A sweet taste of France

If it’s Friday (or even Saturday), it must be France …

The Promise of Provence now has a book trailer! After sifting through my photos and collaborating with the creative ( … and patient … ) Kristen Kress at Brain Fry Productions, we are on YouTube. Chalk up another learning experience … it just never ends …

When you have a spare 1:34 minutes, take a look!

Are you joining me in France in June 2014? I’m already counting the days until we begin the first “Promenade En Provence” organized by the Womens Travel Network in Toronto. The first tour sold out immediately and 14 women from the U.S. and Canada will  meet in Nice on June 12 to begin our 10-day adventure.

My speaking partner, author Susan Sommers, will be co-leading the first tour with me and Debbie Ross, the Womens Travel Network founder, will join me for the second tour. Trust me, you are going to be in very good hands!

At the moment there are no more than four spots remaining on the second tour, from June 25 to July 5. They won’t last long which is why I am mentioning the trip here, in case any of you or your friends or family might be interested.

I’ve received enthusiastic emails from several women who have signed up and their excitement is already mounting. Mine too! There’s no question it will be a trip to remember, so join us if you feel tempted.

One of our stops … and the lavender will be in bloom!

Patricia Sands lives in Toronto, Canada when she isn't somewhere else, particularly the south of France. With a happily blended family of seven adult children and, at last count, six grandchildren, life is full and time is short. Beginning with her first Kodak Brownie camera at the age of six, she has told stories all of her life through photography. Much to her surprise a few years ago, she began to write and has now published three novels, including two that are part of a six-book series set in the south of France. Love France? Love her work! Check out her website www.patriciasandsauthor.com She is particularly drawn to the rewarding friendships of women and the challenges many embrace once their families are grown. "It's never too late to begin something new," she enthuses. "As the saying goes, just do it!"

  1. Oh man! Wish I could go! LOVE your book trailer. That is the coolest thing ever and the first one I have seen. I have lagged in reading lately, but I hope that changes soon. 🙂

    1. Hey, what a good idea! Do you know your summer travel plans this far in advance? Keep me posted and we will do our best to make it happen. Have a wonderful Christmas in your sweet cottage!

  2.  FYI This ” Promenade  en Provence”,  is the trip I am taking at the end of June (the second trip) You were asking about it. I am adding the 3 days in Paris to the end, that adds about $740 to the cost. As of now I am sharing with a friend, Dianne, from my book group, but she has health issues and may not come. She will probably decide today. If  she doesn’t come the organizers will find me someone else to share with. The trip is pricey, but not out of line for what we get and I am realizing that if I don’t travel now I never will.

    1. How exciting to hear you are coming on the trip and my fingers are crossed that your friend, Dianne, will be able to resolve her health issues. It’s always disappointing when something happens to mess up plans but that’s life! Just keep believing things will all work out. My best to you and to Diane!

  3. Love your book trailer! I would so love to go to France with you. It’s not in the cards for 2014. Maybe another year. You’re going to have a blast and will come home with so many new friends!

It's always good to hear to from you!
