So, what are you doing this year for Thanksgiving?
I'm actually gonna be spending this Thanksgiving at the beach, and I'm super excited about it. I'll be having turkey at the Tiki; I see football and crab legs in my future B-).
I also plan to catch up on my reading too. I'm currently reading Mistletoe and Mayhem, book 4 in Veronica Cline Barton's My American Almost Royal Cousin series, and I plan to finish Deadline by Judy McDonough and start KJ Backer's second book, Nav'Aria: The Pyre of Tarsin

I hope you all have a safe and happy day with your families. 

Meanwhile,
I'm still awaiting the go-ahead to release my teasers for the Christmas anthology; I'm hoping we'll have the cover soon... I'll keep you posted ;-) 
I'm in the process of editing book 5 (still) for a hopeful February 2020 release.
I have two stories for anthologies that'll be coming up next year that I'll be starting on soon as well as some miscellaneous novels that have come to me recently ;-) 

Stay tuned for more future works coming from this small-town author...

Have a great weekend and happy reading :-D

<![CDATA[Happy Fall, y'all!! October brings the Sweet As A Peach Book Event this Saturday, book 4's BIG cover reveal :-D AND my favorite holiday!]]>Thu, 03 Oct 2019 00:48:26 GMThttp://shannaswenson.com/adventures-in-writing/happy-fall-yall-october-brings-the-sweet-as-a-peach-book-event-this-saturday-book-4s-big-cover-reveal-d-and-my-favorite-holiday
Happy October, Abundance fans AND Happy Halloween--albeit it early ;-) 
 
Hello from Abundance!
I can't believe it's October already. It finally looks like next week will give us that cool weather we've all been holding out for here in the south! (Thank the Lord!)

This month is packed with exciting stuff...

Just three more days until my big book event this Saturday.
​If you're a local Georgian, come and stop by. We’ve got books, authors, raffles, freebies and more! 
Just scan the flier below to purchase your ticket. 
BOOK 4 COVER REVEAL 

Without further ado, I’m super excited to finally reveal the cover for book 4--Stars over Abundance, Buck and Vivian's story.
That’s right!!!!

 HERE it is!!!
 Stars over Abundance- set release date 12-6-19 
I’ve set a release date for Friday, December 6th and ARCs are going out mid next month.
You’ll have Buck in plenty of time for Christmas :-D
 
Here's the official blurb:
 
Vivian Alexander- Hollywood’s Oscar-winning actress extraordinaire was “coerced” into coming to the Helping Heroes Ball by her manager, to make an appearance and save face after the interview that embarrassed her far more than she cares to admit. After all, she’s good at hiding her true feelings behind the radiant smile that’s made her famous. Well, she came, she saw, she made her appearance. Now it’s time for a quick and inconspicuous exit…until she sees a familiar face she never imagined she would.

Buck Jenkins- Retired football player/gridiron legend/playboy comes to the ball; for it’s a good cause, and being as he’s not too far from Dallas and all he really can’t pass up the opportunity— not when he’s been MIA from the limelight as long as he has now. It’s a good excuse to get out of town anyway, for a much-needed break from the grievous chaos ensuing his life at the moment. But he didn’t see the bombshell blonde starlet coming until she was directly in front of him. Now, his night just made a surprising turn for the best.
 
One unexpected night...
 
Two unsuspecting hearts...
 
Their paths inescapably intertwine and neither will come out unscathed.

<![CDATA[August is here! Summer is just flying by...]]>Thu, 01 Aug 2019 22:51:47 GMThttp://shannaswenson.com/adventures-in-writing/august-is-here-summer-is-just-flying-by
Hi readers! How've you been? I didn't get around to posting an update last month, but I did send out a newsletter and do a couple book promos, so maybe that makes up for it ;-). I know your summer--like mine--has probably flown by. The kids are already back in school and we are one month closer to 2020. 
I hope you had a nice, fun, relaxing Independence Day. I did and I held my talk at the library on the 13th. It went smoothly and was good to have a voice in my local venue--albeit it be a small one.

(Check out my snazzy new banner) 
So, I have some exciting news to share with you (drum roll please) I recently sent Book 4: Stars over Abundance (Buck and Vivian's story) out to beta readers and I gotta say I am loving the feedback I'm getting. I will be doing some edits on it in the coming months and getting the cover sent off to my designer. But I'm aiming for a December release. I'll be sure to share the cover well before then ;-) But, we'll see how it all goes. Right now, I'm not rushing because I do work a full time job, send out a monthly newsletter, manage all these social media sites, blog, and review too--among write, take care of hubby and myself and a large house, try and maintain some semblance of a social life and so forth...

Speaking of reviews- Did you see my last book review for Pomegranate by Nicole Scarano? NO! OMG! Click here.
If you love Greek mythology, you HAVE to read this book. No seriously! STOP what you are doing and read it. Browse through the rest of my blog as well because there are several good ones in there that you might have missed, along with some indie author interviews of what inspired their work. 

Speaking of indie authors and their work- Keep an eye out in your inbox for this month's coming newsletter. There's a ton of new releases and trending books in it, info on upcoming series, AND even a HUGE book giveaway. It'll be going out on Tuesday, August 6th, so if you aren't a subscriber, click here. You'll also receive some free gifts just for being a newsletter subscriber ;-)

There's still plenty of time to grab your tickets for the Sweet As a Peach Indie Author Book Event coming in October here in Cumming, GA. The incredibly talented authors- Nicole Rodrigues, author of the Double Play Series and upcoming Saddler's Series will be joining me along with Evelyn Montgomery, author of the Kismet Series, to name a few in this epic line up of awesome indies.

​Grab your tickets now and join us on October 5th at the Lanier Technical College Conference center. 
Have you read my series?
If not, stayed tuned next month for the big book birthday sale I'm gonna be hosting for ALL three books. That's right! It's the upcoming one-year anniversary for Abundance's debut on September 16th, and you'll have an opportunity to get all three in the series for NOTHING. ZERO. ZILCH. NADA. I'll keep you posted, but September is gonna be big for books! I just wanna go ahead and let you know, so you can be prepared to stay in bed reading all day LOL! 

And with that I'm gonna head on over to Mailerlite and get to working on my newsletter. Here's a teaser for Book 4 for all my Buck Jenkin's fans ;-) 

Until next time, 
Happy reading from Abundance--where swoony cowboys are waiting to take your breath away ;-)
