Return to Quail Crossings Book Tour is Over

I never know what to say when a book tour ends. It is always such a bittersweet moment. Sweet
because not being on tour allows me to spend more time with my family, friends, and on my works in progress. Bitter because I truly love doing book signing and meeting my readers, both new and old.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came out and supported me over the last nine months. I hope the books you bought have brought you as much joy, as I had while writing them.... To all the organizers and event planners, thanks for all the long hours, hard work, last minute questions, and giving me a place to share my writing with your people. To every fan that has taken a few moments to say, “I loved it!”, you have no idea how much that means to me. To my return readers, y’all keep me motivated. Your encouragement is a huge driving force to write even when my muse is off playing in the daisies.

This summer I will be spending some quality time with both my family and Missing Quail Crossings. I am working hard on this book for y’all and appreciate the reduced pace so I can meet my fall launch deadline. Book signings will resume at the end of July at the Christian Indie Authors Conference in Davenport, Iowa.

Thanks again for all your love and support,
