Psst! Be sure to read the end of this post for news about a special contest!
I know I’m late! I had a really good excuse though for not posting earlier. I just got back in town from a research trip in North Arkansas. So, I’m catching up with email and trying to get back to work on a couple of projects I left “mid-stroke” so to speak! 🙂
One of the emails I found was a lovely review for the book I have coming out at the end of this month with Kensington Aphrodisia. RJ’s Chrissy Dionne gave DOWN IN TEXAS five Blue Ribbons!!! The review isn’t posted yet, but here’s a snippet of what she had to say:
“Delilah Devlin’s DOWN IN TEXAS is a fabulous anthology that kept my attention throughout each and every story. Each story flows easily into the next because the majority of the characters are present throughout each of them. The stories are all special in their own right but together they’re truly spectacular. The Tynan and McDonough families are honorable and strong families and reading about how they find and set about holding onto their significant other makes me just a little envious. Ms. Devlin has proved herself a capable storyteller before but with DOWN IN TEXAS she’s cemented a place on my ‘most watched authors’ list.”
I couldn’t be more thrilled that the book is getting a fabulous response from everyone who’s reviewed it so far. I know, every book a writer creates is special, but this Texas story is very near and dear to my heart. I moved from Texas last year and wrote it while I was feeling a little homesick. When I wrote the last word, I knew I had something special.
I hope you’ll all give the book a chance and pick it up when it releases on October 28th. I’d love for you to read a little of the story in order to tempt you, but I’m not sure how sexy I can get on this blog–so, I’ll play it safe and tell you there are plenty of excerpts on my blog from the last several day’s postings, and you can also read the opening chapter on my website. To celebrate the release, be sure to visit my blog for the next week as I continue my countdown to the release of the book. I’m giving away free books, beaded bookmarks, gift cards, etc. Any comment you post here will count as a contest entry too!! ~DD
