Mother’s Day is coming!

The owner of my local bookstore, Mac’s Backs on Coventry, will be bringing books to be signed to my house soon — and we will, of course, keep proper social distance!

The store has hardcover copies of The Women of the Copper Country in stock and can still ship online orders in time for Mother’s Day. Copies of my other novels might need to be sent directly to you from the distributor, and that may take up to a week.

If you order something of mine that isn’t in stock, I will send you signed a signed bookplate if you ask in the COMMENTS section of your Mac’s Backs order form.

Just FYI: Amazon is making books a low priority these days, so there’s no guarantee you can get what you want in time for Mother’s day.

Which is another good reason to patronize your local independent bookstore! Here’s a link that will let you input your zipcode and find a store to patronize. Times are tough for everyone. My mantra these days is “Do what you can.” Stay home and stay safe!

  1. I just rec’d Children of God via my local bookstore who ordered it from the publisher. Only took a few days, and I get to continue my journey with the characters from The Sparrow. So glad to have great reading during the quarantine and to be able to support local business during a tough time. Thank you~

  2. Was enjoying your new book but had to stop due to eye surgery…hope to finish soon.
    Stay safe. Stay home

  3. Hi Mary – I would love to read The Women of the Copper Country which I will order from my local bookstore, but I was wondering if it would be possible to get a bookplate sent to me please? It’s a bit trickier because I live in New Zealand, but I am happy to pay the postage.
    I’d also like to thank you so much for writing A Thread of Grace, one of my favourite books.

  4. Send me your snail mail address via email to
    Just remind me what you’d like. It may take a while to get to a post office. I’m in the high risk group and unlike NZ, we are nowhere NEAR clearing the virus here. Congratulations on voting in an enviable leader.

  5. Mary, just a question. I bought and read your Copper Women and enjoyed. My wife wants to select for her book club… But they have a paperback only rule. Can you let us know if it will soon be out in paperback?
