I usually don't have so much to announce, and it's not that I haven't posted for awhile (which is true as well), but that everything seems to happen in the same day! All good, though.
First, I'll be signing at 2 stores this weekend:
December 18, 2009 - Orem Seagull Book 1:00 - 2:00 p.m., Friday. I’ll be signing “Alma” and “All is Bright” (Christmas Story Compilation) during Friday Lunch Hour: 111 South State Street, Orem, Utah
December 19, 2009 - Spanish Fork Seagull Book 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., Saturday. I’ll be signing “Alma” and “All is Bright” (Christmas Story Compilation) with Annette Lyon and Julie Wright! 1052 South Main, Spanish Fork, Utah
Second, my Alma the Younger book was accepted for publication! Release date will be Summer 2010 (instead of Fall 2010). So you won't have to be in suspense for too much longer. I'm really excited about this, but then I realize that I need to decide which book to write next since I usually have a bigger gap between books. I'm thinking of Ammon, but not set in stone. Any suggestions?
Third, my non-fiction book, Women of the Book of Mormon is slated for an April release! So this means that next week I'll be in final edits (yes, during Christmas). My editor was worried that it would make things too busy, but really, I see it as a Christmas present to myself. This book, although not long in length, took so much research, and has been a long time coming. So I'm really grateful that it will be out in April. Just in time for Mother's Day! And I can finally share some of the fascinating insights I've learned.
