After much persuasion, I've decided to give blogging a try. It seems to be in the "in" thing to do and a great way to keep in touch with friends and readers. I've been getting a lot of questions from readers about my next book. It will be titled Ruby and will be released in September if all goes well. I'm expecting the edits back any day. This will be the final book in my Bracelet series, which has been a fun series to write and has provided me with a wonderful education through researching various cultures in the early days of the Church.
In October I'll have another book out. This one isn't mine alone but is shared by Michele Ashman Bell and Betsy Brannon Green. Two years ago the three of us did a book signing tour together in Southern California and came up with the idea of writing a Christmas book and donating our royalties to the Perpetual Education Fund, a cause we're all three firmly committed to supporting. The title of the book will be Spirit of Christmas: Stories of the Season, a compilation of three stories, one by each of us.
I have two other stand alone books under contract that will be released during the first half of 2009. So far they only have working titles, High Country and Until Forever. I'll tell you more about them when we get closer to publication.
