Peace and all good, good people. I want to thank you for your prayers for my lovie. She's back home and sorting things out with her loved ones.
And I got more good news today. I found out my first novel, Murder, Mayhem, and a Fine Man was picked up by a big honkin' book club!
Yes lovies, turns out that somebody at Simon and Schuster is earning their keep!
The premier African American book club, Black Expressions, is going to feature the first of the Amanda Bell Brown Mysteries as their Featured selection alternate for February 2008. I can't tell you how exciting this is to me. The club gets a huge amount of exposure, and frankly, I never thought anything I wrote would make it in there.
We've got a lot to party about today, my friends. As the Mother of God said so beautifully in the Magnificat, "My soul doth magnify the Lord; and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my savior."
Rejoice with me.
