As you can see, I made some minor changes to the cover. I finessed the fonts a bit and that was it. Love those winding old train tracks!
The Kindle version of the short story, "The Newcomer." is now out for an affordable $0.99 but you will be able to get it free starting Thursday (September 24) midnight Pacific Daylight Time (3 am Eastern Daylight Time). It will be free until 11:59 PDT (2:59 EST) Monday September 28. Of course, if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited you can get it for free anytime.
Find out how the Saint Maggie Series' unlikely, portly lead, Eli Smith, came to Blaineton and ended up staying thanks to the kindness of boarding house owner, Maggie Blaine. Also discover how the chemistry between Maggie and Eli got its start. It only took them five years to actually act on that chemistry but, hey, it's the mid-1800s in a little New Jersey town. Life was slower then. Or so they say. Anyway, if you're curious you can read how their friendship morphed into marriage in the full-length novel, Saint Maggie.
I'm excited the short story is out and am looking forward to having the paperback available soon. Meanwhile, click on the Amazon link to find the Kindle book.
Also, if you like the story, please leave a star rating and a review. The review may be as short as "I loved it" or as detailed as you wish. But it helps authors to have reviews on Amazon.
Thanks again for your support, and for your patience while I work on new stories as well as a full length novel (A Balm in Gilead expected out in 2021).
Meanwhile, stay safe and well. And don't forget to be kind.
