COMING SOON!  Book 4 in the Threshold Series will release on Tuesday, January 28, 2014, only 1 more week from today. To count down, I’ve been doing posts each Tuesday to share newsy tidbits, sketches, and story art. Since January 21 is Prissie Pomeroy’s birthday (how’s that for providential?), I’ve prepared a game. And you can play along! ✿

The Garden GateThe Pomeroys pull together in the aftermath of the storm that shook West Edinton—and Prissie’s faith—to its very foundations. Letting go proves difficult, and holding on takes all of her courage. With the encouragement of a brother who’s in on her secret, Prissie finds her feet. With the help of the bane who’s now a brother, she takes a stand. As spring comes to the orchard, a cryptic remark from Abner hints at West Edinton’s long-kept secret. A beloved aunt returns from overseas. A faded angel takes up residence atop the Pomeroys’ refrigerator. A treasured friend must say goodbye. While ranks of the Faithful rally to defend what’s most precious, Prissie discovers that angels aren’t the only ones who are Sent. [Available in hardcover and e-book editions.]

Happy Birthday, Miss Priss! Over the course of the Threshold Series, Prissie turns fifteen. When I took the time to calculate the exact date of her birth (it’s seventy days after Beau’s special day), we landed here. January 21. And in true Pomeroy fashion, I’ve devised some fun in the form of a game.

Yellow Envelope

The rules are simple:
♦ Find an envelope. Click on it to see what I’ve hidden “inside.”

♦ How many are there? If you can track them all down, you’ll have six.
♦ Have I doomed you to wander aimlessly though 500+ posts? Nah. I wrote clues!
♦ Does it matter what order you find them in? Nope, not at all!

    • Hint: Back in 2012, I wrote an epic. Chapters were inspired by’s Word of the Day. And they were posted here on my blog. One a day for 366 days (it was a Leap Year). Clue #3 alludes to this story.
