Healing Summer author Elizabeth Seckman--Top Ten Reasons Why NOT to Write.

My good friend and encourager, Elizabeth Seckman is here with us today to tell us her top ten writing excuses. Her new release, Healing Summer was recently released by World Castle Publishing. If you read her first book, Past Due, you'll want to make sure you have the second story about the Coulter men. Be sure to check back here on Jan 17th for more on Healing Summer. Now, for Elizabeth's excuses:

 Top 10 Reasons For Not Writing
 10. Facebook addiction has no support group. 
 9. I am working toward becoming the Solitaire champion of the world. 
 8. My kids have bottomless pits for stomachs and expect me to feed them.
 7. My cat has decided the keyboard is her favorite napping spot. 
 6. Too many episodes of "Jersey Shore" robbed me of my vocabulary. 
 5. Too many years spent in solitary indoor confinement left me with rickets. 
 4. I'm too busy checking blog stats, sales ranks, and number of followers.
 3. My bad hair is weighing on my brain and won't let me think. 
 2. My royalty check came and it wasn't enough to pay the electric bill. 
 And the number one reason for not writing:
 1. After years of unyielding devotion to the written word, the health department has locked me out of my house.

Ditched at the altar…biopsied for cancer…Mollie Hinkle is having a bona fide bitch of a summer.When life sucks so hard it takes your breath away, what's a girl to do? Road trip! Pack a bag, grab a few friends, and leave the past and the worry in the rear view mirror. What wounds can’t be healed by a drive across the Heartland, where quarter flips at cross roads determine the route and the future? All roads lead to Craig, the second son and bad boy of the haughty Coulter line. Craig has spent his life taking care of number one—himself. He’s not interested in a relationship and he’s definitely not looking to fall in love. But if a morsel drops in his lap, who is he to refrain? Mollie’s not looking for love either, but truth be told, she’s not opposed to it. Heck, if fate brought her to the miniscule Montana town to find happily ever after, she won’t fight it.Perhaps it is a summer where love, not time, heals all her wounds.
