Historical Christmas anthology releases today!

My Civil War Christmas story, part of An American Rose Christmas anthology, officially releases in e-book format today–although it’s already out in print–from The Wild Rose Press.

Though all of the stories aren’t set in the Victorian time period–two are Colonial–they’re all American historicals and I’m proud my latest romance is part of this new anthology, which includes stories by Beth Trissel, Carol A. Spradling, Donna Dalton, Lauri Robinson, and Tori Anne.
My story starts at a Union army camp in Fredericksburg, Virginia and finishes at a lavish ball in Washington, D.C.  I was inspired by the story of Sarah Rosetta Wakeman, a woman who disguised herself as a man to serve in the Union Army during the Civil War, but I also used true accounts of other women Civil War soldiers to create my heroine Sara Brewster.

 Purchase from The Wild Rose Press.
And I’ll pick one lucky person from today’s comment to win a digital copy of An American Rose Christmas!

    What a beautiful cover for Christmas. I find it truly amazing how many women have fought as men throughout history.

  2. Thanks, Emma! It is a beautiful cover.

    I’ve been fascinated by the stories of women soldiers during the Civil War and enjoyed having a few of those warrior heroines in my romance stories.

  3. Emma Lai says:

    I have a whole book dedicated to women fighters. It’s called ALL THE DARING OF A SOLDIER.

  4. I have that one too, Emma! It’s a great read for anyone interested in women Civil War soldiers!

  5. Ivy says:

    Sounds good. My favorite set during that period is Ashes in the Wind….classic. Course “the late Unpleasantness” or “War of Northern Aggression” is still alive & well in many areas back home..

  6. Mary Ricksen says:

    And this cover is right on the front page of the promo loop! You can’t beat that!
    I can’t wait to read this anthology by some of my favorite writers. Good luck ladies! You know I wish you the best, always!

  7. Thanks for commenting, Ivy!

    And thanks Mary, that is so cool! I just had to go check and there is was! I love that cover…so Christmasy! LOL.

  8. All the stories in this anthology sound so good! Looking forward to reading the book on my e-reader when I get it in January.

  9. Joan K. Maze says:

    What a wonderful sounding book – and a great cover. I would love to read it.

  10. Lovely cover and great stories, I wish you and the other authors every success with it.

  11. Thanks for commenting, everyone! I’ll be announcing the winner of the pdf download shortly.
