I’ve been busy the past few days! I realized that one of my favorite series–the Keepers of the Ring, a series about early American colonial history–was no longer available in paperback. So I pulled out those files, spruced them up a tiny bit (do you have any idea how many time I’d written “he stood to his feet? Aggghh!) and reformatted them. Then I had the fun and pleasure of designing new covers. I wouldn’t have even attempted this if I hadn’t taken an online class in basic graphic design. 🙂
So now the books are beginning to appear on Amazon.com and other online retailers. And yes, your local bookstores can order them, too, if you don’t want to get them online. Drop me a note if they have any problems. 🙂
So now I have on ly to finish Rehoboth and Charles Towne, and the series will once again be complete. The most fun of this has been skimming the stories as I reformat them–it has been so long since I wrote them (17 years!), that I had completely forgotten what most of the stories were about. But soon those old names began to register in my memory, along with my affection for the characters. I think they’re amazing tales because so much of them is based on actual history. Our nation has a fascinating–and often bloody–history, and the British invaders were not always the heroes. But people like John Eliot still make me shiver in admiration.
If you haven’t read these books, I hope you’ll check them out. And if you run across a “she stood to her feet,” please forgive the unnecessary words. 🙂
