Works in Progress




Freedom  •  Liberty's Battlegrounds: book #1 

Status: performing third edit.
Word Count: 70,000
Release Date: September 10th, 2019
Cover Reveal: June 1st, 2019

   Having just returned to American soil from the desert sands of the Middle East, James Greene is done with his life. 'Double amputee' doesn't seem like a strong enough phrase to label the physical and emotional pain he bears. Add the lack of love and communication with his family members, the demons that haunt him day and night, and he can find nothing worth living for. Ending it all is the only way out. 

   
Alexandria Lorance is a not-so-ordinary physical therapist, content with aiding in her patients' recoveries. Her work gives her fulfillment, but alone in the silence, she still endures the hidden scars of a past, unhealthy relationship. Reminding herself that true healing is found in Christ alone, she seeks to show kindness and love to everyone she meets.

   
When these two broken ones' paths intersect, the spark of friendship is ignited, bringing hope and joy to both. Can they step out of the darkness of suffering and into the freedom of grace? 

   
A Marine, broken by war. A therapist, scarred by words. A chance meeting in a parking lot bonded them together. But can love grow in these two hurting hearts? Or are they truly too broken to ever find lasting happiness? 





Chasing a Dream  •  connected to Dandelion Dust 

Status: writing first draft.
Word Count: 5,000 and counting
Release Date: tentatively, summer 2020

   All he had ever known faded into the rearview as Drew Traven drove away from the family ranch to chase his dream of being in the rodeo. He planned to ride bulls for a season, make some extra money, and go back home. 

   He didn’t plan to get chosen to travel with the gang. He didn’t plan to extend his contract. And he certainly didn’t plan to fall for the judge’s blue-eyed, barrel-racing daughter. 

  But how long can you ride a dream before you get bucked off?




One Summer  •  prequel to Dandelion Dust

Status: simmering, awaiting second edit.
Word Count: 16,000

   I thought love at first sight was just something people said. Until it happened to me. 

   When Charity arrived on the cattle-dotted plains of Oklahoma, she didn’t intend to fall for her best friend’s brother. But as the weekend speeds by in a blur of summertime, laughter, and memories, she finds herself clinging tightly to the time she’s been given—and dreading the coming goodbye. 

   As time passes and the unknowns begin to unfold, Charity learns that sometimes all it takes is one sunshine-drenched summer to show you how special you are.

  1. I love that first blurb ... B-)
    The others are awesome as well!! I'm so happy that you added this page! :D And .. you have 15K ad 20K written in David and Beth's books?!?!? That's so awesome!!! For some reason I thought you had between 10 and 15K for both. ;)
    Oh, and I really want to read more of "If there's no Second Chance". I think I started reading it last year. Before we met. No pressure, of course. ;)
    Okay, I'll be quiet now. ;P I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the stories you add to this page!!!

    1. Kind of figured you would... ;)
      Yes, yes, yes!! Isn't it fabulous?? :D I'm so pleased with how those books are coming. (And, ya know, if I would *only* write those I could probably finish them sooner...but instead I'm sidetracked on a little snippet with these same characters. B-))
      Ah, of course – no pressure. That's another story that's, uh, stuck? But it will be finished...eventually. ;)

      Thanks, Jesseca! I don't know *when* I'll be adding more (blurbs are sooo hard to write), but we'll see. :D

  2. 'War Tears' and 'War Tears' prequel... Sound very interesting, Faith! World War II really interests me, and I LOVE finding fiction books that are about WWII: it really puts thing in perspective and is intriguing!
    I look forward to being able to read these fantastic books! :D
    And YES, blurbs are hard to write! xD I mean, how to dense things and make sense of it all?! Lol! But I just put my pen to paper and see what happens, when it comes to blurbs, haha! ;D

    1. Aww, I'm glad you think so, Angela! :D I have a love for Christian historical fiction too, preferably WWII. :)
      Thank you!! That's so encouraging for me to hear. :)
      Borderline impossible!! Yes, yes, yes. My thoughts exactly. For me to write a blurb I have to be in the mood to write a blurb. Otherwise they turn out short and flat. :P ...And sometimes they do anyway. ;)

      Thanks for commenting and for visiting my blog! xD

  4. WOW...it sounds like you are quite a writer, Faith. I would love to read your works sometime, if that's okay. I would love to be an EARLY reader of your stories, and I'll give you a review also, when any are published or something.

      Yeah, that's absolutely okay. I would love to have you read my work. That would be awesome! Would you be interested in being a beta-reader for "War Tears" in a couple of months?

    1. *beams* *blushes* YOU ARE JUST TOO NICE GIRLIE. It's...its...not very professional. At all. Right now it's just a big mess while I focus on finishing War Tears. XD OF COURSE YOU MAY READ IT. *cough* Eventually. I meant to say eventually. XD Also... *whispers* I'll be sharing a Christmasy part of To Win Her Heart here soon, if I get it finished... *wink*

  7. Oh my gosh, Firefly, I LOVE WW2 history. I've always wanted to write in historical fiction, and I used to, but I wasn't much good at it. WW2 is sort of a hobby, if that makes sense. Love Band Of Brothers, and I love reading books on that kind of stuff. I'm reading The Diary of a Young girl, which is a good insight to the OTHER side of WW2, the jews. Anyway, thought I'd say that. ;)

    Also, can you stop by my blog and maybe follow? I'd appreciate it!

    1. *grins* WWII is the best!! Hehe, yep, that makes sense. I haven't read Diary of a Young Girl, but I have read other book on Anne Frank. :)

      I believe I already follow your blog... The Depth of my Faith? And you recently swapped from WordPress to Blogger? *nods* I'm already a follower. ;)

  8. I'm new to you blog, but it looks amazing. I love the header. I remember seeing the blog tour for your book on Faith's (Florid Sword's) blog.

    Your blurbs sound great. I especially love the last one. Really pulled me in. :)
