Lisa Mangum, one of Shadow Mountain's editors, posted this message on a facebook group I belong to:
Shadow Mountain is now accepting pitches for a Christmas novella. Manuscripts must be complete (between 33K and 43K words). To be considered, please Tweet your pitch via Twitter using the hashtag #SMChristmas. Pitches will be accepted until , at .
If you don’t have access to Twitter, please submit your pitch email@example.com with the subject line “Christmas Novella Pitch.” Pitches should still be no more than 140 characters in length, however.
We will review the pitches and then contact the authors from whom we would like to see a full manuscript.
We are looking for well-written, heartwarming Christmas stories that will tug at our heartstrings, bolster our faith in the true meaning of Christmas, and encourage readers to spread Christmas cheer to their friends and neighbors.

My new publisher, Covenant Communications, has just published a small Christmas book of true, short stories, titled With Wondering Awe. My story, "The Christmas Coat," is included.The book doesn't cost much more than a greeting card, but it has so much more to touch the heart. I think it would make a great stocking stuffer or similar, "Thinking of You" gift. Click here to find it on Amazon.

Although it's been a long time since I wrote here, I have been busy writing books. :) First, I published my 3rd book in my Heroes of Highest Order series , titled, "The Mouth of the Dragon." Click here to link to Amazon.
Second, in December 2013, my publisher, Covenant Communications, are publishing a book of true Christmas stories, titled With Wondering Awe, written by several of their authors. My story, "The Christmas Coat", will be in that book.
Third, Covenant will publish my third suspense novel, Betrayed, in June 2014. Check back for more details on each of these books.
Meanwhile, I have been trying to figure out how to increase my writing output, so I have written the first draft of my fourth suspense novel and am now writing the first draft of a fantasy novel while I let my suspense novel "sit" so I can edit it with new, less-biased eyes. I am 64,000 words into what I hope will ultimately be between 70,000 and 80,000 words that I can edit down to 70,000 because it is a YA novel. But all that info is probably better left for another post. Until next time . . .

THE PRISONER OF THE SHADOWS IS FREE ON SATURDAY
The ebook version of THE PRISONER OF THE SHADOWS, #2 in my chapter book series, Heroes of the Highest Order, will be free at Amazon on Saturday, December 15! Here's the link: It's FREE!
Also, I recently released #3, THE MOUTH OF THE DRAGON and a bundle for all three books. I've given you the Amazon links, but they are available at Barnes and Noble and Smashwords.com.
Here are quick blurbs about both books:
THE PRISONER OF THE SHADOWS: Dan and Page search the catacombs in Italy, race through the streets of India, and follow in the footsteps of Mother Teresa in order to rescue their grandfather fro the Prison of the Shadows.
THE MOUTH OF THE DRAGON: Tadeusz Pankiewicz, a real-life hero, helps Dan and Page rescue two children from the Nazis in World War II Poland.

While I'm finishing up rewrites for my third romantic suspense novel, Betrayed, I am also finishing up and preparing to publish my 2nd Chapter book in my Heroes of the Highest Order Series which I publish under the name RK Hinrichsen. It's titled The Prisoner of the Shadows. Here is its cover (which I love) by the talented Deirdra Eden Coppel and a quick blurb:
Dan and Page race through the Catacombs of Rome to the Streets of Calcutta to rescue their grandfather from the Prison of the Shadows.
