Harvest House Publishers gave me the green light to officially let the cat out of the bag.

I have not one, but two new Amish books set in Lancaster County coming out! The first for Harvest House will release the fall of 2017 and the second in the winter of 2018.

Whoo-hoo! Time to sign my two-book contract with Harvest House!

As release dates creep closer, I’ll provide more detail. No official titles or covers to share yet. I can’t wait to introduce you to my new characters and their stories!

Why will it take so long? Harvest House has a full calendar and schedule of books already slated by some of your favorite authors. My first book’s manuscript is complete, until the publishing house editor combs through chapter by chapter. In response to their comments, I must go back and rework … an arduous but fun task.
