Here’s what I love about  book shows.

Amy is as talented as she is gorgeous. I inhaled this book, a magical story in the tradition of Alice Hoffman. It’s getting starred reviews all over the place. Amy’s a songwriter (“Everything” by Michael Buble, anyone?) and a poet, and she brings her artistry to this novel. When you finish reading it, you’ll want to go on a quest to find the town of Avening. A fairy tale filled with a sense of wonder. Not to be missed. In stores October 6th–put it on your must-read list.

I’m a tough sell on memoirs, but this one is just so remarkable. Kevin‘s voice and point of view as a writer are as incredible as his personal story.

It’s a guy’s book by a guy’s guy, but you’re going to love it anyway.

Another one to put on your must-read list. In stores October 13.

Ready, set, read, people!

  • Agree with how great you look in the dress and shoes. Can’t wait to get my hands on Lakeshore Christmas.

    Today I mailed 3 books to the library in Florida–Paula Deen’s It Ain’t All About the Cooking, Chronicles of Narnia and a sweet little book titled Blue Ridge Brides. Hope they get lots of books this way. We have a great library in our town.

  • I agree with Carol, the dress and shoes – fabulous! And all those books are a drug to me. Seeing all those books stacked and ready to be loved by readers is a huge tease! That is the hard part of living abroad. You can’t go to your favorite author signings. But thanks for sharing the pictures. And I think your book cover turned out really nice. It does inspire the holiday feeling for me. I’ll have to give the ‘books for christmas presents’ idea to hubby and I’ll use the picture of your book above to inspire him…hehe! 😉

  • I know it is all about the books, BUT, love the dress and the shoes! You look fabulous. Will check out the Amy Foster book – love the song, “Home” and Kevin’s book. His book would make a great Christmas book for the guys. Of course, your book is a given for Christmas presents. Thinking ahead so I don’t have to go to the malls. Books are the Christmas present to give, well, things in small boxes too, but, I have enough, so books it is.
