Cute Baby Sells Jane Darrowfield

by Barb, who hopes that when you read this she is in Milos, Greece on the first cruise of her life

Those of you with long memories may remember my Facebook campaign, Cute Babies Sell Clammed Up. I wrote all about it in a post here. Back in 2013 my first granddaughter, Viola Jane, was new and my brother and cousin had new grandchildren, too. We all posed with our progeny, and the crowd went wild!

So as you may have heard, I have a new series, Jane Darrowfield, Professional Busybody, and a new granddaughter, Etta Ann. So I thought to myself…

I have no idea what it means that every time I get a new series, I get a new grandchild–either for the prospect of more series or for the prospect of more grandchildren. But I am certainly willing to go with it!

Readers: One lucky commenter will win an Advanced Reader Copy of Jane Darrowfield, Professional Busybody. However, the winner won’t be notified or the book shipped until I get back at the end of the month!

  1. This is a marvelous and very entertaining pitch! Etta Ann is just adorable! The book is fabulous!

  2. How precious and what a fabulous idea! Especially love the one photo with the little left foot in the photo. Exciting news when there is a new book, but a new grandbaby makes it’s over the top. With ideas for new books in your head, there may be many branches to your family tree in the future. 🙂

    Can’t wait for the opportunity to read “Professional Busybody”. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.

    Pray you have a fabulous time on your cruise and excited to see lots of photos.
