Missing in Action

By Tamra Norton

So sorry I've been missing in action for the past month...or so. The holidays were wonderfully chaotic at our house. My three oldest are in college (two away from home) so with the gang all home, plus friends in and out, it was truly insane and spectacular.

Then, just as my college crowd was heading back to school, my latest book, MAKE ME A HOME, was released and I've been marketing like a mad woman. With the assistance of Wonderful Melanee at my publisher's office, I've sent out over a dozen review copies that were requested by magazines, newspapers, and support organizations associated with the military. You see, my story is about a 12-year-old girl dealing with the year-long deployment of her soldier father. I like to describe it as a story about the true meaning of family, friends, heroes and home. So far I've had great feedback from many associated with the military. I'm very excited to see what this next month or so brings.

Happy 2008!

I am glad we are back in touch again too...
We are looking forward to our new blog...It will be fun to keep in touch with everyone.
It was funny to find out that Jessica and your son met one another at college but did not even realize that our families are friends...small world in the church!!!

Hooray for you. It's so exciting. I'm sure you'll be busy for the next few months. Let me know when you'll be in San Antonio. The LDS bookstore has moved near the temple and they'll have a grand re-opening soon. I'm not sure how much longer we'll be here, though. We're moving to Corpus as soon as we can sell our house.
