I'm thrilled that my book, THE CHRISTMAS KITE, is being re-issued from Steeple Hill in mass market size. It was published in 2003 in trade book but since it is more expensive, I'm excited to know that my readers can purchase the book at a lower cost and even use it for Christmas gifts. This is my novel that was discovered by Larry Levinson, Emmy winning producer, and optioned for a Hallmark TV movie. The option ran out so no movie was made, but I am honored that they thought my book worthy to invest in as a possible film. I hope you enjoy viewing this preview of the book to be in stores on September 28 -- wherever books are sold.

Gail -- I noticed that your Christmas Kite was being reissued. How wonderful -- and you're right, it's a perfect Christmas gift. I remembered it had been optioned, but had forgotten it was for a Hallmark special. I agree that was quite an honor even if it wasn't made (so many things happen in the movie business).

Thanks, Janet. I tried not to get excited about the movie possibility and was just grateful that they thought the book worthy of a movie. They found the book and asked for the option. I didn't seek it -- so that was a gift.
