Day After Release Day

So I spent my official release day training accountants then flying back from Irvine, but hey, Rumble's out and that's all that matters!

A couple of new items:

My friend, Kelly Parra, does fabulous interviews with authors and this month she's posted an interview with me - check it out!

My Booklist review came in last week, but I am woefully behind on posting. Here's what it said:

"The worst crime Deputy Dorie Berenger usually faces in Gator Bait is Maylene Thibodeux weaving about with too much liquor in her and too few clothes on her. This time Maylene's troubles herald events far more serious. An alligator winds up in her pool stoned on heroine, and the drug trail leads to Gator Bait itself with big-city DEA Agent Richard Starke hot on the trail. Funny thing is, there could be an even bigger problem: Dorie's feeling pretty hot for Agent Starke. Part of the growing romantic mystery genre, in which romance and mystery tie the knot with chick-lit's blessing, this debut novel is chock-full of quirky small-town characters and
an entertaining, offbeat love story. The mystery pulls its weight, taking readers on a ride as intriguing and wild as a flat-bottom-boat race in the bayou. "

My review is up on Romance Reviews today. Check it out.

My new contest for the Dooney is up on FreshFiction and my friend Ally Carter blogged about Rumble's release yesterday! Thanks Ally!

That's all I can think of for now and a mountain of paperwork from the last two weeks of training awaits me. (sigh) More later!

Just wanted to let you know how much I loved Rumble On The Bayou. Add another author to my must have list and keeper shelf.
