Spring forward!

By Lynn McPherson

Spring is emerging and I couldn’t be more grateful for it. No matter what is happening in the world, seasons change and time moves forward. Daffodils and tulips are coming up. Beauty surrounds us in spite of the dark days.

It is a great time to discover a new book, a new series, or a new author. Have you been looking? There are so many great new stories emerging, it may be time to peruse your local bookstore—online, of course.

Independent bookstores have been working hard to meet the demands of social distancing. You may be surprised to find that many are temporarily delivering right to your door.

My local independent book seller, A Different Drummer, has closed its doors, but is providing free delivery. As a big supporter of local authors like myself, it is important to keep them in mind.

Not sure what to read? Why not check out some of The Stiletto Gang members’ new books?  With so many fabulous options, it could take a whole day trying to choose which one.

We can all do our part to help each other. If staying home and reading a book is a start, you will not hear me complaining.

Take care of yourself and be well.

  1. Great idea, Lynn, and perfect message. You never have time to worry about the present when you're in the midst of a good book! Thanks!

    1. Hi Paula! Thanks for your note. We're all in this together, right?

  2. I agree completely. Read, read, read, and support your local bookstores whenever possible. Cheers!
