      Why do jumping cats freak us out so much? And why do we laugh so hard at people who are freaking out?I'm one of those awkward laughers--someone who laughs at inappropriate times, such as when my husband does the splits on an icy sidewalk or when my child runs smack-dab into a doorpost. Unfortunately, compassion is not my go-to emotion. I do eventually f […]

Tuesday Promotion in Motion: Delores Beggs

Posted by Lisa Lickel on May 8, 2012

Delores Goodrick Beggs is a prolific writer. Her work is influenced by the tolerance of horses for imperfection, the warmth of hounds reaching out, and the caring of heart for all human conditions, packaged in whichever format her inspiration of the moment decrees.

Growing up, she was always writing because radio and television before closed captions failed to entertain. During her teens she wrote mostly nonfiction, poems and short stories, collecting them over the years in a box she saved one Christmas.  As an adult with a hearing disability, she started her From the Heart western series evenings when she came home after working her day job, writing her own stories in the days before closed captions were added to television shows. Breaking Point is the first book in her From the Heart series, coming May 11, 2012 from Desert Breeze Publishing. Visit her web site.

 

 

About the book:

Mauranie Wells is at odds with her sister Tennyson and her demands for money they don’t have when handsome cowboy banker Stemson Arroyo Smith rides into the Wells Double Bar ranch requesting assistance.

ISBN: 978-1-61252-166-4

Available May 11

Welcome to Reflections, Delores. Our usual first question is, What do you love about this book?

The heroine of Breaking Point, Book One of my Place in the Heart series, became my best friend during the long dark evenings spent writing Breaking Point at home after my day job. Television held little appeal for me because closed captions were not available yet, and radio was just a noise. But Mauranie Wells graciously filled entertained me, telling me her story as I pecked on my typing machine. Like Mauranie, I have to compensate for my poor hearing.

So it sounds like you were able to explore your character in a way many of us will never know. What’s the main thing you learned during the process of writing and publishing this book?

You know the saying, stop sometimes to smell the roses? The main thing I learned was what a rich life I had been given to draw upon for this and my upcoming other books of my From the Heart series. I learned how very much I appreciated my wonderful and supportive family, the strength of my horses and the unconditional love of my dogs. We never had much money, but we had a great wealth of the things money can’t buy. Love.

Love. What more can we say? Delores, What should your readers discover and want to share with their family and friends after reading this book?

All about growing up, the good, the bad, and the what ifs. It’s like the saying sunshine always follows a storm. But in life, when they persist, persons have the option of blowing the storm clouds away so the sun can shine.

Thank you, Delores, and best wishes with your future work.

    Thank you for sharing Delores. I’m sure we will be “hearing” more from you. Good luck.

    It sounds this this book was from the heart because you’ve been working on it for so long. Persistance. Good luck in your career!

  3. JoAnn said

    Best wishes, Delores!

  4. Interesting premise. Love the cover. Good luck, with the series.

  5. What a very interesting premise. Living with a parent who had hearing issues this is close to home. Good luck Delores!

  6. As one who fights Tinnitus, I know about preferring books to “sound” media [e.g. TV, radio, DVDs]. Books are always silent, read or written, and always entertaining.

      The world needs to know more about tinnitus. When I fist experienced it, I believed I was hearing fire truck sirens all the time, and looked to the windows trying to locate them. It took a while to understand the blaring noise was in my head.
