My Fantasy has been granted

Sad to update: Fantasy Island Book Publishing is now defunct. I'll keep you posted...

I am very pleased to announce that I have signed with Fantasy Island Book Publishing.  They are going to release Enchanted Heart on Amazon and Barnes and Noble and then they will be getting it ready to print!  It is scheduled to be on the book shelves for Christmas!  I am so excited to have this opportunity to work with such a great group of people and especially grateful to J. Darroll Hall for believing in me as a writer.  You will be able to buy the print book in stores soon or skip the store and buy it directly from their website.

My journey as a writer has been a long but delightful one.  And now, I have taken another avenue toward having my work in print.  I look forward to many more steps that will take me toward new and better horizons.  I invite you to join me and Fantasy Island Book Publishers on this wonderful adventure.

Here is a brief synopsis of the book:

After emigrating from Germany at the age of seven, Marty Hirsch watched her father die on the arduous journey from the coast of Texas to the new settlement in New Braunfels.  While Papa took his final breath, Marty assured him that she would fulfill the dream of owning the land that had been promised to him by the German Immigrant Society.  And while she watched her twin sister Greta and Mama trudging the many miles to their new home, Marty vowed right then and there to bring them happiness, no matter the cost to her own contentment.

As time passed, she struggled to fulfill that self-assigned task, but more tragedy assailed her in the form of miscarriages with her husband before he was killed in the Civil War.  When their cousin convinced her and Greta to move westward to the new German settlement at Fort Concho on the San Saba River, Marty was ready for a change in her life.  That change came when she encountered Aiden Kincaid McAllister, the handsome stranger who guided their wagon train to their new home.  She found herself falling hopelessly in love with the dark-haired, blue-eyed stranger.

But would that love last or would more tragedies cause Marty to give up on love altogether?
