It's here!!! Well, almost. My second book, A MAZE OF GRACE: A MEMOIR OF SECOND CHANCES, has cover art, and its own page on Amazon.com...which makes me think, "Wow, this is really happening!" and do happy dances of glee in the kitchen, even when the shades are up and all the neighbors can see.
I love this cover best of all the ones I've had so far. I grew up near the beach in Maine, so that feels really right. And in the many (many) times in my life when I've felt completely off track and directionless, the beach is where I've gone to recalibrate. I'm not sure exactly what it is (I suspect it has something to do with God, what with the big ocean, the waves, and the endless grains of sand) but I always leave those times of staring out at the horizon with a sense that things really will turn out okay, even if I don't know what "okay" will look like.
So yay for inspiring beach scenes! And a huge thank you to all of you who have encouraged me that this day, and this book, would come. A MAZE OF GRACE will be out in June, just in time to read while you're on the real beach (or on a lawn chair in the backyard, pretending to hear the waves...)
A few words of shameless beach book promotion: I've learned that in the world of publishing, pre-orders are super-important in terms of determining how long my beach scene says on shelves, and whether I'll have chances to write more books. So if you're so inclined, click here to secure a copy now! (And know that if I could, I'd buy you each a puppy to express my thanks!)
