When my fabulous agent Rachelle Gardner called in January to say Melissa Endlich of Love Inspired wanted to buy my novel, November seemed so far away. The months have flown past at a flip book pace.
Lakeside Reunion goes on sale tomorrow at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It will be in stores next week. I’ve signed the contract, done the revisions, seen the cover, and finally held the book in my hands. Joy spread through my soul. Now let’s celebrate!
