2019 has definitely started out with a bang. I’ve signed on to write a novella with 15 other Christian fiction authors. I can’t wait to share the cover (and the buy links) with you as soon as they’re available. Summer of Suspense will release on August 6th.

I’m also working hard on a new mystery series. Dead Wrong will be the first book in Agatha’s Amish B&B Series. It’s set in a fictional Amish community in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. An Amish businesswoman, a retired detective, and a body behind cabin #3. Tell me that doesn’t sound like fun.

Many of my books are on sale for under $2 in the Kindle and Nook store, so be sure and check that out. My February special in my on-line store, VC Boutique for readers is my Remnant series for just $14 (includes free shipping). I’ve also added some spring handmade items.

As I writer, I keep a pretty detailed calendar. Some of things I need to keep an eye on are:

  • Project due dates
  • Book release dates
  • Book signings and book talks
  • Family vacations (that one is super important)

I try to be realistic about my schedule. After all, we each only get 24 hours a day and some of that really does need to be spent sleeping. I’m a real believer in calendars. “Stick to the calendar,” I say as I stumble toward my desk with a cup of coffee. But one fun thing about being a writer is that sometimes you have Pop-UP Projects–an opportunity that you didn’t expect, and when it comes along you really want to do it. Summer of Suspense is just that kind of project.

Enjoy the best of Christian suspense in this sixteen book anthology by some of Christian fiction’s most popular mystery and suspense authors. Stories of suspense by Mary Alford, Christy Barritt, Patricia Bradley, Vannetta Chapman, Mary Ellis, Rachel J Good, Debby Giusti, Ruth Hartzler, Shaen Layle, Ruth Logan Herne, Loree Lough, Elizabeth Ludwig, Nancy Mehl, Serena Miller, Samantha Price, and Alana Terry. All for just 99 cents.

Summer of Suspense is now available for preorder in the Apple store or at B&N.

This anthology collection will release on August 6th, and yes it will only be available in ebook. But think about it. Sixteen stories? By my calculation that will be 800 pages, at least. So it would be a really big, really heavy book to carry around. After the release week, the book price will be $9.99, so don’t miss out on this amazing read for just 99 cents. I’ll share the Amazon link when it’s available.

I plan on writing an Amish story, and I have the opening scene in my mind (sorry, can’t tell ya). I haven’t decided on my location yet. I’d love to hear from you on this. Where would you like this story to be set? And if you have no opinion, just let me know whether or not you enjoy clean suspense stories.  Leave a comment below, and we’ll pull one winner to receive a $10 Amazon gift certificate (delivered via email). Last week’s winner was Joan E. (Joan, you’ll receive an email from my assistant today or tomorrow.)
