Road Warriors for The Summer Wind

Vero Beach
Pawleys Island
Ocean Isle Beach

Big cities, small towns.  That's a short list of all the places my sister Ruthie and I heading over the next few weeks.  We're burning up highway miles right now for a 30-city book tour to celebrate this week's release of THE SUMMER WIND.  This is a special time for me, magical even, as a writer--meeting fans, re-connecting with booksellers, swapping stories and celebrating together another published novel.

We are all in this together.  Readers make it possible for me to live out my passion as a profession.  I'm grateful everyday.  Booksellers have the extraordinary power of paring their customers with the perfect book.  Titles they believe are interesting, memorable, thought-provoking, even life-changing.

Thank you for your literary support.  Thank you for turning out in big numbers at these special events.  From luncheons, to receptions, and after-hours gatherings. I hope you can join me at a book tour event.  Meet my sister too!  The complete tour schedule is on my website.  Let's toast together...celebrating the arrival of THE SUMMER WIND and the official start of the summer season.

If this book tour is nowhere near your neck of the woods this go-round, feel free to recommend your favorite bookstore to me for a future book signing event.  Maybe it'll be on my list of stops for the 2015 summer book tour.

I'll write more from the road soon.  Thank you!


  1. I guess booksellers do have the power of "paring" although that is probably not in your best interest ☺ I am mid way in "Summer Wind" and enjoying every page..thank you for sharing your talent. Enjoy your road trip.

  2. I haven't read these books yet, but have them on my TBR list. I wish I lived close to your book signing tour stops, but I do send you good wishes. Have a great summer with your sister!

  3. Inkwood Books, Tampa Florida would love to see you and your books! Thanks for your writing such good books and we love you. Elizabeth Hildenstein, Gulfcoast-- Tampa Florida

  4. I was unable to make it to the Greenville, SC or Hendersonville, NC signings this year. The week was just a very busy one. As I read the book (which I LOVED), I realized how much I missed the back stories you give when you speak. I also miss the little hints you give about the next book in the trilogy! I will definitely be at next year's events!

  5. Do we really have to wait another year for #3 in the trilogy??? I just finished The Summer Wind and I'm not sure I can hold on so long!! I've read many (most) of your books and just love your writing. I started in about 2003 with Skyward and I have been reading you ever since. Thanks for sharing your stories with us!!

  6. I concur, don't want to wait. I was sad to get to the end of The Summer Wind, wish I would have known it was part of a trilogy, but it read just fine on it's own!
