I’ve had a few busy long days working on editing my book and designing a cover. As soon as I knew the book was in print, I posted on websites to announce the book’s release. I have a list of buyers that like to know first. Some have emailed me several times wondering how soon I’d have the book done. I don’t like to put all the buyers names together and email one message so I email them one at a time. Gives me a chance to personalize the messages. These are buyers that have come to know me through my writing and other interests. We have struck up a Internet friendship.
This book is fourth in the Nurse Hal Among The Amish Series titled As Her Name Is So Is Redbird. One of the buyers said she finds my Nurse Hal to be the most realistic convert to Amish she has met. I think there is a compliment in that statement. I’ve succeeded in writing such descriptive characters that this reader feels as if she knows them. Each book does get easier to write since I already have the characters developed but coming up with new story lines is the challenge.
Now this book is for sale in Amazon in paperback ISBN 0982459548 and as soon as I can get to it on my bookstore website http.//www.booksbyfaybookstore.weebly.com. For ebooks look in Kindle, nook and smashwords. Also, the paperback is on ebay for a month and maybe longer if sales are good.
Here is the back of the book:
If spring is a season of rebirth and love, Hallie Lapp’s farm, at first glance, seems to be the place to be. What she didn’t see coming after the birth of her daughter, Redbird, was an abandoned baby dropped off in her buggy as part of the Safe Haven law. She couldn’t imagine a runaway girl, Annie Hosteller, showing up on her doorstep, either. Once Nurse Hal is forced to meet the scary men from the Hosteller compound life isn’t the same for the Amish community for months to come. In the middle of the night, Joseph Hosteller sends his sons to search for his daughter and her newborn infant. They beat up Amish farmers, cut off their beard and their wives hair. More violence is threatened if Joseph Hosteller’s daughter and baby aren’t returned to him. Bishop Bontrager warns everyone to stay home and protect themselves from home invasions in the middle of the night. Nurse Hal fears what will happen when the Hostellers find Joseph’s daughter, Annie, and her baby are at the Lapp farm. What harm will come to Nurse Hal and her family when the Hostellers invade their home?
It is again looks closer to spring out my windows. The snow has almost melted away. I sowed my bedding plants last week in pots and have a few tomatoes peeking through. This book is done and now on to the next one before I wind up in my own birthing clinic, our barn.
