My Space(s):

My historical romance "A Southern Moon Rising" takes place during 1863, when the war between the states was down around Vicksburg, Mississippi


A Southern Moon Rising

ISBN: 978-1-897512- 15-9

While Edmond Anderson is working as a spy for President Lincoln, to undercover an assassination attempt, he's threatened with death by the plotters. Requesting safety from the President, he's quickly posted to the army and then to Vicksburg, Mississippi, for protection. Near Vicksburg, as the battle rages ferociously, he suffers a severe wound to his head. As he recovers from his injury, he is ordered to carry dispatches and suffers a bloody wound to his side. Seeking shelter at an isolated cabin, he meets a beautiful Southern Belle, Sara Wainwright, who steals his heart, which already belongs to another. While she detests all things Union, she discovers all Yankee's are not the same and falls in love with Edmond.

Torn between his loyalties to the Union or his love for Sara, Ed decides to desert the army and stay with the woman he loves more than life. When a small family of runaway slaves suddenly appears at Sara's door, she is unable to turn them away. Discovering the black man is a skilled blacksmith, she quickly establishes a thriving business. However, when a gang of Southern cutthroats visits the business, a customer and the two adult slaves are killed, but only after the woman is brutally raped. The deaths of the blacks leave their infant an orphan, who Sara protectively takes under her wing. The same raiders visit the surrounding area and late that night, the son of the man killed on Sara's farm comes for assistance, his whole family dead. Together the four of them head west—to Arizona territory. They soon discover the trip is easier to talk about than to make, due to Sara's pregnancy, Indians, grizzly bears, and Amos Wees, a man determined to rape Sara and kill Edmond.

New Website "Visual Impressions Media"

We grew tired of paying high prices when it came to media. We feel good quality photography, web design, graphic design, and book publishing does not have to be expensive. It just has to be good.

We, like most of you, are feeling the crunch of America's current economic slump, so we'll meet or beat anyone's offer to you, if it's for the same product. For instance, if you can get a 5 page personal web design for less than $200 and it matches or is better than… Continue
