Dear Mr. Spacey

Yeah, I know I’m not one of your favorite people, but this letter is not only about me. I’m presumptuously speaking for quite a few others. I’m confident I can do that because well, there are lots of Richard Armitage fans who cannot make it to London yet are dying (or almost dying; it feels like dying) to see Richard in The Crucible, so I come with a suggestion, which you may have already heard.

Many of us have been looking at the promotional materials for The Crucible, and I’ll admit most of us have our tongues hanging out. I like to think this is a very overt manifestation of the consumer mentality. Make of that what you will, but what I’m making of it is we would like to see The Crucible without coming across the pond.

Do you think you could see your way…

I’m thrilled to announce that book two in my Love and Chocolate Series, Marry the Doctor is now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes.

Marry the Doctor

 

Since the death of his wife, Frank Brannigan has focused on raising his two daughters and furthering his medical practice, but he’s lonely. Maybe it’s time to get married again, but how?

Marry the Doctor is book two in the Love and Chocolate Series. Each book is a stand-alone sweet romance without cliff hangers.

For those of you who read Corporate Husband, I think you’ll enjoy Frank’s story.

Please let me know what you think of it – either through email Beverly.farr.author@gmail, or writing a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Thanks.

Beverly

People on the Cover

Behold a new cover for The M-Word.  Now I think people will know that it’s a romance.

Oh, and for those who are interested, the sequel to CORPORATE HUSBAND will be coming out soon — within two weeks.  It’s called MARRY THE DOCTOR.  I’m having a lot of fun with this one!

Corporate Husband

Praising Don Williams

Don Williams sings some of the most romantic country songs.  Here’s a youtube of him singing “I Believe in You” from 2013.  He still sounds great.  Some people might say this is a cheesy song, but I love it.  I believe in babies, too.

Flaws and all

The movie Dan in Real Life has a flawed hero.  I have watched this movie several times and there are a few scenes that make me cringe every time.  SPOILER.  When he tells his daughter that she can’t drive, I hear myself, worrying about my teenaged drivers.  When he says something rude at the table to embarrass his brother, I think of rude things I’ve said.  When he gets in a fender bender with a police officer and tries to make a joke, I remember my one and only traffic ticket.

This movie works because it shows a basically decent man, who is still grieving the death of his wife, trying to raise three daughters, and suddenly finds himself falling in love with his brother’s new girlfriend.  What a mess.

But there are moments that are very sweet, very romantic, and true to life.  As with most PG 13 films, there is something rude/crude/vulgar that I wish wasn’t there, but overall, I like this film.  One of my favorite parts is a conversation the mother, admirably played by Dianne Wiest has with her son Dan (Steve Carell).  Dan has just said something rude at the dinner table that embarrassed/shamed/humiliated his brother, and his mother makes him wash all the dinner dishes.  She knows and Dan knows that he was a jerk and doing all the dishes by himself is his punishment.  It’s one of those film moments that rings true.  Lovely.   I also like the bit with the teenager telling her dad he’s a love murderer.

It’s one of the movies that I wish I had written.

Howdy.  I hope your Valentine’s Day is a happy one.  In honor of the season,  I have a new short story:  RAINY DAY LOVE.  It’s free on Barnes and Noble, Itunes and Smashwords (click on words).  And now it’s free on Amazon, too.  Enjoy.

Rainy Day Love
