First Signing for A RED, RED ROSE is a Success!

Tuesday night the Westlake Library meeting room was brim-full with folks waiting to hear about my just-released cozy mystery/Southern Gothic novel A RED, RED ROSE. I spoke about my historical research, the idea that inspired my writing process and the setting prototype which is so obviously Smith Mountain Lake where we all live.I read a selection that was designed to leave them salivating for more! My lively audience asked wonderful questions and many lined up for signed copies of my novel. I was blown away! THIS is the fun part about being published. Thanks to the Westlake Library staff and the Franklin County Friends of the Library for providing a warm setting and cool refreshments for the event. And thanks to all those who took time out from their busy schedules to offer me support.

A Review and some new appearances
Please read this excellent review. I am thrilled to be compared to Carson McCullers one of my all-time favorite Southern gothic authors. Thanks, Peter!
Spent today at the Smith Mt. Lake Library for a "Meet and Greet," with other authors, musicians and artisans. A fun day and I sold some books! Next stop is a personal signing at the Westlake Library April 24 at 5:30 PM. Also, I'll be a presenter at the Sedalia Writers Conference the last weekend in April and will speak at the SML AAUW meeting in May. MORE to come! I love a busy spring!
