My First Two Books are Out!

by Kay~Kacey on 6/12/2014

I’m so excited! After so many years of writing, my first two books are out! I started this blog in 2005 as documentation of my writing journey, my photography, and my life. Now we’re at 2014…

I’m a little bit emotional, so please indulge me. To my writer friends from back in the RomEx GEnie days…yes, on dial-up…thanks for sticking with me. I’m excited to see a handful of you publishing this summer too, along with those of you who have already published. Hope to catch up with you at the RWA conference this summer.

For those of you who went through a hundred versions of my book covers, thanks for your opinions. Thanks to my beta readers for your suggestions and critiques. And Margery? I owe you so much for your visit to Anna Maria Island last fall and your encouragement to get back in the game.

Of course I have to thank SuperGuy for his continuing support. Unwavering. Constant. I so heart the man.

So, here are the first two books in the Comfort Crossing series! The ebooks are available now, the paperbacks will be out in a few weeks.

Sometimes, doing the right thing backfires…

Bella Amaud is desperate when she learns her business and the home she lives in with her two boys is about to be whisked out from under her. As she scrambles to maintain her fragile financial security and independence, she fears she may lose more than just The Shop on Main and her home.

Nothing is working out like Bella planned—she finds out the man she is falling for, Owen Campbell, is the businessman at the center of all her problems.

Owen has secretly longed to belong—somewhere—anywhere—his whole life. When he decides to give his long-lost brother, Jake, back his birthright, he unknowingly thwarts his briefly held hope of a place where he can put down roots and a family he longs for.

Nothing is working out like Owen planned—neither Bella nor Jake wants anything to do with him.

How can a man who is used to being in control and a woman determined to make it all on her own find a way to happiness?

The Shop on Main is Book One of the Comfort Crossing series. Bella and her best friends, Jenny and Becky Lee, navigate the heartaches and triumphs of love and life in the small southern town of Comfort Crossing, Mississippi.

Sometimes, mistakes are made for the best of reasons…

When Dr. Clay Miller returns to Comfort Crossing with his two daughters, Jenny Bouchard knows it is time. Time to tell him the truth, no matter the consequences. Clay has a son, Nathan.

From the moment Jenny and Clay see each other again, the attraction still pulsates between them, a fact they both do their best to ignore. Jenny searches for the right moment to tell Clay the truth and a chance to explain—she had made her choice, kept her secret, to protect her son. When Nathan is injured, she knows her time is running out. Jenny fears when the truth is revealed, she will lose not only Clay, but Nathan as well.

But Clay has a secret of his own…

THE LETTER, book three in the Comfort Crossing Series will be available soon.

I appreciate any shares and help to spread the word!


New Puppy

by Kay~Kacey on 5/27/2014

Because we are just crazy people…and I can’t say no to SuperGuy…we have a new puppy. SuperGuy’s farm dog. I have to admit he’s like the most adorable pup ever. (Don’t tell Murphy and Maggie).

Here he is on the ride home. SuperGuy and his little buddy.

The first day he just kind of hung out and tried to figure out this big new world of his.

He actually got named the first day. I know…very unusual for us. We usually take weeks and weeks to name our pets. Meet Jackson. Jack.

He has the cutest little fat tummy. He’s a miniature australian shepard. Blue merle. I think he’ll have one green eye and one blue or part blue/part green eye. I know, just sinkin’ adorable, huh?mini american shepard


You’ll probably see an overload of puppy photos on Facebook for awhile. Sorry. Please indulge me…


The Making of a Garden

by Kay~Kacey on 4/1/2014

I’m finally going to get my garden and I am SO excited!!

Here is SuperGuy playing working with his tractor. He rode the tractor all day…I raked gravel in place all day. I cannot move…

We’re going to do raised bed gardens with gravel pathways between the beds. The garden is in a clay-mucky-area. We’re adding 12 inch boards on top of these base boards.

I’m driving SuperGuy a bit nuts. I want to do organic. Everything organic. So we’re using cedar $ boards instead of treated pine.

Luckily, SuperGuy thought to have the builder put in a spigot up by where we wanted the garden. Nice, close water! (And I think the spigot looks cute, too!)

Oh, here is one of the gardeners 😉 I had on muck boots, but changed to those classy crocs… Don’t you love my hat?? I do!

We’re making 4 4×8 beds, and 2 4×4 higher beds. Then, once the fence is in, we’ll have 18 inch beds all along the fence on the inside.

This is where we rest and drink beer um, water 😉

My pretty, pretty garden. Just needs the dirt now…and the fence to keep out the deer.

I’ll be sure to keep you updated on our progress. After all this work, I hope we’re successful gardeners!
