Book Tour: The Professor and the Bird by Roberta Franklin

Love between two different worlds, two different generations
The Professor and the Bird
Roberta Franklin
Genre: Romance
Publisher: Olympia Publishers
Publication Date: September 29, 2016
Professor Nikos Angelopoulos is working with his Greek-Turkish team at a dig in Turkey when one day a young motorcyclist gets stranded: Sally from Ireland, fresh and charming and a bit flirty. Very soon the Professor finds out that, despite her temperament, she’s still very innocent and gullible, and he seems to develop fatherly feelings towards her, protecting her from the clear intentions of the young men at the camp.
Then she just happens to dig up a fragment of clay with an old Assyrian inscription in Hittite on it, and Nikos finds out that this inscription is the oldest one found so far in an Indo-European language. While celebrating their great find, Sally and Nikos discover their feelings for each other despite their age difference – but at the same time, an American millionaire turns up who wants to buy the clay fragment for his collection; and, although Nikos tells him it is a national treasure and not for sale, he won’t take no for an answer. He tries to convince Nikos to sell it to him, and when that plan fails he calls in his gunmen…
Amid their ever-growing passion for each other, Nikos and Sally now have got to face a dangerous and violent gang of artefact thieves together with their brave international team of archaeologists and workers. Who will win the showdown at Kanesh camp – and will this unusual relationship between a scientist of sixty and a young adventuress of not yet thirty stand the test of time?
“True lovers of romance will fall to their knees over this sweet romance that proves love is just a number and when you meet your soul mate you do what ever you have to to be a part of their life.”
– Valerie Frentz, Amazon Reviewer
“Roberta Franklin put her heart and soul into this story and it showcases every single bit of what makes us human, the story that touches your soul and makes you believe in humanity and finding that one true love.”
– Igor Eliseev, Goodreads Reviewer

Apologies for the spam of posting that appeared on Twitter but I’m unsure if it went out by email as well.

If it did, I apologize about that. Blog posts were missing and links were dead to I’ve been working for the past 3 hours on getting all of that up and I did my best to avoid getting it sent out to everyone, but I’m unsure if it was sent by email.

It won’t be happening again as all links should be good now and all missing posts should be up and back as well.

So we’re officially good! Whoot!



We are live! FINALLY! After all of that work and messing around…MyLibraryCardWoreOut is now self-hosted! How exciting is this?!

It took many hours of work, a lot of nail-biting and a LOT of customer support…and without the help from the WordPress Team as well as the HostGator customer support, I wouldn’t have been able to do it, so an internet thank you to them!

So now I can get back to blogging again and all of that wonderful stuff which I love to do.

Just a note: some links are not active as things have moved around so I am currently working on fixing all of that. But if you find something that happens to be wrong, leave a comment on that post or shoot me an email, or tweet me or send me snail-mail letting me know.

Thanks so much and I can’t wait to start blogging again!
