I’ve Been Named Author of the Year!

Robin Johns Grant named 2014 Author of the Year by the Georgia Association of College Stores.
I’m the 2014 Author of the Year!

I was so thrilled and honored to be named 2014 Author of the Year by the Georgia Association of College Stores at their annual meeting at Callaway Gardens (Georgia) this past week.

Robin Johns Grant speaking at 2014 Author of the Year Luncheon, Georgia Association of College Stores.

They were also brave enough to let me speak to the attendees about writing and publishing–and about ME, of course! I was a little nervous about speaking to a gathering of college professionals but was told they like to have fun, too. So I talked about rejection. I mean, what’s more fun than other people’s pain, right? I talked about some of the weird things that have happened to me over the years (boy, have I amassed some stories!) and also read some snippets from rejections received by now-famous authors. They’re collected in a nifty little book called Rotten Reviews and Rejections. (Example: We’re sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just don’t know how to use the English language.”)

And then I had a fabulously fun book signing.

This was also a wonderful event for me because it coincided with hubby Dave’s birthday, so we spent some extra time at Callaway Gardens celebrating that.  The weather couldn’t have been better, so we did lots of walking along the lakes and through the woodsy paths and enjoying the sunshine.

Summer’s Winter is a love story wrapped in a mystery, about a preacher's daughter named Jeanine and her obsession with movie star Jamie. At the age of ten, Jeanine believed that God Himself whispered to her in a dark movie theater and promised that the young star would someday be a part of her life. So began an eleven-year test of faith as Jeanine waited for her knight to arrive and rescue her from boring middle Georgia. And then, just as she’s graduating college and about to settle into the dreary nine-to-five life that stretches ahead of her, Jamie bursts into her life in an amazing way. He even seems to be falling for her, just as she’d dreamed. Trouble is, loving Jamie is nothing like she expected. Instead of carrying her away on a white charger, he’s hiding out in Georgia following the suspicious death of his former girlfriend. Jeanine longs to prove his innocence and get at the truth. Unless she can, Jamie’s dark secrets may shatter her faith—and her life.
