Is it just me or did May just completely fly by without hardly touching the ground? I cannot believe we are already into June. What’s even more unbelievable is that Bill and I will have been married 9 months tomorrow. How can time have gone by so fast?
Anyway, enough about that. This post is about goals, so I should probably get to those. I got almost all of the goals done. Here’s the complete list: Continue reading →
I have a new book coming out next month! It will be available for preorder as soon as I can get it up. But in the meantime, I have the cover ready for viewing! My friend, Amanda Tero made it for me after my attempts failed and I love it! What do you think of it?
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 →
Who doesn’t like a scavenger hunt? I suppose it depends on the kind of scavenger hunt, but today I’m here to reveal the covers for my three upcoming novellas.
Each novella will be published this summer. One on June 26th, one on July 26th, and the last one on August 26th. To reveal the covers, I have a scavenger hunt set up. I have a few clues for you and then once you find the covers, you can fill out the form below to enter a giveaway for a $25 Amazon Gift Card! Each cover you find will get you four extra entries. Entries will be closed on June 10th and the winner announced on June 11th. Continue reading →
Are you on Facebook? Yes? Great! Come join me for a super fun party we are calling “Stories for a Family Gathering.” It is for a friend of mine who is finally releasing all of her books in print as well as eBook. I am organizing it, so I’ll be there most of the party, but we also have 6 other authors coming to join in on the fun. The Facebook party will be April 23 from 1-4:45 Central time.
The part I’m looking forward to the most at the moment is the cover reveal I am planning to do at about 3:10 during the party. Only a very few people have seen the cover and I haven’t leaked the information about what I am writing and releasing in May either. Of course, I do realize that many of you may not be on Facebook, so I won’t leave you in the dark for long. If you can’t make it to the party, I will also post about the project, and the cover, on my blog that Monday, April 25th.
In addition to the cover reveal, there will be giveaways, games, trivia, and much, much more!
Today, I’m excited to announce that I have not only an official release day, but also a cover for The Solid Rock, AND it’s also Joshua Brookings’ birthday!! There’s a catch to seeing the cover, though. You need to gather all 15 clues. There’s also an exciting giveaway of 10 books, well 14 if you count the box set as 5 instead of just 1. Have fun searching for the clues! Instructions on how to see the cover are under the Clues section of the blog post.
About the Book
Joshua woke with a quiet groan. As his senses woke up one at a time, he cracked his eyelids open. Sure enough, there was a silhouetted form standing at the foot of the bed. From the sickly sweet smell, the person was either from the brothel down the street or had recently left one.
He forced himself to breathe evenly and reached for the knife in his thigh holster. With as tough and evil a voice as he could imitate, he spoke, “State your intentions.”
Pinkerton detective, Joshua Brookings, is sent on a job that seems simple on the surface. His fellow detective has been kidnapped and his boss, William Pinkerton senses foul play. Joshua is sent to investigate Edward’s case in hopes of finding the kidnapped detective and helping solve the case that has taken over ten years to investigate.
Arriving in Cheyenne, Joshua finds much more than a simple kidnapping. Yet again, he must go undercover, something he made his boss promise never to make him do again. The only Christian in the outlaw group, Joshua falters and almost loses faith in God’s providence. Will he stand on the solid Rock or drown in the sinking sand? Continue reading →
I’m super excited to announce that I have a cover for The Solid Rock!!!! And I have a cover reveal coming up on Friday that you will NOT want to miss. It has clues, a fun giveaway, interviews, and excerpts.
