|A picture of a man in New York.|
(I copied it from the internet for this post because it seemed appropriate.)
Not so very long ago, two girls wowed the blogging world with their joint presentation of a story set in the Great Depression. One of the fascinating things about this story (in addition to the story's own wonderfulness) was the way the two girls did it together -- I loved the letters. And now, I am very pleased to announce, their story is to be published. Hurrah!!!
Furthermore, I am very pleased to announce that the cover reveal is today and that I have the privilege of sharing it with you.
Ladies and gentlemen, the cover of Ain't We Got Fun!
1935: It was never much of an issue for Bess: living contentedly on her family's farm, despite the Depression which loomed around them. But when her older sister Georgiana takes off to New York City to make a fortune and help Papa out, feelings of adventure and wanderlust strike Bess at home. Through their lively letter correspondence, the sisters recount to one another their adventures, surprises, and heartaches, leaving little room for depression. For in a world of such wonder, ain't we got fun?
And now to meet the authors:
EMILY CHAPMAN, also known as Bess Rowland, is a young hobbit living in the dear old South, and she is entirely bonkers. She's a dreamer, an optimistic pessimist, and an introverted people person. Blue skies, dancing, Disney, and whipped cream make her happy, and she swears she's been to Narnia. She's been a reader all her life, became a writer because of that, and published her first novel, Cry of Hope, in March of 2014. But without her Savior, all of this would mean nothing. It is in Him that she puts her hope. “And hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out His love into hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us.” – Romans 5: 5
EMILY ANN PUTZKE and Gi Rowland have two big things in common – their love for God and coffee. Besides writing historical fiction, Emily enjoys being an aunty, photography, Irish dancing, spending time with family, attempting to play the guitar, reenacting, and reading. She loves polka dots, war movies, and all things vintage. Her first novella, It Took a War, was published in December of 2014.
This delightful story is scheduled to be released to the public in paperback and ebook formats on May 25, 2015! Feel free to check back on this blog for more information. Or you can go to the author's blogs:
