Christmas in Apple Ridge trailer and giveaway!

Christmas in Apple Ridge


The Amish community of Apple Ridge is a place to discover anew that even though life doesn’t always look the way you might expect and pain can’t help but color our actions…love may just be around the corner, just in time for Christmas!

Christmas in Apple Ridge is a three-in-one collection that includes The Sound of Sleigh BellsThe Christmas Singing, and an all-new story, The Dawn of Christmas.

A note about buying The Dawn of Christmas separately:

Those who already own books one and two in the three-in-one book have asked if they can buy the The Dawn of Christmas separately. Although the answer is no, I think I have good news for you in the final paragraph found below.

Here’s what happened. My publisher said they were going to combine the two past Christmas novellas into one book to create an omnibus. My first thought was for my readers, and I wanted to give them something new to go with the first two books. So I asked my publisher if I could I write a new story for you. They agreed, and even juggled my writing schedule so I could get it written. I can’t tell you how much I love this new story! It even sparked an outline for an entire novel using two characters from The Dawn of Christmas.

It wasn’t until later I realized that everyone who had bought the first two books wouldn’t be able to get that third story unless they bought the omnibus.

So I returned to my publisher to see what could be done, and this is what they have worked out: if you own an e-reader, you can purchase the three-in-one for $9.99. If you want the actual softcover book, you can find it for less than you paid for the hardback novellas. For example Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million have the three-in-one book (Christmas in Apple Ridge) for $10.98! And Christian Book Distributors has it for $10.99!

One Last Note

I wanted to let you know that I’m aware there’s a problem with a few of my past blog posts being sent to your inboxes twice, usually weeks after the original one was posted. I’ve contacted my web guru, and we’re trying to track down the source of the problem so we can stop it from happening again. Thank you so much for your patience!
