Thank you everyone for your support! Your kind words of encouragement mean so much to me. I have been feeling a mixture of exhilaration over chasing one of my long held dreams and anxiety over being way out of my comfort zone. But I know with wonderful family and friends like you, I can't go wrong. Plus, double thanks to anyone who has purchased the book. As of today, I have sold 17 copies ... and counting! Don't forget to post a review if you enjoyed reading it (and I sincerely hope you do).
Moving forward, I am in the process of trying to get noticed. If anyone has a suggestion on how I can promote my novel or even this blog, please leave a comment. I have a fan page entitled Going Barefoot on Face Book, I am planning to create a book trailer that I will post all over my sites and You Tube and I am in the process of developing book club discussion points along with ideas for Going Barefoot book club gatherings. Suggestions about any or all of these topics would be much welcomed.
Well, back to writing that second novel. Here's a sneak peek: It's entitled Secrets, Lies and Apple Pies (though I've toyed with calling it Secrets, Lies and My Fat Thighs). Just know this: I'm jam packing it with story twists that will keep you guessing, plenty of comical situations and a few tender moments. Here's what I can tell you so far: Meredith's life comes to a sudden halt when she accuses her husband of having an affair with a close family friend. It is the same day her car slides out of control on an icy road and collides with a tree. Now living with her mother, Meredith discovers shocking secrets hidden by years of lies.
Again, much love and appreciation to everyone, especially my family and friends!
