PASSION’S RACE – ABOUT:
The heart of change is the change of heart.Life is about never-ending choices. Yet some people never have the courage to choose change.CJ Fallon has struggled with a family that she’s never quite fit into and a negative body image poisoned by her toxic, emotionally-distant mother. CJ’s mom finds fault with every choice CJ has made in her 27 young years. From earning her degrees; to climbing the corporate ladder; to her love of competing in Ironman triathlons; it’s all been one mistake after another according to CJ’s mother.And now that CJ has won her ‘age group’ in an Ironman race as an amateur, she’s on the radar of the world’s athletic elite. Nick Madison, a former Tour-de-France star and coach of an up-and-coming Ironman team, wants her to join his outfit and become a professional. A real pro!CJ struggles with her decision but once she commits to something, there’s no turning back, even as she fights her attraction to her sexy and charismatic new coach.PASSION’S SPIRIT – ABOUT:

Life is about the risks we take and the courage we display. For Natalie Walsh, switching from orthopedics to sports medicine lands her a job with team Fear US and Fear US2 setting her on a journey toward her true destiny.

She’s a lone-wolf runner extraordinaire who’s running from her past and searching for her proper place in this world. The annual team trip to Guam allows her to put the most distance between herself and her troubles, but places her face-to-face with the one person who challenges her ability to trust.

Mike Dawson, owner of the resort where the team stays, is known as the island’s surfer-dude playboy. He’s happy to show the beautiful tourists a good time, because he’s all about the short-term. No risk. No commitment. He vows to help the buttoned-up doctor relax and learn what island life is all about.

Even with spiritual forces at work, she still believes running will keep her safe. Physically. Emotionally. And though Mike continues to fight the magnetic pull, he’s more drawn to her each day.

For these two, things are not always as they appear, but will they listen to the Universe and have the courage to change for a better tomorrow?

Book 1: Prelude to a Wedding

The free spirit: Paul Monroe 

Charming Paul Monroe has the Peter Pan thing down pat. As an antique toy appraiser, even his work involves play. Which is fine, unless your job is to keep his Chicago business running smoothly . . . and all that charm — and sexiness — is aimed at you. 

Organization and reliability are Bette Wharton’s hallmarks. She handles the toughest clients with aplomb, until Paul provides a challenge that goes way beyond the office. She has a plan and a timetable. How can she let herself fall for Mr. Live-for-the-Moment when all he offers is Love-for-the-Moment?

Book 2: Wedding Party

The best man: Michael Dickinson

Michael Dickinson is delighted to be best man at his friend’s wedding – but there’s one complication. Tris Donlin is a bridesmaid. He’s wanted her for longer than he cares to remember, but to her, he’s just good old Michael – college pal, confidant, best buddy … Would a few days of wedding celebration let him finally get her out of his system once and for all?

Her cousin Paul’s wedding party has Tris’s head and heart full of memories of college days with him, Michael and their friend Grady. Grady was her college crush and Michael was her buddy. Now that they’re all grown up, my how things have changed.

She’s certain she’s found the best man for her . . . if only she can convince him.

Book 3: Grady’s Wedding

The last bachelor: Grady Roberts

Grady Roberts has never been the marrying kind — and he still isn’t. But after watching his best friends walk down the aisle and start families, flipping through his little black book and ordering take-out for one suddenly seems boring …and lonely. Yet the one woman who intrigues him keeps him at arm’s length.

Leslie Craig is human. She feels the full effect of handsome, intelligent, wealthy, successful Grady’s attraction . . . and his loneliness. It’s the last element that snags her heart. She’s developed a knack for helping people with problems and sorrows without ever revealing her own. Can she do that for Grady?

Or, if he discovers the truth, will he hurt her so deeply she’ll never recover?

A young widow & Texas cowboy overcome their painful pasts. #WidowWoman #PatriciaMcLinn #amreading #western

Widow-Woman600TODAY’S REVOLVING BOOK IS THE western (historical) romance WIDOW WOMAN by USA Today bestselling author PATRICIA McLINN.

Two yards into the pond, a man crouched so the water hit him just below the armpits. His face was to her, but his body was sideways, narrowing the target. His extended arm paralleled the water, along with the revolver aimed straight at her.

That didn’t concern her much, since she had a rifle aimed at him.

1880s Wyoming territory:

Nick Dusaq’s painful past has kept him apart from people, until the day he signs on at the widow Terhune’s Wyoming Territory ranch. But Rachel Terhune is like no widow woman the Texas cowboy has encountered before.

Rachel’s every thought is devoted to her ranch and the people who work it, until the day she sees Nick Dusaq rising naked from the creek like some ancient river god. Now the passion that flames between them threatens to destroy them both.

ABOUT THE BOOKS IN THIS BOXED SET:

Wyoming Wildflowers Trilogy

Book 1 — Almost a Bride (Indian Paintbrush)

Book 2 — Match Made in Wyoming (Fireweed)

Book 3 — My Heart Remembers (Bur Marigold)

“The characters in this series were clamoring away in my head for their stories, but I hadn’t yet found the thread to tie them together. When I picked up a linen dishtowel I’d brought back from a research trip to Wyoming — there they were: Wyoming Wildflowers.” ~PATRICIA McLINN

ABOUT THE STORIES:

Wildflowers have to be strong and resilient to bloom amid the rugged beauty of Wyoming – and so do the women.

51Xp9y8+o0L._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_ALMOST A BRIDE

Dave Currick was everything Matty Brennan wanted for as along as she could remember. Right up until he broke her heart six years ago. Now that she’s returned to Wyoming for good, what she wants more than anything is to save her family’s ranch. Even if that means swallowing her pride and asking Dave to marry her.

Matty’s up to something – Dave knows that much. Just as he knows that Matty needs help, so of course he’ll provide it. Doing what’s best for Matty is second nature. Even when it comes to marrying her in name only. Although he can’t resist one hot-blooded kiss after the I-dos — a kiss as fiery as the flame-red Indian Paintbrush that’s always reminded him of Matty.

Maybe – just maybe – his Matty will become more to him than Almost a Bride.

614XI9hSQBL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_MATCH MADE IN WYOMING

When fire ravages Wyoming land, fireweed is among the first plants to return, brightening the blighted area with the joy of its blooms. Can Taylor Anne Larsen pull off a similar miracle for the pain-ravaged heart and disbelieving soul of ranch foreman Cal Ruskoff? Armed with the same grace and grit as the wildflower fireweed, Taylor also has allies – a matchmaking friend, the Wyoming winter, high-octane mutual attraction, and a rescued puppy who slips past Cal’s defenses.

Cal might give in to passion temporarily, but from behind the wall he’s built around his past and his secrets, he’s certain Taylor is all that he can’t let himself have. And he’ll use all his weapons to keep her out.

51++tOYxdyL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_MY HEART REMEMBERS

Lisa Currick was once as bright and open as the sunny Bur Marigold wildflower of her native Wyoming. That’s how New York City Detective Shane Garrison has remembered her since she figured in his first investigation eight years ago. But when he arrives in her hometown determined to resolve the final element of that case, he discovers the girl he’s remembered has become a very different woman.

Don’t miss any of the titles in this heartwarming collection of contemporary western romances with plenty of humor!

THE STORY:
The heart of change is the change of heart.

Life is about never-ending choices. Yet some people never have the courage to choose change.

CJ Fallon has struggled with a family that she’s never quite fit into and a negative body image poisoned by her toxic, emotionally-distant mother. CJ’s mom finds fault with every choice CJ has made in her 27 young years. From earning her degrees; to climbing the corporate ladder; to her love of competing in Ironman triathlons; it’s all been one mistake after another according to CJ’s mother.

And now that CJ has won her ‘age group’ in an Ironman race as an amateur, she’s on the radar of the world’s athletic elite. Nick Madison, a former Tour-de-France star and coach of an up-and-coming Ironman team, wants her to join his outfit and become a professional. A real pro!

CJ struggles with her decision but once she commits to something, there’s no turning back.

After all, life is about making choices.

Even if it means leaving a stable career.

Even if it means leaving friends and moving half-way around the world.

Even if it means living with her mother’s rejection.

Even if it means losing her heart.

Even if it means risking her very life.

THE STORY:

Life is about the risks we take and the courage we display. For Natalie Walsh, switching from orthopedics to sports medicine lands her a job with team Fear US and Fear US2 setting her on a journey toward her true destiny.

She’s a lone-wolf runner extraordinaire who’s running from her past and searching for her proper place in this world. The annual team trip to Guam allows her to put the most distance between herself and her troubles, but places her face-to-face with the one person who challenges her ability to trust.

Mike Dawson, owner of the resort where the team stays, is known as the island’s surfer-dude playboy. He’s happy to show the beautiful tourists a good time, because he’s all about the short-term. No risk. No commitment. He vows to help the buttoned-up doctor relax and learn what island life is all about.

Even with spiritual forces at work, she still believes running will keep her safe. Physically. Emotionally. And though Mike continues to fight the magnetic pull, he’s more drawn to her each day.

For these two, things are not always as they appear, but will they listen to the Universe and have the courage to change for a better tomorrow?

“It wasn’t an accidental death?”

Mike’s head whipped around to me at that question. He needed to work on his poker face.  

A Rodeo Producer, Dead in the Bull Pen. Accident or Murder?

Elizabeth, until recently a top-flight TV journalist on the national stage, has been making strides in getting her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But that equilibrium faces a major challenge.

The apparently accidental death—under the hooves of rodeo bulls— of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Michael Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region’s biggest event, but it’s being outrageously mishandled by the station’s egocentric anchor.

As Elizabeth and Michael start to dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on the rodeo and suspects—and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has loyalties to some suspects as well as to the rodeo, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom have indicated an interest in her . . . they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of that triangle are starting to get under her skin.

You’re an indie author also known as a “self-published” author. Tell us how you got started down the indie road and why?

PAR: A very good friend of mine talked me into it. I had two books I had the rights back to and I hadn’t done anything with them. They sat there collecting dust. This author friend of mine bought me a cover and 5 day ad to promote it for Christmas one year. All I had to do was take a leap of faith. Four years later, I’m still self-publishing and making more money than I was with my previous publisher.

51dS6rHwvAL._SX166_SY265_51hqg7xtcUL._SX166_SY265_513KwnPJGfL._SX166_SY265_You’re a bestselling author on Amazon – which of your books hit the Amazon bestseller list, how high did they go, and how many copies did you sell? And best of all – how did you celebrate?

PAR: My first bestseller was Viper, the first book in my Sons of Sangue series. It stayed in the top ten Hot New Releases for two weeks. Its highest rank was #3 there. It stayed in Paranormal Romance releases top one-hundred for the first month. I believe the highest rank there was #11. Hawk (book 2) and Gypsy (book 3) made both those lists again, as well as the demons category. But I don’t recall their numbers. Neither got as high as Viper did, but the money brought on that first month was still pretty great for me. I don’t recall the number of books at all, without having to look it up, but quite a bit fewer than if I hit those numbers with all books. To celebrate, I did so quietly with my hubby and a couple of friends over wine. I’m not much of a big party type gal.

Tell us why you like to write in these areas? And how would you describe your voice?

PAR: I pretty much write paranormal romance now because it is what’s selling for me, paranormal with dark suspense undertones. I really have always been fascinated with police work. I have a brother who is a detective and a son that’s a deputy sheriff. I guess it runs in the family. When I was doing strictly romantic suspense, I used to ask myself what scares me, then write it. I was giving myself nightmares. Now that I don’t write as dark, the nightmares have stopped. I have just always been fascinated with the darker side of the human character. As for my voice, hmmm . . . that’s a tough one. I never really think about it. I just write and I know when I’m in that zone because it feels right.

415DzaZE-zL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Let’s say I’m new to Patricia A. Rasey – I’ve just discovered you either through facebook or amazon or through a friend. What kind of story am I going to be getting in a Patricia A. Rasey book?

PAR: I have always said I hate describing my work. The one question I fear is: tell me about your book. I want to turn it over and say read the blurb. I just suck at talking about them. You will definitely get a book that’s a bit darker in nature. There won’t be a lot of comedy elements (unless you pick up my ghost novella. Spirit Me Away was my one attempt and it was a lot of fun to write). You will also get more than a romance. I try to weave a suspense into everything I write. A lot of readers say I’m full of twists and turns and you don’t always see things coming.

What are three pros to being an indie author?

PAR: Having the independence to decide things like cover, editor. Getting the money monthly and like clockwork. Most of these vendors pay promptly. And having complete control of your career.

Author Patricia A. Rasey is building her own successful publishing career.

Author Patricia A. Rasey is building her own successful publishing career.

What are three cons to being an indie author?

PAR: The money you have to front in order to publish a book. It can be expensive. Being in charge of all your marketing and still sometimes the negative backlash for not having a publisher. And having complete control over your career. If you fail, it’s your fault.

Promotion is key to every author. But you can’t always predict how well a promotion is going to work out. Tell us about one promotion that you did – for a new release or at a conference that really surprised you.

PAR: I’ve done a lot of promotions. Facebook works the best for me. Next step will hopefully be BookBub if I can snag one of their ads. I would say so far, it was getting one of those 6 foot tall banners and having it placed in a well-seen spot. My book sales at that conference were great.

Being an indie author may not be for everyone – although there are plenty of authors who are doing it and plenty of traditionally published authors who are incorporating it into their careers as well. But what does it take to be a truly committed and successful self-published author?

c1e4e5_edf94ad1148f4e8fa5f93657ef458c3f.jpg_srz_p_174_265_75_22_0.50_1.20_0PAR: Dedication and time. If you don’t do the legwork, no one will do it for you. You have to work your ass off in this business to get ahead. No one said self-publishing was easy. And it’s not. Just know if you go that route, it’s hard work and you may not always make your money back. But the bright side, they are on sale forever—so market the backlist to get them selling. That’s my next step.

Building a readership or audience is important for any author – but indie authors don’t have publishers to help them shoulder some of the promotional challenges. As an indie author – how do you connect with readers?

PAR: Engage, engage, engage. Always take time out on social medias to talk to your readers and always respond to their emails. If they reach out, reach back. It’s rewarding both ways.

Tell us about your latest release. And what do you have coming down the road?

PAR: Gypsy (book 3) was my last release. If I didn’t have a day job, they would come faster. He was my challenge as he was very much a party boy stuck with a mate he did not want. Let’s say he was one angry vampire who became an ass. Rogue (book 4) comes out Feb. 2, 2016, with two novellas planned next year following its release. Draven (book 4.25) and Preacher (book 4:75). Normally authors do a 4.5 for their novellas. It just so happened that I planned two before book 5 comes out: Xander.

PAR: I love strong alphas, guys who need a little taming. I would say I’ve always been attracted to them, even well before my writing career. I had a lot of male friends who rode motorcycles. My mom and dad’s best friends owned the Harley Davidson shop in our town. Now, I still love the hot, sexy manly type over the traditionally handsome men.

BONUS QUESTION: When you’re really stressed out – how do you blow off steam?

PAR: I read with a glass of wine or an ice cold beer. Reading is still my favorite way to slip away from reality for a bit.

Thanks Patricia for joining us today.

Thank you for interviewing me. I appreciate you taking the time.
