Looking Ahead

While I'm still enjoying the release of THE FORGIVEN last week (Number 7 on Amazon Inspirational Best Sellers!), I'm also looking ahead to the next book that's coming out, AN AMISH FAMILY CHRISTMAS, which is a collection of two Amish Christmas novellas. It will be in stores in early November, so I hope you'll be watching for it. My friend and fellow author Pat McDonald and I cooperated in producing two special Christmas stories for you to enjoy.

My story, Heart of Christmas, revolves around a lost love, two troubled children, and the Christmas program at an Amish school. Be sure to check back next week, when I'll be doing a special book giveaway of AN AMISH FAMILY CHRISTMAS!

I've received the go-ahead to show off the cover of the second book in my Keepers of the Promise series from Berkley Books. THE RESCUED will be out in June, 2015, and a lot of effort has gone into producing what I think is an absolutely lovely cover for the story. I had suggested showing a pony cart--something very common on Amish farms as the children learn to drive that way--and had sent several photos to my editor. I was delighted to see the result!

And don't forget that Book One, THE FORGIVEN, will be available in stores and online this week.
