Catching Up

I've been very busy trying to finish a few projects, so I haven't posted in awhile. Still playing catch up!

Many thanks to Sandra at FRESH INK BOOKS for her lovely review and to David at LARGEHEARTED BOY for naming TOMATO GIRL on his list of favorite novels for 2008

TOMATO GIRL is available on cassette and CD at RECORDED BOOKS as part of their Southern Voices Audio Imprint. The audio is also available at Julia Gibson narrates the story. She's wonderful!

And for Amazon's KINDLE users, I see that TOMATO GIRL is now available in this format, too.
