Welcome to Lori’s Lane for the first post of 2018. We’re in a deep freeze up here in the Midwest, with temperatures below zero Fahrenheit (below -18c). Remember when I used to live in Florida? Believe it or not, I still don’t miss it.
Living on a peninsula wasn’t too unlike living on an island. I didn’t care for it much. There was only one direction out of Florida when hurricanes came.
My friend, Anneli, lived on an island way farther north than Florida with a drastically different climate. She didn’t have to deal with hurricanes, and she had some breathtaking scenery.
I’m very fortunate to have found some wonderful, talented blogging and author friends. I mean, such kind, thoughtful and helpful people.
If I’m being honest, there aren’t too many of them … perhaps a half-dozen, who have really made an impact on my life just through a computer screen.
One of them is Jill Weatherholt. I am honored that today Jill is featuring my novel, Whit’s End. On her blog, you can read what gave me the initial idea for my novel. And, also go there to click on my book and get it on sale for .99 cents this weekend only, January 20 -22 (2017).
Comments are closed here, but I’ll be happy to join in with the comments over at Jill’s blog. Would love to read your thoughts. The link to her post is HERE.
I have some exciting news. My novel, Whit’s End, is now available on CreateSpace in paperback and will be available on Amazon next week. The Ebook version is available now. On December 14th, they’ll be a goodreads giveaway contest for the paperback version. I will post a link when the contest goes live.
Switching gears, on November 1st, I posted about my short story memoir anthology, and gave a glimpse of the first of those four stories titled, Don’t Blink. The second tale in the anthology is titled, Hope Lies in Meatballs. I thought it was a funny and fitting title.
I’m putting up a quick blog post just to let everyone know not to miss this last day my short story memoir anthology, Home Avenue is free. To get it, click on the book cover or the above link. Anyone who has already downloaded and read it, I’d greatly appreciate a review on Amazon and Goodreads.
Note: The above offer ended November 26th. The below sale ends November 28th. Both books ARE available on Amazon though.
Also, don’t miss the the special introductory offer price of .99 cents for my novel, Whit’s End. This special price lasts through Sunday. Reviews would be great for that one too.
I’m excited to learn what you all think of Ava and Meg’s simple yet complicated family lives. Simple, because these are real people living out every day lives, going to work, raising children, paying bills. Complicated, because their family relationships are all screwed up. Ava seems to be forever trying to fix things, while everyone else continues to live in their comfortable misery.
So, get them on special while you can. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
