Spring is officially here, and my office is buzzing with book news! I’ve finished writing “The Summer Guests” and book tour plans are coming together quickly! I love this way this novel turned out and I’m so excited to share it with you. It will be officially available June 11th. If you want to see if I’m coming to a place near you, check out my events list.
I’m excited to see the novel already receiving some book love! One of my favorite magazines, Southern Living, just included “The Summer Guests” on its list of 25 Beach Reads Perfect for Summer. And, Southern Living recently hosted an exclusive cover reveal, which included a brief excerpt here.
“The Summer Guests” is a book about hurricane evacuation. An important question posed in this story is: what should I take with me? What do I treasure?
I live on a barrier island in South Carolina, so I’ve experienced the stress of evacuating many times. Southern Living allowed me to share some of my personal thoughts on the issue of evacuation and how it relates to my novel. Read it here. And please feel free to share your thoughts about your own experiences. Are you prepared to evacuate if you had to? What treasures would you take?
