Sips of Wine from the Grapevine: from author and artist Lynda Lambert – My August Newsletter and More #AllAuthor #Contest #NewsLetter

Good morning, and welcome to a Special Sublime Sunday Sips of Wine from the Grapevine.

This morning, whilst scrolling through emails, I came upon one from author and artist, Lynda McKinney Lambert.

After reading, I decided this one needed a boost!

Lynda’s got a lot of great stuff to share, so let’s see what she’s got going on below.


After the main text, I’ve provided a book cover photo with a description.

Read onward to learn why this is especially important.

My August Newsletter and More

By Lynda McKinney Lambert

Good Sunday Morning,

I hope you are enjoying these cooler days now that September has arrived.

I have just published my second newsletter for 2022.  You can get the newsletter easily, as I have posted it on my blog.

Click here:

One additional thing I have to share today is that the cover of my new book – Songs for the Pilgrimage – is included on the AllAuthor site right now.

My book cover is in the Book Cover of the Month Contest.  If you would like to help me by voting for my book cover, that would be wonderful. I am so pleased that it is getting votes and most of all I am so proud of the beautiful cover that was designed by DLD Books, Denver, Colorado.

To VOTE, just go to the link here to my blog post where  there is a link  if you wish to vote.  Thank you, if you can vote for my book.

*Book Cover Photo with Description Below*

The front cover of this book features a gorgeous photo of Venice, Italy, taken at sunset. Six blue and black gondolas are at rest on the water in the foreground, and a blue and white cathedral and several additional buildings are in the background, on the far shore. The top and bottom cover bands are a deep reddish brown, echoing the color of the buildings to the right of the cathedral. The lettering for the title and the author’s name is very pale gray, almost white. On the back cover are the synopsis, a short poem, and a photo of the author. A larger version of that same photo is in the book.

I do not have a mailing list – this is simply an e-mail, sent directly from me to you if you are in my personal address book.

Maybe next year, I might do something more and have an official mailing list – but for this year, it is just from me personally.

Thank you for being on my list of friends! 

I’d love to hear from you and let me know what you think about my newsletter, book cover, or anything else you want to share with me.

Best regards, Lynda
