I promised I'd post more news today, and though it may be late in the day I'm keeping my word! I know you've been waiting by the computer with bated breath. Ha. Hopefully, you've spent your Saturday like I spent mine: basking in the November sun. Yup, it was 70 degrees in my little corner of creation today. We had burgers for supper and I made wine spritzers in honor of our quasi-summer day. It was bea-stinkin'-utiful. Wow.
Anyway, you've already heard my personal news: the launch of our One Body One Hope capital campaign. Very exciting stuff. But now I'm dying to share my professional news...
I get emails on a weekly basis from readers who have enjoyed After the Leaves Fall and Summer Snow. It's so much fun to hear from people who connected with my Julia DeSmit. She's a honey. But at some point in the conversation or correspondence, I'm always asked the same question: Are you going to write a third book and finish the series? The answer, 18 months after the release of Summer Snow is...
I'm currently working on a third Julia book, due for publication in 2011. I know that sounds like it's far away, but Tyndale and I have lots of fun things planned in the meantime... You're just going to have to be patient until this spring. I'm eager to share more details with you, and I promise I will a bit at a time. The two things I can tell you right now are that Julia's story will finally find resolution and you will play a part in it. I'm soooo excited! :)
In the meantime, if you haven't read Leaves or Snow, now's the time! The third book is going to be full of suspense and surprises... I think you'll want to be a part of it. Maybe you can even help me title it. In light of the first two titles, what should I call the final installment of Julia's story? I'd love to hear your ideas and suggestions!
Have a blessed Sunday.
