Sunday Showcase - Author Sara Barnard

Please welcome my friend and fellow author at 5 Prince Publishing, Sara Barnard. Sara is the author of the historical fiction series, An Everlasting Heart. She has been reading children’s books her whole life. First, she read then as a child, then she read them to her four beautiful children! She has her Bachelor’s degree in history, has had her work included in numerous anthologies, and has written several other books to date. Sara and her family make their home in the historic hills of Oklahoma along with their three dogs, three cats, and eight chickens.


           Catch up on Sanderson and Charlotte's adventures through An Everlasting Heart series, starting with book 1, A Heart on Hold. After receiving word that Sanderson was killed during a botched escape from a Confederate prison in Illinois, Charlotte wastes no time in heading north through a war-ravaged country with only her faith in God and her beloved horse to bring her Sanderson home -- one way or another.







The war is over, Sanderson is home, and life is good ... until the Army comes knocking. They've charged Sanderson with murder and sentenced him to track down the notorious outlaw William Quantrill -- or face the hangman's noose. Meanwhile, Charlotte is left alone to endure a complicated pregnancy and battle a rash of hydrophobia that threatens Cotton, Achilles, and the entire countryside -- her Sanderson included.








Gold. Massacres. Soldiers. Indians. Can Charlotte survive life on the trail or will the wildness of the west tear her family apart?
With Sanderson's job as an Indian Agent beckoning from California, Charlotte must leave behind her life in Arkansas to follow the man she loves, and whose child she is carrying, in search of a place they can call home.








 From Quanah Parker to Wyatt Earp, Charlotte and Sanderson rub shoulders with some of the American West’s most notable characters as they stumble into Government conspiracies, endure a hard pregnancy, and survive nature’s fury -- all while struggling to remember what truly makes a home is love.

Sunday Showcase - All For Love by author Ann Swann

In today's Sunday Showcase I am featuring All For Love by author Ann Swann.


Ann is a fellow author at 5 Prince Publishing. She lives in West Texas with her handsome hubby and three rescue pets.  All For Love is Ann’s first adult contemporary novel.  She is the author of the Young Adult books: The Phantom Series.  Book One is The Phantom Pilot, Book Two is The Phantom Student, and she is hard at work on Book Three, The Phantom of Crybaby Bridge.  Ann has also published short fiction in the anthology Timeless (paranormal love stories).  The Phantom series is currently available only through the author. 

Oooh, I love that title, The Phantom of Crybaby Bridge.




Liz falls in love with Quinn the moment they meet in college.  He professes to love her, too.  She begins to think about the future, but his past rips them apart.  What Liz does next impacts the rest of their lives, but she feels it is the only way… she does it all for love.

All For Love is available from 5 Prince Publishing, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smash Words.

Here's an excerpt from All For Love...

            We were on our last game when Carol came up to serve.  She hit a nice one but José got to it and gulped a mouthful of sand to set it up for Boyd who spotted it for Greg to come in and spike.  Everyone could see it was going to crash right at my feet, but there was no way I could get to it; I was half a step away when a lean figure in cutoffs dashed through the middle of the game and dove directly in front of me.
            Wild brown hair all tangled up in the setting sun, he flipped the ball onto my waiting hands as if by magic.  His grin was electric.  It lit up the gloaming as if he’d swallowed the sun.  Without a sound, he twisted like a fish escaping the hook and raced around the corner just as some chick with a water balloon appeared on the horizon between the dorms.
            “No fair!” Greg cried as I set the ball for Ronnie.
            She got it in their weak spot near the back corner—she was good at that—the back left corner was Boyd’s territory.  He came charging under the net on the pretense of anger, and tackled her in the bed-soft sand thus effectively ending the game.
            At that, we all flopped down, exhausted.  I looked around for the smiling boy who’d saved my game, but he was nowhere to be seen. 
            “Who was that?” I asked the group at large.
            Boyd cocked an eyebrow at me.  “Quinn Rose,” he said.  “Math major, I think.”  Our school was small, a branch of The University of Texas.  Everyone knew someone who knew everyone else.  It was like six-degrees of separation on steroids.
            Carol grunted affirmation.  “Chick chasing him was Delilah, his girlfriend.”
            I nodded as if it were really no big deal, but Ronnie’s radar had been alerted by something in the tone of my voice.
            “Want me to pass him a note at recess?” Her voice was so coy I wanted to throttle her.  Instead, I hopped up, brushed the sand from my shorts, and started toward the dorm.  Carol jumped up to accompany me. 
            “Pizza?” Greg called.
            Carol and I turned at the same time.  She looked at me and I looked at her.  “Sure,” we said in unison.
            That night, after pizza and beer with Greg and José, Carol and I went for a stroll on the quad.  I loved the splashing refrains of the fountains in the brick courtyard.  It was the best place for smoking—back then, you could smoke damn near anywhere.
            “He likes you,” Carol said quietly.
            “Greg?” My voice was deep because I’d just inhaled.
            “José.”  She didn’t look at me so I couldn’t judge whether she was serious or facetious.   “Greg too, I think.”
            I stopped walking.  I thought we were all just friends.  Romantic entanglements were not something I wanted with either of these guys.
            “Nah,” I tried to keep it light.  “We’re all just buds.  Ronnie’s the one every guy fantasizes about.”  After I’d said it, I felt kind of small.  Maybe I was a tiny bit jealous of our roommate; after all, she was tall and slim with long smooth red hair.  Compared to my average, stocky body, and wavy brown locks, she was a supermodel.  I didn’t really care that all the guys zeroed in on Ronnie, though.  I was so timid I much preferred the background.  I was really surprised Carol thought the two guys had even noticed me.
            I mulled it over later that night while I lay in my narrow, dorm-sized bed, but when I finally dozed off, it was with another name in my head: Quinn Rose.  His face was in shadow, twisted away from me toward the lights that limned the sand-court, but his crazy hair was lit from underneath, and his smile was everywhere.

 I am definitely added this to my TBR list!
