Today we welcome Marie Meyer to Romancing the Book. After I read the blurb for Across the Distance, I knew we had to learn what Marie’s Top 5 Days She’ll Always Remember. But before we get to her list, let’s check out the blurb:
There’s a drawer I never open. It holds a picture I never look at. It reminds me of a day I hate to remember, but I’ll never forget.
I’d give anything to be like the other girls on campus. Going to parties, flirting with boys, planning for a future. But that’s not me. And hasn’t been since the day my parents died. The only thing that got me through was Griffin. Even though I didn’t have my family, I always had him. Only, now I’m not so sure I do.
It’s not just the eleven hundred miles separating us now that I’m at college. Or his band finally taking off, and all the gigs and girls suddenly demanding his time. It’s as if everything is different-the way we talk, the way we text . . . the way he looks at me and the way those looks make me feel.
Griffin has been the only good thing in my life since that horrific day. But I can feel our friendship slipping away-and I’m terrified of what will be left in its place . . .
- My Wedding Day- This was the day I said “I do.” to my best friend. In fifteen years of marriage, we’ve always had each other’s backs. He’s my biggest supporter and I couldn’t do what I do without him!
- The Day I Got “The Call”- It was Valentine’s Day 2014 when Louise Fury emailed me wanting to set up a time to call. Thus began this wonderfully awesome journey I’m on!
- The day my agent told me Across the Distance sold! – I was with my family at a frozen yogurt shop, grinning ear to ear as I listened to Louise deliver the fantastic news!
- May 5, 2015, the day I became a published author! – Something I dreamed about for a very long time became real on this day!
- My Children’s Birthdays- July 30, 2002, I was given a gift of a baby girl. In twelve years, she has taught me more about love than anyone else ever has. Then on September 15, 2006, I was gifted with another baby girl. She’s vibrant and full of life and has taught me a whole new way to look at the world. My girls are my life.
