Heather was kind enough to post the following reviews of ‘The Book of the Wise’ and ‘The Tears of Adina’ on her blog, Krimsuun Pages! Here are a couple blurbs from those reviews:
“It’s a perfect book for parents to read to their children before bed as well as older readers who enjoy a trip back into the world of fantasy.” – Heather, Krimsuunpages, on ‘The Book of the Wise’
“… gripping and exciting … a world full of fantasy and adventure” – Heather, Krimsuunpages, on ‘The Tears of Adina’
Below are one of the pictures Heather posted to Instagram, as well as links to the full reviews and other places where you can find her. Check out her accounts when you have the time and please let her know you stopped by. Thank you again, ma’am; I’m very grateful for you taking the trip to Countryside, and for letting others know what you think of it!
Hope y’all have a wonderful day! We’ll talk soon.Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment October 4, 2016
Hope y’all’s Tuesday is going wonderfully! I’ve had a couple questions recently, and thought you all might be interested in the answers. So here goes …
Q1: Is the third book you’re working on going to be the last book in the series?
A1: No … (I toyed with the idea of leaving it there, but thought y’all might be a bit miffed by that). There are actually seven books planned for the series. If you look pretty close you can see that from parts of the first book. Also, as some of you know, I’m less than a big fan of series that say “there are going to be 3 books and then you end up with 15”, so I have zero intention of changing that number. Feel free to hold me to that, and hopefully that makes more of you excited than it does cry with despair.
Q2: When will the third book be out?
A2: Isn’t that the question of the hour. So, my team may get a teensy weensy bit upset by me talking about this right now, but it’s tentatively set for late next year. As most of you know what my favorite season is by now, it’s (again tentatively) set for then. For those of you who don’t know, that would be FALL!!!
Thanks so much for asking the questions. Please feel free to ask away anywhere, anytime. You can find me here (obviously) and on Goodreads, Instagram, LinkedIn or Facebook too! Always makes my day to hear from y’all! Thanks so much for your support and encouragement of Countryside; it means a great, great deal. Oh, and one last little tidbit. If you’re a fan of paperbacks, I’ve got some good news coming soon!Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments October 3, 2016

So I believe I promised another Journal Post this week about a pair of great reviews for ‘Countryside’ … at least I think I did. At any rate, both of these reviews are by Rachel and posted on her blog Never Too Many Books. If you get a chance to check them out, please do so, particularly the second review on ‘The Tears of Adina’, really a … well you’ll just have to check it out. Below is one of the pictures she posted on her Instagram account about the books as well as the links to her blog posts.
Finally, if you’re just interested in someone to chat books up with, you couldn’t go wrong with Rachel. She’s got a presence quite a few places, so check her out! And thank you again, ma’am, I’m very grateful for your time and your efforts.
Hope y’all have a fantastic day!Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment ← Older posts Newer posts →
