It’s Wednesday! Half of the week is gone, and we still have half to look forward to. We have a full rest of the week. We’ll be going to a book signing on Saturday. We like to encourage our authors as much as we can when they launch a book. This one is not too far away, and we’re anxious to show Cynthia Roemer how proud we are of her and her second book.
Marketing is so hard for most authors. It’s hard to realize how much we need to tell people about their books. Owning a publishing company is no different. We try to market all of our books. I’d love to give away some books this week. I’d like to draw your name and give you your favorite book published by Mantle Rock Publishing LLC. Make a comment with your favorite, or one you’d like to read.
Yesterday we talked about our first book. Today let’s look at one that we published early in 2014. A Most Precious Gift was our first Amazon Best Seller. We published this book in August 2014. The author, Jacqueline Wheelock, called me as we were traveling in North Carolina to tell me it was in the Top 100 on Amazon. When we stopped, I saw it was climbing up the ranks on the Top 100. This book has remained almost constantly on the Top 100 Best Selling Books on Amazon.
Dinah Devereaux, New Orleans-born slave and seamstress, suddenly finds herself relegated to a sweltering kitchen on the Natchez town estate of Riverwood. Having never cooked a day in her life, she is terrified of being found out and banished to the cotton fields as was her mother before her. But when she accidentally burns the freedom papers of Jonathan Mayfield, a handsome free man of color to whom she’s attracted, her fear of the fields becomes secondary.
A gifted cabinetmaker, Jonathan Mayfield’s heart is set on finally becoming a respected businessman by outfitting a bedroom at the palatial Riverwood—until a beautiful new slave destroys his proof of freedom and his fragile confidence along with it.
When the mistress of Riverwood orders Dinah to work alongside the sullen Mr. Mayfield, sparks fly setting the two on a collision course. Is their mutual love for God strong enough to overcome deep-seated insecurities and set the couple on a path toward self-acceptance and love for each other?
Be sure to leave a comment and tell me what your favorite book is that has been published with Mantle Rock Publishing LLC. I want to give away some ebooks. In fact, I want to give away a lot of books.
