Launch Day- I Heart Felt

I Heart Felt hits the stands today!
This is my 10th book launch (the first mystery came out in two versions, with two different titles, several years apart, so it counts twice) and it's every bit as exciting as the other nine. All books are a little like birthin' babies, but this one was more like birthin' elephants since the gestation period was longer than two years. The contract offer came on our way to the Portland, OR airport (from a lovely little vacation) on Feb. 22, '06.

I am extremely proud of the book, and deeply thankful to my agent Stacey Glick, and my editor Erica Sanders-Foege for everything they did to make this happen.

I will start my local appearances next Monday (see the list at the top of the right hand column for dates and locations). South Dakota yarn stores/book stores/guilds/knitting groups/libraries who want to schedule an appearance can contact me- I'm willing to go anywhere within about a 150 mile radius for a day-trip. If you're further away, and want an appearance, contact me anyway- we can maybe work something out.
