My First Baby

I am so tickled that I've had a second novel published (by Bezalel Books), a work of Catholic YA fiction titled Erin's Ring

But don't worry, Finding Grace.  I haven't forgotten about you.  You will always be my first "baby."

Here's the Claddagh ring that my husband gave me in 1979--
not unlike the one that Molly finds in the first chapter of Erin's Ring!

I've still got three more signed copies of Erin's Ring that I'm giving away over at Goodreads.  You have until midnight on December 15 to enter.  Head on over there now and throw your hat into the ring!

Erin's Ring is Out! And I'm Having a Christmas Giveaway!

I ho-ho-hope you win!

It's a Big Day Around Here!

Today is an exciting day--because I'm supposed to receive my shipment of books from Bezalel.  If everything goes as scheduled, I will be holding an actual paperback copy of my second novel, Erin's Ring, in my hands by end of day.  I can hardly wait to see how it looks "in the flesh," so to speak.  Right now, all I have is a copy of the final galley, which I printed out to see how it looked.
I can't wait to see the actual book!

I already blogged about this over at String of Pearls today, if you want to read that post.  It will explain a few things: which well-known Catholic YA author has already endorsed it, how you can get a signed copy from me, and why it's not available in Kindle format as of yet, to name three.  But head on over and read the rest!
