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.

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.

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 ;-)
Shanna Swenson, author of the Abundance series
