March News and Goodies

Hello Romance Readers,

Now that spring is here, I hope you are all looking forward to some warmer weather. Here in Oklahoma we are bracing for tornado season.

Spring break is this week, and my daughter and I gave my daughter-in-law a break. We took the Twinadoes overnight and then to the state fairgrounds where the 4H’ers and FFA kiddos were having a show. The little guys were afraid of the mooing and other lusty animals sounds, but we had a good time anyway.

What are you doing to celebrate the arrival of spring? Hit reply and drop me a short note. I'd love to hear from you!

Twinadoes Talk

As much as I love spending time with the Twinadoes (for those who don’t know, they’re my four-year-old twin grandsons), I do find myself saying some very strange things when I’m with them. Here are a few Weird Words I uttered recently:

You know, I get very nervous when you say “Watch this, Bama.”

No, it doesn’t matter if you can still see out of the leg holes, you can’t wear your underwear on your head.

Of course you’re dizzy. You just threw yourself against the wall five times.

Let him out of that choke hold, his face is turning red.

Sit back down in your seat and stop licking the window.

No, sweetheart, you can’t suck milk up your nose from a straw.

Here are the boys trading tastes of ice cream.

What I'm Reading

In this sweet historical romance, Zelly Fuller lives in fear. When her best friend leaves Idyll Wood, she needs to find a way to overcome her fears and stand on her own. Hart Bahr has loved Zelly for five long years. Never acts on his feelings. Instead, he chooses to remain the background, protecting her from afar. When he overhears bullies planning to attack her, he decides it is time to step up as her protector. Can two hearts find their way past their fears or will family secrets keep these ‘friends turned lovers’ apart??

Just So You Know

Let me tell you about Callie's Reading Corner.

I need readers to join my Readers Facebook Group. There we share jokes, memes, funny stories and comments on life. I run contests and post deleted scenes from books and extended epilogues for some of my books. You will also see family trees for my various series (and the names of all the children born of these loving couples), as well as posts to help me name characters. You’ll be the first to see new covers and hear about sales and new releases.  That is also where I build my ARC reader list. If you would like to join us for fun and games, click here .
