I’m working on final edits for my October release, Love is Grand. I know some authors don’t enjoy edits, but I do. This is my final chance to make sure I have chosen the right words to tell my story.
And I love this story. For those of you who’ve read the other books in the Walk in the Park series, you’re familiar with Ainsley and everything she’s gone through. Here’s the tentative back cover copy:
Ainsley Davis had it all. . .
. . .a job she loved
. . .a husband she adored
. . .a baby on the way
But after her husband’s unexpected death, she left her job and retreated to the safety of her parents’ home. Two years later, Ainsley is still there, raising the baby alone and envisioning danger around every corner. When her position as a park ranger at the Grand Canyon reopens, she realizes God may be trying to tell her to return—if she can face the fears that hold her captive.
Fellow ranger Dustin Cooper is thrilled to have his old friend back. But Ainsley isn’t the fearless girl he remembers. Even so, Dustin pushes her to put her trust in God and jump back into her life.
Policeman Jake McGuire fled to the Grand Canyon after an on-the-job mistake. He’s determined to live a stress-free, anonymous life. Until he meets Ainsley. Suddenly he realizes he’d like to be a hero again—if only in her eyes.
Can Ainsley regain her zest for life—despite the risks—and find the right man to walk alongside her? If so, she may be surprised to find that even the second time around, Love is Grand.
Well? What do you think? Sound like a book you want to read? I hope so!
In addition to edits, it’s also time to pen the dedication. I find dedicating the book to be very difficult. I read somewhere that a book dedication was kind of like a tattoo–once it was inked, there was no turning back.
So far, I’ve dedicated books to both of my parents, both sets of grandparents and three of my best friends. I have a couple more days to settle on the dedication for Love is Grand. I have an idea for the dedication, but I’m not sure yet.
How about you? If you wrote a book, who would you dedicate it to?
