I don't have a title for it yet, but for those who've read "You're the Cream," it's Dot's story. I'm also working on another book I'm calling "Moondrop Miracle," which is set in the 1930s and is sort of a riches-to-rags-to-riches story. (less)

Hive mind! Name this town

Readers! I need an appealing name for a fictional logging town in the American Northwest. Currently I’m calling it “Logtown,” which, *yawn*. Post your ideas in the comments.

(This is for “Undercover Logger,” my upcoming novella which will appear in the Lumberjacks and Ladies collection from Barbour Publishing in February 2022. Preorder your copy today!)
