Celebration of the South Tour

The first stop I made on my Celebration of the South tour was Love Our Readers Luncheon. Each February, I co-host an event that spotlights the south. This year we met at the Marietta Educational Garden Center, a historical home near Kennesaw Mountain.








We celebrated in true southern style by eating on fine china, sipping peach tea, and talking about all things southern. It's an amazing time, and we have so many returning readers each year! If you live in driving distance to Kennesaw, GA, you might want to check this out. Next year, our keynote will be Patti Callahan Henry!





The next stop on my Celebration of the South tour will be in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Romantic Times Convention Magnolias and Moonshine County Fair, where you’ll fall in love with the South.

This isn't just one event, it's a HUGE project involving twenty New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon bestselling authors who joined together to bring you a taste of Southern charm. There is something for everyone with these ten sweet and ten sizzle contemporary romance novellas. You’ll enjoy stories with cowboys, weddings, county fairs, lovers reunited, and much more.


Step into the world of the South and hear the cicadas, taste the mint juleps, see the stars, and smell the magnolias. A new novella will be released daily beginning April 10th through April 30th. My contribution to the series is SASSY BRIDE.



Abandoned by her parents and left to raise two sisters, Sadie Dixon has spent her life sacrificing for her family. When the eldest son of the rich Dumont family, Ashton, wins her heart and hand in marriage, he showers her with every advantage money can buy. But when their worlds collide, Sadie faces the first sacrifice she isn't sure she can make: leaving her family and lifelong dreams of owning a bakery behind for the man she loves.

For a chance to win an advanced reader copy of The Sassy Bride, tell me a country colloquialism that you've heard. :) One lucky commenter will win!

  5. I'm Kentucky born and raised and and we often drop the Gs when we say certain words. There was one piece of advice offered to me quite often when I was growing up and I still try to heed it. "REMEMBER YOUR RAISIN'!" Don't forget that there are appropriate ways to act and behave and I should always act like a lady!
    Blessings!!
