A Wedding for the Single Dad by Meredith Webber

Will the GP and the vet…

Harlequin Mills & Boon Medical Romance Novels

Deadline

I’m on a major deadline right now. Writing my 30th book, juggling virtual school for my special needs son, juggling my late mother in law’s place, renovations and eye strain.

Fun times. Bleh.

And almost a year of this pandemic.

It can be hard to keep writing, to keep up with EVERYTHING. I tend to bury myself in a little hole. Or a nutshell and I’m always reminded of that bit from Austin Powers:

Also, my apologies for any spelling errors…I’ve got pretty bad eye strain. I’ve ordered some blue light glasses to help with my issue of eye strain. And tea bags. Cold, brewed tea bags on the eyes help me too.

Lots of tea drinking here this month! 😉

Funnily enough, that trick also works with styies.

Anyways, enough eye stuff!

So I’m chugging away at book 30 which is due very soon. It’s set on an Alaskan Cruise and features a doctor, who really is the heir to a Duke and he’s in hiding. The heroine is a runaway bride.

And since we can’t travel I can live vicariously through an Alaskan Cruise. 🙂

Maybe when this pandemic is all over I can FINALLY take an Alaskan Cruise, it’s been on my bucket list for years.

So I better get off. I’ve been on this computer far too long today.

My next release is coming out in April 2021.

Just one night…
…double the consequences!
Dr. Adeline Turner is horrified when Dr. Elias Garcia arrives as the chief rival for her dream fellowship. She could really do without their instant—and inconvenient—mutual attraction! Burned before, Adeline never mixes business with pleasure. Until Elias has Adeline breaking all her rules. But when she finds out that she’s pregnant with twins, they’re suddenly forced to rethink their dreams—together!

Virtual Tour of Jasper

Lockdown. Travel restrictions. It suuuuuuucks.

Next week I was supposed to be packing and heading to Texas for my first ever Romance Author Mastermind run by Skye Warren. I was SO stoked to travel to Houston. I always wanted to go to Texas and I was doubly excited to attend RAM, which I had heard amazing things about.

Then 2020 happened. Thankfully, RAM is going to be online and I get to attend my third virtual conference of the year.

It got me thinking about travelling though. I kind of miss it.

Even parts of Canada are restricted. Each province has their own particular rules, including mine (Ontario).

I was hoping this past summer I could’ve gone back out west and taken fresh pictures of one of my favourite National Parks, Jasper, which is also the setting of my newest release A Reunion, A Wedding, A Family.

I was hoping for fresh pictures so I could do this blog post, but we’re going to have to stick with pictures of my last trip there in 2012. And these pictures represent places my characters have been!

So this is heading away from Hinton, Alberta and into the park. I never did get a good gate shot of the park entrance, but we’re just past the entrance. Along the river bank is where Candice and Jimmy would have parties with their friends when they were younger and it was along one of these shoulders that Candice and Jimmy delivered that wee baby.

I just thought this was a funny shot of my kids when they were MUCH younger. That little girl is going off to University next year and possibly way up north, so I had to throw in a shot of them so young. My eldest boy is also taller than me at 6 feet and the youngest is a preteen now. Time flies, but this was a shot taken from downtown Jasper. It’s Jasper the bear!

Waiting at the lower station at Whistler’s to take the tram up over Jasper, Alberta.
The campground at the base of this tram way is where there was some “bear” disturbances that Candice and Jimmy had to attend to. Also where Candice sprained her ankle.

This is a view from the top of Whistlers Peak. It was my first time up this mountain.

This is heading down the Maligne Lake road. The first time Candice and Jimmy worked together was at the Maligne Canyon with a wayward rock climber!
This is also where I saw my first grizzly bear off to the side of the road!

These are the rapids from Medicine lake that flow through the canyon. Their cold, fast and dangerous.







This is Medicine Lake, which I mention in the book. It’s right before Maligne Lake. Medicine Lake actually isn’t a lake, but a river. And it fills up during the melt (we were there in early July so it was still draining). The idea is like it’s a bathtub that filled too quickly and is draining slowly.
I thought it was beautiful, but I would like to see it drained when it returns to just a small trickle of a river.

It’s off this road to and near Maligne Lake where Candice and Jimmy start their hike up into the mountains. I never did that hike when I was there in 2012 because I had small kids and I wasn’t physically able to do it (It takes several days). My goal is to go back one day and do it!

Making sure I have lots of bear spray!

We shall see!

I hope you enjoyed my small virtual tour of Jasper, Alberta. I have way more photos, but not enough space to share them all!

Keep safe and healthy! ❤

The Writing Life

Back into the swing…sort of? Burnout

So, September. It’s usually the time to get back on track, back on schedule and kids back to school.

This year…meh.

They’re back at school, but two are on hybrid with cohorts and the youngest goes every day, but wears a mask.

However, they seem to be adjusting well. *fingers crossed*

It’s been quiet since September 14th. It’s been nice. I took a virtual conference this summer called Strengths for Writers Strengths Fest. It was supposed to be in Bozeman, Montana, but because of COVID-19, it moved to virtual. I’ve taken the Write Better Faster classes before and I was totally stoked to attend the inaugural conference.

I’ve been struggling since 2018 with burnout. I’d get my feet back under me and something else would happen. More deaths, more sicknesses, issues.

It was a lot.

And then COVID hit…I hit burnout HARD. During the conference I was on a deadline, I was stressed and at my wits end. I was crying.

The conference was intense. My #1 strength and my #2 strength are in constant opposition, but the main thing is since 2018 I’ve lost my places to think and definitely with COVID and everyone at home…I had no quiet.

Like Winnie the Pooh, I need a thoughtful spot.

After I finished my deadline, revisions came, but in between deadline and revision due date I went to Neys. I went north and I could think again.

This is the stars we saw when we were up there. Ontario Parks has a better camera than me!

Of course, my thoughtful spot can’t be 17 hours from home.

I was feeling stressed, I went through 2 rounds of revisions on Twin Surprise for the Baby Doc (28th Book coming out sometime in 2021) and I was feeling just…done. Again.

Then I pulled open my notes and everything clicked into place. The kids went back to school. My husband went back to job sites, my Dad was settled and it was quiet. It’s been nice and I feel like I’m bouncing back as I head into writing Book #29

I feels good to be back on schedule.

And, as surreal as this whole year was, tomorrow night is the Harlequin Virtual Dance/Milestone Celebration. Today I was surprised that Harlequin sent me an arrangement of flowers. Celebrating my milestone, even though we’re apart. It was lovely.

And it’s a bit crazy to think my 25th released this year and I’m hurtling towards 30.

Heading North!

Happy Friday!

Today is a bit hectic as I pack up our trailer and we ready ourselves for a big camping trip 13 hours north of where I live up onto the Canadian Shield.

I think I did talk briefly about this last year when I posted pics of our trailer.

IMG_4918
Our trailer, last year at Inverhuron Provincial Park

I always wanted to go to Neys Provincial Park which is near Thunder Bay, Ontario.

neys

It’s not my first time to the lakehead of the great lakes, but it’s been about nine years.

I didn’t think we’d be able to make this work because of COVID-19, but Canada and in particularly Ontario, has worked hard. We did a trial run camp at a Provincial Park in July and the Ontario Parks system has done an amazing job of keep the parks clean and safe.

The number of operating campsites has been reduced, so less campers.

There are no showers open, so they can focus all cleaning on the bathrooms.

So once we did that trial run in July, we felt safe driving north to take part in our week long vacation on the shores of Lake Superior.

We have masks, hand sanitizer and except for bathrooms, we’re self contained.

The only thing I won’t have is cell service (it’s kind of sketchy up there). I’ll be disconnected and I’m really looking forward to it.

Things I want to see:

Moose: I have not seen a wild moose. I have spent many years up north and they continue to elude me. I’ve seen every other big game animal in the wild, but no moose. So fingers crossed.

River Otter: I’m hoping I spy these guys as they swim up the Pic River into Lake Superior.

Pereseid Meteor Shower: It’ll be picking the nights we’re up there and it’s pretty dark in northern Ontario and we’re in a dark night preserve. Fingers crossed for clear nights.

I’m never more at peace, than when I’m north. My Dad is from up here (you can’t actually see his home town because it’s still a bit further north), but this is where my roots are from. I’m very glad to be going back, even for a short time.

So that’s what I’ll be up to this week. I hope you all have a great week and I’ll “see” you when I get back. That’s if the bears or the black flies don’t carry me off! 😉

Screen Shot 2020-08-07 at 1.27.39 PM
Yes. It’s way faster to go through Michigan from my city, but the borders are still closed, so we take the northern routes around the lakes. It takes 2-3 days to get out of Ontario and head west.

I’ll leave you with a Canadian folk classic! xo
