TSR Release Banner FB and Blog

My baby is now out and available to the world. Not literally, but it seems like it. The Solid Rock is by far my favorite novel of the series. There are many reasons for this. 1.) I’ve always loved reading mysteries, but was always intimidated by writing one. Now I’ve written two (one not published yet) and I think I’ve even done them both successfully! 2.) The spiritual themes in The Solid Rock are so much deeper than in my previous books. For more on those themes, check out the guest post I’m doing on Thursday on the Trust and Obey blog. 3.) It was the easiest rough draft to write. I wrote the entire rough draft (about 60,000 words) in 32 days by hand. God has blessed this book in so many ways. 4.) My cover designer came up with a great idea after my original idea didn’t work.

Make sure you read through all the way to the end of the post so you can find out about my free book, the giveaway, a fun release party, and links to the other blogs on the tour. Be sure to check out some of those blogs for different excerpts and fun interviews.

About the Book

3D The Solid RockJoshua 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 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

Fun fact #2: I just had my first 10,000 word writing day yesterday. What does that mean? It means I wrote 10,000 words in one day. Not by hand this time, though. And yes, I am a little excited about it.

And as a bonus birthday surprise, we’ll do a giveaway! Answer the question below to enter to win a paperback copy (US only, if you are international and win, you can have your choice of two ebooks) of your choice of my books, including Lily of the Valley.

What is your favorite birthday gift?

I know my answer for this year. My favorite birthday gift would be for Amazing Grace to reach #1 in at least one genre category and in the top 100 free books overall on Amazon. An extra bonus would be to reach at least 20 preorders of Lily of the Valley. A girl can dream, right? 😉
