When Chicks Hatch is back on Amazon, available now in kindle format. I have taken feedback from previous readers into account. I also added a recipe at the back of the book. Order your copy today for just $3.99!
Here's my plan: When Chicks Hatch was always meant to be the first title in a series. When Chicks Hatch is Book 1 in the Chicks of Corbin Bridge Series. It's taken much longer than I hoped, due to publisher dramas, but the story isn't over. You're going to see more of these characters, so it's safe to fall in love.
I am currently rewriting When Chicks Hatch, expanding the story and changing the POV just a bit. I'm also creating a separate study guide for use in book clubs and women's groups. If you purchase the current version (in the works right now), you will get any updated content for free. You'll also receive a discount on the study guide when it comes out. You'll want that, trust me.
I'm currently working on my second novel, The Lemonade Stand.
SILVIA COVINGTON is out of her element. It all started when her neighbor announced her pregnancy and stirred up her mothering juices. Now she can’t help herself. Her running dialogue with God about the spiritual state of her now grown children becomes all consuming, fueled by the little one across the street who grows far too quickly. Suddenly, Silvia’s goal of restoring her children to their Christian faith and to maturity takes on new urgency. The problem: some people aren’t so easy to change, including Silvia. She’s about to learn that spiritual maturity isn’t marked by the increase of grey hairs, and isn’t a promise. Maturity is a lemon.
What will it take for her to find the vibrantbeauty in each moment? Will she slow down to enjoy the sweet aroma of every answered prayer?
Can she endure the sour pucker of growth that can change the heart?
The Lemonade Stand, was critiqued last week by Rene Gutteridge. I'm a crazy fan, so you have no idea how hard it was not to gush like a weirdo in front of her. She had outstanding feedback. I'm still on cloud nine to think that my writing made her laugh and scratch her head a bit at the realization that I am not a 58 year old grandma like Jennifer's neighbor, Silvia, of whom the second book revolves. She even called me out in her fiction class as a great example of "Grit, Wit and It". God is so good to me!
I do have some work to do to complete The Lemonade Stand, but I'm eager to do it. I'm invested.
Book 3 is already outlined and ready to go as soon as I complete The Lemonade Stand. I'm on a roll.
In the next 3 months, I'll be working to attract an agent. Everything matters. The fact that you're here, reading this and caring, matters.
