My publisher was gracious enough to gift some individuals and ministries with my book before next week's release. So a few people are reading it, including my mother-in-law:) For someone who has kept writing a secret for so long, it's a bit of a shock handing out your heart in public, so to speak. I asked that copies be sent to the Berea public library in Kentucky as well as the Port Angeles branch here. I love libraries! I've heard that Christianbook.com is shipping the book this week and Amazon will follow next week. They also have a Kindle edition. Then it will be in bookstores nationwide around August 1st. Thank you for those who have bought The Frontiersman's Daughter or who plan to. Your support means so much!

Next week, Saturday, August 1, I'll be drawing a name for a complimentary copy of the book and posting the winner's name here that day. It's not too late to put your name in the hat. Just leave a comment here.

In the meantime, Wyatt is getting ready to go to camp next week and Paul is helping decorate a float for our little town's Joyce Daze Wild Blackberry Festival on August 1st. Expected to be 92 degrees soon! The natives are restless but this Kentucky girl is loving it! Record-breaking temps here while I've heard Kentucky is cooling down. Would love a trip home but no time for that just yet.

Hope your Tuesday is sunny and full of blessings!

My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart exults, and with my song I shall thank Him. Psalm 28:6


  1. I am very excited for you! Congratulations on the birth of your "literary child". To achieve true happiness in life, one must follow their own inner voice. Thank you for your lovely "imagination" emails.

  2. I've heard that the best part of being an author is meeting readers like you and that is certainly coming true. Your gracious comments warm my heart! I hope my posts continue to bless you in some way. Thank you for writing, Virginia!
