This month we have three books releasing, yes three! I don’t think we have ever had three in one month before. We usually schedule two a month, but the way April starts out we have three. Plus my daughter, Diane Turpin, and her daughter, Savannah, and myself are leaving for Scotland in three and a half weeks. We’re working hard to get everything out before we leave. It has been hard and tedious to get it done, but we’re almost there.
Let’s talk about these three books. We have a set of five novellas, a romance, and an epic fantasy to release this month. I have enjoyed all three of them. All of the authors are new to Mantle Rock Publishing.
April 2 releases All My Tears by Kathy McKinsey. I’ve know Kathy for a couple of years. She edits some for us. Due to an accident early in Kathy’s childhood, she is blind, but she is the most positive person I know. She does not let blindness get her down. I love positive people. Kathy is a good friend and a good editor. This is her first book to publish, and she is very excited.
Five women search for God’s hope through sorrow and deep troubles.
Meet five women who struggle with life’s deep sorrows. Beth fights to recover from alcoholism and to mend her relationships with her family. Ann doesn’t believe God will forgive her. Kathleen wrestles with a years-old fear and with saving her marriage. Cassie needs to learn to deal with chronic depression. Martie finds herself the single parent of the eight-year-old niece she barely knows when the child’s parents die in a car wreck.
See how god gives them the gifts of hope, healing, and love.

The next book releases on April 16, 2019. The author is Amy Anguish. Amy and I have been internet friends for about ten years. We started critiquing together way back when. She moved to Tennessee, and we became better friends. It’s good to have Amy in our Mantle Rock Publishing family. Her book is a romance, and I enjoyed it very much.
Two sisters. One summer. Multiple problems.
Younger sister Hope has lost her job, her car, and her boyfriend all in one day. Her well-laid plans for life have gone sideways, as has her hope in God.
Older sister Faith is finally getting her dream-come-true after years of struggles and prayers. But when her mom talks her into letting Hope move in for the summer, will the stress turn her dream into a nightmare? Is her faith in God strong enough to handle everything?
For two sisters who haven’t gotten along in years, this summer together could be a disaster, or it could lead them to a closer relationship with each other and God. Can they overcome all life is throwing at them? Or is this going to destroy their relationship for good?

Our third book to release is an epic medieval fantasy by Brett Armstrong. It is to release April 23, 2019. We are working hard to get it up. Here is the blurb and the cover. Since we’ve been working with Brett, we’ve found him to be one of the nicest men we’ve met in a long time. He is always eager to do whatever we ask him to do. I’ve enjoyed getting to know him and working with him. I enjoyed this book very much.
Coming from a speck of a town, the harshest reality Anargen ever faced is one day having to work in the regional mines. The calm is shattered when Anargen pledges his loyalty to the ancient High King. Strange things begin happening and Anargen find himself torn from his home and loved ones on a journey north with three other young knights chosen for a special quest. Their mentor, Sir Cinaed, has been asked to arbitrate a centuries old dispute between the men of Ecthelowall and the dwarves of Ordumair. Cinaed neglects to mention that the dwarves of Ordumair loath the knight order to which Anargen and his friends belong. Worse still, an arcane evil known as the Grey Scourge begins stalking them and it becomes obvious there is more at stake than a petty rivalry. The Grey Scourge is determined to ruin the peace talks and ensure a lost treasure held by the dwarves is never found by the four youths for whom it was meant. As the negotiations degenerate into open conflict and the Ordumair’s fortress is besieged, Anargen and his friends fight not just for the survival of the dwarves, but the fate of their world.
I hope you will enjoy these books. When I write again I’ll be in Scotland. I’m excited to see my family that lives there, and I hear there is a wee one on the way.
