Happy Saturday, Peeps!
Now, you may be asking yourself, “Why am I getting a Penprints post on a Saturday? Has that girl completely gone out of her tree?”. Well, I can’t say anything for certain on that last part, BUT I am here in your inbox (that sounds really weird) burdened with glorious purpose.
Abigayle Claire of The Left-Handed Typist has a book releasing next month!!!!
And today, the cover is revealed for said novel which is titled Martin Hospitality.
But, because I’m cruel, we’re going to go through all the fun bookish details before I let you see the lovely cover (okay, I’m not that cruel at all since I’ve already been blasting the cover across my social media, but whatevs).
So, sadly, Martin Hospitality will not be available for purchase until February 4, BUT at least that’s only a couple weeks away! So, I assume all of you will stay up with me on February 3 to order Martin Hospitality at the stroke of midnight.
“But, Rosalie,” you sigh. “What makes you think that we should stay up with you and order Martin Hospitality as soon as humanly possible?”
Peeps, I’m so glad you asked because that leads straight into the next part of this post….
Gemma Ebworthy is eighteen, pregnant, and alone. Now that she’s been evicted, she spends the night in a barn, never dreaming that tomorrow could bring kindness of a life-changing magnitude.
The Martins aren’t a typical family—even for rural Kansas. With more kids than can be counted on one hand and a full-time farm, Gemma must make a lot of adjustments to fit in. But despite their many differences, Gemma finds herself drawn to this family and their radical Christian faith.
When Gemma’s past collides with her yet again, she must begin revealing her colorful history. With every detail Gemma concedes, she fears she will lose the Martins’ trust and the stable environment she desires for herself and her unborn child. Just how far can the Martins’ love and God’s forgiveness go?
The Lovely Author:
Abigayle has been inspired to write since she could spell her own name. Her passion wasn’t completing the stories (she did that twice and decided it wasn’t for her), it was jotting down the ideas.
But in 2015, a story grabbed her–one she had to finish. Inspired by a crazy dream in a genre she no longer read, Abigayle set off on a journey to write her first novel and she hasn’t looked back since.
Writing is her ministry, freelance editing her job, and reading her pastime–all of which are proof that God really does know what He’s doing when He inspires a 6-year-old with a pencil in her left hand.
Isn’t it lovely? *happy sigh* I, for one, cannot wait to read it because 1) the story sounds so good and sweet and full of love 2) because of this cover. I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, but I kind of am. And I’m not ashamed of it.
Have a merry weekend! I’ll be back on Monday!
