Kickstarter was presented to me by a person in the grassroots film industry. With funds from generous folks like you, and this unique program, I intend for this trilogy to be used to share the love of life and family, while offering a hope that God's provision is available in all situations. It is my desire to market this trilogy to reach as many readers as possible, using the services of qualified techie people, of which I am not. Youtube, TV spots on a ladies' program on a San Antonio, Texas TV station, and strategic radio advertising spots will greatly facilitate the success of my project. I have an associate at the TV station working on an advertising package at present, and of course, only money is halting the progress of the knowledge of this trilogy. That is where you come in, if you feel inclined to donate. I ask that you please take a little more of your valuable time to read about my writings. Thanks!
' Two Sons ~ Two Daughters ~ Trilogy '...This fiction invokes a sense of family, finding one's true love, and a young woman's desire to know the reason for the existence of life itself. Following the lives of five families over the course of one hundred years, this trilogy encompasses suspenseful mysteries in each novel along with unlikely romantic developments. The births of twin sons in one part of Belgium and twin daughters in another part of that country set the stage for unforeseen intrigue and friction for all involved. Original revelations within Amelia's private journal entries, of her deepest questions and pondering, offer answers to questions one never knew to ask but what each ultimately searches out, in this great tale of over six-hundred pages. All three are lengthy novels of epic proportions and are filled with romance, mystery and a sprinkling of humor.
Book 1 / Amelia's Story...Amelia, a nanny to a wealthy shipbuilding family finds herself thrown into the middle of a subtle mystery. As time passes the hope of her future with a handsome but many years her senior, music tutor, is all but dashed, as Amelia's personal interests become intertwined with those unimaginable secrets in that mansion. Because of the love she feels for the dashing Parker Raulings, she is bent on discovering the truth of his foiled career.
Book 2 / Two Weddings...Life becomes intensely complex with these five families eventually merging. A grave disappointment resulting in a financial crisis places a strain on the relationships within the families. The possibility for a clever resolution to their situation makes for life altering careers, to which all must ultimately comply. Three love relationships come together, but strangers happen onto their doorstep and tend to expose failings in the integrity of these family members that dwell within the two mansions.
Book 3 / The Twins...Seventeen years have passed. The two sets of twins begin to spread their wings, beginning their adult lives. Long kept secrets by the step-mother and father of the twin sons are finally exposed and all but tear the family apart. Oddly enough, two become involved together in a romantic relationship, but the other twins make unusual decisions about their careers. Donovan eagerly travels to England in search of his future, intending never to darken the doorstep of his parents' home. Circumstances seem to be against him, as he is thrown headlong into a crime with a lovely young lady. Sadness, fear of imprisonment and death, within these close-knit family members, shake the love of that family to the core.
Book 4 / Future's End...After friends and family patiently read my drafted manuscripts, complete with editing notes, of the above three books of mine, it was pointed out to me that I wasn't yet finished. They wanted to hear more of it. So, I was inspired to pen a futuristic fourth book. This now is a trilogy, plus one series. Twins from Bethany's family line travel back to Raulings and Harris Estates, and tour the dilapidated mansion their ancestors had once live in. The place is crawling with agents lurking about, attempting to discover a long-held rumored plot to overthrow their government. Twin sisters get caught up in the drama and intrigue of discovery. Will their lives be spared? Will they learn of the plot before the agents? What is the plot, and will that government foil it, or will it succeed?
Fourteen years in the making, these novels have been my closet obsession. (Thirty-five years I've been writing in all. Please see: 'Normal' Sara Jane series on my website.) As a mother of ten and grandmother of thirteen and counting, I have stayed sane through the years with my writings, and have been blessed by continual encouragement from my family and friends.
The publishing process has been too expensive for our budget, even with print-on-demand, and with your support, who knows? Maybe one day I'll share with you that I have landed a publishing deal! Now that would be another dream come true for me, yours being my wildest dream come true! Please visit my website when you have the spare time and review the materials I've written. Thanks again for reading about my project. Will you consider building that stairway to my future?
