NEVER ENOUGH by Lindsay McKenna RELEASE DAY!!

March 1, 2017

release-day-2016-04-05-at-9-51-56-am

Finally, the sequel to FORGED IN FIRE, Book 3 of the Delos series that stars Matt Culver, Delta Force operator and Dr. Dara McKinley, a pediatrician, is here!

never-enough-3b_2_850-copy-3

BACKSTORY:
NEVER ENOUGH, 3B1, is a Delos series novella and sequel to Forged in Fire, Book 3. Being Indie, it’s fun to write the “big book” and then follow it with a “Well? What happened to Matt and Dara next?” and answer my readers burning question. I don’t know a reader that doesn’t appreciate a follow-up novella or sequel. When I’ve formed a bond with the main characters and have sympathy for them, I want to know what happened after reading the book.

Sergeant Matt Culver, Delta Force, has fallen in love with Dr. Dara McKinley, a pediatrician who was visiting Kabul, Afghanistan to do charity work for children. They fall in love, but this country is dangerous to anyone who is an American. After a harrowing escape at a village in mid-Winter, Matt must keep Dara alive.

I had fallen in love with Dara McKinley because she was thrown into a violent, life-and-death environment and had no clue as to how to survive it. Except that the man she was falling in love with, Sergeant Matt Culver, would become her guide, teacher and protector.

Sometimes courage comes in moments of shock, trauma and extreme conditions. Dara is a pediatrician, finishing up her residency, and getting ready to put a clinic for the poor near Alexandria, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. But all her dreams explode when her vehicle is attacked, leaving her in the harsh winter of Afghanistan, chased by Taliban.

Matt Culver is a survivor and is saddled with a woman who has never been under such duress. He’s fallen in love with her. The challenges are enormous, not only brutal winter conditions in the mountains, trying to keep her safe and knowing odds of living through this, are next to nothing. Somehow, they survive.

Dara needs some down time to recouperate from her trauma. Matt wants to make her dreams come true, and takes her to visit Hawaii. NEVER ENOUGH picks up at this point in their relationship.

There are a couple of stops for you today, that will give you an EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT from their story, a contest and my March 1st newsletter! A 3-fer 😉 ENJOY!

Titusville, Florida, Public LIbrary with their Lindsay McKenna book display–plus SWAG that the patrons can have!

Linda Townsend, one of the five Kensington Facebook Take Over for Wind River Wrangler, was a winner (she won a ‘mini-Roan’ bookmark, plus other swag), had asked if I had any ‘extra’ swag for 2 libraries that she frequented where she lived. I said: of course I do! 😉

Wind River Valley Facebook Party

I love libraries and I adore the librarians! They love books just as much as any reader or author. Did you know that from my sophomore to senior year at Medford Senior H.S., I worked in the library every day we had school. It must have been a foreshadowing of my life as a writer! I love libraries!

Today, 11.2.16, I got this photo and email from Brenda Reilly, who is the Head of Reference at the Titusville (Florida) Public Library.
After receiving the photo she took, I sent her back a thank you email message. For Libraries who want to work with me, I have ‘special’ SWAG for them, besides what I’d sent to Brenda. I have a cool handbag with the Delos symbol on it, plus a really neat spiral-bound notebook! I’ll be sending her 20 of each and I’m SURE her patrons will love them!

I also mentioned to her that I just had a new book out, Wind River Wrangler, Kensington Books, so added it in the photo too! I need to get MORE bookmarks from my publisher because I ran out (all given away)! Would love to put some of them into my next library box ;-). BUT….I was able to give them some super cool Kensington Wild Card decks!! BUT, I was able to giveaway Kensington’s much sought after WILD CARD deck of playing cards!!!

Special Library only SWAG from Lindsay McKenna photos:

For Libraries only, special SWAG for their patrons!  Here is a handy Delos Series bag.  I also put in the notebook AND a copy of Wind River Wrangler, Book 1, just out!

EXCERPT! Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay McKenna. CHOOSING YOUR BATTLES….

October 25, 2016

EXCLUSIVE GIFTS if you pre-order and they'll show up in your email box a day before the release date!

INTERVIEW:
Lindsay McKenna: If you’ve ever been stalked (and I have), it’s a terrible, 24 hour a day feeling of being hunted by an invisible hunter who wants to hurt you. I used that experience in this book and Shiloh’s reactions to her stalker, are from my own life laid over hers.

SCENE SET UP:
Shiloh Gallagher, an Easterner, a ‘tenderfoot,’ has been at the Wind River Ranch in Wyoming for almost 2 weeks. Roan Taggart, wrangler and her ‘babysitter,’ is riding with her. He and his men are taking a large herd of buffalo and herding them into a new area to graze. Shiloh has second thoughts about riding into the pasture at all…

wind-river-wrangler-2

Here is an exclusive excerpt:
“Shiloh was looking at all the brown humped buffalo cows and their frolicking calves. It looked bucholic. But the animals were huge! She saw about half a mile away on the opposite side of the pasture, two wranglers opening up the large gate to allow the mothers and calves to come through to the lush, green area. She saw Roan pick up his radio and talk to the other wranglers. Seesawing between staying outside the gate and following Roan in, she saw him finish off his chat with the wranglers.

Stuffing the radio into his saddlebags, Roan looked up at Shiloh. “Well?”

“I’m waffling.”

He grinned. “Yes, you are.”

Making a face, Shiloh admitted, “I don’t want you to think I’m a weenie.”

Chuckling, Roan lifted his hat and moved his gloved fingers through his hair. “I would never think that of you, Shiloh.” He came over and rested his hand against the rear of her saddle, looking up into her indecisive features.

“I’ll respect you no matter what you decide. Okay?”

Grimacing, she muttered, “I’m going in with you.” Looking around, anger tinging her voice, she added, “I’m tired of feeling scared all the time, Roan. If I was back in New York City, I’d be sitting imprisoned in my apartment, feeling like a convict behind bars because somewhere out there, a man wants to hurt me and I don’t know who it is.”

His heart wrenched. Roan eased his hand down her arm and caught her gloved fingers. “You don’t have to prove anything to me. All right?”

She tucked her lower lip between her teeth, squeezing his hand in return. “I’m just tired of being scared, Roan.”

“I know, Darlin’. But if you decide to come in, do it for yourself. Okay?”

Roan was right, she realized. “Yes,” she muttered, releasing his hand even though she didn’t want too. Just the intimacy Roan had automatically established with her, calmed her, helped her sort out what was really going on. “They’re just big, is all.

EXCERPT 3! Wind River Wrangler by Lindsay McKenna. RESISTING SHILOH….OR CAN HE?

October 24, 2016

Hi READERS!

This is so much fun sharing slivers and slices of Wind River Wrangler with you just before it’s release date of 10.25.16. Here’s the next one! Enjoy 😉

facebookcowboy3_3
Interview:
Lindsay McKenna: Every writer I know, including myself, has had Writer’s Block at one time or another. And Shiloh, being a New York Times romance writer, has it when she goes to visit Maud and Steve Whitcomb at their ranch in Wind River Valley. Roan Taggart, the wrangler and ex-black ops soldier, has been dissolving some of her fear of being found once more by her stalker. Let’s drop in on an exclusive excerpt with them as they eat their meal at the employee house:

SCENE SET UP:
Maud and Steve Whitcomb, owners of the ranch, had been friends with Shiloh Gallagher’s family for decades. They have invited Shiloh to stay as long as she wants with them. Roan Taggart has just gotten writer Shiloh Gallagher assigned to the employee house. It has been two weeks since Shiloh moved in and shares the employee house with him. The wrangler’s other job is to more or less ‘babysit’ Shiloh. Reluctant about the assignment at first, as time goes on, Roan finds out more about her…

EXCERPT 3 RESISTING SHILOH….OR CAN HE?

“Later, as they sat at one another’s elbows, eating dinner at the employee house where they lived, Roan detected a subtle sense of happiness around Shiloh. Again, nothing obvious, but his operator’s senses told him that. “You said you were writing a chapter? On your latest book? The one that’s due to your editor’s desk?”

“Yes.” She shrugged. “I woke up this morning WANTING to write for the first time since coming here.” She met his gray gaze, seeing interest in them. Roan, she was discovering, missed nothing. He listened to her without ever interrupting her flow of thought. “First time.”

“Is this a good thing?” he wondered, adding more spoonfuls of whipped potatoes onto his plate.

“Sure is,” she sighed, giving him a look of relief. “I’ve had writer’s block for the last six months. I just haven’t felt the driving passion to write.” She added some green beans onto her plate. “Ever since the stalker came into my life, my writing has turned off.”

“Kind of expected?”

“I suppose,” Shiloh muttered. “It’s hurt me in so many ways, seen and unseen.”

“It’s what we in the military call psy ops or psychological warfare.”

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF LINDSAY MCKENNA…A PEEK BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF AN AUTHOR’S LIFE…

October 13, 2016

Hey Readers!
Here’s a funny I want to share with all of you. I term it: A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A WRITER. You don’t get peeks behind the curtain often on us, but this one is worth sharing ;-).

My husband, David, is a voracious readers. I called him in from his office to come and look at the memes you folks had created. He about had a heart attack, haha….here’s how it went:

“Dave, come and see the promo ads that Kensington just sent me.”

Grumble, grumble…..”I’m busy….”

“Well UNbusy yourself and get in here. I want to see what you think of the memes.”

He comes shuffling into my office, scowling and leans over my shoulder.

I click on the Johnstone/McKenna ad.

fb-size-cowboy-copy

“Oh, my GOD!” he spouted, his eyes bulging. “Are you serious?”

“About what?” I demanded, not understanding his out-of-character reaction. He’s staring at the screen, at that ad.

“I don’t believe it!” He jabs his finger at the screen. “Do you KNOW who this man is? William Johnstone?”

“He writes westerns and is a New York Times Best Selling author for Kensington,” I replied, not understanding his wild man reaction.

“No, no, you don’t understand,” and he straightens up, his hands flying all over the place.

“WHAT don’t I understand, Dave? God, it’s an ad. If you don’t like it, say so, okay?”

He stares at me like I’m an alien who has just landed from Mars. “You don’t know who he is? He’s only the most famous western writer in the world! I’ve read dozens of his books. They’re the best of all the western writers I read.”

I give him a bored look. “You never tell me what author or what story you’re reading. How can I know?” (He’s a scorpio….they keep EVERYTHING to themselves…).

He looked at the ad, utter amazement in his expression. “That—that’s REALLY something that Kensington has put YOUR BOOK next to a book by William Johnstone! They must really think a lot of you.”

“So? You like the ad?”

“Like it? I-I’m stunned. I mean, Johnstone is the best of all the western writers in THE WORLD!!! He writes about more than just cowboys, too. He writes about mountain men, different aspects of the West…” and his voice trails off in admiration for the author.

(Thought you Girls would like to see this little diatribe ;-))

And then, on to meme #2 with the description of Roan…Dave looks at that and says, “That’s great writing they did on that meme.”

I gave him a one-eyebrow raised look. “That’s MY writing from the book, Dave. MINE. Not theirs.” (Note: he doesn’t read my books so there you go….couldn’t tell my writing from anyone else’s).

“Oh!” and then he flushes and gets embarrassed. “Oh…well, the writing is really, really good.”

“Bet you thought William Johnstone wrote it, huh?” I couldn’t resist a jab.

He kind of gave me a silly-assed grin and mumbled, “Well, for a moment, I really did think it might have William Johnstone who had wrote that ad for your book.”

And so it goes…a woman author gets NO credit for her writing, haha. I patted Dave’s arm and said, “Okay, go away now.”

“I do like the memes.”

“Good, glad you do. See you at dinner….”

He shuffles off toward his office, hands in pocket, shaking his head (and I’m sure it’s still over the surprise of his beloved William Johnstone being on the same ad with one of my books). I’m still laughing about it, but I closed the door first so he couldn’t hear me giggling.
