My latest book has hit the shelves! Not quite literally since I’m still working out issues with my paperback, but the eBooks are available at a special discounted price until about January 31st. Pick up a copy and enjoy!
About the Book
Five desperate young women…
Katie, Joanna, Eve, Evangeline, and Adelaide meet on a stagecoach on their way to Cheyenne, Wyoming as mail order brides. As they talk to each other, Katie and Adelaide become suspicious. Are they correct to be suspicious or are they overreacting?
I’m trying something new. I have a release tour coming up for Savior, Like a Shepherd and I’m allowing bloggers and those on Social Media to join in! I’d love for you to join the tour and help promote my latest book. Details and sign-up form are here or below.
I’m looking for people to read and review one or two of my books. The sooner after publication that you post the review, the better, but I understand that you may not have a lot of time. All you have to do is sign up here or with the form below (same thing, just one is a link and the other is embedded in case the embedded one doesn’t work).
An author friend of mine has a new book available and he gave me the chance to be part of his release tour. Not only that, but he actually lives in the same state as I do!! The beautiful, snowy Wisconsin. I have a review of the book later in the post, but first, here’s a little bit about the book and the author.
About the Book
Phil Brennan is back, looking for a stolen painting and a missing girl.
Smack in the center of it is a rivalry between two men.
One of them is nothing like Phil’s father.
Nothing at all.
Once again, the mystery is a sidebar to what’s going on in Phil’s life.

This is the time of year when people make New Year’s Resolutions. Some of them are realistic and some aren’t. Some you can keep for a couple months, some for a day or two. Some are for some really weird things. But have you ever made a resolution to read a certain number of books the next year?
I can see you now. You’re jaw on the floor, a look of shock on your face. “A resolution to read books? Why would you do that?” you ask. “I already know I’ll read books, so why make goals and resolutions for that?”
I am so glad you asked! There are a few reasons I can think of now, but if you know of more, feel free to leave a comment with those reasons.
