January Comes Again 2019

It’s a new year, starting (more or less) like every year before it. My family is healthy and happy; our home is comfortable and a refuge; we are gainfully employed to see us through financial needs.

I thank God for it all.

Have you chosen a new habit to either break or embrace yet? I stopped calling this process “resolutions” because that never got me anywhere. BUT, habits can be learned and manipulated all you want!

This year is the year I learn to use a planner. So far, so good. I’ve chosen the Happy Planner system because it enables me to add and remove pages as I need them. I don’t really need much of a calendar set up beyond the two-page spread most planners offer, but I do need pages for the month where I can organize my day job work and give me the ability to add family and writing life, as well.

My Happy Planner

If you’d like to know more about this process, please sign up for my newsletter (if you haven’t already!). I’ve included links to planner and bullet journal examples you might want to investigate.

If you haven’t subscribed to my newsletter, than you might not know I have a new series on the horizon taking place in a sweet little town called Paterra Crossing, located just down the valley from Hawk Ridge – my Circle D series. It’s a mining town established back in the 1860’s where the founding families remain active in the decisions regarding the town’s future – a future filled with interesting townspeople and the new folks that find contentment in Paterra Crossing.

Think: Northern Exposure meets Hart of Dixie

New Series coming 2020

Until next time, make Reading a Priority!

Welcome to my new project

It took a writing retreat in a quaint mountain town with my fellow authors Candee Fick and Megan Menard over the Halloween weekend to kick-start a creative passion I thought the good Lord had shadowed forever. Oh, the thought of stories never left my overly romantic mind, but the ability to string words together had gone MIA.  Over the past 3 days, I’ve recaptured the joy of writing and have even discovered things about my characters I didn’t know. My next book is all plotted and waiting for words to fill the page.

I’m inviting everyone to come along on this journey with me. We’ll be discovering the secrets of a small mountain town in Colorado (delightfully similar to the one where I’ve just spent incredible creative renewal time.) Three families founded the town of Paterra Springs in the early 1860s. We have ranchers, resort owners, and even a working mineral mine.

Over the coming months, I’ll be gathering my thoughts and sharing photos as the story comes alive. If you have any thoughts or comments, please share them!

Oh, BTW, if you aren’t on my regular facebook page, I’m happy to repost a picture of the newest member of our family. “Puppy” now has a name, and her name is Dobby. Help us welcome this cute bundle of Corgi to the family!

New Year brings revisions!

It’s snowing in Longmont, Colorado. Nothing like the wicked snow and cold most of the rest of the country is getting. This is more a light, constant flaking that has given us around 4″ since the pre-dawn hours. I love it.

Our snowy weather gives me the perfect excuse to sit down and work on the revisions to my latest book, Second Chance Ranch. It’s been 3 years since we met Gabe Davidson, (Love Inspired Books) and the folks at the Circle D Ranch. Gabe met Melanie Hunter and her son, Jason and found Happily Ever After over a broken down truck and a church barbeque.

Now it’s time to tell Zac Davidson’s story. We didn’t see Zac in Rocky Mountain Hero, but we learned he’s the youngest son of Grace and Martin Davidson, a wild child, and the Chief Financial Officer of Davidson Enterprises. We met Jennifer O’Reilly, his childhood friend and sweet nurse with a big heart…who also holds the upper hand on a ranch Zac’s been wanting to buy.

Their story tells of love and sacrifice…and of course hurt beyond compare.

Look for Second Chance Ranch early 2014 on Amazon. Stop by Seekerville on Feb 6th for my monthly blog post and I’ll be debuting my gorgeous cover!

As the launch date approaches, I’ll be having a contest for copies of Second Chance Ranch and a “High Country Colorado” gift basket. Keep checking back.

I’m excited about Zac and Jen’s story. I hope you will enjoy it, too!

Amanda Cabot in Seekerville today

Stop by Seekerville and discover the mysteries of writing the historical novel.
is my guest and she’s ready to field any questions you might have. Come join the fun.
Don’t forget, there’s always a giveaway in Seekerville. Just leave a comment for your name to be included in the drawing.

From the time that she was seven, Amanda Cabot dreamed of becoming a published author, but it was only when she set herself the goal of selling a book by her thirtieth birthday that the dream came true.  A former director of Information Technology, Amanda has written everything from technical books and articles for IT professionals to mysteries for teenagers and romances for all ages.  She’s delighted to now be a fulltime writer of Christian historical romances.  Her Texas Dreams trilogy received critical acclaim; Christmas Roses was a CBA bestseller; and a number of her books have been finalists for national awards, including ACFW’s Carol award. 

She’s planning on instant success. What she didn’t plan on was love.
When Elizabeth Harding arrives in Cheyenne to open a medical practice, she is confident that the future is as bright as the warm Wyoming sun. Certain she’ll have a line of patients eager for her services, she soon discovers the town may not welcome a new physician—especially a female one. Even Jason Nordling, the handsome young attorney next door, seems to disapprove of her chosen profession.
When a web of deceit among Cheyenne’s wealthiest residents threatens to catch Elizabeth and Jason in its snare, they must risk working together to save one of Elizabeth’s patients, even if it means falling in love.
