~ Julie Lessman and Maggie Brendan ~

(I meant to post this photo when I started my "new" blog, but it slipped my mind until now.)

I had the privilege of meeting both Julie Lessman AND Maggie Brendan at a Book Signing in Buford, GA (which is about an hour and a half north of me!) back in June of this year. They were at the LifeWay bookstore there. It was AWESOME!!! They are the first "famous" people I've ever had the honor of meeting. They are both such sweethearts! I wish we all lived closer to one another because I would love to be able to visit with them occasionally. I took my copies of all of their books for them to autograph for me ~ sweet! LOL My sister, Whitney, went with me. She loves to read as much, if not more, than I do. We had a great time! Okay, okay...I know you're ready for the photo, so I'll hush now. :) Here it is...

Maggie Brendan, me, and Julie Lessman (from left to right)
Aren't they both too cute??? :)

I was hoping to have already posted my review of Maggie's debut novel, No Place for a Lady, but I haven't been able to get it back from whoever has borrowed it...one of my sisters, or my Mom. I'm going to try to get it this weekend, so I can post my review real soon. Be sure to check back...if you haven't read it yet, you should really think about getting it! Book 2, The Jewel of His Heart, will be released on October 1st, so you need to hurry up and read No Place for a Lady!

To read my review of Julie's debut novel, A Passion Most Pure, just click on the title.

You can purchase any of their books at Amazon.com or Christianbook.com.

I have No Place For a Lady on my list to read... but not yet. I don't have unlimited funds. :o( I cannot believe you met Julie Lessman! I am so jealous! lol I wrote her. That was about all the courage I had. She was very sweet about it too. lol I love her books so much I would probably blubber like a fool if I met her in person.
