The Crossroads Novels of author Shannon Winslow! #CoffeeWithColette @JaneAustenSays

Good morning, dear readers!   I am thrilled to be having this fellow Austen Variations Author  join me for Coffee again so I can get to know her even better. My guest today is the gorgeous and talented Shannon Winslow , who has not one but TWO new releases to share! (Meanwhile, my muse has been on vacation...)

If you are able, I hope you will come see me. I will also have my novels available as eBooks - both ePub and mobi - on flash drives with darling little book charms! I may be having a difficult time blogging, but fortunately I do know quite a few other authors; and I love to host them on my blog ( check them out here ).
