Pearl-isms – Words To Live By

WELCOME TO ADAMS GROVE…where the tea is sweet, but trouble is brewing. Sweet Tea and Secrets is the first of my books in the Adams Grove series. 

If you haven’t read Sweet Tea and Secrets yet, Pearl is the matriarch of the tiny southern town of Adams Grove. She’s a tough, sassy ol’ gal who has earned her spot in the hearts of everybody in the town. She’s known for her blue-ribbon Chocolate Pecan Pie, and for giving the best unsolicited advice in the county.  This gal will live on in the town way beyond her years on this Earth.

I think the last line in Chapter One gives such a nice peek into who Pearl is.

Pearl tucked a raw broccoli floret behind her ear and leaned in with a huge smile.

I can’t wait to be a sassy ol’ do-and-say-what’s on your mind kind of a gal!

TODAY’S PEARL-ISM:: Better to fight for what you really want then to be left wanting what you didn’t fight for.

The re-release of Sweet Tea and Secrets on 9/25 hit the charts with amazing attention. #1 Hot New Release and a top Amazon Mover and Shaker, and is still sitting in the top 5 Kindle –> Romance –> Series slot.

Thanks so much for your support of this new cover – new twist – version from Montlake Romance. I’m thrilled with the support I’m getting from Montlake (see the beautiful flowers! They arrived on release day and this is how pretty they still look today!) and I can’t wait to bring you the next NEW title in the Adams Grove series.

Wedding Cake and Big Mistakes is penciled in for April right now. I’ll keep you posted as we finalize revisions and get the inked in release date. Like Sweet Tea and Secrets, it’ll be out in paperback, digital and audio.

You can take a little listen to Sweet Tea and Secrets in the audio snippet on the Brilliance Audio site. Just click here. Southern gal, Shannon McManus does an awesome read. Thanks, Shannon!

If you read the old version and enjoyed it….thank you and I hope you’ll take a minute and go back and LIKE the page on Amazon.com of your favorite format and maybe leave a little review. If you haven’t read an Adams Grove novel yet…I hope you will. It’s perfect timing too with the holidays just around the corner. You see Pearl Clemmons Blue Ribbon Chocolate Pecan Pie recipe (along with a couple others) is in the back of the book. You’ll think you died and went to heaven when you bite into this fudgy pecan pie recipe.

Hugs and happy reading~
