What is the Sweet Street Team?

A STREET TEAM is a group of readers who enjoy reading AND REVIEWING an author's books. Usually the author sends the reader/reviewer an ARC, an Advanced Reading Copy (almost always an ebook copy). This way the reviewer can read and review the new book and be prepared to leave a review when the book debuts.

You'll notice that above is a tab labeled: "Sweet Street Team." Click it and read all that you need to know about this. Our Sweet Street Team meets on Facebook. However, if you aren't on Facebook, you can leave your name and email here in a comments. And one of our authors will contact you.

To keep away spammers who comb the net for email addresses, write it like this username(at)emailprovider(dot)com Example:

That is my address of course. '-) 

My alternate one is HA HA HA :-)

Anyway why not look into joining our Sweet Street Team?--Lyn Cote

Happy Retirement To Me by Laura Scott

I'm officially a full time author!

Laura Scott here celebrating my retirement from Froedtert Hospital where I worked for 38 years! Many of you know I'm a Registered Nurse and worked in Critical Care which has been a rewarding and challenging profession.

But my love of writing could not be ignored and now that both of my kids have moved out of the house, it's time for me to fulfill my dream of being a full time author.

I feel great, yet there is still this strange bit of apprehension. It's hard to give up one career, even though I have another equally rewarding career to replace it. 

Could be that giving up my biweekly paycheck is also causing some internal stress, haha.

I truly believe God has put me on this path for a reason. Thanks for taking the time to celebrate with me, and I'd love to hear any advice you have to offer.  Have some tips or tricks? Tell me what worked and didn't work for you. 

Thanks and God bless all the nurses who are still working....

Smoothie Season! by @MagdalenaScott

I was probably a late adopter of the smoothie. I've only been making them for a few years. But this summer I'm having one for supper nearly every evening. It's a tasty, healthful, and filling meal if I do it right. 

In recent months, I learned a couple of new-to-me things about preparing my smoothie. 

One is that if you're going to include oats, be sure to soak them for at least eight hours. I soak mine in 1% cow's milk mixed with nonfat Greek yogurt. After all that lovely soaking, the oats are delightfully creamy.

The other game-changer for me was the addition of an ingredient that makes the smoothie so…um…smooth. 

Also beautifully thick and rich and fantabulous.

It's an ingredient I love but hadn't used in a sweet concoction.

Have you already guessed it?

An avocado. YUM.

Any time I eat an avocado on its own, it seems I'm doing something decadent. To me, it's almost like eating butter.

Not that I've ever eaten butter on its own…okay, yes I have. It's a very bad idea. Do NOT eat a pat of butter as a snack! *Sigh*

Oops. Sorry. Back to the smoothie.

My evening smoothie varies. These days I try to space out my grocery trips, preferably making the trek every two weeks or so. Toward the end of that time, the avocados are gone. Which just makes me love them more once they're back in my fridge, of course.

Last summer I used raw spinach in smoothies quite often, and sometimes a teaspoon or so of flaxmeal. 

I almost always include frozen organic blueberries. They're so beautiful, aren't they?

Frozen banana halves are also a frequent ingredient. Last week I sliced and froze some peaches. 

And I usually add a drop or two of vanilla extract or almond extract, just because.

Since I always have fruit in the smoothie, I seldom add any sweetener. Back in my spinach days (last summer), I often added a teaspoonful or so of local honey.

Do you like smoothies? What are your favorite ingredients?

In my book, Midnight in Legend, TN, the heroine owns a swanky coffee and crafts shop. To celebrate a new town festival, she creates a special coffee drink (yes, I know, not a smoothie). The result, Legend by Starlight, is served in a stemmed mug similar to the one pictured here.

Grab your copy of Midnight in Legend, TN FREE!

Happy reading - and happy smoothie-ing.

Christmas in July!

It's hot outside. Many of us are still locked in. Chaos reigns. Let's all escape to Christmas!

Why not? Who couldn't use a flash of cool air; a warm, connected feeling; a bright greeting wishing us happiness in the season?

At the Aylworth household, Christmas is the one holiday when we go all-out. The tree goes up early, usually with many small hands to help decorate and mommies to make sure the breakable items and candy canes are out of their reach.

We bring out the nativity scenes collected over the years. My favorites are the one from Bolivia that shows the Holy Family as Aymara natives and the one from the Navajo Nation that portrays indigenous people from many southwestern nations in a Hopi pueblo. 

When all the decorating is done and preparations are made, we have cinnamon rolls and spiced apple juice while we open gifts and watch the delight of the little ones when they open theirs. Then we gather around a loaded table and all cooks contribute their own family favorites. We give thanks for our bounty.

Christmas is also a blessed time when we think of blessing others. Charitable organizations do much of their fund-raising during this season. People leave tips for newspaper and mail carriers. We think of others.

To bring a bit of holiday escape into the heat of summer, I've teamed with a number of author friends. "Christmas in July" is happening! From now through July 31, find sale prices on  a basketful of sweet and inspirational Christmas romances. My book, Winter Skye, is featured, now on sale for only 99 cents. Find it here:
May Christmas reads or happy thoughts bring joy to you while we all outlast our current circumstance. Merry Christmas in the summer, my friends.

Susan Aylworth is the author of 20 novels. Her newest series, "Seasons of Destiny," explores romance in every season of the year in the small, former Gold Rush town of Destiny, California, nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills.  Paris in the Springtime, Sunny's Summer,  Amber in Autumn, and Winter Skye are all available now in e-book and paperback. She is releasing new editions of her beloved Rainbow Rock Romances and beginning a  "Daughters of Destiny" series featuring five sisters-cousins who sing together, complete with plenty of interesting song lyrics. Look for them in the coming months along with a Christmas novella coming in October.

What Happened was...FUN FRIDAY! by Pat Simmons

Have you ever heard the response to a question start off with, “What happened was…” and a long story followed? LOL. Yep, it’s one of those posts—an edited edition. 

It’s almost August, and nobody imagined COVID-19 would still govern our lives. Back in May, we were three months into the pandemic, and Zoom became the mode of communication. 

A fellow author decided to test Zoom in one of our Facebook groups, Sisters of Faith Books, to see if it would be user friendly to play a virtual Book Bingo game.
What we didn’t know was once we went live during the test, friends commented. “Hey”, “We see you”, “What y’all doing?”

We explained we were testing and decided to promote the book bingo. The rest is history.
Since early May, Christian Regency author Vanessa Riley (A Duke, The Lady, and A Baby), and Angela Andersen (Founder of Angela Andersen Presents/Literary Coach/Book Reviewer/Event Planner/Literary Influencer)—a mouthful—and  I have been popping into the Sisters of Faith Books Facebook page every Friday for about 30 to 40 minutes to talk about—nothing. 

We read excerpts from other Christian Authors of Color books, embellish scenes and/or dialogue and dance to our intro music. Our reach and views are climbing and we’re still trying to figure out why. Who knew people from across the world would set their alerts to witness our zany wit?

We don’t know how long the “show” will last, but if it’s helping to make someone’s day brighter every week, we’re glad to oblige.

There is no script, a theme is usually concocted at the last minute. Join us every Friday at Noon EDT for fun. Today, we’re going “book nerd” live.

In other news, I’m excited about my upcoming release HERE FOR YOU. Six weeks and counting!!!!—Read an excerpt. Check out the pre-release reviews on Netgalley. As always, I’m thankful for God’s inspiration and reader support.

Pets with Disabilities - Laura Ashwood

Did you know pets can have disabilities too, or special needs? There are a lot of different reasons a pet could have a special need. Whether it's allergies, vision or hearing impairment, physical disabilities, senior pets that need extra care, chronic or terminal illnesses, or neurological issues like degenerative myelopathy and epilepsy. And those are just a few.

I've had several special needs pets in my life. I've had a senior rescue dog with advanced Lyme's disease, a rescue dog that developed a brain tumor, and now I've got a dog with epilepsy. I'm not sure what the odds are of ending up with three special needs dogs, but I've learned a lot from each one.

My current special needs dog is a four year old chihuahua mix named Gus. If you follow me on social media, you are already familiar with him. He's quite a ham. And he's my constant companion. One big perk that has come out of the COVID pandemic is that I am still in work from home status with my day job. So when Gus had a 10+ minute seizure, I was here and able to get him to the vet right away. It saved his life. I shudder to think what would have happened to him if I was at the office and he was home alone.

Having a special needs dog requires a little more planning than with a regular dog. It's harder to kennel a dog (or cat) with special needs - we don't kennel our dogs, but I know a lot of people that do. Because he has to take his seizure medication on a schedule and the window is only an hour on either side of that time, we plan our schedule so he's either with us or we wait until he has his meds before we go.

Other animals with special needs might just need extra care to help them navigate stairs or around furniture in a room. Our senior dog had advanced Lyme disease when we got him from the rescue. We had to help him up the steps most of the time, especially if he was particularly active - he always crashed after. I've also seen special "wheels" for dogs with spinal cord injuries or missing limbs. It's amazing how adaptable they are.

I try to write an animal character into each of my books. My first book, Romancing the Royal, features a spoiled royal corgi. My second book, A Little Something Sweet, features a kitten that was found in a dumpster, and I'm writing a special needs dog character into one of the books I have coming out this fall.

Do you like books with animal characters as part of the story line? Would you consider adopting, or do you have a pet with special needs? I'd love to hear about it.

Until next month,
xo Laura & Gus


I've got a new release this month!

Look to the Stars by Janice Lynn

As with many authors, I'm a dreamer. There's few things I find more relaxing then snuggling up on a blanket outdoors and staring up at the night sky.  I love looking at the stars, watching for meteorites, and seeing how the moon casts it's glow over the world around me. I find it humbling when I think how vast the universe is around me.

Today marks the anniversary of a momentous event. On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 lifted off earth. On July 20th, the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle landed on the moon and on July 21, 1969, Neil Armstrong left the module and was the first man to step on the moon. Soon after Buzz Aldrin joined him and they collected samples to bring back to earth. They spent a total of twenty-one hours and thirty-six minutes on the moon's surface during Apollo 11's nine day

mission (lift off on July 16 & landed back on earth on July 24). It boggles my mind to think how Commander Armstrong left his mark on the moon's surface with that infamous boot footprint.

wasn't around yet to have gotten to watch live footage of Apollo 11 when Neil Armstrong made that famous first step, but did watch live television footage of when the Challenger launched and exploded in 1986.  The Challenger is vividly imprinted upon my mind and heart, probably because that launch felt special because teacher Christa McAuliffe was on board. Regardless, modern day space launches fascinate me. There's something exciting about knowing history is being made with each launch and that advances are being made, even as mistakes occur.

The idea of someday traveling through space being a common event seems surreal, and yet, it's a goal mankind strives for and seems to be making more and more progress toward. As mentioned, I love to look up at the stars, but I'm not sure I'd ever choose to space travel. What about you? Are you more a look up at the stars kind of person or do you long to travel through them?

USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling author JANICE LYNN lives in Tennessee with her Prince Charming, their kids who think they're all royalty, her vivid imagination, an adorable Maltese named Halo who's the true princess of the house, and bunches of unnamed dust bunnies that moved in after Janice started her writing career. In addition to writing romance, Janice is a nurse practitioner, a quilter, an exercise queen, a military mama, and an avid supporter of the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Just kidding on the exercise queen.   WRAPPED UP IN CHRISTMAS available at AMAZON Barnes & Noble WALMART

The Start of Something Wonderful

Sweet Romance Reads welcomes our newest member
Merri Maywether!

This could be the start of something wonderful! I didn't realize how frequently I said that in my stories until I starting making memes for my characters.

The situation was the same.  A mentor-type character would buddy up with the hesitant female protagonist and say something along the lines of, "I know this is scary. But let's look at it differently. This could be the start of something wonderful." Of course, the conflicts made it look like the mentor character may have missed the mark. But the happily ever after validated the wisdom. 

What I love about the start of "something wonderful" is it happens all the time.  And it starts with a small moment.  My new beginning started with baking. After five years of failures, I decided it was time to make a homemade cinnamon roll that couldn't be used as a weapon. This meant going to Pinterest and getting help from the experts.  

One pin led the next. The bunny trail took me to a Sweet Romance Readers group. The one thing I love more than homemade cinnamon rolls is reading sweet romance books. 

In 2019, I declared 2020 was going to be a good year. With that in mind, I asked if I could join the group. You know, sit at their lunch table and listen to what they had to say. This was a big deal for me. These authors had written books that I read and loved. 

I expected a polite maybe. 

image of cinnamon rolls
What I received nothing short of wonderful. The day after my request, my inbox was full of notes.  Authors who had written stories that touched my heart took a minute to say hello and welcome to the table.   Which I loved. What happened next floored me. They asked me to share something about myself. This was more than looking into their world and sharing them. They were interested in my story,  too.

My something wonderful is two-fold.  I have a cadre of friends who enjoy the sweet romance genre as much as I do, and  I finally learned how to make homemade edible cinnamon rolls.

So, keep an eye out for wonderful moments. They come when you least expect it in the most unusual ways.  πŸͺ

I'll close here wishing you warm, sweet tea on the porch summer days. 

Christmas Wishes book cover
Is Susan Waters ready to experience the Paradise Hills magic?
When Susan makes a wish for Santa to bring her a special present, she sets off a chain of events she never expected. She has helped other people find their true love. It only makes sense that her friends would try to repay the kindness. There is one little hitch to their plans. They're trying to match her with Hunter Lane. The same Hunter Lane she'd rather avoid for reasons she'd rather not disclose.
Hunter is the oldest of the Lane brothers and the only one of them who is single. When Hunter sees Susan, he knows there's something special about her. As he gets to know her, Hunter learns two things. They have a shared past, and he sees Susan in his future.
When Susan finds herself in a situation that demands Hunter's help, they discover it takes more than a wish to hold on to love.
Christmas Wishes is available for 99¢ at Amazon and Kobo

When I write my romance novels, the characters are inspired by the people I see on a day to day basis. Up here in what I like to call the far, far north, people work hard, live fiercely, and love knowing that they have a community behind them.

When her mother is diagnosed with cancer, Megan doesn’t hesitate to return to the town that holds so many memories. Thank goodness the man that destroyed her dreams moved to California.

Ideas for your Next Staycation from Kimberly Rose Johnson

If you're anything like me you are looking for local things to do this summer. I am fortunate to live less than two hours from the coast, the mountains, multiple lakes, parks, and two large cites.
Since I don't know anything about where you live, I'm going to use my area to make suggestions. I hope you are able to adapt a couple suggestions to where you live.

  • Go for a picnic at a lake or even in your own backyard.
  • Take a bike ride alone paved trails or go or a mountain bike ride.
  • If you have a swimming pool, plan a day outdoors. Suggested ideas: swim, read, yoga, play water games, picnic. The key is to make it special. 
  • Take a walk through a park you don't often go to.
  • Go hiking.
  • Have a socially distanced ice cream party, then hang a sheet on the side of your house and watch a movie outdoors--I have a scene like this in A Waltz for Amber.
  • A picture scavenger hunt. Come up with a list of things to find, then take a picture of the item when you find it. The first one to have a picture of everything wins.
  • A campout in your backyard. 
What other ideas can you come up with? Have you taken a staycation? What did you do?

I mentioned my book A Waltz for Amber which gave me an idea to offer you a special deal. I've complied this book along with the rest of the books in the series into one collection titled Melodies of Love
For a very limited time you can pick it up for only 99¢. 
It's only available at Amazon.

Friendship, memories and wishes are powerful things and in the small town of Snowflake, Colorado they combine to form a memorial to a lost friend. Following her death, Charity Hart left six of her close high school friends, including Caro Price, fifteen hundred dollars each and an assignment to use that money to grant someone else’s secret wish by Christmas. 

Temporarily back in Snowflake to help her beloved grandmother recover from an illness, nurse practitioner Caro is on the hunt for a recipient for her secret angel gift. A chance encounter in a specialty store focuses Caro’s interest on a red-headed little girl fascinated by a nativity scene. 

Caro’s grandmother has matchmaking on her mind as she pushes Caro and her neighbor, Simon Novak, together. It turns out that Simon coaches the little redhead’s older brother at the high school. With Simon’s help, Caro tries to learn more about the family and it quickly becomes apparent that the widowed mother and her two children are struggling financially. But is there more going on than meets the eye, for Caro sees flashes of fear in their eyes. 

Christmas is the season of wishes, and Caro, with God's guidance, is determined to make one little girl’s dream a reality! And, maybe, just maybe, fulfill a dream of her own!
