Tonya Mystery Theatre Debut!

Seriously! I had so much fun doing the Divabetic Late Night Mystery Theatre. I never knew meeting Max Szadek in NYC while at Book Expo of America, it would turn into an acting gig.

Max came up to me at my booth and introduced himself. He said he had an idea and wanted to know if he could get in touch with me to discuss. Of course I said yes because that's what I do. BUT I was thrilled the first time Max called and asked me to help him with a mystery script and to play myself.

Max was so amazing. He took my suggestions and ran with it. He had a cast of characters and some of them were REAL actors. . .not me! We had three "dress rehearsals" and it was so much fun! I can't express how much fun it was. My father is diabetic so it was a no brainer to help spread the word about diabetes and how to GLAM MORE, FEAR LESS!!

Be sure to listen below if you missed the broadcast!

  1. Loved the broadcast, and you needed no introduction! :) I played it back at home and my daughter was walking in and out of my room but as soon as you came on she said ," Mom, that's Tonya! Is she a radio star now, too?"

Easter and the Derby?

Okay..
Easter is in April and the Derby is in May! But here in Kentucky and the south, we don't have Easter without the Derby pie!



Kentucky Derby Pie
(from my mama~Linda Lowry)
My mama’s Derby Pie is smack your mama good! It’s a southern pie with walnuts and chocolate chips. You can use pecans in substitute for the walnuts, but I really like my walnuts!



Ingredients: ½ cup melted butter
1 cup sugar ½ cup flour 2 beaten eggs 1 tsp. vanilla extract ¾ cup Walnuts or pecans (your choice not both!) ¾ cup chocolate chips (or more if you really want it gooey!)
Directions Mix in the order that’s written under the ingredients. This is very important. Pour the mixture into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.



Enjoy this amazing video of an artist decorating eggs. 



Happy happy Easter!!

And they're off....

WOW! I had a super busy weekend. It was filled with fun and fear!  On Saturday our son Austin was in charge of his fraternity alumni/parent weekend at Keeneland Racetrack.


Now...y'all know I love horse racing and Keeneland. I grew up going to the races and Keeneland is literally fifteen minutes from my childhood home. Friends of my family started Keeneland and still own it today. So...I'm pretty at home there. 
It was opening weekend, which meant there were probably around 40k people there. 40,000 PEOPLE!!! 

(These little jockeys are so cute. They have the names of winners on their little boards.) 
The food line is 1 1/2 hours long to stand in...not to mention the bathroom. You don't think that sounds like fun?? It is! We get there and tailgate on "The Hill." It's the cute name for the grassy area on Keeneland where you can tailgate all day long and never see a horse. But it's the thrill and inside that I love. 
There are two races an hour so there's …

How To Get Reviews For Your Novel

I don't care what anyone says....reviews are important.



I hear a lot of authors that say they don't rely on reviews to read their books and they are full of it. That is why we have reviews and review sites like Goodreads, right?

I'm not saying that you have to read the reviews your novel gets, but reviews are important. They will help you market your novel, especially if you are self published.

Nowadays, more and more review sites are accepting self published authors to review. So you better be sure that your book is the best it can possibly be or you won't get the reviews you want.

Regardless, you need reviews.

Here are a few ways I get reviews for my novels:

1) Goodreads giveaways.

Taking advantage of the giveaway on Goodreads is a great way to get reviews. I offer three copies of my book when it's released using this Goodreads feature. I hold the giveaway for a month and get thousands of requests.

Once Goodreads announces the three winners, I send them a book co…
