Last weekend was a working weekend—I had page proofs to go over for my next release for Kensington Books.
Page proofs are basically what the page will look like once it’s printed out, and I have to go over each page looking for typos. It’s a big job, and I like to do this kind of work when my family is around, because looking for typos doesn’t require any creativity–something that I find difficult to get at when I’ve got my family at home with me.
And there is just something official-feeling about handling a ream of pages like this. It makes the whole experience that much more physical than working on a screen. I feel like I should have a quill, and stormy moors outside my window.
In reality, when I spread all this out on my kitchen table, and instead of stormy moors, I had a rainy street outside my window. Life is much more dramatic in my head. 😉
Until Rosmanda’s story releases, have you read my Christmas story in AN AMISH SECOND CHRISTMAS?
It’s on the shelves now!
For the Amish, the day after Christmas is for family, feasting, and exchanging simple gifts. And for three different couples, it will bring another precious chance for love . . .
THEIR SECOND CHANCE
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Shelley Shepard Gray
Amish nanny Hannah Eicher never thought she’d ever see Rob Prince again. There was no way a relationship between her and the handsome English fireman could overcome her family’s objections—and their personal differences. But when he saves her from a sudden blaze, Hannah longs to see if they can turn holiday hope into a lifetime of happiness . . .
HIS AMISH ANGEL * Patricia Johns
She’s too outspoken to be a proper Amish wife. So as advice columnist “Miss Amish,” Maggie Lapp helps Amish and English with their romantic problems. But when her tradition-minded former fiancé accidentally reveals her secret, Maggie will need more than a miracle to make things right—and find a perfect love for all the Christmases to come . . .
AN HEIRLOOM CHRISTMAS * Virginia Wise
Rachel Miller won’t let her disability keep her from selling heirloom plants and proving she can be independent. She certainly doesn’t need reckless Joseph Webber working at her greenhouse to pay off a disastrous Rumspringa stunt. But she and Joseph have more in common than they think—and their surprising holiday partnership might just blossom into forever joy . . .
