Linda Broday: Forging Ahead

Christmas is behind me. The decorations have been put away and I've got to get serious about the extra pounds hanging around my middle! Good grief!  However, a new year is about to begin. Each year this time I start thinking about what may lie ahead. Not that I worry about it. I just try to look at all the good things that I know are coming and imagine how they might change my life. I once heard a talk by a well-known author and she said something that stuck in my head. “On the clearest, calmest day on the ocean you can only see roughly three miles.” The span depends on how tall you are and the three miles is for a six-foot person.

Smoking hot excerpt from Beautiful Mess

From Kasey Lane :  I hope you and your loved ones are having a happy holiday, filled with love and family. I'm going to keep my post short and share with you an exclusive excerpt from my upcoming March release, Beautiful Mess . I finished up this book during a very trying time in my life. Because of that I seem to have an odd attachment to these characters. I hope you like Jax and Jami. If you're interested in their whole story, you can pre-order the book on Amazon (or just about anywhere). My debut (the first in this series), Beautiful Crazy ( on sale for $1.88 ), is out now. For more information on my books or me, please visit my website at . Hell’s bells. Jackson Paige was, in fact, Jax Pain, the drummer of Manix Curse. That thing in her chest tightened around her ribs, making it hard to breathe.
