2013 Releases

What’s Ahead in 2013

I think I mentioned that I was excited about 2013. With so much support from you all, and the backing of 3 wonderful publishers, I think this is going to be an awesome year.

So what IS ahead? I’m glad you asked.

This year I have 3 books to write and turn in.

  1. In March I’ll turn in the first book in my Amish Artisan series. These are cozy mysteries (like my Shipshewana series) and will be set in Middlebury Indiana.
  2. I also am THRILLED to tell you that I will be writing a novella for a collection of 4 short Amish stories. My co-writers are Beth Wiseman, Tricia Goyer, and Kathleen Fuller. The collection is tentatively titled An Amish Garden. My part is due in May.
  3. I’ll spend the rest of the year working on my second book for the Amish Artisan series.

Here’s the fun part. I also have 3 books releasing in 2013. Yeah! Books for you to read.

  1. A Home for Lydia is the 2nd book in my Pebble Creek series, and will be in stores by 2-1-13.

  2. A Wedding for Julia is the 3rd book in the same Pebble Creek series. I believe it will be in stores 7-1-13.
  3. And lastly, The Christmas Quilt (sequel to A Simple Amish Christmas) will release in October. If you enjoyed reading about Annie and Samuel, you’re going to love this book.

That’s my year! At least the part I know about. We never really know what God has planned. I want to thank you all for being such an important part of my writing journey.
