You Promised Me Forever - Let's Keep the Magic Going

August 10, 2016

I'm pleased as can be to introduce my talented friend and author extraordinaire Lizabeth Scott to my blog, as she competes for a treasured slot on the Amazon Kindle Scout Program. I'm going to let her do the talking, because she knows WAY much more than I. 

We can learn from her, as well as applaud her efforts. So take it away, Lizabeth!

You Promised Me Forever – Lizabeth Scott up for Kindle Scout Program

ANNOUNCING You Promised Me Forever, a new novel by the author of the Royal Vow and Hearts of Gold series, Lizabeth Scott. Liz’s new novel is up for nominations into the Amazon Kindle Scout program. 

What’s the Amazon Scout program? It’s a reader driven publishing process that lets the readers tell Kindle Press the books THEY want to read. If, after an approximate 45-day vetting process that includes reader nominations, the book is selected to receive a publishing contract, anyone who nominated the book receives a free Kindle copy a week before the books release.
DESCRIPTION: As a young child, Nicole didn’t understand why her parents left. She awaited their return until she grew old enough to understand they never would. 
William, the boy next door, made her feel safe and loved and later hurt her in the worst possible way. 

Broken and questioning everything, Nicole moves to Alaska to heal and forget about the love she’ll never have. 
William broke Nicole’s heart right along with his own. Now he wants a second chance.

But will Nic ever love and trust him again?

The Trailer: It's mighty cool, by the way!

I asked Liz for some background into the creation of You Promised Me Forever. Keep reading for her response. Here's her response:

Ideas for stories pop into my head all the time. I can’t control it! Sometimes an idea grabs hold and just won’t let go. That’s what happened with You Promised Me Forever. When the idea first came to me, I didn’t think I was at a point where I could tell the story and do it justice. This story certainly was a departure from my books about a family of Royals or funny and endearing sisters. 

I dismissed the idea and focused on other works in progress. Over the next month these characters kept popping up. This could happen…and wouldn’t that be a great scene to write…how would they react to this happening. Then one day the perfect name popped up, Nicole Mary-Margaret Montgomery. Just like puppies…if you name it, it is yours. From that day on I had to start writing it all down. Throughout 2015 I worked on Nic and Will’s story between books of the Royal Vow Series. To date, this is the longest book I’ve written in word count and in time spent writing.

I hope Nic and Will grab a piece of your heart and just won’t let go!

Lizabeth Scott began making stories up as she played among the cows, horses, pigs and chickens of her family’s farm in Western, North Carolina. She read her first chapter book, Heidi, in elementary school and was hooked on creating alternate worlds where her imagination could run wild. Much like she did around the farm. 

Over the years Lizabeth writing dreams were replaced with dreams of being a wife and mother. Now, years later that little spark that had been sizzling just under the surface burst into flames with a little fanning from one of Lizabeth’s favorite authors, Elizabeth Lennox.

In 2014 Lizabeth Independently published her first book, Sweet Surrender which turned into a 6 book Royal Vow Series.

Sometimes You Have to Take a Stand

March 22, 2016

 Just when I thought I’d met everyone who’s interesting, a charismatic persona took a stand for an issue that makes a difference that’s dear to our hearts. 
 He’s all over social media, poses for photo shoots, is musically inclined, and I'm willing to bet he’s a fine author, too.

Since I was already an avid fan of the Sesame Street Muppets, I easily became infatuated with my new, adorable furry friend, and HAD to know more about him!

Show & Tell Time OR How I Got a New Crockpot - Recipe for Disaster

February 2, 2016
     After eight months of renovating the fixer-upper Joe and I bought last May, we’ve nearly completed the mission of having “Our Dream Home.” 
    Too bad we almost blew up the new kitchen the other night, but I’ll be getting to that.
    The air conditioning quit our second day in the new place, and cost an unplanned $4800 to replace. Leave it to spring to herald in the hottest May on record, while we literally baked in the glory of renesting.
     Demolishing the dated kitc...

What a Wonderful Year This Has Been

December 7, 2015
This has been a year filled with many triumphs and changes. As I reflect on these memories, I’d love to share some with you.

First, we welcomed my youngest daughter’s baby son into the world on April 25. Although he was a month early, he suffered no ill effects, and he’s a healthy robust, almost-eight-month-old! His personality radiates the best of both families, and we all love him to pieces! 

Career wise, I’ve recently had the honor of participating in an author’s dream-come-true.

June 30, 2015

Hey Everyone!!

As our month of positivity is coming to an end, it seems like a good time to reflect on the things we've learned and the goals we've created for ourselves.

We all need a support system that is uplifting and filled with positivity, and that is what has made this month so special. Each of us has our own methods to deal with those days when nothing seems to go right,...

Just Be A Little Kinder

June 26, 2015

“If you judge people you have no time to love them.” Mother Teresa


I saw this quote circulating twitter during the week and it really struck a chord with me. Then, having recently attended my Granddaughter’s 8th grade graduation, I was pleased to see the motivation of the graduating class was to be a little kinder – exactly what I’d like to bring into the fold today.


I’ve paid close attention to my fellow Positivity blog tour authors’...
