When Other Duties Creep In by Stacy Hoff


Now that my book, BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS, has launched, I should be back into my writing groove. Book 2 in the BUILDING LOVE series is almost ready to go, but book 3 needs to be completed. I’ve got to get this entire series wrapped up before I disappoint my publisher. Yet life keeps pulling me away.

Sooo many distractions! This winter, I’ve had to help my mother move from her house. Help my kids with extra homework projects. Schlep to medical appointments. Stand on line at DMV.  And those were just some of the time-consuming activities I did while not at work.

Now that springtime is here, I feel torn between whether I should be cavorting outside or locked up in my tiny little upstairs office, curtains drawn so my eyes don’t wander from the computer.

With everything going on, it’s been hard for me to keep my writing focus. Lately, I’ve been doing what I can to keep up my word-count. If I’m too busy keep my computer on, I at least keep my thinking cap on. I use my commute time to dream up new scenes. I look at the people around me as potential inspiration for new characters. I jot down notes whenever I can. Even typing in the “notes” section of my iPhone if that’s all I can manage.

Balancing all my responsibilities is hard to do. It’s a good thing that writing is a labor of love.

Book blurb for BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS (Book 1 of the BUILDING LOVE series)

Catherine “Cat” Warner has problems. The profits from her inns are down. The pressure from her parents is up. Her love life is non-existent. But Cat did manage to get the attention of tough, powerful, gorgeous hotel magnate Ty Orland. Unfortunately, his interest in her is for all the wrong reasons. Instead of wanting Cat, this debonair CEO only wants her land—a parcel he desperately needs for his next big development deal. Too bad, it’s not for sale. A people pleaser by nature, Cat knows to stand strong. If she caves in to the demands of this sexy, alluring man, it will be her own neck on the line.

Ty Orland has a lot of things going for him. Success. Power. Respect. Unfortunately, he’s also got an old chip on his shoulder and a new financial nightmare. His development deal is going down in flames—and fast. His only way out is if Cat sells him her strategically located parcel. But romancing the land from her is not easy when love gets in the way. The woman is as beautiful as she is beguiling. And Ty no longer knows which prize is more valuable.
