Welcome to the online home of Audra Jennings, a book publicist and crafter. Here I share about both. I hope you'll find books you'll want to read and crafts you will want to order. I live a rather boring, single life. At times I would like to think I am humorous. In the past, blogging about current seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette were a big part of the blog. I'm giving that up though. I just can't handle it anymore.
Join the tour for Jennifer Deibel's A Dance in Donegal
I'm so excited for Jennifer Deibel! She and I worked together several years ago, and I know she's been working towards this book release for a long time. I'm putting together a blog tour for her, and I hope you'll join!
Jennifer's debut release, A Dance in Donegal will be available on February 2 from Revell. This is going to be an eBook only tour, and since the release is coming really soon, I'll send you the NetGalley widget ASAP. I have it in hand and ready to send!
You can post your review any day during the month of February.
On January 29, I'll send you more information that you can use in your post and a link to the form for you to submit your tour links.
All her life, Boston-born Moira Doherty has relished her mother's descriptions of the Emerald Isle. When her mother dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1920, Moira is compelled to fulfill her dying wish--that she become the teacher in Ballymann, the beloved village in Donegal, Ireland, she's heard so much about.
After an arduous voyage, Moira begins a challenging new job in an unfamiliar and ancient country. Though a few locals offer a warm welcome, others are distanced by superstition and suspicion. Rumors about Moira's mother are unspoken in her presence but threaten to derail everything she's journeyed to Ballymann to do. Moira must rely on the kindness of a handful of friends--and the strength of Sean, an unsettlingly handsome thatcher who keeps popping up unannounced--as she seeks to navigate a life she'd never dreamed of . . . but perhaps was meant to live.
