Countdown to Stars to Lead Me Home By Peggy Webb

Only six weeks left to preorder Stars to Lead Me Home and save 40%. The book goes live June 4 and will be available for all e-readers. There will also be a print version, but I don’t have that pub date yet.

Early readers are raving about this book and telling me how much they love the three best friends, Maggie, Jean and Lillian. They describe how the story made them laugh and cry…and they are already asking for a sequel. I can’t make any promises on that. I can only promise that if you love this book half as much as I do, you’ll want to run out and tell all your friends. Here are the links to Amazon, B&N and Smashwords:

         Reviewers want to know if I drew on my own female friendships to create these characters. The answer is yes. Jean and Lillian and Maggie are based very loosely on my cousin, Martha Jo Patterson, and my friend, Alice Virginia (AV) Daniel, who sits besides me in the first soprano section of the church choir. Both are flaming redheads with sassy personalities to match. AV’s red hair is natural; but like Jean, Martha Jo changes her hair color as often as she changes air freshener in her car. She’ll tell you that, herself. She’s certainly no shrinking violet, which makes her a rich source for my writing as well as a good friend.

           There’s a hilarious scene when the three friends are exercising and Jean is holding forth on her battle to fight the signs of aging. Here’s a little inside info: When Jean reveals her beauty secret, it’s exactly what my cousin Martha Jo told me years ago. By the way, she says it’s dangerous to be around me; she never knows if she’s going to end up in a book.

           When I write, I always love to have fun with my characters. But this book has a serious side, too. Maggie is dealing with the aftermath of a long-time marriage that went so wrong, and Lillian is dealing with a major health issue. Still, if you’ve read my books, you know they are always hopeful. No downers here!
