Update: First edits from my editor are done and the manuscript is back with the editor for round 2, the artist is still working on the book cover to make it shine. Haven't heard from her, so I'd appreciate some prayer about this. A book trailer in the process of being made. Book launch for the novella is still planned on November 29th, with the Facebook Book Launch Party on the 30th. Hope you'll all come to hear more about the story, and have a chance to get one of the giveaways being offered.
Hope you all will enjoy this story. It's been fun to write it my first novella.
Blurb from back of book cover:
Would life ever be the same for Alanna after the only man she’d ever loved died? A dog, a cat, and a handsome doctor cross her path and fill the void…at least for a while. The pets go missing, and she wonders about the doctor when he does too. But not until after he’s kissed her like no other man had ever kissed her, setting her heart on fire.
A former coworker who is determined to win her adds more stress to her life.
Should she give up her dream of a happy life in America, leave the home her husband and she shared for ten years, and go back to Ireland?
Book Cover not finalized yet.
About Sharon K Connell
My Fairy Garden
Born in Wisconsin, lived there five days until my Irish father decided to move to Chicago, Illinois, following jobs in his trade as a carpenter. There, for most of my young life, I grew up and attended school through college. In 1988, I moved to Pensacola, Florida to attend Bible school. My residence remained there for just under twenty years after graduation from Pensacola Bible Institute. However, I have visited all but six states in our beautiful country and love to mention some of my discoveries during my travels in my stories.
During my working career, I held clerical positions in the medical field and in advertising of one sort or another. In 2013, I retired from the work force and moved to Houston, Texas, where I now enjoy every minute of my writing career.
Today, my hours are spent writing stories about people who discover (as I have) that God will allow things in your life that will help you grow and/or increase your faith. I hold a certificate in fiction writing from the International Writing Program through the University of Iowa. My genre is Christian Romance Suspense in general, but I do write short stories in other genres as well.
While waiting for editing to be completed on my writing or a proof to arrive before publishing, I enjoy painting. You can see some of my artwork in The Art Gallery on this site.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
At the age of twelve, February 1958, I asked the Lord Jesus Christ to be my Savior. I’ve never been sorry that I made that decision. He has always been there for me.
There have been times in my life that I wasn’t faithful to Him, but He’s always been faithful to me. Someday, I will see him face to face. I look forward to that time. Just to be in His Presence.
Today, in everything I do, whether it’s writing or otherwise, I seek His guidance with prayer. I’ve learned through the years that it’s the best way to live. It brings peace and joy into my life. I hope you have that peace and joy.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6
If you’ve never trusted my Lord Jesus Christ to save you. Do it now before it’s too late. There will be a time when that salvation is no longer available to you. Don’t take a chance.
I was a wee lost sheep when Jesus found me. I cried out to him, and He saved me. And He's kept me in the palm of His hand ever since.
Launch Party scheduled for November 30th
