ten_yearsHi Friends,

It’s time to celebrate! Ten years ago this month, My first published novella, “Wherever Love Takes Us” in Wedded Bliss, hit the bookshelves, and I became a published author! My co-authors for that project were Susan Downs, Sally Laity, and Kristy Dykes. Kristy was a wonderful mentor and dear friend. She proposed the project to Barbour and critiqued my novella to help me improve my writing. Kristy passed away a few years ago from cancer, and I still miss her. I will always be grateful for her friendship and encouragement.

Each novella in Wedded Bliss features a couple who is approaching their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary and is facing an issue in their marriage that could destroy it or make it stronger. I loved writing this story and bringing in some of the lessons I’ve learned after 38 years of marriage. For some great tips about building a long-lasting marriage visit this page.

Wedded Bliss is out of print now, but my novella, “Wherever Love Takes Us,” has been republished in a two-novella collection titled Where Two Hearts Meet.

As a way to say thank you to my loyal readers, I’m making Where Two Hearts Meet available as a free download at Amazon November 23 -27. I hope you’ll get a copy and enjoy those two novellas. If you already have Where Two Hearts Meet, why not share this email with a friend and encourage them to get their free copy?

I have more good news! I just signed a new contract with WaterBrook Multnomah to write two more English historical novels. I’m busy working on the first one now. If you would like a sneak peek at the characters and setting, visit my Morningside Manor Pinterest Board.

    Thanks for this generous offer. God bless you in your life & exciting to hear about your new contract. I do have one question. How do we get this if can’t download it? Any chance to have you send one to me? If not, I understand. I love how God uses Christian fiction. I’m bed bound & reading takes me to so many places & encourages me. Helps get my mind off the pain.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Carrie. So happy to have met you at your recent book signing in Orange. I think of you often, especially when I hear your son on KWVE. May God guide you in writing your next novels. Blessed by your testimony and writing ministry.

      Hi Marilyn, so glad we met at Paris in a Cup! That’s fun to hear you listen to Pastor’s Perspective with Josh hosting on KWVE. I hope you enjoy reading Where Two Hearts Meet! When this book first came out it helped me connect with Cheryl Turner owner Paris in a Cup. Her sister saw it on Facebook, we exchanged some messages, and they invited me to stop by the next time I was in Orange. I’m so glad I did! Happy Thanksgiving to you!
