7 Quick Takes Friday – Miscellaneous Quick Takes

7_quick_takes_sm1Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday, where we share seven quick posts!

1. A World Such as Heaven Intended
Currently working on edits for the new FQP book, A World Such as Heaven Intended by Amanda Lauer. Tentative release date: October 28. Check out the novel website here. Synopsis: The Civil War tore the United States apart and many friendships and families as well. In A World Such as Heaven Intended Amara McKirnan and Nathan Simmons share a devotion to their Catholic faith but their loyalties lie on opposite sides of the conflict. Dedicated to the Confederate cause, Amara offers to help out at her uncle’s makeshift hospital in Atlanta. Fate brought Nathan to their doorstep and into Amara’s life. Little does Amara know that the wounded soldier she cares for harbors a secret that will not only jeopardize his life but hers as well. Follow Amara and Nathan’s story from the heart of war-torn Atlanta to the Northern Georgia battlefields to the plains of East Texas as their lives become intertwined in a way that shatters the separate worlds they once knew.

4. Research, Research, Research
I’ve been doing a lot of research for my upcoming short novel, Julia’s Gifts. It’s a World War I romance between an American nurse and a Canadian soldier. Tentative release date is Fall of 2015. Research is one of my favorite parts of writing historical fiction. The National Film Board of Canada’s youtube channel has been tremendously helpful.
