Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00001]Wedding planner Tyler Warren left heartbreak behind when she ran away from her small Southern hometown and started a new life in a big city. Years later, she wants to believe in the fairy-tale endings her job promotes, but the clients she meets day after day seem to be more “Crazily Ever After” than “Happily Ever After.”

Meanwhile, her own attempts at romance play out as bizarre comedies rather than love stories, and she’s starting to think Prince Charming either fell off his horse or got eaten by a dragon. When unresolved issues from Tyler’s past complicate things even further, she discovers she may yet have some things to figure out before she can find her own happy ending.

This delightful first book in the Tales Behind the Veils series chronicles Tyler’s wacky misadventures, both personal and professional. Whether she’s getting insane requests from brides or outlandish requests on dates, you’re sure to be charmed and entertained by the Diary of a Single Wedding Planner.

Enjoy an excerpt:

“Here,” she said, gingerly holding out a pair of pantyhose between her French-manicured fingers. “Put these on.”

I swear for a minute I thought she meant for me to wear them. Then it dawned on me with sickened recognition that she wanted me to put the pantyhose on her. Ewww.

I stared at her a bit dumbfounded. I have been asked to do many things in this line of work. It’s definitely not as glamorous as the star-crossed wannabes imagine it. But never in the multitude of weddings have I ever been expected to put on another human being’s pantyhose. I thought surely she was joking. Surely, there was a bridesmaid left hiding in the room to do this. Surely, a meteor could come crashing into the hotel at that moment and create a hole to swallow me up.

As a girl with abundant thighs myself, it is my personal belief that support pantyhose are a relic left over from some medieval torture chamber. I have never been happier with the fashion world than when they decided pantyhose were out of style and we could all go bare-legged.

Putting on hose is an all-out swearing, sweating, pushing, pulling, aerobic activity that borders on assault. My granny used to say it’s like shoving two pounds of lard in a one-pound sack. To go through this torture against your own thighs within the privacy of your own room with the shades pulled down tight is one thing. But with someone else’s sweaty thighs? I was repulsed. It must have shown.

  1. Looks like a great read and I love the cover.

  2. Thanks for hosting!

  3. Is there one subject you would never write about as an author? What is it?

    • Another tough one! You come up with the best questions, Mai! I don’t think there’s a topic that I would never write about, but it would depend on the angle presented and the overall story. I always try to have something lighthearted and uplifting in my writing, so even if my character was tackling a tough issue, I would still focus on her growth and recovery and try to find something positive within her story.

  4. Thanks for hosting me today! I appreciate your time and effort!

  5. Do you ever suffer writer’s block and, if so, how do you overcome it?

    • Hi Peggy! Thanks for stopping by! I do suffer from writer’s block, especially if I have a lot of stress going on and I can’t get my mind to stop chattering enough to hear my story. Sometimes it helps to take a walk or take a break and come back to it. Sometimes I have to force myself just to sit and write, no matter what comes out. Just the act of doing it will at least allow me to clear my head enough to get something on paper, even if I end up deleting it all later! If I feel writer’s block is going on for days, sometimes I have to take some time away to refill my creativity bank. I see a move, or take a walk in nature, visit a museum, window shop in an antiques or home decor shop. Anything to nurture creativity and inspire me to get moving again! Thanks for asking. I appreciate your time!
