There are so many things to celebrate this week; it's hard to know where to start. School is starting up again and my son is starting his
FINAL semester in college. He's also starting his new part-time job working in an electronics department (a dream job for a gadget and tech savvy twenty-something).
It is also time once again to add another candle to my cake. I must admit I have always liked pie better. So we will have a "birthday pie" instead of a cake. (Not that my hips need either one) Although the candles are adding up too fast, I am comforted by that lesson from the porch that reminds us we’re either getting older or we're dead. So, pass me that candle. :-)
And my biggest news is that Breaking TWIG is FINALLY available in paperback. Yeah! Since many who have asked for a paperback format are also in book clubs, I have included a Reading Group Discussion Guide in the paperback. If you have the Kindle version and would like a copy of the discussion questions, please fill out the comment form on this site or email me at email@example.com. I'd be happy to send it to you. More about this in the next blog.
So help me celebrate with a FREE KINDLE DOWNLOAD of Breaking TWIG on August 26& 27. Enjoy a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. Thanks for your wonderful support.
I’ve had a busy start to the summer with family and friends coming from Texas to visit us in our beautiful Montana valley. I suspect they were looking for a
little relief from that Texas heat and humidity. It’s nice to get out of the air conditioning sometimes and be able to sleep with the windows open. There’s also a soft rain falling tonight, so that makes it twice as sweet.
For those who have requested a printed version of Breaking TWIG, I wanted to let you know the paperback is being proofed now, and I hope to have it available later this month. And yes, it will include the reading group discussion guide for book
The Kindle ebook version of Breaking TWIG is free, July 1. The reading group discussion guide is not found in the Kindle format, but if you’d like a copy of the guide, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out a comment card on this website. Enjoy your Fourth of July holiday and your summer.
It seems May is a month of celebrations. In addition to the
birthdays (my son and brother's), graduations, Mother’s Day, and the Memorial
Day holiday, this month has many lesser known, but equally deserving holidays
to celebrate. For example, did you know May was Family Wellness Month
and National Military Appreciation Month?
Being from the Gulf Coast, I especially want to mention that May
is American Wetlands Month and give a special shout out to Capt. Wendy at
bayouwoman.com for all her work in helping restore and protect the wetlands of
In May, we also have National New Friends, Old Friends Week: 15-21.
It’s the perfect time to reconnect with an old friend and reach out to a
new one. Eliza Doolittle Day is May 20th (for our cousins across the pond),
and we can’t forget May is also National Barbeque Month,in honor of all
grill-masters everywhere, especially Nathan, my husband and griller
extraordinaire for almost thirty years.
So in honor of so many wonderful happenings in May, I am giving

Have a wonderful month and thanks for stopping by,
Christie V. of Texas sent me some Southern favorites. Hot-water cornbread to go with Southern-style turnips greens with salt pork. And for the sweet tooth, a favorite of the South--Pecan Pie. You'll also find recipes for Becky's Lemonade Pie (yes, the same one she fed Frank in my enovel - Breaking TWIG), and Capt. Wendy's Redneck Gumbo. A lady ship captain from the bayous of Louisiana can't be wrong when it comes to making gumbo. Try one or all and let me know how it turns out by emailing me at : email@example.com
So for some great Southern recipes, check out the recipe page on my blog: www.deborahepperson.weebly.com
If you have a recipe you'd like to share, send it along. Only your first name, first letter of your last name , and state will be listed to protect your privacy. Or just send your state name if you like. Heck, we keep it simple and friendly here.
Have a great weekend, and keep those emails coming. I read every one of them.
