Braselton Antique & Artisan Fall Festival

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.

Crimson Moon!

Book three, Crimson Moon is shaping up. So far it’s on schedule for an October release. My editor has already sent it back for the first round of revisions. Then yesterday, I spent nearly four hours with the cover artist. I love the preliminary cover she has come up with. Every time Gina Dyer creates a cover, it’s always better than the previous one!



I’m the person who has a bookshelf of ‘Keepers,’ books that I have read and reread so many times I know the stories by heart. But they are old friends who I love to revisit.

I’m the person who is the last to try something new, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram just to name a few. Yes, I’m that person who’s husband had to pry my old flip phone from my hands because it was no longer compatible with any system, while I kicked and screamed, throwing a temper-tantrum that rivaled any two-year-old . I think he donated my phone to the Smithsonian.

With that said, I am again venturing out with something new. This will be my last post on this site, but fear not. I’m not going anywhere! Thanks to Annette Walden Mason of Painted Lady Enterprises, I have this wonderful new website!

My other wonderful new, for all of you who have told me how much you love Rowan and Izzy, from Tears for the Past, my short story in Of Mountains and Mysteries: A North Georgia Paranormal & Mystery .You will be happy to know that they will be back with another adventure in Kissed by Dragon Fire, a new short story to be released in a new yet to be named anthology by Gilded Dragonfly Books.

In addition, I’m busy putting the finishing touches on my third stand-alone in the Crimson Series, Crimson Moon. I hope it will be out by October 2016. Crimson Moon will follow Tristan fights to protect his five-year-old niece, Shelby.
