forged by sacrifice coming soon

Oh holy guac, I was so excited to give this to my newsletter followers! They got a FREE EXCLUSIVE First Look at bonus material from Forged by Sacrifice!!!! Not a subscriber, but still want it? No worries, the link will take you to a signup page, and then you can download.


Did you download? Are you as excited as I am? I hope so. Plus, I’ve finally set a date for Mac and Georgie’s actual release. It’s October 22! Which isn’t very far away. Want to make sure you don’t miss it when it comes out? Add it to your “Want to Read” shelf in Goodreads, and you’ll get notified on the day of its release.

I’m still working on finalizing a cover for it with Megan at Designed with Grace. We may have something for you soon! Final edits are in the works, and I can’t wait for you to meet some of the brand new characters in Forged who have inspired (and will eventually get) their own Anchor Novel. As you know, my stories always have music tied to the chapters. I’ve got thirty-one songs for Forged typed into the chapter titles as we speak. Earlier this summer, I added the first 4 songs to the Spotify playlist. I’ve added two more now. I’ll be adding a few each week all the way up to release week. You can add it to your Spotify lists here:

Okay, I really have to get back to planning for the 1st graders, but I’ve got a couple more things to tell you before I disappear.


I was so excited that the two giveaways I was doing with other authors in July and early August found winners in folks that are my followers! Woot, woot to them for getting Amazon Gift Cards that they could buy bookish things with! Plus, at the beginning of the month, I did my Christmas After July where 24 of my followers got books! Yes! Maybe you should share my newsletter signup form with some other people you think might want to continue to get books and bookish money? Here’s the link, just in case you do want to share: LJs Newsletter Signup to Share: http://bit.ly/LJEvansNL This month, I’m doing an Instagram signed book giveaway with me, myself, and I. EIGHT SIGNED books from Alessandra Torre, Lauren Blakely, Kennedy Fox, CD Reiss, Megan Hart, Rachel Higginson, and Helen Hardt PLUS My Life as a Country Album are up for grabs.

My number one Hot Book this month is Kelsey Kingsley’s rock star, inspirational romance, FORGET THE STARS, that releases August 26th. Holy gadzooks, I loved Chad and Molly. I also loved that Kelsey shed light on a health issue that most people shy away from. It’s that whole, live life resiliently, theme that I obviously adore. AND, you get to see the Sebastian from THE LIFE WE WANTED https://amazon.com/dp/B07N4N7JMM/, and all the gang of Devin’s band.
