Liliana Hart, A Rising Star

Friends, I want to tell you about a young author who is shooting to the top. Liliana Hart is a member of Yellow Rose RWA, the chapter I belong to. As I’ve gotten to know her, I have come to admire this amazing woman more and more. She is not only a terrific writer, she’s also a wife and mother, and a mentor who willingly shares her knowledge with her fellow authors. Her books are fast paced, well thought out and suspenseful. If you have not read any of her work, I highly recommend you give her a try.

You might want to start with her #1 best seller Dirty Little Secrets, which is on special today for .99. I’ve read it and loved it! Here are the links.


Blogging Today

Friends, I should have announced this much earlier, but it’s been a crazy day, plus I managed to lock myself out of my blogger account. Sigh. Anyway, I have a blog running today on Sweethearts of the West . The subject is Kiowa History and Mythology.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Kiowa, they were one of the great horse tribes of the southern U.S. plains. They allied with the mighty Comanches and held off Anglo expansion into their territory for decades. The two tribes were infamous for their brutal raids, but one thing I’ve learned in my months of research about the Kiowa is that they were also a spiritual people with close family ties.

Included in my blog is a beautiful painting of three Kiowa men done in 1898. If you’re interested in reading more, please stop by:

Great Reviews Bring a Smile!

I woke up today not feeling so hot. I have bronchitis and the coughing kept me awake much of the night. I really needed a pick-me-up, something beside coffee, my drug of choice. Not too eager to get busy and write, I idly checked out my books on Amazon just to see how they’re doing. And to my delight, I found a couple of fairly new and very nice customer reviews for Dashing Druid. They made me smile.

Without further ado, I’ll share them with you. Hey, that rhymes! Open-mouthed smile

Just finished book 3 of the Texas Druids it’s an awesome series to read! Got to read it to see!!!   ~~Reviewed by mommie85360

I liked this book as much as the first one. It showed how sometimes real people can be extraordinary. In this story, you have two people who have been injured emotionally and fight their attraction toward each other and eventually give in. It brings up not only the race hatred of the Native Americans but also of the Irish. We are a nation built by many races but still have to remember that race did play a big part on how we saw each other. (review excerpt)
