Exciting news! I have two new books to tell you about. The first is a non-fiction book for young women titled, Spoken For: Embracing Who You Are and Whose You Are.
I co-authored this book with Alyssa Joy Bethke, let me tell you that Alyssa is a delightful young woman. We met when my husband and I moved to Hawaii and that first meeting was definitely a God thing. Over the past three years Alyssa and I have shared lots of memorable moments and even dared to dream about co-authoring a book someday. Soon after Alyssa got married last autumn we put our heads together and started working on Spoken For. We are so happy with how the book turned out and can’t wait for its release in April of 2014.
We have a small dilemma, though, and this is where your vote will help us. Our publisher, has presented us with two options for the final cover and we can’t decide which one we like best. Have a look and let us know which cover you prefer by Tuesday, October 8th.
I’ll post the winning choice on the blog by Thursday, October 10th so be sure to check in then to see which one you liked the most.
Earlier in the year I blogged about Alyssa and how she was one of the women in a summer study I led on the book Praying For Your Future Husband. Alyssa wrote about their love story in Spoken For and I think you’ll be amazed at how God worked in Jeff and Alyssa’s lives to bring them together. It’s just one of the things that makes Spoken For a timely, tender and soul-nourishing book.
Now for those of you still reading, you’re wondering when I’m going to reveal details on the second book mentioned in the opening line. Here’s the happy news. A new novel about Christy and Todd during their married years is in the works! Yes! It’s true! At last!
Did I just hear a squeal? Oh, wait. That was me. I get giddy every time I talk about this new series! I promise I’ll tell all as soon as I’m able to share details.
Let me just say that I have loved being back in the “lives” of Christy and Todd as I’ve been writing and finding out all the latest about them and their Forever Friends. You won’t believe what Aunt Marti decides to do! Watch the blog for more details including the release date of the first novel in this new series.
And for those of you who have been praying about a possible production of the Christy Miller series, keep praying. We have had some really encouraging meetings but we know that it will have to be the Lord who opens all the right doors at the right times. Pray!
