Rebecca has just turned thirty. She’s happy living a perfectly comfortable and predictable life. She’s even ready to marry her long-time boyfriend whenever he finally gets around to asking her. But all that changes when her best friend whisks her away to Italy for a much-needed vacation.
In the midst of site seeing and finally letting loose, Rebecca manages to catch the eye of a young English tourist; but doesn’t let it go to her head. By the time she’s back in the states and back in the arms of her long-time beau, Rebecca has already forgotten about Peter, Paten, Paul…whatever his name was, that is until he shows up at her brother’s cabin in the woods.
A life of normalcy, routine, and stability gets turned upside down as Rebecca decides whether or not she’s truly ready to get married. And if so, who is the one she’s really meant to be with?

Glorie Townson is more than just a pen name for the author, Toi Thomas; she’s an entirely different personality. Glorie is the softer side of Toi, who puts down her comic books and picks up a volume of Robert Frost poems. Like Toi, Glorie is happily married to her wonderfully supportive husband, and together they share a home with their pet turtle, Betty. This is Glorie’s first publication, but she’s already feeling the inspiration to pen another tale, to which she’ll gladly share with the world. 

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed this stop on the 
It’s Like the Full Moon Tour and will consider
supporting the Thunderclap to announce the 
official release of this book.

The giveaways for this tour will include:
a $5 gift card, or signed and personalized 
digital sneak peek, and or something for everyone.

Meet Glorie Townson: a pen name or alter ego? #author #reader

Hello there dear friends, fans, geeks, and more. Today I’m making a pretty big announcement, at least it’s big in the realm of The ToiBox of Words. As many of you have figured out, most of my writing leans towards the speculative. I write quite a bit in the genres of paranormal, fantasy, and sci-fi while sprinkling in bit of romance and even faith. In keeping true to my passions and interests I’ve decided to implement the use of a pen name.

Now, obviously this pen name is not meant to be a secret, otherwise, why announce it to the world. The purpose of this pen or alter ego is three-fold. 1. It will allow me to easily distinguish my works and categorize them for fans of particular genres, freeing me to explore and try new things. 2. The use of a pen may help with getting my foot into doors I’ve never entered before because of the genres I’ve written in the past. 3. I’ve always liked the name Glorie and don’t currently have a story in mind for it, so why not get some good use out it.

So in case you missed it, Glorie Townson will be the new pen name for any works I publish in the future that do not fall in the categories of paranormal, fantasy, or sci-fi. In time I’ll create images and a complete separate online presence for Glorie, but for now, she’s simply getting a tab of her own.

The first book I intend to publish under the Glorie Townson pen will be the contemporary romance I’ve been talking about for ages and haven’t released yet, It’s Like the Full Moon. Let me stress the word “yet”, cause believe me when say, it’s coming.

This is an unofficial Author Insights post.
