All of this is just part of what is happening as we are ramping up to introduce, Counting the Cost, Liz's powerful new novel based on her own family history. As the book is in its final edit and we are working on the design of the cover, it really feels like history in the making! It's a beautiful story and it's going to look beautiful as well! I believe Counting the Cost is Liz's best work yet, one that will not only bring a small piece of history to life and pay tribute to all that makes up our nation's Western heritage, but that also reaches deep into the hearts of strong, interesting characters and, in so doing, teaches each reader insightful lessons for life. Indeed, for each of us, doesn't life come down to the cost of our choices?
To receive updates about the progress of Counting the Cost, come back to this blog or sign up for updates by going to www.inglestonepublishing.com anytime after June 1.
