A Kiss To Build a SCENE On Lineup + a Poem :-)

Anyone still swooning from last week? I am – and boy has it been a fun. But don’t sigh your last. There are still two beautiful weeks of lip-locking action going on right here, and I have a wonderful lineup to prove it 🙂

Liz Curtis Higgs

Erica Vetsche

Janet Dean

Margaret Daley

Denise Hunter

And as a special treat – Another Romantic poem 😉

Hopeless Romantic

I’m a hopeless romantic. I will take no disguise.

I admit getting lost in some make-believe eyes.

I often quote prose to invisible men,

And am found in odd places with paper and pen.

I’m a hopeless romantic. I confess with a grin.

Though I know my profession some regard as a sin.

I enjoy taking walks in the springtime at night

And find the moon’s glow an inspiring delight.

I’m a hopeless romantic, with no shame I admit.

For the practical thinker I care not a wit.

My world is alight with my rose-colored glasses

And I love getting lost in a book as time passes.

I’m a hopeless romantic. Fairytales do come true.

Any storm brings adventure from a new point of view.

And the sweet kiss of love can awake hearts of stone.

In truth, we romantics are never alone.

I’m a hopeless romantic. I confess it is true.

From all of my options, I prefer this world view.

And if forced I can tell fact and fiction a part,

But a hopeless romantic is the beat of my heart.

  1. PEPPER!!! What a GREAT poem!! And I echo its beautiful sentiments to the nth degree!!

    And what a lineup you have this week, girl, kicking off with one of my top-two FAVS in Christian romance — Liz Curtis Higgs!!! Whoo-eee, girl, can’t wait for that one!! Then you move on to a star-shine newcomer like Erica Vetsche who I am DYING to read, followed by one of my dearest friends who beats me out at contests WAY more than I like, Janet Dean, to another good friend and fabulous writer, Margaret Daly, and then ending up with more star power in the ever-popular Denise Hunter!!! Guess where I’m going to be spending a lot of MY time this week????

    Can’t wait!!



    1. Where there is romance…there is Julie. Please oh please stop by and revel in the lovely moments. I’m excited about this week and the next. TWO MORE WEEKS!! My hearts all aflutter 😉


  2. Sherrinda,
    You are super sweet. I think we have the makings of a beautiful friendship. Both pastor’s wives, both writers, both a little too crazy for most typical people. What a great combo 😉
