Here's the new trailer for all three books! It's way cool. Michael and Leesie in a nutshell. If you share my YouTube link to it on FaceBook or Twitter, I'll give you an extra entry in the M+L FOREVER CONTEST.  If you post (embed) the trailer on your blog, that's good for THREE extra entries. 


Here's the link and code.

Embed code for new trailer: <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value=""></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object> 

And now for those pictures I promised last post. This is the farmhouse I grew up in. This is what it looked like when we lived there. 

My family had to sell the farm--oh, it was so sad--but the man who owns the house now has made it the work of his retirement to totally restore the house and barn. Here's the house now. It's even more beautiful than when we lived there.

Isn't the barn gorgeous? This is the barn Leesie says was built by her grandfather. It was built by our grandfather. The roof used to be wooden shingles. This isn't the icky sow barn that is the setting for those pivotal scenes in TAKEN BY STORM.  That barn used to be beside this pond. It was ugly, made of corrugated metal, and smelled bad, but I'm sad that it's gone.

On Monday, the tour goes to Bloggin 'Bout Books for a review of UNBROKEN CONNECTION and CAYMAN SUMMER plus a new interview. It always amazes me how a good interviewer can get new stuff out of me. Tune in for this one. 


  1. Lovely little trailer. I'll be sharing it on my blog soon :)
    And the farmhouse looks gorgeous. But I like it better when you lived there. So quaint.

  2. Thanks, Bee! That's my favorite picture of it, too.
