Two Special Ladies in One Fantastic Post...


Can't believe it's FRIDAY already...

I've missed you guys--I've been immersed in writing, and it's been amazing. But I am up for air, and grateful to be part of TWO lovely events. Elizabeth Seckman's HEALING SUMMER Blog Tour and Carol Kilgore's cover reveal for SOLOMON'S COMPASS.

First, Elizabeth asked me for a prompt, and I gave her "And that is why the Seckmans are the best."

So let me turn you over to Liz:


You asked for it Morgan! 
Meet the Seckmans…cue “The Jettsons” theme song…
Meet Chad Seckman…
His boys, oh boy!
No daughters…just cuties
Liz, his wife! 
Doot-doot-doot-doo-doo and so on.
The Jettsons! What memories…and what a let-down. This century was supposed to be so much MORE! I want my Rosie!!!
A flying car and pills of food from a vending machine. I would never have to hear, “Mom, what is there to eat?” again!
But alas, we are just normal. 
Mom, dad, four boys, and more pets than a sane mom would allow (two dogs, a cat, a frog, a hamster, and two bowls of fish). 
Our home is our castle and duct tape is the bond that holds it together. Most everything has been broken, patched and repaired at least once…possibly twice. But my kids are happy. And healthy. Smart like me and handsome like their dad. 
And not a single one is on probation.
What more could a girl ask for?

LOL! I love it, Liz. And we are all SO STOKED for HEALING SUMMER:

Maybe Love, Not Time, Heals All Wounds
Ditched at the altar…biopsied for cancer…Mollie Hinkle is having a bona fide bitch of a summer. When life sucks so hard it takes your breath away, what's a girl to do? Pack a bag, grab a few friends, and leave the past and the worry in the rear view mirror. What wounds can’t be healed by a drive across the Heartland, where quarter flips at cross roads determine the route and the future? All roads lead to Craig, the second son and bad boy of the haughty Coulter line. Has fate brought her to the miniscule Montana town to find happily ever after or will it just break her heart?
“Healing Summer” is the second book in the Coulter Men Series.

And what's great, is that on Liz's blog page, you can vote for your favorite post/prompt in the comments. The winner will receive a $25 gift card. 

Liz, thanks for being here today. And everyone, don't forget to check out HEALING SUMMER on Goodreads and Amazon.  Oh! And here's the cool Rafflecopter thingie:

Next, I'm pleased to highlight Carol Kilgore's SOLOMON'S COMPASS!



When U.S. Coast Guard Commander Taylor Campbell discovers her uncle’s drowning death was murder, she must determine the killer’s identity in order to prevent another murder. Jake Solomon’s job is to make sure Taylor isn’t the next victim.


Really great, right? So EXCITED for you, Carol. 




Carol Kilgore is an award-winning author of several published short stories and many essays and articles. Solomon's Compass is her second novel, a blend of mystery, suspense, and romance she calls Crime Fiction with a Kiss--always at least one crime; always a love story. Carol and her Coast Guard husband live in San Antonio, Texas, with two herding dogs that like nothing better than pack time on the patio. 

You can find Carol here:

  15. I love the mountains in the background of Elizabeth's cover, and I love the subtle colors on Carol's cover. Congratulations to both of them!

    I don't know if this group still exists, but I've heard of a national group called Queen of the Castle, for women who are moms to only boys.
