Thanks, Kimberly. Claiming Peace is book 3 in the Caney Creek Series, a Southern inspirational historical romance. Here is the back cover blurb:
Facing her lowest moments, Callie’s life begins to crumble. As he’s done with others of his extended family, can Jim help her find peace? Visit again the Callaway family and friends in 1951 who live in the Southern Appalachians of East Tennessee. Why did Callie have an appointment with a neurologist? Will she work her way through whatever lies ahead for her and her family? Does Emmajean’s attraction for the young lawyer, Terry, blossom further or die on the vine when he wants her to meet his parents? Can Caroline and Jim find happiness in their long-delayed marriage? You’ll meet some new characters as the Callaway saga continues. Follow the Callaway family throughout the Caney Creek Series—live their triumphs, sorrows, achievements, and losses.
Great teaser! What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?
If you feel God has given you a story to write, write it, and don’t give up!
That’s wonderful advice that is applicable to all areas of our lives. 🙂 What are you currently working on?
I’m busy with promotion on this last book of the Caney Creek Series. I have ideas for another series, set in West Virginia, but nothing official at this point.
We look forward to seeing what you end up doing with those ideas.
If you were stranded on a desert island, what three things would you absolutely want to have with you.
Only three? Let me think here. Many people know I am uncomfortable in the dark. So…my Bible, lots of candles and matches, and lots of drinkable water. I’d love to have paper and pencil to write, but I decided water would be more important on the island.
LOL, That’s more than three. Thanks for offering to give one lucky commenter a copy of Claiming Peace.
