a happy day years in the making

I got a book in the mail this week.

But not just ANY book.

You see, six years ago, I connected with a lovely woman named Susanne Dietze through the ACFW email loop. We both loved historical romance, and we also discovered that not only were we both Anglicans, but we both lived in California!

On the strength of these similarities, we exchanged our WIPs (works-in-progress) and gave each other critiques.

And we both went back to writing and revising.

But we've kept in contact all these long years*, and the book I got in the mail today?

It has Susanne's name on the cover!

I'm so excited. Congratulations, Susie!  I cannot wait to read it!

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

The main characters in one of my favorite series of murder mysteries by Laura Childs is named Suzanne Dietz. :)

Thank you, Susie! It's absolutely my pleasure. :) I'm tickled pink at having a novella by you in my library!

Jen, that's so fun!
