Tonight We're Going to Party Like It's 1999...

I was dreaming when I wrote this, forgive me if I go astray... Okay, I'll stop now.

I know I said I was going to blog about my bookstore adventures, but we had so much good news, I'm going to hold that until Thursday. I know, I know, you're terribly disappointed and aren't sure you'll ever recover.




First off: We made Writers Digest's list of 101 best web-sites for writers!... along with our good friends Chip MacGregor, Mike Hyatt and Rachelle Gardner. Few things get us this excited.


We were on the list in 2008 and then in 2009 I received an email from someone at WD congratulating us, but then strangely our name wasn't on the list. Anyway, the 2008 in our signature line was starting to look a little dated, so this has come in the nick of time!





Also, I just learned that Crossing Oceans was chosen as Books A Million's June FaithPoint Book Club selection. HUGE news!





Also, Harriet Klausner (the #1 Amazon reviewer) gave Crossing Oceans 5 stars and a kind review and the novel also received a great review on Fiction Addict.





Oh and the good people of Roanoke City Libraries have my mug on a magazine cover, GINORMOUS posters all over the city, and, believe it or not, a billboard. Ha. They're doing it to promote my book launch party April 27th. If you're in the area, stop by! It's at the main Roanoke (Virginia) Library on Jefferson St. 6-8 pm. We're having food, live music, live theatre, a parody video starring moi, and of course a book signing. How much is all of this costing me? Not a dime. Thank you Roanoke Libraries!!!


Thanks everyone for at least pretending to be interested as I finally get to share the experiences of having my first novel published after all these years.

That's so much fun, Gina. And after 10 years, and the enormous amount of work you've put in to deliver a stellar novel, you deserve it. I'm so proud of you!!!

Very cool, Gina.

Just started Crossing Oceans for the CFBA Tour. Yeah, you nailed your voice.

Thanks folks!

Congratulations! I look forward to reading the book someday soon. I have been following Novel Journey since around 2007; and I have enjoyed the interviews and discussions. I'm not surprised that you are again included on the WD list. Keep up the good work.

Cup o' joy and a fresh taste of the bread of heaven...
