I am incredibly grateful as I return from the Bay Area. With a sense of nervous energy and exhilaration, I introduced Larkspur Bungalow to the cities which inspired many of its pages.
The book begins in Portland, Oregon and eventually finds its way to the magical Marin County. Two West Coast communities I have lived and loved! Packed with a layered story of love, loss, and a mystery that follows our main character, readers are positively responding. Some intrigued and others shocked, but mostly entertained and inspired by the overwhelming strength and conviction of our beloved main character.
Portland and Seattle will hopefully be on the docket for some book events, as well as a return visit to the Bay Area. If you have a local bookstore that features author events, let me know. I may just be in a town near you! And for those who live in Central Illinois, check out my Larkspur Bungalow Facebook page for upcoming events. First on the list is a book signing at Garlic Press in Uptown Normal on April 25th from 1~4.
The following are some photos from my recent visit to the Bay Area. If you happen to find yourself in Marin, Larkspur Bungalow can be found at Book Passage in Corte Madera. For those outside Marin, you can easily order or download your very own copy on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Lulu, or iBooks. If you like what you read, a review is always appreciated on the site where it was purchased, as well as Goodreads.
It is both humbling and terrifying to release any creative venture into the world. Your notes of congratulation and support mean a great deal to me as I navigate my way through uncharted waters.
