Release Day 11-19I don’t do TOO much book peddling on this blog, but with the release of When Silence Sings in less than three weeks I thought I’d mention it. Yup, my next Appalachian story will hit shelves on November 5. Or earlier in some cases!

If you’d like to pre-order the book you can click on the cover image to the right. If you’d like to get a copy in person, you can come to my book launch celebration at the cutest bookstore in Western NC on November 3.

And if you’d like to know what the story’s about, here’s a snippet from an early review in Booklist – “Thomas brings to life a rugged yet faith-based Appalachian drama perilously situated in the crosshairs of feuding families. Set in 1930 West Virginia, this standalone novel draws on themes of mercy, understanding, and loving your neighbor amidst the dangers of lawless vengeance and moonshine runs.”

Well said!

While I’m not exactly going on tour with this new book, there are a couple of events coming up. I hope I’ll see you at one of them!

  • Book Launch – November 3 at 3 p.m. – Sassafras on Sutton in Black Mountain, NC
  • Reader’s Breakfast – November 6 at 9 a.m. – Fido in Nashville, TN.  Join writers Becky Wade, Lynette Eason, Kristi Ann Hunter, Connilyn Cossette, Sarah Loudin Thomas, Janet Ferguson (and maybe others) for breakfast and/or coffee! We’ll be traveling to Tennessee for the Christy Awards gala and would love to visit with some of our Nashville friends and readers while we’re there.
  • Book Signing – November 21 at 5:30 p.m. – Upshur County Public Library in Buckhannon, WV (my home town!)
