Hey all, if you are a frequent reader here then you know my husband and I love fishing! So I was excited to get some more fishing gear from KastKing. The only problem is we just got 12 inches of snow recently, so it was making it hard to fish right.
While we were stuck in the house last weekend watching Winter Storm Jonas, hubby decided that would be a good time though to play with the new fishing gear we got.
Here is some videos of him putting the line on the KastKing Stealth Carbon Fiber Baitcasting Reel
If you look and listen closely on these videos, you can see all the snow out the window and in one you can here the weatherman talking about the storm forecast.lol

Q&A with Jodi Thomas
- This is your second book in the Ransom Canyon series. Tell us about the town.
In RUSTLER’S MOON the town of Crossroads has grown. After allowing their museum to sit empty for a year, the book opens with a new curator coming. The museum comes alive and brings the town together as Angela Harold wakes up to life and loving for the first time. The quiet, shy curator carries a secret that will threaten the whole town and leave rancher Wilkes Wagner fighting for his life as he protects Angela.
- We’ve heard you have an inspiration room for your writing. Tell us about the spot.
Ransom Canyon room: When I began the series, I moved my computer to a little room out back of my house. We call it the bunkhouse. It’s not big, mission designed and almost a hundred years old. I took down all the western art and put up white boards. Removed all books except those on ranching, horses, Texas, or research I might need. Family histories of characters fill one wall. Plot lines another. When I step into the bunkhouse, I step into the world of Ransom Canyon. One by one my characters come in and sit down to tell me their story.
I even have pictures of the flowers of Texas taped up in the bathroom and a Jack Sorenson print of horses running into the canyon on the door.
- Are there any characters in the series you’d consider for a spin-off?
Yes. There are characters outlined on one board of my study that may not make it into this series. Who knows? Maybe they’ll find their way in the future.
- If RUSTLER’S MOON were made into a movie, who would you cast as the lead characters?
Like many of my readers I spent my Christmas holidays snowed in and watching Hallmark movies. Almost every movie I’d say, “That actor would be perfect as this character.” I’d love to hear from my readers about who they see as playing Wilkes Wagner in RANSOM CANYON.
