Tour Dates for Blackberry Winter!

Here are the dates set for the Blackberry Winter book tour! It’s a little shorter than usual due to the fact that I have three little boys who need their mama around. There were lots of cities and book stores I really wanted to visit, and it was excruciating to say no, but I am a mother first, and I know everyone understands that. There will be a time and a place one day in the future when my babies won’t need me as much as they do now, and I will happily travel far and wide. But, that time is not right now. 🙂 Still, look at all the fun places I get to visit this fall! Will you come meet me? I would love it!

    I just finished your third book and am completely enamored! I fell deeply in love with your writing with “Violets” and pre-ordered “The Bungalow.” As soon as I read it, in three days, I looked for your next one. I pre-ordered it too! Not only are you an amazing story writer, and I love how you always have a mystery from times past, but you also know how to reach your readers in a way I have not experienced in a very long time. As a woman that has lost a child, I was moved deeply by the sentiments in the story and I appreciate your delicacy with those emotions. I loved that you brought Aunt Bee and Emily into the story for Aunt Bee is probably one of my favorite characters from any book! Thank you for sharing your stories and your talent! I am VERY MUCH looking forward to reading more.

    God bless you and your family,
