No, this is not about another grandchild, although in about five months, we should be making that announcement. I’ve said it before, and I know I will again. Grandchildren are the best little people in this life! We have blessings running over in that area!

After many months, and lots of hard work from my editor and our oldest daughter, I can finally say that my newest book is available! So many of you have asked about it, and I really appreciate that! As I am writing this post, Amazon is still updating my author page, but you may purchase both the paperback and kindle editions right here:

If you purchase the paperback edition, the kindle edition is yours for free!

Here’s a little sneak peak at the back cover:

Back cover, When Hope Blooms

I will also be having a giveaway for this book over at Goodreads. Check back here for more details on that. And if you love getting free stuff, please enter to win a signed copy of the fourth book in the Rubyville series, A Place in My Heart. There are just ten more days to enter this giveaway. I’ve sent out nine books from the Rubyville series so far and you could be another winner. A giveaway for my first published work, To Thee I’m Wed, (and the most talked about story so far), will begin on July 1st.

Lots of exciting things happening this summer! I have several events scheduled. The best part about that is I have the privilege of meeting you, the reader! And of course, I have a second book about the little town of Wheatacre, Kansas that is speaking to me. I know, that sounds a bit crazy, but if you are a writer, you understand!

Whew! Now that I have that out of my head, maybe I can get a little sleep before I need to get up for the day! Have a beautiful day!

    1. Actually, all of my books are more geared for middle-aged women! 😉 I write about the struggles we women face as we grow older, have children, and when our marriages are no longer new, but still loved. I also focus on the tests, trials and temptations we deal with as Christians, and that there is an answer when we fall. But back to your question…I think the Rubyville series would be wonderful. My readers have really loved that series. It travels over 100 years and the Barton women. I had a lot of fun writing about the different fashions, cars, etc. for the different time periods. They make for a great discussion! I would be delighted to send you the series, and you can share it with others. This would be my gift to you. Your life, your family has inspired me and I would love your input. You may contact me through my website with your address, etc. if you are interested. Have a great day!
