A Sparkling Vintage Life

UPDATE: Feb 1, 2022. HAPPY LAUNCH DAY! We have our winners! Congratulations to Lori Smanski and Kathy West for being our randomly-selected winners. I’ll be contacting each of you to send you a copy of LUMBERJACKS & LADIES. Thank you all for participating!


As you can see from this photo, snapped from my living-room window, it’s deepest wintertime here in snow country–the perfect time to cozy up with a heartwarming historical romance novella. Well, why not FOUR of them? After all, northern winters tend to be long, cold, and dark . . . all the better for reading. (And if it happens to be high summer where you are, let these cool, pine-scented stories refresh your spirit.)

LUMBERJACKS & LADIES is a collection of four historical romance novellas from four authors you’ve come to love (or will love very soon, I promise): Naomi Musch, Candice Sue Patterson, Pegg Thomas, and of course, yours truly. The stories are set in Maine (1851), Michigan (1865), Wisconsin (1881), and Idaho (1890) and are sure to delight your romance-loving heart.

LUMBERJACKS & LADIES is set to release on February 1–just in time for Valentine’s Day–and is now available for pre-order. To celebrate the launch, I’d like to give away 2 copies to 2 loyal readers! To enter, simply leave a comment below. On February 1 I’ll pick two commenters at random and mail a book to each (or an e-book, if you’re outside the United States).

Happy reading!
