Grateful to Sally Cronin for featuring an excerpt from Amanda on the Danube: The Sounds of Music as well as a fabulous review. I wrote this book in the middle of a move to another country. Writing the story kept me grounded and sane as we settled in and learned to live within a new culture. You can see why this book has a special place in my heart. Enjoy.

Thanks so much, Sally!!

Sounds like an exciting story. Grest to see Smorgasbord blog is promoting it!

Thank you so much!!

Sounds intriguing, Darlene.

Excellent extract. Sally does such a great job of sharing.

Sally is amazing. I’m glad you enjoyed the extract. xo

You are an inspiration Darlene. I think if I had been writing anything during an international move I would have lost my sanity rather than kept it.

Thanks, Sue. I really don’t know how I did it. But it gave my life some normality I guess as everything else was so unfamiliar. xo

What a great extract, full of action. And I loved the setting.

Thanks, Cath. So please you enjoyed it.

That’s so nice of Sally. She’s amazing. Now to head over and read the extract and review. 🙂

Thanks, Diane. I so agree, Sally is awesome and a good friend to us all.

Sounds like a lovely story. Even the cover is beautiful! ❤

Thanks so much. My publisher does a fab job of designing the covers of my books. Thanks so much for stopping in.

Love how Sally shares your talent!! Well deserved and I am with Sue….couldn’t have kept my mind while moving internationally and writing a book! My hats off to you!!

Thanks, Kirt. I guess after all the craziness and self-doubt, I could sit down and write for an hour or so at the end of the day and feel settled. I guess I´m a bit weird.

Not at all…it’s called being human and gifted!!👍

This sounds so exciting, Darlene!

Thanks, Jennie. xo

You’re welcome, Darlene. 🙂

This is such a nice way to promote writers! Thanks, Sally. And Darlene, this sounds wonderful. Amanda is so cool!

Thanks so much, Amy!!
