Éclair and Present Danger is Just Around The Corner

May 24th, 2016

Wow. I can hardly believe Éclair and Present Danger (book # 1 in my new Emergency Dessert Squad Mysteries) will release just 2 weeks from today!!

I tell you, June 7th can’t come fast enough for me.

Then again, with everything I’m trying to get done right now, maybe it can. 🙂

Starting June 1st, I’ll be doing a 12 day “virtual tour” with Escape with Dollycas. Each day, the book will be featured on a blog (or several). Sometimes, I’ll have a unique post that tells a little bit about the book from either my perspective or that of one of the characters, and sometimes there will simply be a review of the book by whomever is hosting that day.  You can find out where I am each day by going HERE and scrolling down (the who/where will be on the right hand side).

During the week of June 7th, I’ll also be making five in-person stops at various spots around the country. Details about where I’ll be and when can be found right here on this very page (under “events” on the right).  If you’re in the vicinity of any of these places, I sure would love to meet you.

I’ll be sharing details of everything on my Facebook author page–pictures, fun happenings, etc.  So if you’re on Facebook, be sure to visit my page every day.

And if not, I’ll be sharing things here, as well.

We’ll talk again soon!

A Churn For The Worse Is Now Available

March 2nd, 2016

A CHURN FOR THE WORSEfinalIt’s here! It’s here!

A CHURN FOR THE WORSE is officially out!!!

I’ll be back here, throughout the coming days, to point you towards reviews and guest posts about the book. In the meantime, I hope you have tracked down the book at your favorite bookseller and that you’re enjoying your time in Heavenly with Claire, Aunt Diane, and the rest of the gang.

For now, if you’re on Pinterest, I’ve put up a fun board that kind of shows what I picture in my mind when I think of Heavenly, PA.  You can find that HERE.

Happy Reading!

~Laura
