Let me tell you, though. The years go by faster and faster the older we get. When I was first published in the early '80s, I would wish away the months as I waited for a new book to hit the shelves. Somewhere along the way, I stopped wishing my life away. I knew the next year would get here, whether I wished it or not.
And speaking of a book coming out ... (how's that for a segue?) ... my latest novel was shipped special delivery to my local Family Christian store for a signing last week (it won't reach other stores for another week or two). A Matter of Character is the third and final book in the Sisters of Bethlehem Springs series. Unlike Kim, I don't sit down and read my books when I get them. You know why? Because there is always something I find that I wish I'd done a little differently. If possible, I would probably still be editing and tweaking my very first book, all these years later.
Finally, I want to tell you to "Save the Date." On Friday, May 21st, I’ll be hosting a virtual release party for my new novel, A Matter of Character! Readers and friends from all over the world can join together to meet with me and with each other. The party will be held from 6 pm-8 pm (Mountain Daylight Time) on my Facebook “Robin Lee Hatcher, Novelist” Page under the Notes tab: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Robin-Lee-Hatcher-Novelist/48662178098?v=app_2347471856&ref=mf
If you’re not already a participant on my Novelist Page, please click the “Like” button now! During the party, I’ll be giving away autographed copies of A Matter of Character to friends, fans, and party participants. I’ll also be revealing some behind-the-scenes information about the book and answering as many questions as I can. And look for some information to be released during the evening about a great contest I'll be hosting along with my publisher Zondervan. (Trust me, you do not want to miss entering this contest!)
