I Have a Newsletter!

So, I finally did it.  I finally figured out how to create an official author newsletter!  The form to join is now part of my author page, so you can find it by clicking "Newsletter" in the top menu.

Or, here's the direct link to the form.

I've also decided to use the newsletter carefully, sparingly.  I know that people are inundated these days with junk mail and spam, so I'll be sure only to send a newsletter/email out when I'm sharing special news, like future release dates or cover reveals.

I like the idea of a newsletter.  Of sending people information who want that information, people who signed up for it of their own accord.  So, if you're one of those people --- thanks!  :-)

Cover Reveal!

I think one of my most favorite events has to be a book cover reveal!  As an author, I usually tend to "see" a cover in my mind by the time a book is finished.  And, thankfully, Streetlight Graphics and Red Adept Publishing have easily met those cover expectations for all three of my novels.

So, without further ado, here's the cover for Book 3 in the series (release date will be August or Sept. of 2015):

I adore the gorgeous night sky, the soft glow of cottage lights, but most especially, I love the tiny detail of the footprints in the snow.  Here's why:

Book description:
  One December night, in the sleepy Cotswold village of Chilton Crosse, a drifter with a mysterious past collapses on George and Mary Cartwright’s snowy doorstep.  During the next few weeks, as Christmas cheer spreads throughout the village with decorations and a Dickens-themed festival, Mary nurtures the stranger, Ben, back to health, and becomes curious about the secrets he’s been holding so tightly.   

   As Ben gains his strength and begins to trust Mary and George, he lowers the wall he’s so carefully constructed.  But when Christmas Eve arrives, one of his secrets accidentally comes to light, forcing him to confront the darkness of his past—and to rediscover the faith he’d lost months before.  And on that holiest of nights, he finally begins to understand that mercy and forgiveness are meant for him, too.

For fun, here are all three books (so far) in the series. They look so beautiful together:

 Now, it's time to focus on writing Book 4!  I wonder what that cover will look like......
