News and other nonsense
I don't think I mentioned before, at least not formally, that I finally received the rights back to my Native American historical novel, Follow The Stars Home.
The publisher, Eternal Press, had gone through some transitions. The old, non-responsive publisher is gone, long live the king.
And I have my rights back, and have re-published the novel on Smashwords.
The story's very special to me, as it has local ties to Carlisle, Pa., and is based on the launch of the ill-fated Carlisle Indian Industrial School. It broke my heart to read some of the actual accounts of students who were forced to abandon their families and attend this boarding school. I began researching it before I'd planned to write about it, but when a story took shape in my head, I had to follow wherever it led.
If you'd like to read the opening chapters, I've posted them on Wattpad. I hope you enjoy Quiet Thunder and Black Bear's story!
On Feb. 13, I'm joining local romance authors for a signing once again at Ashcombe's Greenhouse. It's always a fun event, and it's set in the nice, warm greenhouse where we're surrounded by plants and actual blooming flowers - such a lovely change from the polar vortex we've experienced of late. If you're in the area, I hope you'll come in from the cold and join us that afternoon.
And on April 2nd, I'm taking part in a local author event at the Hershey Public Library in Hershey, Pa. It's always the sweetest place on earth, but that day will be even sweeter!
