January Updates and Information

Happy 2019! I have to admit that it feels rather odd to say that. It seems like the years are flying by, and it's a toss-up if I want them to continue at this pace or to slow down. I'm eager for some big happenings in 2020 (like, say, getting my rights back to my [...]

Deleted Scene ~ In the Land of Gold #sweetandspicyromance #romance #historicalromance #amreading #amreadingromance

I can't remember why this scene was deleted, but I can guess it was because of story flow. After Cora wakes up in Flynn's tent, hungover and failing to remember much, they argue and she storms out.

Historical Landmarks ~ Burkel Estate #romance #historicalromance #amreading #amreadingromance

When I took my research trip to Montgomery, I had wanted to stop by Slave Haven Underground Railroad Museum in Memphis. Unfortunately, time got away from us and we couldn't stop. I still would love to visit the place, though. Maybe one day I will. Even though I wasn't table to see it in person, [...]
