Blurb:

Five years ago, Ginger Carlyle turned down a marriage proposal that everyone, including Jacob Noble, thought she would agree to.

 

Five years ago, Jacob Noble took a job in a northern California mining town that he hoped would help him to forget the love he’d left behind in Ashton. But there was no way he could forget Ginger, or his own broken heart.

 

Back in Ashton, Ginger has been beset by tragedy after tragedy. After her father’s death, she is the only one who can care for her ailing mother and manage the family house and land. But hard work isn’t enough when the bank comes looking for the mortgage payments. Unable to tell her mother the truth about their dire financial circumstances, Ginger will have to work even harder to make sure that their Thanksgiving holiday is as joyful as it always was when her father was alive.

 

However, after Ginger is accused of stealing from her new employer, her whole world is turned upside down. She’s dragged to the sheriff’s office where she’s shocked to discover the new deputy is none other than the very man whose proposal, she turned down all those years ago.

 

As the past is re-visited and secrets come to light, is there hope that justice will be Ginger’s in time for Thanksgiving?

Title: THE CASCADES: A Female Factory Convict Love Story

Author: Annabel Vaughan

The Cascades

Blurb

Millicent ‘Millie’ Staples had been transported to Hobart Town, in the new colony of Van Diemen’s Land, guilty of the most minor of offences.

When The Cascades Female Factory at the base of Mount Wellington opened, Millie found herself unceremoniously dumped there and a life of deprivation and cruelty became part of her everyday existence.

Then fate intervened…

Millie attracted the attention of a young, kindly, and wealthy, merchant—Arthur Symonds, who fell in love with the beautiful young girl and eventually secured her Ticket of Leave.

Millie’s past, her courageous struggles, were to be denied, kept hidden for the next six generations—185 years, in fear of the shame it would bring to the family.

***

Julianne Marshall had never expected to find the small journal, along with other unusual items from the past, when she’d offered to clean out her deceased grandmother’s belongings that were stored in the roof space of her parent’s home in the affluent suburb of Battery Point, Hobart.

When she learned the age of the journal, she was stunned that the small leather-bound book was still in one piece after so many years, although tattered and somewhat the worse for wear.

As Julianne read and the family listened to secrets that had been kept locked away for generations, a passionate love story was finally revealed…

The Van Diemen Land ‘roots’ of the well-known Marshall family were not what they’d assumed.

Title: She Wore a Hat in Prison
Author: Marion L. Cornett
Genre: Historical Fiction
Release Date: September 7, 2022
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
The charge is Mayhem. Locals in the small village of Cedartown cry out for harsh judgment by finding her guilty of the horrific act and making her pay for her sins. How could a woman so egregiously harm her husband, especially one so admired as Narcisco Boronza?

Zerelda Boronza is caught in the middle, between defending and saving herself.

When she awoke one humid morning in the fall of 1907, splayed on the hardwood floor, she was covered in blood not knowing if it was someone else’s or her own. Eyes gritty and hard-to-focus, palms sticky on the floor, and a blood-soaked spread covering an empty bed—her memory offered no clue of how this all came about.

And now, as she sits next to her attorney, the judge pounding his gavel for silence, her mind swirls with confusion. What happens during the week-long trial and after is unthinkable.

 

The charge of Mayhem is defined by causing injurious and irreparable harm to another human being. In 1907, when my character took drastic measures to prevent her husband from ever being with another woman, the following paragraph at the beginning of her trial shows when it starts to become apparent what she did.

“You are charged, by the great state of Michigan, in the county of Livingston, village of Cedartown, with the crime of…” The officer’s voice trailed off as he gawked at the remaining words on the page. The single piece of paper he’d been holding escaped from his fingers as if on fire, and the yellowish sheaf fluttered to the wooden floor. “…Mayhem,” he said after a long pause. His voice hissed out no louder than a mouse’s squeak.”

 
Marion Cornett, like many novelists, began her career in a steep learning curve that ultimately lasted over some forty years before having her first story published. That meant having national magazines publish original patterns for knitting, crocheting, and needlework, while perfecting her journalistic abilities through motorcycle road racing reporting.

Her claim to fame, at this point, is all about Michigan’s past. Two volumes of local history about her adopted town, Fowlerville, proved to be a great research tool to then write two historical novels set in a small town that looks a lot like their village in the early 1900s. “Juniper and Anise,” a story of a woman bootlegger selling bathtub gin during the Prohibition Era, was published by Whiskey Creek Press in 2014 and “Tilly Loves Johnny,” a murder/mystery tale centered around the illicit activities of a blind pig, was published by the Wild Rose Press in 2016.

“The Fowlerville Chronicles” (2010), a compilation of the village’s history from 1836 to 2010, and “Through the Eyes of a Country Editor” (2012), the writings and life of G.L. Adams, publisher and editor of the newspaper, “The Fowlerville Review,” are available in used and new prints. “A Soldier, a Brother, and a House” is also available on Amazon–original Civil War letters have been transcribed and preserved for all to read in this compilation of notes between two brothers and of the house in Fowlerville where the letters were discovered a hundred years after the war ended.

As research continues, more stories are in the works. All happening while continuing to travel around the country on named “awesome road trips,” hiking portions of the Appalachian and Arizona trails, and thoroughly enjoying time with her husband, Doug, since falling deep into retirement.

Love to read, write, exercise, socialize, and be a part of the internet social media. Born to be creative, loves to write–that’s my motto and I’m sticking to it.

Author Bio:

Author Bio Jay Raven is the author of Gothic chillers and historical horror reminding readers that the past is a dangerous place to venture, full of monsters and murderous men. 

He blames his fascination with vampires, witches and werewolves on the old TV reruns of horror classics he watched as a teenager but living in a creepy old house on the edge of a 500-acre wood may have something to do with it.

Blurb:

“At twelve o’clock on Monday, April 22d, the resident population of Guthrie was nothing; before sundown it was at least ten thousand. In that time streets had been laid out, town lots staked off, and steps taken toward the formation of a municipal government.”

March 1889

Franklin Sinclair, wealthy Chicago mine investor, has had enough. It’s time for his vain and spoiled daughter, Priscilla, to grow up. After refusing every suitable man who might have her as a bride, he declares that if she wants to see a penny of her inheritance, she must go to Oklahoma to stake a claim on his behalf in the upcoming land run. Otherwise, he’ll marry her off to the first old man who expresses an interest in her before he retires to San Francisco. Priscilla, horrified but determined to get what she wants, agrees to the deal. However, what happens when she discovers that poor and pesky – yet annoyingly handsome – Ladd Mabry, also plans to head out west to participate in the land run?

 

Ladd Mabry works in a dirty Chicago factory after his father was killed in an explosion while mining for silver in California. He blames the mine’s owner, Franklin Sinclair, for not ensuring safe working conditions at the mine. Since he can’t get close enough to the man to demand restitution – or at least an apology – he’ll settle for his pampered (albeit gorgeous) daughter, Priscilla. Irritated after she blows him off, Ladd decides to leave Chicago altogether and start over out west. But who should he then discover on the very same train bound for Oklahoma?
