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-Nebraska

tour-de-highway-1

The book race continues. Between Hope & The Highway started in Utah, pedaled down to different points in Texas to meet with authors–Maria Hoagland and Taylor Dean. Now we have busted our buns up to Nebraska (pant, pant) to be interviewed by my good author friend, Gina Barlean. I hope you can join us to cheer my book on down the highway. The more the merrier.

Biking Book Tour-UT to TX

bike-startLast year I did a Biking Blog Tour for my Bending Willow Trilogy books. During the Tour de Hands,  we biked all over the place to spread the word about those suspenseful books. It was fun visiting places like Texas, Cape Cod, Nebraska, Kansas, Utah and Michigan. This year, I thought I’d do another cross-country tour–the Tour de Highway–to kick off marketing for Between Hope & the Highway.

My book started this endurance race two days ago in Utah when Amazon released it to the public. It’s been zooming to get ahead of the pack ever since. Today, we have a stop in Texas, where my  good friend, Maria Hoagland, has graciously spotlighted Between Hope & the Highway. Hopefully, while we’re there, we can gulp down water and eat chocolate to refuel. You can also enter a rafflecopter giveaway to win a copy of my book! It’s easy. Continue reading

The Wife Maker

I’m so excited to tell you about my latest read…The Wife Maker, which is the final story in the Husband maker series.

SYNOPSIS

Charlotte has spent years as the husband maker, sending every guy she dates off to enjoy marital bliss with the next girl he dates. But things have now changed, and she’s determined to use her husband-maker abilities one last time–on herself. And she finally knows exactly who she wants.

Angus has loved Charlotte since they were teenagers, but he’s tired of waiting for her to realize how good they could be. She’s broken his heart one too many times, and it’s time to move on with his life. Maybe a position halfway across the country will be just what he needs to get over her. But when Charlotte won’t let him go without a fight, Angus has to decide if he’s willing to let her in again or if she’s too late. Continue reading

Tour de Hands – Day 7

file0001299095800Today’s leg of the race is taking my books to the great state of Utah where Cami Checketts is at the finish line to hug my books with a little review. They’re over halfway done with the tour and are a little winded, having started in Texas, kicked it cross-country to Cape Cod, narrated in their sleep in Nebraska, and caught air in Kansas before heading to the mountains for some strenuous uphill cycling. Continue reading

Tour de Hands – Day 6

file0001156906573And the race continues. This tour has covered a lot of area over the last two weeks. My books have traveled to Texas, cycled to Cape Cod, napped in Nebraska after covering a grueling Midwest section of the race.

But today they’re kicking it into high gear to reach Kansas, where my good friend, Michelle Terry, is interviewing the team while we take a breather in Topeka. I hope you’ll show your support by reading her article. Continue reading

Tour de Hands – Day 5

P8140329Yeehaw! My books are on the go again after a nice break at Taylor Dean’s site last week in Texas. Now they’ve traveled up to the great state of Nebraska and are stopping for another pit stop at Gina Barlean’s farm. Gina is another friend of mine who I wish to meet in person. She’s an awesome writer who has also been a tremendous support. She read my series and even beta-read the last book and gave me feedback. I’m so grateful to connect with her through our writing.

Tour de Hands-Day 1

cityBikeRidersIt’s a little cold for biking right now, but my book, Hands of Mercy, wanted some exercise still.

Today, Eyes of Light (Vol. 1) is in the lead over at Taylor Dean’s blog down in Texas. Taylor is not only one of my favorite authors, but she’s also Continue reading
