Hi. I’m so excited because next week, the four-in-one anthology I’ve been mentioning all summer will finally be out in stores and available online. As of October 14th, Sleigh Bells Rings is officially a real book! I want to give away two copies here. So leave a comment and I’ll draw two names and announce the winners when I post again on October 19th! While you’re posting, tell me what you like or dislike about anthologies and series books. Do you enjoy several stories about the same people? We sure hope so!
The above cover is so pretty, but I’d also like to share a little bit about each of the authors and our heroines. I enjoyed working with Sandie Bricker, Lynette Sowell, and Barbara Scott on this story about four sisters who return to a rundown Kentucky horse farm to decide whether to love it or list it. My heroine Amy wants to list it, but a whole slew of people try to convince her otherwise. Even Dan the Developer who wants the land for a fancy estate subdivision has a change of heart once he meets Amy.
Sandie Bricker is a writer chick. You can find out all about her exciting former career as a publicist to the stars on her website at www.sandrabricker.com. Sandie has written twenty books. She begins our story in Sleigh Bells Ring with “All I Want for Christmas” starring Joanna Tucker, better know as Jo-Jo.
Next we have author Lynette Sowell. She is an author, journalist and Carol Award winner. She is fond of coffee and chocolate. You can find out more about her at www.facebook.com/lynettesowellauthor
Lynette’s story is titled “Her Old Kentucky Home” and her heroine is Bella:
Then we have Barbara J. Scott. Barbara has worked as an editor, an agent and an author. She wears many hats and we all love her. You can find out about Barbara at barbarajscott.com (author). She kept us all in line while working on this project. Now it’s time to meet her heroine in “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”, Sophie:
And finally, me. You all know way more about me than you ever wanted to know, but I’m been writing since grammar school and sold my first book in 1993. So I’ve been at this for twenty-three years and counting. My heroine in “Please Come Home for Christmas” has been avoiding coming home for many years. It’s time to meet Amy:
That’s it. I’ve known of these ladies for many years but it was a thrill to work with them on this new venture for Gilead Publishing. And don’t forget, we are having a Facebook Launch party on Thursday, October 13th from 8-9:30 (EST)
We will have fun and give away some great “wintry” prizes. Stop by and see us and all of the Tucker clan!
