Book Signings

November 11th, 2012, I'll be presenting the Red Cross Signature Quilt to the Dodge County Historical Society at 3:30 pm in Mantorville, MN, as part of their Veterans' Day festivities. I'll be signing copies of A Bride Sews with Love in Needles, CA at that time. Please come out and honor our veterans, see the quilts (the original and the one made to honor the Dodge County WW1 Veterans) and see the museum.

I'll be signing books at Christian Book & Gift Shop in Rochester, MN,
Saturday, December 1st, 2012, from 1-3 pm. I'll have A Bride Sews With Love in Needles, CA & Sagebrush Knights there, as well as A Log Cabin Christmas and Stars in Her Eyes. Come on out and say hello, and get an early jump on your Christmas shopping! :)


  1. I look forward to having Rochester shake with laughter in October when Mary comes to town!

  2. Erica, I think your story, A Bride For Bear would be a great Hallmark movie! The characters are wonderful, the setting a slice of Americana and the action, conflict and resolution makes it one of the best stories ever!
