I struggled for over seven months to get Legacy written. Some of it was trying to get the story to come together exactly the way I had envisioned it, but a lot of the delays had to do with very personal reasons that I may someday have the courage to talk about, but not today. I even set the book aside for a while to write something "light." That was Cora's Pride (Book 1 in the Wilderness Brides Series), a book that was the start of a new series that's been in my head. It took me about a month to write that book, and I wanted to dive right in and write the second book, but I had to get Legacy done first.
I've had a lot of readers ask me to include photos of the places I write about in my books. That's not really possible to do in a romance novel, so I've tried to post as many images as I can on my Facebook page and in the fan group there. I've also created a Pinterest board with images specifically from locations in the Yellowstone books.
For the latest book, Yellowstone Legacy, I've compiled some images of the places my characters see and experience, that I would like to share in this post. While some of the images I'm going to post are mine, I've also used photos I couldn't possibly take myself from the Yellowstone website photo archives (public domain images), and quite a few are from photographs taken by a company called Trail Guides Yellowstone. They offer guided backpacking trips to various awesome locations in the Yellowstone backcountry. Their images are copyrighted, but they were gracious enough to allow me to post some of the photos from their website in this post.
So, I'll stop talking now, and let the pictures speak for themselves (with captions):

Book 7 in the highly anticipated Yellowstone Romance Series.
It's taken a little longer than anticipated to get to the finish line with YELLOWSTONE LEGACY, but it's almost here, and I thank you all for waiting so patiently for this book.
As this series comes to a close (I have a Book 8 planned, and possibly some more novellas), hopefully all - or most - questions about the Osborne Family and the Sky People and their connection to Yellowstone and each other will be answered, as we continue the journey with them through time.
If you have any questions that you're dying to get answers to, please ask in comments or you can email me privately. Hopefully, I will have covered most everything by Book 8.

I'm so pleased to introduce my guest author this week - Chad Strong. We first "met" in an online forum many years ago, and he's not only an all-around nice guy, but we both have stories in the Short-Story Anthology Rawhide N' Roses.
He's also recently ventured into the self-publishing world, and re-released his award-winning book, High Stakes.
Don't forget to comment at the end for a chance at an ebook copy of his book!
Thanks for finally being a guest on my blog, Chad.Please introduce yourself. Tell us a little about the person behind the pen.
