And although the temperatures here in the Hill Country are consistently over 100 degrees, forecasters promise rain and cooler weather beginning next week. Entering the season of pumpkin spiced drinks, pumpkin pie, and crisp Fall weather is a welcome one for me as I settle into my new home. 

Soon I'll be taking a trip to New Braunfels, Texas to visit my niece, who is an accomplished actor as well as a seasoned audio book narrator. Audio book sales are rising dramatically and authors need to check out whether it would be a beneficial addition to their marketing plan.

My romantic suspense novel, High Desert Heat, is nearing the one-year anniversary of its release date and has received only five-star reviews on Amazon. Thank you to all you readers who left a review. I'm glad you enjoyed the book.

Back in the Lone Star State

Sep 08, 2023 by Wanda J. McLaughlin

Since moving to the Hill Country (yes, we do capitalize that phrase in Texas), last May, I've come to appreciate the weather in San Diego more than I had. Ninety-degree highs there had me cursing the heat. Now, with temperatures soaring above 100 degrees for the past 71 days, I look back and laugh at myself. But it's September and a cool front is scheduled in a few days, so I've decided to enjoy the luxury (or necessity) of air-conditioning and get some writing done.
