No one said that getting rights reverted, files scanned and cleaned and manuscripts updated would be easy, but you know what? 

Hard doesn't scare me! :) I kind of love it, I love a challenge which makes the release of this beautiful story even more exciting.

I hate to see stories sit idle... and that's what happens to older stories that aren't being re-released or reprinted by publishers. They sit, puffing dust, waiting for a chance to be held, read, nay... devoured again! So I was thrilled when the good folks at Love Inspired returned the rights to several of my early novels. 

It is so much fun to see them come to life again! To hear from new readers! To chat it up with folks about the Southern Tier or Wishing Bridge or the North Country and soon to come: Kirkwood Lake! 

I am so blessed! 

So next week.... "A Family to Cherish" releases!

Then a few weeks later we'll be announcing the release of "Love's a Mystery in Sleepy Hollow, NY", part of a new and wonderful contemporary romantic mystery series for Guideposts. I had the distinct pleasure of working with the wonderful Gabe Meyer on that novella pairing!

Then the next story will release in September. That one is  "The Lawman's Second Chance", a bestselling and award-winning story that's won hearts across the land. 

And then "Reclaiming Hope in Wishing Bridge" hits the shelves in late October, about the time that pumpkin love and mania quiets down here in Western New York... writing takes over those extra hours. :)

And that wonderful book should be followed by the contemporary story in "Love's a Mystery in Cut and Shoot, Texas", a wonderful Christmas story coupled with Janice Thompson's historical novella!

I am so excited to share this news with you. To share this book with you! And I have two copies to give away (these are Kindle copies, the paperback will be available in two weeks) and I'd love to hear what you think... 

Today we celebrate! Today we toast the release of a book from captivity, LOL! And I'm thrilled to bring the updated edition of this story to you for Kindle at $2.99 and then paperback at $7.99.



So let's celebrate new books! I've brought sweet tea, trays of bars, ice-cold lemonade and a fresh pot o' joe... no matter what part of the country you call home, we've got something wonderful and amazing... and timeless.... here for you!


Bestselling and award-winning inspirational author Ruth Logan Herne is currently living, breathing and talking pumpkins, squash and 3000 chrysanthemums on her popular pumpkin farm in Western New York.
