Fall Happenings

Fall is shaping up to be a busy time in the Chapman household. I’m hoping to take a research trip to Alpine Texas, which is the setting for a new dystopian series I’m writing. (If you enjoyed Deep Shadows, you’re going to love these books.) We also have a mini-reunion for my husband and his college buddies. And lastly, I’ll have 3 releases.

Dead Set

Publisher: Indie (original)

Releasing: 9-21-21

This is Book 3 in my Agatha’s Amish B&B series. Agatha’s B&B is undergoing a renovation when she uncovers some lost Texas treasure. Once the diamond-studded Waynard Buckle is returned to its rightful owner, Agatha hopes that will be the end of it. Unfortunately, the trouble is just beginning… You can read the entire blurb here for Amazon and here for all other ebook vendors. I hope to have the print book ready for purchase before 9-21. This one will only be available on-line, so order your copy now!

An Amish Baby for Christmas

Publisher: Love Inspired (original)

Releasing: 10-26-21

Thomas Albrecht agrees to help Widow Yutzy with her farm, though he’s never met her. He often does work for the elderly in Shipshewana, but this time Thomas is in for a surprise. Abigail is not elderly. She’s stubborn and opinionated and more than willing to speak her mind. She’s also frightened and unsure how to navigate the months ahead as she waits for her first child to be born. As for Thomas, he understands that he needs to finish this job as quickly as possible before he gets too close to Abigail and risks losing his heart. Pre-order at Amazon here or see all other vendor links here. You should also be able to find copies at your local Walmart.

The Amish Christmas Secret and The Amish Widow’s Christmas Hope

Publisher: Love Inspired (reprint) with Carrie Lighte

Releasing: 10-26-21

This is a 2-in-1 reprint. If you missed my book, The Amish Christmas Secret when it originally released last year, now’s your chance to grab a copy. I’m thrilled to be paired with the lovely Carrie Lighte. You can pre-order at Amazon here or see all other vendor links here. You can also watch for this one at your local Walmart.

In Texas, we are counting the days until cooler weather. Once it arrives, I’m hoping to sneak in a couple of camping trips. That’s my fall in a nutshell. What do you have planned?

    I have the first book in the series but the second one in Agatha’s Amish Bed andBreakfast only came out in Nook or larger print. How do I get the second book Dead Broke in paperback before the third book comes out?

  13. Patricia Shrader on September 1, 2021 at 4:14 pm

    Wow – you sure are busy! I hope you get to take a couple of camping trips when the weather cools down. I hope to travel North when covid calms down. I will look for these new releases at our local Walmart. Blessings from Florida! ☀️

  16. Patricia Shrader on September 1, 2021 at 4:22 pm

    Question: How do the Amish feel about covid vaccines/facemasks? Are they as varied in their responses as the rest of us are, or of one accord?

    • Vannetta Chapman on September 1, 2021 at 4:40 pm

      Hi Patricia. I’ll answer this in next month’s newsletter. Thanks for submitting–it’s a great question.

    I love reading Amish stories. I am celebrating my 46 th wedding anniversary this Sunday.

  62. Vivian Furbay on September 3, 2021 at 9:04 am

    I read the first book of yours in a dystopian series about when there was no electrical power and how Christians had got together to help each other and there were evil people even in the government. And you also write Amish books! What a difference!

  63. Cecilia on September 3, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    I love your books, especially Agatha’s series. We are going to Ft. Worth in October to help with our granddaughters and I am hoping it will be cooler.

  64. Linda McFarland on September 4, 2021 at 1:14 pm

    An Amish Baby for Christmas has the sweetest cover. Can’t wait to have cooler weather to sit by the fireplace and read.
