Release Day Tidbits

Tomorrow is the long-awaited release day for Rancher's Son

In honor of the occasion, I Googled the title this morning.  It always amazes me what little tidbits you can find on-line.  For instance...

Rancher's Son is on sale in the UK!  See 

Genre Go Round Reviews gave Rancher's Son a very positive review saying, " Character driven, fans will enjoy this engaging Yuletide romance as a late twist accentuates that love is the foundation for a functioning family." 

If you haven't had the opportunity, I hope you'll "like" my page at for a chance to win a prize package that includes an autographed copy of Rancher's Son

And last, but puzzlingly not least, a copy of Rancher's Son sold on Ebay in October, nearly two months before the release date.  I'm scratching my head over that one.  If you can shed some light on how that happened, I'd love to hear from you.

A Weekend of Music

In the past few years, hubby has turned his attention from fly fishing to bluegrass and old-time country music.  Which means, whenever we can, we spend a day or two at a music festival.  This weekend was one of the best within driving range--at the Barberville Pioneer Settlement for the Creative Arts.  

Somewhere near 100 groups performed at various venues ranging from an old-fashioned church to outdoor pavillions and a barn.  At the same time, there were workshops on all aspects of bluegrass, folk and old-time country music, even a few on songwriting. 

While I enjoy spending the day listening to banjo and fiddle music, for hubby, there's nothing better than sitting in on a jam.   

Hubby, on the right, my sister and brother-in-law, and a close friend, headed for music and fun!
