Sneak Peek

At last, my debut novel has gone to print! It will release through the Heartsong Presents book club in January 2012 and be available through trade markets (Amazon, CBD, etc.) in June.  I'm excited to give you a sneak peek at the beautiful cover that Barbour created. I cannot tell you how pleased I am as they took into consideration my suggestions and really captured the protagonist's essence.



 The Shadow Catcher’s Daughter
Colorado/New Mexico, 1875

  Eliana Van Horn aims to make her mark by joining her father as his photography assistant on an expedition to survey and document the placement of a marker at the intersection of four southwest boundaries. Living in the shadows of his native heritage, a half-Navajo guide, Yiska Wilcox, is thrown off course when The Shadow Catcher’s Daughter opens up the uncharted territory of his heart. As they travel through dangerous terrain in New Mexico and overcome barriers of culture, faith, ideals, and secrets that they both keep, they at last discover common ground and stake a chance on love.
 
The Shadow Catcher’s Daughter is book 1 in the Love in Four Corners series. Book 2, Pride's Fall by Darlene Franklin and Book 3, Almost Arizona by Susan Page Davis

  11. So exciting, Carla! A fair reward for much prayer and hard work - and dreams fulfilled - too sweet! I'm sharing your joy and triumph vicariously - my writing path has taken me down other roads - but I still nestle my novel dreams with occasional thoughts of my unfinished manuscripts . . . Joy to you!!

  14. Thank you everyone for your kind and generous comments! Now we still have a long wait until I can get it into reader's hands (June) unless you belong to the Heartsong Presents book club, which will release it in Jan.

    I hope they send me a flat, Kaye, but if they don't I'll be sure to hang something on my wall. A poster maybe?!!

    Blessings to you all and again, many thanks!
