|Ruins of a church I visited last year in
S.C. It was burned by the British during
the Revolution, and by the Yankees
during the American Civil War.
Hard to believe that just one year ago this week I was in South Carolina launching my new novel Noble Cause.
The official launch date was April 12, which coincided with the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the American Civil War. And the city that I did the launch was of course historic Charleston, S.C., where the first shots of the War Between the States were fired.
Since then, I have met hundreds of wonderful people at book signings, and participated in the Amelia Island Book Festival in Amelia Island, Fla., as a Featured Author. Noble Cause has surpassed all expectations by winning the coveted John Esten Cooke Award for Southern Fiction and the Next Generation Award for Regional Fiction.
It was also just announced last week that it is a Finalist in Foreword Magazine’s Book of the Year contest in the Romance category.
fiction novel Noble Cause.
In order to celebrate both the one-year anniversary and the coinciding Confederate History Month, I am sharing the great success of my historical fiction novel by offering it as a free download on Amazon on April 11 and 12.
Since releasing this announcement, I am happy to announce that Noble Cause on Kindle has moved to #4 on the Amazon bestseller list in the Historic category! I’m hoping to get it to #1, so please pass on the link to your friends, readers and Civil War enthusiasts!
Thanks to all of my followers and readers for a great year!
