Working on Book 4 of Abby & Holly Series!

I apologize for not doing a post lately. I have been busy trying to finish up Book 4 of the Abby & Holly Series. I am having a fun time creating this latest book. The characters as usual are taking over the storyline. I never know where they are going to go. I may have to rein them in once again if they go off in the wrong direction.

Sometimes I have to concentrate on what is most important – getting the story completed over doing a post on my blog. I hope you will understand my situation right now.

I have been working on two books simultaneously. While I worked on Book 4 my husband worked on Book 1 of a dragon series. Together we completed this Book 1 and it is ready for publication for February 1, 2020.

Book 4 will be published sometime in February. Not sure of the exact date yet. I need to complete the last eight chapters and then send it along to my trusty Beta Readers for their views.

My husband will be doing the chapter heading illustrations on Book 4 and have them ready in a timely fashion. I will be sharing book covers and blurbs of both books soon. Of course, John created the covers for both books as usual, and has done a commendable job. I wouldn’t be able to do these without him.

Please check out all the books in the Abby & Holly Series to get into the characters and the storylines. The cousins are kind, caring, loving and respectful. They teach MG/PT/YA the importance of these attributes. This series has won three Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards and one Readers’ Favorite Book Award. This series is loved by both MG/PT/YA and parents and grandparents for the life lessons that it contains.

Each book in this series deals with current topics such as bullying, dealing with disappointments, family matters and their love and support.

Here is the link to the series on Amazon below and individually thereafter.They are also available on Barnes & Noble (all children’s books). You can also click on covers to the right of this post for purchase.

Book 3 above won a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award in December 2019.

Thank you so much for stopping by to read this post. If you love these books a review would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much for your support!


Blessings & Hugs!
