Gone Time Traveling for the weekend…guess where…

Traveling back in time again in my WIP…and it’s a doozy…the hardest one I’ve ever done…

A hint…it’s cold and raining and looks like this…where I am?

Time…and a finished m/s…will tell…

Be gone for the weekend…be back soon!

(I hope…unless I get stuck back there…)

While I’m gone, enjoy a trip back to Posey Creek, PA during WW 2 as Kate prepares for the holidays…until her world comes crashing down when her fiancé ships overseas in ‘Christmas Once Again’.

Available at e-tailers everywhere…print and audio book, too.

Time travel back to Christmas 1943 on the home front with my holiday Women’s Fiction novel CHRISTMAS ONCE AGAIN 

——————

On a cold December day in 1955, Kate Arden got on a train to go home for Christmas.

This is the story of what happened when she got off that train. In 1943.

In 1943 Kate Arden was engaged to the man she loved, Jeffrey Rushbrooke. She was devastated and heartbroken when he was called up for wartime duty and later killed on a secret mission in France.

But what if Kate could change that? What if she could warn him and save his life before Christmas?
Or will fate have a bigger surprise in store for her?

Christmas Once Again is a sweeping, heartbreakingly romantic novel – it’s one woman’s chance to follow a different path and mend her broken heart…

What readers are saying about Christmas Once Again:

‘A fabulous book you won’t want to miss’

‘A really beautiful story’

‘Found this book amazing! Would love to read more of her books.’

‘5* from me’

Enjoy National Doughnut Day as we remember Trains and Soldiers in 1943…and of course, donuts.

Doughnuts and Soldiers and Trains in 1943…

It’s National Doughnut Day!!

December 1943

Soldiers, doughnuts, and coffee…a familiar sight every afternoon at the Posey Creek, PA train station when the locomotive pulls in, each rail car filled with hungry servicemen on their way to camp or overseas…

I heard one afternoon during the war, a special train pulled in carrying a very special passenger…

Miss Kate Arden traveling back in time from the future to save the man she loves…

Veterans Day and Doughnut Dollies

I love this fabulous painting outside the Salvation Army Building in Tulare, CA re: the photographer © Karinoza – Dreamstime.com .

(originally posted on A Slice of Orange.net — visit my sister site to meet some wonderful authors and read their posts!)

I was a doughnut dolly.

Back in the day, I served with the U.S. Army in Livorno, Italy. My job was to make coffee and play pool with the troops, set up entertainment and gourmet tours.

And make cookies. I whipped up hundreds and hundreds of cookies. Chocolate chip.

And doughnuts, too. I got help from the mess hall sergeant, a bespectacled guy from the Midwest who let me commandeer his big pots. Along with my Italian liaison, Maria, we’d cook up hot doughnuts and top them with powdered sugar we got from the PX, a sweet favorite with the boys.

Those were the days.

I’m proud of the time I spent with US Army Special Services — I made turkeys, fruitcakes, hot chocolate, and tons of cookies!

So on this Veterans Day I think about all the Doughnut Dollies who helped bring our servicemen and women a touch of home.

Especially on this 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day when the treaty was signed in a railcar in the French forest on the eleventh day of the eleventh month at the eleventh hour.

God bless all those who have served our country. Thank you.

PS — For fun, I put on my old uniform with U.S. Army Service Clubs patch. And yeah, I lost the hat years ago somewhere in Italy.

Under the Yummy Doughnut Tree…National Doughnut Day

doughnut_fetish

I’m a doughnut girl.

Sprinkles, double chocolate, glazed, old-fashioned, and oh my God, I’d give anything for a warm, crispy, gooey apple fritter just about now with my morning java.

So this post will be short and oh so sweet because I’m headed out to the doughnut store.

Before I go, an update on my Kindle Scout book, LOVE ME FOREVER (details  below) — I just found out my book will go up for pre-order around the middle of July. That also means everyone who nominated it will receive their free copy at that time. Nice.

I think this fab news calls for two apple fritters!

Cheers!

Love_Me_Forever_500x798
LOVE ME FOREVER

She wore gray.
He wore blue.
But their love defied the boundaries of war.
And time.

LOVE ME FOREVER is a Kindle Scout selection and will be published soon!! You can read the first 5,000 words HERE. You’ll meet both my heroines and both my heroes in the excerpt. It’s a saga of love and romance and war. Believe me, I walked every road, fought every battle with my characters, even walked around in a hoop skirt to “get it right.”

This is a book of the heart…any questions? Please ask!!

Thanks for stopping by.
