Some brief overview of this book

There are all the usual ways, of course, but here’s how Meg Remington did it.

My teenage daughter, Lindsey, had the nerve to place a personal ad on my behalf – Wanted: Perfect Partner. Worse, Steve Conlan, who answered the ad, was perfect, according to her.

Did a teenage matchmaker get it right? You decide!

Biography

Publishing did not come easy to self-described creative speller Debbie Macomber. When Macomber decided to follow her dreams of becoming a bestselling novelist, she had a lot of obstacles in her path. For starters, Macomber is dyslexic. On top of this, she had only a high school degree, four young children at home, and absolutely no connections in the publishing world. If theres one thing you can say about Debbie Macomber, however, it is that she does not give up. She rented a typewriter and started writing, determined to break into the world of romance fiction. The years went on and the rejection letters piled up. Her family was living on a shoestring budget, and Debbie was beginning to think that her dreams of being a novelist might never be fulfilled. She began writing for magazines to earn some extra money, and she eventually saved up enough to attend a romance writers conference with three hundred other aspiring novelists. The organizers of the conference picked ten manuscripts to review in a group critique session. Debbie was thrilled to learn that her manuscript would be one of the novels discussed. Her excitement quickly faded when an editor from Harlequin tore her manuscript to pieces in front of the crowded room, evoking peals of laughter from the assembled writers. Afterwards, Macomber approached the editor and asked her what she could do to improve her novel. Throw it away, the editor suggested. Many writers would have given up right then and there, but not Macomber. The deeply religious Macomber took a lesson from Job and gathered strength from adversity. She returned home and mailed one last manuscript to Silhouette, a publisher of romance novels. It cost $10 to mail it off, Macomber told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in 2000. My husband was out of work at this time, in Alaska, trying to find a job. The children and I were living on his $250-a-week unemployment, and I cant tell you what $10 was to us at that time. It turned out to be the best $10 Macomber ever spent. In 1984, Silhouette published her novel, Heartsong. (Incidentally, although Heartsong was Macombers first sale, she actually published another book, Starlight, before Heartsong went to print.) Heartsong went on to become the first romance novel to ever be reviewed in Publishers Weekly, and Macomber was finally on her way. Today, Macomber is one of the most widely read authors in America. A regular on the New York Times bestseller charts, she is best known for her Cedar Cove novels, a heartwarming story sequence set in a small town in Washington state, and for her Knitting Books series, featuring a group of women who patronize a Seattle yarn store. In addition, her backlist of early romances, including several contemporary Westerns, has been reissued with great success. Macomber has made a successful transition from conventional romance to the somewhat more flexible genre known as womens fiction. I was at a point in my life where I found it difficult to identify with a 25-year-old heroine, Macomber said in an interview with ContemporaryRomanceWriters.com. I found that I wanted to write more about the friendships women share with each other. To judge from her avid, ever-increasing fan base, Debbies readers heartily approve.

Good To Know

Some outtakes from our interview with Macomber: Im dyslexic, although they didnt have a word for it when I was in grade school. The teachers said I had word blindness. Ive always been a creative speller and never achieved good grades in school. I graduated from high school but didnt have the opportunity to attend college, so I did what young women my age did at the time — I married. I was a teenager, and Wayne and I (now married nearly 37 years) had four children in five years. Im a yarnaholic. That means I have more yarn stashed away than any one person could possibly use in three or four lifetimes. Theres something inspiring about yarn that makes me feel I could never have enough. Often Ill go into my yarn room (yes, room!) and just hold skeins of yarn and dream about projects. Its a comforting thing to do. My office walls are covered with autographs of famous writers — its what my children call my ‘dead author wall. I have signatures from Mark Twain, Earnest Hemingway, Jack London, Harriett Beecher Stowe, Pearl Buck, Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, Alfred, Lord Tennyson, to name a few. Im morning person, and rip into the day with a half-mile swim (FYI: a half mile is a whole lot farther in the water than it is on land) at the local pool before I head into the office, arriving before eight. It takes me until nine or ten to read through all of the guest book entries from my web site and the mail before I go upstairs to the turret where I do my writing. Yes, I write in a turret — is that romantic, or what? I started blogging last September and really enjoy sharing bits and pieces of my life with my readers. Once Im home for the day, I cook dinner, trying out new recipes. Along with cooking, I also enjoy eating, especially when the meal is accompanied by a glass of good wine. Wayne and I take particular pleasure in sampling eastern Washington State wines (since we were both born and raised in that part of the state).
