Hitting Lists

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

I want to thank all of you who purchased my latest release, SHUNNED AND DANGEROUS. The book hit several national bestseller lists in its first and second week of publication (still waiting on numbers for week three) and I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you, too, for the kind emails and wonderful reviews that have been posted about the book. It seems Jakob has really touched a few heartstrings in this book!

If you read and liked the book, please help spread the word. If you know of someone you think would enjoy the book, too, consider picking up a second copy for them as a gift.

As for what’s on the horizon now? SUSPENDERED SENTENCE (the 4th book in the series) will be out next March. I hope to have a cover to share with you in the next few months. In the meantime, if you’re not signed up for my e-newsletter, be sure to do that here on the website. I sent out an e-newsletter about 3 times a year and it keeps you up to date on everything that’s going on.

Finally, I still have a few more events coming up, so be sure to check the margin on the right-hand side of this page for details!

Launch Week is Here!

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

This is it, launch week for SHUNNED AND DANGEROUS (the third book in my Amish Mystery series) is finally here!

I can’t wait for all of you to read this book and to fall in love with the people of Heavenly, PA, all over again.

I will be doing some signings in March and April to coincide with the new book, but, for those of you who can’t make any of my events (listed in the margin to your right), I have a “blog tour” going on right now. Some of the blogs will simply offer a review, others will have a review and a chance to get your hands on a book, and others will have all of those things plus a post from/about the book/me.

So, in the event you’d like to check out what these reviewers are saying about the book, and, in some cases, read something I’ve put together, too, then here’s where/when I’ll be (internet-wise) this week and next.

1) March 3rd: (review/giveaway).

2) March 4th: (review/giveaway).

3) March 5th: (review/guest post from me), (guest post from me/giveaway), and (review/giveaway).

4) March 7th: (review/giveaway/guest post from me), (giveaway/guest post from me).

6) March 8th: (guest post/giveaway).

***And finally, I did an interview with Destination Amish on Feb 24th. That interview can still be read by going to:

As for what’s next after SHUNNED AND DANGEROUS?

The 4th book in the series, SUSPENDERED SENTENCE–will be out in March 2015. 🙂
