Fun Fiction Event Day at LifeWay

I had a nice time book signing at LifeWay today for their National Fiction Event. They have a wonderful staff and delicious cookies and lemonade was served to their customers. Depite the cloudy skies the store was busy and one of my sweet fans drove up from LaGrange, GA for me to autograph her copy of my book. This is Lori and me in the photo. She's become quite the blogger and reviewer of Christian novels. You can check it out here:

I was very flattered that she and her mom, Gwen (Gwendlyn), would drive that far to my book signing. Thank you both. It was nice getting to know you more.

I also met new readers and Marc Amason, the manager, took a photo of a gentleman who also bought bought my books. So I hope he'll send me a copy. It's not everyday that men will purchase romance books, but I have to tell you, my list of male readers has grown. I'm really happy about that.

Wednesday night I'll be siging at The Bookmark, my church bookstore at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta and I'm looking forward to that. My dear friend Dottie runs the bookstore there. My church and choir buddies have really supported my writing dream.

Before I sign off, I have a new post up today at It's a short article on my recent trip out West. I'll be posting more about some of the lights of my research soon.
So stay tuned and have a wonderful Lord's Day tomorrow.

Hey y'all! =)

I'm finally home! Whew...what a long, but very fun day! It was awesome seeing you again, Maggie. Bruce is a real sweetie; you're blessed to have him.

I can't wait to finish reading The Jewel of His Heart, so I can post my review. Thank you so much for mentioning my blog! I look a little weird in the pic though. I'll be posting mine on my blog sometime tomorrow, so come by if you can. =) Be sure to let me know when your next book signing is...for April's story...and I'll try my best to come see you again. =)

Oh, Renee, I wish you could have been there, too! I would so love to meet you in person and just give you the biggest hug. {{virtual hug}}

You gals are the greatest! Enjoy the rest of your night.
