Check back for snippets from the novel in progress in Stephanie Queen’s Quirky Quips…
A fresh blanket of snow fell on the castle today. Meanwhile we didn’t have a chance to remove the last blanket. It’s a regular
frozen tundra of misery winter wonderland. I have new respect for Eskimos. Myren, my chauffeur, is looking into getting a couple of sled dogs. I hear him on the phone right now barking at someone named Bernard–or maybe it’s St. Bernard. Not sure.
Point is, Myren has a full-blown case of cabin fever. Me?
I’m fine. (So what if the windows are all smudged from having my nose pressed against them all day and I’m having trouble breathing right now.)
I’m making the best of this
ridiculously unlivable wondrous weather. We’ve got a roaring fire going here at the castle, a view of pretty 24cialisitalia.com white snow drifts out every window (except for the ones where the drifts are so high they’re blocking the windows) and I’m getting ready to cook dinner–something from a can I found down in the castle store room. Not sure what it is–I can’t read the label with all the dust acheter viagra on it. Or maybe I can’t see because there’s no daylight with all these snow flakes blocking the sun. Stupid Pretty snow flakes.
I’m sure this unidentified can of food will be tasty. In the meantime, I’m tapping away at my keyboard working on my novel The Beachcombers. It’s set on a beach. (Okay, I admit I just had a wistful thought about sun and sand.) That’s the beauty of writing novels–I can make stuff up. I can make up a place that hasn’t had any snow for decades and that doesn’t get dark at 4pm or never even gets light out at all (how do those Eskimos stand it?).
The important thing is to enjoy it. Snow is
stupid fun. I’ll go skiing tomorrow. As soon as Myren saddles up those sled dogs, we’ll head to the nearest ski resort and enjoy a vigorous day of skiing in the brisk mountain air on fresh snow. It’ll be cold and wet and icky glorious. I can see it now…
It’ll give me a reason to
be stuck at sit at my desk the rest of the week writing my novel because I won’t be able to move with a broken leg/arm/head anyway will have so many wonderful and exciting moments to write about.
least favorite thing about winter weather?

This Christmas season I was in the warm and fuzzy mood for a cozy small town story, so I wrote A Small Town Glamour Girl Christmas about a girl, Julie who looks like the iconic Audrey Hepburn. Even though she likes the uncomplicated straight forward life of living in a small town, when the dreamboat from her girlhood, London millionaire Jack Lamont returns to town, nothing is simple any more. She needs to make some tough choices in the midst of the heart palpitating excitement of falling in love.
One of the things that give small towns their charm are their traditions. In Julie’s town they have a Santa Parade down viagra online Main Street on Thanksgiving weekend each year – not quite on the scale of Macy’s, but a place to go where you can count on seeing neighbors and friends.

Four books to be exact–that’s now many I’ll be releasing in the next month! They don’t call me Queen for nothing. (actually ‘they’ don’t call me queen, and if they did, I’m not sure why they would–but you get what I mean–right?). They are Malice, Mischief & Mayhem, a romantic suspense boxed set featuring seven authors including me, The Romantics, book 3 of the Scotland Yard exchange program romantic comedy mystery series, Small Town Glamour Girl and Christmas on Main Street, a boxed set of Christmas stories with eleven authors including me.
You saw the cover for the soon to be released The Romantics, and now I’m sharing the DRAFT cover for Small Town Glamour Girl. This upcoming release is a contemporary romance. This is a new and different kind of story for me in the tradition of well, small town, homey, sweet romances. No castles in sight. London is mentioned, but the story doesn’t go there. It takes place during the Christmas season, one of my favorite times of year (after halloween because of all the candy). What does the cover say to you?
Myren, my chauffeur, likes the cover and is wondering how I got Audrey Hepburn to pose for it. (Luckily he’s good with cars). It took me three hours to explain the wonders of digital design and then I gave him the phone number of my cover designer. He’s been on the phone with her for a while now. I lost track. (Myren is techno challenged. But sshh! He’s very sensitive under the gruff, mysterious exterior.)
Let me know what you think of the cover. Did you recognize Audrey? Hope so–Myren can’t be the only one.
