TUESDAY COFFEE WITH TONYA AND GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY












​​SLXLM
Happy Tuesday!


I have to say that over the past week I've been so boring to people! Hahhaa! Only because I'm deeply into writing this camper series. I swear it's been so fun.


Those of you who love the Divorced Diva Mystery Series will LOVE this series. There are five women in the Camper and Criminals Cozy Mystery Series that span the age generation like the Divorced Divas.

The Divorced Divas met a divorcee meeting in the undercroft of the local Baptist Church and in the Camper Series, the women met at The Laundry Club, the local laundry mat. The Laundry Club is the it place to be in Normal, Kentucky. There's a coffee station, TV's, jigsaw puzzles, and they even have a book club that meets there.


See why I've been deep into writing this? It's so fun and I know y'all are going to love this series.
Even my mama has gotten into it and got me the cutest knick-knack!






I spent some time with my kiddos and it was so good being with them. They are busy getting their projects complete for finals. Jack even video interviewed me. Nope, not about being an author, it was about divorce (since I've been divorced as you know) and how I thought it impacted his life. It was kinda eye opening on what I thought and what he thought.

To round out the weekend, I talked Eddy into opening up the pool even though the temperatures are cold and it's rainy here all week. Still...it makes me feel like I'm putting good ju-ju out to Mother Nature.




OCULAR MIGRAINE UPDATE:
A few of you sent me emails requesting an update on my ocular migraines because you remembered I was going back to my doctor. Good news! With my eye doctor and regular doctor talking to each other and after I took my blood pressure daily for the past couple of weeks (because I was having them almost every other day recently) and due to personal stress, they realized it was my high blood pressure creating this ocular migraine. There is a treatment plan with new blood pressure medication and a migraine medication (yet another pill). Since I've been on the new medication, I'm happy to report that my blood pressure is so good and (knock on wood) no migraines! Let's hope this is the solution.

Tuesday Coffee with Tonya and Weekly Amazon Gift Card Giveway

BE STILL MY HEART!!!!

I can't even tell you how much I love these covers!!!


​​SLXLM

Readers ask me all the time how I come up with covers for my self published titles. For this series it was different. I have a wonderful cover artist, Jessica Fischer, that I work with on the other series and we work back and forth until we have a cover.


This series was actually done by artist Mariah Sinclair. She makes a lot of premade covers and I always keep an eye out for different premade covers because they are usually half cheaper than what I normally pay and sometimes they speak to me. Not to mention, they are buy here and get now. I'm a buy here now gal! It's like window shopping and going in to buy it. That's how these titles came to be.


I'd been throwing around this idea of a new series for the past six months about a book club set in a laundry mat. I know that sounds weird and how does the campers go with it....but trust me, it works and it's so funny!! I'm loving the series.


Maybe the campers spoke to me because when I was a kiddo my parents had a Winnebago. I'm not going to lie....as a kid I hated that thing! And I'm not a camper. Like my sleuth in this series, Mae West, I too think camping involves room service. I hope you are as excited as I am. You can actually go ahead and preorder BEACHES, BUNGALOWS, AND BURGLARIES by clicking here or >>>>> amzn.to/2GUqwoJ

Scooter update! Thank y'all so much for reaching out to see how Scooter is doing. Yesterday we did a curve diabetes test on him, which is taking his blood sugar every two hours. He's such a doll. I have to take blood from his lip, tail and pads of his feet. He sits so still while I'm doing it. He's currently on 7 units twice a day of insulin. The curve test showed that his sugar is still high so I'm sure the vet will up the dosage. He's back to playing and wanting to go for his walks. Everything is looking GREAT!

Feral Cat update:
All of the messages on my Facebook about the feral mama cat and six kittens have been so kind. The Saving Grace Animal Rescue came over the weekend to check out the situation. Mama and the babies were good. Mama got very leery of the have a heart trap. She jumped up on the porch and looked at it from all sides. Saturday morning she was gone and the babies too. I think she got so scared of the trap, she lost her trust in me and moved the kittens. She did come back to get fed, but I can't find the babies. I'm hoping to find them, but for now...I have no clue where you moved them. I'll keep you posted.
