Kept Secrets

kept-secrets-blog-tour-bannerI’ve had quite a bit of down time due to my hip surgery last week. Four days in the hospital, and I felt I needed every second of that healing time. I don’t think I read once while I was in there, and even in the preceding days at home after, I’ve been too uncomfortable to do anything but feel sorry for myself. My own personal pity party.

But it’s over now–for the most part. Day by day my body is healing and I am beginning to want to read again. This latest book–Kept Secrets–was pretty intense. I couldn’t put it down once I started it. Continue reading

Back to Utah

biking-book-tour-1

My book has traveled all over this great country in the Tour de Highway. From Northern Utah (start) to Texas (Taylor Dean and Maria Hoagland) to Nebraska (Gina Barlean) to Kansas (Michelle Terry) to Michigan (Rebecca Belliston).

Today, we’ll cross the finish line in Southern Utah with Linda Weaver Clarke, who has kindly refreshed us and interviewed us at the end of this biking book tour. Hop on over to read more about the book and her kind review. She’s awesome.

Biking Book Tour – Michigan

bike1My book is making the rounds in this great country. We left Kansas last week and now are pulling into Michigan to have a pit-stop visit with author Rebecca Belliston. She has written some great books which I love, including:

  • Sadie
  • Augustina
  • The Citizens of Logan Pond series (Life, Liberty and The Pursuit).

teaser2Today she is reviewing my book–Between Hope & the Highway–and conducting a short interview. Hop on over to her blog to join us. She’s great. And thank you to all who have read my book so far and left a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. I really appreciate your kindness and support.

I head into the hospital first thing tomorrow morning for a hip replacement surgery. Sounds yucky…but I’m excited for the end result where I can walk without pain again. I’ll be passing the hospital time and bedrest at home with some good books–including Bad Blood of Rosewood by Gina Barlean, My Stroke of Insight by Dr. Jill Taylor (because my Mom had a stroke recently and I want to understand what stroke does and how to recover better from it), and Kept Secrets by Traci Hunter Abramson (which I’ll review in another week or so).

Happy Wednesday…and may the rest of your week be filled with fun and chocolate.

Tour de Highway – Kansas

Well, Dorothy. We’re in Kansas today. We’ve zipped all over the U.S. on this biking book tour as you can see from the map below. From Utah to Texas and on to Nebraska. If you’ve missed any of the action, here’s a quick summary of the stops we’ve made so far:

Now we’re pulling into Kansas where my good friend, Michelle Terry, is spotlighting Between Hope & the Highway. Whoohoo!

I hope you’ll join my book and I over at Michelle’s for some more prairie-fied goodness. Michelle is the most genuine, authentic woman I know. Once I stumbled onto her blog, I couldn’t leave. She is one of the kindest people I know…and funny. I know you’ll love her too. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of my book  yet, it just went down in price this week…so lucky you.

Happy reading…and biking.
