Shari, I was thinking of you when I saw your name in the list as I was preparing it. :D I'm happy dancing with you.

It will be both traditional print and e-book, and I think it should be available in September next year. That's the time frame, at any rate.

(And I've just set Book 4 onto the timeline as well, but not going to mention anything about that just yet).

Love, Deb

Man, just LOOKING at these names brings back some wonderful memories! And I'm excited about this book - this was a VERY stretchy - and FUN - quarter!! (and yeah, I moved into masters here.) Hope you CAN find these folks!

Did you ever find JoJo for the other book, Deb?

There are a few I'm fairly sure will be lost. Maxx. for one. He's a bit tricky to track down (from past experience). There are a couple of others I'm not hopeful about, as well. I'm hoping I can find the vast majority, though. I can be a bit of a bloodhound when it comes to things like this.

Did you ever find JoJo for the other book, Deb?


Yes, I did. :D Very happy about that too.

Love, Deb

Deb - just dropped an email to Pepper Basham (who I did NOT remember being at FW LOL) - I follow a group blog she contributes to and have become something of a friend of hers. Guessing her contact info is MAJORLY out of date :)

Hi Pepper. I'm so glad Jo knew you. I haven't started mailing out to the authors for this book yet, but it's really good to have contacts from the outset.

Welcome back!

Love, Deb

I'm so glad you are able to use Cassie's story! I know Lillian had mentioned something about that a little while ago. I know it'll mean a lot to her and I'm so happy that Cassie's family will have a book to honor her. God does amazing things. (And you do a lot of the helping Deb :))
