I know I already did today's post but since I really did it yesterday and set it post today, in real time, today is today's post. It will be a short one though.
Today's topic - Linkage. Make sure you follow them or I may have to face you at High Noon.
Already other bloggers have joined in the fun at The Great Western Drive. Emily at Dreaming on the Job has listed her favourite Movies, Actors, Authors, Romances and Television Series. Do drop in and add to the fun!!
Erotic Romance Author Victoria Jenssen has also joined in the fun and listed her favourite song, novel, television, romance, erotic romance, movie and cowboy and horse (she names Roy Rogers and Trigger but I think The Lone Ranger and Silver could give them a run for their money). She's asking for yours, so let her know!!
Dear Author has also joined the Round-Up with a couple of posts! First where they pimp The Great Western Drive and then a review of a book I'm looking forward to. Never one to say in 10 words what can be said in 100, I had to add my 2¢ worth
When I heard some months ago now that Jo Goodman’s next book was going to be a Western, I was so tempted to dance naked in the moonlight!! In fact, the fact this one is being released soon is the motivating factor in The Great Western Drive this week.
I’ve loved Westerns for a very long time now and feel that they are currently under-represented so the whole idea of the week long celebration of the Western was to get readers to try one – at least one. And with Never Love a Lawman coming out soon, what better time?
I’ve loved Jo Goodman for years now and it’s wonderful to see her finally starting to get the recognition she has deserved for so long.
A Jo Goodman book + A Western = something I’m looking forward to more than many can imagine!!
I urge everyone who is interested in trying a Western before this one comes out or after or during, to stop by and see what they are all about. As many who may know me, when I get on a mission I lose all pride and have no shame *g*
I only quickly skimmed your review as I hope to read this one myself asap – and when I do, I’ll come back and revel in it. In the meantime, I feel like dancing nude in the moonlight that you enjoyed it so much. The only thing stopping me is the fact that it’s not a full moon tonight prevents me from doing just that!
And here's a site I found while surfing the net looking for all things Western - Love Western Romances . com. They have a survey!! I LOVE doing surveys.
Wendy, our own SuperLibrarian, has her next post up where she gives more choices. And! She has a contest - the prize? A copy of A Reason To Live by Maureen McKade. I've read this book and loved it!! It got top marks from me. So Go and visit Wendy and comment to enter. This is truly a book worth reading.
Sybil, the third of us cowgirls has a wonderful interview with Cheryl St. John on Inspirational Westerns. At this point I'm offering a challenge to myself - READ ONE KRISTIE - OK - I will.
Sandy M, also of The Good, The Bad, The Unread and the ar-tiste of these great Icons (of which one can be yours - details coming) has a review of a Western I haven't heard of - until now!! Where The Wind Blows by Caroline Fyfe is a book I'll be tracking down. Damn it all but Chapters doesn't stock a lot of Dorchester books (and am I het up under the collar about that situation - have been for years - so it's in my shopping cart). And a bit of a side rant/ kudo's. I've always admired Dorchester as they have consistently been putting out Westerns. When other publishers were cutting back or eliminating them altogether (Avon - I'm talking about YOU), Dorchester has helped keep the genre going. For that you get a
But I digress.
And I've saved the most exciting link for last. Be sure to cover your ears for this but.....
As in this week hasn't proved it enough - one of my favourite authors - Cheryl St. John inteviewed ME *doin' the happy cha-cha* over at Petticoats & Pistols, a wonderful blog for Western lovers, chock full of great authors. And if you don't want to check it out for what I have to say, I had me a tough ole time looking for the eye candy of who I think is a Very Fine Western type looking hero. So go for the eye candy alone - heh heh heh heh.
And because it's The Great Western Drive and the less sleep I get, the more excited I get, I leave you with this
Oooohhh - I LIKE this link day!! Tumperkin of Isn't it Romance has joined The Great Western Drive and has a very thoughtful post on despite why she leery of Westerns, she's going to give one a try. And she has an excellent perspective on the Western hero versus the English hero. And if that isn't enough to visit - go and watch the video she's posted - it's hilarious and sure to make you laugh.
For Sybil - she knows why
Do you remember when I said just one more?? Well - it seems I lied. In honour of The Great Western Drive, Sybil came through again and has something Very, Very Special for all those Sarah McCarty fans. And I know there are a lot of them. Go Forth And Visit.
