Guess who’s coming to Amish country?
Since Macmillan never got a pre-sale button up for Temptation (apparently things didn’t go so smoothly with the changeover in distribution, but we’ll all be better for it in the end) I thought I’d offer a bit of a teaser here. Here’s the beginning:
God regularly sent temptation to the town of Serenity, in the form of power tools, brightly colored sewing notions, and a new Super Wal-Mart. But when Hollywood arrived, some felt He’d upped the ante. Their loud SUVs, loose wads of cash, and flashy Englisher ways made the tourists who regularly flocked to Amish country seem reserved in comparison.
Of course, there were some who’d cashed in on the invasion, including old Levi Yoder, who offered his preserves at twice the price he’d charged before. But after Deacon Malachi preached against price gouging, the rest hung their heads in shame for even thinking of tacking on a Hollywood surcharge.
Though few of the Amish had ever seen a movie, and even fewer read celebrity gossip columns, the aura of Hollywood still sparkled like forbidden stardust. Yet one woman had no trouble seeing through the stardust to the illusion underneath.
Now I’m going to be a tease and make you wait until tomorrow to read the rest!
Don’t forget, if you’re reading this on the 15th of February (in any time zone on Earth!) you can still enter to win my giveaway. Tomorrow I’ll pick one winner.
tomorrow February 18 Temptation will be released! Oh, yeah, I’m also getting a hair cut. Big day for me!
Update: Just found out I was given the wrong date. It’s the 18th. Sorry about that.
