Our weekend was a tiny bit crazy... with a book signing at Barnes & Noble, home projects, a date night to celebrate our 13th-anniversary (which is today)...and a lot of painting, so I'm reminding myself once again to simplify.
It's a constant reminder.
Anyway. I know I said I was ending my Reader Appreciation Month in November, so I guess I'm going to call this my "Happy Ho-Ho-Ho" month or something equally less charming...because I have another Book Lover's Giveaway and it's a week-long event (with a chance to win a whole box of awesome books!)
Personally, I think books make GREAT Christmas presents, and I am often asked which writers I recommend...so, I've decided to tell you about some of my favorites. Every day this week, I'll introduce you to a writer or two and I'll tell you how you can WIN books from every single one of them! <Keep Reading>
Today, I'm excited to talk to my friend, the fabulous Deb Raney, about this series:
I've read each of these books and loved them all, and I absolutely LOVE to hear what Deb has to say about writing, family and life in general. Read on to find out more!
Nosy Courtney: Where'd you get the idea for this series?
Deb: Real life provides a great deal of inspiration for me, and that was the case with the Hanover Falls series. My husband placed a newspaper clipping beside my plate at breakfast one morning, the story of nine firefighters who died in a tragic blaze in South Carolina. "I think there's something worth exploring here," he said. I began thinking how the tragedy would change the lives of those firefighters' families, yet how they would pull together, because the firefighting world is a "family" unto itself, and before long, the Hanover Falls series was putting itself together in my mind.
