Tuesday Coffee With Tonya and Weekly Giveaway

Family and the importance of family has always been the center of my books. I'm sure many of you have heard, write what you know. Well...I know that I love family (my husband, my kiddos, and my parents) so much that I try really hard for that to show through my work. It's the only way I know to give them a tribute on how much I do love.

I'd like to wish all the fathers and the men in our lives that play a big part in shaping who we are.

Below is an amazing recipe you can make for that special male figure that will tickle their tummy to death! My country sausage gravy never disappoints and I'll be making it on Father's Day.

Have a wonderful week!

Good morning!
I hope that y'all've gotten a chance to read Beaches, Bungalows & Burglaries. I've been spending all my time in Normal, Kentucky and I've completely fallen in love with these characters! I can see many, many more books in this series beyond the five I've already planned. 
Now that Eddy and I are empty nesting, we are really finding new things we enjoy to do together. I'm not sure if y'all remember that we bought me a bike last year. Eddy likes to ride bikes, leisurely, and I've been giving it a try. We did a twelve mile bike ride on Saturday morning...of course we had to stop by the Coffee Shop on the way home. Hahhahhaa!!!
Scooter & Charlie update: Scooter's liver and bladder infections have all cleared up. I'm so grateful for that. He's learning his way around the house since he's become blind. I had to realize that I had to just let him do it and not pick him up to go to every room. Each day he's getting bet…

Tuesday Coffee With Tonya and Weekly Gift Card Giveaway!

Good morning! I hope you had a great week. I've been busy getting the release for BEACHES, BUNGALOWS & BURGLARIES ready for release this Friday. 
Over the weekend, all four boys were home for supper. It was fun getting around the table and talking. Eddy and I are just floored how much they've grown up. I took a couple of the boys (well...men) clothes shopping. I have to say that I'm a little thankful I didn't have a girl. My boys were in and out. When I told a couple of my girlfriends who have daughters, they laughed saying how their daughters love to shop all day long. I'm not built for that. Hahhaa!!

Beaches, Bungalows, & Burglaries Chapter One

One

“A campground?” I gulped back a good hissy fit, because no one could ever underestimate the power of a good hissy fit, something I’ve tried really hard not to do in years. “As in tiny little metal houses and port-a-potties?” ​ “Well, I think they have a toilet in them” said Stanley Shelton, my lawyer. He eased back in his big fancy, wingback leather chair with his elbows resting on the wooden arms and his fingers drumming against each other. The grey pinstriped suit was of the finest materials and the nice crystal cufflinks were the touch it needed that screamed successful lawyer. “I think the toilet is small, but you’re small.” He rubbed his hand over his bald head and then proceeded to draw his hand over his mustache and beard. ​ I tried as hard as I could to keep it together, but my composure was under attack. ​ “What about my house in the Hamptons? I’ll just go there.” I let out a sigh of relief. It was a perfect plan. “I’m desperately going to miss the New York City apartment, …

Tuesday Coffee With Tonya, Weekly Giveaway and RELEASE DAY!!

Mornin' Y'all!!
Can you believe it's another release day???? It's a busy month with THREE book releases! I had no idea how busy I was going to be when I signed a contract with two different publishers. But I have to say that I'm so incredibly grateful to be working and so humbled to be traditionally published. 
Last week I was so blessed to share CAKE AND PUNISHMENT with my group of friends last Tuesday! We had Gigi's cupcakes and coffee. I gave each one of them a copy of the book and we had so much fun talking about baking. 
Over the weekend, I was blessed to spend time with my boys for Mother's Day. The best part of the day~I can truly see each of them growing up into the best young men. Eddy and I talked after they left about how much we can see a difference in them and how different our conversations are. They are adults and I just can't believe it. 


Don't forget to stop by my author page every Wednesday for the mid-week Tonya Kappes Book Givea…

Tuesday Coffee With Tonya and Weekly Giveaway! CAKE AND PUNISHMENT RELEASE DAY!!!

It was a state holiday in Kentucky over the weekend! I'm not talking Cinco De Mayo, it was DERBY WEEKEND!!!

We went to a Derby party and I had to bet on My Boy Jack....duh....for the name only! I'm glad I didn't bet much, since I lost. But we still had fun, even had a Mint Julip along with good friends. I even bake my Kentucky Derby Pie to take as a dessert. Be sure to scroll down to grab that recipe! YUMMMMIEEEE!

We also went to my nephew's high school baseball game. It was his first time pitching and his school was playing my children's alma mater high school. My nephew did great and he was so happy we were there. Of course, I yelled and cheered him on the entire time.

I also want to thank everyone for responding to the Facebook post about what I should binge watch on Hulu. The Handmaid's Tale won and OMG....we watched the entire first season and started the second season. I'm still getting used to Hulu, so the second season is the current season and the …
