Opal at Novel Bookstore

My book, Opal, is now available in the local author section of Novel Bookstore, the reincarnation of Booksellers at Laurelwood. Pretty excited about it. The section is located immediately to the left when you enter the front door, and the store is at 387 Perkins Extd, just north of Poplar. Check out their great new restaurant, Libro, too, after you’ve completed your book shopping.

Help Name the Opal Story

I’m working on the Opal sequel, and I want your help. Here’s a synopsis (though I’m not through) of what happens in the story. Although middle-aged Opal Pratt has lived on that property all her life and her parents were there for some years before that, Opal has now learned that the front part of the property does not belong to her. And she’s not happy. She watches the land being cleared, a house larger and nicer than hers going up, and driveways being paved.
What shall we name the story? The working title is Land Lost, but that’s no good for a real title. Neighbors came to mind, but that’s too friendly. Changes might be a decent title. What do you think we should call it? Leave me a comment with your ideas.
