So You Think You Can Write 2013

Published October 7, 2013 by Lorraine Nelson - Author

It’s that time of year again when Harlequin/Mills & Boon pull out all the stops to concentrate on entries. I didn’t think I was going to enter this year due to health and personal reasons (and yes, lack of time) but an idea hit and I ran with it. A Bid For Love is now up on the site.


He wants a Twinkie. She wants granola.

When the acreage next door comes up for bid, Dustin Granger attends the auction hoping to obtain the property for his growing herd. Along with the creek running through the property, his cattle need more grazing land. What he doesn’t need or want is a city girl outbidding him to establish an organic farm.

Meredith McRae inherits a small fortune from a distant uncle and decides to invest in her future. The estate she’s come to bid on has everything she needs and no neighboring cowboy was going to thwart her…regardless how handsome.

Interested? Want to read more? Here’s the direct link to my chapter. I’d appreciate some comments, shares, and tweets. 🙂 Wish me luck!

LN 2-goodDid you know…?

Saturday, October 5th, marked the second anniversary of my being a published author. I am so glad that Evernight Publishing took a chance on me and published Zakia and the Cowboy. I’ve learned so much by working with my editors, there and elsewhere. Stay tuned for the cover reveal of Book 6 in my Thunder Creek Ranch series, A Bride for the Taking, releasing October 9th.

It is my sincere wish that I never stop learning and am able to craft entertaining stories for you for years to come.

Thank you, my friends, for your support. Love you all! And to prove it I’m going to pick one name from the comments on this post to receive a free download of their choice. Just answer these questions:

What is your opinion on writing contests?

Have you read any of my books?

If so, did it provide entertainment and enjoyment?

What did you like/dislike about the story/stories?

I value your input. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
