Bookish Blessings!

This past week I've had a number of bookish blessings! My new release, Mercy in a Red Cloak, is now out in paperback and I got my first copies! It is price low for July, below its regular retail price--only $3.99, a bargain!  Also available in Kindle. Currently has a 4.5 Star rating, praise the Lord!
Also, it is the two year anniversary of the release of My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island. What a delightful surprise to learn that my Maggie Award Winning novel and Romantic Times Book Reviews Top Pick was available at the ultra low sales price of 99 cents!!! That's a steal. A lovely benefit was that Maude's story then went into the top 100 Inspirational Romances on Amazon (that's a high category even than the Inspirational Historical Romances, so a huge blessing!). As of right now (you need to check if it is still on sale) you can still purchase the ebook for only 99 cents!

I also got a proposal out to my agent and it's ready to go to the publisher for possible approval. And for another proposal, for a Women's Fiction novel, my friend Diana Flowers, a former contributor to this blog, brainstormed some great tweaks to my story. And she's agreed to be a Beta Reader!

I sure miss my PA, Regina Fujitani's help with my newsletters but I did finally get one out this week. IF you aren't a subscriber, be sure to send a request through my sign up form (click here.)

I've also visited on the HHHistory blog, taking Kathleen L. Maher's spot this month, and I also have a giveaway there.  Click here to read my post about the Siege of Detroit and leave a comment. Watch for an upcoming review by Tina Rice and giveaway on Colonial Quills blog, too!

I leave for Michigan on Wednesday and have a busy two weeks planned. I have a book signing scheduled at the Island Bookstore on Main Street on Mackinac Island on Thursday, July 18th, from 1-3 pm.  I would love to see you there! I'm researching two novels while I am there, one set in the Straits and the other on Lake Superior.

Giveaway: A paperback or kindle copy of Mercy in a Red Cloak. Leave an encouraging comment to enter!


  1. I purchased the Kindle version of My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island the other day and Mercy in a Red Cloak is on my to-read list! I am a Minnesota girl so I am looking forward to your book set on Lake Superior, too.

  2. I would love to read Mercy in a Red Cloak! I've been waiting for it to come out in paper back form since I don't have a Kindle. If, I'm not a winner I will be ordering it.
    Carrie, have a great two weeks!

  3. I absolutely loved Mercy in a Red Cloak! So glad you are heading for the Mackinac area to relax, research and sign books. Your attention to detail makes one feel like they are right there! I would love to win a paperback book - thanks for the opportunity. :)

  4. I have added MERCY IN A RED COAT to my reading list. I like the look and sound of this.

  5. Love the cover of Mercy In A Red Coat.

  6. Congratulations, Carrie, on your new book baby, Mercy in A Red Coat!!! what a beautiful cover and the synopsis sounds great! Thanks for the chance to win a copy!!! ~ Alison Boss

  8. Carrie, I hope you have a fantastic trip. Enjoy doing your research and I'm praying your time in Michigan is productive for the books you are planning to write in the future. I already own Mercy in Kindle and paperback. Well, I will have the paperback as soon as my mail arrives today!

  9. Congrats on your new book Carrie, it sounds like a great read! I have enjoyed seeing your pics so far of your trip. I went to Lake MI this week, but have yet to make it up north yet. Enjoy the rest of your time in Michigan!
