Dance Like a Chicken Day by Merrillee Whren

These quirky holidays are fun to talk about. Who knew there was a special day to celebrate this crazy dance, which is often part of the dancing at a wedding reception?

I love to include weddings in my books. In my latest book, HOMECOMING BLESSINGS, there are two weddings. The heroine's father, who has been a widower for years, gets married. This book was originally published over 10 years ago by Steeple Hill Books, which is now known as Harlequin Love Inspired. As I updated the book for reissue, I decided to add an epilogue to the story that included the wedding of the hero and heroine, since this is the last book in the Dalton Brothers series.

I also added a connection to my previous series about the little fictional town of Kellersburg, located in southwest Ohio. The new connection is Caroline Keller, the sister of Nathan Keller, the hero of Hometown Dad, the third book in the Kellersburg series. I'll be adding to the Kellersburg series with Caroline's story. How is Caroline connected to Homecoming Blessings? She is a friend of Ashley Hiatt, the heroine of Homecoming Blessings.

  1. I have not done the chicken dance but my daughter's have. I don't mind two series intertwined as long as I have a short explanation. I already have the ebook.

  2. I've never done it, but I'll never forget the Mother's Day party each of my two boys' pre-k classes did. Both years they did the chicken dance. It was hilarious. My boys are 23 and 21 now.

  4. I haven't done the chicken dance anywhere in public, and the world is a better place for it. Haha - I am NOT coordinated.

  5. The global fitness industry is greatly indebted to a man who invented the Lifecycle exercise bike, the legendary equipment that foretells the story of today's fitness consciousness around the world. It was Dr. Keene P. Dimick who designed the lifecycle exercise bike in early sixties for own fitness purpose. Learn Belly Dancing Online
