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