Toni Sample’s message to share with the group


My first novel is available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Nobles as well as Tate Publishing, the book store here in Greenwood or by calling me – I have books at my home so – no postage, ‘best price’ and fast ‘pick up’ delivery.

It’s title is “The Glass Divider” and is focused on the Gulf shores of Louisiana.

Novel two, which will be released shortly is “Transparent Web of Dreams” with all the action taking place on Jekyll Island.

My third novel is  “Distortion” – featuring Denver and Dallas.
