One thought on “Forthcoming Reviews and Author Interviews

  1. Hello. I wish you much success and satisfaction with your blog. If you’re interested in reading and blogging about: AT BOBBY TRIVETTE’S GRAVE by Donna D. Vitucci –Family, mystery, love and grief… Bobby Trivette loves starry-eyed DruAnn Finch, boy loses girl, boy dies in a tragic accident in Kentucky’s back hills, but Bobby’s streak through the Finch family is only the beginning. Dru Ann’s future turns to pure free fall. Her grief spiral sets everyone connected to her evaluating the ones they love, their secrets and past ills, and the ways they’ve lived in the small town of Paris, Kentucky, forever in the shadow and the spirit of the Cane Ridge Shrine. Ron Rash and David Long read and contributed blurbs for this book, and there are some complimentary reviews posted at Amazon. This literary fiction coming of age story was released June 19, 2016, by indie publisher Rebel ePublishers and is available at Amazon as an ebook for 3.99 USD, also in paperback for $11.99. If you have an interest, let me know how I can help you access the book.

    if you’re overwhelmed, I certainly understand. Perhaps the Wimbledon reading group would maybe pitch this book for a group read? I can get you paperback copies.

    Thanks, and all the best~
    Donna D. Vitucci
