I recently mentioned that I’m working on a new release. I sent it off to my editor a couple days ago, and the cover is currently being designed. It’s a novel I have mentioned a few times in the past, but not very often. I wrote most of the scenes several years ago, as a personal project, and have been revising it ever since. This month, I’m excited to finally begin sharing it with you. It’s a general fiction novel, relatively short, but with a theme very near to my heart.
Why this month? The book is called October so it seemed only fitting.
Want to know what it’s about?
For Emily Baxter, life is simple. Her world is made up completely of school, church, and the community in the small farming town she calls home. All that changes one fateful Sunday, when a new girl shows up at Pleasanton Baptist—a girl unlike anyone Emily has ever seen. A girl with long red hair, crystal green eyes, and style and posture like royalty.
A girl named October.
The months that follow are filled with magic—the magic of ordinary things, of finding pictures in the stars, of imagination and a new sense of beauty. But as time goes by, Emily begins to sense that her enchanting new friend may have secrets that could break the spell. Is October really all she seems to be?
I’m working towards an October 28th release date, and so far things seem to be on track. I hope all of you will enjoy the story when it arrives, and that perhaps, in some small way, it will touch your heart.
