Celebrating

Amish fiction, Love Inspired Books Comments: 22

Some of you may have seen my announcement on Facebook that I’ve signed a contract with Harlequin/Love Inspired for 6 additional books in my Indiana Amish Brides series. I’m beyond excited and grateful. So today, I thought I’d share with you a peek into what’s Coming Soon

The following are all working titles and subject to change!

  • Book 3 – Amish Matchmaker
  • Book 4 – Her Amish Cowboy
  • Book 5 – His Second Chance
  • Book 6 – For Richer or Poorer
  • Book 7 – Her Secret Child
  • Book 8 – Amish Blessings
  • Book 9 – Trouble Times Two

All are Amish romances that focus on faith, family, and God’s grace in our lives. They’ll release over the next 4 years. I want to thank each of you. The fact that you read quality Christian fiction helps publishers choose to promote that type of fiction. We couldn’t do it without you!

Comment below with the first Amish book you remember reading, and I’ll draw one winner to receive an earlier release from my book closet. Our winner from the last post was Pamela Bain, who I’ve already been in contact with. (If your name is Pamela and you didn’t receive an email from me, it was a different Pamela.)

Blessings,

2018-05-15 18.04.18Last week I had the fun, fun experience of speaking at the Willard Public Library in Battle Creek, MI. I had an awesome time! My talk was titled, “Today’s Amish–Fact vs Fiction.” I love that subject.

It’s not that I’m an expert on the Amish, but I have met a few, and I can count a few as friends which I feel very fortunate about. As an author, it’s been awesome to travel to different Amish communities and see how they live, how they Continue reading
