May was a whirlwind and now it’s mid-June. Almost summer! It’s a great time to be on our hilltop in Vermont. I just chased a woodchuck out of the rose garden and watched a hummingbird flutter among the flowers. I was on a quick break from writing.

Yes, I’m writing!

I know it’s been longer than usual between book releases, and I appreciate the notes from readers wanting more books. It’s happening! I’ve been in “deep work” mode, as well as spending quality time with my ailing mother and my young grandchildren.

And training for my two half-marathons this year. I was signed up for the 2020 Covered Bridges Half Marathon here in Vermont but it was postponed until this June. The organizers decided to do a “virtual” version. Since I often train on the CBHM route along the Ottauquechee River (see image below), that’s where I did my run last week. 13.1 miles is a long way to run but I’m happy I did it.

Now it’s on to my Ireland half-marathon in September. The image in the header is on the stunning route on the Dingle peninsula. Can’t wait!

Have you noticed that my Sharpe & Donovan series has a new digital look? Check it out here. Just in time for a new one, right? I’m working on it.

And I have books on sale this month. The Angel and The Carriage House are just $1.99 in eBook. I also noticed That Night on Thistle Lane is just $1.99, but I don’t know for how long. I’ve discovered writers myself through sale books. It’s a great reason to get into a Kindle, Nook, iPad or other e-reader of your choice. I was resistant, I admit, but I’m into it. And I still love my print books. It’s not either/or for me.

“A hint of magic combined with a suspenseful plot and a setting that is so vibrant it is almost a character in and of itself makes for a winning combination in this fast paced story…”—The Huntress Reviews on THE ANGEL

“Brimming with Neggers’ usual flair for creating likable, believable characters…a colorful, well-spun story…”—Publishers Weekly on THE CARRIAGE HOUSE

“The mysterious mood and vintage feel of the story reminds me of gothic greats like Mary Stewart, Victoria Holt and Daphne du Maurier — and in fact, these authors are mentioned in the book.” —Happy Ever After, USA Today on THAT NIGHT ON THISTLE LANE

Thanks, and Happy June!
