Detour Trail, my frontier adventure/romance, is on sale (half price) at Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/360381 until July 31. Lorrie forges her own trail after starting out on the Oregon Trail.
I just got the June issue of True West Magazine; it’s another great issue full of historical articles and photos. One of those articles–the background of the murderous Bender family–especially interested me because while I don’t recall them specifically, I must have been aware of them or others possibly because I included a similar situation in Lorrie’s adventures in Detour Trail.
Detour Trail review excerpt:
“This book is certainly filled with a lot of adventure and drama. And I love that the main character, Lorrie, is one gutsy chick! She is definitely someone I would want to have with me if I was traveling anywhere!
This story gives us an honest view of what life might have bee like for those travelers. Everything wasn’t all daisies. They were some hard times and this book does tell of all that!”
My novels include Detour Trail, a western, and Strike Three, my post-apocalyptic novel; and I’m delighted to have my audiobook, Sugar Time, out in a new edition as an ebook and a paperback; this edition includes all four Sugar Sweet time travel stories. (See below for ordering info.) And now one of my novels that has been sitting on an editor’s desk, has been requested by the editor (that is, the full ms). And I’m working on my latest novel that just needs a little more tweaking–oh, plus the last chapter–so I can submit that one!

I found a new Detour Trail review recently: Detour Trail review: http://booklikes.com/tag/joy-v-smith
I really like this sign idea that I found on PhotoFunia; it fits Detour Trail, my western novel, so well because Lorrie made her own trail when she left the Oregon Trail.
