Just past the halfway mark on the Blog Tour with Loving the and Grace Without Grace, Stumbling into Romance. Lots of good comments and bloggers from all over the world! 

I did have one moment of sadness when I found Amazon made a mistake on my delivery date for the paperbacks. I take the books to book signings, and here, locally, to the Farmer's Market on Saturdays. 

I was supposed to have the first order on Monday, but they let me know that the delivery date was posted in error. It's next Monday, September 16th. 

That means that I won't have them for the Market until Saturday, September 21st. But it works, right? 

I hope to see my local friends and fans then, or any time through the end of October when the Market ends.

Meanwhile, tune in to the Tour! See what's going on.

Here's the latest blog, Beautiful Blessings 86. It's one of many lovely blogs that have posted this last week.

Just click the link below, enter the contest it you'd like, and then follow the link to Lovingthebook and click on conversation. It should take you to all of the other blog posts.
I meant to put this in a week ago, but we had one heck of a week after the cover reveal day.

My sister-in-law came to visit from Southern California, and with only a week for her to get to know our Wild Rivers' Coast area, we had to hustle to see everything she was dying to see--and we were dying to show her.

Around us is some of the most pristine forest in the world, a cold rain forest, but it is a rain forest, some of the most rugged (and in our case undammed) rivers in the country, and the most spectular coastline.

So here a few picks!

Battery Point Lighthouse--still working and manned 24/7.
On the beat just before crossing over to the lighthouse. It was foggy at this time, but the gray beyond the bushes is the ocean.
Beautiful vista from near Endert's Beach south of Crescent City.

A gorgeous road through Trees of Mystery in Klamath California
From the Gondola at Trees/Mysery.

Again from the Gondola, and if there wasn't fog, you'd see the ocean in the far distance. Still breathtaking, right?
Sister in law couldn't get over how big, beautiful and unique these toppled giants' roots were.

Progress can be really cool! I'm so excited. I've worked hard to put the finishing touches on my next romance novel. If you've clicked the "new book" tab, you've already learned a little bit about it. In fact, if you've seen it and then come back, you won't see "new tab," you'll see Contemporary Romance instead. And inside is...

The title: Grace Without Grace Stumbling Into Romance. (Poor clumsy Grace.)

Now for the exciting stuff! REAL DATES!

The Cover Reveal is set for August 26th! The book will be ready for pre-orders on Amazon that day.

The full release date for the book with Amazon is September 6th. Awesome, right? I can hardly wait. I'm so excited to see if everyone loves reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Everyone on my newsletter should get the info, so be sure your name is on the list.

If you're reading this, you have my blog info, but for friends you'd like to share this with, the address is

Tune in again soon to see what else has happened. You never know. Life is full of twists and turns, isn't it?

I do have a couple more pictures I'd love to share. First: some of the flowers my amazing fuchsias have produced. Aren't they beautiful? Nature just amazes me.

Second: My father's is quite a man. He's lived a long time, seen a lot of things. His mind is sharp, even if he can't move as quickly as he used to. He had an admirable career, inventing jet engines and their parts, etc., for the United States Air Force. I'm not allowed to share some of what he did because then he'd have to kill me to protect national security. LOL. He drives a red camaro, reads his Kindle every day, can cruise the web with the best of us, and still has quite a mind. He amazes me. We just celebrated his 92nd birthday recently. It was so fun. Congrats, Dad! 
Love you for always. 


This man reminds me that people aren't useless just because they've got a few years under their belts. There are people half his age who don't think clearly, so aging isn't an excuse for discounting opinions, ideas, or needs. Respect for older generations has been an earmark of a good society for thousands of years. Failing to do so has heralded the fall of nations, too. We need to keep that in mind.
