It's here!

That's right, April's big giant A-Z  Blogfest is upon us, beginning tomorrow. As a reminder, the overall theme for my posts is 1881, the year my book takes place, and a few brief (and I do mean brief!) bits about some characters and places that figure in the story -

Katherine Kennedy has it all; she’s beautiful, she’s wealthy, and she’s engaged to the perfect man: Antonio D'Salvatore. There’s just one problem. She can’t marry him. Worse yet, she has no idea why. All she knows is there is suddenly nothing she wants, not Antonio, or any of the other hundred thousand things money can buy.

Jack McCabe comes home from the war with a pretty medal and a lot of ugly pictures in his head. He has little in the way of possessions, less in the way of wealth, nowhere to go and no one to go anywhere with. All he has is a vague sense of discontent, a restlessness that will not abate.

Separately, they are drawn to Paradise Tours on the privately owned Cristobel Island. There they meet Louis Cade, a man who offers them the unimaginable, something neither can quite believe until they actually find themselves over 125 years in the past, 1881 to be exact.

For Jack McCabe it’s the adventure he always dreamed of – until he meets a beautiful but deadly train robber. Katherine can't believe an ignorant bounty hunter has mistaken her for a criminal – until she sees the picture, which looks exactly like her.

Set in the old west, this is a tale of mistaken identity, romance, and murder.


There's a link to buy at the top of my sidebar, just above the link to the A- Z list, should you be interested, but I'll try NOT to keep mentioning the fact because that would be BORING!

Now, what are you doing this month? Taking a well-deserved break from blogging? Joining in the A - Z fun? Just happy it's finally Spring? Do tell.

 I can't wait to have flowers on my porch like this again.


  1. Flowers are so pretty. I love when they pop up.

    Happy A/Z game. Enjoy and boogie boogie.

  2. Yay Marcy! Congrats on your book.

  3. We get a Wild West history lesson - that will be fun!
    My posts are all written and formatted, photos sized and ready, and I even have the first two prescheduled.

  4. Your book looks awesome. I LOVE the cover-and your idea for your A to Z. I'm taking a break in April, but then I've been taking a break for a while. Hopefully May will be a different story:)

  5. Since you asked...I'm heading for a beach in California today. :D

    Congrats on the release! And mention away. Put your novel's title in neon lights if you want.

  6. Centering your A to Z blogging around 1881 sounds like a very cool idea. It'll be interesting to read the tidbits you share and makes for a great way to use some of that back story research that didn't get to make it into the novel itself.

  7. I'll be popping around, reading A-Z's. I'm especially looking forward to yours...

  8. Hi Marcy.
    This is a pre-AtoZ Challenge visit as one of the assistants representing Alex's Team Ninja Minions.
    See you around on the A to Z circuit!

  9. The weather just turned chilly here, so I'm not so celebrating the spring. (It's been "spring" here since December.) Yes, I'm doing A to Z. and I've got three or four papers due (and other homework that I'm not doing at the moment...).


If you're interested in my blog I'm interested in your comments.
