Spreading Some Good News!

Hey Y'all

I just met a new special friend through my blog and I am so excited about that!  Although we have not met in person and only talked through emails, I know she is a wonderful person so I want to share something about her with all of you in "Blog" land!

My new friend is Melinda Evaul and she is about to have her first book published!  Whew Hoo!  How exciting that must be for her.  Actually she said it was also somewhat scarey!  I would imagine that you would have thoughts of "what if no one likes my book?".  Well I am sure there will be MANY people, especially quilters, who will enjoy her book.

Here is a brief tidbit about her book....
Novel # 1 in the Quilt Barn Series
A modern day Beauty and the Beast meet in their fifties when a disfigured carpenter becomes a long-term guest at a bed and breakfast in the western-style tourist town of Love Valley, NC.
Benjamin Pruitt plans to repair the town’s buildings and return to his solitary life. Sarah Campbell longs for freedom since her long task as caregiver has ended.
As the tattered fabric of Benjamin and Sarah’s lives unfolds, will they piece together a beautiful design to warm their waning years, or follow their individual goals?

While traveling the back roads of rural North Carolina and Tennessee, Melinda came to appreciate the preservation of rural cultural through a unique art form along the Quilt Barn Trails. Come follow her adventures along the Quilt Trails of America at  
My novels will all have an underlying Christian theme. It's my reason for writing. My way of spreading the gospel message.

Melinda posted a comment on my site and mentioned Love Valley, NC  which is about 45 minutes from where I live.  I have been there many times with horses.  It is known as the "Cowboy Capital of the World".
Yes it is like walking back in time to the old western days.  Only horses are allowed on the main street.

This book will have several things that I am thrilled about, quilting, barn quilts, Faith and a bit of romance!
What more does a girl need!

NOW here is where you can help.  I am trying to spread the word about Melinda and her book, Grow Old With Me.  So if you could share this information with ten people and then they share it with ten more, just think of how many people across America will be eagerly awaiting the release of this book.  How cool is that!    Being that Quilters, Sewers, and Crafters are wonderful people that like to share tips and ideas, I thought this would be a great way to get the word out there.  so....
Start Spreading Some Good News!

Thanks Y'all !

Since you are so near, I will invite you to a barn full of quilts!
Barnful of Quilts takes place on Saturday in Waxhaw. Hope you will come. I will be demonstrating paintstiks in a stall near the coffee shop.
