Vacations and books




 Last night I arrived home after a weeklong vacation with the family to find copies of Almost Amish waiting for me! Vacation... books... it doesn't get any better than that!

Nice coming home present! I can't wait to read it. Are you going to be doing any book signings, jetting around the country, and all that other author stuff? See you soon.

Kathryn Cushman said...

Thanks Darla. I hope you enjoy it!
I am jetting off to Tennessee for my hometown book launch in a couple of weeks. Not many bookstores left in Santa Barbara for signings :-(

This sounds like such a fun book to read. But coming home to books is awesome no matter where you come home from.

loved the excerpt! it stopped at exactly the right place - I _so_ want to turn the page and see what happens next!

I live near Amish Country in Ohio and love to visit...it's nice to fantasize about the Plain life but I am sure 1 day without TV would break me! Also, I loved old reality shows like "Frontier House"...this seems like the perfect mashup of both genres! Can't wait to read it.

What a splendid idea for a story. I came across this right after a conversation with my wife who sounds remarkably like the heroine in this tale. Can't wait to tell her about it.

I would love to win a copy of this book. It sounds terrific. The Amish way of life sounds so interesting to me except for the lack of technology of course.

Congrats on the release Kathryn! I look forward to reading it. I wish I was more like Martha Stewart in some ways, especially gardening! Hope you have a great 4th of July!

I came here from Shelf Awareness, but I'm not sure if it's too late to enter for the chance to win a copy of Almost Amish. It looks really interesting and like something that I would enjoy! I am definitely a Type C parent -- I will help if necessary, but I figure I do enough things for them outside of the school so I hate to get roped into book fairs and field trips on top of everything else!
