Good golly, Miss Molly!

It's definitely been a while since I last posted. I do, however, have a good excuse for my laxness. Her name is Molly Deborah Ackerson (notice the middle name?) and she arrived  sixteen years to the day of her parents' wedding. Having been told they couldn't have children has made the birth of Molly Deborah just that much sweeter and sharing their anniversary date with her birthday is the icing on the cake. She's my sixth grandchild and the only girl in the bunch. Her five boy cousins have yet to meet her, but then neither has anybody else, with the exception of her Aunt Dennae who flew up to Alaska from Kentucky both before and after her birth. That will happen eventually, though, and I'm sure the rest of her family will fall in love with her at first sight just as I did.

Welcome to the world, dear, sweet Molly! Here's hoping you're as excited about the rest of what humanity has to offer as you appear to be with your first bite of rice cereal!

On the other hand, I have stayed busy with my writing and am happy to announce the availability of my sixth and final installment of my Laramie on the Lam kids' adventure series on Amazon (, Barnes and Noble (, Omnilit (, Smashwords (, and ( It's called Laramie Conquers the Last Frontier and it ties up all those loose, mysterious, funny ends I left dangling from the other installments. I think your kids will like it. I'd be pleased if you'd take a look if you have a chance. 

Another happy note: Echelon Press will be publishing my Laramie on the Lam series in print! I don't have all the details as yet, but I do know the stories will be combined into one book and I've incorporated study guides at the end of each story for those homeschool parents (or any parents, for that matter) who may want to quiz their kids on the educational tidbits I threw in there.

Until the next time...

Deb, she's so precious. And I just finished the last book in the series. Well done. Glad to see it's going into one book.

Thank you, Dee and Linda. Molly is indeed a blessing and I'm tickled pink about the book :-)

Congratulations, Deb!!! Molly is adorable--and what an amazing gift for her parents.

Congrats on your books too. Keep me posted on the print version of your books. I'd love to buy at least one of those for young family members who would enjoy your stories. Yay, Deb!
Aloha! --Cheryl

Thanks so much for your comments. Molly is such a sweetie and we couldn't be happier to have her. I'm excited about Laramie going to print. I'll be looking for your books, too! Molly will need a library and your series will be just the ticket :-)

Congratulations on seeing your books in print, Deb!

And Molly is such a little cutie. What a perfect name for her, too.
