Bye-Bye Summer, Hello....?
Hi FRIENDS of HALLIE subscribers!
How was your summer? I hope it was wonderful. I also hope you had a chance to enjoy a good book, a sunny beach, and lots of time with your loved ones.
I've had a very busy and eventful summer. Here are just a few of the highlights:
Longtime FRIENDS of HALLIE subscribers may remember my 6/2/21 blog post entitled A Season For Everything, as it was a tribute to both my daughter's wedding and the passing of our family dog, Lucy Belle.
Well...Bree and her husband, Phil, became the proud parents of a golden retriever! Guess what that makes me? You guessed it! Meet my grand dog, Lola.
Lola's personality is every bit as endearing as Lucy's, however, that's where the similarity ends.
Lucy only weighed eleven pounds whereas Lola already weighs fifty!
Lucy was persnickety and prissy while Lola is happy-go-lucky. She's also a bit of a Ga-loop! She digs holes, eats grass, and refuses to let her Nana (that's me) lead her on her walks. She blames it on those flirtatious butterflies and pesky leaves, but I know better.
In other news (and for those who often ask about 22-year-old Patches) we had a terrible scare in June. Because of a series of ailments and her gradual decline, it was with heavy hearts that we took her to the vet. Thanks to a Hail Mary by Dr. Carl at Equestrian Woods Animal Clinic, she received a massive boost of antibiotics and pain/anti-inflammatory meds, and within two days she was feeling much better!
She is now THRIVING and probably on her 6th or 7th life. Of course, if all you had to do every day was eat, drink, nap, get brushed...and REPEAT...you'd be feeling pretty swell as well.
In June, my husband and I celebrated 30 years of marriage! I know, that's a long time, but honestly, each year gets better and better, so I reckon we'll stay together :)
Check out the fun T-shirts I bought us for The Big Day. And you can probably guess who is posing next to us. Hint: Ga-Loop.
So....I guess that's about it.
You're right, it's THAT time again. Cover release time. Title time. Shady Gully time. Book 3 time!
I can hardly contain my excitement for this book. I had such a wonderful time writing this story. I laughed. I cried. I rewrote. I laughed some more, cried some more...rewrote some more.
And the cover. Oh my. I think it's my FAVORITE!
The story takes place a good seven years after Paint Me Fearless, and two years after Wolfheart, and a lot has changed in Shady Gully since the fiery conclusion of book 2. You won't want to miss this one!
Because I'm partial to my FRIENDS of HALLIE subscribers, I'll do the COVER REVEAL here FIRST!
Stay tuned and please, tell your friends about my books. Encourage them to leave reviews and sign up for my newsletter/blog.
All new subscribers are automatically entered into the Freebie drawing, and if I draw their name, I'll ask them who referred them, and if they say YOU, well...YOU'LL GET A FREEBIE AS WELL.
The celebration is coming!
P.S. Congrats to new FRIENDS of HALLIE subscriber, D. Jennings, who chose an ebook of Wolfheart as her FREEBIE. Welcome to the family!
