I hope you have all been enjoying the blog tour. I know I have. If you have missed any of the posts, click here to check them out. Even though I have enjoyed every post on the tour, I’m most excited about this one. There are a couple of reasons for this.
1. I finally accomplished the impossible (for me)! I wrote a complete story in less than 20,000 words! And then I did it two more times!
2. I finally get to show you the lovely covers I have for the Hymns of the West Novellas and announce when the first one will be published!
First of all, you should know that these novellas can be read without reading any of my other books or even without reading each novella. Now, some of you are probably wondering where the ideas came from and why they are called “Hymns of the West Novellas.”
It all started while I was writing Amazing Grace. There was a very minor character in there who has one scene. He interacts with his friend, Rhoda and then they disappear from the fictional world. That scene was super fun to write and I just couldn’t leave Cole and Rhoda with that tiny bit of a story. I needed to know the background for how they got to that point. So I wrote, I Love Thee.
Mom and Dad dead STOP Please come STOP Gage
Confirmed bachelor, Cole Baxter, finds himself raising his sister’s four young children. After one week of leaving his ranch in the hands of his foreman to take care of the grieving, needy children, he has to admit the task is beyond him and he needs help.

Approximately 18,000 words.
