Happy Boxing Day ~ and giveaway!

Laura FrantzUncategorized

In honor of Boxing Day in the UK, I’m giving away a basket full of Scottish things! Perhaps the most tempting item is the novella, A Wreath of Snow, a Scottish story set in Victorian times by our very own Liz Curtis Higgs!  Also included are a vintage teacup and saucer from Collingwoods of England, established in 1794 (my favorite …

Scotland in the snow…

Laura FrantzUncategorized

Wherever you go, go with all your heart. ~Anonymous Left Seattle on a rainy Saturday and arrived in Glasgow on a rainy Sunday… My favorite spot (there were so many!) was right here by the fire at Cameron House on Loch Lomond… After dinner that first night I took a cold walk. Felt like I was caught in the middle of …

Wheest! Scotland!

Laura FrantzUncategorized

I’ll soon be setting off for Scotland:) In 18th-century days, a ship’s journey would take about 8 weeks ~ if all went well. Often it did not! I’m thankful for air travel these days though I do love the romance and drama of old ships. I’ll be flying from Seattle to Newark, New Jersey where I’ll meet up with a friend …

A joyous Eden…and a new title!

Laura FrantzUncategorized

I like to think of this photo as a joyous Eden when she spies Silas:) Can you blame him for being smitten in turn? This morning (after one of those weeks!), photographer/designer, Brandon Hill, blessed me by posting a montage of the cover shoot for Love’s Reckoning from 400 or so photos taken last December. I. Am. So. Delighted:) And …

Belle on a Budget!

Laura FrantzUncategorized

Ever so often a kindred, book-loving spirit comes along who knocks my creative socks off:) Christy is one of those. She has a wonderful site where she showcases her love for Southern Sassy Things and does just what her banner beckons – invites you to pull up a rocking chair and sip some sweet tea and indugle in some book banter. I feel …

Book clubs!

Laura FrantzUncategorized

From the time I met with my very first book club four years ago (shown here with hostess Judy at her beach house), I’ve enjoyed my contacts with every one of them whether in person or by phone/Skype. Most even understand my southern accent;) As another novel releases, I wanted to post a huge THANK YOU to the church groups and clubs …
