Welcoming 2017! (@KaceyHammell) #Writing #Author #ComingSoon

 

Good morning all! And hello to 2017!! I, for one, am glad to say goodbye to 2016. It was a difficult year — personally, professionally, for the world and everywhere in between. But going into the new year, I’m filled with some optimism and hope. My hubby says “it can’t get worse”. I beg to differ but that’s too gloom and doom. I don’t want to focus on all that negativity.

We ended Christmas day with a death in my family but from that sadness I (and my mom, whose father passed), we came away with one another and a strong connection of mother/daughter and how much her father meant to her. He was a man she had differences with but in the end had a great bond she can cherish. So the hope and love we always find solace in is stronger than ever and reminds me that family and love will always wrap their arms around us and keep us together. It reminded me about how romantic my grandparents were as well. They would have been married over 60 years and that number of years for a couple is quite unheard of these days. My hubby and I are approaching 16 years and we’ve never been happier together, despite the bumps in the road.

Writing romance, for me, is inspired by those previous generations (we are a family with no divorces), and how a simple song will prompt a dance around the kitchen (or a way to say goodbye at a funeral), a light touch down the arm rejuvenates that connection and heat between that couple. And thanks to my hubby, every day a simple kiss on the forehead a few times a day, has me closing my eyes and loving him completely, with his love wrapping around me like a blanket.

I hope all of you have those kinds of moments with the person they love this year and beyond.

And quickly, just FYI since I touched upon writing, I have a new release coming out next week — January 11th!

Happy Holidays!! (@KaceyHammell) #Writing #Author

Good morning everyone! Happy Holidays!

The days are flying by faster and faster, aren’t they? It feels like we just celebrated Christmas last year. Summer flew by in the blink of an eye. We had a long hot drought through this summer and I was glad to see it end. But now there’s white stuff covering everything. Looks pretty but makes for some treacherous road conditions.

Kids start their Christmas holidays here at the end of the day tomorrow. My boys have never been happier to see the holidays arrive. School isn’t what it used to be, they are finding the teachers sarcastic and grumpy, and butting into their personal lives. I could go on for hours about a conversation I had with the principal last week, but I’ll spare you those details.

I just celebrated my 42nd birthday last week. It was phenomenal. I’m not one who cares about birthdays much or getting older, but it was lovely to have the kids and hubby spoil me rotten a bit extra. I never turn down presents or extra hugs and kisses! LOL

Book wise, I’m writing 2 stories at the moment. Back and forth and both are going well, but not fast enough – for my liking. I’ve been trying to take it one day at a time, write 2-3  one hour sprints during the day to keep myself moving and get other things accomplished as well but it’s not always as many words as I hope for at the end of every day.

I also received edits from my publisher for my next release, “Payback’s a Bitch” (formerly pubbed Prank Me), which will be out in the new year. It is such a fun story. I loved writing it, and the opportunity to add to it for re-release. I love revisiting old characters.

So watch for that book next year, as well as “Guarding His Anchor” (Canadian Muscle #2, sequel to Guarding Midnight). And of course more as each story is completed. I can’t wait to share new books with you.

Until next year, have a wonderful and safe holiday! May all your loved ones surround you with love and laughter throughout the holidays, and may all your prayers be answered.

Quick Catch Up with Kacey (@KaceyHammell)

Good morning everyone! I hope December is already being kind to you. My little area of Ontario, Canada, has had the oddest weather imaginable. From snow to rain, mild to freezing temps, it’s an up and down, merry g0-round kind of crazy. Mother Nature doesn’t seem to want to make up her mind. Can’t say I mind though. The lack of snow is nice, makes for better driving.

It’s been a busy few months for me. I completed 3 stories in the last six months. Two brand new and one re-issue that’s had extensive revisions. It has been amazing to feel that I’ve made progress with my writing after an uphill battle. And I’m pleased to say that Evernight Publishing will be releasing ALL 3 books!! In fact, the first one — COVER ME — releases December 13th!! I’m over the moon and have already jumped in to writing another story. Feels awesome.

Here’s the blurb for COVER ME —
Contemporary, May/December, Erotic Romance

Wanting her son’s best friend shouldn’t feel so right …

Jay Savage is one of the most sought-after models in the business who seems to have it all. He’s the face of romance novel covers from coast to coast and has expanded his brand to an executive role. Despite the endless possibilities in his life, Jay doesn’t have is the one woman he wants most. Leanne is everything he needs, and everything he can’t have. Their age difference isn’t the only obstacle standing in the way of convincing her they were made for one another: Leanne is also his best friend’s mom.

On a visit to Nita Lake to celebrate the marriage of her son, Leanne Hogan is faced with the most delicious temptation she’s ever encountered. The smoldering heat she and Jay share burns down her defenses, and Leanne finds herself giving in to the only man who tempts her banked desires. They shouldn’t work. They can’t work. So why does it feel so right when she’s in his arms?

And another highlight for me was just a few weeks ago. Some wonderful friends took me to Toronto for a girl’s night and we had a blast. We were VIPs at a nightclub where … and it’s still surreal … Shemar Moore would be! He was in town promoting his Indie film, The Bounce Back, and had the event “A Night with Shemar Moore”. It was bloody fantastic!! The man is everything he portrays himself to be with the sweetest smile, strongest arms and splendid dance moves. I couldn’t believe it the moment he walked through the door, to the wonderful hugs, and his sweetness. One of the best nights of my life!

Right now is the season of family, love and laughter. It’s craziness around here as I prepare for the holidays and try to stay ahead of things in order to take a few days off. It’s not happening as well as I’d like but I’m working hard at it. 🙂

Til next time,
