Things I love Thursday!

Happy Thursday!!
WOW! What the difference 20 degrees makes! Kentucky is thawing out from the polar vortex and let me tell you, we are happy to see it go away. Luckily I don't have to go out everyday to a job outside of my house so I snuggled in my office and did a lot of writing. I did venture out a few times when my guys wanted to go somewhere, but they were as content as me with staying in.

Everything Thursday I'm going to be doing a new post on things I'm lovin'!! I want you to share with me in the comment section things you are lovin' right now! Once a month I'm going to try something you are lovin' and give you a PRIZE! It might be one of the things I'm lovin' in return!

Here is what I'm lovin' now!

I'm totally diggin' Katy Perry's song Dark Horse. It reminds me of my Magical Cures Mystery Series and I could totally see a movie trailer for the series with this song playing!

 I'm so lovin' leopard print! This was an awesome little gem I found at New York and Company for only $6!! I ended up buying all they had and giving them as Christmas gifts because I loved them so much!

OH! These little goodies are from the Gluten Free brand Lucy's. There are several different flavors, but I'm over indulging on the chocolate chip ones right now!

So...what are you lovin' this Thursday?

  1. The song "Chocolate" by The 1975.

    Dragonflies because it is the pattern I decided to use for my molded stained glass lamp class.

  5. Hey, I know Lisa Wells!!! HI, Lisa and Tanya. So fun to find both of you on here. I'm lovin' the seasonal Limited Edition Thomas' English muffins--In particular, Cinnamon Vanilla (they make your breath smell like vanilla!) and Banana. Yum. I can't wait to read some of your books.

Easter and the Derby?

Okay..
Easter is in April and the Derby is in May! But here in Kentucky and the south, we don't have Easter without the Derby pie!



Kentucky Derby Pie
(from my mama~Linda Lowry)
My mama’s Derby Pie is smack your mama good! It’s a southern pie with walnuts and chocolate chips. You can use pecans in substitute for the walnuts, but I really like my walnuts!



Ingredients: ½ cup melted butter
1 cup sugar ½ cup flour 2 beaten eggs 1 tsp. vanilla extract ¾ cup Walnuts or pecans (your choice not both!) ¾ cup chocolate chips (or more if you really want it gooey!)
Directions Mix in the order that’s written under the ingredients. This is very important. Pour the mixture into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.



Enjoy this amazing video of an artist decorating eggs. 



Happy happy Easter!!

And they're off....

WOW! I had a super busy weekend. It was filled with fun and fear!  On Saturday our son Austin was in charge of his fraternity alumni/parent weekend at Keeneland Racetrack.


Now...y'all know I love horse racing and Keeneland. I grew up going to the races and Keeneland is literally fifteen minutes from my childhood home. Friends of my family started Keeneland and still own it today. So...I'm pretty at home there. 
It was opening weekend, which meant there were probably around 40k people there. 40,000 PEOPLE!!! 

(These little jockeys are so cute. They have the names of winners on their little boards.) 
The food line is 1 1/2 hours long to stand in...not to mention the bathroom. You don't think that sounds like fun?? It is! We get there and tailgate on "The Hill." It's the cute name for the grassy area on Keeneland where you can tailgate all day long and never see a horse. But it's the thrill and inside that I love. 
There are two races an hour so there's …

How To Get Reviews For Your Novel

I don't care what anyone says....reviews are important.



I hear a lot of authors that say they don't rely on reviews to read their books and they are full of it. That is why we have reviews and review sites like Goodreads, right?

I'm not saying that you have to read the reviews your novel gets, but reviews are important. They will help you market your novel, especially if you are self published.

Nowadays, more and more review sites are accepting self published authors to review. So you better be sure that your book is the best it can possibly be or you won't get the reviews you want.

Regardless, you need reviews.

Here are a few ways I get reviews for my novels:

1) Goodreads giveaways.

Taking advantage of the giveaway on Goodreads is a great way to get reviews. I offer three copies of my book when it's released using this Goodreads feature. I hold the giveaway for a month and get thousands of requests.

Once Goodreads announces the three winners, I send them a book co…
