The Blessed Month of May

by Marsha Ward

God has treated me very well during May this year:

My novella, Faith and the Foreman, was published in theTimeless Romance Anthology: Old West Collection to good reviews and high placement on Amazon's lists (thus making me a "best selling author")

I've been making good progress on finishing my current novel work-in-progress, Gone for a Soldier

I received word that my last novel, Spinster's Folly, was named a Finalist for Western Fiction in the International Book Awards

I participated in a multi-author sale that netted me book sales beyond my wildest imaginations

One of my short stories, Cottonwood Cowboys, not only got price-matched by Amazon when I made it free at, without any action on my part (such as begging my friends to let Amazon know about the free status of the story on other retail outlets), but suddenly rose to the top of the free Western Short Stories List and remained there for several days. Woohoo! #1!

That reiterates my status as a best-downloaded author, so I'm very grateful for the blessings I've seen this month. I've got to get back to work on GFAS.

What has been your most blessed month?


  1. Wow! You have had a magnificent month! Go Marsha! I downloaded Cottonwood Cowboys and look forward to reading it soon. And of course, I'm drooling for Gone For a Soldier! Wishing you a Happy writing, editing, publishing summer. hugs~

  2. Congrats; however, no it's just not my month lol
