A huge THANK YOU tofor hosting this stop on my “around the world in thirty days” blog tour. Okay, I’m not going around the world but my head is spinning! The early reviews for Texas Two Step are starting to hit the internet and so far, so good.
As I was planning what to do for the release of Texas Two Step, I realized that while I knew my hero (Mitch Landry) and heroine’s (Olivia Montgomery) dating history as well as I know my own, readers are dropped into their lives ten years after they meet and six years after their torrid love affair goes awry.
But Mitch and Olivia have such a wonderful three years before fate decides to play havoc on them. And you know what happens when fate steps in, right? All those lovely plans go out with today’s trash. As the authors here can attest, frontloading a book with a couple’s backstory is a deadly no-no. Right? But for those readers who enjoy the early days of a romance, I wrote a prequel for Texas Two Step, available only during this tour.
The Meeting-Part Three. If you missed parts one and/or two of The Meeting, there will be links to these if you follow today’s link.’s episode is
In part three of The Meeting, Mitch signals his friend away from Olivia, establishing his claim by placing his hand on Olivia’s shoulder and leaving it there through introductions. His friend, Wes, gets the “signal” and moves on, leaving Olivia to Mitch.
Today I want to talk about male non-verbal marking signals and non-verbal communication. I confess, can sometimes go right over my head, especially the non-verbal signals men give. Does where a man sits at a table indicate his attraction (or lack of) to his date? What message does calling the morning after meeting a girl give versus waiting a couple of days? Does Mitch resting his hand on Olivia’s shoulder signal (for you) a “hands off” to his friend? An arm slung around her shoulders or clasping her hand while it’s draped through his arm would be obvious signals but what about subtle ones. What ways have you observed men waving other men off “their” gal? What non-verbal signals have you observed men use?
