I’m Famous!

Okay, well I’m not really famous (at least not yet), but I’m playing famous in a new book that came out last week!  In 2003 a friend of mine, let’s call her Julie, asked me if I’d read a book she had written.  Of course, I said yes, and she gave me and several others her book.  After we read it she wanted our opinion and even had us all get together to talk about it.  A mere 10 years later and she’s a published author – with the book I read those many years ago.  When I received my book last week I was honored to be mentioned in the dedication.  It was so sweet of her.

I haven’t read the book yet (I have a few commitments first) so I’ll tell you a little about Julie.  We met through the social group New Clevelanders and played Couples Euchre once a month.  Julie and her husband Ed were favorites of Jason and mine and we were lucky to call them friends.  Julie and Ed are such a fun couple, always challenging themselves and enjoying life.  I loved being around their spark.  They moved to Texas several years ago and we miss our competitive euchre games and fun evenings together.

You can follow Julie’s blog or follow her on Facebook.  You might see me around there too 🙂

We bought a new computer and nothing is working right 😦  Sorry about the photo quality and cropping.  I’ll come back and fix it when I can get around on this new computer better.  And I started Bloglovin at the same time and am having all kinds of trouble.  I hate change when it makes more work for me!

    That is so cool! I’ve been mentioned in 2 dedications, but it’s not the same as a novel – especially 10 years later. In the 1st one, my wife and her partner wrote a book for the Everything series called The Everything Baby Shower Book, Volume 2. Our wives had to mention our names. In the other one, a friend, Julie Dart, self-published a children’s book called Ellie Stands Up To The Bully. I did a little editing work for her, so she had to mention me too. Congratulations. It’s a great feeling.

    That is so awesome! Way to go, for both of you! And I hear you on changing over computers. It always flips me out, I am so technically challenged.
