My Dear Friend,

Last month, my twenty-first novel, Every Breath, was released and since then I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of kind words and messages from readers. Thanks to you and them, Every Breath debuted as the #1 book on the New York Times Bestsellers list! I am grateful for everyone that embraced the book and for each fan that has shared how much they enjoyed it with their friends and family. 

It was also a special treat to have so many people come out to see me while I was traveling for the book’s tour. I continue to look over the pictures from events and always appreciate the opportunity to visit and talk with readers. Thank you to those that attended the events and the hard working folks that put it all together.

Last, I’ve mentioned previously that some of my inspiration for Every Breath came from a secluded North Carolina beach mailbox known as “Kindred Spirit” and, in celebration of the book’s release, my publisher is generously sponsoring a digital mailbox to try to bring some of Kindred Spirit’s magic online. I’d like to shine a light on the fans that have shared their own writing and stories at DearEveryBreath.com. Their letters, ranging from inspiring to humorous to heartbreaking, help remind us all of the power of love along with its challenges, its risks, and most of all, its rewards. If you haven’t visited the digital mailbox website yet, I hope you will find the time to do so soon and that it warms your heart the way it has mine.

Wishing you a warm and happy holiday,
