This latest book is #34 for me. When I say that, I kind of can't believe it. THIRTY-FOUR BOOKS. I've written 34 books! Me? Lyn Cote?
At one time, I joked that I had been rejected by every editor in NYC. A bit of an exaggeration, but not much!
It's hard when you find yourself writing for a market that hasn't appeared yet. I was writing inspirational romance before it had found its audience and success. I'm so happy that so many other authors have found a home in this genre and with Love Inspired.
Anyway my 34th book, Her Healing Ways, debuts this week--at your local Wall-Mart or bookstore. Or if you like to order online, drop by my website.
Here's the scoop:
Unconventional. Unafraid. Unwelcome. A female physician with an adopted black daughter? The townsfolk of Idaho Bend will never accept Dr. Mercy Gabriel—even when faced with a deadly cholera epidemic. But all Mercy needs is one man willing to listen…and to trust.
Four years of war command turned Lon Mackey into a footloose gambler who can't abide attachments. Yet he can't help getting riled by the threats Mercy keeps receiving. Her trailblazing courage could reignite his faith and humanity. And his loyalty could make her dream—for the first time—of a family of her own….
Have any of you read the first two books in my Gabriel Sisters series? Her Captain's Heart and Her Patchwork Family? I loved writing this series:
"In the wake of the Civil War, three women combat injustice and find true love."
So again--is it pride? And what are you proud of?
BTW, Drop by my blog tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec 7th. I'm making an important announcement!
