"Suspenseful, heart-warming and...unforgettable."
NY Times Bestselling Author Lorraine Heath
"Garrett's debut is a tender story about two people who don't belong anywhere and find out that belonging to each other is all they need. The characters' growth and strong secondary characters who move the story along add to this well-written entertaining western." 4 Stars ~ Romantic Times Book Reviews
Touch of Texas has gone back to print!!! Thank you for helping make Touch of Texas a success. Going back to print this quickly, for a first time author, is fabulous. I couldn't have done it without every one of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I have a title and publication date for my next book. Touched by Love will be released in November 2008. According to the back cover description, it is "the story of a love that breaks all the rules." Set in 1847 south Texas, it tells the story of Jaret Walker, a gun for hire with a heart of ice, and Isabel Bennett, the Spanish beauty determined to thaw him out. I haven't seen the cover yet, but I can't wait. Visit the Books page on my website to read the back cover blurb.
CONGRATULATIONS to Susie Russell, the winner of my "Where Did You Spot Touch of Texas" contest. To see the photos of some of the entrants, go to Photos on my website, www.tracygarrett.com.
I have had such fun at all my book signings. The most recent, my "hometown" signing in Carbondale, Illinois, was a blast! I saw so many people I've known most of my life: family, teachers, mentors... Lots of laughter and storytelling that afternoon, I must say.
I'm lining up workshop dates, and my next book signing will be at Stonecrest Book & Toy in Osage Beach, MO, on December 1. Sherry, the manager, hosts a huge book signing and discount event for all the teachers in the area. I can't wait to meet everyone. Check out "On the Trail" on my website for all my upcoming appearances.

In between all the fun activities associated with promoting Touch of Texas, I'm working on my next book, Touched by a Woman (this is my working title -- it will probably change). It is the sequel to Touch of Texas and tells Wolf & Calvin's story. Wait until you meet Lizzie. She is the total opposite of everything Wolf expects--and absolutely perfect for him!
Be sure to sign up for my November contest at Fresh Fiction. And I'm working on an extra special gift basket for the Christmas contest. Stay tuned!
Until next month!
