Cover Reveal and Launch Team

It's here! The cover to my latest book, Alaskan Hideaway, up on AMAZON. The book is available for preorder and comes out July 1st. I love the northern lights and the cozy little cabin. What do you think?

He traveled 3,800 miles to be alone

…but is it what he really wants? 

Relocating to Alaska after a family tragedy seemed an ideal way for author R.D. “Mac” Macleod to grieve in peace. But solitude feels overrated when Mac’s around B&B owner Ursula Anderson and her orphaned goddaughter, Rory, who’s already bonding with his dog. Worse, he’s imagining a future with Ursula and Rory. Is it time to finally forgive himself?

I'm putting together a lauch team to read and promote advance copies of the book. Fifteen people will be chosen randomly. If you're a sweet romance fan and would be interested, you can find details in my lastest NEWSLETTER. Don't wait too long; sign-up ends April 20th.

Brunch in Alaska

Warm temperatures after a big snow mean it's hard for Anchorage moose to get around, so they're wandering out of the parks and into the streets where the going is easier. This one dropped by to trim my birch trees this morning. Roxy sounded the alarm, but the moose ignored her.

Ice Scupltures in Fairbanks

My daughter and her boyfriend came to visit, so this past weekend, we went to Fairbanks, Alaska to see the ice sculpture park. The international ice carving championship wasn't held this year, but they still had an amazing collection of ice sculpture. 

There were carvings made from single blocks of ice, about 5x3x8 feet, with amazing detail. Then there were the larger scupltures, made from multiple blocks stacked together. If you look closely at some of them, you can see the seams where the blocks meet. And finally, there was the kid's park, with climbing sculptures like this ship, plus slides, mazes, and even spinning cups of ice. 

We talked with one of the sculptors who told us about the carving process and how he got into it. He said last year's competition included contestants from forty US states and twenty different countries. 

I was amazed by the intricate detail in these sculptures. We saw them in the daylight, but I'm sure they were even more beautiful at night when lit by colored lights. Well worth the visit.
