Here’s the scoop. You probably remember that I signed a 4 book deal with Amazon Publishing earlier this year for my Adams Grove series. My editors and I have been re-working/revising the first two books, Sweet Tea and Serets and Out of Focus. I’m really excited about them, and I can’t wait for the new versions to get into readers hands. Since book three is Wedding Cake and Big Mistakes we want to find Out of Focus a new name that fits the story and the series.
With your help, I know we can find the perfect match! So, let’s see what we can come up with.
Some of the suggestions we’ve received so far are:
This story, if you haven’t read the original version, is about a commercial photographer, Kasey Phillips, who thinks her biggest problem is deciding whether to photograph Cody Tuggle’s honky-tonkin’ tour, until an accident on Route 58 claims the life of her husband.
In a desperate race against time as a hurricane threatens the eastern seaboard, they search for her three-year-old son who is missing from the wreckage.
A community and friends rally to help, but someone knows more than they are telling.
“Biscuits and Beaux” or “Biscuits and Bows”
Cornbread and Comfort
F-stops and heart drops
Country Songs and Hurricane Gone
Family Time and Country Line
Photographs and Lies
Mint Juleps and Justice
Country Songs and Hope Belongs
Camera Lens and Dead Ends
Bread Pudding and Promise
Porch Swings and Promises
Honeysuckle and Heartache
Pecan Pie and Alibis
Do any of those float your boat? Or can you do better?

The online magazine Kings River Life published their December issue. Inside you’ll find their special Christmas Gift Suggestions Book List and I’m excited to share that Out of Focus and inkBLOT (the novel I co-wrote with Phyllis Johnson) are both on the list!!
OUT OF FOCUS – reviewed by Diana Hockley said “Nancy’s style is laid back and easy – I read it in one night….I reviewed Nancy’s first Adams Grove novel, Sweet Tea and Secrets, some time ago, and although I was impressed, I am of the opinion that this story is even better in terms of technical expertise and emotive imagery. Highly recommended!”
inkBLOT – reviewed by Terrance V McArthur said “In a world where Internet wonderboys can turn their concepts into megabucks, it is fun to watch Ronnie trying to parlay his brand into wider usage, while someone else tries to spin him into police custody. There are lessons in marketing savvy that add to the fun of this quirky novel.”
Here’s the link to the magazine. You can read the full reviews and enter to win free books!
Hugs and Happy Reading…
