I’m super excited to announce the beginning of a BRAND NEW Series!
This series is different—I bet you didn’t expect that, huh? 😉
The series name is Amish Romances Inspired by Beloved Bible Stories. Yeah, it’s kind of long but Amish Bible Stories sounded too much like a children’s book series to me.
It’s actually been on my mind and heart for quite some time. Since I’ve been bombarded with ideas lately, I knew it was time to write them.
But my big question was and is and will be, “Okay, Lord, how do I write these?”
Because if I’m going to write about, say, Solomon in an Amish context, I obviously can’t have an Amish man with seven hundred wives! That’s just not gonna fly with readers, LOL! Can you imagine?!
So, here’s the letter I’ll include in each book’s front matter:
This series is loosely based on stories of actual people who are mentioned in the Bible. These books are not necessarily retellings, although you will find quite a bit of similarities between the books and their Bible counterparts. I am, in no way, attempting to rewrite the Bible (God has done a fine job with it and He certainly doesn’t need my help!) nor am I depicting the true Biblical characters. The characters in my books are portrayed as Amish and there are some things contained in the actual Biblical accounts that simply cannot be included, due to Amish culture and customs. With that said, I hope that you will enjoy this series as it is, but I also hope that it will encourage you to go back and read the actual Bible stories themselves. There are so many truths contained in God’s Word that we can never even really scratch the surface of its depth. His mercy and grace are beyond measure.
I hope you’ll pick up a copy of An Amish Blessing, book one in the series, a story about a young woman named Ruth. If you enjoy it, please do let me know. I love to hear readers’ thoughts on the books.
If you’d like to read an excerpt of the book, please utilize Amazon’s Look Inside feature on the product page.
May this book (and all my others) be a blessing to you and bring glory to GOD!
Thanks for reading. <3
