Building a Community

Myla Jackson When I started the UGLY STICK SALOON Series, I knew I wanted to build a whole community of characters where I could end one story and start another revisiting some of the same places and same characters. In the Ugly Stick Saloon Series, secondary characters get their stories. This gives the readers a chance to revisit some of their favorite characters like old friends.

In one of my first UGLY STICK SALOON books, SEX ED, I introduced Ed and Kendall’s story. But Lacey Lambert played a big secondary role in that story. She’s finally getting her story in BOOTS AND LACE. The reader gets to learn why Lacey acts the way she does and how Nick McBride wins her over. It’s been over a year since SEX ED came out. It’s about time Lacey got her man!

Author Bio

Myla Jackson spent twenty years in South Central Texas, ranching horses, cattle, goats, ostriches and emus. A former IT professional, retired Army and Air Force Reservist, she’s proud to be writing full-time, penning intrigues and paranormal adventures that keep her readers on the edge of their seats or laughing out loud. Now, living in northwest Arkansas, she’s given up wrangling cattle and exotic birds to wrangle her muses, a malti-poo and a yorkie. When she’s not at her computer, she’s traveling, out snow skiing, boating, or riding her four-wheeler, dreaming up new stories. Website | Blog | Facebook | Twitter

Boots And Lace

Welcome back to the Ugly Stick Saloon!

She wants no strings…but he wants it all.

After her philandering husband left her, Lacey Lambert found sanctuary, and a better class of friends, at the Ugly Stick Saloon. Where she learned that the best revenge—against her ex, and the “friends” who kicked her out of the Temptation Garden Club—is to live life to the fullest.

Now that her best friend is moving out of her apartment building, she’s feeling a little lonely. And more than ready for a little commitment-free sex with the hot new downstairs tenant.

Freshly divorced, Nick McBride isn’t looking for another failed relationship. But when the luscious brunette offers no-strings sex—with him and his brother—he can’t come up with a good reason to refuse.

After he gets over the shock that she likes it loud, long, and in front of an open window, he finds himself wanting more time with her. Maybe even on a permanent basis. But it’ll take every ounce of his cowboy charms to convince her to let him sweep her off her feet.

    It is great when secondary characters get their own story. At the same time, you get to check in with the people from the previous stories.

    I am a big fan of series. It doesn’t matter if it’s family or community that brings everyone together, I love knowing what happened next and catching up with favourite characters, while enjoying the new story.

    Hi Delilah! Thanks for inviting me to play on your blog today!

    I am a big fan of series too. I love to see the same characters over and over and for the secondary characters to come alive in their own books. I’m glad I’m not the only one or there would be no Ugly Stick Saloon series! Thanks for all the comments!

    I feel like I could walk into the saloon after a long, horrible day, order a drink, and have someone to talk to about it. No judging, just talking. Thanks for making that kind of world.

    about the only comment I could make it that it sounded so good that I zipped over to and purchased it right away and $2.66 for a book is a bargain,heck sometimes I have to pay more than that for used books at the used book store,so that was a great deal and the book looks really good. Ill send you a review when I finish it
