No big doings here. We’re planning a quiet day at home taking care of my daughter’s puppy while she and her husband are enjoying the festivities.

Some pizza and wine later on, while binge watching some Game of Thrones. (I have a lot of catching up to do to get ready for the new season.)

I also plan on getting in some writing time and I need to continue to promote my Hearts in Orbit series.

About Mackenzie Lucas

Mackenzie Lucas is an avid reader of genre fiction. She writes contemporary and paranormal romance, and listens to an eclectic mix of music. She loves a good story, whether it’s an erotic short, a full-length romance novel, or the narrative slice-of-life found in country music. In any story, emotional integrity and authenticity are most important to her as well as a big dose of romping hot sexual tension. She enjoys smart-mouthed, sexy heroines, hunky alpha heroes who know how to take care of their women, and plot twists that surprise her, but most of all, she just wants to experience the satisfying emotional arc of a character falling in love and finding what he or she needs most in life.

Geek God

Click the picture to check out Victoria’s amazing Geek God.

 

 

Today’s topic comes from Victoria Barbour – If your life was a romance novel, what subgenre would it be, and why would your heroine be amazing? Also, what would you call it? Can you write a blurb for it?

 

 

Subgenre: Lets label it a steamy contemporary that just accidentally got shelved with the sweet romances.

Why my heroine is amazing: They say that behind every famous man there a great woman standing behind him. To stand behind a not-so-famous man, especially one who wants to be a romance writer… that’s amazing!

 

Title: Sleepy in Sheboygan

Hey, I even made a cover:

Sleepy in Sheboygan

Blurb:

Passion erupts with all the intensity of Leave It To Beaver as retired sexagenarians Laurie and Steve leave their home town of 37 years to move to the big city. Waistlines expand rapidly with the discovery of each new fabulous restaurant and heads spin in the tasting rooms of numerous local wineries.

As winter closes in on them, that quiet new home in the quiet neighborhood sizzles with each new episode of Top Chef they consume.

But when Steve oversleeps on garbage day, it’s all they can do to get the bags to the curb on time.

Sure to spark an afternoon nap, Sleepy in Sheboygan is the first book in the Are You Kidding Me? He’s Making This A Series? series.

Falling Stars

If you’ve just hopped over from Xio Axlerod’s blog,or are stating your hop here, welcome to a day of firsts.

 

And don’t forget to check out Xio’s amazing Falling Stars:

 

 

Mountain Fire

Today on our blog hop Brenda Margriet provided our topic: Let’s talk about “Firsts.” Everyone can choose their top three “First” memories and write about those (they don’t have to be on the list here). Some suggestions are: First book you remember reading (or being read to you). First romance novel you fell in love with. First “big” trip (eg. out of country, out of state/province, without parents). First love/kiss. First pet. First Christmas/other holiday (eg. when you were a child, after you were married, after your first child.)

 

 

So lets dive in. Here are my three “firsts.”

My first book love:

Conan

My early years were spent with my nose in a comic book most of the time. I loved stories, but was not much of a fan of words without pictures. Until I stumbled upon Robert E. Howard’s Conan series about the age of fourteen. Suddenly I had no trouble drawing the pictures in my mind. It’s what started my love of reading.

 

My first Romance:

Nora1

You never forget your first romance. Mine was Enchanted by Nora Roberts. My wife handed it to me after checking it out at the library and said, “You might like this.” Boy did I ever.

 

My first published book:

Cover62

Swiftly Half Cover3

Cover created in Microsoft Paint. A self-publishing experiment. It had it’s issues, but it was all mine. It still is. And if you’d like a copy, I’ve got it up for FREE today. New cover, and a bit more editing: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0077T6F06
