September 26, 2009

by Sandie Bricker

Be Still ... and Let Your Nail Polish DryI wanted to let everyone know that Summerside Press has a hot new devotional coming out in October.  🙂  Ok, so I wrote it … along with Andrea Boeshaar, Debby Mayne and Loree Lough. We’re so proud of Be Still … and Let Your Nail Polish Dry. It’s especially geared toward busy women on-the-go, and a portion of the proceeds are going to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Being a five-year survivor of stage 3 ovarian cancer, I’m particularly touched by our connection to OCRF. And I hope you’ll all support us by buying a copy for yourself, and a copy for your best girlfriend! And please feel free to TALK IT UP with everyone you know. 

Book trailer:

We also have a blog dedicated to the book at and I hope you’ll feel free to stop by now and then. All four authors contribute to the blog, and topics run the gamut of women’s issues from health and wellness to friendships and family to general girl power.

Let us know what you think of the devo! And special thanks to Summerside Press and Connie Troyer for the dedication to making Be Still into something really special and very unique!

Anita Higman on the Harvest Show

Harvest Show Picture

Recently I went to South Bend, Indiana and was interviewed on The Harvest Show. I couldn’t have had a better time. The staff was gracious and kind, giving me a tour of the facilities and making me feel welcome, and the hosts, Kelly and Stefan offered poignant as well entertaining questions. Since the Harvest Show is live television with eight million regular viewers it was impossible not to be a little nervous. But I still had a wonderful time. I talked about my beginnings as a writer, Summerside Press, Love Finds You in Humble Texas, God’s way of redeeming impossible situations, and why you should never give up on your dreams. To see the interview please click on I’d love to know what you think. I’m at

Lifeway Book Signing in Bellevue

May 17, 2009

Lifeway Store Signing

Yesterday I took part in the National Fiction Day celebrated by the chain of Lifeway book stores. I traveled eight hours round trip to Bellevue, WA and signed books for about 2 1/2 hours. We had a good turn out, especially considering the manager feels that it’s a poor location for walk in traffic. He was quite excited about the number of books sold and signed, and said it was the best one they’ve hosted to date. The store will be relocating in September and he’s asked me to return, as it will be situated in a busy shopping area.

The bottom 2 rows are all Love Finds You titles!

The second picture shows the wonderful display of new releases. As you can see, over half of the titles are Summerside books!

The people at the store were lovely and gracious, and it was a pleasure meeting them and chatting with their customers. I do hope to return again in the future.

Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon

May 16, 2009

I’m tickled that Summerside Press is trusting me with a second title for their wonderful Love Finds You series. “Bridal Veil, Oregon” releases  Feb. 1st, next year, and will be another historical…set in 1902.

Bridal Veil is pretty much a ghost town now, with only a tiny P.O., a church and a handful of homes where a once vibrant sawmill town existed. My story will take place at the turn of the century when logging and milling were at their height.

Here’s a little ‘teaser’ to whet your appetite, and a couple of pictures of the falls and the present day P.O.

Amidst a backdrop of thievery and murder in historic Bridal Veil, Oregon, a teacher is torn between memories of a distant love and the man who could be her future.
Can’t wait to show you the book cover when I get an official copy! I’m loving how this book is shaping up!!   Blessings to you all, Miralee Ferrell
