My Handid Christmas

I am writing a book about Anna...

my ggg grandmother Anna that is. As many of you know I have done a lot of geneaology research and this pioneer grandmother has fascinated me the most. She was born in olde Virginia to families that were among the earliest settler's there. She bore many children and endured many hardships and when she was in her 70's she traveled by covered wagon to live in Indian Territory. I guess this book will be considered historical fiction as I have accurate dates of events but of course not being there I had to try to fill in the details so that will be the fictional part. The picture shows how I want the cover to look but.. I have discovered that having a book published is not as easy as I though it would be so the cover may change by the time it is published.

I am currently on chapter 13 and have no idea how many more chapters there will be.

I am hoping to have it finished soon as I think this book would make a great Christmas present for those that love the pioneer/ priairie look and lifestyle and enjoys reading about that era.

Stay tuned- hopefully it will be a finished book soon!!
