How Canadian Writers Stay Warm

  Posted by Jean Oram , 18 January 2018 · 60 views

No, this isn’t the headline for a funny meme–but it could be. Today, we’re talking Canada, eh? Like, winter in the Great White North. If you’re going to Timmy’s for a double-double make sure you plug in the car. No, it’s not electric. You’re plugging in a heater attached the engine that will warm the oil so the engine can turn over in cold weather. (Oil becomes very thick when cold!) And if you’re going tobogganing wear your toque! (Sledding–wooly hat.)
[b]All righty then. So how do we writers stay warm when the outside world hurts our faces because it’s sooooo cold out?[/b]

[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/JeanOram.jpg"][img]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/JeanOram.jpg[/img][/url]There are a ton of ways to stay warm, but the most curious to me are our hands. I thought I was the only one with the issue of[b] keeping my hands warm[/b] while typing for hours. It turns out I am not alone. While my hand warmers aren’t the most glamourous (they’re well-used one-dollar stretchies with the fingers cut off), they do the trick.
If you’re from a milder climate you’re likely wondering why I don’t simply turn up the heat. You see, here’s the odd thing…even when the thermostat in the house says it’s room temperature, when it’s -30 C (-22F) or colder outside and especially if there’s a windchill taking it to -48C (-54F) or so, the house (as wonderfully sealed as it is) ends up with a bit of a chill to it. The outer doors start to freeze shut, ice builds up on the inside of the windows… and other crazy stuff like that.
In our first house–a house built during the war (WWII)–if we left the kitchen cupboard doors closed the food inside froze! And I tell ya, having a closet that shared two outer walls ensured I took my clothes out way before I wanted to put them on. They were so shockingly cold!
My current home is much, much warmer than that one, but I do still get a chill in the winter months from time to time and especially if I have a deadline and find myself typing a ton (and not moving around as much as usual). When that happens I’m prepared! I’ll stick hand warmer packets under the glove’s fabric so I have nice and toasty heat warming me up. Ahhhh. Heaven! I have also been known to ask the dog to sleep across my wool-sock clad feet.
Here are some tidbits from some of my favourite Canadian romance writing buddies who share the same cold snaps I do. Check them out!
[b]Author Katie O’Connor[/b]

[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/KatieOConnor.jpg"][img]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/KatieOConnor.jpg[/img][/url]I love these so much! They’re gorgeous. Katie made these herself–she’s a multi-talented woman!
How Katie stays warm:[quote]
Winter is brutal here in Canada. I keep my hands covered when I write or my fingers seize up. Hot tea, hot toddies, and a warm fireplace are necessities.[/quote]You can find more about Katie and her romances [url="https://www.amazon.com/Katie-OConnor/e/B007GZT1IO/?tag=jeaora-20"]on Amazon.[/url]
[b]Roxy Buroughs[/b]

Roxy got these are a gift and they look so soft and warm![quote]
I LOVE them. Cute and cozy. I use them during the winter months. Always with matching nail polish, of course. Great for combating the chill.
I warm up with homemade soups, too. But don’t try to match my nail polish to those.[/quote](Have I ever mentioned we writers tend to be a fun and sassy bunch?)
Check out Roxy’s website for her latest romances: [url="http://www.roxyboroughs.com"]www.roxyboroughs.com[/url]
[b]Win Day[/b]
[quote]
I cheat a lot and spend as much of the winter as possible somewhere else.
When I’m writing in Canada, though, it’s not my hands that get cold. I have lousy circulation in my legs and feet. And I’m short. So I have a footstool with a built-in heater and fan! And a beautiful lap robe that a weaver friend made for me.[/quote]I need a stool like that! It sounds amazing as I write on the couch in the midst of the family chaos and a stool would be lovely seeing as my feet can’t touch the floor. And the heater? Bliss!
[url="https://www.kobo.com/ca/en/search?query=Win%20Day&amp;fcsearchfield=Author"]You can find Win’s books on Kobo and other retailers.[/url]
[b]A.M. Westerling[/b]

[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/AMWesterling.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/AMWesterling.jpg[/url]A.M.’s wooly warmer was also a gift.
How does this writer stay warm?[quote]
I try to dress appropriately, which means layers. Sometimes lots of layers. And a hot beverage is always good too!

[b]Jan O’Hara[/b]

[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/JanOHara.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/JanOHara.jpg[/url]How does Jan stay warm?[quote]
My current method for staying warm comes with a hefty dose of guilt. I “borrowed” [the cup] from my husband, because it makes me laugh.
(It shapes perfectly to my lips, not my husband’s.)[/quote]This is such a fun mug. I love it!
[url="http://janohara.net/"]Pop by Jan’s website for more fun and books![/url]
[b]Jenna Howard[/b]
[quote]
I have some fingerless gloves I crocheted and a mug and tea addiction that just won’t slow down.[/quote]We then went down a rabbit hole about all the great cups they have at Chapters (a bookstore in Canada where I *may* have spent a little bit on cups for myself as well as reader gifts for the New Year! They have awesome cups and [url="http://www.facebook.com/groups/jeanoramfans"]I’ll be giving one away in my fan group on Facebook. Join the Jeanster family if you haven’t already![/url]).
You can [url="https://www.facebook.com/AuthorJennaHoward/?timeline_context_item_type=intro_card_work&amp;timeline_context_item_source=728047183&amp;pnref=lhc"]like Jenna Howard’s page on Facebook[/url] as well as find out more over there about her latest steamy romance.
[b]Brenda Sinclair[/b]

[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/BrendaSinclair-1.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/BrendaSinclair-1.jpg[/url]Brenda claims, as I do about my own talents, that we’re not talented enough to make these amazing hand warmers on our own. But she loves these ones she bought at local craft sale.
Her stay-warm must-haves also include:[quote]
…fuzzy warm socks and a hot Carmel Drizzle coffee.[/quote]Yum!
[url="https://www.brendasinclairauthor.com"]Pop by Brenda’s website for a full list of her books.[/url]
[b]Suzanne Stengl[/b]

[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/SuzanneStengl.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/SuzanneStengl.jpg[/url]And then because there is a monkey in every group (it’s usually me!), Suzanne Stengl sent me this picture of…[quote]
My good ole Canadian hand warmers.[/quote]I’m pretty sure she’s not typing in those, but she will indeed be warm while skiing.
I like the skis Suzanne!
[url="https://www.suzannestengl.com/"]You can find out about the whimsical Suzanne on her website.[/url]
Thanks for hanging out with us. I hope you’ve been staying warm this winter–and if you’re a reader south of the equator I hope you’re not [i]too[/i] warm!
Take care and thanks for reading.

<p>I’m excited about this book as the idea of accidentally marrying someone tickles me to no end! (And then, of course, having these characters fall in love before they can separate is even better!)</p>
<p>This is a snippet from Burke Carver’s scene–he is sooooo not into marriage. And guess what? He and Jill accidentally got married.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>SNEAK PEEK FROM ACCIDENTALLY MARRIED<br />* * *<br />The stress had to be getting to him. His quest for market expansion being blocked by Jill and her inability to immediately free up his credit was making him twitch. His team had invested heavily in creating valuable momentum and now it would be all for nothing. Lost.</p>
<p>He had to find the answer and it was most definitely not marriage. That was never the answer. Women left. And when they did, they had a tendency to take down as much around them like an angry kitten with a vendetta against draperies and glass vases. Absolute and total destruction.</p>
<p>What had he been thinking uttering “I do?”</p>

<p><a href="[url="https://www.goodreads.com/user_challenges/7054396"]https://www.goodreads.com/user_challenges/7054396[/url]">I challenged myself to read 50 books.</a> I read 15 for myself. (I don’t count kids books.) And yes, I am embarassed by that. I’m a former librarian, a woman who used to belong to 3 book clubs, a writer, and someone who used to be such an avid reader she was a top 25 reviewer on Goodreads.</p>
<p>I mean, 15 isn’t bad…but I didn’t finish as many as I started. And only 19,000 of the 3 million challengers completed their challenge…so I shouldn’t feel too bad. I’m in great company.</p>
<p>This year I’m going to aim a little lower. I’m going to aim for 20 books. How about you?</p>

Happy Holidays! A Favourite Tradition.

<p>Ahhhh…it’s the time of year where it’s nice to curl up near the fire with sweet holiday romances and cups of steaming spiced tea. (I’m partial to Christmas Morning tea at the moment. I couldn’t find it in the grocery stores this year…but then I looked in the back of my tea cupboard and guess what! I had some stashed! Just another reason not to declutter too often.)</p>
<p>As well as reading holiday romances, I love to write them! My most recent release is <a href="[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/indigo-bay-sweet-holiday-romances/"]http://www.jeanoram.com/indigo-bay-sweet-holiday-romances/[/url]">Sweet Holiday Surprise</a> which is part of a wonderful beach series called Indigo Bay. In this series the small beach town of Indigo Bay has a tradition where townspeople and guests add an ornament to the town’s outdoor tree before the lighting on Christmas Eve. Rumour has it that if you make a wish when you place the ornament on the tree, your wish will come true! It’s a favoured tradition in the small town and reminds me of the antique ornaments my mom found in the barn of the farm she grew up in in Northern Ontario. Each year, once all the ornaments were on our family tree, she would hang these five antiques somewhere safe and high on the tree, becoming a small tradition we upheld until her final year.</p>
<p>Now, on the first weekend in December the kids and I set up our tree and decorate it together. It’s an annual tradition I love.</p>
<p>How about you? Do you have any holiday traditions that warm your heart? Which one is your favourite? Share yours in the comment section below.</p>
<p>Happy holidays! All the best to you and your family in 2018.</p>
<p>XO<br />Jean Oram</p>

Happy Holidays: Enjoy 3 Sweet Romance as My Gift to You

  Posted by Jean Oram , 03 December 2017 · 88 views

<h4>Happy holidays!</h4>
<p>It’s the season of giving and I’d like to give you the gift of me-time and three great, sweet and fun books that will warm your heart and provide you with a little treat this holiday season.</p>
<p>I know how busy and crazy the holidays can be with family, parties, gifts, and more. It can be a lot of work and I’d like to give you, my reader, the chance to put your feet up, have a few laughs (and maybe a few tears) as well as some happily ever afters that will warm your heart and leave you smiling.</p>
<p>And so I’d like to offer you my <strong>Blueberry Springs Series Starter Box Set as gift</strong>. It’s a <strong>free</strong> download as an ebook on all of your favourite online bookstores today. This is a very limited time offer so be sure you claim yours today!</p>
