Finally, I can share with you my new book cover for The Trouble with Patience, book #1 in my new series Virtues and Vices of the Old West. I've been at the ICRS (International Christian Retail Show) in Atlanta so this is the first chance I've had to blog. The cover is gorgeous and the heroine's face perfectly depicts my character, Patience. Revell designs the most beautiful covers, I think you'll agree. It's already up for pre-order, so I hope you'll jump on it and get your copy before it hits the shelves in Feb. 2015. The lace edging on the cover is a nice touch.

Here's the link to preorder: http://tinyurl.com/nvoq37x
Don't forget that No Place for a Lady for e-readers is still free on Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com and Christianbook.com . Please pass the word along and tell your friends.

A week ago, I attend my publisher's Baker/Revell 75th Anniversary dinner at Fernbank Museum in Atlanta. It was great to see the marketing team again, and folks who work behind the scenes at Revell. I got to connect with one of my editors, Carol Johnson, (The Carol Award was named after her :), fellow authors that I already knew, and I met a few new ones as well. It was a very nice meal as my husband and I sat with the body of a dinosaur hovering above us with the VP of Lifeway, Tim Vineyard, and Christian book distributors, Ted Terry, his lovely wife, Marietta, Agent Janet Grant, and two ladies representing Guidepost. Twila Bennett, marketing with Revell hosted our table.

On Tuesday I was at the ACFW booth helping out then later walked around to see who was book signing and found the lovely and talented Karen Kingsbury, author of a zillion books! She has a new line of greeting cards that she and her daughter, Kelsey, designed. My church's bookstore, The Bookmark, carry them.

With the 4th of July days away, I'm looking forward to fireworks and  a bit of relaxing plus staying out of our scorching Atlanta heat. How do you spend your 4th? I hope it's wonderful spent with family and friends.

Have a safe and HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!
