THINK COOL!

Quote of the week:  Character is like a tree ... and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. Abraham Lincoln.

Here in Texas we've had a sweltering summer. Our temperatures have broken all time records. And we've forgotten what rain looks like. So I'm trying to think cool. What better way to remember temperatures below 100 and rain and snow than to think Christmas. Yes, it's not too early. Which of course leads me to the topic of today's post, my Christmas story that is going to the printer. Don't you just love those words?

Tumbleweed Christmas is a story about love and miracles. The book, written for early readers, is illustrated by Bridget McKenna. 4 RV Publishing LLC gave my characters the chance to show the world that miracles do exist though sometimes we have to help a little. Here's the gorgeous cover.




 Have a nice week.

Happy reading and writing.

  2. Thanks, Darby. You're down for everything. :)

    When do you want to interview Griffin and/or Basil. Do you want to wait awhile until school gets back into a groove?
