A Million Little Choices

&

Tamera's 3rd and final novel in the beloved Carnton series (title TBA)

(covers will be shared as soon as they're ready)

Dear friends,

Many of you have asked, "Why is it taking so long to write the third Carnton book?"

Well, while writing Carnton book 3, I was contacted by Focus on the Family to be part of a new contemporary fiction line with them, along with authors Chris Fabry and Angela Hunt. And with Jerry Jenkins as the lead editor. After I made sure they hadn't called the wrong number, I quickly signed on. All three books are set to release in November 2023!

A Million Little Choices—my first contemporary, first first-person-POV, and first dual-story line novel—is a story I'm especially eager to share with you.

The stories that have lived inside me the longest are often the most difficult to write, and A Million Little Choices was certainly that. Not only because of the subject matter—marriage and infidelity—but because these characters are all so real to me and the settings so tangible, that "first words on the page" often felt frustratingly inadequate and thin compared to the living, breathing movie inside me.

Thankfully I enjoy rewriting and honing, and I never want to offer God something that's cost me nothing (2 Samuel 24:24 ). Still, I am beyond grateful to have this book written, edited, and back to the publisher. Whew!

Meanwhile, I'm happily returning to the beloved Carnton setting to finish the third and final novel in that series. Care to guess who it's about? I'll give you a hint...

She's the cute little red-haired scamp in Colors of Truth —pictured below on the cover with her older sister Catriona.
Yep, it's Nora O'Toole all grown up!

Writing Nora as an adult is a trip, and she more than meets her romantic match in this story. Not to mention we'll wrap up the real Carnton history and walk the familiar halls and rooms of that house together one last time.

Carnton 3 has a scheduled release of Summer 2023.

Thank you for entrusting your time to me. It's a gift I treasure and never take for granted.

Much love from Nashville,

Tamera
