You are cordially invited to join me this Thursday, July 1st, at The Balanced Writer (www.thebalancedwriter.blogspot.com). Find out more about BY HEART AND COMPASS on its release day, enjoy excerpts from this sea-romance adventure, and be one of the first to see the new book trailer! Visitors who leave a comment between midnight Wednesday and midnight Friday will be entered in a drawing to win a free PDF copy. Stop by and share your thoughts about the oil spill in the Gulf and what it means to you and your family. Ask me questions about my writing, research and anything else you’ve wondered about. Tell all your friends and see you soon! -- daniellethorne
