My friend, Rene Gutteridge and Cheryl McKay, have co-aughtored a new fun
sassy book called Never The Bride
and I can't wait to plunk myself down on the couch and plow through it.
Of course, I never tell my writer friends that I plow right through their books
because I know it has taken them months maybe years to write and I don't want them
to know I finish it off in a few days.
But if it's a good book that can't be put down, it really is their fault anyway
so they should just write lousier if they want me to take longer to read it.
The last project Rene and Cheryl worked on together was The Ultimate Gift novelatizion which Cheryl wrote the screenplay for.
For any of you who say The Ultimate Gift in theaters you know it was a keeper.
Never The Bride tells the story of Jessie Stone, a women who has dreamed up hundreds of marriage proposals and fantasized about falling in love. This mostly amounts to a lot of doodling in her journal and not so much falling in love with actual persons. Until God shows up one day, in the flesh, and becomes a part of her every day life.
The back cover asks,
"What will it take to convince her that the Almighty has a better plan than one she's already cooked up in her journals? Can she turn over her pen and trust someone else to craft a love beyond her wildest dreams?"
And I'm hooked. It's the next book on the nightstand next to my bed.
If your hooked, too, and wish you had it on your nightstand put your name in the comments because Rene sent me an extra copy of Never The Bride to giveaway....because she is cool like that.
Giveaway ends July 15, 2009.
