Lavender Ladies and Purple Prose

Forget the 'Purple Prose' part. That was just to draw you in. I know I'm bad, and I apologize for that. However the 'Lavender Ladies' is a real deal. I could call them 'Shades of Lavender Ladies Book Club' due to their fab photo where each is wearing that stunning color I adore in sweaters and tops. Really, they are 'The Boyd's Book Reading Circle', and they chose Surrender the Wind for their October read.

It really touches this writers heart to hear that a book club has chosen my novel and will be discussing it. It's a bit scary too. But that's okay. 

I'm still running toward the finish line tape for Beside Two Rivers, and set my deadline for January 1. But for the last couple weeks, I am at a rapid walk instead of a sprint. A huge event is on the horizon Thanksgiving weekend that I am co-coordinating with best selling suspense author Wanda Dyson and writer Leah Morgan. It's going to be a huge book signing event in Hagerstown, Maryland, consisting of 13 authors (as of this date) some Christy Award winners. I'll let you know more later.

For now, I have to close, but not without sending my regards to the Boyd's Book Reading Circle. Thanks, ladies.
