I’m rejoicing because on Friday, I turned in my manuscript for the final Chicory Inn Novel, Home at Last! I also got to see the final cover for the series, and I’m so pleased! I’ve really liked the covers from the beginning, but seeing the progression from day to night with the covers all lined up, it feels just short of brilliant to me. 🙂
The final book feels aptly titled: HOME AT LAST! I must admit that I wrote “the end” on this series with a few tears! These characters have been living with me almost 24/7 for the last 3.5 years and I’ve grown to love them dearly!
Here are the release dates for the five books in the series:
I’m also giving you the first peek at my full cast of characters. These are the images I used to give the characters in my head “flesh and bones.” I’m not going to label them because there will be spoilers if I do! But if you’ve read the first three books in the series, I bet you’ll be able to guess who’s who. Hint: They are somewhat in chronological order of the age of the siblings in the book. And that’s all I’m sayin’! 🙂
GIVEAWAY: One winner who comments below will win copies of the first three books in the series! To enter, post a comment below with the answer to one or more of these questions: Do you like novel series or prefer stand-alone novels? Do you prefer the typical 3-book series or would you rather have 4 or more books? Do you read a series as the books release, or wait until they are all available? Any other opinions you’d like to share about novel series? I’ll choose a winner at random tomorrow night (and so sorry, but only U.S. residents are eligible to win. But anyone can comment!)
