Sarah and Sophie (the main characters in my Quilting Cozy series) have totally ignored my reluctance to write another book in the series. They continued to niggle at me about allowing them to participate in a new story: a country singer, a murder, a nursing home in turmoil, a night sky filled with glittering stars, and all their friends.
I stopped fighting it, and now Book #11 is in the works! It will be many months before it hits the shelves and the e-readers, so this is just an early notice to my faithful readers. It will probably be entitled Missouri Stars, and that will be the quilt block featured in the quilt on the cover.
“It looks like we could touch the stars from here, but some seem so far away they couldn’t be reached for eternities.”… Sophie moved toward the bench without taking her eyes off the sky…“I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a magnificent night sky,” she muttered…”It’s magical. Do you think the night skies in Missouri are always this spectacular?”
Their overnight trip to Missouri left Sarah determined to design a quilt featuring the Missouri Star block. As always, the characters in the book will be creating the quilt which is featured on the cover. And the directions for the quilt will be included at the end of the story!
Thank you, my dear readers, for all your encouragement. As you know, the entire series (Books 1-10) is being published by C&T Publishing and will be re-issued beginning in September (two per month), and each will include the directions for the cover quilt. This will be an exciting year!
My very best wishes to all.
