While searching for something interesting to share today I stumbled upon the fact that it is National Tartan Day. What does that have to do with writing? Well,inspiration, for one thing 🙂
Part of indie writing is finding the perfect cover…we have done a lot of research and women readers seem to love the male chest. This requires hours sometimes of studying muscular chests–the things a writer must do in order to know her market! I even found this guy wandering the beach…I see a new By the Sea book coming 😉
Just so this post isn’t all eye candy, here is a snippet from the Internet on National Tartan Day:
On March 20, 1998, the United States Senate passed Resolution 155 that designated April 6th of each year as National Tartan Day to recognize Scottish Americans and their achievements and contributions to the United States. On March 9, 2005, the House passed Resolution 41 and by Presidential Proclamation, it was signed by President George W. Bush on April 4, 2008.
On this day in 1320, Scot’s signed the Declaration of Arbroath, formally declaring their independence from England. For more information visit www.americanscottishfoundation.com.
It is also National Caramel Corn day–but that isn’t so fun look at lol. Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
Oh, and I am celebrating Billionaire’s Brother By the Sea Book #15 in the By the Sea series. Mark Livingston is a bad ass who meets his match in Madeleine Kohl–all undercover, lol. Note the chest???
I’m off to work…beach kilts. Oh yeah!
