Hurrah for The Soldier!

About a week and a half from now, this little gem is going LIVE! Releasing on the 156th anniversary of the Battle at Antietam in Sharpsburg, Maryland! I’ll be ON THE BATTLEFIELD on the day of the release!!!! I’m so stoked! That’s how much I LOVE this book, this series, and these characters.

I’m am a southern girl at heart. I like my sweet tea and I say “y’all” probably more than I should in professional conversation. But nothing could have prepared me for writing this story. I delved so deep into the history of the Civil War that it’s in my blood now. I loved every minute of it, but my research also taught me some hard truths regarding what the war was and wasn’t about. I learned about the opinions of both sides, Yankee and Confederate. I learned what it was like for the civilians, the soldiers, and the generals. So many movies and novels try to breathe life into this era and they do a fair job, but I think unless we have personally lived it there’s no way to grasp its full meaning and reality.

I endeavored to do this, but there was so much I couldn’t include while still sticking to the main plotline. This is the beginning of Ben’s long and heartwrenching story within the Legacy Series and it’s my fond hope that you will read and enjoy this tale of a true revel soldier.

Preorder Now! 

Releasing September 17th, 2018!

The-Soldier-fullAmerica – 1862
The nation has been torn apart by a war of secession, but not all southerners are alike and fight for their own causes. That’s what Dustin Keith, a werewolf recently liberated from his mentor’s guardianship, saw in Ben Myers, a Georgia farm boy serving in the Confederate Army. Only in the army so he could escape north and then find a way abroad, Dustin never expected to take part in the single bloodiest day in American history. At Antietam, Ben is fatally wounded and Dustin sees that the only way to save this good soul is to turn him into what he is – a werewolf.
With a wife and infant son at home, Ben wants nothing more than to see the end of this terrible war and go home to his own state. But now, freshly turned into a supernatural creature with unbelievable abilities, the long journey home from Virginia has become that much more difficult. If the enemy army, a strict mentor, and sheer distance wasn’t enough, there’s something off about Ben’s condition that will make it nearly impossible for him to enter society ever again.
