    I posted a while back that I'm writing a series of novels about quilters, quilt barn painters, and other related topics. The first book in the series, Grow Old With Me, is available now.

    I have it listed on my website
    http://melindaevaul.com This is the only place where it is for sale. Stores take 40% and Amazon takes 55% so I'm selling as many books as possible myself first.

    I would appreciate you spreading the word to your friends. Visit my website and take a look. I'd love to mail you a signed copy.

    I just ordered your book, a gift for my daughter but I plan on reading it too. Looking forward to the rest of the series. Thanks for the PM to let me know it was available. Good luck on your ventures.

    Good luck to you--how exciting! I am in the editing process of my book that follows the barn quilt trails from their origins to the current 29 states. Such a great topic for a novel!

    If you haven't seen my blog, check out americanquilttrail.com, where you can find out a lot more about barn quilts.

    Best holiday wishes

    I love WNC--Barbara Webster is a dear friend! The first page of my calendar is a photo that she gave me for the book. That reminds me--I owe her an email!

    Of course I know Barbara too! Had an interview with her for a future novel. Plan to write one about the Quilt Barn Painter.

    Small world indeed.

    I'll get these orders shipped ASAP. If you need them before Christmas please send me a PM. I'll do my best but we're cutting time close.

    The books people ordered on or before Dec. 15 were shipped today. Some may get there by Christmas but I wouldn't count on that. Thanks to all who subscribed to my newsletter and/or ordered my novel. My printer can print as needed so it will never be unavailable.
    Got a good lead on a plot idea for book #2. Now I need some time to get to the writing part of my life.
    Enjoy the holiday season.
