PowerBall mania is EVERYWHERE!   My version of the lottery is to GIVE AWAY 30 paperback copies of Heaven To Betsy (Emily #1).   Enter on Amazon  to WIN.  Odds are really good…much better than PowerBall and it costs you nothing.
I’m in the final days of the last rewrite, of the last re-read, of the last everything before Hell To Pay (Emily #3) goes to the editor.  It’s a trying time.  It’s a good time, but trying and nerve racking.  Books are like babies, eventually you just have to let them fly.  You can pre- order this baby here: Pre-Order Hell To Pay
Short blog this week as we are coming off of our incredible, inspiring writers retreat from last weekend here in Nowheresville and trying to make H2P deadline.  I wanted to answer the Book Club question about AVA, by me and by Ava.   Here’s a quick Video –
