Library News from author Robin Lee Hatcher

My friend, Robin Lee Hatcher, has a new Christmas romance novel out, just in time for the holiday. It's called HEARTS EVERGREEN, published by Steeple Hill, November 2007.

Here's a bit about the new book: In A Cloud Mountain Christmas (Robin's story in Hearts Evergreen, a collection of two novellas from Steeple Hill), Maddie Scott, reeling from the news that her ex-husband has remarried and is expecting a child, heads to Idaho's Cloud Mountain Lodge to negotiate the sale of a valuable manuscript discovered there. But could the lodge's proprietor, Tony Anderson, a man she knew years before in college, be just what Maddie needs to have a merry Christmas after all?

About Hearts Evergreen, the Library Journal says: "Two holiday novellas by a Christy Award winner (Hatcher) and a rising author in the inspirational romance genre (Springer) offer romantic fare perfect for curling up in front of the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate."

By the way, Robin is a winner of the Christy Award for Excellence in Christian Fiction, two RITA Awards for Best Inspirational Romance, two RT Career Achievement Awards, and the RWA Lifetime Achievement Award. She is the author of over 50 novels, including Catching Katie, named one of the Best Books of 2004 by the Library Journal.

I did a Borders Book Club event last night here at the Borders Mall of GA. It was really fun and inspiring. The people who read NOBODY were very excited about the new book. One lady told me that she thought Chester Holte may be an angel in disguise, which, to this day, I think he may have been. That is precisely what I hoped readers would wonder about. This particular woman said the whole way through the book, she was hoping he may turn up alive, somewhere near the end. Does he? I can't tell. Was Chester an angel disguised as a homeless man on the streets of Las Vegas? Let me know what you think!

I'm working on a new book. It will be my fourth suspense novel. I'm really excited about it, because it is THE book I felt God leading me to write way back in 1999. In fact, I did write the whole thing, shopped it, got some interest, but it was never published. Now I am going to take the skeleton of that story and rewrite it. Really, I'm not even re-writing it, I'm simply taking one main storyline and making that one of the main storylines in this new work.

What about you guys? What are you working on? I have a lot of readers who are also writers. If you'd like, post about what book you're writing right now.

I recently got an email from my friend Brian Palmer, a writer for Infuze Magazine, who's written an interesting book called BLINDSIDED. I think he may have a shot at getting it published.

Okay, I've got to get back to work for now. Hey, if you think of it, pray for rain for us down here in Georgia. We're in our worst drought in 20 years.

Shine for Him,
