One Day at a Wedding Series

Image The funny thing about writing, well one of the funny things about writing, is that sometimes the story doesn’t go where you thought it might or it doesn’t end when you thought it would. When I decided to join the Authors of Main Street, for another boxed set, I quickly came up with the plot for my novella, Once Upon a Wedding.  Cassie and Dan talked to me constantly, ever before I started writing their story. (Hearing voices in your head…another one of the funny things about writing.) It was probably half way through their story, that I decided Dan’s voice needed to be heard. He wanted so badly to tell his side of the story, to talk about the things that kept him away from Cassie at the start, and how he planned to win her over. So, Every Other Wedding, the 2nd in what is going to be a summer series, was born! The best part is that I have at least 2 other stories floating in my head, so the series may continue past the summer. I might not be able to put out one a month, like I will this summer, but I have room and stories to grow. I love a story line that gets me excited and flows easily when I set out to type. They certainly don’t always go that way. So, this summer please check in to see where these characters are headed, whether they are headed down the aisle or running from one. For now, you can read Once Upon a Wedding as part of the Weddings on Main Street boxed set by The Authors of Main Street.

Once Upon a Wedding – COVER REVEAL

Wedding Novella Series - Book 1

Wedding Novella Series – Book 1

As posted today on Authors of Main Street’s Blog – Here is the cover for the first in my Wedding Novella Series, out this summer!

 

Welcome to my COVER REVEAL DAY!

Once Upon a Wedding will be available June 9th, as part of the newest boxed set by The Authors of Main Street, titled: Weddings on Main Street.

You are cordially invited to attend more than eleven weddings this summer, as told by the lovely writers who brought you the Best-Selling Christmas Anthology, Christmas on Main Street. The reception to our boxed set was beyond our imagination and it seemed only natural to get together again, this summer.

Eleven writers, with distinct voices and brand new tales all surrounding wedding season. Is there anything more romantic than a wedding? Whether you are getting married, in the wedding party, or a guest it’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of the day.

Unless, you are a single, late 20’s gal, who is plain tired of weddings and everyone asking her when it’s her turn. In Cassie Anderson’s case, the magic of the day wears off pretty quick. Granted, it could also be the horrid dresses taking up valuable space in her closet, a closet that wouldn’t even fit her own wedding dress, if she could find a man. 🙂

As Cassie’s friends from high school and college get married and pair up for life, she has high hopes for it being her turn – one day. Even when she does meet someone whom she can’t seem to shake, she fears it will never happen. Every time she sees Dan Simmons, who has gotten very hunky since high school, the spark and sheer magnetic pull between them is palpable – but their timing is always off, way off!

Luckily, Cassie has a best friend, Thad Carlmont, who is her constant companion and date to all of these events, so at least she doesn’t have to go stag. Even if Thad spends most of his time, as her date, trying to score other lonely wedding goers, he makes a better date than her bouquets.

Each time she attends a wedding where Dan is also a guest she wonders, if maybe this time, the timing will be just right!

Check it out on June 9th, and see what happens between Cassie, Dan and the much too handsome Thad.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Authors of Main Street and I know our new readers, and those who already enjoy our work, are going to love this new anthology. Cassie, Dan and Thad are jumping up and down waiting for their chance to meet you, this June 9th, and share the first book in their novella series.

All month-long, this blog is dedicated to cover reveals and sneak peeks, into the novellas that will make up, Weddings on Main Street. So, make sure to check back, ask questions, and get into the wedding spirit with us – all summer long.

Summer Release Schedule for my Wedding Novella Series:

June 9th, Once Upon a Wedding RELEASING in the Weddings on Main Street Anthology

July 1st, Once Upon a Wedding Novella will release separate from the anthology

July 15th, Every Other Wedding Novella (2nd Book – Dan’s Story) RELEASING

All the best,

Kelly Rae

Spring into Step

My Office

My Office

The business of writing, is often a lot less fun, than actually writing. I know when I was younger and dreamt of making this my life’s work; I assumed I would sit at a desk, write best-sellers, occasionally setting out on a world book tour, all the while my minions would take care of the rest.

Joke is on me it seems:

1. Still no best-seller has jumped out of my laptop

2. Book tours cost a lot of money, and that would probably mean #1 would need to occur

3. Minions cost money, and again please refer to #1

4. Social Media was not even in the picture when I was 12, so it never occurred to me how much work would be involved in staying “social”

So, today when I have finished the 2nd novella in my summer series (more info to be announced on Friday, so please check back) and it’s ready for editing and all that is left is to either start #3 in the summer series (which I don’t want to do until tomorrow) or do BUSINESS – I at least want to do it some place warm and cozy and where it feels a lot less like work. Writing doesn’t feel like work, but the rest of the branding and marketing, sure as heck does.

Thank goodness for warm spring days, cool drinks and a deck with a gorgeous view!

I hope everyone else is enjoying their day, even if the weather isn’t as nice as mine.

Kindly,

Kelly Rae
