The Adorable Casey Crow is My Guest of the Day

I love Casey. She’s a fun, southern girl and full of great story ideas and a wonderful hostess.  She also has a novella coming out with Loose-id very soon. I asked her to come visit us today so you can get to know her and her characters a bit. 

CASEY:

By: Casey Crow

I love my best girlfriend. She’s the one I call when I need advice and more often than not, need to vent. She never judges — although I’ve done some pretty stupid things — and accepts me for me. I can always count on her to tell me the true, even if I don’t want to hear it.

The same is true for the relationship Anna and Marisol have in my upcoming December 6 release of CAN’T FAKE THIS from Loose, Id. Anna knows how she feels deep down, but needs her best gal pal to confirm it. Here’s a an excerpt:

Marisol and I sat on her back porch, drinking hot chocolate on another relatively warm afternoon for December. God, I loved the South, where sixty degrees isn’t unusual for the height of winter. Even so, a flame blazed in the fire pit located in the center of her coffee table.

“Have you made a decision?” Marisol asked. She pushed around the remnants of the homemade smores our kids created earlier as she searched for more marshmallows to add to her cup. “It’s been over three weeks, and you were wrong. You said I’d pine for two weeks, but I’m still moping around barely able to function.”

“Has he contacted you?”

“At first, he would text every couple of days. Nothing big. He asked how I was. Stuff like that. I kept it light and distant, then today he sent me a message asking how was he ever going to get over me.”

“Did you reply?”

“No. I wanted to tell him, I’ll let you know when I figure out how I’m going to get over you, but then I got another message. Said he missed me all the time and it wasn’t just about sex. That he simply loved being with me.”

Marisol’s mouth dropped. “He’s seriously in love with you.”

I nodded.

“How do you feel?”

I took a big gulp of hot cocoa. “I’m attracted to him, but there’s more. I love him. He makes me laugh and feel good about myself. Chase cherishes and protects without dominating. He lets me be me and loves me for that.”

“Do you still think it’s a rebound thing?”

“No. I’ve done some serious soul searching, and all I could come up with is yeah, Frog number one should have been the jumping off board, but why dive again when I’m already over my head in love?”

Marisol sat her cup down and leaned forward to garner my full attention. “Take a chance. Don’t be afraid and risk happiness for the sake of obeying the post-divorce books.”

I rubbed my forehead, letting her words sink in.

“Call him.”

I glanced at her.

“Better yet, go see him.”

 Thanks to Jillian for having me today. Speaking of great gal pals, Jillian definitely ranks up there! Do you a story about you and your best friend? An embarassing moment? Mine involves a fender bender in high school. I wasn’t driving, but distracting my friend singing Elvira. I pretty much made her run into this guy ‘s truck, and he had such crush on her. Well, maybe not so much after she scratched his pride and joy. Are there any touching stories you’d like to share? I’d love to hear about them.

  1. Thanks so much for having me, Jillian!

  2. Nice to get to know you Casey. I loved the excerpt.

  3. So glad you stopped by, Lavada. Nice to meet you! I’m so excited about my upcoming release. Sure does make a nice Christmas present 🙂

  4. Oooh. I love stories with that close of a friendship in them. You can survive anything if you have a best friend to help you through it. I’m having trouble coming up with specific stories, but I love the feeling of knowing those friends are there for good or for bad. And that they’ll lean on me as much as I lean on them. That give and take is as important as the stories to me.
    Great excert, Casey. Congrats on the forthcoming release. And it’s nice to meet you!

    • Nice to meet you, Laura! You are so right. My BFF moved about five hours away some four years ago so we really have to make an effort to stay in touch. We call each other about once a week, but usually life gets in the way and it can stretch to two or three weeks, but the best part is when we finially get around to talking, it’s like no time at all has passed. That, to me, is the sign of a great friend!

  5. Thanks again for having me, Jillian!
