"Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let the trees of the forest sing for joy." – Psalm 96:11-12
Here, from my writing desk, I can see aspen gold sprinkled all across the foothills, out my west-facing windows. Yes, it’s that time of year when people from all over the world travel to see the breathtaking dazzle of Colorado’s aspen trees.
So, if it’s the start of October’s month of sunny days and chilly nights, then it’s time to thank all of you who turned out for my recent book tour to the beautiful Carolinas. I should have kept a notebook of the many ways my readers told me that my books are making a different in their lives. Truly heartwarming—and what an encouragement, too. Thank you to every book buyer, librarian, reader-friend, and my tour manager and publicists who so faithfully accompany me each and every tour. I am so grateful, and blessed.
And…if you’re anywhere within driving distance of Lancaster County on Saturday, October 21, at 2 PM, I’d love to meet you at my free Author Event at the Lititz Public Library at 651 Kissel Hill Rd., Lititz, Pa. (You can learn more and RSVP here.) I’ll share about my writing life, and the idea behind The Proving, as well as signing The Proving and The Beverly Lewis Amish Coloring Book, available for purchase. I’m thrilled to be coming home…and to see many of my dear reader-friends!
My latest novel has received high acclaim and a starred review for Publishers Weekly, as well. My brand-new Amish coloring book is bringing hours of joy and relaxation to thousands of my readers, as well. What a happy start to autumn, jah?
On another happy note, I’m currently working through revisions for my spring 2018 novel, The Road Home, available April 3—another intriguing stand-alone novel set deep in Amish farmland (two settings: St. Joseph County, Michigan and Lancaster County, Pennsylvania).
