Wedding Fever by Sheila Seabrook

Wedding Fever by Sheila Seabrook

Book 22 of the Bandit Creek series has finally arrived and – you guessed it – it’s WEDDING FEVER by Sheila Seabrook. What? Not surprised? You mean someone let out my secret? 🙂

First off, WEDDING FEVER is a novella, like the rest of the Bandit Creek books. I had a blast writing this story. Well, not for the first four chapters … but then something special happened. That magic that happens when I’m glaring at my computer screen, wondering why I ever chose this writerly profession, and wishing it was time to clean toilets instead.

Story Magic. Where does it come from? And do I really care? Yeah, I do, because without the magic, writing a story is just plain hard work. And that’s exactly how WEDDING FEVER began.

But then I started to write Chapter Four and Liz’s daughter popped onto the pages of my manuscript. She was fully formed and naughty with a smart mouth that reminded me of the days when I had teenagers living in my house. You love them, but then they open their mouth …

But I’m getting off topic. You’re here to find out about my story.

If you’ve already checked out my Books page, then you can skip down to the end of this post where I tell you all about the Facebook party and prizes. But for those of you who haven’t read the book blurb, I’ll repeat it here:

WEDDING FEVER by Sheila Seabrook

Bandit Creek’s star reporter is about to have her life turned upside down!

Liz Templeton lives a quiet life with her mother, her mother’s best friend, her boss, and – oh yeah – the ghost of her teenage daughter. When her ex-husband returns to town to hunt for the legendary Lost Lake treasure, she doesn’t count on the pair of matchmaking mothers who are planning her wedding or her daughter’s obsession with the man who might be her dad.

Liz has one chance to stop her family from driving her insane … and falling head over heels in love with her ex isn’t part of the plan.

Review for WEDDING FEVER

“Sheila Seabrook’s WEDDING FEVER is a romantic tale involving sunken treasure, lost love, and a ghost that will capture your heart. Once this story has you in its grip, it won’t let go!”Julie Rowe, author of ICEBOUND and NORTH OF HEARTBREAK.

I hope you love reading this story as much as I loved writing it. I laughed. I cried. And I didn’t want to say goodbye to the characters. And if you enjoy WEDDING FEVER, then check out the prequel, a short story titled BABY FEVER, which is part of the Bandit Creek Fool’s Gold anthology.

Pop over to the Bandit Creek Books site and read Carla Roma’s interview with me, check out the excerpt from WEDDING FEVER, buy the book and join the Bandit Creek authors for the Facebook release party where I’m giving away three (3) copies of WEDDING FEVER. I’m also a guest blogger on the RG2E site today where I’m talking about my love of books.

Silent Waters by Trip Williams

Silent Waters by Trip Williams

Only fifteen more days till the release of my own Bandit Creek book. To keep you reading till then, I’d like to introduce Book 21 in the Bandit Creek series, a suspense thriller titled SILENT WATERS by Trip Williams.

Trip has had an exciting life and seriously, with a background like his, how could he do anything but write fiction? His bio states: “Life began on the west coast of British Columbia. Born to beachcombing parents, this new life started out as a full blown adventure. A dresser drawer for a crib aboard a thirty-eight foot tug named the Betty-Louise, the salt water filled his blood and became his first home as they ploughed through the channels and straights of the sunshine coast.”

And now, the teaser for SILENT WATERS…

For Jake McCord, Bandit Creek comes with an expiration date. But when Jake starts to find the bodies of women, whom the town folks have never seen before, that expiration date may become a life sentence.

I had an opportunity to beta read SILENT WATERS and it kept me up until four a.m. What more can a reader ask for?

Read Carla Roma’s interview with author Trip Williams, an excerpt from Silent Waters, buy the book and join the Bandit Creek authors for the Facebook release party.

Check out my story BABY FEVER, part of the Bandit Creek Fool’s Gold anthology. And stay tuned for more information on WEDDING FEVER, the follow up story, out on July 15, 2012.

Are You Directionally Challenged?

Join me over at the Women Unplugged site today where I’m talking about being directionally challenged.

I once directed my husband to my sister’s house.  We didn’t have her address and my husband had never been to her house.

“That looks familiar. Turn left here. Oh, I’m pretty sure we passed the subway, went right, then crossed through the light…”

We ended up on the south-west side of the city instead of the north-east side…
