In the Corral
    with Carol

News

I’ve been reflecting on the fun times in the last few years and the places I’ve been and the people I’ve met. Some of those appearances for book signings or public readings in Florida included:

First Saturday Festival in Dunnellon
Pine Ridge Equestrian Estates
Citrus County Public Library in Beverly Hills
Crystal River Mall
USA Flea Market in Port Richey
Curves in Dunnellon
Pine Ridge Tea Party
Author Open House
Inverness Book Festival
Author Fest, Inverness

I’ve been busy in Ohio too, with places to go and people to see at:

Hartville Marketplace
Strasburg Pharmacy
A Garden Party, New Philadelphia
Sandusky Marina

Thank you to all who helped set up these venues and to all who stopped by to say hello or to buy a book or two. It was really fun for me!

I’ve been lucky to have Five Star ***** reader reviews from all my web sales markets including Barnes & Noble, Buy Books on the Web.com, and Waldon Books/Amazon.com. Thank you to all who took the time to give me a good rap! I’m pretty sure you’ll like the new Family Favors as well. If your bookstore doesn’t have my book, just ask them to order it…or go to the bookstore section of this web site to get your signed copies directly from me .

To those of you who didn’t see the article in the previous newsletter that was written by Sam Scott, Ocala Star Banner, we’ll rerun the link. I love the picture of my horse, Dizzy, and I, and thank the newspaper for allotting the big space for the at-home interview. Good job, Sam.

The next novel already has a title...Foreign FAVORS. I've got a story going in my head and lots of research to do. This should be very interesting!

This is Author Fest 2010, held at the Lakes Region Library, Inverness, Florida on Saturday, Nov. 6 from 1-4pm.  Twenty authors were invited to participate and the event drew in the public from the whole county.  Book sales were up and it was fun interacting and networking with other authors and the public. Thanks to Helen Vandewalker, our table gave away, as a raffle, a beautiful gift basket...you can see it on the right hand side of the photo. Lots of treats were placed in the basket designed by Helen, who also works as my editor and publicist. THANKS HELEN!!
