Appearances on Two Websites: Judy Penz Sheluk and Rita Lee Chapman

Today, I share the news of two websites I’m appearing on.

ONE

Several weeks ago, Judy Penz Sheluk,  mystery author of Where There’s a Will, offered a spot in her New Release Mondays to announce the release of Northern Survival. I accepted, and today that post appeared. You can read the post here: New Release Mondays: Northern Survival by Diane McGyver.

Judy’s book is scheduled for release on November 10th and is available for pre-order. If you love mysteries, check it out.

TWO

The Poinciana Tree Rita Lee Chapman

Also several weeks ago, Rita Lee Chapman offered an interview for her blog. I answered several questions, including which of my characters is my favourite and which book did I enjoy writing the most. I also shared an amusing story about the guinea fowl I once owned. They are peculiar birds.

The interview appeared on Sunday (Australian time) and Saturday evening (Nova Scotia time). Rita is the author of The Poinciana Tree, and I interviewed her on this blog for Wednesday’s Word.

You can read my interview by Rita here: Author Guest: Diane McGyver.

Rita’s book is also a mystery, so if you love mysteries, it’s your day.

Have a wonderful Monday, and happy reading. And, of course, happy writing.
