Again, thank you to everyone who entered! If you’re interested in purchasing my book, here is the link and the blurb.
Lieutenant Jean Hoff of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps and infantryman Corporal George Novak have never met, but they have three things in common.
They are both driven by a past they’d rather leave behind.
They have both been sent to the embattled beachhead of Anzio, Italy.
And when they both wind up on the wrong side of the German lines, they must choose whether to resign themselves to captivity or risk a dangerous escape.
Where Shall I Flee? follows their journey through the dangers of World War II Italy, where faith vies with fear and forgiveness may be necessary for survival.
I’ve already received reviews from some of my early readers. Here’s what they’re saying:
Whew. That was a busy October!
Now it’s November, and you may know what that means—I’m jumping right into a NaNoWriMo challenge with my students! No rest for the writerly…
Believe it or not, I used my first NaNoWriMo as a chance to jumpstart the first draft of Where Shall I Flee? so I guess it turned out to be worthwhile! This time around, I’m hoping to crank out another first draft. I don’t have a title in mind yet, but I’ve been chewing on a story idea for a while, set in the Philippines in December of 1941. Here’s hoping by the end of November I’ll be 50,000 words into it! If that stalls, I have a novella drafted out titled Pearl Harbor Ghosts that could use some work.
As I start those projects, I’m excited to have some guest bloggers posting on this site for the next two weeks. Authors Andrew McDowell and JPC Allen will be stopping by to share some writerly thoughts. Then I’ll return and we’ll see if I beat NaNo or if it beats me… either way, my students are all geared up to make me dress up again this year. We’ll see!
Thanks for visiting, and wishing you all the best!
