Good Thursday morning everyone! I’ve been telling you about a manuscript that has been in the works. I know I’ve been a little secretive about this one, but I wanted to make sure that the concept worked. Well the outline is complete and I see the whole story in my mind and I feel it in my heart, if only my fingers typed as fast as my brain tells the story.
The exciting thing is I made the decision yesterday to enter it in the So You Think You Can Write contest over at Harlequin and Wattpad. This was a hard decision because this manuscript is not complete yet. That means that I have to hit the 50,000 word mark in less than a month. Good grief! But I need a little help from me peeps here. If you get a chance, could you please go over to the link, https://www.wattpad.com/myworks/48304085-tuscany, and let me know what you think. Please be honest. If you like it then please vote for it because the more votes I get the better chance I have of getting past round one.
I’ve entered this contest before and had great results. Two years ago I entered “Finding the Right Time” in this contest and made it past round two. That was exciting. I received so many great responses for that book on the contest site.
Another bit of news is that Chase is almost completed. For those of you following the “Five Oaks Ranch” series, then you know this is the one I’ve been so excited about. Chase is the rogue of the Cauthen brood and his story has pulled at me harder than any of the other ones. I can’t wait for you to meet this stubborn cowboy. You’ll fall in love instantly.
Just a reminder, today is Thursday people, that means the weekend is almost here. Since my son started back to school Monday, I’ve been getting up earlier, so I can’t wait to sleep in Saturday. Not that I will, my body wants up at seven, even on Saturdays.
So, as always, good writing and May God Bless You!

I read the presentation. I’d find it even more intriguing if “foul play” were a bit more detailed – why kind of foul play? is it a murder on the farm that needs solving? is it the foreman’s dark past? My two cents
I’ll see what I can do about expanding on that part. The contest rules only give you 100 words for the pitch, but I might can add some on the front paragraph. Good point! Thanks for the input 🙂
I changed the intro. Go by and see if it’s a little more intriguing…
Much better! Now I’m intrigued 🙂
It’s amazing how different something sounds when read through another’s eyes. Thanks for the input! Hope all is going well with you. I’m working on the questions for that interview. Hope to have them to you this weekend.
