Left to Die Prize Pack

 

 

Left to Die is RELEASED!!!

 

It’s out! Or, at least…it should be. Amazon was not cooperating, so there might be a few delays. Never fear–it will be soon.

(And no, I am not panicking. Of course I’m not freaking out. And yes, all my hair is still on my head. Well…most of it anyway.)

*ahem*

Yeah, this release has been rather stressful. There have been tears. There has been pillow-punching. There has been crying into the pillow that was punched. (No one ever said the author life was easy, folks.)

But…

The show must go on. There’s nothing I can do about the problems at the moment, so an error-ridden book there shall be until the end of this week!

 

Okay. Honesty-fest is over. *scrapes up remaining bits of professionalism*

 

I’m proud to introduce you to my latest novella, Left to Die.

 

 

About the Book:

Lindy Greene’s life is perfect. Too perfect. But living as a missionary nurse, serving in a small hospital in China, soon brings the disaster she fearfully anticipates. All of her well-thought-out plans for the future disintegrate after pulling a fatally ill, disfigured, abandoned child from a pile of trash. She doesn’t even like babies.

Nathan Thomas can’t find balance. College suited him just fine until his cash ran out, forcing him to the Chinese mission field with his parents. The chaotic atmosphere in China does little to relax his agitated mind, and the pretty blonde nurse at the hospital does nothing to help him focus.

The Chinese mission field isn’t for the faint of heart. Nathan wonders how he can survive his remaining time there, while Lindy struggles to help everyone she can. With different ideals pulling them in separate directions, there is one thing drawing them together: a tiny, sickly, crippled orphan who relies on them to stay alive.

Announcement and Reveal

*GASP*

Can you believe I’ve kept my mouth shut about a project for an entire four months?!?! Believe me, I don’t come from the strongest line of secret keepers. (*ahem ahem ahem* *cough cough* Love you, Mom!!!)

 

blog-thing

 

But yes, I have kept a secret. (My beta readers even kept the secret!!!)

 

Am I driving you crazy yet? I hope so. *evil author laugh*

 

The secret is…

A LOVELY NEW BOOK!!!

 

In a little less than two months, on January 23th, you’re all going to get a chance to read my latest baby. This sweet novella that is very dear to my heart. The topic is so precious to me, I can only hope some of that leaks out onto the pages. I love this story so much. But you’ll have to read the ‘author’s note’ in the back to learn what makes it so special to me.

(There, someone be proud of me. That was a very nice marketing slip. *pats self on back*) (*laughs at self* I’ll probably end up accidentally mentioning the reason at some point in time.)

It’s already been through beta readers, is in the hands of endorsers (or endorsementers…or endorsarinos…whatever they are called), and is headed to the editor this weekend. Talk about a whirlwind!

Oh, you probably want to see the cover, huh? *wink*
