Ann Stone and Mary Sellers were the first two to click FOLLOW at the bottom of my new blog and they win a copy of “Jaybird’s Song!” Yahoo… Hadn’t even thought to have a contest, but they are the perfect winners… classy ladies and wonderful friends — and I think they will like my book.
(BTW, I’m thinking about round trip prizes to Paris for the next 10 followers. Just thinking about it…)
A little about Jaybird: It’s the story of fictional Josie Flint and it’s told in two parts — in the mid ’60s when she’s a young teenager growing up in Atlanta and 35 years later when her beloved grandmother dies. There’s some family drama (natch), coming-of-age kind of fun, and it’s all shrouded with the turbulence of the Civil Rights movement in the background. I think it will make you laugh and cry a bit and I think readers will enjoy it.
So click FOLLOW. I think you’ll find it in the bottom right corner of the blog. (Subliminal message: Eiffel Tower) After years of avoiding it, I’ve realized that blogging is fun and I have a lot of things I want to share.
For example, updates on my book as we get closer to launch date, including the fun weekend-long focus group held a few weeks ago…. My girls J and J, no doubt, including our getaway last weekend… Real estate fun… Life with the Red Rabbit… General musings.
But no politics. And no bad words.
