Coming Soon . . . RANSOME’S QUEST

Friday, July 1, 2011

It’s almost here! Just one more month until the release of the third and final installment in the Ransome Trilogy:

Ransome’s Quest

Beginning today and continuing for the remaining four Fridays in July (yes, July has five Fridays!), I’ll be featuring different aspects of the background, characters, settings, and story inspiration behind Ransome’s Quest—and drawing two names from the comments on each of those posts to win a signed copy of Ransome’s Quest.
(So there will be ten books given away—be sure to comment early and often!) Comments must be posted before 10 p.m. Central time on Sunday evening to be eligible for that week’s drawing.

A couple of months ago, I posted the prologue and first chapter of Ransome’s Quest as a sneak-peek, which you can read here:
Fun Friday–Sneak Peek at RANSOME’S QUEST

Now, while I do have some new characters and settings to introduce to you, I want to know: What are your burning questions about Ransome’s Quest and/or The Ransome Trilogy which I can answer for you over the next month?

Before we get started with any new information, let’s take a journey to the past with the background posts on the previous two books:

Ransome’s Honor
The Original (deleted) First Scene of Ransome’s Honor
An Unused Ransome Prologue
RANSOME’S HONOR: The Inspiration & Road to Publication
RANSOME’S HONOR: The Character Casting Process
RANSOME’S HONOR: A Regency Dinner Party
MENU and RANSOME Questions Answered

Ransome’s Crossing
#KissingDayBlogFest Entry: A Kissing Scene from RANSOME’S CROSSING
RANSOME’S CROSSING–Character Introductions
RANSOME’S CROSSING–Officer Ranks and Uniforms
RC & LR Questions Answered

Don’t forget . . . I’ll be drawing two winners from the comments left on today’s post (drawing will be at 10 p.m. Central time on Sunday 7/3, so post your comments before then).

    My mom and I are avid readers. I can’t wait to tell her about the latest in this series. I’ve enjoyed the first two and I’m sure the last will be just as great!

    Keep up the good work!

    I am so excited! I have been waiting for such a long time for this (or so it seems). I have all sorts of questions, but I’m thinking they will be answered in the book. So they are more like predictions than anything else. Thanks so much for writing!

    Looking forward to reading Ransom’s Quest! Can’t wait to see how the series ends!

    I own and read the previous two novels in this series and they were very well written. I would love to win the third to make my collection complete. I own an eReader, but I still love having certain books in hard copy. I need to go back and reread the other two to catch up again. It seems like it took forever for this one to get done. Can’t wait to read it. Please enter me in the contest and God bless. 🙂 Debbie Mitchell

    All my burning questions would be classified as “spoilers” if you answered them. Alas, I’ll just have to wait for the book to come out! Very excited!

    This looks like an interesting story. I will have to check it out.


  16. Friday, July 1, 2011 5:52 pm

    I am really looking forward to it! Can’t wait!

    I still have to read Ransome’s Honor which I have on my tbr pile but I loved the first book and am looking forward to reading the second and this last one. I love this era with the naval aspect of the story adding the pirates adds to the story.

    I’m looking forward to reading this book and to see what happens to the characters. You don’t need to enter my name into the drawing. I plan to buy this book and have already won the other two previously.

    By the way. I am glad to see the start of your new series on the counter. I hope and pray you can find a publisher for your books soon.

      I knew if anyone would notice the new counter, it would be you!

    Now that the third on the series is about to come out, I will reread the first two. I don’t want to forget any of the details. I enjoy all your series.

    It’s a wonderful trailer! I’m so looking forward to this next book!


  22. Saturday, July 2, 2011 1:49 am

    Yay!! Been waiting for this one for forever! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of it! Totally gives me an excuse to re-read the other two. lol


  23. Saturday, July 2, 2011 2:10 pm

    I’d love to start reading the entire series. I’ll post a review on my blog if I win the book. I really want to read your books.

    What an awesome way to showcase your trilogy. I love the deleted scenes idea, too. Just like the extras on a DVD.

    Well done!

    I’m so excited about Ransome’s Quest! I’m sixteen, and finding well-written Christian novels appropriate for my age can be a tedious task. Last summer, I found Ransome’s Honor at our library and drawn to the book immediately. I was extremely upset when I found I would have to order Ransome’s Crossing because it wasn’t yet purchased for our library…so…I had to wait a full 3 weeks (or possibly longer 🙂 for it to come in!!! –Oh the suspense! — …It did finally come in and enjoyed it almost as much as the first one 🙂 Thank you so very much for writing this great series! God is definitely working through your life and ministry! –Jeremiah 29:11

    Thank you so much
