"The Dragons of Alsace Farm" is in the Kindle Scout Competition!!!

Dear friends,

I could use your help.

After a long hiatus, I’ve returned to publishing. In order to expedite my new book’s release to market, I entered it into the Kindle Scout competition, which one author described as "the American Idol of books."

Like "Idol," this competition rest on two factors--the public's support, and the book's merit. In other words, "Dragons" needs votes to rise in the ranking before Amazon's editors will place it on their "read list." Once it's selected, the rest is up to the book, and to them. If Kindle picks it up, it will be published by them and receive the power of their marketing.
I would be so honored if you would vote for "The Dragons of Alsace Farm." If I win, you do too, because every person who votes for a winning book will get a free e-copy!
You must sign in to your Amazon account and use this link:
It should only take a minute, and there are no further obligations.
If you're inclined, I would be so grateful if you could also help me spread the word through your social media contacts. Feel free to copy this text and tell everyone it's from a grateful friend and author. Again, if they help "Dragons" win, they too will get a free e-copy.
Thank you so much for all your support! Here's the blurb, but visit the link to read sample chapters!

Fears and secrets are the dragons we each must face. . .
In need of his own redemption, Noah Carter finally confronts his childhood hero, the once-beloved uncle who betrayed him. Instead of vengeance, he offers forgiveness, also granting Uncle John a most curious request—for Noah to work on the ramshackle farm of Agnes Deveraux Keller, a French WWII survivor with dementia.
Despite all Agnes has lost, she still has much to teach Noah. But the pair’s unique friendship is threatened when Tayte, Agnes’s estranged granddaughter, arrives to claim a woman whose circumstances and abilities are far different from those of the grandmother she once knew.
Items hidden in Agnes’s attic raise painful questions about Tayte’s dead parents, steeling Tayte’s determination to save Agnes, even if it requires her to betray the very woman she came to save, and the secret her proud grandmother has guarded for seventy years.
The issue strains the fragile trust between Tayte and Noah, who now realizes Tayte is fighting her own secrets, her own dragons. Weighed down by past guilt and failures, he feels ill-equipped to help either woman, until he remembers Agnes’s lessons about courage and love. In order to save Agnes, the student must now become the teacher, helping Tayte heal—for Agnes’s sake, and for his.
