Nancy Corrigan: Ten Unique Things About Small Towns
Monday, May 12th, 2014

My Royal Pride series is based in a small farming community in Pennsylvania. There are several factors that made me pick this setting for my books, but the main reason is that I love small towns. It’s much different living in one versus a city. I’ve lived in both and here are the top ten differences I’ve noticed.

In a small town…

  1. There’s often only one diner, one drugstore and one fancy restaurant. (Fancy is defined as having a menu, whether it’s a paper or a laminated one.)
  2. There are multiple bars, sometimes one on every street.
  3. When you walk into any business, people welcome you be name.
  4. Dating your best friend’s ex-girlfriend is common and acceptable. So is running into multiple exes in any given day.
  5. The best person to ask for gossip is usually the mailman.
  6. Discussions on everything from world peace to the local chili contest can be had at the local diner.
  7. You don’t have to worry about getting locked out of your house. It’s rarely locked and if for some reason it is, your neighbor has a key.
  8. People will notice a change in your routine immediately and question you about it.
  9. If you get in trouble, everyone will find out and never let you forget it.
  10. And finally…when you need help, there’s always somebody there to give it to you.

Book 3, Royal Pride

Centuries after what should have been a blessing from a goddess, Mira has gone from the chosen daughter to a woman shamed. She’s found a tentative peace among her family and the females they’ve chosen to mate. And despite the potentially fatal consequences, Mira has found the one thing she never thought she’d have—love. Josh is the only male she’s ever wanted, desired and burned for, and he’s the only man she can never hope to keep.

One glance into Mira’s exotic feline eyes and Josh is lost. She’s everything he never knew he wanted and loving her becomes a passion he can’t deny. The obstacles keeping them apart seem insurmountable, but Josh knows he’s the man Mira needs. With every passionate encounter, every stolen touch, his certainty that he and Mira belong together grows. He’ll defy every shifter decree and fight to his dying breath to convince those around them of the truth—Mira belongs to him, mind, body and soul.

    Nancy – so excited to see that the third Royal Pride story is out! I’ve read UNEXPECTED FIND & BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE. Loved your take on small towns; #8 (noticing change in routines) really cracked me up because that’s what I think about living on a cul-de-sac. We used to have neighbors on our old cul-de-sac that would call us to make sure everything was okay if they didn’t see me working at home early in the morning in our office (I used to get up around 5 am & do a bit of work at home before leaving for my office). They also busted my SIL when she was watching our house… and had her boyfriend come stay with her. LOL! Can’t wait to read Mira’s story!

    Thanks, Michelle!
    There’s so many things to love about small towns, though I admit, some of those can be annoying too. #8 is one that always make me laugh because even the seemingly “busy” neighbor notices changes, but it has its positives. It’s a good feeling knowing somebody cares, plus it cuts down on crime. LOL. As soon as a new car shows up, there’s somebody looking out the window and writing the license number down, just in case. 😉
