Nan Dixon's Birthday Bash and Release Party!

I’m so excited that THROUGH A MAGNOLIA FILTER is releasing on Monday! This is the third book in the Fitzgerald House series. (Don’t worry – you can read them separately.) 

It’s also my birthday today – so I’m celebrating both events by hosting a month long drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card!

Since I was a child, I celebrated my birthday at the lake. The cabin was built by my father and has now been passed down to my sisters and me. And I've started new traditions that include having prosecco on the dock.

 But I don't mind not being at the lake this week, because instead, I’m watching granddaughter #2, Princess Crazy Top.  (You can track my two granddaughters on my Facebook page.) 
My daughter went back to work this week. So I'm following the tradition that my mother started. She always helped me through the first week I went back to work and I am carrying on the tradition.


About The Book

Dolley Fitzgerald is the youngest Fitzgerald sisters. She and her two sisters have turned their crumbling historic district Savannah mansion into a successful B and B and they’ve even purchased and rehabbed the mansion next door.
But building websites and running a B and B have never been Dolley’s dream. Even though she yearns to kick the Spanish moss off her heels, she feels shackled to her family and their business. She ignores her dreams of traveling the world and having a photography career.
Irishman Liam Delaney is a documentary film maker and world renowned photographer. His godfather’s death leads him to research Savannah and he’s fascinated by the history of the Irish in Savannah. He sets up a long term stay in Fitzgerald House while he and his crew are filming the documentary. And he takes on Dolley Fitzgerald as both a local guide and photography apprentice.
Not only are the creatively compatible, but they also have an emotional connection. Liam thinks he’s found what he longs for; family and roots. Dolley thinks she found a career which will take her around the world.
Can they ever find common ground?

MORE ABOUT THE BOOK

Dolley and Liam are two of my favorite characters. (Don’t tell the other couples.) Liam reminds me of my mother, who came to America after only knowing my father for months while he was stationed in England during WWII. They wrote to each other for three years before she immigrated, but she picked up and left everything she knew and moved for someone she hadn’t seen in three years.
Liam is willing to leave Ireland for Dolley because he’s fallen in love with her family and Savannah. (Ahhhh – can you see that there might be a prioritization problem here?)

  2. I love my Virginia mountains. I already was foolish enough to move for love and was miserable with the move(s) and the love. I came back to my mountains and will never move again.

    1. Amy C - I'm so glad you are back in your mountains. I have only driven through them and was amazed by their beauty. I grew up going to the Rocky mountains and the Easterns mountains are so very different. Thanks for commenting!

  3. Dream place(s) I would live (it is a tie) somewhere with palm trees or one of those quaint villages you always see in all of the UK tv shows. Yes, I would move for love...I already did that in my life. Of course it was only from Chicago to MN. :)

  12. Hmmm ... there are plenty of exotic places I'd love to visit, but in all honesty, I can't say that I'd want to live there until I visited and fell in love with the locale.

    What I do know I would love is to live in an ocean front house with the waves right in front of me and the sound always surrounding me. :)
