Happy News

I know I haven't been able to blog much this past year, but for those who still pop by occasionally to see what's new, I wanted to share some happy news.

I've signed a contract with Marcher Lord Press to release new editions of the Sword of Lyric series books. While it's great to get the books back in print, I'm especially excited about adding some bonus scenes, behind-the-scenes notes, and other surprise features that will make the new editions extra special.

And - to answer the question I find most frequently in my emails each week - yes, I have been working on a fourth book, as well. I had several chapters of the fourth book written a few years ago before health issues sidelined me. Whenever I'm able, I do a bit more work on it, and have made a tiny bit of progress. It's slow going, but I'm not giving up. :-)

Meanwhile, have a blessed Christmas, and may you feel the presence of Emmanuel - "God with us" - throughout each moment of every day.

His,
Sharon Hinck

I too am very excited about a book 4. I just ordered all 3 on Amazon. I keep going back to the library and checking them out again!

I just keep getting drawn back over and over. It's time to have my own copies.

I am so terribly far behind in congratulating you on this, Sharon, but I have been rejoicing with you since the news was made public! You are such a gem, and I'm delighted to see your heart will continued to be shared with more readers!

Thank you so much to everyone who posted.

When my energy is low, I treasure the enthusiasm from others...it really stirs the desire to give of my best in each little window when I can work.

I'm finishing a sixth bonus scene this week, and beginning a seventh devotional article based on themes in the first book. How I hope these new elements will be a blessing for readers!
