Before I get to my other big news (Hallmark Channel! OMG!!!), I have to shout something from the rooftops: A Million Little Things hit #8 on the New York Times bestsellers list for combined print and ebook sales!!! Thank you for putting it in the Top Ten. I'm overwhelmed. Those early sales send a strong message to my publisher that you're excited about my books. And on a personal note, it's a very meaningful sign of friendship from my readers. Writing is a solitary activity, but when the stories finally get into your hands, our hearts are connected.

FOOL’S GOLD IS COMING TO THE HALLMARK CHANNEL
I’m thrilled beyond words to tell you that Fool’s Gold is coming to the Hallmark Channel this Christmas! Filming starts on Marry Me at Christmas this month. I don’t have any details on casting yet, but I can’t wait to see who they tap to play movie star Jonny Blaze, and his sweetheart, bridal boutique owner Madeline Krug. (Did you know that Madeline got her last name from one of my readers? A reader named the search and rescue software used in Fool’s Gold, so Madeline got her last name as a thank-you.)
Keep watching future newsletters for the insider scoop on the movie. If I visit the set, I’ll take lots of pictures to share with you. I also have lots of fun stuff planned to celebrate—including a Marry Me at Christmas ornament giveaway later this year, a virtual watch party, and more.

And as if the Hallmark news isn’t exciting enough… I also have a cover reveal to share with you today! Check out the gloriously colorful cover of my big summer book, Secrets of the Tulip Sisters. Isn’t it beautiful?! I’m going to send you another email next week with a very exciting gift-with-purchase preorder promotion, so be on the lookout for that.
HAPPILY INC GIRLFRIEND GETAWAY
I hope you can make it to the Happily Inc Girlfriend Getaway on September 30 in Fort Worth. Readers are coming in from all over the country. It’s going to be an amazing, fun day. In January, I promised to share a few details in the coming months about the fun things we have planned.
