    A Christmas Gift Special

    The Gifting trilogy Christmas giftI’ve had some readers asking about a box set to give as Christmas gifts this year! While these won’t come in a box, they WILL come autographed and tied with a pretty bow.

    A $40 value for only $25 – the perfect gift for the avid readers in your life! Teens are loving the series, and so are the adults. Ladies, and the dudes. It’s all inclusive over here.

    I’ll take orders until Monday, November 15th. I want to give myself enough cushion to get the books ordered, signed, and off in the mail during the busy holiday season. If you’re interested, please send an email to katie@katieganshert.com. Let me know how many full sets you want to purchase, who you want me to sign each set to, and your mailing address. Once I have, I’ll send you an invoice, which will allow you to pay via paypal or check.

    Happy reading!

    Release Day Giveaway

    You guys. Two firsts happened for me today!

    One. I have an Amish novella out in the world. An Amish novella, y’all.

    I’ve written all my life. Actually, not really. It feels like I’ve written all my life. As soon as I figured out how to string words together on a page, I wrote, wrote, wrote. Stories I rarely finished, but would read out loud to my parents and my Aunt Peggy. Bless their hearts for listening.

    Never in all my life, though, did I consider making one of those stories an Amish story.

    Until I was invited to participate in a cool-sounding project with some authorly friends (waving to Cindy, Mindy, and Amanda) and my intrigued little heart couldn’t say no. I love trying new things and this was definitely new. And so, not only did I contribute my novella (Guiding Star) to the mix, I also wrote the prologue and the epilogue. It was great fun.

    Two. I have a Christmas novella out in the world.

    Granted, the Amish novella and the Christmas novella are one in the same. But still, it’s my first official Christmas story and you know what? I think it won’t be my last. I’m a fan of Christmas.

    You know what’s also kind of fun?

    Fans of my first two novels (Wildflowers from Winter and Wishing on Willows) will recognize one of the settings. Peaks makes a cameo, along with a couple characters readers should recognize. I won’t say who. You have to read to find out! #ohthetorture

    To celebrate these two fun firsts, how about a giveaway?

    (Since I’m too cheap to upgrade my Rafflecopter account, I can’t get the giveaway to start any earlier than midnight, October 21st, so if you’re reading this ahead of time, make sure to check back in!)

    Words of wisdom … from a novice who has learned some things the hard way.

    Don’t judge yourself by anyone else. Don’t even judge yourself by who you used to be.

    Far too many people look at this person or that person; the NY Times best-selling author, the millionaire, the pop star, the perfectly put-together mom. You are not them. Your life is not meant to be what theirs is. Something that might actually surprise you: sometimes that pop star wishes she knew what it was like to be a soccer mom with no make-up and a toddler clinging to her as she rushes to get the grocery shopping done.

    God has a plan for you. It may not be what you expected. It may not even be what you want, but it is the best thing for you – whether you know it or not.

    God knows you better than you could ever hope to know yourself. So, if anyone knows what is best for your life, it would be God!

    I had other plans for my novels. I had big plans, big aspirations, big … dreams. Thankfully, God knew better. God knew the path I needed to take. He knew the way, the when, and the how I needed to publish my novel.

    I won’t say that every single step I’ve taken has been 100% correct. And I’m absolutely certain they haven’t all been brilliant, but I have tried very hard to stick to His path for my life and so far – He has rewarded those efforts. He is opening doors I never could have.

    Will I attain the dreams I once had? As a CBA author it’s unlikely, but I will attain the dream that God has planted in my heart and that is definitely good enough for me.

    And I am so very blessed to have such exceptional authors like Katie (aka K.E.) backing me up, supporting me, befriending me, mentoring me.

    And we are blessed to be featured on Donna’s BookShelf this month. Be sure to check out her blog and enter her giveaway! There are some fantastic prizes – if I do say so myself.


    JC Morrows - A Reluctant Assassin CoverA Reluctant Assassin

    Her mission was simple — get close to the Prince, and kill him. . .

    Kayden entered the palace under a lie, one designed to get her close to the Prince. On the outside, she may look like a princess but beneath the mask, a killer lays in wait — for the perfect moment.

    Dvarius was not ready to take the crown, nor was he ready for a wife . . .

    But due to his father’s unexpected death and an archaic law — he must find a bride before he is allowed to take his rightful place on the throne.

    And the one woman he wants — just might be the one who is there to kill him…
