Last Blast of Summer

Here it is, almost the end of August. Sigh. Summer is my season, so I’m always a little bit sad as it inches closer to the end of the month. For me, September signals the end of the best time of year and hints at cooler — colder — days ahead.

But I’m not giving in just yet! I’m clinging to the sunny days as long as I can — lunches with friends, a few hours at the pool as I can get them, and a book sale! In honor of the one-year anniversary of my sweet romance “The Story Between Us,” my publisher has put the ebook on sale for just $1.99. Grab it now, then settle in with a cold beverage in your favorite reading spot and enjoy another summer read!

The book is available on Amazon, Apple Books, Kobo and the Barnes & Noble online store.

Happy reading to all! Enjoy the final couple of weeks of the sunshine season!
