When Research Turns Into Life Tips

May 5th, 2015

In preparation for the writing phase of each new book in my Amish Mysteries series, I take a trip down to Lancaster County, PA for research. Each time I go, I come away with greater knowledge of the Amish. This last trip, however, had me leaving with new ideas for my life.

I tell how and why over at Amish Wisdom in this post: http://amishwisdom.com/life-lancaster-county-style-by-laura-bradford/



Suspendered Sentence is Making Lists…

March 19th, 2015

For the second week in a row, SUSPENDERED SENTENCE has remained on both the Bookscan and Barnes & Noble mass market fiction bestseller list.

Thank you.

I could not say that without the support of all of you–my loyal readers.

If you’ve purchased SUSPENDERED SENTENCE, thank you.  If you’ve purchased, read, and reviewed SUSPENDERED SENTENCE, thank you. If you’ve gone the extra step and told your reading-friends and family about SUSPENDERED SENTENCE, thank you.

If you enjoyed the book, please keep spreading the word. It’s the best way to build the fan base for this series and the best chance we have at seeing the series continue after next March’s book # 5.

As for book #5, I should be announcing a title soon. And as soon as it’s available for pre-order, I’ll let you know that, too.  Early sales of this next book will be crucial in getting a series extension.

Once again, thank you!!

It’s Here, It’s Here

We are just a little over a week away until SUSPENDERED SENTENCE (book #4 in my Amish Mysteries) releases and I couldn’t be more excited.

To make the lead-up to launch day even more fun, I’ve added a map of Heavenly to  this website (just click on the “Extras” tab to view). All of the buildings on Lighted Way are “clickable” and will allow you to see a close up view of that shop, as well as read some fun facts. You can also click on Diane’s inn, the pond where Jakob played as an Amish youth, and the rock on which Claire and Ben have stargazed in the past!

So check it out!

I’ll be back here on March 3rd with all sorts of launch day news!
