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.

FORGED IN FIRE by Lindsay McKenna, Delos Series, Book 3 now available!

Happy Holidays, everyone!
Those who love my new Delos Series, Book 3, Forged in Fire, is now available in paperback and ebook! Did you know you can read a FREE chapter of it? Down below is the URL!

Cover forged in fire
Here’s an EXCERPT from Delta Force Sergeant Matt Culver’s book!

Excerpt from Forged in Fire by Lindsay McKenna
Delos Series, Book 3

3 dara bellydancing copy

“Matt seriously doubted that. In past USO shows, some women had sung, performed in a string quartet playing classical music no one recognized, or done a dancing act. While he had an appreciation of the arts in general, it just wasn’t something that got his blood pumping. His head fell forward, chin almost on his chest, and his mind started to drift off into the zone just before sleep.
“Dara and Callie are belly dancers!” Maggie crowed.
The entire chow hall erupted into loud hooyahs, clapping and wolf-whistling.
Matt jerked awake. He scowled, rubbing his face. What? Belly dancing! No way. He stared irritably at a smiling Maggie in her fall-colored outfit.
“Hey,” Beau said, jabbing him in the ribs, “did you hear that? Belly dancers! God, I’ve died and gone to heaven!”
“In your dreams,” Matt muttered irritably.
“Seriously, bro. You were half-asleep a minute ago. Now look at you,” Beau howled, slapping Matt good-naturedly on the back.
“. . . and the sisters will be performing Turkish belly dancing,” Maggie was explaining. “It’s different from Egyptian or other types of belly dancing.”
Turkish belly dancing? Now, that got Matt’s full attention. He’d spent his summers until age eighteen is Kuşadası, Turkey, where his three wealthy uncles had villas. He was very familiar with belly dancing because it was beloved throughout the country, and he’d seen professional dancers perform many times over the years.
Straightening up, his arms fell to his sides. Seriously? These two women were going to perform as belly dancers? Matt could feel the electricity in the chow hall amp up. It felt like a fifty-thousand-watt bolt of lightning had just slammed into the place. The men were focused, all eyes on that hastily created platform where the acts would perform. The anticipation ratcheted up, the tension palpable.
Matt felt as if a pack of wolves were waiting for those two sweet lambs to come out onstage. God, this place was going to explode, he thought, looking around.
“. . . Now, please welcome the McKinley sisters! Dara is in the red costume and Callie in the purple one,” Maggie shouted, moving offstage, gesturing toward the other end.
Matt’s eyes narrowed as he saw two women come running like sleek, beautiful gazelles from behind the chow-hall-line wall. His heart thudded hard in his chest as the taller one, her blond hair long and halfway down her back, barefoot and wearing a red and gold belly-dancing costume, came out first.
Holy shit! She was gorgeous! His mind went from getting sleep to an intense focus on the woman’s tall, lithe body. Her arms were long and sinuous, her slender hands clapping zills—small finger cymbals—her movements slow and graceful.”
