Best Things about the South

Please welcome guest author, Casey Crow! She’s one of the sweetest authors I know and I’m happy to have her here today!

Thank you, Katie, for having me today! I’m so excited about all the recent success and releases you’ve been having! I’m excited, too, to share my debut CAN’T FAKE THIS which comes out Dec. 6th with Loose Id. On that day, I’m having a blog party at Casey Crow where twelve authors are doing twelve give-aways to go along with the Twelve Days of Christmas theme in the story. Mark your calendar to win some great books by best sellers from all genres!

CAN’T FAKE THIS is about a divorcee ready to reenter the dating world. Anna Ryan is determined to be the best “product on the market,” which requires a lot more experience so she propositions sexy police officer Chase Harris to teach her how to make hot, passionate love as opposed to just having sex. He takes it a step further, instructing each lesson based on The Twelve Days of Christmas.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…temptation in a hot package. For more, check out the book trailer and excerpt!

The story definitely has my “Sexy, Sassy & Southern” trademark. Speaking of the South, I’ve put together my list of Top 10 Favorite Things about the South.

1. Sweet tea and sweeter accents

2. Macaroni & cheese is a vegetable and pecan pie is a staple

3. Y’all is a proper noun

4. Smocked dresses and hairbows as big as a little girl’s head

5. Front porches are wide and words are long

6. Sultry summer nights that start in April

7. Mardi Gras

8. SEC football

9. Pageants are serious business

10. Everything is darlin’ and someone’s heart is always blessed

So what are your favorite things about where you live? I hope you’ll take advantage of the uniqueness of your area and enjoy it, no matter where you hail.

  1. Casey, great having you on the blog! Can’t Fake This sounds fantastic (and hot!) 😉 I’m from south Louisiana, so yeah, Y’all is a proper noun. I could do without the SEC football, but because I’m oppositional defiant Roll Tide! *laugh* Favorite thing about where I live? Walking into a store and seeing someone you know who asks you “how’s your mama and them?”

  2. Thank you, ladies of Darker Temptations, for having me today! Danica, I grew up in a small town so I know what you mean about folks greeting each other and doing the finger wave thing when they pass each other driving down the road.

  3. Thanks so much for blogging here today, Casey! You have quite a list and hit two of my faves. Pecan pies and Mardi Gras are two wonderful reasons I love living in the South.

  4. Thanks, Katie. Is it sacreligous to not like moon pies though? Living in Mobile, I get to experience Mardi Gras upclose and personal. My favorite is the Knights of Revelry party on Fat Tuesday when all the ladies wear spring suits and fancy hats.

    • Hate to break it to you but I think it might be a little wrong not to like moon pies, lol. I was crazy trying to grab moon pies at the Mardi Gras parade this year. Since I was pregnant then I think people were afraid of me and let me have them 😉

  5. Thanks for visiting today, Casey! Your release sounds scorching hot and perfect for a holiday read!

    What I like about northern California is that I’m right in between ocean and beautiful mountains. Whether I want to soak up some sun or run for the hills, neither are out of reach. 🙂

  6. I love this list, Casey!!! And congrats on your upcoming release!

  7. I’m from South Texas so my list isn’t much different from yours…lol. Except we’re “fixin” to do alot of things. Every soft drink is a Coke…what kind? Dr. Pepper. Smiles are long, laughs are hearty, and “y’all” and “gonna” are staple words in our vocabulary. I grew up here, moved to Dallas, moved to Colorado, and then brought my then 5 year old daughter here. She was very “you guys”. First thing I had to teach her was “y’all”. I said, “please don’t say you guys, people will be looking around for guys.”

  8. Kristin ~ Thanks for the kind wishes. It was fun to write. I’ve only visited Cali once and loved it. Had a picture made with my then 5 month old daughter under the Rodeo Drive sign. Perhaps that’s why she is such a fashionista now. LOL

    Cynthia ~ Thanks so much for all your support! You are awesome.

    Sharla ~ I can relate to everything you said! I love Texas. I’ve spent a lot of time there and have a great many friends who have proven that no one has more state spirit than Texans.

  9. Hi Casey! Thanks for visiting today. I live in the Pacific NW and love that we have four distinct seasons and know that when you see two deer cross the road, you need to stop and wait for the next three. 🙂

    • Thanks, Rebecca. I had fun at the Darker Temptations blog! I’ve never gotten up to your neck of the country, but it sounds beautiful. I’m in Mobile, Alabama, which has something in common with Seattle. Mobile has more rainy days but Seattle gets more rain. Or vise versa. I can’t ever remember which is which,but I know we have a 30 minute thunderstorm almost every summer afternoon. Does wonders for the already horrendous humidity!


    i was just in a store yesterday. the woman asked, what is your accent, i told her, i was born and raise in ga. but now live 5 miles over tn line. she says, it seems more than that, well me and my daughter has a speech problem, some words are hard as heck to say. i told her, what every one said about my accent, southern britain accent m, she said THATS IT

  11. I lived in Oklahoma growing up – I agree with all our points!
