Come April a new Cottonwood series book will be started. This is a new venture since I will be co-writing it with George McVey. If you've read Giving Love you will find his characters Nugget Nate Ryder, his wife Penny and grandson Nathan featured. Nugget Nate is Aggie Cuttler's older brother. In Redeeming Cottonwood Nathan and his wife Grace will come to Cottonwood. Nathan is dealing with personal issues and he remembered the good counsel he got from Pastor Peter Lendrey so he decided to seek him out again.
Redeeming Cottonwood will be a combination of George McVey's characters and the people of Cottonwood. It will be Nell's story.
Pastor George McVey and I met online and have become fast friends. PG as we call him lives in West Virginia so we meet in chat rooms for Christian Authors and Facebook. His wife Sheri does some editing for me. Our writing styles seem to mesh well and we throw ideas and critiques back and forth.
April will be Camp Nano. It's similar to Nanowrimo which occurs in November each year. The goal is to start a novel on the first day of the month and get 50,000 words done by the end of the month. PG and I will be writing Redeeming Cottonwood in April and hope to have it out early summer. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
PG has a series which has started with Redeeming Reputation in which Preacher Nathan Ryder meets Grace, becomes the temporary sheriff in Franklin, MO, fights the bad guys, brings several to salvation, marries Grace and begins leading a wagon train to New Mexico. It's an action packed western and a fun read. Redeeming Trail will be out shortly and will continue Nathan's story with the journey to Redemption, NM. Several more Redemption books are planned carrying Nathan in his grandfather's footprints following where God calls him to go. Along the way body counts rise (you know guys, they gotta have fights) yet God's purpose and hand shine through.
I hope you give Redeeming Reputation a try. I'll leave you to guess who comes along with Nathan and Grace to give Nell a run for her money.
