SAWR Update

Ahem.  Because the Fairlawn series is getting an overhaul with new covers, etc., the publisher decided to postpone the release of SAWR by a few days in order to get the new copies of Doesn't She Look Natural? in circulation.  

The good news is that She Always Wore Red has rolled off the presses.  And the better news is that yesterday I learned that the new copies of Doesn't She Look Natural have just rolled off the presses, too.  

And even better news--I handed in the third book, She's In a Better Place a couple of weeks ago, and have been waiting to hear my editors' reaction.  I heard from one of them yesterday, and this is part of what she said:  

I planned a day of working at home yesterday so that I could enjoy in peace this wonderful book.  As it turned out, yesterday was the first day above 70 in Chicago land in six months.  I sat outside on my patio and cried like a baby as ******.

I am so excited about this book.  I believe readers will find such hope and heart.  While I am sad that *** didn’t ******, the reality is that many believers have to ***** with the **** that ***** had. 


So, just wanted you to know that I’m just too proud that SIABP is a Tyndale book.  

Angie here again:  I know I'll have to make a few revisions--I always do--but I'm relieved that the last book seems to bring the saga to a successful close.  And I'm sorry, but the asterisks are necessary to keep from spoiling the plot.  :-)  

So--Linda--have faith!  The books are in the pipeline and on their way!

Good news! I've been waiting to buy Doesn't She Look Natural because I want all the covers to match! :)

I loved Doesn't She Look Natural?!
Glad to hear the other two are in the works. You are coming to my church on May 3--can't wait!

Sigh. These titles are going to be about ME if I don't get to read one soon! :-) I gasped in dismay when I read this!

Just this weekend after checking Barnes & Noble again Friday, I pulled up several online places, obviously to no avail.

BTW, in case you have a surge of hits on an old post, I was tagged for the six-word memoir meme, so I linked your post in mine with all the fun Christian authors' responses!

Thanks for keeping us in the loop! And I LOVE the new covers!

Rel said...

Fabulous, Angela :) I'll post the new cover on my blog. Do you have a synopsis to go with it yet?

Angela said...

Yes, Rel--there's a brief synopsis on my "Coming Soon" web page. :-)

and thanks for the link, Linda!

I love those covers! I bought the first one before the new cover.... it is SO tempting to buy it with the new cover... so very, very tempting.

"Lead us not in to temptation ... " Surely this line does not refer to buying the book with the new cover, does it? If it does, then I am in deep trouble! Come on, Leslie, join me. Just think how nice they will look in the bookcase!!! Clyde

Holly said...

Ahhh!! Those astericks are killing me :)

What do they say? What do they mean? I consider myself properly "teased."

So I'll go console myself with the rest of my re-read's of the "Anne of Green Gables" books until yours come out .

Blessings to you, Angie!

Leslie said...

Clyde - I know, I know... Hmm. Oh! know - maybe I can give away my current copy - and then I won't feel bad about buying a new copy.

Yeah, that's it! I'll regift it! LOL :)

I love the covers! The one, then two, then three Gerber daisies. Clever! I always have a hard time figuring out which title comes first when looking at books in a series. On some books it's like where's Waldo to find the little numbers on the spine. Can't wait to read SAWR! Ooh, but today at the library they had the new title by Brock and Bodie Thoene, Seventh Day.

I'm so happy to have found your blog! I got your book, "The Adoption Option," many years ago, when I was researching adoption. I had no idea you have written so many more since then. I'll definitely be back to visit!
