New launch, Pensters Group, and Bouchercon on the agenda

cj Sez:  My romantic suspense Choosing Carter is part of  the More than Friends bundle of romance novels that hits all the outlets tomorrow, Sept 19, at 99 cents! That’s six, count ‘em, six romance novels for under a buck!

Hours of entertainment for 99 cents . . . the best and cheapest price in town.

And when you’ve finished reading a book, please take a few moments to leave the author a review on Amazon. We’d love to know what you think. 

Last Saturday, I was honored to speak to the Pensters Group, a marvelous group of writers who meet in Fairhope, AL. I was also asked to judge the entries into their monthly contest … poetry and prose.

What a treat to read the efforts of some seriously good writers, and how difficult it was to select the first, second, and honorable mention entries. At the end of their 2016-2017 year, Pensters plans to publish an anthology comprised of the top three entries for each month, so these authors will soon be able to claim a publication credit. Congratulations to all!  

You can find out more about Pensters at and on Facebook at PenstersWriting (select the one with the circle symbol, their brand-new logo).

I’m feeling a bit maudlin today. Not sure why. Maybe it’s the heat and humidity that keeps dragging on in Mobile dragging me down. Whatever the reason, I was surfing through some old posts and found one in July 2014 about my grandson heading off for his first year of law school. This summer, he headed off for his final year. As in 2014, the event reminds me how fast time really does fly when you’re having fun. 

I moved to Alabama to be near my grandkids, and don't you know, they grew up. (sigh) Too soon, I say. Not soon enough, says he. I miss the hugs, giggles and piano concerts and know they will be far between from now on because next week, he flies to Alexandria to interview for a clerkship with one of three Federal Magistrates. Should he be successful, he might be in Iowa or New Mexico or New Orleans ... which is the one I'm hoping for because it's only a couple of hours away.

Doesn't matter where the future takes him; to me, he will always be the dark-eyed cutie ready to save the world. (And he's going to kill me for posting that photo again.)

Okay, that’s all for today. I'm heading home from New Orleans and the awesome Bouchercon—my first one ever. All the presenters and honored guests were simply a fabulous list of who’s who. I was excited to be among the fans.

You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.
