I've been MIA due to spring madness, among other things! In the past couple of weeks, I have finished out my teaching semester, gone on our Make-A-Wish Disney cruise (details coming soon!), traveled to see my nephew's graduation, and have been furiously working on my next MS, which is due June 4.
In the meantime, Dying to Remember hit the shelves, which was super exciting...except that none of the shelves near me are carrying it. It was a sad day when I went to Walmart specifically to buy my own book (yes, I consider such nonsense to be a fun outing), to discover that our local Walmart is only carrying two of the six May releases, and mine is not among them! I'm determined to be more proactive next time in contacting my local stores to try to get my books on the shelves. Lesson learned.
And in other publishing news, Rayne's blog post was released this week from MD Anderson Cancer Center. It still makes me tear up when I read it. Not a day goes by when I don't thank God for what he did in Aaliyah's life, and that our family is still whole. On that note, the people who prayed for us nonstop during that wretched time taught me much about prayer and my own faith. I now love to pray for others in a way I never knew before, so if you ever need someone in your prayer corner, feel free to send me a note.
