Ruth’s Ginger Snap Surprise Releases Three Weeks from Friday!

Ruth's Ginger Snap Surprise

From the “Heart of the Amish” series, published by Barbour Publishing, comes Book Two of the series, which launched in September with Mindy Steele’s wonderful book, “The Flower Quilter”, which is set in Shipshewana, Indiana.

“Ruth’s Ginger Snap Surprise” is the second book in the series, and takes place in the fictional town of Willow Creek, in the real Holmes County, Ohio.

This is my first published book, and I couldn’t be more excited. It seems as if every day I get more thrilling information from my publisher about this amazing journey.

Most recently, I learned that my book will be part of a blog tour in a partnership between Barbour Publishing and Celebrate Lit!

“Ruth’s Ginger Snap Surprise” will be featured by a different Celebrate Lit blogger every day from December 9 to December 22!

I’ll post the blog post from the previous day each day during that period here, on my blog.

I’m so honored that all these people are going to read my book, and then take the time to post about it. Hopefully, they’ll all like it!

Here is a list of the bloggers who will feature my book on their popular blogs for a day:

Ouch! (That was just me, pinching myself again to make sure this is all real!)

Have you pre-ordered your copy of “Ruth’s Ginger Snap Surprise” yet? It’s available from a number of places, including, Barbour Publishing,,,, Barnes &, and in Christian bookstores! And I just discovered that my second book in the series, “Mary’s Calico Hope”, is ALSO available for pre-order. I’d be honored if you picked up a copy.

I’m doing a happy dance! 🙂
