A Christmas Surprise!!!

It came!

In the bustle of Christmas and revisions for a different book due to be turned in by Friday, I haven't been thinking too much about my dear second book, RENOVATING BECKY MILLER, that is set to release February 1st. I've lined up a Book Launch event, and talked to someone about my blog tour, and sent postcards of the new "baby" in my Christmas cards. But February seemed a long ways off.

Then, today, a mysterious padded envelope arrived on my doorstep from Bethany House. I ripped it open and squealed.

Two glorious copies (hot off the press!) of RENOVATING BECKY MILLER. The red paint on the cover is slick and shiny. The ink smells amazing. Wonderful endorsements from author friends fill the front pages.

Does an author get blase' after her first book.

I can answer that with a resounding, "NO!"

I feel as giddy as the first time.

God certainly excels at wonderful surprises.

Have a VERY blessed Christmas, savoring all of God's gifts, especially the gift of His PRESENCE with us through His Son, Jesus.
