I haven’t forgotten my promise to do a cover reveal as part of today’s festivities. ♥ There’s a Threshold Series sequel in the works, slated for release later this fall. Pursuing Prissie takes place ten years after The Blue Door, when Prissie experiences an angelic reprise.
Before I reveal the cover, how about another little snippet? This is excerpted from Chapter 1: The Usual Things.
“Jasper Reece, are you crazy?” Prissie asked, eyeing the small mountain of baked goods heaped beside the register.
“Just hungry, ma’am.”
“Don’t you ma’am me.” Twenty-four wasn’t old enough to be ma’am-ed. Especially by one of her little brother’s best friends.
“Grandmama taught me manners, and I’m not afraid to use ’em!” Jasper replied, all sass and sweet talk. “You wouldn’t turn away a hungry customer, now, would you?”
Jasper’s whole family was close as kin to the Pomeroys. Pearl Matthews, who worked the register every morning at Loafing Around, was Jasper’s aunt. And Jasper had been friends with Prissie’s brother Zeke ever since they were both in diapers in First Baptist Church’s nursery. She supposed that made these two high school seniors lifelong friends. Although normally they were a dynamic trio. “Where’s Timothy?”
“He’s got lessons,” Jasper replied, miming a trombone. “Which definitely works up an appetite.” Leaning over to inspect the contents of the glass bakery case, he pointed. “I’ll take those last two cupcakes. And all the cookies, too.”
“Did Zeke put you up to this?”
“Yep. Pitched in, too. Three-way split.” Jasper drew himself up to his full height, which was impressive. He’d be the West Edinton Warriors’ best linebacker this season. “It’s simple, Prissie. If you sell out, you lock up. Don’t you want to call it a day?”
She smiled wearily. “Yes.”
Jasper knew he’d won. “Don’t fuss with boxes. We’ll eat straight out of the case. Won’t leave a crumb. I swear.”
If you’ve read Rough and Tumble, you’ll remember Jasper and Timothy, Zeke’s two best friends. They’re just a few of the familiar faces from the Threshold Series who have a role to play in the new adventure.
And now… a look at the cover for Pursuing Prissie… which will be the first of (at least) three Pomeroy Family Legacy stories.
Curious? It never hurts to ask! I’m willing to part with teaser-like tidbits. But no spoilers. If I can’t say, I’ll throw flowers at you. ✿
