Dear Gracie Lee Fan Club Members,
I like the way this is going so far.
I am so blown away by the way friends and family and people I’ve never met have embraced The Accidental Salvation of Gracie Lee. I don’t know what I expected, but I certainly didn’t expect such excitement. The fact that anyone takes time out of a beautiful spring day to attend a book signing makes me happy. But the number of people who have been to two and three books signings is astounding!
That’s a fan club, I think.
A wonderful surprise waited for me when I returned home to Fayetteville yesterday—a scrapbook made by Margaret Garrett, who partially inspired my Maggie character—good traits only! Margaret created a detailed keepsake of my Little Rock book signing at WordsWorth Books.
I forgot how nice it is to have real, printed photographs…
And she nailed the embellishments!
I don’t think Margaret spends much time on the computer or reads my blog, but I want everyone to see a few pages. Maybe someone will tell her THANK YOU for me!!
Margaret’s with Gracie Lee, for sure.
I treasure it already.
Farm. Food. Garden. Life.
