Summer Fun in August

Quote for Today: “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Summer Fun in August, The Writing Life, Carolyn Bowen Author

This month has been refreshing as I’ve gone about updating my marketing program for my novels. At the same time, I realized that I needed to get back on my writing path. Several ideas for new books have floated across my mind. Within the next few weeks, I’ll begin the process of putting my thoughts on paper. I’m hoping this new book will come together as easily as “The Long Road Home.” Please send some positive vibes my way! (smiles)

Latest updates – Cross-Ties Adventure is now rocking new covers. Yes, I did two! It was a difficult decision (smiles). I liked the way each one turned out so I did one for the Kindle version and another for the paperback. Let me know what you think!

Happy Summer Days Ahead

Quote of the Day: “One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.” Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Summer,CM Bowen Author, The Writing LifeSummer officially begins on Tuesday, June 20th in the Northern Hemisphere. It fades away on September 22nd after several wonderful months of frolicking fun in the blissful dreamy days and nights. To have a book tucked away for reading in nature, and while fulfilling the everyday demands of life, is a delightful release from cares.

Not to get ahead of myself, but…

Panama City Beach FL, The Writing Life, Carolyn M. Bowen Author

I’m ready for summer fun and time with my family at our favorite gathering place, the beaches of NW Florida. Not to be taken away from enjoying every moment of the springtime, it is nice to have nice events to look forward too and great books to read.

Let me tell you about my latest mystery-thriller, The Long Road Home. You’ll instantly be taken on a journey with Kate as she discovers things are not as they appear. Her life is grand or so she believes. Kate’s beautiful, loved by her prominent family, has great digs in Charleston and a handsome fiancé on the fast track to becoming the next super lawyer. The brutal truth facing her includes murder, betrayal, conspiracy, and lots of looking over her shoulder. (Charleston Sunset, Photo Credit: Sean Clyde, C & C Media)

Charleston SC SunsetGet ready to enjoy The Long Road Home. The scenic places in the low country and the beaches of North FL will provide excellent prompts for summer travel. You’ll be intrigued with the mystery surrounding her as she takes The Long Road Home.

“Long Lovely Read” A 5-Star Review for “The Long Road Home” by Carolyn M. Bowen

The Long Road Home, Carolyn M. Bowen, Author
About The Long Road Home-  Genre: Mystery, Suspense/Thriller, Crime Fiction and Romantic Suspense

The Long Road Home: A Southern twist of fate where lust, love, money, murder and revenge play key roles.

Blurb: Kate’s life was in turmoil after the death of her parents. She’d always been protected and sheltered by them. Suddenly she finds herself with a conniving fiancé living under her roof, a powerful businessman with terrorist ties from across the ocean trying to kill her and more family secrets than most American politicians. She was also unaware that a half-brother she knew nothing of was about to enter her life. Her situation was getting precarious right at the moment she was least able to cope with it.
