Today is a very special day in my world. It’s the birthday of my youngest son and although he looks very much like a man – his mother still sees him like this. Which is the reason that mother’s can worry always. But today is not about worry it’s about celebration! Happy Birthday to that wonderful young man who can make me laugh at myself and the world no matter what is going on! I am so glad you are on the planet and in my world.
Today also happens to be the kick off for the new novel, the Miracle of Mercy Land arrives in stores. (When I asked my son if he’d like for me to move the book signing to another day so that he could spend the evening with his mother for his birthday he told me it was just quite alright and for me to go ahead and make book signing plans. More proof he’s not a spunky three year old anymore.)
We’ll have the kick-off tonight at Davis Kidd in Nashville at 7pm. If you are in the area please come join us for a short reading, some fun storytelling and plenty of time for conversating.
*Please note that it’s also the happy Birthday of author Susan Gregg Gilmore who has a brand new baby out. I’ll be presenting with Susan at the Southern Festival of the Book on Saturday so please stop by and see us there!
Mercy is a great character full of moxie and a “backbone of worthy” as her Aunt Ida tells her. I hope you have the chance to meet her and get to know her. It’s a story full of mystery, love, friendship, and yes – just a touch of the mystical running along those Alabama shores.
Wishing you all good things.
I hope to see you this evening!
