This is the Last Day to Get Emerald Fire for Just 99 Cents!

JT_Emerald-book-ThumbnailThis is the last day that the ebook of Emerald Fire, Book 2 of the Jewel Trilogy, will be dropped in price from $3.99 to 0.99!

Here are just some of the amazing reviews that Emerald Fire has received (in addition to the AMAZING review from Mom Loves 2 Read & Blog at this link):

As soon as I started out in it I just could not stop. It showed real struggles, how to cope with them, and move on. It is a great Christian Romance, with a great moral. It’s a book I would definatly recommend this book to everyone who loves a good Christian fiction Romance. ~Cooking from a SAHM

The author tells and showed me as reader just how important having God in our lives is. I loved how the author expressed the characters emotions with such passion,it had me in tears both of joy and sadness. ~Romancing the Book

Amazing. I did not want to put it down. I am so excited to get started on the next book. God is so good and blesses us in many ways. The example of prayer and quiet time with God was a great reminder. ~Amazon Review

After reading Sapphire Ice, I was anxious to read the next book in the trilogy. I was not disappointed!! This was a great love story full of passion, pain, and promise. It was filled with well-developed characters and written very skillfully. I would agree with other reviewers and suggest reading Sapphire Ice first so you don’t spoil any of the storyline! Highly recommended!! ~Amazon Review

Green eyed Maxine fights daily to extinguish the embers of her fiery youth. Long time friend Barry’s faith in God is deeply shaken when he is suddenly widowed. One spontaneous weekend shortly after the funeral, in the most unlikely of circumstances, they elope. But catastrophe threatens to wreck the happily ever after love story neither of them ever dreamed could come true. Only trusting God can carry them through the fire.

Emerald Fire can be purchased in e-book format at the following places:

Smashwords, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, All Romance eBooks , Apple iTunes Store , Kobo, Sony, Diesel, eBookIt, Lulu, Bookie Jar

Emerald Fire can be purchased in paperback at the following places:

Create Space, Amazon,Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million

Here is the blurb:

A terrifying past imprisoned Maxine Bartlett all her adult life, shackling her with fear anytime a man even touched her.

In a spontaneous weekend, she unintentionally elopes with an unlikely groom. After a magical wedding night filled with love and passion, “Maxi” finally discards her dreadful chains.
She doesn’t know that her new husband has turned his back on God. Worried over how the world might see the completely unexpected – and some would certainly say inappropriate – marriage, in his pride he promises Maxine a quiet annulment.

Unwilling to let their marriage disappear as if it never happened, Maxine refuses to cooperate. Seeking God’s will, she moves in with him and informs him that when he decides to act like her husband again, he will find his loving wife waiting for him right there in their home. As the days stretch into weeks, the newlyweds slowly begin to trust and even love each other.

Then, just as they begin to live the “happily ever after” love story that neither of them ever dreamed could come true, a sudden and nightmarish catastrophe strikes that could wreck everything. Will her husband realize that he must trust God once more? Can he find peace and strength enough to carry them through the flames?

Our three round system of elimination covers every facet – highly reviewed, loved by fans, and critiqued by qualified judges. No other award system today begins to compare, making the RONE award the very highest of honors bestowed on a book in the publishing industry.

To keep the voting honest and fair, they have implemented rather rigorous voting procedure. If you are a subscriber, you get a vote.

I checked their website this morning and subscriptions are FREE for an unspecified limited time If you aren’t a subscriber, here is your opportunity to become one at no cost. I will have an article in the magazine in June about baking bread advertising my upcoming cookbook, The Walking Bread, The Bread Will Rise! soon, so why not?

A Melody for James: Sneak Peak

melodyforjamesfinalv1.3We are quickly approaching the June 15th release date!  Here is a brief excerpt of A Melody for James, Book 1 of the Song of Suspense Series:

“Tell me about the song you wrote this morning,” James said.

Melody sat back, full and content, and smiled. “I can play it for you if you’d like,” she said, gesturing to the baby grand piano on the platform by the huge window. “I loved what I was hearing as I wrote it down.”

“I’d love that.”

Melody tossed her napkin on top of her plate and stood. “Let me grab the notebook.” As she opened her bag, her phone rang. The number looked weird – an international number she didn’t recognize. She thought of a couple of friends on European tours, so she answered without caution.

“Hello?”

The voice on the other end was unrecognizable, heavily accented with maybe a Russian accent. “There is only one reason to send you messages.”

Not quite comprehending the call, she said, “Oh?”

“Yes. It is so that I can put you on edge. It makes the end so much sweeter to know that you’re afraid, rather than oblivious.”

Tingling fear swept her limbs, leaving her weak. “Who is this?” she whispered with an outward breath.

“You will never know. And that makes it funny.” After a long pause he said, “I knew his wife, you know.”

“I beg your pardon?” Uneasy, Melody shifted her eyes to James. He clearly saw something wrong because he immediately was by her side. Melody pulled the phone away from her ear as if it hurt to have it touch her skin. With a swipe of her thumb, she put the phone into speaker mode.

“Unlike you, she didn’t know she was going to die.”

No sound preempted the line going dead. One minute the call was connected, the next it wasn’t. With a cry, Melody dropped her phone.

Solitary strangers meet during a stormy stopover.
Hours later, their hearts hum a harmonious duet.

Melody Mason has the hottest female voice in the country music scene. But the cheers of throngs of adoring fans mean little in the absence of the handsome stranger who rescued her years before. Widower James Montgomery has never forgotten her. He prays God can bring her back.

Incredible events finally bring them face to face again. Together at last, they realize the bond between them has miraculously risen to a crescendo, melodiously marrying them like strong symphonic chords. Uncannily, they learn they share more in common than they could have ever imagined. They know God reunited them for a purpose.

Sinister forces threaten to destroy their new found happiness. The couple must work in close concert, placing all their faith in God as they solve the deadly mystery that ties their lives inexplicably together.

Fire, loss, and bloodshed cannot shake their faith in God to see them through as they face a percussive climax that leaves hearts and lives forever changed.

Look for A Melody for James June 15th wherever books are sold!

One More Month!

We are only one month away from the release of A Melody for James, Book One of the Song of Suspense Series! Beta readers are telling me they like this book better than the Jewel Series!

I am getting really excited!  This book has been a long time coming!  Here is the dedication:

This book imelodyforjamesfinalv1.3s lovingly dedicated to…

My mom, Kay:

Fourteen years ago, I woke up from a dream in the middle of the night on New Year’s night, turned on my computer, and just started typing. Ultimately, I wrote A Melody for James. It was my first book, and, I wrote it entirely in secret. Every morning, from the hours of 4 to 6 AM, I wrote, getting this story out as quickly as I could but telling absolutely no one I was doing it.

Halfway through writing it, I printed out my progress and mailed it to my mom with a simple note. “I’m writing a book. Let me know what you think of it.”

For a week, half a novel sat on my mom’s counter because she was afraid to read it — afraid it would be bad and then she’d have to pretend she enjoyed it.

Finally, she could ignore it no longer. She sat down to read and couldn’t stop because she became so engrossed in the story. She got to the end of what I’d sent her, picked up the phone, and called me at work.

“This is your mother,” she said by way of preamble. “I want you to quit your job, go home, and finish that book!”

So, here it is, Mama. The finished book, 14 years later. I hope you enjoy it as much the second time as you did the first.

Look for A Melody for James June 15th wherever books are sold!
