Today is day 20-something on Beth Ann Masarik's incredible blog tour. She's going all February and you can find the schedule at the link above. We're honored to have her and hope all you Morgan Readers give her a big welcome! Today she's taking a bit of a break from the usual questions of "how did you come up with this story" and "who inspires you most" type questions and she's talking about her upcoming wedding, on a most auspicious day no less. Oct 14 is Mr. O'Reilly's birthday! A good day for celebration if we ever heard of one. At the end, be sure to register for the awesome give away she's doing for one lucky TMD reader.
PS: Be sure to wish Jmo a Happy Birthday! He's so young, it's hardly worth it, but hey, he keeps us laughing.
Thank you, Morgan and Jmo, for having me on your blog today! For those of you who are meeting me for the first time, it’s a pleasure to meet you all! And for those of you who are coming back for more, welcome back! You guys are in for a real treat today! Why? Because today I am going to talk about my wedding plans!
*hears wedding bells in the background*
Yup! For those of you who don’t know, I am engaged, and am getting married on October 14th of this year. SQUEE! LOL. I honestly couldn't be happier with the man I am with. Out of everyone I know, he is one of the most supportive of my crazy endeavors. He puts up with all my rants and writerly craziness. I mean hey, he’s only going to have to live with me in a couple of months, he may as well get used to it, right? LOL.
Most girls dream of getting married in a big church and all that jazz. But me, I've always dreamed of getting married in my little parish in the town of Port Washington, NY. It is a 60 year old church, and has a cute little charm about it that makes it feel warm and welcoming. No, it’s not as big as the other Catholic church in town, but it’s my church, and the people there are warm and welco
ming. It’s my second home, and the people there are part of my family in some way or another. I was reassured that Tuesday night when Kevin & I were crowned the King and Queen of Mardi Gras at our church’s party.
I will be perfectly honest, there are times where I am scared crapless that I am going to mess up my relationship, or scare Kevin off with all my crazy ideas. I mean, hello, I talk about my characters as if they are real people sometimes. Who doesn't think that’s crazy? LOL. But, for whatever reason, Kevin sticks around, and I am grateful for it. I honestly don’t know where I would be today without him in my life.
We have 8 months and counting until our big day and we still have so much left to do. HOWEVER, we can cross the following items off our list:
My wedding dress Bridesmaid dresses The Church The reception hall Mother of the bride dress Our wedding rings
While those are some major things that we have done, we still have so much to do! I know we will get it done in due time, but the clock is ticking, and soon enough the big day will be here.
I have been blogging wedding progress reports on my blog which is www.bahbammymusings.wordpress.com. Please feel free to follow along and offer any wedding advice you can give us!
Why am I writing about weddings, when I should be talking about The World Among Us? Well, I felt like a bit of a change for one thing, and for the other, weddings lead to romance and The World Among Us is heavily involved with love…especially the forbidden kind.

Yes, it's another fun and rollicking Blog Hop put on by the awesome authors of JustRomance.me and we're playing for all we're worth this weekend and getting in the mood for Valentine's Day. If you're starting here, be sure to pick up the hop at the beginning by clicking on the link above.
Frankly, this year it's taking a little work to get in the mood. Jmo and I have both been nose to the grindstone, writing, writing, writing. Which is a good thing. A great thing! But tends to leave our significant others wondering, yet again, where we're traveling inside our heads.
So, with romance in the air, I got to thinking about some of the most romantic moments in my life and I asked Jmo to give me a little nudge. He never disappoints.

He's still romantic!
PS: If you haven't met us before and are curious, and who isn't really, at the top of this page, on the right, is a list of pages associated with this blog. The list includes J. Morgan's books, Morgan Q. O'Reilly's books, and a some we did together. Ya know, just in case you want more stuff to read, and who doesn't! We love to read! So dig in and enjoy.

Things are hopping at TMD this week. Jmo is on a roll with his great review for Were Love Blooms from Joyfully Reviewed. (See previous post) Super happy for you, Jmo!
The second book in MorganO's Open Windows series released yesterday and already has two reviews posted. (Refresher: Book 1 Til Death Undo Us, Book 2 Courage to Live).
To read the reviews in their entirety, click on the Blog Titles below.
The first review came from Romance Book Scene, who called it "... an emotionally gripping story ..."
L.T. Blue from Just Erotic Romance Reviews said, “I found Courage to Live to be an awesome book giving huge encouragement to anyone in an abusive relationship.”
Could things get any more awesome? Sure!
Starting Friday, Feb 10, we at TMD are participating in a Valentine's Blog Hop with a bunch of Just Romance Me authors. This means lots and lots of fun, and books, and great prizes for the blog readers who comment.
|Sign up here for a reminder!|
Until Friday, Jmo and I will be deep in our individual writing caves. Looking forward to seeing you this coming weekend!

Joyfully Reviewed has named Were Love Blooms its February Recommended Read! I can't thank Joyfully Reviewed or Tanya enough for the honor. Thanks to you both!
Here's a taste but for the whole review click on the Joyfully Recommended icon at the top of the page.
'...Run, ok southern ladies don’t run; order it for your electronic reading device as soon as you can...
It just doesn't get better than that! And, if it does I'm not sure I can handle it. Floating in the clouds with bunny ears on as it is.
