I need your questions

Question

I need some questions and fast (thus the second post in one day). I have a character interview I want to do for my main character of my soon-to-be-released book, “All the Way My Savior Leads.” Is there anything you would like to ask Henry Salisbury? If you don’t know the story at all, but have a question that could still apply to any character of any Historical Fiction book, feel free to chime in.

You can either comment below, email me, or use the contact form to the left.

Here’s the description of the book if that helps at all:

Caroline and I walked out the back door and went into the barn.
“What are we going to do?” Caroline asked.
“Head out on our own. Saddle Whitey, please.”
Caroline’s mouth gaped open. “They’ll find us.”
“I know.”
Caroline sighed. “What can we do then?”
I shook my head. “We can stick together. Always.”

Tragedy stole everything from him … except her …

Three years ago, an illness orphaned Henry and Caroline Salisbury. The harsh years at the orphanage have forged a strong bond between the pair.

But Henry’s about to age out.

He must choose whether to leave his only family behind in relative safety, or take her with him as he pursues dreams of owning a farm. Henry trusts that God has a plan for him, but little does he know that others have plans for him and his younger sister as well. He will need all his faith to find the right path.

Thank you in advance!

Four book Cover Reveal!

About the Series

Genre: Christian Western Coming of Age

Logline: Through God’s leading, four orphans grow up to be important members of their communities.

The Orphans of the West series is a continuation of the stories of 4 orphans that were introduced in either a Hymns of the West novel or novella and goes through each orphans life.

Savior, Like a Shepherd is about Titus Hine who was introduced in Blessed Assurance (Hymns of the West Novellas #6) and how he must take care of his sister and brother as winter approaches, all while not being allowed to work anywhere.

All the Way is about Henry Salisbury, the only orphan in the series not directly introduced in a previous book, but it has other characters you will recognize from the books about the Brookings family.

He Hideth My Soul is also attached to the Brookings family and Otis Miller as Otis finds out that his grandfather left him a large inheritance and he can finally follow his dream.

He Leadeth Me takes up Gage Wilhelm’s story. Gage was introduced in I Love Thee (Hymns of the West Novellas #1) and tells how he is given the deed to his farm and told to go back to his farm. Gage gladly accepts only to have someone show up claiming his long-dead father owed another man a large sum of money and now there’s 10 years of interest added on. Continue reading

August updates, an announcement, and new goals

August ended up being a busier month than I expected. But it was a good month and I got a lot done.

Updates

In August, I orchestrated a couple of blog tours for some clients which was fun and I was thankful for their business. I also finished as much of the rough draft of Savior, Like a Shepherd as I decided to. I wasn’t sure how to write the end, so I left that for the typing up phase which I have been working on the last week. I am now about 3/4ths of the way through that process with the goal of finishing by Saturday so I can send the manuscript to my beta-readers.

I also published my third novella of the summer (and personal favorite), Blessed Assurance. If you haven’t had a chance to see anything about it yet, scroll down to yesterdays post and meet the main character, Adelaide Brown.

Besides some real life things, I think that’s about it for what happened in August. So now I can share with you the exciting news I found out on Wednesday night! Continue reading

Updates

It’s been a while since I updated you all on what I’ve been doing lately. I’m not even sure when the last time was, so bear with me if you already know a lot of this. I think I’ll do a monthly update.

In January, I published my first novella collection, A Mighty Fortress was promoted on BookBub, and I saw hope that I just might be able to make it work to write full-time. Continue reading
