The Book Lover's Journal

Dear Readers,

Please forgive me for not posting the winner of the Book Lover's Journal sooner. My husband's mother has been very ill and we made a trip to MS to see her in the nursing home. Afterward, I had company from MT and Nashville which was so wonderful to see my brother's grandson who's 2 that I've never met. My brother passed away in 2004 but if he were here he would be delighted with that sweet little boy! It was a great time with family since professor niece will be moving to Scotland to teach at Edinburg University. What an honor and career she's already had teaching at Harvard and Vanderbilt. I'm very proud of her if you couldn't tell.

So without further adieu, the winner of the writer's journal is Amber Perry! Congratulations Amber! I'll do my best to get this in the mail to you this week as soon as I write and get your address.

I want to thank you for taking the time to post me a comment. I appreciate you all so much. :)

Now that my company and Memorial Day is past, I'm getting deep into my second book of Virtues and Vices of the Old West. I'll be getting galleys for book one in the new series mid-June and it should be released mid-January to February. I enjoyed writing The Trouble with Patience and I think you're going to love her story too. I can't wait to get the cover and when I do, I'll share with you.

If any of you are thinking about writing but don't know how to get started, I'll be teaching a Beginning Writer's Workshop in August at the Catch the Wave Conference in Marietta, GA. This is a small conference with a variety of workshops and lots of encouragement and inspiration. If you live in Atlanta area, check  here for details. http://www.christianauthorsguild.org/2014-writers-conference/ . Scroll down to see the conference speakers and teacher's and you'll see me listed.

Hope your June is a fun-filled one. Check back soon for a blog about girlfriends that I experienced.

Hi Maggie, my fellow ACFW sister, I've read all three books in your first series and found them to be wonderful. In fact, I was hoping you would write a book for those women in the boarding house as I fell in love with so many of the characters.

I've been wanting to purchase your next series so I just went and did that today. I'm sure this one will be just as good as the other one.

I also wanted to let you know that I've nominated you for a Liebester Award. You can find it here: http://kristenatunstall.com/ive-been-nominated-for-a-liebster-award/ You can choose to accept it if you like as it's optional.
