My author copies arrived!

I was thrilled to find my author copies on my porch Monday. I ripped open the box and held my fourth book in my hands for the first time. And that means I’m able to mail out autographed copies to winners of the book.
Love Inspired Historicals have gone to a matte finish cover and a narrower stripe across the top. Let me know how you like the new look.
Wanted: A Family releases March 8 so be on the lookout for it in the Walmart, K-Mart or bookstore near you! It’s also available online at and on March 8.

Shelter of Hope

The ramshackle Victorian house is all that widowed mother-to-be Callie Mitchell has left. But she’s going to make that house into a true home—a home where she and her baby will be safe and happy…and where women in need can find refuge. And if that means trusting stranger Jacob Smith to help with the repairs, then so be it.

Jacob came to town with a handful of old postcards and one goal in mind—to find the mother who’d abandoned him years before. He never planned to stay…and he certainly never planned to care for Callie. Yet as they rebuild the house together, Jacob and Callie also build the family they’ve always wanted.

Blessings, Janet

    Janet, the cover is beautiful. I look forward to getting my copy of the book once it arrives in my local Walmart and to seeing the new matte finish on the LIHs.

    Receiving each of your books must be a delight, much like beholding each child for the first time.

    Congratulations on your newest book, Janet! How exciting that must be! ~ And I LOVE the cover and the "new look"–very nice. I will eagerly look in my nearby Walmart once the book arrives–cannot wait! Blessings from rainy Georgia, Patti Jo 🙂

    Janet, as usual your book cover is very tasteful and serene. The new change is subtle but I'm having a hard time picturing the matte cover. I'll let you know after I've actually held one, too.

    Congrats of your continued success. Love your books. 😀

    Sounds great, Janet, and I love the cover. That's something I miss with my Kindle, is the look of covers and the feel of pages.
