Forgotten book Friday

Patti Abbott launched the idea for forgotten book Friday a few weeks back. I participated the first week and have not done so again until now. In that first post I did tag three people to name a recommendation of their own. I'm proud to say all three accepted their assignment.

Katrina Kimble's can be found here.

Shauna Sturge's is here.

And Jennifer Archer ran with the assignment and did one here and here.

But guess what. Jennifer is a very talented author in her own right. I'm not sure of the exact number but she has had somewhere in the neighborhood of a dozen books published.
Of those, the Me I used to be is my favorite.
That Was Then

Me, Allyson Cole. Age sixteen. Living in the world of endless summers, of going wherever you wanted. And yes, my parents may have worried that I was riding into trouble — but I was young and in love, and growing up was something I had to do….

And This Is Now

Me, again. Allyson Cole. This time, age fifty-one. I have everything I always wanted — almost. I don't have him…and I don't have me. Now's the time to find what I lost. To do that, I have to hit the road, and find the father of my child. And start a journey I never could have anticipated….

The story is chocked full of great characters and I guarantee you'll feel like you are on that journey with Allyson.

Jennifer also has a new story out the collection More than Words Volumn 4 which can be bought here. She is also one of the nicest ladies you can meet and her perpetual smile is enough to brighten any room. so check out either of these titles or any of her others when you get the chance.

I love the idea of forgotten book Friday. I'm definitely participating next week (assuming I remember which isn't always a given these days).

Jennifer's book sounds fabulous.

Oh, cool! You know, when I first read about the Next series, I meant to check them out. Somehow I forgot, but I'm going to make it a priority next week.

The Me I Used to Be sounds like an excellent book. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Hi Travis,

Thanks for the kind words about me and also about my work! THE ME I USED TO BE is a book that is especially close to my heart. Thanks for recommending it. It truly is a "forgotten book," as in it is difficult to find. But a few new and many used copies are available at online store. Also, great news--the publisher is re-releasing it! The bad new is that it won't be out until Feb. 2010!
