Pioneer Hearts – 50 Books and 45 Authors!

AMOB_Isabella_Web72Pioneer Hearts

This is a 50 book project, with 45 or so authors, each releasing a 35-45k book with a connecting initial premise. There will be an initial kickoff on November 1, with a Facebook party and release of the prequel. Then on November 19, the first book, by Kit Morgan will be released and every day, through January 7, a different book will be released, each set in a different state or territory, and the order of release corresponds with the order that state became a state.

The year is 1890, and the initial premise, with a prequel written by USA Today best-selling author, Kirsten Osbourne, is that these girls all work together in the Mill town of Lawrence, MA in a sweat shop environment where they are all seamstresses. A fire that levels the building and business puts the girls all out of work and without many options. In Beckham, MA, there is a match-maker, Elizabeth, that plants the idea with the girls of becoming mail-order brides. Each girl moves to a different state as a mail-order bride, and eventually finds love.

We are really excited about this project, which includes many bestselling authors, even a few New York Times and USA Today top sellers such as Debra Holland, Kirsten Osbourne, Callie Hutton and branching out from success in the cozy mystery genre, Leighann Dobbs. There are also many new rising stars in the western historical genre such as Cindy Caldwell, Hildie McQueen, Amelia Adams and Ashley Merrick, and many more.

The books share a common cover template of an American flag draped down the left side, for branding purposes and when the project launches in November, there will also be a dedicated page with all the covers in order of release and buy links.
