Handmade Jack O’Lantern

Good day, friends…

Welcome to Leisure Lane…Thank you for strolling by today and visiting.

Halloween is just around the corner, and I made myself a note to enjoy a few decorations for the occasion.  I like to take out my homemade Jack O’ Lantern, who always greets me with his funny smile leading up to the big day.  He was so easy to make – scrap cottons, black felt, buttons, a twig, polyester stuffing, and a bit of green floral wiring to top it off.  Do you have a special or favorite handmade Halloween item you like to put out every year?  I’d love to hear about it.

May you have a fun and blessed weekend, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

River Runs Deep Book Launch

Good day, and I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a delightful autumn.  I am very excited to announce that my new novella, River Runs Deep is now available on Amazon Kindle!  If you like Hallmark style love stories, you are going to love this.

Added note 10/18/2017:  I forgot to mention that there are two recipes from the story at the end of the book – Elsie’s Rose Water Scones and Catherine’s Peppermint Water.  A little something extra for you to enjoy!

Though it’s a fiction, the foundation of the story is based on an experience I had many, many years ago.  One that I will cherish forever.  I promised to tell you how I came to write this book, so here is the story.

A few days before Mother’s day 2016, I had a dream of an Native American chief.  The dream is mentioned in the book, so I won’t go into detail here.  When I asked him who he was he said, “I am Faith.”  That Mother’s Day, I was working at the store, and stopped by to visit my sweet friend, who worked in another department there before going home.  I wasn’t thinking about the dream, but we were talking and having fun and something reminded me of the sweet encounter I had when I was 20 years old. I hadn’t related the story to anyone in decades, but I told her about it, and without hesitation, she excited announced, “Oh, my gosh, that’s so romantic – that’s your next Hallmark romance story!!”  And a little over a year later, here it is.

Well, I hope you enjoyed that little behind the scenes story.  I gave you the Reader’s Digest version 😉   Be of good cheer, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

River Runs Deep Update

Good day, friends…

Welcome to Leisure Lane.  I hope everyone is enjoying the last remains of summer, and gearing up for cooler temperatures.  Here in Texas, that’s all we think about – the hope of cooler temperatures.

I’d like to give you all the last update for my newest novella, River Runs Deep.  The next time I post about it, will be to announce it’s availability on Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook.  I’m working on Chapter 11, which may be the last chapter, nearing the story’s end.  It’s been a remarkable journey working with the characters, falling in love with them, and feeling their journey toward one another.

As promised, on the book’s release, I will give you the short back story of how this book came to fruition, and I’ll share the gift I gave the sweet muse, who was instrumental in encouraging me to write it.  If you missed the book description, you can view it here

Thank you for strolling by the Lane.  May your day be filled with blessings, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!

River Runs Deep Update

Good day, Everyone…Welcome to Leisure Lane!

I hope you’re all having a good day.  The weather here has been hot then cool, then hot…well, you get the idea.  I am enjoying the cool days and exceptionally grateful for every one of them.

I promised to keep you posted on the progress of my newest novella,  River Runs Deep.  I have recently finished chapter 7 and the cover.  For something that was going to be a simple romance, I seem to be getting all caught up with it, finding myself wanting to talk about the characters and story-line.  But my friends, both young and…not as young ;)…are more anxious to read it and don’t want to know the details.  So, I guess that’s another incentive to keep writing and finish it.

Once the book is finished and ready for publishing, I’ll tell you what led me to write it.

Be blessed today, my friends, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound.

Marianne
