The Final Countdown — and a Big Fish (Contest)
Friday, July 7th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Siobhan Dilks!

Thank you, thank you, Powers That Be. I’m almost there. Well, I got to The End last night. Today, I sweep through my book, and hopefully, catch any last typos my beta readers (Thank you Fedora, Laura, and Reina!) didn’t find or I added when I revised.

I love the last line, and I hope it works. I think I’ll share it here. It probably won’t make any sense, but that’s because YOU HAVE TO READ THE BOOK for it to mean anything.

They fell asleep like that. Connected. Dreaming of big fish and the life they’d share.

Big fish? Yeah. Made me smile anyway. I always wonder if anyone else will laugh, chuckle, or at least grin when they read something in my stories.

I don’t try to write a funny scene, but then characters start “talking” in my head, and my fingers fly to try to keep up because they’re going so fast. Sometimes, I don’t even know what I’m writing until it flows off my fingers. I know. It’s the writer’s schizophrenia. It’s an actual thing. Swear.

Anyways, I hope you’ve pre-ordered your copy of Jackson. If you haven’t, you could always pick up a story inside either of my two series, Montana Bounty Hunters and Montana Bounty Hunters: We Are Dead Horse, MT, and start there.

I don’t know how many more bounty hunters my Dead Horse office of the Montana Bounty Hunters can hire, but I’ll try to come up with something plausible so they can all stay happily ever after there. I’d hate to leave Nadine behind. Although, I do think there needs to be a southern bounty hunters story somewhere…

For a chance to win a FREE download of one of my bounty hunter stories, imagine what a Big Fish might have to do with a romance story. Share your wildest idea. Doesn’t have to be good to win!

    Man fishing and pulls out a large fish, hitting a lady as she walks by the river bank.

    Well the big fish could be a contest between a female fisherman and a pro fisherman on who can catch the biggest fish. During the competition they fall in lust then love and they both catch the big fish cause they catch each other.

    Man out fishing from the docks. He hooks a big fish and needs help pulling it in. She is walking by and decides to help. She slips and ends up in the water. He manages to get the fish and help her out. He takes her back to his place to take care of her and cook the fish up for dinner. They then get to know each other in front of a fireplace with a bottle of wine.

    Maybe one of them is a taxidermist and that’s how they meet.

    Being pulled into the water by a big fish… then trying to save the fishing pole you borrowed.

    The couple dreams of big fish because they live on a houseboat during part of the year. They have a fishing contest each week to see who gets the biggest catch . In face, a fishing contest is how they met in the first place. They have the fish they both hooked that day hanging up in their house!

    Congratulations on making your deadline.
    Love the part you wrote about the characters talking in your head… I find it happens to me too.
    Good luck with the release on Tuesday. Looking forward to reading it
