As a reasonably intelligent, well-educated human, monthly business taxes should NOT be this difficult!!

Fix it, or leave it?

Help!! I'm stuck in a quagmire of analysis paralysis. Is it better to reach for perfection? Or is it okay to claim that good is good enough? I just don't know.

Time is Not My Friend

A fellow writer told me about this app this morning, and I'm excited (and a little anxious) to give it a try. We were discussing how difficult it is to write when so many other tasks/chores/worries/responsibilities are taking up space and emotional bandwidth in our lives. The concept is to "Write Every Day" to unload those concerns, thus freeing my mind to focus on my creative writing — my novels 💖 I'm not sure I'll share what I write in the app every day (some days might feel too personal), but I'm going to give it a try. Perhaps it'll encourage others to give themselves grace to let go of a little stress, too.

Just like movies, romance novels can be rated according to content.

But unlike film ratings, there does not exist a standardized scale or system establishing how hot is hot 🔥

I like to say my love stories have sizzle but no sex...they're unique.

Summertime is all about hot days, splashing in the pool, going purple to #ENDALZ, and spending time with family. The start to this summer has been an especially busy few weeks, but wonderful nonetheless!

Top Gun: A Love Story

I'd argue that Top Gun is a love story, and that it's such a classic! When my family saw the sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, this week, we were not disappointed. In fact we loved it, and you will, too ❤️🤍💙

Holiday Book Bargains

I do believe that books are magic.

Do you know what else is magical? The winter holidays.

It’s true: winter, holidays, and books all go together like soft bread, rich peanut butter, and sweet jelly. They are fortifying, delicious, and good for the soul!

🎉 New Release: Grocery Girl is Book 1 in the Green Hills series of heartfelt and wholesome, small-town romance novels by début author Virginia'dele Smith 🎉

Book 1: Grocery Girl

I hope you enjoy getting to know Maree and Rhys; I think you will feel empathy for their losses and excitement for their wins. 

My Identity Crisis

I began as AshliMontgomery.com and then I had a bit of an identity crisis. It was a good one, to be sure, but a moment of crisis, nonetheless.

Welcome Back

Ten years ago, I launched a blog to share my thoughts, feelings, and favorite things with the world. I’m not actually a blog reader myself, so I didn’t expect anyone to notice or follow it.
