Celebration & a sneak peak!

It's here!!!!!!!

Okay, not here, exactly...it's at my friends' house :)

Paul & Pascha just sent me an email entitled, "Wahoo! Lookie what came this AM!" with this picture of my new book, fresh out of the box from Amazon... (I haven't even seen a copy yet, so I'm contemplating a hike across the city to gaze in their window in astonishment).

Then I discovered my Q&A featured on the awesome book blog, The Divining Wand. This is so exciting for me, as TDW has introduced me to more great books & authors than the NYTimes Book Review and the front table at B&N combined. I'm honored to be "revealed" there.

In honor of all this fun, I'm doing two things...

First, re-posting links to Giselle's happy dance in Enchanted and Kool & The Gang singing Celebration from my other blog, as that seems like a solid way to set the party mood.

And second, for those of you who (like me) don't yet have a copy of A MAZE OF GRACE in hand, HERE is the first sneak peak of the opening chapters for you to check out!



If you feel inspired to read further, you can have it sent your way immediately! With just a few clicks! From Amazon, IndieBound, Barnes&Noble...or ask for it at your favorite bookstore.

Thanks for celebrating with me :)

Woohoo! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! Congratulations on seeing all your hard work come to be bound and published. :) You continue to be a blessing!

Hooray!! So excited about your new book. AND seeing Giselle's happy dance absolutely made my day!

Holy Crap Trish! Is that 12 FREE chapters I see on the online book thingy?? I'm so tempted to binge on your words, but I'm forcing myself to stop after the intro until I can get my own copy!

The timing of the release of part deux of your story is going along quite well with mine. (Thank you for consulting my schedule...) When I read your first book, I was nursing a broken heart. Now, I'm standing in freedom and moving on, slowly but surely.

mkate: Hooray for moving on! And yes, the preview includes pages from 12 different chapters. It's pretty cool to see (especially as the UPS man STILL hasn't dropped off my copy!)

Hope you enjoy :)

Congratulations, Trish! I was so happy to see my copy waiting for me when I got home!

Congratulations, Trish! It looks amazing!

My copy was also waiting for me when I got home. YAY! Congratulations, and thanks for your (and Steve's) willingness to be vulnerable and honest and share with the rest of us. And, I'm already on Chapter 6.

I'm actually going to pay full price for this book - and I don't do that everyday....

I got my book in the mail yesterday, I'm only on page 12 and I'm completely hooked - you got me right away by mentioning Anne Morrow Lindbergh AND Madeleine L'Engle!

O, wow! I didn't know you wrote another book. I loved your other book. I will definitely be ordering this one.

Fantastic! And I was just wondering what to read next. Can't wait!
