Here is the amazing cover of Soulfire. 
Amy Orton of Walnut Springs Press does such an amazing job!!! It went to press on Thursday, April 5th and should be available in about a week or so!
Here is the back cover blurb:
Will God hear Zephenia's prayers?

It is 148 BC, and the city of Nephi is ruled by the wicked King Noah and his corrupt priests. Zephenia’s father has turned to his drink after the death of her mother, and her younger sister Sari dreams of living in the king’s palace. When the family’s hut is destroyed and the sisters are unjustly imprisoned, Zephenia wonders if God has forgotten her. If they survive their tribulations, whom will her father choose as her husband? The only unmarried believer she knows is Gideon, and he is smitten with Sari.

Zephenia's thoughts keep drifting to Alma, the handsome high priest she met while gathering herbs in the jungle. She senses a goodness about him, yet because he is a priest in Noah's court, she knows he couldn't possible be a righteous man. But when the prophet Abinadi is martyred and Zephenia must decide betten her faith  and her family, she learns of a might change that has happened in Alma's heart.

Let the excitement begin! (or continue)

Saying goodbye after the ANWA annual writer's conference in AZ
Today, I got an email from my editor, the lovely and delightful Linda Mullineaux. She has already started on the edits for Soulfire. This next week is going to go by so fast as we get the book ready to go to press. 

If you love the Book of Mormon, and love reading about the Abinadi and Alma the Elder, then you will really love this book.

I can hardly wait to see the cover. Stay tuned for further developments!

In the City of Nephi, ruled by a drunken king, and lorded over by wicked high priests, who delight in lasciviousness, a young woman stands firm for all she knows is true. Zephenia vows she will not succumb to the temptations around her, or to the handsome high priest with his arrogant ways and lustful desires. After the martyrdom of Abinadi, the prophet, she will not abandon her belief in his teachings, nor deny her faith, even at the peril of her life.

Follow this remarkable young woman in her struggles to remain righteous as she confronts a multitude of trials--a proposition of marriage from a wealthy, but lustful landlord, terror at the hands of his evil henchmen, and the lewd advances of an enticing puppet master to King Noah. Join her as she rescues a Lamanite prince and his sister, which threatens the life of another believer, the one she might find happiness with.
