Joy Comes in the Morning

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. ~ Psalm 30:5 KJV

When troubles lay like a heavy blanket on our souls, it’s difficult to believe the pain will end. Annabelle Cross, heroine of my latest novel, endures unbelievable pain after losing her husband and both sons in a tragic boating accident. Three years after the incident, she still suffers bouts of sadness and melancholy.

But for Annabelle, life is about to take a turn.

In the third and final installment of my Kinsman Redeemer series, Annabelle will discover that happiness is not as important as joy. Happiness is a dance on the surface, but joy is a deep dive into tranquil waters.

In a few short days, Annabelle’s Joy releases. I’m nervous and excited at the same time. I hope my readers will love where the journey ends.

If you’re on Facebook, I have started an event page for the release. It will be live for the week of August 7 (the release day) through August 14. You’ll find fun facts posted there, along with a couple of Annabelle’s favorite cookie recipes and maybe a quick game or two.

And of course, there will be prizes. You don’t have to buy anything to enter. You don’t even have to sign up for a newsletter. Just check in and leave a comment or two.

If you’ve read Annabelle’s Ruth and/or Sutter’s Landing (books 1 & 2), I hope you’ll stop by the event page and leave a short comment about the book.

This all begins on August 7, but before that time, my other books will be on sale–maybe even free on Kindle. So keep an eye on my Amazon author page!
