Quilt With Us

While not quilt related, at least not yet but will be in the future, I just received a wonderful phone call that I just had to share. I am now a published author! The book should be here within 7-10 days for me to review and make sure everything is right and then it will be released and sold through Borders, Amazon, available as an E-Book and, for now, available in local book stores. It's called Musings and Short Stories and the picture on the cover is one that I took this past winter.

This was just a fun book to do and to get my feet wet, as it were. Currently have two other books in the works that are both non-fiction and will be a while before they are ready for publication. For now, I am doing a happy dance as another of my dreams has been accomplished. My DH and son's encouragement and support and that of friends really made this all possible.

I'll post a picture of the cover once I've received it and if any are interested in copies, let me know via email. Wheee!!!! Gotta run!

Congratulations! I'll do the happy book dance with you. I still laugh just thinking about the first time I read "Congratulations! We would like to buy your novel." I made my husband read the letter to make sure I hadn't misread it.  Your next big happy dance will be when someone you don't know says "I loved your book." Keep dancing!

I checked with the publisher and the book will be available for the Kindle and the Nook. I have to call there tomorrow to find out more information on where and how it is downloadable and an idea of the cost. I know the hard back is $24.99 and the paperback is $15.99 or somewhere there abouts. I guess it depends on the store. When I find out more about the Kindle and Nook downloads, where you can get them and the cost, I'll let you know.

I would be glad to autograph anyone's book. If you are interested in ordering direct from me, I'll let you know when I have them on hand. I know I'll be offering them for sale at the Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival which is held in Alpena, Michigan the first week of October.

Thanks again for all the wonderful comments and good wishes.

I think it can be read on the Kindle and possibly the Nook. Not sure, but that is a good question and I will find out the answer to it and get back to you. Thanks for the congrats. I do have ISBN numbers for the hardback edition and the paperback or softback edition. The hardback is ISBN#978-1-4628-6267-2 and the paperback is ISBN #978-1-4628-6266-5.

What fabulous news!  Congratulations!!  After getting news like that, I would be flying so high that they would have to send a hot air balloon up to fetch me back down..
