A Few Words From Meggie...

Hiya! Alexa and I are so glad you've stopped by to join us. We're so excited to celebrate the release of Alexa's new book, Carry Me Home, that is part of the new Tease line. Oh, wait. I suppose I should tell you who I am. My name is Meggie MacDougall. The hero in Carry Me Home is Jamie MacDougall, me oldest brother. (Aye, I talk with an accent. I'm Scottish, after all!)
Do you want to know how this story came about? Aye? Well, one of Alexa's grand editors emailed and asked her to be a part of Decadent Publishing's new project, Tease. Naturally she was honored and excited and a bit nervous. But how wonderful to be asked!

Straight away Alexa knew she had the perfect couple for this lovely little story-  Jamie, and his wife, Mary. You see, all three of us are a part of Alexa's very first book, Her Highland Champion. After Alexa finished that story, she knew all we MacDougalls had a lot more to say and do. So, after the editor asked her to write for Tease, Jamie and Mary's impending divorce took over Alexa's mind and she went to work writing Carry Me Home. It was a whirlwind of a story, although a heartache for us all. I mean, me daft brother was about to lose the only lass he'd ever loved and if.... Och! I cannit share anything else. I promised Jamie, Mary and Alexa I'd not say too much. For some reason they all think I talk too much!
All right. All I'll say now is if you want a good cry and a good laugh, then get on your way to buying this book as soon as you can. You'll not be disappointed.
Now, since this is part of Alexa's Release Party for Carry Me Home, let's get to the question you need to answer for a chance at a prize. Have any of you come across a secondary character you definitely wanted to learn more about?

  1. Great post, Meggie! How wonderful to learn more about you. I'm very much looking forward to reading this story. As to your question, yes, I often run across secondary characters I want to know more about and hopefully read their stories.

  2. Loved the post, Meggie! It was fun getting to know you. I do run across secondary characters I'd like to know more about. It is really neat to have an 'I know who this is!' moment when I start a new book.

  3. OMG how awesome! Love the post and the accent. Are those photos of your trips? Take me next time!

  4. Quite beautiful. Hopefully someday I'll be able to pop over to Scotland for a jaunt in the loch!

    Excellent news Alexa!

  5. Thanks for visiting, everyone! Yes, these are pictures from Glenfinnan, Scotland, which is my inspiration for Glenhalish. And just so you all know Meggie's book is my next one! We're just waiting on a release date for it.

  6. OMG - GORGEOUS pictures - you just bring your settings to life and those pictures are perfect. Can't wait to have CARRY ME HOME on my kindle!

  7. Yes, any of the secondary characters from the IAD series

  8. I love when secondary characters jump out and almost demand their own stories because I love series/connected books.
