If you enjoy the the wind on your face and open sky before you, you have come to a good place to find the romance and flavor of the West.

Jane Kirkpatrick, an author worth reading

One of my favorite historical fiction authors is Jane Kirkpatrick. I enjoy reading interviews with her to get insights into her writing world. Joyce Hart, Jane Kirkpatrick's agent at Hartline Literary Agency, posted a good one.

I checked at my local library to see which books they had on the shelves by Jane Kirkpatrick. They didn't have any. WHAT! This is unacceptable! As a writer, I want good writing and stories available through the public library.

I marched over to the reference desk where you leave book purchase requests and handed the librarian a complete list of Jane's books. They now have ordered several and I’ll receive notification when they are available for check out.

At my local library, patrons can pick out a book and place it on the shelves next to the line for checkout for all to see and check out. Jane's books will soon start appearing there. My local library reached the one-millionth item checked out in July. We are heading toward a two million-item checkout year by December 2009.

So check out Jane Kirkpatrick's books, purchase them, and then ask your public library to purchase them.

Have a blessed day in the Lord,

Love it, AJ!

Thanks for 'showing' us how to do that! I've got my own list and will request my library to do the same.

About Me

I love the wind in my face, the open sky before me, the romance and flavor of the West, but, most of all, our loving and living God, who created it all. I love how He works out His plans in the realm of human events, which is His Story. I have been blessed with a gift: a compulsion to write Historical and present-day novels set in the American West that demonstrate His power to transform ordinary people into true heroes and heroines. I am just a scribe really. I find the joy of participating in the creation of inspirational fiction indescribable. May our Lord Jesus Christ receive all of the credit and be glorified.
