I just finished the first draft of Chloe's Sanctuary. Oh my, what a relief. I wanted it to be done by the end of the year and I made it. Now comes the hard part. Edit, edit, edit.
If you don't know Chloe's Sanctuary is the next book in the Stones Creek Series. It begins a couple of months after the other two end. In July 1868. Chloe is the older sister to Pastor Noah Preston who was kidnapped as a ten year old. She'd had a pretty tough life. There's a short story, Chloe's Choice, available on Amazon for Kindle giving you a bit of background of her and her son Duncan. Here's the link.
I'm excited about Chloe's Sanctuary. There are lots of new people living in Stones Creek as well as the ones you already know. Be read for laughter, tears and, of course, a Happily Ever After ending. It's full of God working in the hearts of people as well.
If you've read my novel Redeeming Love which I co-wrote with my friend George McVey you know we share a love for the late 1800's. We also share some character's. His character Nugget Nate is the brother to my character Aggie Cutler. They are definitely a pair of characters.
Well, PG, as we call Pastor George, has begun a new series I'm sure many of you will like. It's a Mail Order Bride series and the first one has been released.
The Pastor's Replacement Bride
I don't want to give too much away. The book is good and the story well written. The Amazon release date is January 6 for $3.99 but will be available in early release for .99.
The Pastor's Replacement Bride been released on Amazon for Kindle. It's the first book in a new series. It's also available for Kindle Unlimited reading for free. Always a good thing.
