Five years ago this month, my first book debuted. A book tour followed, with stops in Nashville, Tennessee; Kansas City; Oklahoma City; and the small town that inspired the book—Chickasha, Oklahoma. Lip Reader is a work of fiction, but the story has some true elements. The main character, Sapphie, is a reflection of me as a child, circa 1984. Characters Grandpa and Grandma Bebop are similar to my late grandparents, who lived most of their lives in southwestern Oklahoma. And the setting for Lip Reader is…southwestern Oklahoma.
To celebrate Lip Reader’s fifth anniversary, I am giving away *five* eBook copies to five faithful Lipreading mom readers. All you have to do is answer this question for me in the comments section: What were *you* doing five years ago this month? Winners will be announced soon on my blog, as well as my Facebook and Twitter pages. I look forward to reading your comments.
