Thanks to all of you who took the time to visit and comment on last week's Teaser Tuesday! The winner, chosen at random, of a SEA GLASS WINTER Advanced reading copy, is -- ta dah! -- Sharon, who's going to be on a plane on her way to California when the book comes out. Sharon, if you'll email your post office mailing address to joann @ joannross dot com, we'll get your copy out to you!
Here's this week's excerpt, which is a scene from the Shelter Bay booster club's fund-raising crab feed at Bon Temps. . And as you'll be able to see, a few of the women in town have decided to help Dillon out in his quest to win Claire over. Enjoy:
“Dillon,” Charity said, snagging his arm, “come sit by Claire and keep her company. She doesn’t know that many people yet.”
“Well, there is another thing.”
Make that a siren. “What?”
But as they entered Bon Temps and Ken Curtis called him to the bandstand to give a speech about the upcoming season, Dillon bent his head and murmured next to her ear, “Just think about it, Claire.”
Because it's going to be crazy at the post office for the next couple weeks, and I want to save Mail Boy, aka Sweetie. having to stand in line forever, I'm going to be continuing Tuesday Teasers but instead I'll be giving away a book of beautiful Oregon coast photos to one lucky person who comments. The winner will be announced next Tuesday here, on Facebook, (where I chat with readers almost daily), and twitter and the book will go out the first of next month.
Meanwhile, I hope you'll come back for the Friday photo. And just in case you missed last week's photo, It's so gorgeous I'm sharing a second look. It's Shelter Bay's Sea Mist restaurant waterfront restaurant, decorated for the holidays.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
