|Box of A Cup of Christmas Cheer Books from Guidepost Books|
Here is the under 100 words blurb I wrote up for my book signing in late July in Michigan's beautiful upper peninsula. I'll be at the Tahquamenon Logging Museum in Michigan. They are doing Lumberjack Breakfasts and also a music festival. I will be the first author they've had doing a book signing at it which is really neat!
The two book set is now available for purchase at the museum's store. Thank you to Rose Anderson for your help!
Carrie Fancett Pagels, Ph.D. (www.carriefancettpagels.com) is author the short story, “Snowed In,” part of Guidepost Books A Cup of Christmas Cheer (October 2013), which sold out of 30,000 copies two weeks after the first print run. “Snowed In” was set at her great-grandparents’ log cabin, which is part of the Tahquamenon Logging Museum site. She is the granddaughter of Maude Carrie Williams. Carrie, a former psychologist, resides in Virginia with her family but grew up in Newberry. She will be signing books at the festival from 10-12 Saturday and Sunday.

On December 14th I will be at Shirley Plantation in beautiful Charles City, Virginia, for a book signing from 1-4 pm. I will be joined by Cynthia Howerter, co-author (with LaTan Murphy) of "God's Provision in Tough Times" which I contributed to. Also, Mary Miley will be signing copies of both her Christmas books and her recent mystery release, which won an award for best debut in suspense and mystery. Afterwards, we'll be dining at the Charles City Tavern.
This coming Friday and Saturday, December 6th and 7th I'll be signing copies of my books at Edgehill Community Center in Yorktown, Virginia.
I will have a guaranteed minimum of TEN sets of the "A Cup of Christmas Cheer" book set from Guidepost Books at EACH of the book signings. These wonderful hardcover gift sets SOLD OUT in their first printing and have already gone into second print! So if you are in the vicinity of either book signing, that would be a great place to get your hands on these popular books immediately!

Six authors will be doing a Blog Hop that will conclude on the Colonial Quills blog at the end of November. The Grand Prize winner will be announced on CQ! BUT--before then you need to visit each of the Blog Hop stops. Each blog "hop" or stop will have a giveaway. And at the end of all the hops there will be a Grand Prize to someone who has visited and commented on every blog stop. A $70.00 porcelain tea set from Yorktown's Victory Center will be part of the Grand Prize along with other gifts such as a $10 Amazon card, $10 Amazon gift card, $10 Starbucks gift card, special hot cocoa packets and more! Possibly one of the best contributions to the giveaway is an actual SET of the two books. One lucky Grand Prize winner will receive the entire Grand Prize package from the six authors who participated.
Here's the schedule:
Friday, November 8th, Carla Olson Gade is on Carrie Fancett Pagels' blog
Saturday, November 9th, Ashley Clark is on Anita Mae Draper's blog.

|Return to Shirley Plantation by Carrie Fancett Pagels|
What a nice discovery this morning! This would have been my mother's 83rd birthday had she survived her Whipple surgery three years ago. I like to think Mom is smiling down from heaven at this Five Star review by Sylvia. Thank you to Sylvia for reading and reviewing Return to Shirley Plantation which is a story about obedience to God and His direction.
Where the past & present collide,
July 25, 2013
In Return to Shirley Plantation I was swept back in American history to the Civil War in the south. As the novella unfolded I felt like I stepped onto Shirley Plantation experiencing the full depth and breadth of the characters emotions, smells, and how the war affected the Shirley Plantation family, soldiers, and the soldiers families.
For those who doubt God has a greater plan read this book and see how our lives are entwined. How God hears our wishes and desire and how faith, patience, and obedience on our part help those plans to unfold.
I adore Angelina Scott! Some may see her as a beautiful deceiver pretending to be a widow mourning while guarding her heritage and her sister's children. I see her strength, patience, and obedience in God. Her love for her family. I see the love of family overcoming the experiences associated with war between the north and south.
How lives who are meant to meet do meet and how protected secrets revealed face to face our more alive and full of meaning then words can ever express. Just when I thought I knew a character another secret was artfully revealed.
I wanted the book to never end I want to follow Angelina through old age. Bring on volume 2!
