On May 22, which happens to be my mother’s birthday, A Gateway to Hope became available on Amazon and Smashwords. Now you also can purchase the e-book at Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and iBooks. Other retailers will follow soon.
My debut novel was reviewed at the Hog on Ice: Books and Independent Learning blog. And it will be featured during the month of June on the Folks Tales Things blog.
Also, a two-month-long advertisement will begin July 1st in Times of Praise, an Oklahoma-based newspaper. Feelers are out for ways to introduce people to the romance novel.

What’s Next on the Marketing Agenda?
Getting the word out to book lovers and keeping it there. If you enjoyed reading this novel, please spread the word. Tell friends, family and coworkers about your experience. Also, recommend it to book clubs and suggest that your library buy a copy.
Though the paperback is coming soon, anyone can read it by downloading a free Kindle reading app from Amazon or a free Nook reading app from Barnes & Noble to their computer or smartphone.
While waiting for the paperback version of A Gateway to Hope to be published in the next two weeks, I would love to hear feedback from you. I can’t wait to say that the paperback version is available online and a copy can be ordered at bookstores everywhere.
Last weekend began the official writing of my second book!
Up next: It’s done!
