Your books are ready! Eek!

A day early!

What a journey it has been (and still is!) to reach this point! The satisfaction of seeing that subject line in my email made my day!

Now I’ll be anxiously awaiting the delivery of them so I can get them dedicated, signed and shipped.

If you have already contacted me for your pre-order, I will be reaching out to you for payment and delivery – and I want to say a special ~THANK YOU~ – from the bottom of my heart for supporting me in getting this series debut to market.

I want to give a special paragraph to highlight how much the support of my friends, family, colleagues and community means to me. I am so thankful to be blessed with amazing people in my world. So once again – THANK YOU!!

Once the books arrive, they will be offered at the regular full price of $15 – still a bargain with the beautiful artwork that Jennifer created to help bring my stories to life. Have I ever told you how much I love and appreciate this wonderful lady?

Not only did you save and get a personal dedication by pre-ordering…you may find a little surprise with your delivery… you never know!

There is still plenty of time to pre-order!! Do you have brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, nieces, nephews who would love a copy dedicated just to them?

You can pre-order by visiting me at the Jasper Farmer’s Market on Wednesday from 11 am – 3 pm, shoot me an email, facebook messenger, or instagram message with who you want the books dedicated to, your mailing address and email address.

I will reach out to you in the next week to confirm shipping and arrange for payment.

In the meantime, I will be cleaning, creating, coo-ing at my newborn grandson who may join Riley on some of our future adventures when he gets a bit older and having a sip or two of wine to celebrate this wonderful feeling to reach this milestone!

Book 2 – Sneak Peek!

Happy Birthday to my baby today! My youngest, Riley’s momma turned 24 today. Be still my heart – how did this happen?

After my recent trip home just prior to the pandemic being declared, I watched many of the home movies from when both of my babies were….well – babies! Such sweet memories!! One of the many projects I have on my list – get them digitized. Having the aid of a professional with access to important technology to achieve my goal is a bonus!

Seeing them as babies, toddlers and sassy young children – it feels like yesterday! And that’s why being a grandparent brings such incredible joy – I get to relive some of those precious moments with a mind that appreciates just how incredibly precious they really are. Especially during Covid times when I cannot predict when I can safely visit them next.

Until then, I have been spending time writing and coordinating with Jennifer for the illustrations, having our social distance meetings at our “office” pictured here. Not a bad place to work!

Not only have I put in motion the process to publish the physical copies, we are in the final stages of completing the second book – Old Fort Point and Big Horn Sheep. I am excited to be able to share the books this summer at our Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays! Stay tuned for our official launch and book signing dates.

I am all giggles about this and I cannot resist sharing one of the illustrations for a sneak peek!
