Here is the interview I did on the Doug Dahlgren show on March 3, 2017.
Now that the holidays are finally over, I can get back to my writing cave, complete with a bat. Not kidding. Okay, so he’s a stuffed bat I purchased from Bat World Sanctuary, a wonderful organization.
Anyway, back on track. I’ve sent off a very rough draft of the first book to a new second series about elfin knights. You’ve met some of the characters in my short stories, Yuletide Magic, and Tears of the Past that appeared in Of Mountains and Mysteries.
I’ve also been very busy working on Crimson Dawn, the fourth installment of the Crimson Series, Royce’s story. And it starts off with a bang! Then just to keep the guys on their toes, I’ve added in two miscreant ten-year-olds, one of who happens to be Vaughn and Rose’s daughter Kimber.
It’s that time of year again! The time when people scurry about searching for that unique item or items that would decorate their home, or be the perfect Christmas or holiday gift for Aunt Mary, Uncle Fred, or even themselves. And, yes I’m guilty of this. However, in my defense, I did cross off three very difficult people from my Christmas list. At this year’s Fall Braselton Antique and Artisan Festival. I found truly unique items that I know each person will love. I found jewelry, pottery, writing pens that were carved from rare woods and stones, and I discovered classic novels that have been repurposed into handbags. (The artisan informed me the pages of the books were beyond repair but the leather covers were still in good shape.) I also shared the back deck with several wonderful authors. Had such a blast!!!
Shopping small businesses and attending local festivals allow you to see the talents of your neighbors and friend. It also allows you to give gifts that are unique to the receiver. Gifts that will mean something to that person years from now. So, this holiday season, instead of heading to the malls to do your gift shopping, consider shopping small local business or visiting a local fall or holiday festival. Because tucked beside funnel cakes, pottery, jewelry, and every other form of art, you may stumble upon a local writer. Like me.
I love the fall!!!!
Living in the south, the fall is the best time of year. And yes, I know some of you will be blowing up my twitter account telling me y’all love the other three seasons as well. For me, it’s the fall, for many reasons. First, it’s not as hot as the summer. Second, you don’t have as many seasonal allergies as you do in the spring. And lastly, you have all the fall festivals!
In just over five weeks away, I will be at the Braselton Antique & Artisan Fall festival! The festival starts at 2pm on Friday, October 21 and runs through Sunday, October 23. If you are in the Braselton, Georgia area, stop by. I will be promoting my newest release, Crimson Moon. I will also have copies of my other books.
The Braselton Antique & Artisan festival is a free event filled with over 150 vendors and artisans where you can find something for everyone. There will even be live music.
Join Katie Hart Smith and me at Braselton Gallery this Saturday, August 20, 2016, from 1 to 3 PM. We will be talking about and sign our latest books. Katie’s new book is Aspirations of the Heart. And I will be signing Crimson Hearts and Crimson Dreams. Come and help us celebrate Braselton Georgia’s 100th Birthday!
