Yesterday I got to go to an author signing. (We don’t get too many in Chattanooga.) And even more exciting, the author Lurlene McDaniel is a friend.
Here are some photos from the signing.
|Here's Lurlene and me.|
|Accompanying Lurlene yesterday was debut novelist Lauren Morrill who wrote Meant To Be, a YA comedy I can’t wait to read.|
It was a wonderful signing—lots of fans, standing room only! Lurlene talked about her writing, she’s promoting her fiftieth published novel, The Year of Luminous Love. (No that's not a typo. It's her 50th novel.) And it's written for her fans who have grown-up. So Luminous Love is peopled with characters who are a bit older than traditional YA.
I’m really looking forward to reading it. Lurlene writes beautifully!
Here are links:
The Year of Luminous Love: hardback at Amazon, ebook at Amazon.

Connie, you are so pretty!! And that is AMAZING that you got to meet Lurlene McDaniel. I loved her books when I was in middle and high school - they were everywhere and all of my friends were reading them!ReplyDelete
Thanks for your sweet words to me!
And about Lurlene, I've known her for quite a few years, and I can tell you that not only is she a wonderful writer, she's a very kind and gracious person.
FIFTY books?! Wow. Impressive. Did she start writing as a zygote?ReplyDelete
You look loverly. Still have that happy I-just-went-to-Paris glow.
