Today is the kickoff of the fan-fiction blog, SCENES & BEANS. It is based on the upcoming mystery series, by bestselling author, Brandilyn Collins and is set in the fictional town of Kanner Lake, Idaho. A dozen or so of the central characters will take turns writing the posts.
I’m jazzed because I was selected (along with three other talented writers) to play the part of the curmudgeonly, “WILBUR HUCKS.” Each of us “Wilbur’s will take turns writing the posts that will appear a couple times each month.

“Wilbur’s” first turn at bat will be on Monday, July 10. I’ve no idea if Brandilyn will select my post, or one of the other “Wilbur’s”, but it doesn’t matter because they’re all great. Be sure to visit often and leave comments for “Wilbur” and the other characters. This is going to be fun!

“Bailey” is the owner of the JAVA JOINT coffee house and her blog, SCENES & BEANS, is her way of telling the world about her coffee shop and the town that she loves. Visit the blog today and meet her. She’s a sweetheart and I think you’ll love her too.

A little over a month ago, I was fortunate enough to read an advance copy of VIOLET DAWN, the first book of the new series. I fell in love with all the characters, but when the chance came up to audition for different parts, Wilbur was my first choice.

VIOLET DAWN (Zondervan) is set to hit the bookshelves this August. Look for my review as the release date arrives.

Janice: - Kanner Lake is the happiest place in cyberdom....that is, as long as you don't use the hot tub. Read Violet Dawn to find out why.
