I'm in A Deep Freeze!

In Utah, we're in a deep freeze.  Literally, it's cold -- no freezing is a better word.  You know the kind of cold when you breathe out and your breath freezes when you do? The temperature outside is 3 degrees.  Now I know many other areas are colder, but it's mighty frigid here. I have to admit though it's gorgeous outside.  The sky is blue and the prettiest color I've seen in awhile.  The sun is shining, making the snow-covered ground sparkle.  You'd think you are walking in a sea of diamonds.   The fourteen inches of snow crunches under your feet and icicles hang from the rooftops. 

Skiers are loving it.  Ice fishermen are flocking to the lakes and catching fish.  Me, I'm staying warm by the fire watching the flickering flames and writing a new story.  Want to hear a little about it?  Well, I'm going to tell you about it because I love talking about my stories.

Have you ever been rabbit hunting on an empty expanse of desert with an attractive partner?  Well, my story begins just like that --two avid hunters enjoying an afternoon.  My heroine loves to hunt and, in fact, can outshoot most guys.  My hero is an ordinary guy, but he's strong and protective, loving and sexy, and determined to protect her no matter what.  He's a hero in every sense of the word.

As evening approaches, the weather changes and a huge snow storm hits.  Things go real bad when they get two flat tires, making it inpossible to drive out of the desert and get home.  They find some shelter, meet up with two crooks, and must flea through the storm for their lives. My characters have to find a way to survive in the middle of the desolation where there's nothing but sagebrush, rabbits, coyotes and no civilization for miles.   

There's a sprinkle of delicious sex, some danger and suspense.  It's a short story, a great read.  To find out more, you'll have to wait and buy the story.

Well, I'm off to finish writing.  Check my website -- -- for more information.

Stay warm.  Read a good book.  Watch for my next story.

Need Something to Spice Up Your Day?

Do you need something to heat up your life?  Try getting a copy of my story, Can You Trust A Cowboy?  It' a little more spicy than alot of my stories, but I think you'll enjoy it.  Can You Trust A Cowboy? has a determined truck driver, a woman who loves the trucking business and is good at what she does.  Bring in a handsome construction company owner named Cowboy, add in some mystery and steamy sex and you've got a great read.
What have some of the reviewers had to say about Can You Trust A Cowboy?

Kris from Happily Ever After Reviews:  "This fabulous romantic mystery by K. R. Bailey is a true winner in my opinion.  She drops just enough crumbs to keep you on the edge of your seat, trying to guess who the bad buy is, until the very end....It's hard to tell what is more intriguing, the scrumptiously steamy romance, or the edge of your seat, who-done-it mystery." 

Rose from Romance at Heart Magazine:  "Can You Trust A Cowboy? has it all...Ms. Bailey raises the stakes in Can You Trust A Cowboy? and ups the ante on love.  This sassy, sexy tale is rife with suspense, innuendo, and danger.  If you love romantic suspense, this is a read you won't want to miss."

Long and Short Reviews"Can You Trust A Cowboy? is a fast fun steamy read with a twisty mystery, a dollop of thrills and a whole lot of romance."

It's snowy and cold in Northern Utah, the perfect weather to settle in next to the fire, get a beverage of your choice and you gotta have some chocolate too.  Add to this a spicy romantic read, and I'd say you're ready for one of my favorite ways to spend some time.  Can You Trust A Cowboy? is definitely hot enough to heat up your day.  It'll keep you guessing til the end.

That's my favorite way to spend a cold afternoon.  I'd love to hear how you like to spend your wintery days.  If you love to read, I dare you to try Can You Trust A Cowboy?  I know you won't be sorry.

Can You Trust A Cowboy? is available in e-book formats through Bookstrand Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Happy New Year 2013

New Years is a time for reflection of the things we accomplished, the friends and family we spent time with, the fun places we may have visited, and a time to put those memories – good and bad – away into our minds and look to the future.  As I watched the celebrations going on around the world when we ended 2012 at midnight, I found myself thinking are we celebrating the end of a year or celebrating because we have a chance to begin anew?

A new year is the time when people make new goals, strive to do better, and find ways to improve their lives, their careers, their relationships.   To me, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what we did that made us happy and what we need to change because I think finding that place in your life that brings you happiness is so very important.

I thought I’d share a couple of things I want to do this year.  I don’t make goals because for some reason, I never seem to complete a goal list.  I know I’m told to identify the individual steps that will make the goal more attainable, but I’m one of those people who veers off and soon the goals are put behind me.  But, I am a person who has things I want to accomplish, things I feel I need to do, both in my personal life and in my writing.  Here are a few of them:

1.       I want to work harder to be more positive.  I find things tend to pull me down, and I don’t like the person I become when this happens.

2.       I want to find more time to write.  I love writing and creating new stories.  Several years ago, writing became my passion, and too often I let life – household chores, errands, family, friends, etc., get in the way of my finishing a new story.  I want to change that.

3.      I want to work on getting more healthy.  It seems like everyday someone is telling us how to eat better, exercise more, and I need to find that path that fits me and my lifestyle.

4.      I plan to be happy.  I plan to spend time with my husband and family playing, camping, riding our ATVs, and spending time in the mountains enjoying our cabin and the wildlife.  Even though this is number four on my list, it really should be number one and top of the list for me.

5.      I want to help others.  I can mentor someone who is trying to start writing.  I can give of my time to someone who is sick.  I hate to admit it, but too often I don’t go the extra mile to help someone and I don’t like being that type of person.

6.      I want to be more positive.  Have you found like I have that it’s easier to agree with negative things that are being said than to take a stand and say something positive, uplifting, or good?

So here’s my little bit of advice as we start a new year - 2013:  Spend time with someone you love.  Smile when you can.  Find a great book to read.  Do one thing every day that makes you happy. I really believe these things will help me be a happier person in 2013 and I hope it will help you, too.

I’d love to hear from you.  What things do you want to accomplish?  What things make you happy?
