! It was a gorgeous, perfect day and everything went according to plan. Sadly, we had about 20 people cancel the week of the wedding, but we suspected that would happen. How hilarious are these wedding favors?

I’ve been in recovery mode all week. Happy as I was to have the entire family here, it was a super busy time and both Mr. James and I were exhausted.

NOW we’re gearing up for the release of WANT YOU TO WANT ME, book 2 in the Want You series. I got my box of author copies just yesterday!


Isn’t it pretty? Especially next to the bridesmaid bouquet from last weekend? I admit I still turn giddy every time I get author copies of one of my books 😍

HERE’S THE FLASH CONTEST INFO — leave a comment — that’s it!


Also, the winner from the June wrap-up post and recipient of a signed copy of Miss Firecracker is: Teri A Mays! Teri, email me– with your info so I can get your book sent out on Monday also 🙂

Thanks everyone for stopping by the blog today — we’ll have more contests and fun stuff coming up so stay tuned to my social media!


OH – PS — the audiobook for Silver-Tongued Devil is up everywhere!

    I tried so hard to go out west to see my Rough Rider area 2 weeks ago, but my husband decided to have a heart attack instead. Luckily, we stopped in Rochester, Mn to pick up our son whose was going along. So instead of a week in South Dskota and Wyoming we spent it at the Mayo Clinic. So next year he stays home and I get my Rough Rider adventure. Give Mister James a big hug and make him promise no heart surprises. CPR is a bitch!!! Love your stories and hope to see South Dakota and Wyoming next year.🤗💖🤗💖🤗💖

I’m going to be 72 in October and I still get every book the day it comes out. Once I start a book thats it for me I have to finish it… The waiting seems interminable specially at my age. I read your first book and will read till I can’t anymore. Thank you for keeping my mind and heart young.

  269. Clare Flack said:

    Congrats on the wedding and loving the party favors so cool. The flowers are so pretty.


    “Leave a comment she says, it’ll be fun she said!!” Where do I start, Silver Tongue, you’ve knocked it out of the park again!! It was fun, it had laugh out loud moments, intense tension, I loved the ending I feel it closed all the gaps from Gone Country. I had a big gut feeling they swapped after/during reading Gone country I just didn’t know how you were going to do it. Boy did you do it and after reading everything you’ve published so far I JUST LOVE HOW YOU CAN SURPRISE ME TIME AND TIME AGAIN!!!! One of the things that makes me return to your books is even though you have multiple series’ none of your writing is predictable nor do I find myself thinking well this is familiar like some authors.
    So thank you once again for another cracker of a book.

    Ps I had to pause The Voice (Aust) Grand finale because the singing is so amazing it was distracting me from my writing lol 🙂

  271. Marianne said:

    Congrats on your daughters wedding! And thanks so much for the chance!

  272. Kathy Rich said:

    I can’t wait for this book love all your books. thanks for a chance .

  274. Sherri Atwood said:

    I can’t wait to read Nolan and Gabi’s story. I love all of Lund’s and I’m looking forward to diving in to their world again❣️

  275. Anna DeTellem said:

    I am still partial to the McKays, okay a little more than partial as they are a favorite to re-read or listen to but I do love your other books so I can’t wait for this next installment.

  276. Kellie Rossow said:

    Love each one of your books!!! I believe I have reread each twice (or more) AND never get tired of learning about each character. The Lund’s, McKay’s, Blacktop Cowboys are all very interesting and there is a new layer that I find every time I reread the books. Keep writing and I will keep reading!

  277. Nancy Jones said:

    Thanks for the chance.

  278. Christina Anderson said:

  283. Tonya said:

    I would love a chace to win this. I have only read your blacktop cowboy series, my library dosen’t carry the rough riders series in full.
