Local Hallmark store carrying my book!

Posted on Jul 21, 2017 by in Puzzles | 9 comments

Well, totally the most exciting of exciting news. I got a call yesterday that Hallmark in Hazel Dell will carry my book. At least they are giving it a try. Very exciting, exciting news.

And just to keep the fever pitch of excitement moving I am hoping to have a booth at our Clark County Fair this year. Last year there were over 280,000 attendee’s so if all goes well I will have a lot of exposure for my book. Don’t have the final approval yet – but looks favorable. If I do get accepted I only have 13 days to get all my ducks in formation. Yikes.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

P.S. If you want to take a look at the book – it will be available early next week. Exploring Vancouver USA


  1. Thrilled for you!

    • Thanks Betty! I am thrilled too. Obviously πŸ™‚

  2. Happy to see you are writing and publishing again. I followed you for years when you wrote your wonderful books while living with the Sisters.
    Welcome back Patricia. I hope you are happy.!

    • Hi Dora – Thanks so much for staying connected through the many changes. I actually am very happy. Every day is blessed and beautiful.

  3. Fabulous, so happy for you, such exciting news. I would like to order a few of the books. Should I contact Hallmark or you directly? Please let me know.
    Have a fabulous weekend Patricia. Again, so happy and thrilled and excited for you. Cheers !!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

    • HI Cathy, Oh that would be great. I just called Hallmark to see if they could ship them – and because it is just one item in one store the clerk wasn’t sure if they could do that or not. The buyer will be in the store on Monday – so – I will check with her then and get back to you.

      Otherwise I can certainly send you some – but it looks better for sales if they go through a retail outlet. πŸ™‚

      • Wonderful, let me know. Have a great weekend Patricia.

  4. That is great news. So excited for you. Hallmark is a quality name, so hopefully your book will sell to the people that go into Hallmark stores to brose.

  5. Thanks Joan. Well, this is just a first step. The book is just in the one Hallmark store for now – but they are pretty particular as to what they carry so I feel it is a great first step. Hopefully I can get it into other local Hallmark and gift stores as well!
