New Reader Comments - Email from Rachel of Covington, LA

Know you don't remember me - but we were both hosting a booth at the Mandeville, La. Castine Center (Junior League of Greater Covington Spring Market).I bought both of your books and promised to write and let you know of my thoughts. (blond, female, selling cajun food, "My biggest fan in Covington" which I am sure you signed all your books the same). I devoured them in 2 days but due to my busy schedule, I am just now getting back to you.

I loved the multi-storied and multiple lines of thought working throughout the books - I love the fact that your books make the reader work for the understanding. I love that you make the reader focus on your words and think!!! Very few writers in this day and age actually draw in the reader and make them pay attention to the verbage. I loved the read of both of them and just when I thought I knew where you were going- you changed direction. I really appreciate your ability to outwit me on the endings!!!! I usually can read a book, even James Patterson, and know "Who done it" about 100 pages before the end. You kept me wondering (I won't say guessing, because I couldn't)

Seeing that I am now a true believer in your writing, can I get an advanced copy of your next one????

I would love to submit a review to the local book clubs before it comes out.
Thank you for the experience - I loved it!!

2018 MISSISSIPPI BOOK FESTIVAL

August 18, 2018, marked the fourth annual Mississippi Book Festival, an expanding and highly energetic literary lawn party gracing the beautiful, oak – draped grounds and surrounding buildings of the historic Mississippi State Capitol in downtown Jackson. The first two years of the festival, I worked as a volunteer in the Author Panelist room, having the opportunity to meet the visiting authors as well as local writers scheduled to present. In 2017 and again this year, I joined other writers outside in the Authors Alley tent on Mississippi Street, bordering the south lawn of the Capitol. This was an amazing opportunity to visit with many of my readers and to meet many new ones. Lots of signed books were discussed and placed in the hands of readers that Saturday in Authors Alley. Mid-August weather in Mississippi with its 90+ degree humidity will never dampen literary spirits, and fortunately we escaped the forecasted downpour! Thank you to Holly Lange and the other organizers and supp…
