Dessert: A Sweet Concept

Today, I blogged over on eHarlequin about the concept of dessert as a motivator to get work done. Considering I work for myself and I'm probably the easiest boss eva, I need SOMETHING to make myself keep on writing on the days when the sun is shining. To the left there is the dessert that kept my butt in the chair yesterday--a Mixed Berry Pavlova I had made for company a couple days prior (there was like, no lie, two tablespoons left over, but being a dessert freak, I saved all two tablespoons for later, LOL). So check out the post, and then have a little chocolate!

What Happened to August?

I have no idea where this month went (well, actually I do. Many things, none of them weddings, took place and the month just disappeared before I even knew it). I haven't even been to a store to see if my book is on the shelves, but my relatives and friends tell me that it is, so...here's the cover.

I have to say that I loved this book and I feared it, too. It deals with a sensitive subject and I really wasn't sure that I was capable of giving it everything that it needed. But in the end, I just...put my heart into it and wrote the book that my characters demanded I write. I only hope that it touches a few hearts along the way.

Have a wonderful last week in August! (I hope your month didn't fly by as quickly as mine seemed to do).

Walk down the aisle...

Not so much.

Check out this wedding's party entrance into the church. Very cool and so much fun.

Thanks to Fiona Harper who Tweeted the link!

What do you think? Fun or not traditional enough?

Bouquet Toss

When I saw this LOLcat pic at one of my fave sites icanhascheeseburger.com, I immediately thought about the my book for the Wedding Planners series, SOS Marry Me, as well as my first Silhouette Romance, If the Ring Fits.... Both books end with a bouquet toss though neither bridesmaid was trying this hard to catch it. In fact, neither wanted to catch the bouquet!

I caught the bouquet at a wedding and was the next to get married, but then again it could be all coincidental! Do you think there's anything to the legend/superstition about catching the wedding bouquet or garter?

We're glad to be back at The Wedding Planners to share our news and other things we find that are wedding related. If you or anyone else you know are planning a wedding or have recently gotten married and would like to guest blog about your experience or share a helpful hint to others out there, just leave a comment with your email and we'll get in touch with you!

Hope you're enjoying your summer and getting lots of reading in, too!

We're Back!

We've decided to reopen The Wedding Planners Blog to share news with you (and we've missed getting to connect with all of you)! I'll start out with some good news I received. My book, Her Millionaire, His Miracle just won the Bookseller's Best award! I'm very excited, to say the least.

I hope you're all having a great summer! Check back here for more news of upcoming books (and other things) in the weeks ahead.

(Oh, and hop on over to my website at www.myrnamackenzie.com. I have a contest running, and it ends August 2nd, so there's still time to enter. (Or, if you leave a comment here, I'll automatically enter you). The prize is a book and a bracelet from Spokespeople at Etsy.

Best Wishes!
