My next novel, A Family Arrangement, arrived on my doorstep much sooner than I expected. This is the first book in the Little Falls Legacy Series, a series I've wanted to write since I was a college intern working at our local historical society sixteen years ago.
One of the best things about publishing a story is writing the dedication. It's been my tradition to give the first copy to the person I dedicated the story to. It's fun, because they don't know who they are until I hand them the book. I have another story releasing in December in the Seven Brides for Seven Texans novella collection and the people I dedicated it to have no idea!! I can't wait to share it with them. :)
My first story was dedicated to my parents, the second to my husband, the third to my children, and the fourth to my sister, Andrea. Out of all the people in the world, she probably understands me the best. She is two years (and one day) younger than me, so we grew up very close. We spent hours, and hours, and HOURS playing make-believe when we were little girls, and a lot of that make-believe translates into my writing. Andrea was always a good sport and went along with pretty much any escapade I had in mind.
She is an interior designer and she owns a business with our sister-in-law Sarah. They repurpose furniture and make interior décor. This past weekend they had a huge show and they asked my other sister-in-law, Angie, and me to come to the show to hand out coupons to get people to visit their booth. We were called junk fairies. :) It was a lot of fun, and the perfect opportunity for me to surprise my sister with the book dedication.
I thought it was fitting that this picture represents both of us doing what we love.
So that's a little peek into my world this week! I'd love to know what you've been doing. Any surprises?
