Here’s how I got the title of Little Town, Great Big Life: I am a fan of the country music duo Sugarland. On one of our long driving trips back home to Oklahoma from Alabama, I heard the Sugarland song, Everyday America. That’s just what I write! Oh, I fell in love with that song. Picture me, passenger seat of the pickup, holding the pretend microphone in front of my mouth and singing along with the chorus: “Little town and a great big life.” It just stuck in my head, and I played Sugarland during the time I wrote the book. I still love their music and am suddenly reminded to play it while writing.
A final giveaway for the final book of the Valentine series–Little Town, Great Big Life and a mass-market copy of Cold Tea on a Hot Day. Just leave a comment on this post. The winner will be chosen at random, and I’ll post the name on Monday.
(I tried to insert the YouTube video of the song, but nothing is happening. Great big life must go on…)
Enjoy your great big life today!
