by Linda O. Johnston Last month I blogged here about anticipation, even including an official definition. And part of what I was anticipating then came true! Of course, I expected it to. I’d been waiting for the publication of my second K-9 Ranch Rescue story for Harlequin Romantic Suspense: Trained to Protect. It was, in… Read More
One of the definitions of anticipation in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary is: ” the act of looking forward; especially : pleasurable expectation.” That confirms I’m in a state of anticipation. Of what? The next two months, because in each of them I will have a new book published. Yes, I’ve already had two books published… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston Writing in multiple genres. I’ve blogged about that here before, and now it’s on my mind again enough for me to create another blog post about it. Why?

by Linda O. Johnston This month is fairly unusual for me. I’m fortunate enough to have had quite a few books traditionally published, with more coming up in the future. But it’s rare that they’re published back-to-back, one each in two adjoining months. Like now. As I’ve mentioned here before, BAD TO THE BONE, my… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston I’m delighted that it’s May. Or at least I was. This month, my third Barkery & Biscuits Mystery BAD TO THE BONE was published.

Cats, Dogs or–What’s Your Choice?
