And I'm back!

I have been waiting a while to write this blog and I am so happy to finally be able to let you know about my re-launch of “Blue Mountain Sky,” the first book in my Smoky Mountain Mist series.

I have been granted the rights from MRP, my original publisher. The book is back for sale under Thunder Ridge Publishing on Amazon in the Kindle store and will soon be available in paperback once again as well. I have updated the story and have an amazing new cover designer, Rachel Rhule. If you have time, go check it out by clicking on the cover above. Didn't she do an amazing job?!

If you are looking for a graphic designer I highly recommend her. You can get in touch at

The new cover for “Red Morning Glory” is complete as well and I am working to get the story updated so I can repost that book on Amazon also.

And for all you VERY patient readers of this series, book three “Dawn’s Gray Light” is in final (I mean it) editing. Rachel is working on the cover and I will blog again when books two and three are released.

So . . . one more new thing in my life, I have been asked to write a weekly column for Historic Union County. Yep. You guessed it. I am a freelance photojournalist again. If you'd like to read about Union County's history click on this link and sign up for the weekly newsletter.

There is always something interesting to read about in Union County. And if you subscribe, it costs you nothing but it helps the owner of the newspaper get the word out. Just sayin' If you know an interesting person with history in Union County feel free to let me know. They might just make the paper.

Thanks to all of you who have been so loyal and complimentary about this series. As you've stuck with me in my writing career, it is my hope that you agree that I have become a better writer with each book. For those who have been waiting for “Blue Mountain Sky” to be available again in the Kindle store on Amazon, today is the launch! Clicking on the cover above will take you directly to Amazon where you can purchase the book for $2.99.

As I have asked before, please leave a review after you read one of my books. When I received the rights back for these books all of the reviews that had been left on Amazon when MRP owned the rights are now gone, so I have no reviews showing. I know it’s asking a LOT, but those of you who left reviews before, if you could do that again I would be so grateful. It helps Amazon recognize me and offer specials and promotions for my books. Reviews also help other readers decide about purchasing my books.

I know I always say it, and it’s true, you guys are awesome!
