This week, I'm sort of celebrating:
1) The dentist finished the root canal (maybe), and on Sunday I go back for him to start the crown procedure (I think). Not really sure why it's taking so many trips and costing more than I thought. I think the lack of clarity is due to him explaining things to me while I'm on pain meds...
2) I've succeeded in getting my rights to SOUL CUTTER back from the publisher. (yay!) It's now no longer on vendor sites and cannot be purchased. (yay?) Due to legal issues/contracts, I can't put it back out until September. (I think) But when I do, it'll have an awesome new cover and be less expensive than it was before! (definite YAY for that!)
3) The U.S. presidential campaigns. Seriously -- what is up with those? It's like watching a terrible car crash in slow motion.
The one thing I'm sure I'm celebrating is Beverly Stowe McClure's new book!
No Love in the Garden of Eden...
Eden Rose has learned to deal with her mother’s criticism that she can do nothing right. What she can’t deal with are the arguments between her parents. To escape their angry words, she finds refuge in an old abandoned house. She always returns home, hoping her mother will love her one day, even though Eden’s not sure what the word love means.
Three other teens with problems also hang out at the Old House. Meeting Murphy, Toby, and Josh changes Eden’s world, and she begins to have faith in herself. Perhaps she can do something right, after all.
Thanks to the boys, she begins to understand the meaning of love. But will it be enough to save her broken home life?

Put the book on your Goodreads "I Want To Read" list.
Most days, you'll find Beverly at her computer writing stories young voices whisper in her ear. When she's not writing, she plays the piano. Her cats don't appreciate good music and run and hide when she tickles the ivories. She's sometimes called the "bug lady." She's not telling why.
