Anela’s Oahu ~ In My Mother’s Footsteps.
With complete and utter excitement of the cover reveal of my first book ever to be released, I want to take you on a partial tour of Oahu, Anela style. The heroine of my novella, In My Mother’s Footsteps is Anela Alborn and she takes a two month trip to Hawaii on the island of Oahu.
My family and I have been to Oahu a lot. I’m going to share a few pictures from my trips to Oahu over the past ten years.
These are plumeria trees. This first picture shows a pink and white flower, those are two different trees and actually in my front yard at home. I brought couple of branches from Hawaii with me over the course of my trips and now they’ve grown out of control. But I love them and plant them everywhere and give them away.
Here’s Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck. These pics were taken in 2007 and those are my boys signing their name on the truck. Seriously, the food there is impeccable.
This is the volcano Diamond Head. Our trip from the bottom to the top, the beautiful view, and back down again. It was a hike and a half, but so worth it.
This is Ko’Olina Beach and back when we used to go, it was small. It had just one hotel on it but now it has expanded so much, it’s unrecognizable. I’m so glad we got to experience it before all of the expansions. Anela gets to experience it the way I did.
Well, that’s just some of our travels. I’ll have to find more. I know I have some pics somewhere of Waimea Falls and The Polynesian Cultural Center. Also, swimming with the dolphins and Hanauma Bay.
Stay tuned, June 2nd is our big cover reveal and July 2nd the book will officially be for sale.
I’ve also gotten some really good news today: my book cover for my novel, My Mr. Manny was completed and is just perfect! Exactly what I hoped for but could never imagine.
