For the hop, we're sharing our favorite New Year's Memory. Well, New Years has come and gone, but there's one I'll always remember.
Anyone recall the scare back in 1999 when the experts were SURE the world was coming to an end? The computers would all crash and the planes would fall from the sky?
I remember it quite well. DH was working at an airport as a fueler (if you aren't sure, he fueled the plane - you'd be shocked how many people ask me what the heck he did as a 'fueler'). He had to work over the holiday and instead of being alone, I came along with him to work. Now this was also prior to 9/11 so it was still okay to tag along. We had some cheese, some shrimp, and watched the New Year come in on a grainy television. At the stroke of midnight, oddly enough, a plane happened to be taking off. I watched, a little apprehensively, as the plane zoomed into the sky. I mean, hey, they said the planes would fall from the sky.
Guess what? The tv was still grainy, the computers didn't crash, and that plane sure did take off. It went where ever it was going and made it back about six hours later.
So I can honestly say when everyone thought the planes were going to fall from the sky, I watched one take off and soar.

And because it's fun to find new books, here's a little bit about my latest release, Somewhere I Belong, out now from Liquid Silver Books.
He never knew what he was missing until he came home to find his place to belong—with her.
Sullavan Tanner walked away from Jarvis, Ohio, afraid to give his heart to the woman he loved. He lived the rock and roll lifestyle, but never quite made it to the big time. Fifteen years later, he’s back and ready to claim what’s his—if she’ll accept his help.
Marley Lockwood’s done asking for help. The family farm is more than she can handle, but if she can survive a cancer scare, the loss of her parents, the abandonment by her first love, and a messy divorce, she can handle anything.
Until Sully shows up.
Although she’s not interested in rekindling the love affair, she’s not above accepting Sully’s hands on the farm. What’s the worst that could happen? They get the farm out of the red and into the black? That’s her plan. They actually fall in love? The past says it won’t work, so she’s not hedging her bets.
Too bad Sully’s not giving up this time.
