Events!

THE FORGIVING KIND by Donna Everhart
Since my last post almost a month ago (!) when I concluded the First Sentence Fridays, I’ve already been from the mountains to the Piedmont and down into South Carolina just yesterday. It was after I got home, I calculated I’d logged over a thousand miles of driving since February 5th, my official book launch date, but there are plenty more places to visit and exciting events to come.

One of my favorite things about a book releasing is not only the fact that readers can now enjoy what I’ve been talking about for months, I also get to meet some of them. Here are a few pictures I’ve taken so far. I admit, I’m not the best at remembering to do this, and then I hate when it’s all over, and I realize I didn’t capture certain moments.

Here’s a small collection from various events so far – although this doesn’t count a couple of book clubs I’ve visited. (because I forgot to get pictures! And someย of these are repeats if you follow me on Facebook)

For the book launch at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC. The cupcakes! Decorated with a cotton boll on top.

(where I also just found out the book is a bestseller!)

Support from family, friends, and new friends! (which is what I call people I don’t know. ๐Ÿ™‚ )


Handsome (son, Justin) and me!


The Women’s Fiction Writers Association “sistahs” who came to support me! Thank you, Bernie, Monica and Rebecca!


Display at Foggy Pine Books in Boone NC


The Foggy Pine Books event was for Trio 2019. Radney Foster, Eric Erdman‘s elbow, and the outline Shari Smith (who hates having her pic posted on FB) getting ready to kick off Trio.


It was standing room only at Foggy Pine. (some Trio authors in the mix)


These two were taken at the Broad Street Deli and Market in Dunn NC

Event at Pawley’s Island Friday, February 15th at the beautiful Pine Lakes Country Club.

Be sure to check my events page often in case I’m going somewhere close to you where we can meet. I update it regularly!

Happy reading!

    Looks like you’ve been enjoying yourself. If the planets ever align and I’m close to one of your events, I will definitely be there. I missed your online live interview the other day but played it later. As an aspiring (and presently querying writer), I especially enjoyed hearing about the inspiration for your books. Loved that Mr. Man made a brief appearance, too.
    And just want to add that I loved The Forgiving Kind and left a review on Goodreads and Amazon to let everyone know. Can’t wait for the next one with the moonshiners. LOL

      I truly have – hence the big ole grin. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope to meet you too – that would be GREAT. I saw your review and I really appreciated you left them. What you said was FANTASTIC and I can’t thank you enough!

    So much happiness and excitement! You must be exhausted. Take a breath, girl. I really hope to make it to your coast one of these days. XO

      I am feeling tired but good! I sure hope that works out too – or that meet in the middle plan. Somehow, some way, some day. xox0

    Dear Ms. Everhart, Just finished “The Forgiving Kind”. Amazingly powerful book! Thank you! There is one thing missing in my mind from what I know of farm families, the Creech’s didn’t have a dog. Dogs are protectors and companions, and I can’t imagine a farm without one. Sincerest Regards, BJ Murray

      Hello, BJ Murray,

      Thank you for reading! I’m glad you liked the book – and you make a very good point. I am a big dog lover, and in all honesty, I just couldn’t put one in that story. I couldn’t b/c of Frank Fowler. I “knew” he’d have to do something to it. If he’d pick on Sonny for being a girl/dowsing, target Daniel for being different, bully her brothers, he’d certainly have zoned in on the dog for whatever reason he wanted. As you can see, I’d thought about it, but . . . no way could I subject a fictitious animal to his meanness even while I put my characters in harms way. (isn’t that weird?)

      I’ll have to write about a dog in a story one of these days. In a good way! Thank you for reaching out – great comment!

        Ms. Everhart, I thought the same thing. You depicted that man so that there is no way that he wouldn’t have probably shot the dog. Dogs can detect a person that means harm to ones of its “pack”. I was certainly glad that you didn’t have that awful step-father molest Sonny, though it wouldn’t have been far from what did and does happen. I’ve put holds on your other books at the library, your ability to pull a person into the story is compelling, like someone pulling me into deep water, even if I can’t swim.

    You’re right. They know when their human is in trouble, and a dog would have instinctively protected that person. I could see Sonny being the dog’s “person,” and her intense dislike for Mr. Fowler would have alerted the dog to her/him (aside from its own animal instincts.)

    Thank you for reading my books BJ! (If I may call you that), and the analogy you use about water is music to my ears. The BEST compliment a writer can hear. I hope you will find my other stories just as compelling – but be forewarned – THE EDUCATION OF DIXIE DUPREE is a tough read from the perspective of what you may hope won’t happen. Well, all my stories are tough in their own way.

    I would love for you to leave a rating/review about what you think on Goodreads (if you are on that platform) or Amazon if you have time. Happy reading!

      Ms. Everhart, Will do about the rating/review. I returned the book to the library today, and told them what a powerful book it is, the librarian checked to see if it was on hold so that she could check it out, and it was, so she made sure she put a hold on it for herself. Thanks for the heads up on “The Education of Dixie Dupree! Sincerest Regards, BJ Murray
