Packing my bags for a blog tour!

July 21st. 2017

Hello, friends. Hope you’re in an armchair traveling mood. One of the reasons I write is to take mental vacations to places I want to explore and experience. (And buying a book is a lot cheaper than an airline ticket!) I hope that’s one of the reasons you read too.

Bloggers with Lone Star Literary are ready to take my latest book, Comfort Plans, on a tour and share their thoughts, insights, and reviews of the plot with their readers across Texas and assorted state lines. I’ve never met these bloggers in person, but I read their reviews of other books and hope they enjoy spending time between the pages of this Hill Country contemporary novel, uncovering the backstory of house that was ready to spill it’s beans about the past. I’ll be watching from afar, because I discover their reviews the same time you do.

I’ll be in Jackson Hole, Wyoming when the blogs debut on┬ásocial media those first few weeks of August, so my bags are going to high country and I’ll end days of hiking and exploring with time around the computer, touching base with readers and friends who are starting or ending their days with Comfort Plans. I’m thinking of these blogs like a “trip advisor” for mental vacation spots! If you enjoyed your time in Comfort, please leave a review on the Amazon page or at GoodReads so others can know what other vacationers have experienced.

Comfort Plans Let Loose on the Market!

June 2nd. 2017

One of my favorite stories I’ve ever concocted is now let loose in the marketplace. I’m not sure an author should say they have favorites–that’s a bit like a mother saying she prefers one child over another–but Comfort Plans has been in my heart, imagination, and computer for many years. It’s evolution is one that I hold dear. My agent and I shopped this story (in an earlier version) because it was a fun story with memorable characters, but it wasn’t until I told the story that the old German farmhouse wanted to tell that the novel really took on some grit. As a fan of “house stories” –because who hasn’t thought that walls could talk??–I was able to tap into limestone of this Comfort location and mine it for new layers. The dust from that story added a new level of tension to the one going on with the house’s remodel and before long the architect and the contractor were getting remodeled too. The book’s cover is so dreamy that I’ve had strangers comment on the colorful design and wonder about the handwriting in the background. You’ll just have to read to find out why the cover is so perfect–thank you, Holly Forbes at Forbes and Butler Graphic Design. The book is on Amazon and local Longview stores–Barron’s and Louis Morgan. It will be formatted for Kindle soon, so if e-readers are your format, hang on, it shouldn’t be much longer until it’s up at Kindle. I’d value your kind reviews on Amazon or Goodreads, so enjoy the story and tell all your friends.
