Great reviews for Treasure Me continue to arrive, along with mail from readers. To everyone who has read the first book in the Liberty series--thank you. Your sweet notes and posted reviews on Amazon, Goodreads and other sites mean the world to me.
The next book in the Liberty, Ohio series, Second Chance Grill, will arrive in late February. The "bad blood" between Liberty's feisty matriarch, Theodora and fluttery Ethel Lynn, will be explained in more detail. Let the fur and feathers fly.
For now, I'm busy completing the edits for a darker, stand-alone novel, The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge. Well, completing the edits and writing the Book-Group Discussion Questions. And tweaking the final cover art / cover copy with the marvelous Jan Marshall, designer of both book covers. And checking my edits because I'm a perfectionist and secretly worry that no book is ever truly finished.
Of course, this means I read most fiction with red pen at the ready.
The Tree of Everlasting Knowledge will reach the shelves in late January. Please let me know what you think of the cover design. Jan worked tirelessly for months creating a slew of alternatives.
On a private note, five of our six kids flew in for the holidays then flew back out to their respective universities. Note to self: clean the house. Well, clean the house after you finish the Tree edits.
Here's wishing all of you a joyous New Year Year filled with light, laughter and love.
