Johnnie showed his love for Tess, the Motorcycle Woman, by building her a beautiful musical jewelry box. One of the features on the box was an inlay built into the lid. It was a basket with more than one flower coming out of the basket. Needless to say, she liked the jewelry box very much, so much so that it brought tears to her eyes. Should she still leave for the open road as she planned? Now that she's sure Johnnie is deeply in love with her, she will be breaking his heart by leaving. As she leaves early one morning without him knowing it, she sheds tears and realizes she is in love with Johnnie too.

Good luck. Larry

Works in Progress

I have three works in progress. Two have not been submitted yet and the other is being considered by Wild Rose. That one is entitled Photo Beauty and I'm expecting to hear from it any day. It is in the Sweetheart Rose line. The editor said she'd let me know this month of September.

I have two I'm still revising, one called Triangle and one called Runner's High. I'll not detail the contents but if anybody checks my blog here and is interested and comments I'll let you know. I will also post the Motorcycle Woman cover here again and hope nobody forgets it. Tomorrow night I'll be posting the Scavenger Hunt hint for our Sweetest Romance Authors chat which will be from 8-9 PM tomorrow night, Thursday, Sept. 24.

New story released today at Red Rose

My new story, Motorcycle Woman, is being released today at Red Rose Publishing. I'm excited about that as this story has had its ups and downs but thankfully ending on an up. Thanks to Val for reviewing this story before it hit the charts.

It is about Tess McBride who breaks free from a motorcycle gang, being tired of the men and their sordid agendas toward her. She only joined because she loved to work on motorcycles. Free of them she resolved to avoid men, mainly because of her father running off with another woman and her mother dying a year later. Her resolve is undermined when she meets stranded biker, Johnnie Parker. He's different from the other men she met. Is he for real? Deep down she hopes so but she won't admit that. She repairs his motorcycle and reluctantly lets him tag along on her road journey. She ends up in Johnnie's hometown, gets a mechanic's job and is determined to hit the road again after she replenlishes her traveling bankroll. But what about Johnnie? He's fallen in love with her. Should she leave for the open road again? The answer is obvious when she comes to realize how special he's treated her and that she has fallen in love with him too.
Thanks and all comments welcome.

New Story awaiting release date.

My new story via Vintage Rose with The Wild Rose Press now has a cover. The story is entitled Taking Advantage and is about Zack and Gloria, seniors in high school in 1949. Can Zack overcome his own feeling of inadequacy, Gloria's strict mother and the three sports heros Gloria is dating, to win Gloria's hand? His sister, Molly, encourages him to wade into the midst of all the jocks Gloria is dating and go up against Gloria's mother to land a date with Gloria. No release date yet and it will probably be down the road a ways.
