No really, TODAY is the release day....

I received an email today from a cyber-friend in Maine, who said "Congrats on today's release date. I hope you sell a ton of books!!"

I was puzzled by her remarks because I thought my latest Amish Inspirational, "The Amish Animal Doctor," had been released a month ago. I even put up a blog post to that effect.

But my friend is right – the official release date is today. Duh, how did I get that mixed up?

Evidently release days make a difference. Here's a screenshot of my book's Amazon ranking from March 2:

And here's a screenshot from an hour or so ago:

Better numbers for sure!

Here's the back-cover blurb: "Will she give up what she loves – for who she loves? Forced to return home to care for her ailing mother, veterinarian Abigail Mast must make an impossible choice – between her career and her Amish community. And handsome neighbor Benjamin Troyer isn’t making the decision any easier for her. When an opportunity to stay in Montana presents itself, can Abigail come to a decision that will yield the greatest rewards?"

Here are some links to the book:




I got a lovely email from a reader who said one scene in particular made him cry because it hit him on a personal note. (Yes, him. A male reader.) I was so touched!

So today's my release date. Go figure. Clueless, that's me.


  1. I just started reading it--was trying to read on my phone while washing dishes at the same time, haha. Congratulations on your release date! I have been so looking forward to reading it.

  2. I received my copy yesterday and it looks great!

  3. I started reading it last night and couldn't put it down. Read half of it before I couldn't keep my eyelids open any longer. Hopefully will finish it tonight or tomorrow. I love your writing style and your topics! Tractorguy
