I'm pretty exicted about tomorrow. I'll be at the LifeWay Bookstore at the Mall of Georgia in Buford tomorrow, signing with Julie Lessman! It'll be a treat to finally meet my online friend. Her Daughters of Boston series is flying off the shelves and I've read all three novels.

The signing will be from 12-2 pm, so if you're anywhere near the Mall of Georgia, we'd love to have you drop by. At least the heat in Atlanta has dropped a few degrees since last week's unbearable temperatures. I was afraid it would scare Julie off if the weather didn't improve just a little.

Other good news is that Crossings Book Club is featuring my No Place for a Lady for the 7th month in a row! AND...LifeWay has asked me to participate in their October Fiction Day this fall. I hope my Jewel of His Heart will be on the bookshelves by that time. I am thrilled that Julie Lessman and Tamera Alexander have endorsed my second book! I feel greatly honored by those two very talented writers.

Gotta run now and gather up all of Julie's books for her to autograph! I'll try and post pictures later this week. It's been a busy week so far, with my daughter and three grandchildren here for a short visit.

Happy Trails...

YAY! I'm finally going to meet you and Julie! I've been waiting for over a month for this Book Signing to get here! LOL

I live in LaGrange, GA (a little over an hour south of Atlanta); my sister, Whitney, and I are planning to be there tomorrow. I've already "packed" up No Place for a Lady, and Julie's first 2 books ~ I can't wait to get them autographed! Y'all will be the first/only authors I've ever met! Whoo-hoo! I hope I can get to sleep pretty soon, so I'll be "bright-eyed and bushy-tailed" in the morning! *grin*

See you soon...

Hey Maggie!

It was GREAT to finally meet you! Whitney & I had a wonderful time talking to you. We're "patiently" waiting for The Jewel of His Heart to be released! *grin*

Maybe I'll be able to come up for your next book never know.

Thank you for your autograph!

Lori, it was so nice to meet you to! I was just about to write and thank you for the gift. What a totally and unexpected pleasure! I love it. Hope your drive home was too terrible on 85. God bless and hope to see you again soon.

Guess you can tell that I was tired. LOL. What I meant to say was--I hope your drive wasn't too terrible. I'll be fresh and rested from the last 2 grueling weeks soon. (I hope). :)
