Meet Amanda Flower/Isabella Alan this Fall!

pslFall means two things to me: Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Book Fair Season. Yes, I am one of the hordes who goes absolutely gaga over Starbucks’ PSL. When September strikes, I begin asking my local barista if the PSL has arrived. It officially launched on September 8th, but I got one a few days earlier at my local Starbucks. Nothing can compare to the Starbucks version of the pumpkin spice latte. I tried one by an unnamed competitor over the weekend and it wasn’t even close.

So with my PSL in hand, I face the fall and book fair season. In Ohio and in neighboring states many book fairs are held in the beautiful Midwestern autumn, and I will be appearing at several. I would love to meet you at one of the below events! If you can’t make one of these, check your local paper and see what book events are happening in your own area.

A Plain Death Book Tour Recap

Thank you to everyone who came to one of my signings over the last two months. It was a great book tour! Special thanks to B&H Publishing and all the bookstores and libraries that hosted me.

Hugs to Mary Ellis, who signed with me at a couple of stops. You should check out her books. They are wonderful portrayals of Amish Life.

Here are some photos from the road. Enjoy!

Also thanks to all my fantastic Facebook Fans for their support. We are marching our way to 600 fans. When we reach it, I will give away two more Amish gifts!! Tell your friends!

Micro-mini Book Tour: Amanda Flower and Mary Ellis

Bestselling Amish romance author, Mary Ellis, and I are going on a micro-mini book tour. Our tour only includes two stops, but we are looking forward to visiting both NE Ohio and Central Ohio. Mary will be signing her latest release Living in Harmony, and I will be signing A Plain Death.

Here are the details:

Paragraphs Bookstore
August 11, 11am-2pm, Mount Vernon, OH

Learned Owl Book Shop
August 25, 1-3pm, Hudson, OH

Our first stop is Paragraphs Bookstore in Mount Vernon, Ohio. I’m particularly excited about this signing because it is the county where A Plain Death is set. I lived in Mount Vernon for three years and that experience inspired the Appleseed Creek Mystery Series.

Our second stop is the Learned Owl Book Shop in Hudson, Ohio. I love this store and have had several great signings there before. They are so supportive of local authors and their community.

Mary and I hope to see you at one of these events!

Outside of the tour, you can also meet me at the following signings.

LifeWay Christian Store, North Columbus
August 18, 11am-1pm, Columbus, OH

Book Talk & Signing
Tallmadge Branch Library
September 10, 6:30pm, Tallmadge, OH

Dead Fred’s NW Ohio Adventure

Over the weekend, Dead Fred and I traveled to northwestern Ohio  for an A Plain Death Book Signing at the Defiance Public Library and to visit a good friend’s farm. The signing was terrific. Thank you to everyone who came out! Special thanks to the Schroeder Family for the warm welcome! Just let me know when you need me to drive the Gator again.

Enjoy Dead Fred’s latest album! More photos can be found on my  Facebook Page!

Don’t forget the Giveaway is ONGOING!

Currently, we are at 492 fans on my Facebook Page.  We are so close to 500. When we reach 500, I will give away two Amish quilted gifts. The winners have a choice between the Log Cabin Quilted Wall Pouch or the Quilted Eyeglass/Cell Phone Case. The Wall Pouch is big enough to hold one trade paperback.  I bought these from my friend Anna Hochstelter’s quilt shop in Sugar Creek, Ohio. If you are ever in Sugar Creek, be sure to visit Swiss Village Quilts and Crafts on Broadway. It’s one of my favorite places in Ohio’s Amish Country. Suggest my Facebook Page with your Facebook friends to get us over the 500 hump!

Dead Fred’s California / ALA Adventure

Dead Fred and I were only in Anaheim, California for one and half days, but we made the most of it. Saturday, we went to Disneyland, and Sunday, we attended the American Library Association Annual Conference. I signed copies of A Plain Death at the B&H Publishing booth.

Enjoy Dead Fred’s photo journal of our travels!
