Jerusalem Journey is about to be released in print, just in time for Christmas, completing a Gospel quartet of children's storybooks. Not quite Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but that's certainly what they're based on, plus some history, science, geography and archeology to remind us, it's all real. Enjoy!
The Five Minute Bible Story Series (TM) will be moving into the New Testament soon with this brand new book, due out in time for Christmas 2013. Bethlehem Baby tells the stories of people who might have known the infant born in a Bethlehem stable all those years ago. Meet all the familiar characters, Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, Zechariah, and more, plus many you'll never have met before. And enjoy amazing color illustrations as you read! I love Cape Arago Press!
Look out for Bethlehem Baby on kindle soon, with Nazareth Neighbors, Galilee's Gift, and Jerusalem Journey to follow.
Sadly, Stonegarden.net, publishers of Divide by Zero, closed their doors at the end of June. But Divide by Zero lives on, with all its ratings and reviews intact, thanks to the kindness and efficiency of Amazon's helpdesk. I've rereleased a kindle version, now available from
and I'm considering whether I should release a version on Smashwords too... Maybe... Or just maybe Infinite Sum will find a home with a publisher willing to take on the original novel too. A girl can dream (as can the gorgeous white cat on the cover).
You'll notice Divide by Zero still has its original cover. Many many thanks to author and artist Peter Joseph Swanson who kindly allowed me to retain his cover art.
Genesis People will be free on Amazon from April 28 to May 2 2013. Don't miss your chance to start collecting the Five Minute Bible Story Series TM
Psalm Stories will be free from May 5 to May 9. Your chance to enjoy even more stories from the Five Minute Bible Story Series TM
Divide by Zero is set for release on August 20th 2012 in paperback and ebook formats. So now I'm frantically proofreading--trying not to be too frantic and I want to be sure I notice and fix any errors.
I've nearly finished extending the story from 37,000 words to 80,000 words. Willow Moon said they would consider publishing it in paperback if I could make it long enough, so now you'll get two romances in two countries with one story and one faith to bind them, all for the price of one!
I'm just waiting (eagerly) to sign the contract--Second Wind just accepted my short story Ark into their renewal anthology, Change is in the Wind, due to be released in April 2012! It looks like 2012 might be a good year, with Divide by Zero due for release in July as well! Now, if only I could find an agent and get those children's stories settled with a publisher...
With thanks to all those wonderful friends who've offered their support, their help, their advice, and even their blogs as Flower Child begins my first ever blog-tour... Here's a list of all the places I'll be visiting. I've put a nice sparkly banner at the top of the page too, so readers can get back to this list anytime with just one click.
I'll update, fix errors, and add addresses as things change, but, so far, I think it's okay. And again, thank you all! These are all great blogs to visit anyday--why not check them out now? I'll post links and reminders all through October so you can visit them again and meet me there.
