With All My HeartMy Mom was kind of sad when she found out she could only ready my novella, Appalachian Serenade, digitally. My mother-in-law has yet to read it since she wouldn’t know how to read something on a screen.

But soon, the whole world will be able to hold Appalachian Serenade in their hands and turn the crisp pages. As a bonus, there will be four other novellas in the With All My Heart collection by some pretty fantastic authors.

I’m not sure which is more exciting, finally having a print copy of my novella, or being grouped with the likes of Karen Witemeyer, Jen Turano, Melissa Jagears, and Jody Hedlund!

With All My Heart is due out next summer, but in the meantime here’s a look at the cover. Bethany House aimed for a somewhat general image since all five stories deal with different heroines in varied time periods and settings.

I LOVE it. Mostly for the rhododendron spilling over a split rail fence.

Can you get any more Appalachian than that?!?
