Good morning, my wonderful readers! I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for all of your support of Slightly South of Simple. The five-week official tour was an absolute blur of fun and excitement, and I have been so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for this book! I am so grateful to all of you for reading and spreading the word. It means the world to me and is why I get to continue doing what I love.
I cannot believe it, but Slightly South of Simple is a National Bestseller, hitting bestseller lists from Barnes & Noble to Bookscan, Southern Indie to Southern Pines and spending weeks on smaller bestseller lists in places like Salisbury, NC (my fab hometown and home of South Main Book Co.) and Bethlehem, PA. Fifteen weeks after its release, Slightly South is still holding its own on many of these lists. I’m pinching myself every day and can’t thank you enough for all your support!
I’m so grateful for all of your kind emails and messages. They make my day every single day and your kindness is so appreciated! If you have read my latest, I would be so thrilled if you had a second to review Slightly South of Simple on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Reviews help authors so much.
Also, I will be releasing more details about THE SECRET TO SOUTHERN CHARM, book 2 in the Peachtree Bluff series very, very soon. What I can say is that it will be out Spring 2018, and I can’t wait! We already have many of the tour dates in place, so if you would like your home/shop/town to be on The Secret to Southern Charm tour then please let me know! I would love to see you!
I am taking a few weeks off from traveling but do have some extremely fun events coming up for late summer and fall, including my first book trip to the West Coast! I would love to see you there!
