ENCHANTING NICHOLETTE: Cover Real Time + GIVEAWAY!

My newest novella, Enchanting Nicholette, is a historical romance written from First Person Point of View, like all of my other books. It is part of The Everstone Chronicles Series, but is also a stand-alone story. And not really that short, compared to most novellas... it's sitting pretty at 50,000 words, so it's more like a shorter novel. :)

It hits bookstores October 9, 2018! 


And not only do I have the cover for you here, but so much more! 


If you simply cannot wait to read my long awaited offering to the published book world, there is a way you can read it EARLY. 


Like, on June 19th


(which also happens to be my husband's birthday!) 


And for practically FREE. 


Well, almost free. 



For 99 cents... but for those 99 cents, you also get six other novellas by some author friends of mine! And it sort of feels like we're giving them away, because not a single one of us is actually getting paid, but instead we're donating the proceeds to charity. 

If you want to know more about the different novellas and their authors right now, click here


And here, if you want to add it to GoodReads?


If you want to pre-order this fabulous collection of novellas by well-established and award-winning authors, click here. 


If you want a chance to win a $30 Amazon Gift Card AND the full set of The Everstone Chronicles in paperback... keep scrolling down.


And if you want to see the full version of The Everstone Chronicles/Whitaker House cover of Enchanting Nicholette.... 














keep scrolling...














I promise, it's worth it!















And... here it is! (squeal!)






What do you think? 


Personally, I LOVE IT. 


And if you want to PRE-ORDER this lovely, darling book just so you can have this fabulous cover on your bookshelf to grab and re-read anytime you feel like swooning and sighing... or your kindle... because it will look great there too... click here!




I know October is a million years away... oh, how I know. But you can at least add it to your reading list on GoodReads until you're able to have that baby in your hands.   















The blurb


Young, widowed, and newly out of mourning, Nicholette Everstone is an heiress yearning to know true love. She’d been fortunate her parents had arranged for her to marry her loving late husband, but the marriage ended tragically on her wedding day. Bereft and alone, she returns home to Boston after being away for two years, to find there’s someone new to her set of friends and family she can’t help but fall for. But when she learns of the danger and sacrifices this man takes on for the safety of others, will her heart be strong enough to keep her fears of “what if” at bay?

Timeless Love Covers to Reveal Soon!

The Timeless Love novella collection will be up for pre-order this week! It's seven good length novellas (mine is 50K words/90K is regular book length) from some pretty awesome authors--and it's only 99CENTS! All royalties from the sale of the novella collection will be donated straight to LiveStrong. 

Enchanting Nicholette, the novella I've included in this collection is technically part of The Everstone Chronicles Series, but also completely readable as a stand-alone. The collection will only be available as an ebook, and only as a collection until the beginning of July. It will then be unavailable to purchase and the individual novellas will then be released separately. 

And guess what? All of the covers for the individual novellas have been completed, and they pretty much all look GORGEOUS. So, you want a sneak peak, right? Well, here you go! 


Never heard of some of the authors? Some are indie published (very well-done self-published), some are traditionally published (publisher contracted) and some have done both! We made this collection to be a bit of a sampler of our styles and so readers could get to know a few more authors! 

Click on their names below to learn more about my fellow authors! 


Watch out for more sneak peaks and for more info about each of the novellas in the next few days, and then the full covers on Wednesday!

I had the honor of endorsing Carolyn Miller’s fourth book, Winning Miss Winthrop, and now the joy of having the book in my hands with my name and endorsement right there on the back! And what I said is very true! “Fans of Christian Regency romances by Sarah Ladd, Sarah Eden and Michelle Griep will adore Carolyn Miller’s books!” ❤️
