This book is going to be Rooglewood Press's Spring 2014 release. And I, for one, can hardly wait! This is not only her first release in many years, but also her longest, most involved novel ever.
The cover reveal, as you see on the banner, is scheduled for November 27th. Are you a blogger? Would you be interested in taking part in the reveal, featuring the pretty new cover and back cover copy? Then please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org), and I'll add you to the list!
Yes, there will be a fun giveaway. My mother is going to offer a lucky winner a bundled prize of several of her former titles, including one of her reader-favorite short novels, Time for a Miracle, and its two sequels, Myles from Anywhere and Lonely in Longtree. And that's just to name a few!
Do join in the fun of presenting Until That Distant Day to the reading public this November.
And in the meanwhile, be sure to check out her fun new blog, Books, Cats, and Whimsy.
SQUEE! So awesome! I can't wait to learn more. Sounds like quite an undertaking. The French Revolution was such an intimidating time. :)
YES!!! I've been waiting for this...now I just can't wait to see the cover!
Oh, how exciting for your mother! What is the book called? My computer did not read me the title. I actually read Lonely in Longtree, which I found in Braille on a web site that makes electronic Braille files available. It was such a sweet story, both humorous and poignant. I loved the interchange between the two main characters. Their correspondence was so wonderful. I write better than I speak, so perhaps I should do what the main characters did in that book! God bless you.
@Meredith: It's called UNTIL THAT DISTANT DAY, a novel of the French Revolution. :)
I'm so delighted to hear that LONELY IN LONGTREE has been transcribed into Braille. I'm going to have to make sure UNTIL THAT DISTANT DAY gets transcribed as well!
Yes, I was so thrilled to find that book available. The web site is one where volunteers donate and transcribe books for blind individuals to download. Some of the files are poor quality, (Lonely in Longtree was done very well, however), and the service itself is wonderful. I don't know if you remember, but the feature you did on Regina Doman prompted me to search for her books, and I found them on that site. For a voracious reader like myself, it's a great place to find material when I've run out of library books. www.bookshare.org
For professional work, Mrs. Laurie is the most reasonable and delightful transcriber I've had the privelige to work with. She'll do the work in a very timely manner, and, of course, she reads the books she's transcribing. So, it's really fun discussing the stories with her. The French Revolution was such a tumultuous time. I'm sure your mother's book is very exciting. Do both of you enjoy brainstorming ideas together? I know you write in different genres, but I'm sure it's nice to discuss your ideas together. God bless you.
Ooo, sounds good! I love history and the French Revolution is a very interesting period. Can't wait!
