Gold Nuggets, my last Gold Rush novel, is released today!
In case you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the blurb:
In the shadow of Denali, she has a home, and he finds adventure. Charlotte Cooper wants to stay near her parents’ home in Alaska. But her dreams of being a writer call her away to college or work, and she has to choose her own path in life.
Henry Reeves is a wealthy New Yorker seeking a summer adventure when he travels to Kantishna near the proposed Mt. McKinley National Park. He discovers two passions, one for Charlotte, and the other for keeping Alaska wildlife from being wiped out like the buffalo.
Charlotte and Henry find an attraction they can’t deny, but can they build a new life together between the wilderness and high society?
Here’s my favorite quote from the book:
Henry was pleased that his horse, a mare named Mabel, responded quickly to slight pulls on the reins or nudges from his knees. She was a good companion and a pleasure to ride.
“Good horse here, thank you. This looks like a well-traveled trail. Are there a lot of people who utilize it?”
“Nope, mostly bears use it. Keep your eyes peeled.”
I wish I could give real gold nuggets to everyone who played a part in this journey. I owe a big thanks to Prism Book Group’s Joan Alley and Lisa Lickel for editing the book. I also want to thank all my writing friends with AKRWA, SCBWI-Alaska, YARWA, and Prism. They were a big help in writing critiques when I was drafting the book, and giving encouragement and promo help once it was written. And last but not least, I thank the readers and fans who have supported me through the whole Gold Rush series. You have been an awesome group, and I am very lucky to have you!
You’ll be able to buy a print or ebook copy at several online venues. Learn more and see links at the Prism Book Group page:
I’ll be at the Shootout Under the Midnight Sun match with the Alaska 49ers in Birchwood this weekend. And Fairbanks, Alaska residents can see me up there on July 14 for an Alaska Writers Guild program.
