    Book Report

    The Cottage Tales Blog Tour
    Susan is planning a blog tour November 5-14. If you've never heard of a blog tour, you'll find all the details here. We're holding a drawing for every blog visit, and a grand prize drawing at the end, so there will be plenty of chances to win a free copy of The Tale of Hawthorn House. (Of course, if you don't want to wait, you can always get your own signed copy. Ordering information is here.)

    Story Circle Book Review Site Relaunched
    Some years ago, Susan launched the Story Circle Book Review site. Recently, she and Paula Yost and Peggy Moody, with the help of Linda Wisniewski, completely renovated the site. If you love women's books and enjoy sharing them with others, Susan invites you to join the review team. There are full details on the site.

    Cottage Tales Maps
    Did you know that downloadable color prints of the Cottage Tales maps are available at the website? These are the same helpful maps that appear in the book, but in full color! You'll find them on the new Cottage Tales website at Village Maps.


    Lifescapes & the Pecan Springs Journal

    Autumn has finally arrived in Texas and Susan and Bill have been busy with outside chores. But Susan is also making time for fiber work—see photos of her weaving and knitting at Lifescapes. She's working on another China Bayles mystery, too, and blogging about the process at the Pecan Springs Journal.
