LOVE IS COME in Audio!

I'm really excited to announce that my historical romance LOVE IS COME is now available in audio. Last year when I listened to the Audible version of THE NIGHTINGALE by Kristin Hannah, I fell in love with the narrator's voice, Polly Stone. I looked up more information about her and discovered that she'd been awarded Audible Narrator of the Year in 2015 for that book. So my instincts weren't far off.

With some trepidation, I found contact information and emailed Polly Stone with an inquiry. She agreed to do the narration under her pen name Barbara Stewart, which she uses for independent projects. The book was recorded in July, and then after production and review, it finally went live yesterday!

The neat thing about Audible is that you can get the audio for only $13.97, or with 1 credit of you're a member. Or if you've already bought the Kindle or Paperback version, you'll get an additional discount. I hope you'll enjoy Polly Stone/Barbara Stewart as much as me ;-) Happy listening!

InD'Scribe Conference

I spent a long weekend in Burbank California at the InD'Scribe Conference attending great classes taught by Catherine Bybee, Jennifer Ashley, and more.

Here are some pictures...

Me with bestselling author Catherine Bybee... it turns out we're agent "sisters" which means we have the same agent. So I'm dressed up for a costume party (if you were wondering).

Me with amazing (and cute) writers Lori Cedergreen and Julie Brown (not my sister. lol.)

Although I've seen these ladies' books all over Amazon, this is the first time we were able to meet and get to know each other. Becky Monson is on the left and Jennifer Peel in the middle.

A pretty big surprise awaited me at the RONE awards. I won for Best Anthology with the All Hallows' Eve Collection, written with Sarah M. Eden, Annette Lyon, Elana Johnson, Jordan McCollum, and Lisa Mangum. 

Another nice surprise when I was able to have dinner with long, lost relatives that I rarely see. Frances Pumphrey and her mother came out from LA to visit.

Good friend author Julie Bellon is on the left, and TJ Mackay--the conference director queen--is in the middle.

On submission: RUTH

I recently submitted my newest manuscript, a Biblical novel based on Ruth's story from the Book of Ruth. This is my submission letter to my publisher:

Dear ***,

I’m excited to submit my Biblical novel, RUTH, for your consideration. The manuscript is complete at about 70,000 words and follows the story of Ruth and her mother-in-law Naomi, as they face family tragedy together. Ruth leaves behind everything she knows in the land of Moab when she vows to return with Naomi to Bethlehem and take care of her. When they reach Bethlehem, destitute and troubled, Ruth works day and night to provide for Naomi. The kindness and generosity of their kinsman Boaz becomes a great blessing when Ruth is allowed to glean in his fields. As Ruth gets to know Boaz, she finds that her broken heart is starting to heal in ways she had never imagined. But when Ruth is faced with redeeming Naomi’s inheritance, Ruth may have to give up the last piece of her heart in order to forever secure their future.

I hope you enjoy the story, and I look forward to hearing from you.

All my best,
Heather Moore

I'm really excited to show the cover of LAKE TOWN (Book 2 in the Solstice series), written under my YA pen name Jane Redd.

I worked with fabulous cover artist Claudia McKinney (Phatpuppyart), who was the same artist for Solstice and Heart of the Ocean. I was able to secure an exclusive photo of Will Jardell, of America's Top Model fame, with photographer Grace Hill. Rachael Anderson did the final cover design.

Coming in October 2016!

USA TODAY bestseller!

Excited to announce that MAIL ORDER BRIDE COLLECTION, an anthology that I wrote a novella for and published through my indie press, Mirror Press, hit the USA Today bestsellers list July 7, 2016. This is the 2nd time that one of my publications has hit the list. I've written a detailed blog post about what it takes for an indie author to get on a national bestsellers list, and I've added updates on the process Mail Order Bride went through.
