"It's off to the press"

Hello everyone!

It's off to the press...Wonderful words to my ear. My publisher sent me an email letting me know The Truth Revealed has been sent to the press. I'm so excited. Book 3 of The Samantha Cain Mysteries will be available in November. YES. And I'll have some copies to bring with me to The Louisiana Book Festival.  Here is a peak at the cover:

I'll also add the front and back cover so you can read the blurb--maybe. Hope you all have been waiting for the next one and will rush to get your copy. I was so glad to learn my books can be found through all the EBRP Libraries as well as the Livingston Libraries. I'm not sure how long it takes the libraries to get their new copies, but if you're one who reads books but don't like them piling up around your house, this is a way to get least for people who live around the area. Maybe more libraries soon as you know in 2014 my books will be available in chainstores across the US. I'll keep you posted on that as well.

I'm not sure you'll be able to read it, but maybe. I'm hoping once it is posted you can zoom in on the writing. If not...see the real thing. The first chance to see it will be before it's in stores and that will be at The Louisiana Book Festival...Saturday 11/2/13...downtown Baton Rouge between the Capitol and The Louisiana State Library. The festival is free. There will be food, fun, music, activities of fun for kids, and a lot of Louisiana come on down. I hope to see you there.

On a more personal note, yesterday I got to meet my daughter's mother-in-law, Janet, from England. What a sweet, kind, and wonderful lady she is. We've been facebook friends (sisters) for some time, so it was like we knew each other when she walked through the door. It was wonderful.  And her little grandbaby (& mine), Eli, was tickled pink to get to know her in person. He's been enjoying her love face-to-face for a few days now. I know my son-in-law, Pete, was proud to have his Mum meet his son...and wife, and step-sons. Not trying to put Molly, Scotty, & Koby last -- but when a new baby is around EVERYONE falls behind those cutiepies...even Pete, I'm sure.

Also something else happened yesterday. My grandson, Koby, had a surprise to show me. He got a new electronic tablet - probably from his NanJan and started writing a book. He's written 3 chapters and wanted to read them to me. He did and I'm so proud!!! It (his book) sounded like a professionally written book as he read it to me. Maybe one day...I know he can if his heart leads him that way. He sounded like a natural!!

Speaking of grandsons -- here's a brand new shot of the little one, Eli. He's 3 months old. Well 3 shots for 3 months. I hope that's okay with you. He is sooooo adorable.

I have no interview for you today with someone's new book. Sorry. Maybe I'll get the interview finished I was planning on and do an extra blog in another week or so.

I hope you enjoyed today's blog. I truly would love to hear from you. Take care and God bless you all.
