Support Your Locals!

I have been frequenting Gales IGA grocery store from the time I was little. Whichever one of us girls went grocery shopping with Mom there got a snack and a pop for the ride home. It’s a friendly place, and easy to find what you need.

Gales has been getting a make over recently, and it looks amazing! Their new cafe spot with comfy chairs, couches and tables is a terrific place to sit and relax for a bit. Another new feature is that they carry home decorations and items made by local people. One of those local items is a new book entitled Lift!

I was super excited to be asked if they could carry my first novel. Of course I said yes! How awesome to have something of mine displayed and for sale in a store that I admire and love?

This writing adventure, which started back in high school, is leading to some marvelous things. I now have Lift available at the Book Nook & Java Shop in Montague, and Gales IGA in Hart. It’s so nifty.

Oh, and I got to meet a fan today at the library where I work. So cool. So blessed. I love this writing life!

Here’s a picture of Lift on display at Gales. Have a wonderful evening!

PS! I’m going to be at Gales on Saturday, May 26th, from 4-5 pm, speaking about writing and signing copies of Lift!

Official Copies Have Arrived!

A big box of books arrived this afternoon – a big box of Lift copies! They look amazing! I can’t wait for them to find homes and book shelves.

I admit that I need to reread it; we did extra editing after receiving the ARCs, and now the story is a bit different. I’m currently reading Marie Lu’s Batman: Nightwalker, so I haven’t looked through the official version of Lift yet.

The book launch party is Saturday, April 21, from 4:30-6 pm, at the Book Nook in Montague, MI. Hope to see a lot of people there! Lift will also be available on Amazon as a soft cover and a Kindle book, and libraries and schools can also order it through Ingram.
