Menagerie Blog Tour: Day Six With Jan Sikes

Hey, Readers! Welcome to February. Yes, I know it’s already the second, but it’s my first time posting this month. It’s also Ground Hog Day. I’m not sure if that little varmint saw his shadow or not, but I do know I don’t like winter!

By the way, here in Texas, we have Bee Cave Bob. He’s an armadillo that also predicts if we’ll have a long winter or early spring. In case you don’t know it, armadillos are a Texas icon. The song “London Homesick Blues” written by Gary P. Nunn and made popular by Jerry Jeff Walker talks about a Texan who is stuck in London, is homesick for his state, and wants to go home where there are armadillos and good country music.

But back to the subject. Today is the sixth stop on the Menagerie book tour. As you probably know, I feature a different story and tell readers what inspired me to write it.

Today, I’m visiting with fellow Texan Jan Sikes. She and I had the pleasure of meeting in person last fall and it seemed like we’d known one another forever. Jan is a Story Empire contributor, an award-winning author, and a music lover. Her latest release Saddled Hearts is the third of her White Rune Trilogy. If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it.

Below is a list of the stops. Links will be updated as each post goes live. Comments are closed here, but I’d be delighted if you’d join me today at Jan’s site. Not only do I talk about writing, but also music. (Imagine that!)
