SilentNight 195x300

Did you know there's a new Rock Harbor digital novella releasing in a week?!! I'm so excited the time is almost here to see what you think about Silent Night. It was incredibly fun for me to go back to Rock Harbor. In fact, that story almost wrote itself. This has been a year of immersion back in Rock Harbor. Thomas Nelson is bringing out new covers for all the books, I wrote the new novella, and my friend Robin Caroll and I are working on a series for middle grade readers set in Rock Harbor (think Harry Potter as far as age group--so Rock Harbor fans will want to read it for sure too.) It's titled Rock Harbor Search and Rescue, and it features Emily, the girl lost in the woods with her brother in Without a Trace. Of course Bree and Samson are in it too!

Here's the link for Silent Night at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble. And even if you don't have an e-reader, you can download a free computer version of the Kindle or Nook to your computer and read it there. Let me know what you think after you read it! 

So that brings me to my question of the day. Is there a particular series you'd really love to see more of? I'm planning a trip to Nashville in 3 weeks to discuss future projects. I've got some new series ideas, but if there's a hue and cry for something from an existing series, I'd love to hear it. :)

One idea I have is to take the young girl from the Mercy Falls series (her mother had tuberculosis, just to jog your memory) and put her into service at one of the Great Camps in the Adirondacks. Like maybe Sagamore. It would be a sort of American version of Downtown Abbey. :) And I thought it might be fun to bridge one series into another. 

And I have some ideas for a new contemporary series too. Do you read both my historical and contemporary series or do you have a preference? Would love to get your feedback!

Thrilled to see a return to Rock Harbor. I loved your Hawaii series too. Of course, I love Hawaii. I love your sharing about the islands in stories. Just a thought.

I love the series that involves Texas! Of course the Wabash info was delightful but I hunger for more BBQ, sand in my teeth and horses... oh yeh....

I prefer your Contemporary series and I would LOVE to see more of the Smoke Jumpers. I loved Fire Dancer and would love to see more in that series.

My next novella is in the Aloha Reef series, Sandy! Nelson is getting ready to give them new covers and I'm going to freshen them up.

Love the way you put that, Sandy! LOL

Kelly Jo, I loved Fire Dancer too. I'd like to write Buck's story.

Yea! I love hearing that you are doing another Aloha Reef book. Let me know if you need a Hawaii expert again. :)

The cover for Silent Night looks fantastic! Can't wait to read it.

I'm so excited about your projects for middle grade readers. My two oldest boys love to read. They like anything with action/adventure so I thought a spin-off of your Lonestar series would be fun for them. I don't have any girls, but I thought a Mercy Falls series for young girls would be a great idea. I'm thinking Nancy Drew meets American Girl. (I loved mysteries like Nancy Drew when I was a kid).

Also, I loved your novella "Storm Warning." I loved the danger, the action, and the romance in between. A new series like that would be fun!

I would love to read some more of your suspense stories. Rock Harbor is my very favorite and then your Aloha Reef series!
Thank you for all your hard work:).

I love all your books, but my favorites are the contemporary novels.

Will the Aloha Reef novella also be a real book, not just a pretend one?! So frustrated that I can't buy Silent Night because I don't do Nook or Kindle and not sure my computer could handle the download
