Oh, there is joy in Mudville tonight!!!
I can happily announce that I have just received a new 4-book contract for a delightful series of books set in the southwest corner of New York State, the corner that houses
Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqa Counties!!!!
HAPPY DANCING IN UPSTATE!!!!
YEEEEEE HAAAAAAAWWWWW! :)
The "Kirkwood Lake" series will feature sweet, compelling stories of law enforcement...
Holy Hot Heroes, Batman!!!
To celebrate, I want your help... We chatted about this on Facebook, but if you didn't see it there, here it is...
Two small children walked out of the forest. Bedraggled. Tired. Bruised, scraped, forlorn. The little girl is a mess, but her eyes show a wisdom beyond her years... The little boy, still in a diaper that's seen better days, is trusting his maybe five-year-old sister to keep him safe.
Two babes... Alone... Wandering...
We don't know anything about their parents yet... Good, bad, indifferent...
We only know they appeared, little wanderers, in need of loving arms... a warm bath... clean jammies.
My husband had this lithograph on his childhood wall. I've always loved it, the simple image of God watching over us in times of peril... Guiding us... If only we'd listen better, right???
So help me name these children! I'm making a list of possible names, so either be BRAVE and comment here!!!!
(laughing just a little at lurkers!!!)
e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your suggestions!
Everyone who offers a name either here, through e-mail or on Facebook will be placed into a drawing for a preview copy of "His Mistletoe Family"!!!
Here's the cover:
"When two orphaned boys and their aunt arrive for Thanksgiving dinner at the church, retired army Colonel Brett Stanton feels his heart tugged. Despite having her hands full, young businesswoman Haley Jennings handles her nephews with a smile. Still, Brett can't get too close to the needy trio.He lost his son and brother to the uniform, and isn't about to set himself up for loss again.
Soon, sweet Haley and the boys remind him of old dreams...and teach him
that new dreams provide the greatest hope for a perfect family Christmas."
I will be giving away FIVE COPIES in October.... And I have large print copies and regular!
And I can't wait to hear what names you suggest!
FYI: Hansel and Gretel... SIGH!!!! :) Have been suggested and rejected, LOL!
