My week...

January slipped into February this week, and kept us busy as it did so.

On Monday, Wedding Night with the Ranger was released! Also, our library hosted Author Jill Elizabeth Nelson. I took my mother to hear Jill speak and we had a wonderful evening together.

Tuesday evening I took Isabelle to gymnastics. When we arrived back at her house the furniture store had delivered and set up her ‘big girl bed’. I was officially invited to sleep in the bottom bunk anytime I want. Princess sheets and all.

Wednesday morning started with a call from our middle son. He’d been in a six car pile up on his way to work. THANKFULLY no one was hurt! As you can tell from the picture, his car was totaled (it’s the red car). There was certainly a guardian angel riding beside him that morning.

While I was on my way to pick him up, I received an email on my blackberry from a literacy agent in Japan with an offer for the Japanese rights to Mail Order Husband.

Thursday, after several emails, I confirmed the offer from Japan, and now am awaiting the final contract and tax papers. The book will be translated and released in Japanese trade paperback later this year.

Friday, I took my mother to the doctor and eye doctor, then to order new glasses and complete several other errands she needed to do.

Of course I worked the day job all week, too.

So here it is Saturday morning, and besides a trip to the grocery store later today for super bowl fixings, I’ll be working on the Fifth Quinter Bride book. Bug’s story is moving right along. Poor guy, Ma refuses to allow him to get married—with her shotgun of course.

I hope your February arrived wonderfully, and that it will continue to bring good news and wonderful adventures.

Can I just say WOW! What a week and what uppers and not so uppers.

I'm glad your son is okay, that is some pile up!

Congratulations on being invited to sleep in the bottom bunk that is a huge kudo for a grandmother.;)

And Wow on the Japanese rights. So they just called out of the blue???

Hi I also am glad your son is alright.
I looked for an email address for you but could not find it. I finished your book A Wife for Big John and I absolutely loved it. The characters were wonderful and I hated for the book to end. Also, the food that Dani cooked made my mouth water. You could probably publish her recipes they sounded so good.Anyway just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your book. I'm about to start on Mail Order Husband.

Thanks, Paty!

Arl215, thank you so much for the wonderful comment. I'm glad you enjoyed A Wife for Big John. That story will always hold a special place in my heart.
