Today is publication day for Beyond the Ripples! Yippee! In addition to three wonderful author endorsements, I am pleased to see the first (of hopefully many) reader reviews to show up on GoodReads and Amazon.
I appreciate Women Writers, Women’s Books for featuring my essay today on their website. When I wrote it I wasn’t particularly thinking about how it leads into my new novel’s lead characters’ actions and thoughts, but oh my….yes, certainly it does. Read the essay, An Event at Midlife: Crisis, Challenge, Breakthrough, or Opportunity?
I hope you will pick up a hard or e-book version of Beyond the Ripples, and/or join me at an upcoming event. You can find the new book online at Powell’s (hopefully on the shelf there soon), IndieBound, and other online sources like Barnes & Noble, and Amazon. Do request it from your favorite bookstore or library, and look for it soon at Portland’s Another Read Through.
Finally, I hope to see you at one of my upcoming events, that I continue to schedule. Upcoming dates include:
- Sunday, May 19 from 2-3:30 pm, Book Launch Party, Willamette Cider and Ale House See Facebook event or Eventbrite.
- Saturday, June 22 from 2-3 pm, Reading and signing West Linn Public Library, 1595 Burns Street, West Linn.
