Subtitle This Cover - Reading Romances Blog Hop

Rules: Create a post with your subtitle(s), as many as you want, for this book cover, and link to this post! Please link to Reading Romances, or, the people who tipped me off, Coffee Beans & Love Scenes

You have the full week (till next Thursday 8-25) to join.

Here's what I came up with for Subtitles:

A Passion for Glory: A Patient for the Chiropractor

A Passion for Glory: High School Pole-Vaulting Pays Off - Who Knew?

A Passion for Glory: We're Gonna Need A Bigger Horse


The last week has been both rough, and surprisingly fruitful for me.  My elderly (and not particularly nice) father passed away last Friday.  I did not fly to the (USA) East Coast for the memorial services, as I was waiting to hear if my son and his g-f needed my support as they dealt with the loss of their 19-week baby-to-be last Sunday, and whether I would be traveling in a different direction.  (I will be, just not immediately.)

Until a day or so ago, I really couldn't cope - couldn't read blogs & comment, couldn't write,  simply worked on putting one foot in front of the other and trying to remember to brush my teeth.  (Did I, this morning...?  Phew!)  I had a couple of blogs already "in the can" which went out on schedule.  Thank you all for who visited and commented. I think I got back to you, but if I didn't, please don't take it personally.

Life has a way of doing this to us, when we think we're on a straight road that we can see for miles ahead, suddenly there's a bend or two we never saw coming.  (The wisdom of L.M. Montgomery's Anne Shirley, one of my fav heroines.)

In the midst of my turmoil, my fabulous feedback group (you know who you are!) totally liked my denouément pages for my WIP.  And, that freed me to finish another chapter, so, 34 down, 2 to go.  Hopefully this weekend I'll get one more done.

To all my longtime followers, and my new ones, THANK YOU all, so much.  I treasure your comments and feedback, as they often expand my mind in a totally different direction than I was going with my post.  My goal is to provide content that makes us all laugh and think and grow, as writers and human beans, in the coming months. 

Beginning with the amazing (and USA Today best-selling) Lauren Dane, here on Monday with her blog tour for Once and Again.

Is there anything in particular you'd like to see here, in coming months?  Leave a comment and let me know.
