Cover Reveal: Shattered Reaction

I am so excited to share the cover for the second book in my series, The Shattered Lands. First, about the book and then we’ll get to the best part.

About the Book

War darkens the horizon…

In the wake of destruction, revenge drives Arioch en Kyrida to hunt down the man responsible for destroying half his village. His search leads him to a town where truth is hoarded and secrets lurk in every corner. Solely focused on making his target pay, Arioch cares little for the whispers of approaching evil until he is strongarmed into helping protect one of his most recent nemeses. If Anthi Klarkson doesn’t drive him insane—and if he manages to keep her alive long enough—they may be able to help stop the incoming war in its tracks. But someone wants Anthi dead, and they’ll do anything to achieve that mission.

Zinnia Klarkson wants nothing more than peace for her mourning family, but nearby attacks, kidnappings, and rumors of impending war steal all hope of a quiet life. When a mostly-dead man lands on her doorstep, hunted and without strong chance of survival, she is thrust into a covert operation that threatens her family’s safety. As secrets grow and answers remain veiled, Zinnia must choose between helping a ragtag group of reluctant allies or keeping her family out of harm’s path.

Trust must mend what was once shattered and courage must be sought as a second All Lands War threatens to decimate the six lands.

Shattered Reaction is a New Adult Christian fantasy fairy tale retelling.

About the Book

A most unusual proposal…

Alone in 1870s Idaho Territory, Paisley Abbott has nowhere to turn. With no other options, she finds herself consenting to an unconventional, but mutually beneficial agreement.

During an unplanned return to his family’s farm, prodigal Tyler Shepherdson inherits three orphans. When Tyler finds a woman hiding in the back of his wagon, an idea begins to form and he makes a rash decision that results in perhaps one of the most spontaneous marriages of convenience ever.

Despite an unorthodox beginning to their marriage, will Paisley and Tyler trust God as they forge ahead to create a home for three children? Will love arise from a desperate situation?

In the first book in the Horizon Series, travel to the late 1800s to the town of Horizon in the Idaho Territory with a cast of unforgettable characters, journeys of faith, and abundant humor.

Coming soon, the newest series by the author of the Wyoming Sunrise, Love Letters from Ellis Creek, and Montana Skies Christian Historical Romance Series.

Cover Reveal: Trouble in Dry Springs

I am excited to participate in friend and fellow author, Kristina Hall’s, cover reveal for her upcoming Christian Historical Western, Trouble in Dry Springs. And, because I’m such a kind, amazing, and lovely blogger, I’m making you wait ’til the very end to see the cover.


Kristina Hall is a sinner saved by grace who seeks to glorify God with her words. She is a homeschool graduate and holds a degree in accounting. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading, arm wrestling, lifting weights, and playing the violin.








Even the peaceful town of Dry Springs is not without trouble.

When Eliza McCoslin’s brother sends for her, she exchanges war-torn Mississippi for Dry Springs, Texas. Settling into a new way of life proves difficult though, despite the arrival of the man she’s long admired.

Jesse Carrigan comes to Dry Springs seeking work and a place to start the ranch he’s dreamed of ever since his parents lost their farm. What he doesn’t expect to find is the woman he’d like to court—or his former colonel on the run from a deadly threat.

Given the circumstances keeping Jesse and Eliza apart and the danger looming on the horizon, he and Eliza find themselves facing the loss of future love—and life. When trouble comes to Dry Springs, who will be left standing?


Being the font snob that I am, it tickles my designer’s heart to see Cinzel Decorative.

Isn’t that a lovely cover? Have you added this to your TBR yet? And have you ever visited Texas? I haven’t, and I have no desire to, but I certainly don’t mind reading books taking place there.

KEY Cover Reveal

Today is the cover reveal for the next installment in The Redwyn Chronicles. For those who’ve read IRON, you may remember a certain stepbrother named Denton. KEY is his story, and it’s been quite an adventure both to write and put him through.

I have bad news, though. This book ain’t gonna be a novella. Right now, it’s 45,000 in and is looking like it’ll be a 70-80,000 word novel.

I just love it when my characters rebel.

And because I’m such a wonderful person, I’m making you wait ’til the very end to see the actual cover. For now, enjoy the quote at the beginning of this post.


When Nerissa Wessen finds an unconscious man near her village, she knows one thing: trouble is on its way. What she doesn’t anticipate is the stranger’s charming smile—or the reason why he’s in her land in the first place.

Detective Denton Yindell wants only to put his past behind him and make good on a failed promise. When unforeseen circumstances place him on the doorstep of the very people who can help, Denton must convince the distrustful villagers to assist him.

But good intentions can bring about disastrous consequences, and when Denton’s past hunts him down, Nerissa’s family and village are threatened. Can two hearts—one wary and one wounded—learn to trust before evil eradicates those who oppose it?

KEY is a Christian Fantasy Fairytale Retelling


Releases: March 28, 2023

Series: The Redwyn Chronicles

Genre: Christian Fantasy

Age: New Adult 

Retelling: Rapunzel


-Addresses Human Trafficking

– There will be violence, but as usual, nothing gratuitous

– Two POVs.

– There is no profanity whatsoever; the author’s great-grandma could read this book without squirming.

KEY is a Christian story. It includes faith, prayers, Bible verses, references to faith, and discussions about faith. I hold true to the Biblical facts that the world was created in SIX days and that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way, truth, and life. If this offends you, KEY is not the book for you.

It’s very blue, isn’t it?

KEY isn’t your typical Rapunzel retelling, but I can promise there are towers carved from cliffs, nefarious intentions, and plenty of action.

God only gives so many wake-up calls… Will she answer?

Survival on the prairies of 1850s Texas is full of hardship and tragedy. Felicia “Felix” Taylor would know. Raising her sisters, running the farm, and connecting with her neighboring friends keeps her grounded. But when the providential and the coincidental occur, how will she respond? Will she acknowledge that it may be the God she turned her back on? Will she let Him in? Or will she steal her heart against the faith that betrayed her?

Cover Reveal

Congratulations, Abbigail! A cover reveal is always an event worthy of celebration, but even more so for your debut.

Cover Reveal: Dreams of the Heart

Today is the cover reveal for Dreams of the Heart by Penny Zeller, which is Book Two in Zeller’s Wyoming Sunrise series. (My review of the prequel, my review of the first book). This is an utterly gorgeous cover, and I think it will fit the story perfectly.


Penny Zeller is known for her heartfelt stories of faith and her passion to impact lives for Christ through fiction. While she has had a love for writing since childhood, she began her adult writing career penning articles for national and regional publications on a wide variety of topics.

Today Penny is a multi-published author of over a dozen books. She is also a homeschool mom and a group fitness instructor. Her desire is to assist and nurture women into a closer relationship with Christ.

When Penny is not dreaming up new characters, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters and camping, hiking, canoeing, reading, running, gardening, and playing volleyball.

Sometimes the hardest battles take place in the heart.

Poverty and abuse at the hands of her drunkard father leaves Hannah Bane trapped and alone. Without hope, she prays for a miracle just on the off-chance God will hear her. Will the handsome new deputy, who seems to be watching her every move, be Hannah’s one chance to escape the only life she’s ever known?

For as long as he can remember, John Mark Eliason has wanted to be a deputy sheriff. When a job opens in the nearby town of Poplar Springs, he eagerly accepts, but finds his greatest mission won’t be tracking down criminals and bringing justice to the ruthless Wyoming town, but saving a beautiful young woman he barely knows.

Will an unexpected answer to a difficult situation show how love can endure—and even thrive—in an unconventional situation? Or will fear and uncertainty keep two hesitant hearts apart?

In the sequel to Forgotten Memories, author Penny Zeller weaves a tender tale of faith, romance, and humor in a memorable story that reminds us God hears every prayer and has a plan for every life.

*Ignore the two ratings. Those are from vile spammers and trolls who are heaps of manure.

Have you read the other two books in this series yet? And are you excited for John Mark’s story? What are your favorite historical romance tropes? What do you think of the cover? (The topmost graphic is from the book’s A+ content.)

Cover Reveal: Where Faith Remains

I am woefully late on posting this, and my deepest apologies to Joy.


1968: Though severely depressed and haunted by the demons that attack him day and night, amputee Russell Campbell has the will to live for one little girl who needs him: Eliza, the orphaned baby of a fallen comrade. When he adopts Eliza as his daughter, a miracle happens—he experiences the love he never thought possible. Through little Eliza, the only person to ever love him unconditionally, the Lord begins to heal his heart, although the demons don’t go away.

1975: Seven-year-old Eliza Campbell has everything, because to her, her adoptive father is everything. She loves him more than anything in the world—the man whose tender heart and gentle hand guide her in Christ. Eliza knows she and her papa don’t belong anywhere, except with each other. Others think they make an odd pair—a little black girl and a white Vietnam War veteran with battle scars both seen and unseen.

Russell has always taught Eliza that Jesus brings healing, but then tragedy strikes. Eliza’s earth is shattered, for her worst fear may just come true: a scary diagnosis might tear her father away from her forever. Why would Jesus let this happen, if He really loves and cares for them as Russell says He does? Is He really to be trusted? Or is it possible that the darkness can be a place where faith remains?With themes of trauma and healing, forgiveness and redemption, light overcoming the darkness, and racial equality, Where Faith Remains is a tender and deeply moving adoptive love story. It’s the first novel in Russell & Eliza, Joy C. Woodbury’s Christian family saga about the legacy of their love.


And now for the cover!

Congratulations, Joy, on your cover reveal!

Can two broken people ever find redemption?

Lorcan Mactíre has been waiting patiently for nearly ten years to seize a cochall’s magic ring. Taking Roshien’s grandmother hostage, he lures Roshien to his fortress and holds her captive, confident that he will soon uncover her ring’s secret.

Is this Roshien’s opportunity for redemption? Can she somehow convince Lorcan to let her go—and maybe even take him with her? Or is this the beginning of her ultimate failure?
