Imitating Mary, Marian Spirituality, Mary, Blessed Virgin Mary, Blessed Mother, Mary of Nazareth

After an entire day of having both my business email AND website down, I finally can share with you the surprise I found on my doorstep this morning – the first batch of my Imitating Mary author copies!! 

You know what that means, don’t you? It means that the official release date is close at hand – likely sooner than the April 22 date originally anticipated! And, that means that you can get your copy sooner!

I’m truly delighted with the book. I like the look and feel of it, and I especially like the way Ave Maria Press has put the final polish on the manuscript and laid out the book.

I’m grateful to my editor, Kristi McDonald, and the entire staff at Ave Maria Press for their hard, excellent, work and dedication to this project. I’m also grateful to family (especially Fenelon Clan), friends, and colleagues who have so lovingly and prayerfully supported me and offered their practical help along the way. You all know who you are. Thank you!

I’m humbled to have such favorable endorsements from Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Mary DeTurris Poust, Sarah Reinhard, Rev. James Kubicki, S.J., Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle, and Woodeene Koenig Bricker. I’d hoped for a politely nice blurb from each, and what I received was praise beyond my expectation. Thank you!

Even with the email-website snafu, this has been a blessed day. I can’t wait for the book to be released to the public and to receive your comments and impressions as you read it.

Can’t wait to get the copies in our store. Saw it again in the AMP catalog today and thought, “what a wonderful cover”. Congrats!
