What’s Your Texas Ranger Nickname?

Last week, I had the chance to be part of a super fun Release Party for Seven Brides for Seven Texans. We had over a hundred guests at our party, along with games and prizes. It was such a fun way to kick off this book!

Seven Brides for Seven Texans is beginning to appear on the bookstore shelves and at big box stores. If you see it, snap a photo and post it on Facebook. It’s fun for me to see where it’s showing up.

For my segment of the party, I made up a little game called “What’s Your Texas Ranger Nickame?” My hero, Chisholm Hart, is a dimpled Texas Ranger with wit, grit, and charm. In the words of my friend Shannon Vannatter, “Y’all might like to piddle around with the game, too.”

Oh, by the way, I described Chisholm with “dimples as deep as canyons.”


Now that we have that out of the way, let’s get down to business. Y’all need Ranger nicknames.



And here’s the bookmark that we ended up choosing, mostly because the one with the seven riders ended up being a screen shot from the Magnificent Seven. Ooops.


So what’s your Texas Ranger nickname? Do dimples make you swoon? Oh, I sure hope so. And if you’d like some book marks to share with friends or place in your local library, leave me a note below. I’d love some help from my “posse” in spreading the word about this fun novella collection.

  1. Howdy, I’m Smiley Sharpshooter and…Oh my…dimples…uh…definitely swoonworthy!!!!! Be. Still. My. Heart. I’ll let you know if I discover Seven Brides for Seven Texans at the Christian bookstore up here…if I ever get there. I was going to try getting out there today but…SNOW!!!!!! Roads are a mess and buses are stuck all over the place so….not happening in the next little while. Hurummpph!

    1. Kav, it sounds like winter in Canada is in full swing. We had some snow here on Saturday, but most of it melted yesterday. Nothing significant, but it was sure pretty.

  2. Hey there, Smiley Sharpshooter and … (Lorna, what’s your Texas Ranger name? Captain …?). Howdy do from Django Kid here. Deep dimples are definitely swoonworthy! And, yes, I’d love to have bookmarks to pass around! Got my copy of Seven Brides in the mail about a week ago, but haven’t had time to open it yet. And it’s so pretty, I don’t want to wreck it, so I might have to read the library copy instead.

  3. Happy Kid over here– not going to lie, it doesn’t sound very tough! But that’s OK; I’ve never pretended to be a gritty cowboy. Lorna, I’d love some bookmarks at some point. This might make a fine Christmas gift for a few people I’m thinking of…

    1. Oh, Stephanie, I think this book makes a good gift–partly because it’s just so pretty with its inside cover pics and deckled edges. And either way, you can have bookmarks. 🙂

  4. I’m Hammer Tracker! What a name! I won a copy of this book on Susan Page Davis’blog (which made me so happy), but I haven’t received it yet. I’d be glad to have some bookmarks to leave at my library.

  5. Preacher The Crazy! Some of my friends might agree with this nickname. 🙂 My husband and son have dimples, but my son’s are his trademark. I tease him that when we lose something, we might find it in one of his deep dimples.
