Destiny Vacations – J.J. Blake’s Denver Colorado

 Destiny Vacation Banner

There are moments when a story comes together and my recent trip to Denver, Colorado was a cosmic wink of sorts to J.J. and Sam’s upcoming story, The Perfect Storm. When I started J.J.’s backstory months ago, Colorado popped into my head and I knew John Jacob Blake Jr., ex-quarterback for the fictional Denver Colts had found a periodic home away from the Twelve Horseshoes Ranch.

 

 Cosmic Winks

 

1 – The barista that took my order at a Denver Starbucks was named Sam!

 

2 – I was channel hopping in the hotel room and turned to the movie…The Perfect Storm.

 

3 – On the Denver City tour, the driver turned down Blake Street!

Blake Street 1

4 – Visited the Red Rocks Amphitheater and the headliner performing that night was Chris Young, my fictional Tate!

 

5 – The tour stopped the Molly Brown House Museum and the driver told the history of “Unsinkable” Molly Brown and her husband J.J. (James Joseph Brown)

 

The last time I had such a connection was when I took a trip to Philadelphia and was doing final edits on the book that started it all, For the Love of the Game. I was out taking photos of the city when my fictional vision of Seth jogged right past me!

Some people may call it all a coincidence but this series of wacky events has assured me that J.J. and Sam were meant to spend some time in Denver in the book. This week has been a fantastic adventure and J.J. may just be the hottest Blake yet.  Because some things, as I discovered this week, are meant to be.

Happy Reading!

  1. I have really enjoyed all of your books and have been anxiously waiting for the latest in the series, however, when I tried to purchase it on Kobo (as I did with all of your other books), I was unable to. Can you please let me know if it will be released on the Kobo platform?

    Thank you.

  2. I agree also Rhonda. I believe in fate and I also believe some things are meant to be. You always seem to be in the right place at the right time. Can’t wait for JJ

    Oh Rhonda, I believe in cosmic signs also , I think the “powers at be” are always trying to guide us to be the most successful versions of ourselves we just have to pay attention. My Beloved Father although he was not an overly religious man by any means used to say to me all time ” God always comes in a whisper first no matter the situation good or bad , learn to hear the whisper in the whisper you still have choice ….. But when he speaks his voice It Is DONE!”

    You recognized the whisper , it’s what lead you to become a remarkable writer/ storyteller . Thank for listening to it, it has brought so much joy to so many. I am positively giddy with this new book coming !!! Tamara
