An Artist’s Point-of-View

New Hampshire mountains

I need to stretch this blog’s description, so bear with me. Yes, this is a blog about all the supernatural-based books we four authors are known for, but I recently tried my hand at contemporary romance, with action and adventure mixed in. The latest book, released November 3rd, is

 

What? No supernatural, paranormal, or hocus-pocus? Nope.

However, this story has the supernatural of nature, with waterfalls, a rushing river, and a devastating storm. The beauty of nature is shared as well.

An artist bored with the city life and a Manhattan lawyer itching to escape his father’s control wind up in a New Hampshire campground. A coincidence? Not likely!

Artist Prize Package

Hurricanes? Go AWAY!

My recent annual road trip took me from Raleigh, North Carolina to the Poconos of Pennsylvania, through the Delaware Water Gap, and finally to New Hampshire. This part of our 1,890 mile 9 day trip was pretty uneventful. We volunteered at the NH Highland Games surrounded by kilts. Yum!

The trip home was a bit different. We stopped in Bridgeport, Connecticut for the night, then boarded the 9 a.m. ferry that took us to Port Jefferson, on Long Island. We saved about 100 miles of driving near New York City. However, the black clouds of Hurricane

Jose followed us. You could see them off the eastern tip of Long Island, making the ferry ride across the Long Island Sound choppy.

Visiting family, the deluge reached us, but dissipated long enough for me to take photos of the home in Huntington I grew up in, and the cemetery where my maternal grandmother is buried.

 

While having lunch, the rain reappeared, then we outran it by driving through Brooklyn, Staten Island, and into New Jersey. I feel for the people hit hard by Harvey, Jose, and Maria.

I hope these photos bring smiles to your faces…

Are you working on LABOR DAY?

labor-day-1628502_1280

The Labor Day holiday has different meanings to different folks. In many towns in the United States, children are already back to school. Many workers have the Monday holiday off from work, and many are also ‘paid’ holiday pay.

What about me? I retired from my state job as a 9-1-1 dispatcher to write fulltime. No more weekly paychecks; no more paid health insurance or vacation days. If I do not work on Labor Day, nothing changes. However, I try not to shop at businesses that make their people work. It’s my choice, because people should have a chance to enjoy family and friends as we say good-bye to summer.

I am a writer, and since I released a new book on September 1st, my weekend is filled with promoting its release as I do my best to get the word out. My latest book, With Every Heartbeat, is a contemporary romance, but I have also put my Scottish Fantasy Romance novella, Shimmer: The Beginning, on sale for $.99 for a limited time. You can find all my book Buy Links on Nancy’s Books Page.

Summer is Here. What are you Reading?

Me and the Hogwarts Express

Will you vegetate at the beach or around the pool? Or, does work go on? I am a writer and writers can work anywhere and at anytime, and I plan to keep writing even as we celebrate the July 4th US holiday, the day of our country’s independence in 1776. Hubby and I will host a few family members around the grill. Chicken and watermelon! Yum!

I recently returned from a summer vacation where I met up with my editor Kathleen Rothenberger, then spent two awesome days at Universal Studios. I did manage to read in the evenings while resting my tired legs from walking miles through Daigon Alley and Hogsmead. I post all my read books on Goodreads, but you can see what I am currently reading on my 

blog. (A Goodreads widget posts them on the left side of the page).

While I have your attention, I am releasing my novella Shimmer: The Beginning on July 13th. It is a 100 page prequel to my Clan of Dragons series.

Sign up for my newsletter for sneak peeks, exclusive giveaways, and to stay updated on my new releases. Very soon I will be giving away print copies of Shimmer: The Beginning ONLY to a lucky few of my newsletter recipients.

Clan of Dragons series by Nancy Lee Badger
Just Within a Highland Mist

Recent Release: Just Within a Highland Mist by Dawn Marie Hamilton

Just Within a Highland Mist

The 5th tale in the Highland Gardens series.

 
Fae pixies are meddling with Gregor’s heart…

Gregor MacLachlan returns to Castle Lachlan, where he fostered as a green lad, ignoring rumors of fae activity. As a warrior with his cousin’s elite private guard, he hopes to prove to the clan he’s matured and has worth. A trio of pesky pixies have other plans for his heart. While hunting, a wayward shot from his bow nearly hits a strange lass who appears as if by magic.

Emily Smith follows one of the young boys in her care onto a forbidden mound in the woods behind the local garden center’s display garden and wakes in a strange bed, in a place and time not her own. Can she rise above the heartache caused by the untimely death of her fiancé and find love in the arms of the dark-eyed stranger who becomes her champion?

 

Emily gazed at her new husband with awe. It didn’t matter they were strangers. She sensed there was something special between them, perhaps magical, something that bound them together even though they were from different places. Different times.

She studied his full lips, anticipating the feel of them against her mouth. She moistened her lips, wanting him more than she would have imagined possible only a few days prior.

His pupils dilated, and he sucked in a ragged breath. He lifted a loose tendril of her hair and tucked it behind an ear. His calloused fingers brushed along the sensitive skin at the nape of her neck.

 Fire and ice. She shivered. A delicious chill tingled over her shoulder blades. Why was he making her wait?

 

Available at Amazon and B&N.

Fangs, Talons, and Scales!

No, it isn’t Halloween, also known as All Hallow’s Eve, or Samhain, but there be dragons!

I write paranormal romance and my latest series, Clan of Dragons, is filled with dragons. When dealing with mythological creatures instead of actual wildlife, the writer has a certain freedom over other writers, which is why my dragons live in Scotland’s Black Cuillin Hills on the Isle of Skye.

Dragons have certain traits such as scales, talons, wings, fangs, spiked tails, etc. However, as a writer I can make my dragon purple with copper-colored wings, as I did in SPARK, the first book in my new series. Or, I can make my current hero a green dragon with snow-white wings as I did in SMOKE, the 2nd book which I just released! I can make my dragons speak, shift into humans, and fall in love.

This freedom-to twist and turn creatures in order to enhance my story-is why I love to write about dragons.  If you love dragons, Scotland, men in wool plaides, and romance, check out my newest series, Clan of Dragons.
