I Am Officially in Barnes and Noble



WhooHoo, I’m in Barnes and Nobel! It may not be my book, but it is still pretty cool. :) If you would like to read it you can click on the picture.

I was sent the picture, minus the frame, several months ago and asked to come up with a story blurb for the back of the puzzle box. Nothing else was sent, not what they were going for, or any thoughts from the company, just the picture.

It only took a few minutes to write it and once I sent it back in the company loved it. Then it was sent for approval by BnN, who would say yes, they want to buy it or no, have it rewritten. They said yes, leave it exactly as is.

So, if you like to do puzzles, here’s the link to it. I Love You

It’s exciting to see it in the stores and online.

Happy Friday and I hope everyone has a great weekend!! We are off on Monday, gotta love the three day weekends. How about you? Are you off on Monday? Any plans?

WW’s and PD’s,
Vicki

Vicki - congratulations! I love your box cover story. It conjures a picture of a couple's lifetime together. See you soon!

Great job, Vicki!!

How much of the $12.95 cover price do you get? :-)

(See my comment on your last post)

Awww! This is a super-neat really one-off opportunity. Great job :-)

Vicki said...

Karen, thank you and I can't wait to see you at the retreat!!

Bill - For something like this I don't receive anything for the actual sales of the puzzle, just for writing the piece.

Lacey - Thank you. I was really excited when I found out they wanted it. :)

Congratulations, Vicki! What beautiful words.

I used to be a puzzle junkie but no more, at least not if I really plan to ever be published.

Very cool about the puzzlebox.

We're headed to Universal on Monday with our not-quite-six-year-old neice. Should be fun.

That's beautiful, Vicki! You truly write "from the heart!"
