Remember the contest from my April newsletter? The one where I said I had some REALLY exciting news to share…and then I asked you to guess what the big news was?(Did you really think I was pregnant with TRIPLETS! Really?!)

Well…Since no one guessed it exactly, I chose the first person to guess “new series” as the grand prize winner and five runners ups were chosen at random to receive a SWF book of their choice.

$50 CBD Winner: Wendy (Wsmarple)

If you missed receiving my newsletter last week, here’s the big news that I’ve had to keep under the hat for the last few months…(drumroll please!)…

Mary Ann Kinsinger and I have been contracted by Revell to write a four book children’s chapter series that will be loosely based on Mary Ann’s Amish childhood.  If you don’t know Mary Ann’s work, oh…you’re missing out! She writes a wonderful blog called A Joyful Chaos that is wildly popular! So popular that the New York Times mentioned it in a column. And well-deserved, too. Mary Ann has a very special way of creating word stories.

I spent a day last week with Mary Ann at her home in western Pennsylvania. It was wonderful to meet this very special woman and her family face-to-face, see the area she grew up in, and talk shop. Our first book is due September 1st…will be released September 2012.

If you want to get updates about this project and other goings-on, please contact me through my website and add your name to the mailing list. We’re offering some fabulisimo contests and giveaways, courtesy of Revell Books. I’m going to have two back-to-back releases this summer…so we’re gearing up!

Fun stuff going on! Don’t miss out!
