L. Marie invited me to visit her blog “home” today. I met Linda Marie via Jill Weatherholt’s blog. That’s how the blog-o-sphere works: old friends connecting to new ones!
An MFA graduate of the Vermont College of Fine Arts, L. Marie excels at writing Middle Grade and Young Adult fantasy. To charm her blog readers, she adorns dolls, of both human and animal variety, with her knitted and crocheted creations.
This week L. Marie will share
- Fun facts about me
- Reading/Writing preferences
- Launch Party (Drop-In) photos
Here is a photo from the launch to get you started:

Note: I will be on tour with my book until the end of September. Connection to blog friends and other social media will be sporadic. Thanks for understanding!
Good morning, Marian! Good luck with your book tour and travels!
Thanks, Merril. My daughter just left with instructions on minding my plants. It will be good to get away. I appreciate your good wishes!
I enjoyed your interview with L. Marian, Marian. The photos from your launch were wonderful. I’m so happy it was a success!
Yes, the launch was wonderful. I had an iMovie to include, but someone it didn’t post well. Maybe another time. Thanks, Jill!
Yay!! So blessed to have you on the blog! 😄
The joy is all mine – thanks for hosting me today, L. Marie!
I’m looking forward to reading L. Marie’s blog post about you. It’s interesting how we all find each other in our little corner of the internet. Meant to be. And *yay* about your book launch. Great job.
Thanks, Ally. I replied on L. Marie’s blog before I saw this! 🙂
Great photo. Great launch. Great example of blogging friendships new and old.
You SAID it, Pam. Thanks for the observation and compliment! 🙂
I am so very happy for you, Marian! All the best with the tour! 👍
Thank you SO much, Fatima!
A great interview. Left a message over there. Have fun promoting your book.
You can experience my book signings vicariously as an author yourself who’s engaged in several of your own. Glorious! After years of being inwardly focused, I know I will savor meeting my readers. I got a taste of it Saturday during the launch. 🙂
Beautiful photo! Working together has shaped your marriage and your vocation. That is not a small feat! Will miss your blog, but understand totally! Enjoy the tour!
I appreciate the blessings. And, yes, much has been accomplished in our partnership. Without support from my mate, the marketing part of the journey would be especially difficult. Thank you, Elfrieda!
Today I’m being very lazy. Times have been busy. Enjoy your busy time touring. I hope you have many who come to hear and see or meet you. And then enjoy the lazy!!
I was just thinking how I’ll enjoy replacing busy with lazy!
You are very intuitive, Melodie!
What will perk me up is seeing cousins and meeting long-lost Mennonite friends and new faces.
Fab interview Marian. I enjoyed the photos too. You are rocking this promo like a shero! 🙂
I had good mentors, is all I can say.
About “shero” – I have to assume the word is the feminine form of “hero. Otherwise, I’m clueless – ha! Thanks, Debby!
Great assumption. 🙂
Great interview, Marian ..You look amazing,so happy and fulfilled…Congrats on the book and the tour..Popping over now to read the interview which I am sure is fabulous…Enjoy! 🙂 x
It’s so good to hear from you, Carol. Thanks for reading and commenting here – and there! 🙂
How exciting – headed over there now!
Thank you, Barbara!
Marian — I’m late to the party because we’ve been traveling. I’m SOOOOOO EXCITED for YOU!
I’m late to responding here. Why? I’m traveling . . . my book tour to Pennsylvania! Exhausting but exhilarating too!
Thanks for taking the time to visit here, Laurie!
I’m thrilled for you🎈
Ii know you are and you of all people know exactlywhat this is like – thrilling and at times exhausting! 😀
I have left message on Linda Marie’s blog . Loved the interview. Really looking forward to reading the book . Good luck with your endeavours my sweet one .
Cherry, thank you for stopping by here. Thanks for the good wishes, my dear! Now I’ll check in with Linda Marie again.
Such a lovely shot of you! (And hubby?)
Lady Fi, my husband was with me at the book signing and now the book tour. He did all the original artwork for the book, including restoring the photographs. Now he is chauffeuring me all around Pennsylvania from our home in Florida, more than 800 miles away. He is a prince! Thanks for asking. 🙂
You go, girl!!!
I’m happy to have you in my cheering section. I’m touring now with the book, so expect me to be “out of pocket” for a while but back chatting with friends like you very soon. Thanks, Liesbet! 🙂
Good luck with your book and the tour! What a great topic.
And bless you too with all of your book endeavors too, Jacqui! Thanks for stopping in today. 🙂
