Travel theme: EDGE

If it’s Friday, it must be France …

The photo challenge travel theme , “edge”, this week on Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack struck a note with me! Click right here, to check out some of the fabulous photos posted on other blogs.

I’ve been on edge all week with the excitement of releasing Promises To Keep, thePTK_final_lg second book in what is now the Love In Provence series. When a novel is published, it’s a very exhilarating, exhausting and … to be honest … slightly nerve-wracking time. We go over everything with a fine tooth comb because we want it to be perfect for you … every little detail!

So, this is it: the OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT THAT PROMISES TO KEEP is now available as an ebook on Amazon, Kobo, Nook, and iTunes at a special price through the long weekend. Print copies should be ready by October.

Had it not been for all the enthusiastic emails I received from readers of The Promise of Provence asking “What happened next?” I might have moved on to write an entirely different story .

But all the questions and the way readers cared about Katherine, pulled me back into her journey and the rest is history! Promises To Keep is Book Two of what will now be the Love In Provence series and that has me very excited … and already working on Book Three. See what you started? I can’t thank you enough.

And now to the other part of this post.

Since I love to participate in photo challenges … and particularly ones that give me another chance to share photos from France … the word “edge” instantly brought to mind these photos taken on the spectacular Route des Crêtes between La Ciotat and Cassis. If you are visiting that part of the Var, be sure to take this breathtaking drive!

That’s our nephew hanging over the edge. I wasn’t quite so keen. Hello vertigo!

How are you doing? Has anything got you on edge?  You know, just looking at these photos has brought back such good memories that I’m already feeling more relaxed.

Now back to working on the next book!

  1. Finished reading Promises to Keep yesterday. It is also very intense, and I enjoyed it immensely. It also referred me back to The Promise of Provence, which I started to reread now. The idea of continuing with other characters in these books is great, as they are all very well defined. young and old alike.

    I’ll make sure to leave a review when I am done and reread Promises. One reading will not do…

    Thanks for making our days brighter, bringing us the food, sun and beaches and impossibly beautiful landscapes – and the mistral too!

  3. Bravo, Patricia, for the release of the ebook. I will definitely add this one to my Kindle collection.

  7. Thanks, Patricia, for letting me know about the weekly travel themes at Where’s my backpack? I’ve joined in the fun at Destination: Fiction. And I’m really enjoying The Promise of Provence — I’ve added it to my Pinterest board “Books for Armchair Travellers”. Looking forward to continuing the journey in Promises to Keep. You’re helping me relive my visit to Provence. (Great photos!)
