Remembering Lael by Laura Frantz | Apr 8, 2014 | Uncategorized The Frontiersman’s Daughter is on sale for e-readers! AMAZON, BARNES&NOBLE, CBD Happy reading! 8 Comments Jennifer Zarifeh Major on April 9, 2014 at 6:38 am My birthday is next month, to celebrate, I’d like a Captain Jack party. Complete with favours, like bracelets, trade beads, and buckskins. What? Oh, come ON!!! Fans self. One of my favourite scenes is when Lael shoots a hole in the still. Seriously. And the, umm, swimming scene…because I like…nature. Yeah, thaaaaaaaaaaaat’s it. laurafrantz on April 9, 2014 at 11:59 am LOL Jennifer, and HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY!! I must remember you are a MAY baby ~ somehow it suits you! Your party idea sounds SPLENDID!! I’m chuckling as I write this! Count me in! Only we cannot JUST have the swimming scene but the barn scene, the standing by the water scene, the wedding scene, etc… I’m laughing because just this morning a dear friend of mine asked me to be THE fairy godmother, complete with winged ballgown, at her granddaughter’s 6th birthday party this summer :). Of course I said yes! I get to teach these little girls how to curtsy and hold their teacup and all sorts of feminine things. But now that I think of it, a CJ party might be more down my alley! Love your party favour ideas, especially. Oh my…! Yes, must be because we like nature, lol 😉 p.s. I just realized you said CJ and not RS! I must be losing my mind…or playing favorites!! Jennifer Zarifeh Major on April 9, 2014 at 1:52 pm A fairy godmother?!?!?! AWWW!!All that pink and tulle and WINGS?? We’ll need photos! And yes, I did say CJ!! Messed with your head, didn’t I?? Just keepin ya sharp, blondie! laurafrantz on April 10, 2014 at 9:59 am I knew all that pink tulle and gossamer wings would get you ;)! My first thought was, “Am I not too old to be a fairy godmother?” Then remembered Cinderella’s and thought NOPE! At least I think it was Cinderella or maybe Glenda the Good Witch in some other fairy tale? I am a true blonde so may be getting things mixed up! LOL about keepin’ me sharp. IF anyone can, that would be you, Jennifer!! Georgianne Barnett on April 9, 2014 at 8:28 am Good Morning Laura, So this is the story that started me on my journey with you. One day I was browsing CBD offerings and saw this was 5 star top rated, so I took a chance. And so glad I did! Honestly, the setting was so foreign to me at first, the time period, the Indians, etc, that it took me awhile, but I kept going, wanting to see if Lael would get her HEA. Then by the end I was so intrigued that I had to go on to Morrow and her story, then Roxie…and on and on it goes! Now I just can’t get enough of your unique and wonderful story-telling. I am so happy to be on this continuing adventure with you and looking forward to what the future has for you and all of us!! Bless you Laura, Georgianne laurafrantz on April 9, 2014 at 11:54 am Georgianne – So, so appreciate you telling me this. I always wonder how people come by my books and rarely know. Thank heavens for CBD and that you found Lael there – and the others! Interesting to hear this about the setting, too, as the 18th-century frontier had been pretty unexplored in the CBA till then. It is not known as a popular time period. The sweet spot as they say is the late 19th-century American west. With good reason! But I do see more and more colonial and early American books emerging so the time period is gaining some traction. THANK YOU for taking a chance on a new author and debut (again something that is hard for many readers to do in this day of numerous, expensive books!! You’ve sure made my journey a lot sweeter with your gracious, encouraging spirit. I love seeing you on Pinterest and happily repin most of your pins, lol. But you probably already knew that ;). Thanks for telling me this about you and Lael. You’ve made my day! And I can’t wait to share more books with you in future… Bless you right back, dear Georgianne. Angi G. on April 9, 2014 at 9:25 pm Laura, I saw Lael sitting on a shelf at a Christian bookstore. I think I must’ve walked by her a half dozen times before I finally picked her up and decided that the back blurb sounded very interesting. I believe you are actually the first Colonial times author that I began reading, and so thankful that I did. I can’t wait for more. And in reference to Jennifer’s comment about CJ. I’ll let her have CJ if I can have RS. LOL! Have a grand Thursday! 🙂 laurafrantz on April 10, 2014 at 9:58 am LOL, dear Angi! 🙂 You bring a welcome smile this cold spring morning! SO interesting to me to hear you say where you met Lael. There is something to be said for print editions in bookstores despite the e-reader craze! Love, love that you took a chance on a new author in a rare time period. I’ve actually read reviews which way the colonial period is not a favorite so your willingness means so much. Have a grand Thursday, too, my dear friend!!
