    I tried to write the book so anyone could read it and not be offended but still find humor and interesting things going on in the lives of a group of people all working toward the same end.

    I am writing more books. I want to write a sequal, actually have a contract for a second book, but I'm not sure I'll ever sign that one as I want to write something else, too.

    My commercial is going to air between 9am and 10 am Eastern time but I will get a copy of it sent to me via the computer and I can put the link on my page so anyone can listen to it whenever. That was really cool, for me. I've never had a commercial before. I also had to do some quick spots for the station. You know, the kind that sounds like, Hi! This is Pat Cote, Author of the Double K Ranch book and you're listening to RadioEarNetwork! There was a second little blurb like that but I can't remember it. Those will be playinger interspersed whereever they plug them in for the next year. So what I will have, as I understand it, is the interview to link to my page.

    Thanks for asking and I hope you enjoy the book. I love critiques so please let me know what you think, too. It really helps.

    Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

    Keep Sparkling my friend. emoticon emoticon Check out my new blog, Paranormal Investigations at Ghost's House!

    Thanks for the comment to my page.

    In answer to your question, It took about 4 years to write the book and another to get it published after the contract was signed, sealed, and delivered. Now I'm spending time trying to sell it. I hate sales. Tupperware is easier to sell than a book. Everyone wants it cheap and quick. I think Amazon.com is the cheapest place to get it and probably the fastest. It's a western romance/mystery novel. It's boy meets girl, discovers a warrior princess on his hands and falls in love with her. There's some mystery in it, for a little spice, and I was trying my hand out in the department. It's set in modernday Wyoming, an absolute beautiful state and tons of space. I also wrote it in hopes of people trying to figure out where I set the ranch. In the end, my publisher sort of made me divulge the secret, but it's kind of fun reading through, guessing on where and then finding out if you were right or not.

    I just got a commercial done for RadioEarNetwork.com and it's going to be played on May 31st, 2011 between 9am and 10am Eastern time. There will be two authors on the show and I have no idea if I will be first or second, but I am supossed to get a copy of the commercial sent to me and then I can give everyone a link to it and send it to whomever I want.

    I am excited to hear it for the first time, myself. Anyway, Thanks for all and Keeps Sparkling my Friend.

    I'm baaaack!

    Thanks for the info - I was trying very hard to figure out what I had done to desserve a new friend. I love my friends and I was pretty sure I had not gone on a recruiting binge but it's would be useful to discover what I had done to aquire a new friend. Thanks for the reason. I appreciate knowing I'm not losing my mind, although I am getting to that age where it is possible. emoticon

    Okay - I'm getting silly now. Sorry. Are you anywhere Joplin? That tornado swept through there the other day. Now I'm concerned about everyone in Joplin and I don't even know what state it is in. That had to be absolutely the end of it all, not just for those that died, but to be there and have to hopefully find a hiding place and not get blown away anyway. So awful! I hope you are well and safe!

    The weather this year is absolutely awful. We had a very sunny day, but extremely humid. The kind of day where you just stand there and sweat! Ugh! But compared to the rest of the country, I had a great day! Makes me feel strange because I get great weather while others suffer the lose of so much.

    Okay! Let me know if you are near or far from the Joplin Tornado Path!

    Keep Sparkling my Friend! emoticon emoticon
