It’s a PARTY! Will you join me?

It’s a baby shower, of sorts, celebrating SUGAR BIRDS‘s birth. Or a graduation, as the novel leaves the publishing house, polished and ready for readers. Or a commissioning, as the story finds its way in the world.

It’s also a THANK YOU, to you who have encouraged and prayed, edited and reviewed, read ARCs and shared your enthusiasm for the novel.

And it’s an introduction to the story, for those who want to know more.

Officially, it’s SUGAR BIRDS‘s ONLINE LAUNCH PARTY, hosted by Village Books!

No dress code.

Whatever you want to eat or drink. (B.Y.O.)

Book giveaways.

Good conversation.

Lasts one hour, start to finish.

(And there may be puns.)


Tuesday, August 3, at 5:00 pm Pacific time, so you early-to-bed East Coasties can even wear jammies.

Free admission, but you’ll need a ticket (see below).

It’s a Zoom webinar, which means I won’t see your kind faces or hear your voices. So . . . you can tune in while you’re driving home from work, or fixing dinner, or canoeing, or weeding, or lying in your hammock under some trees.

You don’t even have to watch us. Simply listening will be fun, too, because author Maggie Rowe, who will be interviewing me, is a hoot. I’ll have names of ticket-holders in a hat, and will draw three winners of a signed Sugar Birds paperback. We’ll have a Q & A at the end, and you can ask me anything in the chat. (Um . . . almost. 😆)

Will you come? 🧡

You can get your ticket HERE.



And now some shots I shared on SM during our cooker of a week. (108 degree high here in the far NW corner of Washington State!)

Sky bowling.

“The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon.”

—Psalm 74:16


Blue plus green.

“He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes . . . “

—Jeremiah 17:8


Shade seekers.

“They heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves…”

—Genesis 3:8


Easy (vole) pickins.

“May God give you of the dew of heaven and of the fatness of the earth . . . “

—Genesis 27:28



And just yesterday, my publicist sent THIS! 😍 Click HERE to read more . . .

Thanks for stopping by, friends. “See” you at the PARTY!
