Just got an image of the cool new cover for “Beyond the Smoke,” the new young adult western coming out from BJU Press in January. I like it a lot and I’m told that the young man on the cover is in high school, single and unattached. The back cover blurb reads:
They were all dead.
No one alive in the whole wagon train.
He was alone.
When Bryan Wheeler’s parents are killed by Comanche raiders, he wonders how he will survive without them. With a few supplies, two guns, and his mother’s Bible, he sets out to create a new life for himself in the western wilderness.
Beyond the Smoke is the story of one young man’s adventures in the Wild West.

I also just signed a contract with Treble Heart Books for A Promise Kept release date not yet announced but it will be in the coming year. I’m about half way through a ghostwriting job for a publisher that will be out in the coming year, without my name on it of course.
Even though I spend most of my time working for my clients, I am trying to keep my own writing alive.
