(Blog) Tour of Marsden, Day 6: The Catskills!


Marsden sign

Well, now! The (Blog) Tour of Marsden is rolling into its second week! Today I’m dropping in on my bud and fellow author Glynis Astie’s blog, where I’m talking about the beautiful Catskill Mountains, a region of central New York State that’s near and dear to my heart—and the setting for my small-town rom com series. There’s a lot more to it than Dirty Dancing, so head on over to Glynis’ blog to find out more!

Plus there just might be an excerpt from Down on Love, which (ahem—by the way) you can pick up for only 99 cents, all e-formats, all month long! See you over there!
