A New Novel



My dear friend Lisa has just published her first novel, The Shoebox. I am so excited and so proud of her. I just received my copy and cannot wait to immerse myself in the intricate story of Peter and Maddy.

I'm also incredibly inspired by her for she is a dreamer, and a doer. Whether it's publishing her first novel, sewing a quilt, knitting a scarf (I wear one of her creations everyday), throwing an annual Christmas party, or making jam (she just sent me homemade cranberry jam) - she dreams and she does.

She also happens to be the kindest and most generous person, and I am so lucky to call her my dear friend.

You can find her novel, The Shoebox, at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Catherine I am so moved by this post. You are so wonderful to do this, I am so flattered. You give me way too much credit. But that's the person you are, you see the good in everything. I am so blessed to have you as my friend. I am inspired by you in all that you do. I love you. Thank you.

This is so inspiring to hear about your friend, Lisa, who not only dreams but also takes actions to make her dreams come true. She sounds like a wonderful person with so many talents. I'm thrilled that she is now sharing her talent with us through her book. I see you have links to her blog, so I'll go ahead and check out her blog to learn more about her book & cranberry jam! Have a good day. ox

I just looked the book up on Amazon, and it sounds so interesting! I look forward to reading it as soon as I finish my current selection. Thank you for the recommendation!

Congratulations to your friend Lisa!!
I wouldn't "judge a book by its cover," but that's a haunting, lovely cover. There are so many people who want to write, but few who sit down and make that happen. I think that's a brave thing, not just creative. I enjoy hearing about new books and new blogs--this is both. :)

Take good care,
Em

Books and fabrics are my weakness. Thank you for letting us know about such a great book.
