Spring is time for the bulbs to sprout, the robins to appear, and for us to return home to Pennsylvania after a winter in the south. We didn’t time it perfectly this year, though, as it started to snow just about the time we got the heat on and the car unpacked! We enjoyed our warm winter weather in South Carolina, but we’re glad to be home. It’s time we got back into all our usual activities. For my husband, that means a round of civic meetings and responsibilities and for me, a return to teaching Sunday School, helping out at church, and catching up with my friends.
I’m so glad you stopped by to visit the website dedicated to my inspirational romances—my Amish romances published by Berkley Books, inspirational romances published by Love Inspired, and my Amish Suspense novels published by HQN Books. Nothing gives me more pleasure than hearing from readers, so I hope you’ll e-mail me. I’ll be happy to reply with a signed bookmark and my free brochure of Pennsylvania Dutch recipes if you’ll send me your mailing address. Since I come from a long line of women who were only happy when they were feeding people, I enjoy sharing recipes. You’ll also find some on the recipe page of this site.
I’ve just finished writing the second book in my new Pleasant Valley series from Berkley Books. This will be a two-book mini-series called The Lost Sisters of Pleasant Valley. Book One, coming out in June, is LYDIA’S HOPE, and Book Two, releasing February of 2014, is SUSANNA’S DREAM. The Lost Sisters of Pleasant Valley is about three Amish sisters who were separated when they were very young. It was fascinating to create this series, and you’ll find many friends from earlier Pleasant Valley books popping up in the pages.
The Amish suspense series from HQN Books is doing well. HOME BY DARK came out in January, SEARCH THE DARK comes out in October, and the third book, ABANDON THE DARK will be out next year.
In addition, I hope you’ll look for an anthology from Love Inspired Suspense, DANGER IN AMISH COUNTRY, coming out in October. I think you’ll enjoy the three suspense novellas with an Amish setting. My story is titled, FALL FROM GRACE.
You can see my schedule of appearances, as well as read my ramblings about country life and the Plain People, by checking out my blog. Look for me on Facebook at Marta Perry Books, where I enjoy chatting with readers. I’d love to hear from you.
