We may not have it all together, but together we have it all.

We interrupt our normal Monday Christian posts for an important announcement. Well, important to me, anyhow.

My first novella, Fancy is now available for both Nook and Kindle. It’s about 28K words and sells for $2.99 both places. It’ll be on iTunes and KOBO in the next few days also.


Fancy is a fourteen year-old girl who is orphaned by the death of her father in the early stages of the Civil War, having already lost her mother at the birth of her baby sister. She takes over the operation of the family farm and plants a cotton crop.

Her pastor, whom she never particularly liked anyhow, is a recent widower and begins to target her with his “charms.” She spurns him continually throughout the book.

As if she needed more problems, an unscrupulous neighbor manages to steal her farm with the help of a forged deed.

See how she deals with these problems and watch for the surprise ending.

The cover, shown above, is by Steena Holmes. Formatting for e-publishing was done by Angela Wallace. I can give both of these ladies a hearty recommendation.

This is the first of six novellas following her life and growth over a fifteen year period.

If you buy and read Fancy, I’d appreciate your favorable review on Goodreads or on the website where you buy it. If your opinion is unfavorable, I’d appreciate your critique in and email.

Within the next week or so, both Fancy and Heaven Sent should be available in paperback through Heaven Sent will be available for Nook as well as on iTunes and KOBO the middle of next month.

You may have noticed new tabs at the top of this page. I’m in the process of updating my website. It’s a work in progress at the moment. Go ahead and look it over, but please come back later after I get it looking a little more finished.

Hope you didn’t mind this interruption of my regular programming today. Should be back to normal next Monday.
