Send Me a Sign

I have been super lucky to be only an hour away from The Doylestown Bookshop. Why, you ask? This local bookstore holds book signings for local authors. It was here in September that I attended a book launch party for Jonathan Maberry's latest book Flesh and Bone.

This month, local writer Tiffany Schmidt celebrated the release of her debut novel Send Me a Sign by coming out and hosting a book signing. I first met Tiffany at BEA in June, and again in August at YA Fest in Easton, PA. Although she was at these events, she didn't have a book to share. She was quick to give readers swag that promoted her book, but it wasn't until October 2nd that I could hold the book in my hands. I was really excited to finally read her book after hearing about it for so long and I will tell you that this book was DEFINITELY worth the wait!

Thanks Tiffany for being so sweet and gracious, especially to my daughter who got to attend the signing with me. I wish you luck with your writing:)

Mia is always looking for signs. A sign that she should get serious with her soccer-captain boyfriend. A sign that she’ll get the grades to make it into an Ivy-league school. One sign she didn’t expect to look for was: “Will I survive cancer?” It’s a question her friends would never understand, prompting Mia to keep her illness a secret. The only one who knows is her lifelong best friend, Gyver, who is poised to be so much more. Mia is determined to survive, but when you have so much going your way, there is so much more to lose. From debut author Tiffany Schmidt comes a heart-wrenching and ultimately uplifting story of one girl’s search for signs of life in the face of death.

I absolutely LOVED this story!


  1. Great trailer. Thanks for the rec!

  2. Great trailer. And I LOVE going to stuff like this. UGH. I MISS PA!!! I wasn't far from Doylestown at all when I lived there. Now I'm fourteen hours away, so I don't foresee making any book signings. haha.

  3. Thanks so much for coming to my launch party and saying such sweet things about SEND ME A SIGN. It was so fabulous to see you again and lovely to meet your daughter! <3
