Back in the Saddle Again...

Today, I accepted an invitation to be part of a book review tour in the latter part of October. I have been "taking it easy" on posting to this blog over the summer, with few reviews, and have not participated in book giveaways on book blogs, at all.

For those of my followers still checking in on me, from time to time, I'd like to ask your help and participation.  I'm am going to schedule a book blog tour for my own novel, Back to the Homeplace, later this fall. If your blog, or the blog of someone you know, has a good number of readers interested in the "family saga" genre of books, I'd like to hear from you, in the comments. Last spring, I had a number of nice reviews, but some of them were on sites that specialized in other types of reading - I'd like to focus this time on "my readers!"

The Kindle version of the book is now $5.95 and Amazon has the hard copy at $13.45, if you want to check it out.

Thanks for your help! Each good recommendation will be appreciated. The second book in the series will be available next spring. See: - The Homeplace Revisited.

Each and every comment is appreciated, and I will attempt to respond to each. Happy to answer any questions.

Happy Reading!

Dr. Bill  ;-)
