November 2009

Twelve days after Beth Hoffman’s first novel was published in 2010, she became a New York Times bestselling author with foreign rights selling to prestigious publishers in Italy, Germany, France, Poland, Norway, Hungary, Indonesia, Korea, Israel, and the United Kingdom.

Following an extensive national tour, Beth returned home to Kentucky and the solace of her writing studio. Drawing from vivid memories of childhood on her grandparents’ farm and her love of animals, nature, and antiques, a surprising story quickly took form. When asked about her second novel, which is titled Looking for Me, Beth says: “This book encompasses my deepest passions—it’s the story that woke me in the night and demanded to be told.”

Beth Hi Mai,

Thanks so much for writing me. I'm delighted that you enjoyed CeeCee's story and really appreciate your kind words. I loved writing the book and was sad when I typed THE END.

I hope you'll like my new novel too. The title is "Looking For Me" and it's coming out sometime in late 2013.

Mai Adelaide Thank you for becoming my friend:)

I wrote this some place else, but don't know if it got posted.. I just finished reading Saving CeeCee Honeycutt and felt like I had to tell you how much I loved it and how sad I feel now that I've finished it. It's like saying goodbye to some very dear friends. I couldn't stop dog-earing the pages to remember all the beautiful and wise words.
The book is now one of my absolute favourite books and I'm sure it will be one of those special ones that stays close to my heart. It also had the most beautiful cover ever!

I've reccommended it to my mom and even though it's not really her favourite genre, she's promised she'll give it a go since I loved it so much.

I'm really looking foreward to reading your next novel and please don't stop writing:)
