One Month to Release Day, and Novelist Nesting Is Underway

This nest atop a speaker on our back porch has sheltered a few families this summer.

My youngest was born in August twenty-three years ago. And while the birth of a book baby pales in comparison to that of a live human, I can report some anxiety and nesting activity in advance of the August 15 arrival of my second book, AT WAVE’S END.

At least my feet aren’t swollen this time!

In any event, with release day less than one month away, you won’t want to miss these AT WAVE’S END giveaways and events:

My publisher is giving away 100 Kindle copies of AT WAVE’S END on Goodreads here. Please remember to add my August release to your Goodreads TBR!

I’m giving away three signed paperback copies of my debut novel, DELIVER HER, on Goodreads here. Enter by July 23, 2017.

Did you know that AT WAVE’S END was inspired in part by a “Win a House” essay contest? Read how this competition led to a novel.

And finally, I’m taking AT WAVE’S END on the road:

Monday, August 21: 6:30 pm, Bethany Beach Books in Bethany Beach, Delaware
Thursday, August 31: 6 pm, BookTowne in Manasquan, NJ.

More dates to come. Event updates here.

One last thing: Thank you for all of your support. None of this would be possible (or worth it) without you, my readers! On that note, I’m looking for several more readers to join my advance review team, or “street” team, as they say in the biz. These readers post honest Amazon and Goodreads reviews in trade for free books, pre-release copies, and other goodies. If you’re interested, leave a comment below with your email address, or email me at


P.S. I encourage you to visit the newly launched Lake Union Authors Facebook page, where my fellow LU authors and I share book news, giveaways, sneak peeks and more. It’s a great venue to chat with writers, discover new reads in women’s fiction, historical fiction, suspense and more, and get the stories behind the books. I’m hosting the page the week of August 13…come visit!

Don’t forget to
pre-order AT WAVE’S END
in paperback,
Kindle or audio format!
