First of all, thank you to those of you who have come out to book signings and to those I met at Penned Con in St. Louis this year. I've had a lot of fun traveling around and doing those. There's a few more left and I might add one or two more before the end of the year. The schedule is on the front page of my website. And pictures from the signings I've been doing are on the contact page HERE in case you want to see any! Just scroll down to the bottom and there's a slide show.
NEW KIDS BOOK...BY MY DAUGHTER!
My oldest, Kaelyn (age 8) has had an idea about a duck learning how to speak human. One weekend this summer we were camping and she disappeared into her bed to actually finally put the story down on paper. She wrote and wrote and wrote and then for the rest of the weekend, she read the story to anyone who would listen. I wanted to encourage that so now, I present to you, "Duck's Hard Year of Trying!" You can get it on kindle if you read to your kids that way. We have paperbacks ordered as well. You can order them through amazon or let me know if you want one and we can mail it to you (signed by the author herself!) We can work out a paypal payment or whatever works! She's very proud of her work and excited that it's a real book now! And I'm proud of her as well!!!
NEW CHRISTMAS STORY
I'm putting out another short Christmas story on November 29th called "Another Backwards Christmas." I don't have the pre-order link ready yet, but will towards the end of this month. In the meantime, you can see the cover on the front page of my website here. I love it! If you happened to read "Backwards Christmas," another short story of mine, "Another Backwards Christmas" takes place in the same town (South Pole, Alaska...get it?) with different characters. I hope you'll enjoy it as the holiday season comes upon us!
BOOK CONVENTION GIVEAWAY!!!
I will be attending Show Me Your Books in Kansas City next September. Check out their website and the dates etc to make sure you can/want to go. I have 4 VIP tickets to giveaway!!! If you'd like a pair of them, email be back and tell me why you want to attend. I'll collect the emails and do a random drawing in the mid to late this week and get the winners information on how to redeem the tickets and get ready for a fanastic book convention!!
And I have to mention The Leftover in passing as well. If you haven't already read it, or have yet to leave a review, I'd love to have you do so! I truly love this book and want to turn the idea into a whole series in the future once both my girls are in school. We'll see how that goes!
Thank you again for your support! Feel free to reply or reach out to me any time! I love to hear from you!!!
