Canadian Summer Adventures - Who wants to EXPLORE this summer?

What interesting adventures do you have 
planned for the summer? 

Week long trips? Day trips? Exploring? Picnics?

Having two young kids who will be out of school, the pressure to plan is on again. Outside of a few weeks of day camp, swimming lessions and eldest minion's 10 day trip for leadership camp, there are some local adventures I'd love to try with them this year.

My main driving inspiration to explore this summer, are CAVES! I've written about caves in 2 of my books so far, and still can't get enough. My obsession is the magnificent structures and hidden treasures that lay beneath the surface. I adore the mystery and intrigue, along with the geographic anomalies you can find deep inside these remarkable places. The mineral deposits, how time, water and wear have defined these remote spaces into spectacular places for adventure. Oh, the extra story inspirations I expect to find inside these gems!!!

Closest to home and top of the list are:

Considering I've never actually ventured inside a cave yet, myself, I'm grateful for the amazing photgraphic adventures I've indulged in thus far. My two stories that incorporate my love of caves are:

Dragon Temptation - a 1 Night Stand Story
A Cougar Among Wolves - A Black Hills Wolves story.

Dragon Temptation

Cindy Dunham has become sexually emaciated, after a long dry spell and no prospect of romance in her near future. With her best friend’s upcoming wedding, loneliness is taking the lead, and she is starving for erotic rhapsody. The prospect of a blind date for the nuptials is embarrassing, but a necessary evil. The match Madame Evangeline finds for her leaves her reeling with conflict and jealousy. Will she ever get her carnal hunger gratified?

Yong Li, is no longer satisfied being the third wheel in his brother’s love life. Desperate to branch out and have an experience all his own, he is fraught with his ancient affliction that runs interference with the prospect of any normal relationship. Having had a life altering 1 Night Stand before, he seeks the help of his old friend, Madame Eve to find a new mate just for him.

A Cougar Among Wolves

A sadistic attack leaves Klaya, a Puma Clan Cougar, critically injured and the last of her family ferociously slain. She stumbles into Black Hills Wolf territory and collapses. Now under the protection of the pack, she finds herself whisked away to hide out in a cave until her old friend the alpha returns. Potentially the last of her shifter kind, she has nothing left to lose, but her life and a chance to avenge her brother. 

After a dangerous rescue, on the edge of pack territory, Seth and Rogue take a woman on the brink of death back to the pack. Her identity and why she was brutalized is a mystery. The pieces soon fit together proving this assault was no coincidence. The Black Hills Wolves pack faces a bigger threat than they could even imagine. The trio soon find themselves on a tumultuous journey of life and death and relentless lust. 


So tell me, what adventures do you plan to embark on over the summer?

Happy reading,

Author Life & Summer Loving (@KaceyHammell) #Summer #Canada #Writing #Fun

Good morning!

It's been a great summer already -- or at least June.  What's been happening around here? Well, look for sequels to come your way, readers! I've been busy on Canadian Muscle 2, and have an outline of Stirred by Love 2 as well. There are some other books in the works, I received rights back from a publisher, plus another story I want to revamp and share with everyone. It has been a crazy eight months for me -- health wise, personally and professionally -- but all is good. 

With Haidee, a "Hammell's Heroine"
In May I enjoyed a fun-filled few days in our nation's capital at the RTC 2016 Book Signing. I loved visiting with readers I'd met at the 2015 one, and new readers this year! Of course it was fantabulous seeing some of my street team/reader group there as well. These ladies are so inspiring and I can't wait to share all the exclusive excerpts and goodies with them as I write new stories.

And of course, my author pals who are just too amazing for mere words.

3 of the best authors I know and adore:
(L to R: Me, Jessica E Subject, Layna Pimental, Kali Willows)

With my college grad!
June has been a bit of bat-shit crazy!! LOL It really has. A lot of birthdays, my oldest child just turned 20 AND finished her Nursing course in college! Time has flown by. I have another graduation in a couple of weeks, my youngest son/child graduates from grade 8 as well. It boggles the mind how old THEY are. Not me, no not in the least, they get older not their mothers! *g*  The years have flown by so quickly, I'm not sure how to keep up...or hold that empty nest feeling away in the coming years. Locking them in their rooms would be too much right? Sigh. What's a mom to do? *g*

We don't have any huge plans for this summer. My older 2 kids are of course working, so will be a lot of days with the youngest and writing! That's all I hope to do, but I promised him some day trips here and there. We haven't figured out an itinerary yet but we'll see. We really enjoy leaving the "school days routine" out the window during the summer and fly by the seat of our pants. 

But lots to look forward to. New books, fun summer days and some great reading as well! Been too long since I spent a few days just pleasure reading. Time to get back to that as well.

Be sure to check out the "Author's Appearances" page. I have another book signing in September in London, Ontario. More info on that HERE.

Until next month,
Live, Love, Laugh.

It's a cool day here, but yesterday was an entire season warmer. Nothing like what the southern US gets, but I wished the entire day that we had a working air conditioner. (We are supposed to get a new one on Tuesday.)

Since we are approaching full-on summer, I wanted to share some upcoming events that I will be a part of where you can stock up on some amazing books and enter some great giveaways.

The first event is the Self-Publishing Roundtable Multi-Author Cross Promo Giveaway happening June 22-24. It includes FREE Romance ebooks and a Giveaway.


With July 1st being Canada Day, and the 5th year anniversary of my first published story, I'm participating in the Canada Day Blog Hop.

Plus, I'm participating in a couple of events with the Science Fiction Romance Brigade. July 11-15 is the SFR Brigade's Summer Blog Hop.

And July 18-22 is an SFR Brigade FREE and sale event.

BRYCE: Galactic Defenders Book One

A dedicated Defender…

Bryce fell in love once, but after Lalia was ripped away from him, he locked his heart from feeling anything for anyone else. Instead, he devotes his life to the Galactic Alliance, killing every bloodthirsty Erebus he comes across.

A shunned princess…

Lalia Comosova fell in love with the wrong man. When her parents learned of her transgressions, they sent her to Earth to hide her error in judgment from the rest of the kingdom.

A second chance?

When these lovers are reunited after many years apart, they have a chance to find happiness together. But fate steps in and threatens to rip them apart as it did years ago.

Stay tuned!

You may be transported to a dystopian world where rebels are fighting to live and love, or to another planet for a romantic rendezvous.

When Jessica isn't reading, writing, or doing dreaded housework, she likes to get out and walk with her giant, hairy dog her family adopted from the local animal shelter.
