The holiday season is in full swing, and Toni is making the most of it. On December 3rd, she was part of a multi-author holiday signing at the Barnes & Noble in West Chester, Ohio, along with Lori Foster. Toni signed stacks of books, and there should still be some left in the store if anyone in the area is looking for a signed copy (Toni's books make great stocking stuffers!). For other stores that might still have signed copies available from the Fall...in Love book tour, check out Toni's events page. After the signing, Toni made it out to the Cincinnati Zoo's Festival of Lights (pictured below). Between enjoying the light displays, animals, and general atmosphere, Toni managed to snap a picture of the reindeer Sophie saw in Holly Lane. You can keep up with Toni's other winter adventures on her Facebook page.
Of course, the biggest adventure of the season has been having her first Christmas book! Holly Lane released October 25th and has already gone back for a second printing. Christmas has always been a special holiday for Toni, and she's thrilled to be able to share some of her favorite holiday traditions along with another heartwarming Destiny tale. Holly Lane contains a Christmas cookie recipe that has been in her family for generations, and this and other recipes from the Destiny series are also available on Toni's web site. Her site has also recently been updated with all-new lists of the songs used in her books - including some of her holiday favorites from Holly Lane - as playlists from Amazon.
2011 has been a banner year for Toni and the Destiny series - a USA Today review, Doubleday Bookclub feature, National Reader's Choice Award, FIRST Magazine mention, and book tour, to name just a few of the highlights - so it's hard to believe it's already drawing to a close. But 2012 is set to bring more great things, including the release of Destiny book five, Willow Springs (July), which will bring long-awaited romance into Amy's life.
Toni sends huge thanks to her readers for all their support this year and sends all best wishes to everyone for a delightful holiday season and a wonderful new year!
