Last night I had a fabulous launch party at the great indie bookstore, Reeds Gumtree in downtown Tupelo. Take a look at the pictures!

A crowd gathers for the launch party

I look forward to another great party at Barnes & Noble in the Tupelo Mall this Saturday from 2-4. I’ll be serving up barbecue and sweet tea. If you’re in the area, do come.

Next week I start a tour that will take me through Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi. Please do check the appearances page to see if I’m coming to your hometown. Also, I’ll be posting on FB and Twitter every day to let you know where I will be signing, so do follow me on those sites. I look forward to seeing you!

To celebrate the publication of The Sweetest Hallelujah I’m running a contest that is exclusive to this blog. The prize will be your choice of a $100 bookstore gift card or a Nook or a Kindle. Just send your name, address and email address along with a receipt, if you have one, to Promotions, P. O. Box 605, Mooreville, MS 38857. No purchase is necessary to enter. Winner will be announced here on August 30.

Also, I’ll be giving away three signed first edition copies of The Sweetest Hallelujah to three people who leave comments on this blog this month. This contest is running simultaneously on Fresh Fiction. Winners will be announced here at the end of this month.Checking out the Harlequin bookmark at the launch party

    Love The Sweetest Halleujah. This was such a great read. It really makes you stop and think about what you would do in that situation. You have a child and you know your life is coming to an end. The time era that this takes place made it a very brave but difficult dicision. This book had twists and turns with every page. I laughed, cried and shouted hallejah all while reading this wonderful book. The characters are so alive. I want to sit on the front porch with all of them and have a glass of sweet tea! Huge hearts and big lessons

    I loved your book! I read “Lay That Trumpet in My Hands” and “The Help”. When I saw a flyer on Book Page recommending your new book, it said, “If you liked “The Help”…………….But if readers liked “Lay That Trumpet…”, they will really enjoy your book.

    • Patti, thanks for putting my novel in such high cotton! When I was in Fairhope this past weekend, I picked up my grandson’s copy of that book. I look forward to reading it.

  6. I actually got the chance to meet you in Atlanta! And I am so excited to say one of my team members is in Tupelo! How awesome!! Maybe I’ll travel there to teach in the near future 🙂

    I was in Tupelo Ms on Saturday Aug 3 visiting my parents and attended the book signing and reading at the Tupelo Barnes and Noble. The barbeque and sweet tea was delicious! I couldn’t wait to get back home to Birmingham ,Al to start reading Sweetest Hallelujah. I stayed up late last night reading and can’t wait to finish. This is so good I can’t put it down. Excellent book! Sending the word to my friends to come see you in Birmingham Al August 8.
