Building friendships and Thank You.

           Wow, I can't  believe we are already heading into mid October.  My time these days has been well spent hanging out on Twitter and other social outlets getting to know some great authors from the Harlequin Sytycw15 event.
  Now wouldn't you expect in a competition like this for the claws to come out?  Not in this group of fine writers. Good will, well wishes, and a general sense of true kinship abound.  It really has helped restore my love for the craft.
  I don't know how my entry, Protecting the Cowboy's Baby is going to finish out, but we have definitely had some help along the way.  I'd really like to thank a few people. 

Sherri Skanes author of For Love, For Honor for creating all my beautiful Memes for promotion.  See bottom of the post.

C.A. Speakman for the cover. Her covers are so pretty, she makes me want to self pub.  She's so good.

Chris Buono whom out of the blue, surprised me with his many retweets and notes of encouragement. I love it when a friend emerges from the mist wearing angel wings and a halo.

Fiona Marsden for the retweets.

R.C. Matthews who isn't  competitor this year, but would easily, if she wanted to.

Robyn Richards 

Mary Jane Campbell

 Eden S. Clark 

Fallon De Mornay

Liz Madrid

Crystal Wells

Jayne Evans

Susanne Matthews

KC Sprayberry

Tasha Taylor

F.J. Thomas. 

I know I've missed good folks, but I  heart all of you and am so happy to have gotten to know you.   

Good luck with the competition!!!!!

We made it! Now I need your help!

My western romance needs votes to advance to the top 25 in Harlequins Think You Can Write contest.  You need a Wattpad account, but I'd appreciate the votes immensely. ~Elle

Mondays Are For Wattpad

Darn it, I was having a great weekend. The weather in Southern Arizona is beginning to enjoy the first tendrils of Autumn.  I enjoyed a good haunted house, ate good food, drank margaritas at Old Tucson Studios and just had a hell of a good time.  Then came Monday.    
 Currently, Protecting the Cowboy's Baby, my Harlequin So You Think You Can Write entry, has enjoyed over four thousand reads, plenty of votes and positive comments, and sometime this week we will know if it makes the  top fifty, whereupon Wattpad users will have the power to vote their favorites into the top twenty five...  If you haven't joined Wattpad, you should.  There are some really, really great stories by talented authors there.  Plus, it's a good way to interact with the writer and voice your opinion even as the work is being written.   Two of my favorites are;

I'm in love with an invisible man.   Also a Sytycw entry,  I couldn't stop reading it. 
Zac Baggins fan fic, you got mail.  Funny. Creative.

Okay, maybe Monday isn't so bad...I'll just go on Wattpad and find some new favs. 

Now...where's the coffee?



Hear Ye! Everyone gather around!

Waves enthusiastically hello!  I can't keep the smile off my face and I wanted to update all of you on this weekend.  So, Saturday, ...
