MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!
Yesterday, I enjoyed the morning at Grumpy’s Peace, Love, & Coffee in Gravette, AR. If you have never visited Grumpy’s, I highly recommend you make the trip. A visit to Grumpy’s is a walk back into the 50’s and 60’s with posters and photos covering the walls (and ceiling) to reflect the popular music and movies of the time. The TV on the wall regularly plays reruns of “Leave it to Beaver” and other shows from that era. Add to that the great coffee and snacks!! And meet Larry Jones, the owner, who is usually relaxing in his recliner.
(Dr. Nancy Jones and Larry Jones, owner of Grumpy’s with me at meet & greet 12/16/23)
A visit to Grumpy’s is a treat for sight and soul. And Grumpy’s has appeared in scenes in my last two books, Dark Deceptions and The Spirit Tree Deceptions. It’s one of those things that I always say, “You just can’t make this stuff up!”
Thank you Grumpy’s for allowing me to visit with you and your customers and share my books with your customers.
Hey Minnesota folks…Just a HEADS UP:
I have just scheduled a location to do a meet & greet for a book signing of my newest novel, The Spirit Tree Deceptions, and having time to visit, too. This will be my only public signing this trip.
We will meet up at Davanni’s in Coon Rapids between 1-3 p.m. on Saturday the 23rd. Address is: 3430 129th Ave. NW, Coon Rapids, MN.
I have reserved the community room and you can order what you wish and visit a bit. (Their hot hoagies are our favorite, but pizza and calzones are also great!)
Just give me a heads up if you’ll be there. Looking forward to having time to visit and share my book!
You’re certainly welcome to join us even if you don’t want a book! It’ll be a Christmas treat to see everyone.
one for a friend, one for a family member, and one for yourself.
All on Amazon. You’ll get them in time for Christmas.
OR see me at one of my scheduled December signings:
Wishing Spring Gallery, Bella Vista, Saturday, December 9, 12-4
December 15, 12:30 pm -2:30 pm
The Kick Off for the Spirit Tree Deceptions on December 1st was a success and well attended! The entire supply of books disappeared and more have been ordered and already have readers waiting. Everyone enjoyed meeting Rosie and David Floyd who did the cover. Rosie did the painting and David did the AI adjustments to make the picture match the story I wrote. Thanks to everyone who joined us! T
