Beau tapped Prissie’s shoulder, and she turned away from a spinner of Valentine’s cards to meet his concerned gaze. “Don’t worry so much, Sis.” He poked at the furrow between her eyebrows, smiling when she swatted his hand away. “Relax. You like this kind of stuff.”
“Meaning you don’t?”
He glanced around with a pained expression at the metallic glare of heart-shaped balloons, oversized boxes of chocolates, and doily-festooned sentiments. “No lie. I’d rather be in the bookstore.”

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and I’m preparing a mailing! Those who’ve been around for a while probably already know how much I enjoy traditional mail—stationary, notes, postcards, stamps. If you join my mailing list, I drop things off at the post office from time to time. Like the art cards I have made for every story … and postcards from all over when my family travels.

Last month, I kicked off a monthly newsletter. Subscribers get first looks at book covers, excerpts from whatever I’m writing, and other exclusive stuff. (It’ll be different every time, so it’s hard to predict what’ll turn up in your inbox!) ♥ The next newsletter will be ready on Friday, February 14, so if you haven’t signed up yet … please, do! Here’s what I have planned:
♦ Postcard reveal for Book 4: The Garden Gate
♦ Excerpt from a brand new Threshold-based serial, which will debut in Christian Fiction Online Magazine in March
Any Valentine’s Day wishes? We can have a heart-to-heart in the comments! Any questions for the cast of the Threshold Series? They’re never far. ; )
AUTHOR NOTE: The comments below are loads of fun, but they contain
MILD SPOILERS FOR BOOK 4: THE GARDEN GATE. Readers beware!
