HeartSeekers FRONT CoverIt’s out! Woohoo! The Heart Seeker Series is finally out and in PRINT!

This book is such an amazing blessing to me in so many ways! First the fact that it is, indeed, my first book in print. I don’t have my copies, yet, but there really is something about holding that book in your hands! Don’t get me wrong; I LOVE e-books. My iPad is FULL! But holding a print book in my hands that I actually helped to write – oh my, that’s special.

I haven’t actually experienced it yet! Anticipation is a beautiful thing, though! Like Christmas morning’s gifts that hang around the tree all month long.

The second thing that I love about this book is that my very first published book is included as a special gift! The Christmas Tree Treasure Hunt became an Amazon best-seller! Yeah, my first time out of the gate, I was on a top 100 authors list for 8 days. I ranked higher than Leo Tolstoy! Hows that for a laugh!

Seriously, though, I can’t take credit for that. The story is absolutely charming and the chapters, all by different authors, entwine seamlessly.

And that leads to the third bit of awesome about this book. These authors that I’ve had the pleasure of working with are flat-out amazing! Their writing is sharp and engaging. Their concepts are cutting-edge creative. And they’re delightful ladies! I’m thrilled to have been a part of these teams. And I feel even further blessed to call our editor friend!

Another thing that jazzes the tar out of me about this book is that of the four stories included… (Yes, I said four. All complete. All romances. All precious stories of faith.) I got to be an author on all of them! God is so good! And His timing was PERFECT! That’s a story I’ll have to tell another time! Maybe next week!

Last, but not least, I have to share a little buzz. This is like the school-girl crush type of buzz that shimmered right through me when I looked up this book on Amazon to get the shortcut link. Right there under the title. Right by the word author… my name. Tickled doesn’t begin to describe my excitement! Check it out for yourself HERE! Squee!

I cannot wait to hold this baby in my own hands. Feeling a little like a first time momma right now!

Author: Marji Laine

Marji is a homeschooling mom with teenage twins left in the nest. She spends her days transporting to and from volleyball, teaching writing classes at a local coop, and directing the children’s music program at her church. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.
