Stop by The Chatelaines & Win
Posted by Colleen Thompson
Today I'm hanging out over at The Chatelaines blog, where author Jennifer Ashley's interviewed me about Beneath Bone Lake, Triple Exposure, and my fascination with Lone Star settings, from Caddo Lake and the Hill Country to Marfa with its mystery lights.
I'd love to see some familiar names and friendly faces, and I'll be giving away a signed copy of Triple Exposure to one lucky commenter.
Today's photo of Caddo Lake is by E. Joseph Deering at the Houston Chronicle. Beautiful, isn't it?
We welcome payola in the form of pies, cakes, neatly folded laundry and free books!
In accordance with FTC regulations, we're required to inform readers that we receive books from publishers, authors, and PR folk for review. We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.
Peace, love, and statutory compliance ~
