Get ready for St. Patrick's day

This is from the organizer of the St.Patrick's day Blog Hop

Hi Y'all!

Guess what guys! On Friday March 16th, we're having a Blog Hop to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and wearing green! Over 120 authors are going to be telling anything they can about being Irish, celebrating the day, wearing green, drinking green beer... pretty much anything!

Each author will be giving away a prize. Like a swag pack, gift cards, ebooks, print books, and so much more.

PLUS We have TWO Grand Prizes for TWO different winners! *gasp*

Grand Prize 1: Winner's Choice of a Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet

Grand Prize 2: Winner's Choice of a $90 Amazon or Barnes&Noble Gift Card

Isn't that exciting? LOL. So you as a reader - what do you have to do? Well, come on over to these websites on Friday March 16th and comment on as many as you want. The grand prize winners will be chosen at random from the commenters - meaning you can comment on EACH blog - meaning 120 entries to the grand prize.

Sounds great right? Come on over and wear your green and win some prizes!!!

Why I like Summer

It's February 13th – spring is 5 weeks away. But where I live in Canada that doesn’t instantly mean warmer weather, returning birds or budding trees. It can mean bitterly cold, blowing snow or my personal favourite – freezing rain.

This is my neighbourhood.

I like taking long walks up that road – even on a winter's day. (Look carefully, the road is to the left of the trees.) It is peaceful and I can let my mind wander while I plot out a scene in my latest book or figure out what's for supper.

But I like summer. Somewhere I heard a great line about it - Flip flops + Sunshine = Fun Time

As a romance writer – this is one of my favourite quotes about summer - In every girl's life; there's a boy she'll never forget and a summer where it all began. Author Unknown

But this is why I love summer. I get to enjoy my other passion.

Yes - that is a bee butt sticking out of my hosta.

What's your favourite season?
