Laughter, the best medicine @ConstanceBretes #romancegems

Been thinking about humor. I’m sure we’ve all encountered humorous situations, embarrassment, and jokes. Some so funny you have to tell it, some so embarrassing you want to forget about it. Practical jokes – well, my husband loves to pull them on me. I have a great sense of humor, and will find things comical even in the most serious, subdued environment.

I have tried to input humor in some of my books, funny incidents that have happened to me. Let’s see if I can recall a few of them.

Jade’s Redemption: In this book, the incident at the creek really happened to me. 

Blue As Sapphires: The battle between Marissa and the squirrel was actually a battle between me and a squirrel.

I have one book that I haven’t edited yet to get it to my publisher called Moonlight Path. This particular book shares my escapades with golfing.

In my new release, Rekindled Christmas Mystery, there is a scene where the two sisters reminisce about Christmases past. The memories are from my childhood. NOTE:  This book was scheduled to be released in March. However, my publisher is fighting her battle with cancer, and understandably, fallen behind in getting books release. As soon as I know the release date, I will let you know.

During this pandemic, I have also gone through my own personal trial and I couldn’t have survived this if it wasn’t for my practical jokester and dry humor husband, and my ability to find humor in things.

So, if you’re having a particular difficult time because of this pandemic, grab some books and escape for a while. Look for humor and have a good belly laugh. Be thankful you’re alive and later on, you’ll be able to share with others the fact you survived the 2020 Covid19 pandemic.

You know what would be fun too, is if you won one of these prizes from the Romance Gems May in Bloom rafflecopter. So, get your name in the drawing and look for your name to be drawn as a winner!


  1. Laughing makes nearly everything better, doesn't it?

  2. I sometimes sprinkle in things that have happened to me also in my books!

  3. There’s a piece of me in every single book I write. And I love sprinkling in some humour, too! You have lovely Constance and I hope your publisher’s health improves. Best of luck with Rekindled Christmas Mystery.

  4. My mother in law says I have inappropriate, gallows humor! But you might as well laugh. As to the embarrassing things - do you sometimes remember them and still cringe? I do!

  5. Laughter really is the best medicine! I hope you are doing well, Constance. Looking forward to REKINDLED CHRISTMAS MYSTERY. Best wishes.

  6. Connie, love humor. Comedies are great to watch and lift our moods, the best medicine for sure. Good luck with the book and to your editor. Health is vital to our lives.

  7. I love humor in books. It is darn difficult to write. Glad you're doing better, Connie.

  8. So the creek scene in Jade's Redemption was real? OMG! *G* Warmest wishes sent your way, Connie.
