Release Date for MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE


I’m excited to announce that I’ve set a release date for MY LIFE AS A MIXTAPE . It will be coming to you NOVEMBER 13th. EEK! I’m super excited. I can’t believe I’ll have THREE books that released this year. I would never have expected that a year ago when I was working on book 2. Thanks to everyone who has made this a possibility including my amazing cover designer, Megan, at Designed with Grace and my new and beloved editor, Jenn at Jenn Lockwood Editing Services.

And did you notice that the release date is the 13th? Thirteen is my favorite number and Taylor Swift’s favorite number. The number 13 get a bad rap by the superstitious folks, so in typical LJ fashion, I’m rooting for the underdog. The release date was an easy decision to make once I saw the calendar staring at me because ya’ll know that Taylor started this book journey for me.

AUDIOBOOK FOR COUNTRY ALBUM

My amazing narrator, Sarah Puckett, has given me a 15-minute sample of the MY LIFE AS A COUNTRY ALBUM audiobook! It was weirdly surreal to hear her Southern accent reading my words aloud. I got chills hearing it. And I was filled with so many complicated emotions. Pride. Humility. Excitement. I can’t wait for her to finish the entire narration. I’ll likely have a better idea on a release date for you in early October.

NEW BOOKS & FUN READS

Here are some books I am excited about that are releasing in September:

AN ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE THING: A NOVEL – by Hank Green

It’s sci-fi (not normally my thing) and coming of age (totally my thing), but it’s by HANK GREEN. Enough said because him and his brother make me laugh and John’s words always fill me with emotions. I have no doubt that Hank’s will also be superb.

THE INK MASTER’S SILENCE (GLASS & STEEL BOOK 6) – by CJ Archer

Historical – Fantasy – Romance . This is the series that introduced me to CJ Archer, and now I’ve devoured almost all of her books. I especially adore all her historical fantasy books. The Emily Chambers Spirit Medium trilogy, The Ministry of Curiosities series, and The Freak House series.

RETURNING TO EDEN – by Katy Ames

Romance – Second Chance. This book was original a serial that I loved like no other soap opera, and then the lovely Katy Ames turned it into a beautiful novel about forgiveness and second chances. Katy also recently released the new covers of her very steamy but suspenseful Tropical Tryst series that you might want to check out.

I’m back at teaching the little first graders, so my reading was curtailed quite a bit this month, but here are a couple that I had the chance to read and enjoy. August Reads:

DAISIES & DEVIN – by Kelsey Kingsley

Romance – friends to lovers. Kelsey’s words always blow me away. If you read her Kinney Brothers, they’ll make you crave a TV show full of Irish brogues. Daisies & Devin is much more than a romance novel, it will make you crave coffee, guitars, and dreams that come true.

MURDER AT THE ICE BALL (LADY KATHERINE REGENCY MYSTERIES – BOOK 3) – by Harmony Williams & Leighann Dobbs

Historical – Mystery. This series is a fun romp into the 1800s with a feminist protagonist, a cast of interesting and entertaining secondary characters, and a delightful pug named Emma who has a penchant for stealing things. All around fun.

ALL YOUR PERFECTS - by Colleen Hoover

Fiction – Divorce. Colleen is such a skilled writer. I fell in love with her books when I read the SLAMMED series. Her last few books have had some strong statements. Strong visuals. And they filled me with lots of conflicting emotions. No matter what side you end up on, her books do exactly what she intends, make you think and make you feel.

Shoot me an email to LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU’VE BEEN READING?

GOODBYE

I’m always amazed when anyone gets this far in my newsletter—THANK YOU! As a writer, I tend to be wordy (Ha!). My birthday is this month, and as it gets closer, I’ll be posting a birthday giveaway on my SM sites, so I hope you’ll take a moment to follow me on one (or all) of them (links below).

In the meantime, I’m off to work on lesson plans for my littles. I hope you have an amazing day.

Happy Reading!
