Have I mentioned that Emma, the heroine in RETURN TO AUDUBON SPRINGS, is a children’s book author? Emma’s books are available in print as well as every eBook variety. Lucky, right? Here is a snapshot of her walking into a bookstore to find her own books on display.
Bells announced her arrival when she pushed the door open to the bookstore. She drifted to the unmistakable children’s section adorned with an area carpet comprised of big block letters and a small red table covered with teddy bears and a display of children’s books. A stand with flyers announced a book reading to take place during the Annual Art and Flower Show this weekend. The usual fan favorite book series were on display—Harry Potter, Fancy Nancy, Henry and Mudge, and her own Anderria Falls. It still gave her a thrill to walk into a bookstore and see her work in print. She picked up the first book in the series, Key of Hope, and studied the cover. She knew every tiny aspect of this illustration by heart. She’d driven the graphic designer insane in her effort to get it right.
Running her fingers over the embossed illustration, Emma recalled the first time she held the actual book in her hand just a few short months after Elana was born. She felt a similar feeling of love for the book as she did for her child. In many ways, it was her baby as well. She’d been afraid to share it with the world, yet she needed to let it go. The publication of her first book and its meteoric success gave her a tiny taste of freedom she’d never experienced before. These books symbolized the potential to become her own woman one day as opposed to a member of the Grant family.
When I first wrote that scene, the idea of having a book published whether in print or otherwise seemed very far off. It is interesting for me as a writer to find this moment – a snapshot in the life of my heroine – that reflects a dream of my own.
