Just couldn’t wait to share this with you all: “River of Secrets, Summer of the Rose”, the first book in my “Enchanted River of the Rose” series, now has a new cover, as well as a new and improved, and hopefully more informative (without giving away too much, wink, wink) back blurb (description/summary). (Please note: for now, until it has time to get into the system, you may still see the old versions when you click onto the Amazon listing, but you would receive the newer version.)

For those who may have been wondering why I haven’t posted in a while, my husband just recently finally got his kidney transplant, and he just recently ended up back in the hospital with a mild case of rejection, but the awesome doctors and specialists on his care team at UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill, NC have done a wonderful job, and we are back home now. (If any of you are reading this, much love and hugs to you all for the awesome expertise and care you have shown us during Keith’s surgery and recent hospitalization! We appreciate you!) So, it goes without saying that we have been pretty busy, and for the first few weeks after the surgery, I have been busy taking care of him, making sure he gets his meds, especially his anti-rejection meds, which are important to keep him from rejecting the kidney, weekly follow up visits, etc. After all, he is my high school sweetheart, and has in return been my closest confidant and advisor, and a big help to me with advice concerning my books, marketing, plans, and all of that good stuff AND he has read both of my books!

Meanwhile, now about my End of Summer, Back to School Blow Out! The Kindle versions of both of my books are now only $1.99! That’s right, I have just lowered the price for the Kindle version of this book, as well as the Kindle version of my first book, “Return to Freedom, Voices in the Wind”. It may be a day or so before they are available at the new price because of course, any changes we make have to go through their approval process, but check back in a day or so and they should be up. So, the new price for the Kindle versions of both of these books is now only (insert drum roll) $1.99! Also, both of these are in Amazon’s Kindle Matchbook Program, meaning if you buy the print version of a book, the Kindle version is free. The print versions are still $9.95, I have gone as low as I can on them (we can’t list them below the minimum cost to produce them, etc.) If you don’t have a Kindle device, that’s okay, you can now download the Kindle app to your smartphone or device. There are links on the page to download the app.

As summer comes to an end and everyone is getting ready to go back to school, what better way to unwind on the weekends than curling up with a great summer read for one more last minute summer adventure? Both of these stories involve events happening in the summer time, making them great summer reads. In Return to Freedom, Voices in the Wind, mysterious winds are blowing at Windy Mountain Campground and Resort, and, in the latter half of the book, the Wilkerson family is getting ready to go on a vacation that will take them on a journey they will never forget! Read the first two chapters free here. In River of Secrets, Summer of the Rose, well, the title says about all I can give you without giving too much away, wink, wink. I’ll just say that Anna’s story will take you down a summer road on a journey you won’t soon forget. Read the first two chapters free here. Get yours now and if you know a friend who would be interested in reading these, then by all means, feel free to share this post, Facebook it, Tweet it, or email it!

Oh, and I hope everyone has had a truly great summer, and wish you all the best in whatever road you choose to take! Hopefully, by next summer, Anna will be back to take you on another journey back in time in book 2 of my “Enchanted River of the Rose” series, “Return to the River, Scent of the Rose”! I hope everyone has a great school year! Study hard, drive safe, and when you need a break, read!

      1. Yes, Kathy, I am working on book 2, although I have also been a busy grandma some this past year, as we kept my 4 year old grandson for a while, but I am back at work on these and more. I have been working on getting a couple of other projects out that I’ve been working on for a while (rewrites/editing, etc), but I do plan on getting book 2 out soon, hopefully sooner than later. You can also subscribe here to my blog via the subscribe tab if you haven’t already, and like my Facebook Author page too, and when it does come out, you will be among the first to know!And thanks! Glad you are enjoying it!
