January: New Publisher Relationship
I've recently developed a relationship with PureRead Publishing in the UK. They specialize in Clean Christian Reads, which fully aligns with my values. So far, I've been able to work on two productions written by Terri Grace: The Wary Widow and the Oregon Trail Romance, and the Brothers of Buckaroo 2-in-1 Special Edition (a Mail Order Husband Historical Romance).

What she didn't expect was for Josiah Burkhalter to insist on helping her. Josiah might have been her childhood sweetheart but they've both changed a lot since then and Leah's not sure she can trust the man who once broke her heart.

Love Is by Kim Sorrelle
"Love is patient, love is kind, love is . . ." The words are so familiar they almost lack meaning, a Christianese version of "live, laugh, love." Even non-Christians are familiar with the Love Chapter of 1 Corinthians, read at weddings, painted on decorative signs, and preached regularly from the pulpit. But what happens when these verses are taken seriously? What would it take for someone to live out the Love Chapter as literally as possible?

2nd October Release: 27 Words
**Trigger Warning** This book deals with the difficult themes of bullying, teenage depression, attempted suicide and school violence. However, it also contains a message of hope and healing.
From the Publisher's Summary "I was deep in thought wondering how an auditorium could still smell the same 10 years later and how that one scent would always be ingrained in my mind when the clapping that waved across the room startled me back to reality. I smiled, took a deep breath of that familiar air, and began.
“Hello everyone. My name is Lily Calhoun. I was born 27 years ago. This is my hometown. I went to high school here. When I was 17 years old, I tried to kill myself. I failed. This is my story."
