Please welcome...


My chapter mate and dear friend, Angi Morgan. She's also an awesome writer and her latest book will be coming out in just a few months--which gives you plenty of time to read her first two books!!!

So here's Angi...

Angi Morgan
MAMAS DON’T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE WRITERS…

Writers ain't easy to love and they're harder to know.
They'd rather stretch tales and play let’s pretend
with cowboys, Marines or just a Baron.
Their heroes are real and have their own back stories.
If she’s got a PC or ink in her hand,
she'll prob'ly write ‘till her grave.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be writers.
Don't let 'em tell stories or sit on their behinds.
Let 'em be doctors or lawyers or mimes.
Mamas don't let your babies grow up to be writers.
'Cos they'll never go out and they're never alone.
Always with plots on the brain.

Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys was written by Willie Nelson and inspired these words that loosely resemble a poem. Thanks for joining me today here at Jen’s A TIME FOR EVERYTHING.

Recently, I’ve been thinking that my entire life is writing, instead of writing entirely about life.  Every day there’s a different deadline, more writing, more goals to meet. Does it end? Not for a writer. If it ends…well, that’s not something a writer looks forward to. WE LOVE deadlines, contracts, obligations. If we don’t have one, we aren’t earning our keep.

But every once in a while, you just have to sit back and enjoy. I love taking my laptop with me to write wherever and whenever--as all writers should. But unless we stop and breathe, we’re forgetting what the basis is for all the yarns that we spin: life.

So take some Time for Everything…without the guilt. You have permission.

Coming this February to a bookstore near you...


And to keep you busy until then, these are available now.


I've read all three of these and they are fantastic.

Thanks for stopping by today, Angi!

I forgot to mention my CRYSTAL CLEAR Austrian necklace giveway. I hate to send you to another page... but I need to. You enter through Rafflecopter on my blog: http://angimorganauthor.wordpress.com/

AND my question today:
During this busy time of the year, what are you going to do to enjoy a bit of life?

I spent a lot of time traveling in the job. Writing while waiting for flights, hotel rooms, made it tolerable. Get so wrapped up in it at times, I'd almost miss the call to board.

Angi Morgan said...

Hey DT !!
I hear ya'. Especially with earphones. I'm always paranoid I'll miss my flight. LOL But having writing for my full-time job, sometimes I can be at the keyboard (either writing or promoting) for 12 or 14 hours. Not healthy for me, and then when I think of the pay per hour... HA HA, I wonder if I should have chosen a different profession. Honest answer: there isn't another profession that allows the voices to have a life. :-)

Keep on writing!
~Angi

Great covers!

Angi Morgan said...

Thanks Regina.
I love the men on my covers. Oh wait, there's other stuff too.
~Angi

Regina Richards said...

Besides men? Oh, right, there is other stuff too. Now that you point it out I notice.

Brenda Rumsey said...

I love reading your books Angi. Your writing is full of intrigue, real to life characters, and that push-pull romance that makes for a great story.

Angi Morgan said...

THANK YOU, Brenda !

I hope you enjoy Dangerous Memories. It was interesting to write that one. I got surprised several times along the journey and that's always good!

Levi and Jo were meant for each other (but like a man, Levi takes his time about it!).

LOL Regina !!
