A Hundred Weddings, and a Few Missteps

—From Cathy

First, I’m thrilled to announce that my book, A Hundred Weddings, will be released December 1, 2016!

Second, what a trip this has been.

This book had been set for release September 21 and was already set for pre-order on Amazon. Then, on September 8, my publisher suddenly closed doors.

Cue shock, devastation, panic, and finally a mad scramble to find a new publisher.

Now, after a whole bunch of cover designs and redesigns, one professional edit, numerous thorough proofings, and a big group of beta readers, it’s finally happening.  I’m pleased to say I’ve signed on with Possibilities Publishing, a company right here in my own backyard, and welcome the chance to move forward with them.

I even get to keep the first (and so far only) event I had scheduled:

I’ll be reading at George Mason University’s Fall for the Book festival this Friday, September 30, at 2 p.m. If you’re in the area, please stop by the Sandy Spring Bank tent, just outside the Johnson Center. Hoping the weather holds!

I’ll likely have a launch here in Northern Virginia sometime in December. Please stay tuned!

And if you get a chance, please “like” my author Facebook page. You can also follow me on Twitter, @CathyCruise1, and check out my Goodreads page.

Thanks for making this journey with me. Write well, everyone!

  1. Can’t gush enough about how proud I am of Cathy. She not only wrote the novel (a feat in itself) and found a publisher (near miracle every time it happens,) but she also survived a very unsettling publisher switch at the very end. Rock on, Cath!

  2. Thank you, my friend. This writing stuff is an ongoing adventure, huh?

  3. I’m so glad it all worked out in the end, and I’m looking forward to seeing you read on Friday!

    What a nice Christmas gift!

  5. Thanks, Kirsten! Reading was fun. I’ll post about it soon. And yes, I hope readers will consider it for Christmas gifts!
