Release Day for A Mother in the Making!

Today is a day I've waited over a year to celebrate! It's the day my Love Inspired Historical, A Mother in the Making, releases. It's also the day of my release party at a historic site in my hometown.

As I think through my publishing journey, Thursdays have been a very important day. It was on a Thursday that I went to my first ACFW Conference. It was on a Thursday that I submitted my first manuscript to an editor. It was on a Thursday that I spoke on the phone with my agent and she offered representation. It was on a Thursday that I received the call from my agent that my story had been contracted by Love Inspired Historical. And it's on a Thursday that the book releases and I get to celebrate with my friends and family.

It's also the day I spend with you here at Coffee Cups & Camisoles.

To celebrate release day, I'd love to give away a copy of A Mother in the Making to a commenter. Please fill out the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win. US citizens only, please.

Here's a little about the book:

Matchmaking with a Mission  
Practical, steady, levelheaded: all qualities single father Dr. John Orton expects in both a governess and a wife. But his children's temporary governess Miss Marjorie Maren seems set on finding him an impractical woman to love…despite his plans of marrying solely for convenience. Nothing could be more exasperating to the handsome widower—except his increasing interest in Marjorie.

Vivacious and fun-loving: that's the kind of bride the reserved doctor needs. Before Marjorie leaves to pursue her acting dreams, she intends to match him with a suitable wife candidate. Yet growing affection for her four charges and their dashing father has awakened a new hope—that she might be his perfect bride. But can she convince her employer to take a chance on love and claim real happiness before it slips away?

Thank you for taking a little time out of your day to celebrate with me! Have you read a Love Inspired Historical novel before?
