Chicken Dinner: Santa, Scoundrels, and Stockdogs

Coffee Time Romance Reviewers
Award for Much Ado About Marshals
Whether I made the naught or nice list, I don't know, but Santa did bring a rather nice gift this week. What's that? Much Ado About Marshals won the Coffee Time Romance Reviewers Award thanks to Cherokee for her marvelous 5-cup review! (I ♥ you, Cherokee!) Here's part of what she said:
Much Ado About Marshals is a hoot. I loved the endearing characters and the way they connect well in the story. Everything fits together wonderfully allowing the audience to bond with the characters. I could really sense the sensations, as well as visualize all the events surrounding them. There were times I could almost taste the food that was being prepared. Jacquie Rogers creates a witty, delightful, and downright amusing book with impressive charming players. I love the chemistry of Daisy and Cole. With the collection of lively secondary players, this exquisite storyline is a remarkable read.
You can read the entire review on the Coffee Time Romance and More website. I would carry on more but can't think of anything else to say, so now we return to our regular Chicken Dinner scheduling...

Goodreads Giveaway!
Speaking of which, if you'd like a free autographed copy, head on over to Goodreads where we're giving away three print copies of Much Ado About Marshals. Hurry, because today is the last day!

Here's a book you'll want to put on your Christmas list: ALIAS SOAPY SMITH: The Life and Death of a Scoundrel: The Biography of Jefferson Randolph Smith II, written by Soapy's great-grandson, Jeff Smith. This book is chock full of everything you didn't know about the Old West. I'm hoping Santa brings one to me, but Jeff tells me it won't fit in my sock--the book is over 600 pages long and filled with authentic pictures.

What do you know about cow dogs? If your story involves cattle, then you'll need a couple good herding dogs. Don't know anything about dogs and cattle? Not a problem--go to, and if that isn't enough information for you, Jeanne Joy Hartnagle-Taylor and Ty Taylor wrote a book titled Stockdog Savvy. Learn all about cattle, their habits, their social pecking order, and how dogs work with them so effectively.
