I knew that C.S. Lewis and I had more in common than our Christianity when he said, "You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." Welcome to a celebration of faith, tea, and the written word. I'm always engaged in a book, and whether it's one I'm reading or one of the inspirational historical romances I write, there's always a cup of tea close by. Join me in a cup as we chat about faith, our favorite books and the exciting places our reading and writing adventures take us.

Big News...and a Giveaway!

It's official!

Photo: I'm thrilled to announce I signed with agent Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency!
I signed the contract. The ink is dry. I'm now represented by agent Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency!

I couldn't be more thrilled. I respect and admire Tamela, and working with her has been a pleasure. I feel very, very blessed.


Head over to Christian Fiction Book Reviews for the chance to win a $300 Kindle shopping spree--yes, that's right, $300. Contest ends September 30.


Today I've got a post on Inkwell Inspirations about my favorite TV shows returning to fall. I want to know: what did you think of how "Castle" ended back in May? What's going on now that magic has returned in "Once Upon a Time?" Hop on over and visit--I want to know what you think!


In other news, my website is coming along! (Click link at the top of this page, or click here.) I've posted articles on Regency weddings, currency, forms of address, a recipe, and a LOT of links to cool sites. More to follow.


Don't forget to enter the giveaway for a DVD of one of my favorites, The Young Victoria, generously offered by Author Keli Gwyn. Just leave a comment with a way to contact you, and you'll be entered. Giveaway limited to the US and Canada only.

Learn more about Keli by reading the previous post. Her debut novel, A Bride Opens Shop in El Dorado, is delightful--with humor, interesting characters, a lively pace, a rich California setting, and meticulous research. I recommend you pick it up!

Woohooo! That's awesome about your contract. :-) I still need to watch Castle, but I'd like to start with Season 1.

Susanne Dietze said...

Hey Jessica! Thanks for the congrats. :)

Yeah, start with Season 1. It's fun to watch the characters evolve and grow. Enjoy!

Susanne Dietze said...

Don't forget...if anyone wants to be entered into the contest for the DVD, make sure to make note of it in the comments and make sure I know how to get in touch with you!

Cheryl Klarich said...

A big cogratulations to you!!! You are one giant step closer to publication!!!

I didn't love how Castle ended... I don't really believe their relationship. Just a bit anti-climactic for me...

Love Once Upon a Time!!

Keli Gwyn said...

Congratulations on signing that contract! I'm looking forward to more good news in the near future. =)

Suzie Johnson said...

Congratulations Susie! I am so happy for you. I love the photo of you signing the contract.

I love Once Upon a Time too! I can't wait for the season to start up again.

I'm glad you could come by!

Susanne Dietze said...

Hi Keli! Thank you, and thanks for offering to giveaway the DVD.

Susanne Dietze said...

Hey Suzie! Thanks! You know what I see when I look at that photo? How plain the wall is behind me. I've been wanting to put up some artwork and just haven't gotten around to it, LOL.
