RENT ONE OF MKA’s COTTAGES
The Breeze Inn
Did you know that MKA’s own beach cottages—that she has lovingly restored with her own hands and decorated with her own junking treasures—are available for rent?! You and yours can chillax in beautiful beach cottage comfort in the very spot where MKA pens her bestselling novels. Smaller group? Choose The Breeze Inn which MKA took from ramshackle to the pages of BH&G in a year’s time back in 2009. For larger groups, check out MKA’s new treasure, Ebbtide, which was featured in a huge spread in HGTV Magazine. Contact Tybee Island Vacation Rentals and book yourself in for the full MKA experience. Get yourself on “Tybee time” and discover the magic of slowing down.
The thing I hate most about getting ready for summer? Trying on swimsuits! The thing I like best? Bringing you my brand new beach read!
THE HIGH TIDE CLUB will be in stores everywhere on Tuesday, May 8, and my ginormous book tour will bring me to cities from Atlanta to Birmingham, Chicago to Pittsburgh and Cleveland, to Philly and the Jersey Shore and many stops in between.
There’s still time to claim your FREE GIFT! If you pre-order THE HIGH TIDE CLUB ahead of the May 8th on-sale date, you’re eligible to receive a custom MKA spill-proof wine tumbler. Details and entry form HERE.
I cant wait to tell you about this book, with a setting on a fictional barrier island off the coast of Georgia. Once single mom Brooke arrives on Talisa, a tale of old friendships, dark secrets, betrayal and a long-unsolved disappearance begins to unfold. Its a story shrouded in mystery, Spanish moss, skinny dipping, love lost and possibly … love found.
To research the book I spent time on Sapelo Island, whose wide, abandoned beaches, spooky lighthouse and crumbling mansion were the inspiration for my own, fictional island.
As always, well kick off the tour with a fabulous launch party in Atlanta on May 6, followed with yet another on May 7, in Savannah. Both parties feature swag bags, food, cocktails and awesome raffle prizes to benefit The Georgia Conservancy.
Check the sidebar for all the stops on the MKA tour and see full details on the EVENTS tab on my website.
And in the meantime, did you know that SAVE THE DATE is just out in mass market paperback? Not only is this the perfect size for your beach bag, but that book features Brooke Trapnell, a character who makes her triumphant return in THE HIGH TIDE CLUB!
Happy spring! I hope to see you while Im out on the road this May & June!
