"It always blesses me"

Mary

I just want my readers to know how blessed I am when you write me and say, "I couldn't put your book down!" or "When's the next one coming out?".

Those are the two most common comments. I give God all the glory for these stories. He has given me a creativity I never knew I possessed. What fun, to do something people enjoy and feel so blessed doing it at the same time! Although only four are published so far, I am in the middle of my eighth. So readers…keep reading! 

Blessings,

Mary Ann

"I love the truths"

Mary

 I love the truths you tuck in the story that teach powerful principles that find me saying bravo!!! And I love your descriptions. You're the first author that I have thoroughly enjoyed you describing the decores and scenery. You make a room come alive to me and I want to redecorate my house with your colors.

"I'm at the part with Liberty,"

Mary

So I'm at my mom's, where I'm staying while I attend the NWCWA writers' conference. First thing she says is, "I'm at the part with Liberty, and I'm so glad she's in the book. And I think Matthew is the man who lost his memory."

She's having such a great time with Caitlin's Fire! It's such a joy to see this! I had to share.

Hope you're feeling better!

Blessings,

Dori (my editor at Breakout Editing)

 

"Eden's Portion"

Mary

I know it's been awhile since I blogged. I need to get better at it! Life has a way of pushing in and when I have time, it seems I'm writing!

Some of you participated in a contest for book 6, (whenever it comes out)! Book 4 will be out this spring. It's at my son, Andrew's, for internal design and cover work. It's Caitlin's FireTory's Father is the name of book 5 and the name of book 6 will be Eden's Portion. It had a significantly higher vote than Sunrise Canyon. I like both names, so it didn't matter which one won.

Thanks to those of you who participated…it was fun!  mak

 

Name that Book!

Mary

For those of you who didn't participate on Facebook, or even if you did, please vote on the name for book six. I know, I know, Caitlin's Fire, my fourth isn't out yet, but I'm thinking ahead. I have completed my seventh manuscript. I have named book five, Tory's Father. Book six is either Eden's Portion or Sunrise Canyon.  You get to pick.

Not the best at Blogging!

Mary

I know I'm not the best at blogging, but I am going to do better for those of you who are interested! I know I have a lot of fans out there, but I have neglected you as far as blogging goes. Please forgive me…I will do better in the future! :)

 

"The covers on my books"

Mary

Some of you may wonder, without checking, how the covers on my books are so eye-catching. My youngest son, Andrew, is a graphic designer in Portland, OR. His speciality is branding, but it seems everything he does makes a body pause and look.

When I sent Liberty's Inheritance to Tate Publishing, I told Andrew, "If they put a woman's face on the cover, I'm going to be upset!" He sent me the train and asked, "How do you like this?" I liked it so well, I sent it to Tate and then told him afterward. All eight graphic designers voted on Andrew's cover. It has made my books even more special to me.

After Liberty's Inheritance came out, he gave me the picture on the back, of Matthew's Rancho, for a Christmas Present. This past Christmas I got a framed picture of Liberty's Heritage which fit into my livingroom's theme of lighthouses and fisherman.

Another bonus to not having a woman's face on the cover is that men are enjoying the stories, too. I didn't think of it before, but I don't think a man would pick up the book if a woman's face was on it.

"I have an editor!"

Mary

Today I hired Dori Harrell, a freelance editor at Breakout Editing. I am so excited to have such a talented and professional editor to edit my stories. She is a Christian, which is a necessity for me. I have complete confidence she will make my books even better for my readers. You can check her out online at doriharrell.wix.com/breakoutediting; it's a beautiful website. She has tons of writing experience and will be a perfect fit for me.

You, my readers, deserve the best I have to offer and having my stories professionally edited will make a better read for you! 

God Bless you!

Mary

 

"As you can surmise,"

Mary

As you can surmise, I want the fourth book when it comes out. I read the last two in a week. They are such terrific books. Waiting anxiously for the next one.

"Liberty's Heritage, loved every page!

Mary

I have just finished your third book, Liberty’s Heritage, and loved every page!  The way you wove the previous books into this third book was incredible.  I have never read a book that was both a sequel and prequel to a previous book in a series-very creative and well done!  I bonded with your new characters and gained a deeper appreciation of the previous characters.  Most of all, I treasured how each characters that had a relationship with God, spoke to God and shared his or her love to Him in their own unique ways.  Just as God loves each of us individually, we can share our love to Him in our own individual ways.  I am looking forward to the next book!

"I find myself intrigued"

Mary

I received books 2 & 3 last Saturday (we didn't get the mail until late since we were out of town).  I had read them both by Thursday night.  You have a special gift.  I find myself intrigued with the mysteries that play out, but I'm also sheddng tears of joy with the reunions you've created.  I can't wait for #4 this summer.  I do hope you continue to find a place for Liberty, her family and others as you proceed.  I appreciate the godly dispositions of the Christian characters and how they handle the issues that confront them.  Likewise, how they pause to give thanks for His protection and guidance.

I purchased a copy of "LIberty's Inheritance" for my sister who lives in Manhattan, KS.  Hopefully after she reads #1, she'll want to continue and also share you with her friends.

"Couldn't put it down!"

Mary

I've had Liberty's Inheritance for over a year. I just picked it up the other day and couldn't stop reading. I stayed up late and then after I got what I needed to get done the next morning I started reading some more. I finished it and loved the train trip west with Liberty and Maggie. I also can't wait to start the second one because there has to be something more about that ormolu clock! Thanks for such a good read, Mary Ann Kerr. Keep them coming.

"Liberty's Heritage"

Mary

Wow, wow and wow! I loved Liberty's Heritage. It made me laugh, it made me cry and I couldn't put it down, but I didn't want it to end. Please, Mary Ann Kerr, keep writing! I love your books!

Mary,

Thank you for your amazing book! I loved it and couldn't put it down. In our household a book has to be that way or I don't get back to it! I can't wait for book 2

"Liberty's Land is Coming Soon!"

Mary

MARY.2-LibertysLand.png

Hey there, readers of Liberty's Inheritance,

I can officially say Liberty's Land is in the works and hopefully will be out by the first of June!

I am so excited. This is the book that deals with white female slavery which was at its peak in 1885 from Europe. Liberty is building her house, learning to cook, growing to love her newly found father and grandmother. You won't want to miss Liberty's Land!
