My last blog post was short, but this blog post is really short! This post is just to say a little about my book, Winter Wish, because tomorrow and Wednesday (Feb. 18th and 19th), it is free on Kindle. If anyone is interested, it’s sort of a YA book, sort of a coming-of-age book, set in the north Georgia mountains. Here is a little about it:
What’s in a simple wish? That’s what eighteen-year-old Jessie would love to know. When she wishes upon a star on a cold January night before her final months of high school, she is hoping to find out just where that star will point her. All she really wants to do is stay near her beloved north Georgia mountains, where she has plenty to do taking care of her widower father; talking sense into her needy friend Camille; and spending time with her boyfriend Sean. However, when a dark-haired stranger comes to town, Jessie’s fate changes in ways she could not imagine. And when she finds herself threatened in the same mountains where she once sought refuge, her life is turned entirely upside down.
When I began writing this book three years ago, one of the things I enjoyed was thinking about what it might be like to live in one of the small towns in the mountains in Georgia that I love to visit. So of course, I just had to plan some extra trips up there to “research” the setting! 🙂 I made up the town, but it’s sort of a composite of several places I have loved going to ever the years. A part of me does really wish that I lived some place like the town of Wendall. . . but our home is here, in Marietta.
Lately I have been busy, I mean like really busy, busier than usual. I find myself longing for a trip, just a little one, to the mountains. Ah well, it will have to wait. In the meantime, I will read, at night, when I finally have the time.
I hope you are reading something you enjoy! If you have any interest at all in this book, Winter Wish, you can click on the “Order” link at the top of this page on February 18th or 19th, to go directly to Kindle and download the ebook, or just go directly to Amazon. Whatever you are reading and whatever your real-life setting is, I hope you are enjoying it. Happy reading to you! And thank you for stopping by my blog! I appreciate it so very much!
