About Sugarplum Way (Harmony Harbor)

Mass Market Paperback: 368 pages

Publisher: Forever (October 31, 2017)

“Heartfelt and delightful!” -RaeAnne Thayne, New York Times bestselling author
.
Romance writer Julia Landon knows how to write a happily-ever-after. Creating one for herself is a whole different story. But after a surprising–and surprisingly passionate–kiss under the mistletoe at Harmony Harbor’s holiday party last year, Julia thought she might have finally found her very own chance at true love. Until she learns her Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broodingly Handsome has sworn off relationships. Well, if she can’t have him in real life, Julia knows just how to get the next best thing….
Aidan’s only priority is to be the best single dad ever. And this year, he plans to make the holidays magical for his little girl, Ella Rose. But visions of stolen kisses under the mistletoe keep dancing in his head, and when he finds out Julia has written him into her latest novel, he can’t help imagining the possibilities of a future together. Little does he know, though, Julia has been keeping a secret that threatens all their dreams. Luckily, ’tis the season for a little Christmas magic.

John Burley, author of The Quiet Child, on tour August 2017

Posted By on August 8, 2017

About The Quiet Child

• Paperback: 304 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (August 8, 2017)

From the award-winning author of The Absence of Mercy, comes a gripping and darkly psychological novel about family, suspicion, and the price we are willing to pay to protect those we love the most.

It’s the summer of 1954, and the residents of Cottonwood, California, are dying. At the center of it all is six-year-old Danny McCray, a strange and silent child the townspeople regard with fear and superstition, and who appears to bring illness and ruin to those around him. Even his own mother is plagued by a disease that is slowly consuming her.

Sheriff Jim Kent, increasingly aware of the whispers and rumors surrounding the boy, has watched the people of his town suffer—and he worries someone might take drastic action to protect their loved ones. Then a stranger arrives, and Danny and his ten-year-old brother, Sean, go missing. In the search that follows, everyone is a suspect, and the consequences of finding the two brothers may be worse than not finding them at all.

Kristopher Dukes, author of The Sworn Virgin, on tour August 2017

Posted By on August 8, 2017

About The Sworn Virgin

• Paperback: 352 pages
• Publisher: William Morrow Paperbacks (August 8, 2017)

Dukes’s gripping historical novel tells the tale of a desperate Albanian woman who will do whatever it takes to keep her independence and seize control of her future…even if it means swearing to remain a virgin for her entire life.

When eighteen-year-old Eleanora’s father is shot dead on the cobblestone streets of 1910 Albania, Eleanora must abandon her dream of studying art in Italy as she struggles to survive in a remote mountain village with her stepmother Meria.

Nearing starvation, Meria secretly sells Eleanora into marriage with the cruel heir of a powerful clan. Intent on keeping her freedom, Eleanora takes an oath to remain a virgin for the rest of her life—a tradition that gives her the right to live as a man: she is now head of her household and can work for a living as well as carry a gun. Eleanora can also participate in the vengeful blood feuds that consume the mountain tribes, but she may not be killed—unless she forsakes her vow, which she has no intention of ever doing.

But when an injured stranger stumbles into her life, Eleanora nurses him back to health, saving his life—yet risking her own as she falls in love with him…

“It’s hard to believe that the culture Dukes describes was ever real, but the amount of research she put into this book definitely shines through. The story remains fascinating throughout; readers will definitely find it difficult to put this novel down.”—San Francisco Book Review

Announcing Our Ambassador Program!

Posted By on August 7, 2017

We are incredibly excited to announce a new program at TLC Book Tours. Since TLC was first founded nine years ago, we have made a point to offer an author a free tour approximately once a year. We believe that you get back what you put into the universe. In that spirit, we are formalizing our yearly effort into an ambassador program. We are really excited about it, and hope you will be too!

The way the ambassador program works is the chosen author gets a number of free services in order to experience what we offer. They are then our ‘ambassador’ for a year, telling other authors about their experience. If an author books a tour and mentions the ambassador’s name, the ambassador will get a credit towards a future tour.

You can read more about the program on our Ambassador page, and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us by leaving a comment, which will not be published, or my emailing us at lisamunley@ca.rr.com or trish@tlcbooktours.com. We look forward to choosing our ambassador for the this next term!
