Things are going well here on the ranch, or rather the farm. Even with the cold wet spring we have the crops almost all planted. Just a few beans and spots that are too wet for corn. My gardening isn’t going to well though. It’s what I should be doing now.
Instead I decided to let you know that, baring unforeseen life events Leah’s Peace and Chasing Norie will be released in early June. I’ll be at the Aledo Rhubarb Fest on June 7 & 8 in Aledo, IL selling print and large print copies in addition to the Cottonwood series books. If you’ve purchased print versions and would like them signed I’ll be happy to do that if you bring them along.
Redeeming Love, the 4th book in the Cottonwood Series will not be available then. George McVey, the co-author, was quite in and spent time in the hospital and recovering so that project was put on the back burner for a while. I’m hoping to have some print books of his available at the Fest too for you to buy and get acquainted with Nugget Nate’s grandson Nathan and his wife Grace as they start life together.
Nathan, a minister, has earned the reputation of being a gunfighter called The Preacher. Redeeming Reputation chronicles his struggle in reconciling his calling as a pastor and the need for justice and mercy in the old West. He meets his wife Grace in the book too. It’s available on Amazon as well as smashwords.com. PG’s next book Redeeming Trail is in the edit stage and he hopes to have it available during Rhubarb Fest also.
Friday, May 17 at 6:00 PM CDT I will be the featured author on Penelope’s Book Chat internet radio blog. It’s about a one hour interview during which you can call in and ask questions. I hope you can listen live but it will be available online for later listening.
Well, the day is beautiful and the outside calls. I need to get a little gardening done then get back to editing.
