A good time to pay it forward

cj Sez:  Half a year (minus a few days) has come and gone, and I still haven’t planted the basil I need for all those wonderful tomatoey dishes. My excuse is that at 92° in the shade, it’s already too hellaciously hot and humid to be working in the yard.

Summer Tanager

   Instead I think I’ll plant some ideas in your heads for summer vacation reads . . . by authors who have a new book release or one that will soon be launched.


  Carrie Dalby’s 
Malevolent Hearts, Book 1 in “The Malevolent Trilogy”
scheduled for release on July 19 is available for preorder now

... nineteen-year-old Merritt Hall arrives in Mobile, Alabama, at the end of summer in 1897. Straight-laced Merritt and fifteen-year-old Winifred clash with most of what's important to the elder cousin—decorum, responsibility, and education.”

  Five Belles Too Many by Debra H.
Goldstein has a launch date of June 28, and is available for pre-order now

“When Sarah Blair’s mother participates in a reality show competition for brides in Wheaton, Alabama, things get a little too real as a murderer crashes the wedding party . . .”

  Death in a New Land (A People of the Wind Mystery Book 3) by Kaye George has a Kindle launch date of July 19 and is available for pre-order now

Enga Dancing Flower and her tribe have reached a place they can stay in safety. Or have they?  ...this is made even more evident when a male of Enga’s tribe is murdered, and a baby is kidnapped.

And, of course, my two novels: 

  Fast-paced, exciting thrillers with a smidgen of romance (ala Jane Bond).


  By the by, as the masthead of Lyrical Pens says, if you have a book (new or old) you want to promote with a blog post, drop me a note. We can arrange a blog date…the only caveat is that this site is PG 13.


  That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. Prayers going up for your health and safety.
