In case you haven't heard, the television series based on Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove books has received the green light. The pilot will air Saturday evening, January 19, 2012, on the Hallmark Channel. The first of seven weekly episodes will start in sometime in early spring.
This is exciting news for Debbie Macomber fans!
In her latest news update to her fans, Debbie writes:
I've lost count of the number of holiday books I've penned during my writer career but enough to be called "The Official Storyteller of Christmas." I not only enjoy writing Christmas stories, I love reading them! For the last few years I've bought as many Christmas novels as I can find, and in the weeks after Thanksgiving take time for myself by the fireplace daily to devour all those books.
|A Shirley, Goodness and Mercy story, this book went on sale October 23rd.|
So, that's like, all the time.
Yup. What can I say?
|This holiday book will be released on November 27th. It includes a reissue of two earlier novels:|
There's Something About Christmas, and Here Comes Trouble

Not bad for a sweet little housewife and mother from the Pacific Northwest. (I love you, Debbie! You are one of my heroes.)
I notice that the Hallmark channel is doing their yearly "Countdown to Christmas" again. The films Mrs. Miracle, Call Me Mrs. Miracle, and Trading Christmas are all on their line-up this year, so there will be plenty of viewing opportunities throughout the holiday season.
In case you think I'm a little early with a Christmas-oriented post... you can just check the count-down clock at the bottom of this blog to see how close we're getting to the actual event. Believe me, we just hit December, so it's A LOT closer than you think!
Hope this year's holiday season is the best ever for all of you!
