Ho ho holiday shopping!

Greetings! This blog is more of a newsletter of past and future events that evolve around some sort of shopping. Gotta love retail therapy! Make sure you reach the end for the special GIVEAWAY!


I'm pleased to announce that my very first in-person event as a published author at the Hope Community Church Bazaar on November 9 was a success! I was so nervous in the beginning to the point of shaking. Fortunately, after my first signature, I was fine.





Saturday, November 30 from 1 to 4 pm at the Book Nook in Boyertown, PA

Multi-published author, Will Carpenter and I will be autographing our books that we will have for sale. Will is also a local writer who published two Amish tales, and a collection of works from the Boyertown Bulletin called The Path that May.


I will also feature a Book Bundle which includes matching milkshake earrings and necklace with a sterling silver neck chain. This milkshake motif is in keeping with the front cover of Not Again and the milkshake theme throughout the novel. Hurry, while supplies last!!






Thursday, December 5 from 9 am to 7 pm, I will be participating in the Jolly Holiday Facebook Author Party.

In the spirit of the 12 Days of Christmas, starting December 1 though the 12th, a different author each day will feature their book(s).

Saturday, December 7 an all day Direct Sales Event will take place in my group, Maria's Muses: Inspirational, Christian & Close-to-the-Heart Readers.

Chocolate, books & gadgets, oh my!

Authors will be showcasing their books in addition to the products and services that will be featured in hour increments throughout the day.


Here's a list of your favorites: Tupperware, Thirty-One, Pampered Chef, Cocoa Exchange, LeggingGirl & more!


Yours truly reserved the 4 pm slot, so pop in to see what goodies I will be sharing. Be sure to join in on the festivities to buy those special Christmas presents or treat yourself.
