Enter to Win 7 Books!
GOOD LUCK/BONNE CHANCE
It might be a case of spring fever, but we seem to be immersed in giveaways at the moment. It’s always fun to do promotions. We hope readers enjoy having a chance to win books and other prizes and, as authors, our goal also is to make our work known to some new readers. So we hope you share the news about this with your friends.
Here’s the biggie. This actually came about after Heather Burch, Mary Tod, Marilyn Simon Rothstein and I happened to be in Naples, Florida at the same time. It was a little meet-up of Lake Union Authors when we got together for a relaxing lunch on the beach at the popular Turtle Club Restaurant. I love eating there, sitting outside with that soft silky sand between my toes!
Among other things, we were celebrating the recent release of Marilyn’s sequel to her hilarious first novel, Lift and Separate, the equally hilarious Husbands and Other Sharp Objects. One thing authors love to do is celebrate each other’s new releases!
Needless to say we spent a lot of time talking about writing and books and life and laughing … oh … and we had some of those tasty beach drinks with the little umbrellas. They were SO delicious, they didn’t need any alcohol in them. Seriously.
The next thing we knew we were planning a promotion. As most writers do, we all had books in our cars. As I always do, I had my camera at the ready. Badda bing, badda boom … here’s our

Here’s the blurb …
The author of the Love in Provence series returns to the South of France with a poignant portrait of a woman who must learn how to create a new life for herself…
Sixty-two-year-old Arianna arrives in the South of France for a two-week artists’ workshop full of anticipation but burdened by guilt. Back home in Toronto, she has been living with the devastating diagnosis of her husband’s dementia and the heartbreak of watching the man she has loved for decades slip away before her eyes. What does her future hold without Ben? Before her is a blank canvas.
Encouraged by her family to take some time for herself, she has traveled to Arles to set up her easel in the same fields of poppies and sunflowers that inspired Van Gogh. Gradually, she rediscovers the inner artist she abandoned long ago. Drawing strength from the warm companionship and gentle wisdom of her fellow artists at the retreat—as well as the vitality of guest lecturer Jacques de Villeneuve, an artist and a cowboy—Arianna searches her heart for permission to embrace the life in front of her and, like the sunflowers, once again face the light.
With over 90% 4 and 5-star reviews, readers are loving this story as much as I loved writing it. *Tissue alert*
If it’s Friday, it must be France …
It’s as easy as that!
Once you’ve entered the draw, be sure to take a look through the rest of the magazine. The articles and photographs are always outstanding! The magazine is published quarterly by my good friend, the tremendously talented Janine Marsh. The day it arrives in my mailbox is one of my favourite times … and, as I like to say, it is FREE, FABULOUS AND ALL ABOUT FRANCE!
My Good Life in France is a wonderful story that will have you laughing out loud and possibly will persuade you to follow a dream of your own. Pourquoi pas?
Have you ever considered spending an extended time in a foreign country? Another good book to read along this same line was featured here on my blog a few weeks ago. Click here to read about Keith Van Sickle’s, memoir, One Sip at a Time: Learning to Live in Provence.
On the subject of following a dream, here are a few photos that always stir my French fantasies and have me counting the days until I return to the Côte d’Azur. Enjoy!
Good luck with the draw!
