As I approach the house, I can see that Gran is already in the garden. Knowing this isn’t going to go well with her, I suck it up and just deal with this shit literally.
“Lord have mercy, child. What happened to ya?” Gran says, looking toward me.
“Your boy down there had me take the cow shit to the compost pile and you can see the shit won,” I say with my arms crossed.
“Bless your heart. Did you not use the tractor?”
“Tractor?” At that exact moment, I hear an engine and I’ll be damned. Barrick is using a bucket to haul the rest of the manure down there. He looks toward us and waves. It’s on like donkey kong.
Casey Peeler grew up in North Carolina and still lives there with her husband and daughter.
Growing up Casey wasn’t an avid reader or writer, but after reading Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston during her senior year of high school, and multiple Nicholas Sparks’ novels, she found a hidden love and appreciation for reading.  That love ignited the passion for writing several years later, and her writing style combines real life scenarios with morals and values teenagers need in their daily lives.
When Casey isn’t writing, you can find her near a body of water listening to country music with a cold beverage and a great book.

Missing Dixie @CaiseyQuinn is the missing piece!

MissingDixieBanner

Synopsis:

Fighting for redemption . . .

I’ve lived most of my life in darkness, beneath the shadows of secrets and addictions. The last thing I ever wanted to do was hurt the only girl I’d ever loved—the one who brought me into the light. In my entire life I’d made one promise—a promise I’d intended to keep. I’ve broken that promise and now I have to live with the fallout. Dixie Lark hates me, and I have to tell her that I love her. I also have to tell her a truth that might destroy us forever.

Can she love me, even if she can’t forgive me?

Learning to move on . . .

Gavin Garrison broke his promise to my brother and he broke my heart in the process.I may never love anyone the way I’ve loved him, but at least I won’t spend my life wondering “what if.” We had our one night and he walked away. I’m beginning to move on, but my brother’s wedding and a battle of the bands are about to throw us together again.

Our band is getting a second chance, but I don’t know if I can give him one. How do you hand your heart back to the person who set it on fire once already?

Casey’s Thoughts <3<3<3<3<3

Oh how I love Caisey Quinn’s writing style, but this book, I’ve been waiting.  The moment Gavin walked away in Leaving Amarillo my heart hurt.
Missing Dixie is the conclusion to the Neon Dreams Series.  It’s one filled with hope.  The growth of both Dixie and Gavin as individuals is monumental, but within my heart and soul I relate so much to Dixie.   Each and every day I work with individuals that are like Gavin and Liam.  I know how much I want each child to survive and make it in this crazy world.
I literally started Missing Dixie and finished within less than 12 hours.  I grasped at the pages and what was going to occur next.  To see the love between them still there, but yet the unsureness of their relationship played with my heart.  This story will fill you with love, hope, and an ending that makes you smile from ear to ear.  I can’t get enough of this series, and can’t help but wonder what is next for the fabulous Caisey Quinn!

Excerpt

When Dixie finishes, she takes her place across the altar and I can’t tear my stare from her. Her sapphire eyes shine like diamonds with the promise of tears.

I wish I could give you this.

Right as I’m about to look away, her gaze collides with mine. My heart swells in my chest. I have so much to say and no words to say it.

I’m sorry.
I’m trying.
I love you.
She doesn’t even flinch at the turmoil I know is probably apparent on my face. She just gives me a confident smile and a knowing look as if to say, One day.

One day that will be us. A future.
A forever.

I fucking hope so.

I just have no clue how we’ll ever manage to get there.

Southern Perfection is a Perfectly YA!

Title: Southern Perfection
Author: Casey Peeler
Release Date: Jan 13, 2015
Find on Goodreads
Life is full of choices: good, bad, and ones you can’t control. 
Raegan strives to be perfect in every way. Varsity cheerleader, honor student, and proud granddaughter of Dover Lowery. By day, Raegan is an over-achieving high school student, but at three o’clock, her real work begins. 
What happens when appearances are not what they seem? Will Raegan be able to hold on to her life as she knows it, or will she be left all alone? 
All of these questions are answered with one night, one song, one story, and one boy.
When Emmett whispers in my ear that it’s time to go, goose bumps rise on my skin.  I bite my lip and nod in agreement as we make our way outside.  Our ride to the farm is filled with laughter and a desire to constantly touch each other.  I hear Dustin Lynch begin to play through the radio, and before I know what’s going on, Emmett has pulled the truck off the side of the highway with the engine running.  I stifle a laugh as he runs to open my door and squeal as he takes my hand and pulls me to the ground and into his perfectly rock solid body. We sing to each other while moving to the beat as random cars continue down the two-lane highway past us.
On the final beat of the music, Emmett takes my cheek in his hand, my mind races as he pulls my lips to his, and he kisses me like his life depends on it.  This has to be the best kiss of my life.  If I thought I saw stars at the field party, I just got caught in an entire constellation.  When I’m brought back to reality, I know that in this moment, this boy is going to change my life.

“Don’t miss this sweet, cute Southern romance with the bonus of a grandpa-granddaughter story that’s sure to land right in your heart.” ~Trisha Leigh, author
“Casey brings her undeniable exuberance for life to her passion for coming of age stories where she weaves charming and believable stories of love, country music, and small town life.” ~EMI Recording Artist Kelleigh Bannen

#tbt Miss Me Not @AuthorTiffany

This #tbt goes way back to January 2013!

Have you ever made a pact with a friend? In Miss Me Not by Tiffany King, that is exactly what happens.

Madison and her friend James are loners. They make a pact to end their lives because no one will miss them. Life will go on like they were never there. That is until another classmate beats them to it. Now what will they decide… Life or death?

When I first began this book, I was totally blown away with the suicide of classmate Mitch as well as Madison’s resentment for church. I didn’t know if I could read it, especially learning about the pact. Even with that on my mind I had to find out what happened next. I had to find out if they went threw with it!

Madison is a loner for many reasons, but I believe mostly due to her mother. Lets just say I have a few choice words for her! Her story is one of a very independent, young lady. She seems to have accepted her life, consequences for her actions, and feels that death would be better than living.

This book pulled at my heart. As a mother, I wanted to take her as my own. I wanted to know why she was never put first. Why her family as a whole didn’t operate as a family? What made her want to end her life, and why she had lived in the “shadows.”

Miss Me Not isn’t a book about suicide. It’s a book about choices. We all have skeletons in the closet no matter how big or small, it’s what we do with them when we free ourselves that matters most. This book is at the top of my must read list. I give it 5 stars if not more. I honestly don’t know if I can put my feelings in words. The only comment I can make is when life is chosen you can change the outcome, write your own story. If you choose death, you leave an open book for other to write!

The best birthday present ever!

How many of you have one gift you’ve gotten over the years that you never forget? What was it? A Southern Fried Chics dress, a new pair of boots, or even the lastest iPhone? Or have you ever gotten sometime bigger and not materialistic?

For me, it’s what I received on my birthday in 2013 that will is the most memorable. See for me, my life had begun to change. I no longer was just a high school special education teacher, but I was also an aspiring author. Not many people in my small town knew I was publishing a book within the next month, but one man believed in me from the moment I was born. That was my Pawpaw Dover, and on my birthday in 2013 he gained his angel wings.

I know most of you are like what in the world, but for me that was the most precious present I could have received. Let me give you a little insight into that day. Below is a note for readers at the end of Southern Perfection. It was published one year later.

A Note from Casey Peeler

On my birthday, August 23, 2013, my world was rocked. I lost one of the most influential men in my life, my pawpaw. From the day I was born on August 23, 1981, until the day he passed, August 23, 2013, I believed the sun set in him, just as he did me. See, I was “his girl,” but I was also his caregiver in the final days. He has been one of my biggest supporters on this journey as an author, but yet, he didn’t get to see me hit Publish.

     Halfway through the Full Circle Series, I knew Southern Perfection would have to be written, but honestly, until the words were written on the pages, I never knew the impact it would have on my soul.

     Southern Perfection isn’t just a good ol’ country romance. It’s a story of family, taking the good with the bad, always being positive in life regardless the situation, and becoming the person you are destined to become while your loved ones look down and smile upon you each day.

     I hope and pray that every one of you that reads this novel has a Sunshine in your life, because even though mine is no longer with me physically, he still continues to shine through me each day.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00066]

Each of us have memories that stands out in our lives. For me, this day was a blessing and honor. It’s another memory that I will hold dear. So, as we celebrate the “birthday” of the United States independence find a memory to hold close to your heart and take time to hold onto the ones you love!

CTTeaser1

1de41-excerpt

When the band begins to play, I can’t help but smile. I feel at home. This beach is my other home, now if only I could dance. As couples begin to shag on the dance floor, I can’t help but look at Brett’s reaction. He’s taking it all in and watching their footsteps. I begin to giggle. “What?” he asks. I stand and take him by the hand. “I have no clue how to do this.”

“It’s easy. Just remember, one-two-three rock back. I’ll help you, no worries.” I wink. After a few songs, he becomes a natural and, we are laughing, smiling, and dancing like we have been dance partners for years. When the song ends, they slow things down and Brett never lets go of my hands. Instead, he pulls me close to him as we sway back and forth and my lips meet his.

He takes me from the dance floor and leads me to the marshwalk. We walk hand in hand from Wicked Tuna to Sisters Marina while looking at all of the fishing boats and yachts. On our way back, we walk a little slower and stop to watch the tide flow into the marsh. Brett wraps his arms around me and I can’t help but look into the clear Carolina night sky and pray this is real.
