Love in the Time of Corona

April 1st. 2020

With the bliss of a corona-fied schedule, I find myself with zero excuses for writing a new novel. And, so dear readers, I submit that the rough draft of the new book both fills me with surprises and challenges. The setting will be in Comfort, Texas — like the books Comfort Plans and Comfort Songs–and familiar personalities will walk through the pages, but these main characters are modern and fresh, with experiences that are far different from my comfort zone. I’ve spent time with cookbooks open and Googling details so that the events fill authentic. Its a hard thing to get under the skin of characters that I don’t know well, or don’t have experience living their steps. I’m giving it my best shot though, and hope when these pages go through all their edits and polish, that you’ll enjoy the story with the same graciousness you’ve shown to other stories. I’ve flirted with calling the new book, Love in the Time of Corona, but will default to the better title, Comfort Foods.

Have no idea when the new book will be published, but due to the need for stories during these Corona days, I’ve priced all four previous novels as $0.99 eBooks. Hope that gives folks who need a mental vacation, a budget friendly approach to the relief that stories provide.
