January Update

If you follow me on Facebook, by now you’ve heard that I have another novel contracted to be released September 2017!

I am so excited about this book, The Forgotten Girl. It is very different from my regency writings. This new novel is set in the early 1900s and follows a young girl named Stella as she immigrates to the United States from Russian-ruled Poland. It’s a story of strength, survival, and hope. Of course I had to add a bit of romance in it, but this book is primarily Stella’s story and not necessarily focused on the romance. The Forgotten Girl was an emotional journey to write, and I am hoping that my readers will enjoy the ride as well!

Now that my novella is off to the printers and my new novel has found a home with my editors, I find I finally have time to imagine something new. Creating a new story and characters is my favorite part about writing. Some authors love to edit. I admire that. Most of writing is editing after all. But I crave the creation process. I absolutely love it. So, for the next few months I will be in creation paradise– creating a new world, characters, plots and so on.

In the meantime, have you read Mischief and Manors by Ashtyn Newbold? Or To Suit a Suitor by Paula Kremser? I absolutely loved these books! I can’t wait to read Mandi Ellsworth’s Uneasy Fortunes, too, especially after reading her novella. It was such a fun read! It’s nice to relax and read a story every once in a while. It’s so refreshing, and it inspires my sometimes burned-out-writer’s soul.

Upcoming Release and Blog Tour

About the authors:

Heather Chapman: Being the youngest of four sisters (and one very tolerant older brother), Heather grew up on a steady diet of chocolate, Jane Austen, Anne of Green Gables, Audrey Hepburn, and the other staples of female literature and moviedom. These stories inspired Heather, and she began writing at a young age. After meeting and marrying her husband Mark, Heather graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University and settled down in a small farming community with her husband and four children. In her spare time, Heather enjoys volleyball, piano, the outdoors, and just about anything creative.

Mandi Ellsworth: Mandi is an avid reader, a slow jogger, and disinterested in board games of any kind. She lives in Utah with her husband, three children and no pets.

Paula Kremser: Paula Kremser focused on a career in science for a few years after graduating from Brigham Young University. Several years later when she moved with her young family to England, Paula seized the opportunity to focus on her love of the Regency Era. The enchantment of the aristocracy and the fascinating stories from every stately home she visits have been both research and inspiration for her first novel, “Sophia,” and second, “To Suit a Suitor.”

Ashtyn Newbold: Ashtyn Newbold discovered a love of writing early in high school. Inspired by regency period romance, she wrote her first novel at the age of sixteen. Because she can’t vacation in her favorite historical time periods, she writes about them instead. When not crafting handsome historical heroes, she enjoys baking, sewing, music, and spoiling her dog. She dreams of traveling to England and Ireland. Ashtyn is currently studying English and creative writing at Utah Valley University. She lives in Lehi, Utah with her family and is the author of “Mischief and Manors.”
