A journey that began almost seven years comes to an end this Friday with the publication of the third Emma Parks book. I have a lot of bittersweet thoughts and memories about this end, though it comes with a caveat, which I explain below.
I did not intend to write a series, much less a series about Child Protective Services, yet here we are. Emma, her story, and her family lived in my brain as a bright light because I believe they are what our country can become when the chips are down: family and front-line workers who stick together and find the best solution. When those tough times involve kids, that’s when we need people like Emma and her colleagues the most. America at its best.
If you’d like to see for yourself, the first two books are free on Wednesday, April 29, and Thursday, April 30. Emma Forgiven will be available for download on Friday, May 1, for a mere 99¢ or free on Kindle Unlimited. Here’s the link.
For those who want a compilation, I’m editing the first two books to correct typos and minor timeline issues, and I will upload those to the existing books soon. The compilation will also be offered as a Kindle download and as a hardcopy book, my first.
If you’ve been along for the ride, thank you. I hope the new book doesn’t disappoint. If it does, let me know. Reviews made us all better writers. Take care.
