Black Expressions calls OMAH "delicious"!

The Black Expressions Book Club has Orange Mint and Honey on their web site as one of the "Coming Soon!" selections. Here's the club review:

When Shay Dixon was growing up, her mother Nona was an alcoholic mess. She was either drunk or hung-over, and her string of low-life boyfriends weren’t any better. But after burning through graduate school and depleting her meager savings, Shay decides it’s time to reconnect with the mother she’s all but written off. Before she knows it, Shay’s on the next flight out. But nothing could prepare her for the homecoming she receives. Her mother hasn’t just given up booze, she’s become a new person with a positive outlook, a love for gardening, and an amazing new toddler named Sunny. A heartwarming story that shows why life tastes better when the bitter is followed by the sweet, Orange Mint and Honey is a delicious treat.

Now that's what I'm talking about!!

Congratulations. It must be so exciting to be counting down the days. I hope they fly by quickly for you (unlike the month before Christmas when you're little).

Sherry, You'd think I'd keep a scrapbook, but I never have. I've got clippings in files and drawers and I guess that's plenty. :)

Shauna, It does feel a little like waiting for Christmas! Thanks!

Clippings in files and drawers?! Well I suppose that's better than not keeping them at all...I love it when great things are happening to well deserving people!!
