Great job, Sunny. Next week I’ll be interviewing OTP author Mary Montague Sikes, and talking about her Passenger To Paradise series.

Marilyn Meredith a.k.a. F. M. Meredith said...

Whew, is right. Take a big breath. Good job.

I'll send along all of next week's stops.


Terry Ambrose said...

Another great job of summing up the week. A couple of OTP authors should be coming up in my National Crime Fiction column on including Morgan St. James and Walt Luce.

Lorna Collins - Author said...

Wow! We're a busy group! Glad to see so many of us are getting the OTP name out to the public!

Excellent, just excellent! What a terrific idea, and so great to see what everyone is up to.

Sunny Frazier said...

You folks are awesome! The column writes itself because everyone is good about sending me their info ( Billie illustrates it with our awesome book covers and all that's left for us to is let the world know of our awesomeness.

Here's a big blast we received from one of my favorite sites, Kittling Books:

"I was quite chuffed (Britspeak for "surprised and thrilled") to learn that Sunny Frazier, author and acquistions editor for Oak Tree Press has begun her very own version of my weekly round-up. In it, you can find out what the Oak Tree Press authors have been up to-- and if you're anything like me, you'll find some new authors to read. (I didn't just hear someone groan, did I? Don't forget, I'm an Enabler!) Here's the first week's round-up, and here's the second week."

She gave the links and now people across the pond know of us.
