To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. 

This is to have succeeded.

–Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am so happy to be celebrating the success of a friend.  She has certainly succeeded by Emerson’s standards — and tomorrow my shimmy sister, Debra Parmley, releases her fourth book, Trapping the ButterflyThis one is set in the 1920s in one of my favorite weekend getaways: Hot Springs, Arkansas. I cannot wait to read it!

Last night she had a radio interview about the book, which you can listen to HERE.

You can watch the book trailer from her third novel, Aboard the Wishing Star, below:

And be sure to check out her blog!  She does a fun series of interviews called “Cover Model Corner” with those hunky men of romance novels.

Just in case you missed the other book trailer I posted (I love these things), you can find it HERE.

Yay Debra! You’re awesome. 🙂
