No, my daughter-in-law isn't pregnant. I'm talking about my latest book release, A Ranger's Trail.
River North Fiction (Moody) has done ana amazing job promoting the book. This week I've seen several things that made me smile.
Biggest news: The Christian Retailing magazine featured the Texas Trail series in an article on historical fiction. There was my book cover, with one by the Thoenes! There was a quote from co-author Susan Page Davis together with one from Tracie Peterson! We're hoping it will catch the eyes of bookstores and renew interest in carrying all six books.
Reviews of A Ranger's Trail are starting to come in. I had to love the down-home feel from this review: "Ah shucks being a native of that area makes me real proud of Darlene Franklin for being such a great author. Get this book, you will be a better person for doing so." And other, longer reviews that pointed out so many things I built into the story.
This is the fun part of being an author (provided the book isn't panned by everyone, LOL.) Come party with me!
Congrats to KAMEKO, last week's winner of Love's Raid. Leave comments again this week for a chance to win Plainsong, a contemporary Colorado romance that takes places in my beloved Denver.
