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 Christianbook.com 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 Christianbook.com 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!
The American Patriot Series is the only truly comprehensive fictional series on the American Revolution. Painstakingly researched using a wide range of primary resources as well as the latest popular and scholarly histories of the American colonial and Revolutionary periods, it contains a highly engaging and accurate account of the founding of the United States.
While the series is written for adult readers, it is also appropriate for students from middle school through college age. The books of the American Patriot Series will engage students and bring history alive in a way that non-fiction texts cannot.
At the time of the Revolution the American colonies were already a melting pot of racial, ethnic, and religious groups. The American Patriot Series accurately depicts this diversity by portraying the involvement of women, African Americans, Native Americans, and other groups in the struggle for independence.
The American Revolution and the establishment of the United States are based solidly in the Christian faith of our founding generation, as innumerable primary resources document. It is therefore appropriate for the American Patriot Series to reflect those crucial aspects of our nation's founding by accurately depicting the beliefs and values of those who sacrificed their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to bring this nation to birth.
