Read the series: Don't Forget the Dog (Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor) by Linda O'Connor @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #RomanticComedyLinda O’Connor, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your series.

Don’t Forget the Dog in the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor Series

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is second only to her skill at matchmaking!

Blaine McKinnon, owner and executive chef of an upscale restaurant in Mapleton, has an adorable Old English sheepdog named Tacos. Brogan is roped into dog-sitting Tacos at Blaine’s house. The upside is the spectacular kitchen at her disposal.

Dr. Sabrina Langfield, a newly minted doctor, is in a bind when her mom, Rue, falls and fractures her wrist. Brogan offers to help and does double-duty looking after Tacos and Rue.

Blaine and Sabrina were high school sweethearts but parted ways when Blaine pushed Sabrina to pursue a career. Sabrina hasn’t seen him since, but Rue is a huge fan and frequents his restaurant. Rue’s biggest regret is her part in Sabrina and Blaine’s break-up, and with Brogan’s help, she’s determined to get them back together. It might not be that easy – Sabrina is wary of Tacos and, more pressing, she’s decided to move a four-hour flight away to do five more years of training in emergency medicine.

Will meddlesome matchmaking, Blaine’s persuasiveness, and – don’t forget the dog – Tacos’ sweet nature be enough to convince Sabrina to stay?

Which book is this in the series?

Don’t Forget the Dog is the second book of the Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor series.

How many books do you plan for the series?

4

How many books are completed?

3 – The third book will be released August 4, 2020. I’m currently writing the fourth with a planned release date of November 4, 2020.

What characters are the main stars in your series?

Dr. Brogan Corkie is a semi-retired doctor. Her new hobbies include cooking and matchmaking! She stirs up romance and bakes up a plot to keep the couples together. Each story stands alone and overarching throughout the four books, Brogan’s heart is tangled up in romance, too.

What is the overall theme in this series?

These stories are fun and light-hearted second chance romances with happy-ever-after endings. They are set in small town Mapleton and the heroine or hero (or both) is a doctor. Sometimes all you need is a nudge in the right direction!

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Don’t Drop the Baby

Don’t Forget the Dog

Don’t Unravel the Past

Don’t have a title for the 4th one yet :D

What did you like best about writing this series?

Throwing two people together who are reluctant to love and nudging their heads to catch up to their hearts is always fun. Throw in witty dialogue, a baby, a dog, a secret past, and Christmas shenanigans, and I was laughing as I wrote them.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

I have written:

6 books in the Perfectly Series: Perfectly Honest, Perfectly Reasonable, Perfectly Planned, Perfectly Unpredictable, Perfectly Christmas, Perfectly Together

4 books in the In the Game Hockey Romance series: Between the Pipes, Behind the Bench, Beyond the Face-Off, Before the Whistle

1 book as part of a multi-author series set in Copper Mills: Time for the Doctor

Laugh along with a new romantic comedy series set seven years before the movie Sweet Home Alabama, by @Kris_Bock and @dougeboch #RLFblog #RomanticComedyDouglas J Eboch and Kris Bock, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock

Genre romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (underage drinking)

Big City, Big Glamour, Big Trouble

Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

Melanie’s mother has been shoving her into every beauty pageant within twenty miles since Melanie was a toddler. Melanie is getting a little sick of it. She’s on the verge of quitting when she qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant in the big city of Mobile. The first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek, not to mention that one of the judges is a real, live New York fashion designer. The competition will be fierce. Can a “trailer trash” girl outshine the snooty debutantes?

Meanwhile, Jake and his friends go to Mobile to support Melanie – and to party in the big city. But when the pageant is cursed by disasters from cockroaches in the banquet hall to skunks on stage, the gang suspects someone is sabotaging the contest. They try to figure who’s behind it and why, but it isn’t easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they’re more than what people see on the surface?

Know the Heroine from Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock @Kris_Bock @dougeboch #RLFblog #YAlitDouglas J Eboch and Kris Bock, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! We’re excited to find out more about your heroine, but first, tell us about Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock

Genre Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Introducing the new young adult romantic comedy series featuring “Felony Melanie” seven years before the events of the movie Sweet Home Alabama.

Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

When Melanie qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant Southern Regional in the big city of Mobile, the first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek. But can her homemade dresses compete against the expensive gowns, and can a “trailer trash” girl survive when a haughty debutante will do anything to destroy the competition.

Meanwhile, Jake thinks beauty pageants are silly, but he’ll be there to support Melanie – as long as he can avoid getting kicked out by hotel security. Then Jake and his friends start to suspect someone is sabotaging the whole pageant. They try to follow the clues, but it isn’t easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they’re more than what people see on the surface?

Suitable for ages 12 and up.

Know the Heroine from Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Sneak out of the trailer home, find Jake and maybe some of the rest of the gang, and get into trouble.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Barbecue, yum!

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

When she’s not gussied up for the beauty pageant stage, she prefers to wear clothes that can stand up to running through the woods to escape the sheriff, and maybe a dive into the pond.

Does she know how to fix things?

She’s better known for breaking things.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

“Felony Melanie” earned her nickname because everything she tries to do seems to go badly. There was the episode of blowing up the bank. Totally in accident. We don’t talk about that (much).

Sign up for our newsletter and get Felony Melanie Destroys the Moonshiner’s Cabin. These first two chapters from the novel Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium stand alone as a short story. You can probably guess from the title that this is not one of Melanie’s more successful evenings.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

In Pigeon Creek, everyone knows everyone.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

So not a morning person.

Can she use chopsticks?

She’s seen chopsticks.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Coffee with lots of sugar when she was out late getting into trouble, and now she needs to wake up and pretend to be a respectable young lady on the beauty pageant stage.

What apps would she have on her phone?

It’s 1993 in rural Alabama. What are apps?

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

2 Tips for Grocery Shopping in COVID-19 and taking off a mask from Dr. Linda O'Connor author of Don't Drop the Baby @LindaOConnor98 #RLFblog #RomanticComedyLinda O’Connor, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Thanks for sharing two tips with us today, but first, please tell us about Don’t Drop the Baby.

Don’t Drop the Baby (Dr. Brogan Corkie Matchmaking Doctor, Book 1) by Linda O’Connor

Genre Medical Romantic Comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG

Dr. Brogan Corkie is happily semi-retired from medicine and now has time for other hobbies. Her passion for food is only second to her skill at matchmaking!

Ross Skye, owner of BabyCare, a high-end line of baby merchandise, is injured in an accident, and Brogan uses her cooking, medical – and matchmaking – skills to help him out. Dr. Lauren Kane is taking care of her nephew for two weeks, and Brogan agrees to babysit while Lauren is at work.

Two years ago, Ross and Lauren dated. At that time, Lauren wanted kids, but Ross wasn’t keen. Now the tables have turned, and Ross is trying to convince Lauren that they’d make an awesome parenting team. Brogan suggests they test drive parenthood by looking after a simulated baby for a week – a computerized version that eats, sleeps, wets, and cries. Ross and Lauren experience the “joy” of having a newborn firsthand, and the bar is set pretty low. Their first goal is: don’t drop the baby. The second goal is to find out if their love for each other will survive the test of…parenting.

Two Tips for Family

There’s an art to taking off a mask. Imagine that the front of it is covered in virus – the name of the game is not to touch it and don’t spread the virus to the rest of your face. (The virus enters the body through the mucus membranes of your eyes, nose, and mouth.)

First wash your hands. Then remove the mask by touching the ties or ear loops only. Lift it away from your face and don’t shake it. It should go directly into the washing machine. Then – no surprise – wash your hands again.

If you think your hair or face is contaminated then you should shower. If you’ve leaned on a contaminated surface, remove your clothes and throw them in the washer as well. The mask and clothes should be washed with hot water and put into a dryer with a hot cycle.

If you’re wearing gloves and a mask, the gloves come off first. Roll them off turning them inside out as you go so you don’t touch the outside. Then wash your hands before you do anything else (like removing the mask.)

Two Tips for Household Chores

When grocery shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic leave your purse at home and just carry your debit or credit card. That way you don’t have to worry about picking up the virus on the surface. Don’t touch your phone until after you wash your hands.

As soon as you get home, wash your hands. Leave your grocery bags on the floor; don’t put them on the kitchen counter. Put the perishables away and wash your hands again.

Coronavirus can live on cardboard for 24 hours and on metal or glass for 3-5 days. Separate out the non-perishables and, if you can, let them sit for 5 days.

If you wash your fruit and vegetables with soap, any soap residue left on them can cause an upset stomach and diarrhea. Food experts suggest that washing them with water is enough. But…sinks tend to be super grungy so not a great place for fruit and vegetables to go for a swim.
