HAPPY 10TH ANNIVERSARY TO COLONIAL QUILLS!!!

Congratulations to our members with new releases!!!

~*~*~*~

DENISE WEIMER writes historical and contemporary romance and romantic suspense, mostly set in her home state of Georgia. She’s authored a dozen traditionally published novels and a number of novellas. As a managing editor for Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, she also helps others reach their publishing dreams. A wife and mother of two daughters, Denise always pauses for coffee, chocolate, and old houses.

Today, Denise will be giving away an e-book copy of her new release, Bent Tree Bride, set on the Alabama frontier in 1813, on both the blog and at the Facebook party.

Susanna Moore can’t get him out of her mind—the learned lieutenant who delivered the commission from Andrew Jackson making her father colonel of the Cherokee Regiment. But the next time she sees Lieutenant Sam Hicks, he’s leading a string of prisoners into a frontier fort, and he’s wearing the garb of a Cherokee scout rather than the suit of a white gentleman.

As both Susanna’s father and Sam’s commanding officer, Colonel Moore couldn’t have made his directive to stay away from his daughter clearer to Sam. He wants a better match for Susanna—like the stuffy doctor who escorted her to Creek Territory. Then a suspected spy forces Moore to rely on Sam for military intelligence and Susanna’s protection, making it impossible for either to guard their heart.

Interested in winning a copy? Leave a comment about the book below and be sure to come chat at the Facebook party.

PEGG THOMAS writes Colonial American Fiction and her first full-length novel is releasing on August 3rd. Sarah's Choice takes place at Fort Pitt, Pennsylvania, during the uprising known as Pontiac's Rebellion. Michelle Griep, Jocelyn Green, and Ann Gabhart have all endorsed this novel depicting one woman's struggle to survive in a time and place where the choices weren't easy and survival wasn't certain. 

To celebrate this CQ's anniversary, Pegg is giving away two ebook copies of her award-winning novella, In Sheep's Clothing. Mention SHEEP in your comments to be entered.

JANET GRUNST writes historical romances. She has a Revolutionary War series and a novella that takes place in 19th century Scotland and Ireland. Janet is a wife,

mother of two sons, and grandmother of eight. She lives in the historic triangle of Virginia (Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown) with her husband. A lifelong student of history, her love of writing fiction grew out of a desire to share stories that communicate the truths of the Christian faith, as well as entertain, inspire, and encourage readers. 

To celebrate our anniversary, Janet will be giving away to one commenter on the CQ blog an e-book copy of the third book in the series: Setting Two Hearts Free. 


Would their love survive the invisible wounds of war?

Donald Duncan joined the Patriot cause for noble reasons, battling the British while enduring deprivation and hardship on every side. The war has changed him, and now the battle is internal. Returning home to Virginia is in sight where a new life and his Mary wait for him.

Mary Stewart spends the war years with her family at Stewarts’ Green, helping them operate their ordinary. Daily, she prays for Donald’s safe return, eagerly waiting for him … until that day the evil side of war touches her.

Two hearts changed by a war that dragged on for six years. Two hearts left hurting and struggling to find the love and trust they once knew. Is there a path for them to rekindle what was lost, Setting Two Hearts Free?

Don't forget to also come by the Facebook party.

For as long as she can remember, Christy Distler has dreamed her most vivid dreams with her eyes wide open. Names became people—people who didn’t exist in this time and place but couldn’t have been more real in her heart and mind. So she did the only rational thing: gave them a voice by writing fiction.

Christy’s novels, whether historical or contemporary, delve into betrayal and reconciliation, faith and grace, and always involve the intertwining of cultures. When not writing, she works as an editor for publishing houses and independent authors.

Obsession with words aside, she’s also a wife and the mom of kids and dogs. She lives in the same Pennsylvania town where she grew up, less than two miles from where A Cord of Three Strands takes place.



As 1756 dawns, Isaac Lukens leaves the Pennsylvania wilderness after two years with the Lenape people. He's failed to find the families of his birth parents, a French trader and a Lenape woman. Worse, the tribe he's lived with, having rejected his peacemaking efforts, now ravages frontier settlements in retaliation. When he arrives in the Quaker community where he was reared, questions taunt him: Who is he--white man or Lenape? And where does he belong?

Elisabeth Alden, Isaac's dearest childhood friend, is left to tend her young siblings alone upon her father's death. Despite Isaac's promise to care for her and the children, she battles resentment toward him for having left, while an unspeakable tragedy and her discordant courtship with a prominent Philadelphian weigh on her as well.
 
Elisabeth must marry or lose guardianship of her siblings, and her options threaten the life with her and the children that Isaac has come to love. Faced with Elisabeth's hesitancy to marry, the prospect of finding his family at last, and the opportunity to assist in the peace process between Pennsylvania and its Indian tribes, Isaac must determine where—and with whom—he belongs.

A Cord of Three Strands weaves fact and fiction into a captivating portrayal of Colonial-era Quaker life, including Friends' roles in Pennsylvania Indian relations and in refuting slavery.

To celebrate Colonial Quills' tenth anniversary, Christy is giving away a copy of A Cord of Three Strands and a braided page marker like the one the characters make in the book. Enter by leaving a comment below. And for those who don't win but would like to read it, the ebook just happens to be on sale for $0.99 from 5/31/2021 through 6/5/2021.

Shannon McNear joined Colonial Quills in 2013, the same year as her debut novella Defending Truth in A Pioneer Christmas Collection. Since then she has been blessed to mark the release of three more novellas (all historical romance), three full-length historical titles, and the completion of "long" full length historical releasing this coming December. After more than two decades in the Charleston, South Carolina, area, she makes her home on the northern prairies, but finds herself easily lost in history no matter where she is. You can connect with her at her website, shannonmcnear.com, or on social media:
Giveaway: one copy of my most recent release, Love's Pure Light, containing my WWI story, The Wise Guy and the Star. This 4-novella collection, with co-authors Susanne Dietze, Janine Roche, and Deborah Raney, features an heirloom nativity handed down through several generations, spanning the turn of the 20th century to the present day. Please leave a comment about the book (or if you prefer one of my other titles, mention that as well), or come chat with me at 1:45 EDT at the Facebook party!


To keep from freezing in the Great White North, Angela K Couch cuddles under quilts with her laptop. As a passionate believer in Christ, her faith permeates the stories she tells. Her martial arts training, experience with horses, and appreciation for good romance sneak in there, as well. When not writing, she stays fit (and warm) by chasing after five munchkins. She is very excited for this coming year and the release of two new novels: A Rose for the Resistance set during WWII and a part of Barbour house's WWII Heroine series, and Where Wild Roses Bloom a sweeping adventure featuring our favorite lawmen in red, Mounties. To be kept in the loop on all the exciting books coming, sign up for Angela's newsletter here:

Angela will be giving away to one of today's guests their choice of her colonial e-books from her Hearts at War series:

What a thrill to be celebrating 10 years of Colonial Quills blogging!!! When we got started back then, I'd been advised that most blogs only lasted maybe five years. So we've definitely beaten the odds! Altbough I am the Founder and Admin of the blog, it is the contributors who keep the blog going. Thank you to all of them for their wonderful posts!


During the past decade since we began the blog, I've had over twenty publications. My latest release, Butterfly Cottage is a Women's Fiction, Contemporary Christian Fiction. How FUN that the three heroines in the story are all descendants of one of the first colonial characters I ever researched -- William Christy!!! Inspired by real-life William Christy, a scout, I've written a number of stories with William in them and also his descendants! So this is really fun to have come full-circle from Colonial times to the present over the course of this past ten years! I'm giving away an autographed paperback or a kindle copy to a blog commenter!


I have a new release audiobook Dogwood Plantation set in the Early American Period.  I've got audiobook codes to give away here on the blog and at the online Facebook Party!

Link to our party on Facebook: From 1-3 pm on Wednesday May 26th

    Hi Denise, I've already read Bent Tree Bride and featured it on my blog. It was a great read!

    Pegg Thomas, my husband and I farmed for many years. We milked cows and raised beef cattle. We also had chickens and hogs to supply us with eggs and meat, and our daughter enjoyed dogs, cats, and her own horse, but we never had SHEEP on our farm! Thanks for your giveaway.

    Setting Two Hearts Free sounds like a wonderful story. Thanks for sharing Janet Grunst.

    Naomi Musch, I haven't read Mist O’er the Voyageur.

    A Cord of Three Strands sounds fascinating and I would love to read it. Thanks for the chance Christy Distler!

    Shannon McNear, I've read several of your books and I'm a big fan of your historical fiction. I've also often admired the cover of Love's Pure Light!

    Hi Angela, I haven't had the pleasure of reading any books in the Hearts at War series.

    Carrie, I've been excited about your new book Butterfly Cottage, but I somehow missed that William Christy has a bearing on the story. How fun! Congratulations and thanks for all of your work in keeping this blog alive and well!

  28. The books that everyone on Colonial Quills has written have seen me through some tough times in my life. The suicide of my brother Mark who always described me and him as being the black sheep's of the family. He was saved earlier in his life and that is a comfort to me as the books that you all have written. Seriously, when I felt/feel sad, or down or lost I pick up a book. THe last one I read happened to be Carries new release and I wont post any spoilers!
