I just received the word from my publisher, Prairie Rose Publications. My novella, Big Meadows Valentine, is available for pre-order on Amazon for Kindle.

Access the Amazon pre-order link HERE.

The date it is estimated to be released is February 4th. The book should be available for purchase from B & N Nook and Smashwords then.

This story is the first in my "Eastern Sierra Brides 1884" series. I like how my publisher added the sub-title to the book cover.

This story may be enjoyed anytime of the year, but I am so happy it is being released in time for Valentine's Day.

Cover Reveal: Big Meadows Valentine

I'm so pleased to reveal my cover for my novella, Big Meadows Valentine to be published by Prairie Rose Publications. I don't have a release date yet, but I expect it to be within the next few weeks.

As you may have guessed, this story is being released now in honor of Valentine's Day. However, it may be enjoyed any time of the year.

The background image for this book is from some of my own photographs taken while on a research/photo taking trip to Mono County, California. This picture is of the meadows area north of Bridgeport on the eastern slope of the Sierra-Nevada Mountains.

As indicated by the tag line, "In the gold mining town of Lundy, only chickens will win her heart," the bulk of the story takes place up in the mountains in the mining town of Lundy.

This is the first novella in a series I call "Eastern Sierra Brides 1884." For updates when this book will be available, sign up to follow this blog. If you are on Facebook, please "Like" my "Eastern Sierra Brides 1884" page.
