I can’t believe we’re down to the last two days of Hot Guys in Kilts Week! The Clan MacGregor Book 2, Taken by the Highland Wolf will be out in two weeks. It’s so hard to believe!

Since we’re almost at the end, I thought we should get in as many as possible today. Have fun with your 3 for 1!

  

Well it’s Day 2 of Hot Guys in Kilts Week here at Stephanie Marks Books and I’m already getting requests for specific sexy Scots that people would like to see featured. I want you to know that your pleas have been heard.

So while I wait for this next episode of Outlander to load, I bring you the next hot guy in a kilt!

  

Since the months of May-July are all about The Clan MacGregor series around here, I’ve decided to call it #HighlanderSeason. Over the next two months we are going to enjoy all of the fun and fine flavors that Scotland has to offer. 

And yes, I do mean that we are going to be checking out a lot of hot guys.

This week I bring you, Hot Guys in Kilts! Every day I will be posting a picture of, well, a hot guy in a kilt! Enjoy!

So I am three quarters of the way through writing my latest book, Taken by the Highland Wolf, and I feel like things are coming along quite well. You know, until I have those moments of blind panic. Of course any writer can tell you that the feeling of zen you get when things are going well basically goes up in smoke at the first hint of writer’s block. That’s when the hyperventilating sets in. 

 The other night I was chatting with my good friend Amri Ackers about starting new projects. The excitement, the hope, the abject terror. All you can do is try to write the best story you can and then send your sweet baby off into the world, praying the whole time that people will want to be its friend.

I came across this gif and it pretty much completely sums up the emotional roller coaster that happens with every new book idea when you sit down to write it.

The real trick is figuring out how to get that voice to shut up long enough for you to get the story written. I’d like to believe the day will come when I will have learned how to silence that voice once and for all. But until that day comes, it’s all about forging ahead.

I can’t believe that I haven’t done a Writer Radio post for this song yet. I first heard it a few months ago and have been a bit obsessed ever since. I wasn’t sure I actually liked it at first but the more I listened the more it got stuck in my head. Now I can be heard singing along to it at the top of my lungs.

This has become one of my go to songs to play right when I wake up and I’m struggling to get out of bed. It totally energizes me for the day.
