Crucible of War Releases Today!

Today is the official release date for Crucible of War. New authors tend to have the feeling that something spectacular is going to happen on the day their book finally releases, so it can feel like an anticlimax when nothing much really does. Those of us who are in the industry or have had previous books published know it’s simply the date that the book is supposed to be available for purchase in the stores and online. It’s sort of a birth date, and it’s something for the author to celebrate!

In this case, of course, the ebook edition of Crucible has been available from Kindle, Nook, and for several weeks. And now the print version should already be in stock and ship right away when ordered, though the major retailers’ websites are often slow to change over from preorder to regular order.

If you’re enjoying the American Patriot Series, I very much appreciate positive reviews on retailer sites such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and as well as on the social media such as Facebook. And if you’re not familiar with the series yet, I hope you’ll get a copy of Daughter of Liberty and see if you like it! If you do, then please tell others about it.

Sales are what keep any series going, and word of mouth is the most effective recommendation for any book. Please help me through these stories to continue to entertain, inspire, inform, and educate readers about the heroic generation that courageously opposed the most powerful nation in the world in their day . . . and won liberty for us and for those who follow us!


  1. Any idea when Valley of the Shadow will be out?? I just read all 4 books in the last 2 weeks and am dying for more!

  2. Erica,

    Wow--that's amazing! You made my day! :-) I'm so glad you're enjoying the series,and I'm hoping to have Valley of the Shadow out in fall 2014. The ebook version may come out a couple of months earlier. I'm writing busily....
