In Which I Decide To Update My Blog

Good Saturday Morning!  Seeing that I last posted in April, I shall proceed to offer a brief update.

I've been writing a book. Rewriting, actually. DRIVE which is to be released in the fall of 2018 is a continuation of Bakers Mountain Stories and this one features twins, Ida and Ellie Honeycutt.  The year is 1952 and the historical backdrop is the Korean War, the arms race with Russia, the election of Dwight D. Eisenhower and the opening of Hickory Motor Speedway. The story is essentially about competition which seems to be a major issue with twins!  But it's also about the deep connection that twins share.

I'd love to reveal the cover here but I believe it's a wee bit early for that. So instead I will post an image of my bookmarks - one of the other things I've worked on.

Back - oops!
I ordered a thousand of these babies with my website address missing. So grateful I elected not to go for 2000 or even 5000 which I have done in the past.

I order my bookmarks from Overnight Prints and have always been delighted with the results. They are super fast and easy to use. And larger orders are not much more expensive than smaller ones.  Just be sure you get your design right when clicking on the quantity!

So there's my update for now.  Truth be told, I've done much more than revise a book and design bookmarks but enough is enough for one day.  I shall return.  I have to, because people who get their hands on my new bookmark won't find a website address.  Hopefully they will drop in here.

  3. I'd like to do a book review of Blue on ChristianChildren'sAuthors.com I'd like to have a picture of the cover for the blog. Is there a picture I can copy and paste or upload. I don't seem to be having much success. Thanks. PS LOVE your books. I read Aim, Blue and am reading Comfort now.

  4. Wow! Gail thanks so much. I'm really glad you love the books. Feel free to copy and paste from my website www.joycemoyerhostetter.com Just right click and then click on SAVE IMAGE AS. That should bring up a menu for where to save it on your computer. Then you can upload it to the blog you are writing. But if that is problematic you can also email me at address on bottom of my website or at moyergirl at charter dot net and I will send and image to you.
