Today is my birthday but that's not the real reason I'm celebrating. I just found out this morning that my sales at Thomas Nelson have hit an important landmark we've been working toward. I'm sooo thrilled and happy to be with Thomas Nelson. They are my family and I love them so much. They've worked hard to build me and grow me as an author and I would be nowhere without them! My dear Ami McConnell has taught me so much! Erin Healy too. And my agent Karen Solem is hugely responsible too. She has been such a great friend and advocate. I love how she gives me a swift kick in the behind when I need it! LOL Allen Arnold and his team are always thinking outside the box on promotions. Jen Deshler takes good care of me in the marketing department as does Katie Bond in the publicity department. :-) I couldn't even think about writing without my Girls Write Out buds too. We're getting together to brainstorm on Thursday for the new book. I'm so grateful God has brought such friends and partners into my life.
What a birthday present! This book, Without a Trace, is the book that started it all with Thomas Nelson. I'll never forget sitting on the floor at Mt Hermon Christian Writer's Conference and pitching it to Ami.
And now it's time to give away the free copies of The LIghtkeeper's Daughter you signed up to win last week. Here are the winners:
Email me with your addresses and I'll get you all a copy right out!
So what are you thankful for as you look at the past year?
