I wish to share the beautiful cover for my short story (15,000 words, not quite a novella, but just right for the busy holiday season coming up) titled A Christmas Promise. It is scheduled to be released on November 6th by Prairie Rose Publications.
There are some tidbits about this story:
After twenty years in the cavalry, a sergeant at Fort Laramie plans to muster out of the Army in order to go into ranching--and start a family. A new widow, grateful to have work as a housekeeper, struggles to provide Christmas gifts for her two children. An eleven year-old boy, still fiercely loyal to the dead father who neglected him while alive,endeavors to learn how to grow to be a man. A younger sister is starved for the attention and affection only a father can give. This heartwarming tale of a bleak Christmas set in 1873 Wyoming tells of the gift of second chances and a promise for a brighter future.
