"Oh, Janice -- What an unfortunate experience! Like you, I'm surprised no one told you about the bankruptcy and cancellation, but I'm glad you were able to salvage the vacation with a trip to Key West. It's a fascinating…"
"What did you farm? I've always lived in a town, but I remember visiting cousins who had a farm and thinking it was a wonderful place to be. At the time, I didn't think about the "no vacation" aspect of farming."
"My husband and I did that one year when we lived near Philadelphia. It was so much fun to play tourist, especially during the week when places like the Art Museum (with those steps that Rocky made famous) was less crowded."
"It is a small world! My nephew and his family were visiting Disney World when they ran into his eye surgeon. Who would have thought that with all the people at the park at the same time that they'd see each other?"
"It's interesting how bookstores carry one book and not another. I find that frustrating, but it's one of the facts of life and one of the reasons I try to make my books stand alone. Like you, I've sometimes come into the…"
"I'm so glad you enjoyed Scattered Petals and Tomorrow's Garden. Did you also read Paper Roses, the first in the trilogy? For me, each one was special in its own way, although I must say that the research for Scattered Petals…"
"How fortunate that your resort had electricity. That made the whole thing sound like an adventure rather than an ordeal. And aren't post-storm waves impressive? I was in Newport, RI during a storm. While I doubt it was…"

We've had great BOOK FUN this year with lots of book giveaways, and you’ve gotten to know lots of authors. Bethany house, Revell Publishers and CAN (Christian Authors Network) are our sponsors this year. We are thrilled to be working with them.
Check out the Book Club Pages. We have review sites, Book stores have put up pages, some of them are in the process of starting a book club, it just might be in your area. This is not a site you need to be on every day, but just check out parts of it when you can.
I LOVE Book clubs!! I’m passionate about getting the word out about Christian authors and their books to book clubs. I think this could be a great for them to meet for each to learn from the other; authors from book clubs and book clubs from authors, I’ve seen that so far. It’s been fun to watch. We’ll see where the Lord leads us in 2012. We have many exciting opportunities lined up just for you. Book Clubs are about relationships with each other and with authors. It’s a win win! If you have any questions you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also wanted you to know that The Book Club Network has a FACEBOOK page. You can hear about others giveaways and book events there too. If you are an author you can POST your book events on the FRONT PAGE of this network for all to see. Announce book signings, speaking engagements or anything else book related! We have people from ALL over the USA, Canada and world wide FACE BOOK LINKhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/146903260542/
