Anita Higman on the Harvest Show

September 2, 2009

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.

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 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

Meeting Summerside People at CBE in Dallas

April 4, 2009

I went to the Christian Book Expo in Dallas in March 2009. I spent one day in the exhibit hall visiting all the booths. A lot of fun meeting the people. I had my picture taken with many of my old friends in the publishing world. Then on Sunday, I signed books in the American Christian Fiction Writers booth.

The highlight of Friday was meeting the people of Summerside Press. I knew Rachel and Jason through email and mail. And I’ve known Susan Downs for a long time. Meeting Rolf and Carlton was interesting. I love this company and the products they produce.


Here I am with Jason Rovenstine.


This is Rolf Garborg with Ellie Claire and Summerside Press.


And with Carlton Garborg.


With other Love Finds You authors Anita Higman and Gwen Faulkenberry.


With Susan Downs and Rachel Meisel.


With Tyson and Jeane Wynn of Wynn & Wynn, Publicists for Summerside Press.

God blessed me when He allowed me to become part of the Summerside Press family.
