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.
