""I kept my co-author, Nadine Collier, trapped in my recording closet until she narrated all of her parts."
SALIDA, Colo. (PRWEB) November 25, 2020
Laurel McHargue, author of the award-winning series Waterwight, the award-winning short story collection Dark Ebb: Grim Tales, and her latest book, Peace by Piece: 10 Lessons from a Jigsaw Puzzle!--co-authored with Nadine Collier--will be available to autograph her books at The Book Haven in Salida on December 5th from 2-5 p.m.
"Personally autographed books make great gifts for every occasion," said McHargue, "and The Book Haven in Salida has quite a variety for every reading level."
One of McHargue's goals is to publish books in as many genres as possible. "As much as I love reading different genres, I also love the challenge of creating stories with different moods and points of view."
A former Army Officer and former Language Arts teacher, McHargue now spends her time writing, hosting the podcast Alligator Preserves, gardening, puzzling, and raising ducks. "Never in my life did I see myself as a duck wrangler, but now I can't imagine a day without them. My five Khaki Campbell ducks make me laugh every day, and now they're gifting us with daily fresh eggs!"
She plans to write a children's book about her ducks someday, but for now, she is working on a new science fiction series. "It'll be set in the future and will explore what I learned as a cadet at West Point and my years of service in the Army from a different perspective. I'm really excited about this new challenge!"
McHargue is also excited about the upcoming launch of her first audiobook. "I kept my co-author, Nadine Collier, trapped in my recording closet until she narrated all of her parts. Our book Peace by Piece: 10 Lessons from a Jigsaw Puzzle! will be available in audiobook format soon!"
"Also, Nadine and I are offering the gift of a free Kindle download of our e-book from November 25-29. If you enjoy it, you may want to share the paperback with a friend!"
McHargue would like to remind everyone planning to visit to follow public health guidelines for social distancing and wearing masks. "Let's get through this holiday season safely--and with some new books!"
Laurel McHargue lives and writes in Colorado's Rocky Mountains and hosts the podcast Alligator Preserves. She also raises ducks. Follow her on her website and find her on social media. Her books are available on Amazon and from Ingram in e-versions and paperback.
