Yesterday the UPS man delivered two copies of The Perfect Life, my latest novel, hot off the press. The cover for this book went through at least ten different versions, but when the publisher got it, they really got it right. It’s truly beautiful, and even more so "in person" than just seeing the graphic on the computer screen. I got a little thrill just holding the book in my hands for the first time.
I put one copy on my bookshelf and gave the other to my mom. She had it read in no time, unusual since she tends to fall asleep a lot during the day. But I guess my story interested her enough to keep her awake. That made me feel as good as the words of praise she gave me when she finished it.
I hope other readers will enjoy this story as much as my mom. Look for it at this year’s Women of Faith conferences as well as (in a few weeks) at your favorite bookstores.
