Home safe from the ACFW conference

I am home from the conference, and after sleeping for ten straight hours, I am back to work on my next book. I want to apologize for not updating my blog sooner and thank everyone for entering the contest last month to win one of 38 copies of my latest releases. If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for the Amish Reader newsletter at http://www.amishreader.com. This newsletter comes out every other month with articles from authors of amish fiction, recipes, and hints for simplifying your life. They also run contests often, so don’t miss out on the next one.

Although I didn’t win the Carol Award in the long contemporary category, I feel honored to have been nominated for A Widow’s Hope. This conference was wonderful beyond words. I learned so much and met so many wonderful authors, agents, editors, and other business professionals. Congratulations to the wiinner in my category, Christina Berry for A Perfect Stranger. For a complete list of winners, please go to http://www.acfw.com
Blessings to you all!

  1. HI! I’m here as promised. You write Amish books! Wonderful! I’ve seen these books but didn’t put two-and-two together. I love Amish books. My husband’s family is just a few generations from being Amish. His great-great-great grandfather left the community to marry an English girl. But many of his kin still live in the Amish community of Arthur and Arcola, Illinois. We visit at least once a year. I’m excited to have found your blog.

    • welcome, Britt. thanks for dropping by. Always pleased when someone finds my little blog in my little corner of the world. Too bad you didn’t make the conference–right in Indiana! You could have combined the trip with a visit to relatives. (always a fun thing to do, especially when you’re hungry…)

  2. CAN’T WAIT GOING TO POST IT ON FRIG THAT NUMBER 4 IS COMING OUT I HAVE READ THE OTHERS. YOUR WRITING IS SO INTERESING.
    KEEP ON WRITTING AND I WILL KEEP ON READING

  3. thanks so much! Honestly, I “won” by just being allowed to attend this awesome event. Being a finalist was exciting enough for this little country girl.
    Right now, there is no plan for a sequel to Sarah’s Christmas Miracle. But who knows??? There are plans to do a Miller Family Reunion book, which will be book 4 of the Miller Family Series. (A Widow’s Hope, my nomination for the Carol award, was book 1)
    My book that’s coming out in late March is Abigail’s New Hope. It’s a dual story about 2 sisters–one a midwife who runs in trouble with the law, and the other about her sister who falls in love with a recluse living on her sister’s farm. He can neither hear nor speak, but they find a way to communicate through the language of love. I hope you’ll look for it in the new year. Thanks so much for posting!

  4. NEXT TIME YOU WILL WIN AND CAN YOU GIVE US A HINT OF WHAT YOUR NEXT BOOK IS GOING TO BE ABOUT. I WILL BE LOOKING FOR IT. YOU WRITE SO THAT WHEN A PERSON PICKS UP ONE OF YOUR BOOKS THEY CAN’T PUT IT DOWN OR AT LEAST THAT IS THE WAY IT IS FOR ME.
    CHRISTMAS MIRACLE WAS REALLY GREAT AND I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WILL DO ONE TO FOLLOW AND LET US KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE SON CAME BACK HOME.
    I STILL FEEL SO PRIVIAGED ABOUT WINNING THIS BOOK AND THE APRON I WILL TREASURE THEM BOTH FOR EVER.
