Leap Year Announcement


February 29th.

Once every four years. That’s all we get to see of this date. For all of you celebrating your birthday today, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

It’s a bright, sunny, and warm day here in Oklahoma and I hope you’re having a wonderful day wherever you are. May you be surrounded by family and friends who are spoiling you rotten. Hey, they/we celebrate every year. They should make your day extra special. Don’t you think so? Yeah, me, too. 😉


Since this is Leap Year, and since I haven’t actually had a new release in a few years, thought this would be the perfect day for this post.

I’ve been waiting for news from my editor and the publisher on the status of TANGLED PROMISES. I know they’re working on the final stages of the book, but I ‘think’ I have one-more round of edits to check/do. Think being the operative word. I’m not sure.

I’ve been so caught up in the final stages of the bathroom remodel, plus the re-roofing on my house, then the repairs on the inside from the water leak, that I find my brain drifting. But man, it’s hard to keep my mind on anything with banging from the roofers (and the entire house shaking when they drop a roll of felt paper on it), then paint fumes. Yeah. My bad.

That said, since the ball is still in the publisher’s court, and since I don’t have the release date yet, I thought I’d grace you with the book cover. So without further ado, ta-da!!


Can’t you see yourself getting lost among the hills and valleys of the Ozark Mountains (like the couple who practically melt into the foggy mountain)? It is truly beautiful country.

I can’t wait for you to explore those mountains along with Melody Rose, who grew up in the sleepy little town of Rock Ledge, and former Chicago Police Detective Jake Bennett, who is now the town’s sheriff. What draws them together? What keeps them apart? What evil lurks that can destroy them?

Okay, that’s it for now. I hope you’ll all go forth and have a fantastic Leap Year Day!

Thanks for stopping by.

About Linda Trout

I'm a retired accountant who loves a little space around me. What better way to think of new story ideas than under a tall tree, birds chirping, gofers digging, dogs barking, and cats demanding to be in your lap? When I'm totally bored, I climb on my Harley and go for a ride. That'll blow the cobwebs out of your brain.

  1. Congratulations, Linda! Sounds great! I’ll be looking for it when it comes out. We have repairs going on, too. Siding and gutters. The banging and ripping away of vinyl and metal is quite distracting. Especially at nap time! I’ve even had lamps coming unplugged and pictures falling off the wall! Hope you are well and happy! -mj

      Thanks, M.J. I hope the release date isn’t too far down the road.
      Glad you’re getting new siding and gutters, but wow, sounds like your work is even more disruptive than mine. Lamps coming unplugged? Yikes! That’s some rough work. But it will all be worth it in the end.
