The Penny Tree gets 4 and 1/2 stars...

Okay, it's 18 days before publication, and that means it's all about the book, so I hope you'll humor me for doing a few mega-phone blog posts like this one! My editor phoned yesterday to let me know that Romantic Times Magazine just gave The Penny Tree 4.5 stars out of 5, which really is wonderful news. (They also gave my debut novel, The Tin Box, 4.5 stars).

Beyond that, I'm gearing up to do a bunch of readings, starting with two in my home town of Athabasca, Alberta on April 11th & 12th at the Seniors Center and The
Brew House.

And the best part is that I get to crawl up out of my cave (see photo above, which is what my office feels like these days versus the one on your left, which is what it really looks like!)

I read TIN BOX and loved it, so can't wait to see what kind of story PENNY TREE is.

P.S. The cave office is nice
but yours looks cozier.

Hey Holly is being modest. If you look at the ratings there 41/2 stars is the MOST THEY GIVE!!!!
