As this year-like-no-other continues, so does book awards season. First newsboy: the delight– Seven Aprils has just achieved finalist status in the Laramie Award for Americana fiction, and the Chatelaine Award for Romantic fiction. Wow, thought, I…Lovely Bellingham Washington, here, I come for the Chanticleer International Conference and Awards dinner! That was back in April…until it was moved to September. Now plans are for the whole shebang to go into Zoomlandia. But, stay tuned, of course!
How I will treasure my friends and family in person when Covid-19 is done with us!
I hope you are faring well and escaping into good stories!
Me, I’m looking for my tiara…one can never overdress for an awards ceremony via Zoom.
During these times, we turn to books to raise our spirits and give us comfort. My new novel Mercies of the Fallen is set in another perilous time in America’s history — the Civil War. Ursula and Rowan are both fallen people, plagued with traumatic pasts but facing their troubled times with courage and heart. I hope you’ll find their story uplifting.
“Civil War history, romance, intrigue, danger, and love meld together in a story any lover of historical fiction or romance will find hard to put down” –Eileen O’Finlan, author of Kelgeen and Children of Erin
