Happy Thanksgiving from Maggie McGinnis
Tis the season of thankfulness, and like most parents, I do my level best to make sure that spirit doesn’t get lost in the flurry of Black Fridays and Cyber Mondays and Techno-Thursdays and the seventeen pounds of toy catalogs in the mailbox. I have to admit, though, that my kiddos beat me to the punch last week when they asked me to cut out a bunch of hearts so they could decorate the windows for Thanksgiving.
Secondary Characters Gone Rogue by Maggie McGinnis
Before I started writing seriously, I used to listen to authors talk about how their characters would take over their books. I was mystified. You’re the author, I’d think. How in the world did you not know what this character was going to do? She’s a figment of your imagination! You created her! You OWN her, for goodness sake!
Ha. Read more
WInner Announced! #ReleaseDay for Accidental Cowgirl + $15 EGC giveaway!
So Accidental Cowgirl comes out today, and this is all kinds of awesome. It’s awesome for me because maybe now I can stop chomping my fingernails in anticipation. It’s awesome for you because you finally get to meet Decker, and this is a Very Good Thing.
Because Decker is, well, perfect is a strong word, but we’ll go with it because, well, he just is. And I’m not just saying that because I created him from scratch, I swear. He’s oh-so-hot in those jeans and that Stetson. He walks with confidence, rides with just enough swagger, loves with just enough … well … you’ll have to read to find that out. His eyes can turn a city girl into mush, and his hands? Read more

Guest Post: With a Little Help from my Friends by Maggie McGinnis
We’re only twelve (12! Yippee!) days away from the official release of Accidental Cowgirl, and I have to be honest.
My secondary characters are a little jealous about all the attention Kyla and Decker are getting. Maybe a lot jealous. Jess and Hayley claim they’re the whole reason this story even started, what with them tricking Kyla into this dude ranch vacation, and they think they deserve a little shout-out. Since they’re sort of right (and since I really need them to cooperate for the next two books), I thought I’d give them the attention for today.

But It Was an Accident! by Maggie McGinnis + 3 eBook Copy Giveaway!!
Anyone who’s known me long knows I don’t spend a lot of successful time in the kitchen. I say successful because I spend an inordinate amount of time in there. Really. I apparently just don’t have the cooking chromosome that makes any of those hours remotely worthwhile.
Take fudge, for instance. How hard is it to read the recipe on the fluff jar and make it work? Seriously, it says NEVER FAIL FUDGE … in really big letters. So last week, in a craving-induced fit of madness, I decided I could totally make fudge. However, after I’d dumped all the ingredients into an apparently not-quite-big-enough pan, I made the ill-fated decision to split my attention by answering the phone. The ensuing conversation went something like this: Read more
But All My Friends Are Doing It!! by Maggie McGinnis
In the world of romance writing, there was one place to be last week: Atlanta, where the entire romance publishing industry gathered for our national conference. So I was there, right?
Despite conniving and bribery and more than a little pouting, I was unable to convince my dear husband that Nationals was more important than our children having, well, food and water and supervision for the week. Read more
