Waiting On Wednesday

WoW is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases that are anxiously awaited.

I know that my WoW post is day late, but aside from books and stories that I've already posted about, I couldn't really think of what I was waiting for. UNTIL I took a journey on over to a friend's blog; Writing To Distraction. Carla Gade, over at Writing to Distraction, is a Christian historical romance novelist. She has two projects debuting in 2012. The first is called The Shadow Catcher's Daughter which is book number 1 in the Love In Four Corners series (other authors doing books 2 and 3). Release date is January of 2012..

NOW... Today's post is about her second project. A collection of novellas by various artists set to debut in May of 2012 (too far!!), Colonial Courtships features Carving a Future by Carla. Here's the description for this particular novella: "Carving a Future (1752): Ship figurehead carver Nathaniel Ingersoll has apprenticed for many years under his Uncle Phineas and hopes to become a master ship carver in his own right. Constance Starling was spirited away from England to the Connecticut coast as an indentured servant, arriving too ill for anyone to accept her. When Nathaniel takes pity on her, he purchases her contract. Has he jeopardized the future he has worked so hard to achieve for the welfare of a weakly servant?" .

And here's the lovely cover:

Isn't it beautiful? I love the expression on her face. I wonder what she's thinking about. I can't wait for EITHER of her stories to come out. I absolutely love historical fiction (and just history in general) and the fact that it's a Christian historical romance novel just makes it all the more exciting (The Heirs of Cahira O'Connor series comes to mind in this category as well, by Angela Elwell Hunt). I know it's going to be a great read. They both will be. When the time comes you should definitely check it out. Carla is just an overall outstanding person and I know these won't disappoint if they're anything like her!
