Hello, everyone. I just wanted to pop in and let you know that Kyra and I are having a book signing at our local library.
On Saturday, September 16th, from 10:00am to 12:00pm at Grifton Public Library in Grifton, NC, we will be celebrating the release of book two in the Spunky’s Magical Adventures series by signing copies of both books.
Stop by to purchase your copies of Spunky and the Wizard’s Chair and Spunky and the Dolphin Palace, or bring your own copies to get our signatures and a personal note from the co-author and illustrator, Kyra Uzzell.
Hope to see you there!

It is Indie Pride Day, and I am proud to support my fellow indie authors from around the world. Indie authors, musicians, and artists may have a bad reputation because they are not with a big-name company, but I say that is bologna! Many of us choose not to go with such companies so we can have the freedom of doing things our way. That does NOT make our work sub-par!
We are passionate about what we do and put 100% into our work, so show your favorite indies some love and share their Facebook pages, Twitter accounts, websites, blogs, etc.
Let’s get the word out and show everyone just how great indies truly are. Use the #indieprideday or #IndieBooksBeSeen hashtags on Twitter today! Visit the Facebook event for Indie Pride Day and discover some new-to-you authors!
We are excited to announce that the second book in the Spunky’s Magical Adventures series is coming soon. Spunky and the Dolphin Palace will be released on May 28th, 2017. We’ll be celebrating the occasion with a Facebook party and everyone is invited. Here is a short summary for the book:
When Spunky the cat jumps on the magical chair after his adventure in Cat World, he expects to go back home. Instead, he finds himself in another strange place where everything, including the animals and plants, is made of candy! Will Spunky ever find the way home to his loving owner?
We hope you will attend the party to enjoy games, fun, and giveaways. Kyra and myself will be there with our own special surprises!
Exciting news is coming in February, the month that is all about showing your affection to those you love. I’m releasing a new book titled Once Upon a Pastry! This is the first in a series of stand-alone stories called Fluffy Folktales; light hearted, clean romances set in a fairy tale world.
Here is the blurb:
Gertrude wants to be the best baker and pastry chef in the city so she makes a deal with Mona the witch: one spell in exchange for her first-born child. The problem is, Gertrude doesn’t have a husband. Or a boyfriend. Or much interest in dating at all.
As the overly dramatic Mona occasionally stops by the flourishing bakery to see about Gertrude keeping up her end of the bargain, both women begin to realize that maybe the deal isn’t what will bring them true happiness. Soon, something more than friendship begins to blossom.
When tragedy strikes, Gertrude finds that she may lose the only family she has left. Is Mona a powerful enough witch to save the city and help the girl she is falling for? Can she let go of her regrets so she can move on to find her happily ever after?
This book will be available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle format on February 1st. Check it out on Goodreads and add to your Want To Read list!
My review for Butters Comes Home by Claudette Melanson
Rating: 5 Stars
A sweet read for young children. The pictures were lovely, the story adorable, and the main character super cute. My three-year-old has a short attention span but sat with me during the reading of this entire book. She just loved the pictures.
If you wish to purchase this book, here is the Amazon link.
