I’m glad you’re here. Let’s relax together and share a good cup of coffee or tea.    Then we can also pick up a good book or two.tiggerbooks

For something new, I’ve got a couple of books that will be out with a new publisher, Mantle Rock Publishing, that will be out primarily as eBooks only. As a co-written project, MERCURY RISING was a project I’ve been working on with my husband for a few years, and it is now done. A little different than my other books, this one is a Supernatural Suspense. it has some interesting elements and a surprise in the identity of one of the main characters. It will be out in September 2018.

After that, I’ve got a romantic suspense also coming out with Mantle Rock Publishing, in November 2018, called THE OTHER NEIGHBOR. It’s based on a real event that was supposed to happen at Y2K . Who remembers what that is? Okay, I’ll tell you, Y2K was the change from December 31, 1999 to January 1, 2000, when the world was anticipating catastrophic computer related disasters because of the date. This story has nothing to do with computers, but everything to do with another potential disaster that the FBI was frantic to solve before it was too late.

In the meantime, here’s a little info about MERCURY RISING.

MERCURY RISING – release date September 2018

by Tim and Gail Sattler

Michael wants to save his daughter, but first he’s got to save the world.

Michael and Charlotte meet when Michael is trying to find Ashley, his missing daughter, and Charlotte is trying to find Jon, her son, who have both gone missing.

Jon is Ashley’s tutor, but tonight, they are not studying. They have broken into the office of Jon’s favorite professor, who has been murdered. Ashley and Jon should have nothing in common, but now they have become ensnared in a tangled web that becomes worse with every new discovery.

When Michael and Charlotte join together to figure out what their children have become invoved with, they, too, are sucked into a sinkhole in which there are no answers, only more questions.

Time is running out. When all seems lost, will they all recognize the source of strength offered to them, and… will they take it?

  1. I just read Hearts in Harmony and see books for Bob and Randy, but where is the book for Paul’s story?

    • Hi Christy
      Unfortunately Harlequin/Love Inspired didn’t pick up my story about Paul. But with the ease of e-books, I plan to do an ebook on him very soon. I’m working on another project right now, but a book on Paul is definitely going to happen. I’ll announce it on my website when it’s ready. 🙂 Thanks for asking!

  2. Hi Gail, I am a fan of your Heartsong Presents Novels. I was wondering where is the best place to order your books from online? I really have enjoyed your books. Thanks So Much Nancy Clark

    • Hi Nancy
      All my Heartsong books are available from Amazon.com, most of them are now out in ebook, but many are available still in hard copy if you buy them used. Just go to Amazon.com and type in my name, and a list will come up. Here’s a link, Gail’s books on Amazon.com
      I’m really glad you enjoy the Heartsong books, every single one of them was fun!

  3. Hi Gail – I have just discovered your blog, again! Is there a way to subscribe, so I can get your posts as soon as they come out? I am just finishing “Take the trophy & run”. I picked it up at the church library. What a great book! It is so funny, you must have had a great time writing it. I did guess who was moving the gnome around, so sweet. Are you going to write more Bloomfield books? I am starting my own blog and I was thinking it would be great to have a link to your site. Would I be able to get a nice picture to go with the link? I am still learning how to do all these things, but I’m sure I can figure it out! Keep writing these inspired words! God is using you!

    • Hi Marlene, it’s great to see you here. I’m glad you enjoyed reading about Gnorman the Gnome and his exploits. I don’t want to ask when you guessed who was moving the gnome, that would give it away to anyone reading this blog who hasn’t read the book. 🙂 I’m still not sure if we’re going to continue the Bloomfield series, but since B&H closed their fiction line, the authors in the series would have to do them all as only e-books. But it’s under consideration, I’ll let you know.

  4. Gail, I was cleaning my “favorites” bookshelf and just re-read the “Men of Praise” books published by Love Inspired. I searched out your site so I could find the 4th and final book of the series…only to find that there is not one. That is not okay! I must find out what was in store for Paul.

    I really appreciated that series – written from the man’s perspective – and concerned about purity and modesty – and staying within God’s guidelines.

    Hoping you can provide some insight on Paul.

    Thanks! Michele

    • Hi Michelle
      I haven’t yet written the story on Paul, it wasn’t picked up by the series, but I do intend to write his story, I’ll be putting it out as an ebook. I don’t have a time frame yet, I’m working on another project right now, but with the ease of e-books now, Paul’s story will be coming, I’m just not sure when. 🙂 So keep looking, it will happen. Thanks for asking.

  5. I’m glad you’re having better success and a have a better relationship with your current publisher. The relationship is very important. I wish you all the best in your writing and publishing adventures, and for sure, it is an adventure. 🙂

  6. I just finished reading “The Narrow Path” and so enjoyed the mix of old order Mennonite traditions with a person from a more contemporary Mennonite church. I grew up in a Mennonite home/church in Mt. Lake, MN, and recognized many of the last names in the story. I found myself wishing that recipes for some of the wonderful foods you described were included in the book. Maybe they are on your website?

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the real classic Mennonite dishes. I don’t have the recipes on my website, but now that you mention it, that seems like a very good idea. I have a website devoted to my Mennonite series, http://www.mennoniteromancenovel.com – when I’m finished writing the book I’m no working on, maybe I should open a section there for recipes. Hmmmm……

  7. Gail, I read and loved The Narrow Path and just finished The Path to Piney Meadows. I read it quickly and enjoyed it very much. The one point that I had a hard time dealing with was Chad’s total lack of communication with his parents — even on Christmas day – not even to talk to them? That is just too hard to believe, especially if he grew up having a Bible and going to church. I can understand to simplify the plot, you left them out, but it isn’t realistic. That is the only thing I think was missing, otherwise I loved the book. I’m anxious for Brian to find a gal.

    • In the story I had set up that Chad’s parents spent their time traveling, which is why they didn’t appear in the story. Of course we can’t put in every detail of the main character’s lives or the book would have too much distraction. In my mind, I envisioned him sending emails to his parents with the occasional phone conversation, but it seemed none of those made it into the book. Sorry about that!
      When this series continues, Brian will be in there finding a gal, for sure. 🙂

  8. I just finished reading Almost Twins. And yes I like happily-ever-after novels. I like Christian Romance, and glad I found Gail Sattler. I read it on my NOOK. It was really good to learn about the cabin, and how they made due with little provisions. I loved the ending. I had to leave a note for the author. 🙂 God bless…

  9. I’m a friend of MTagg’s, now live in MN but from Vancouver, WA & lived in beautiful West Point Grey when I married a Cdn. & attended UBC for nearly 2 years. I’m always glad to discover good writers from our home region–will look forward to getting acquainted w/ your books. All the best! My site is delorestopliff.com if you have time.

  10. Dear Gail,
    I’m reading “The Wedding’s On” and I’m finding it a most unique story about love. When I reached where Janice and Trevor exchange information with each other that they have never told anyone else. I remembered that there’s a part of my life I’ve never told anyone about and I’m going to tell my boyfriend as he’s shared some things with me that he’s never told anyone. I’m almost 75 years old. My son has aspergers and is hyperactive. He was wild when growing up and broke windows, starated fires, disobeyed, etc. I tried everything from removing privaleges and spanking, nothing worked. I became distraught, beat my head against the wall, saw psychologists, got a degree in Child Development trying to find out what was wrong with him and how to fix him. However, I never told anyone, including the doctors what was going on. He started hitting me when he got bigger that me. I ended up hitting him with my fist, yelling at him, I nearly broke his ear drum. All when I was home alone with him. Today he’s an accountant, and cares for his self and family. He’s a Christian and God has changed things. But I’ve still never told anyone so I’m going to do that as soon as possible and all from reading that one part of “The Weddings On” where Trever and Janice shared their secrets. I know it will help me accept myself.
    Thank you for this story,
    Judy Lyon

  11. I can’t believe I haven’t read any of your books before, but I just downloaded The Narrow Path after hearing about it on Pixel of Ink and could not put it down! I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it and am thrilled to hear that there is a sequel coming out, as well as lots of other books from you to check out.

    If you do any blog tours or blogger review copies, I would love to be put on that list. Besides my personal blog, I am part of the review team at 5 Minutes for Books (http://5minutesforbooks.com).


  12. I’ve been copied on blog comments a couple of times, but I have to accept that if I write it on a blog, it’s open for everyone to read, and sometimes that means to take. Since there can be no proper monitoring or regulating this, despite copyright rules, the only method you can use not to have your content ripped off is don’t post anything on the web that you don’t want to have copied with or without your permission.

    • You can also let whomever has copied it know that it is yours and they have to take it down, if they don’t you can contact their ISP to take the whole site down. Most people respond to the request. The easiest way to see if you content is copied is just put it in google and see if the exact same text comes up in other places.

  13. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my
    thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any recommendations or tips? Appreciate it!

  14. Thank you for answering – I found more of your books in the libraries – I live on Cape Cod so that is 70 miles of libraries and not one had any of your books BUT they were really great in going off Cape (such as to Boston and Woburn, etc.) where they did have some of your books and got them for me to read – I loved them all. It makes me wonder what type of books on Cape Cod the readers here like but they are surely missing some GREAT WORKS!!!
    The library system is called CLAMS and it doesnt go everywhere to search for books so I feel very forturnate in getting those that they did get for me.
    I will be anxiously awaiting the new books that you have coming out. God Bless

  15. Hi Gail,
    Wanted to thank you for your helpful comments at the OCW conference. Prema may never see the light of day, but I’m on a learning path in fiction. Enjoying Seattle Cinderella. Blessings.

    • It was a pleasure meeting you, and also a pleasure talking about you and your book. We’re all on a learning curve, and that’s a very good place to be, I’m on a learning curve too. I’m glad you’re enjoying Seattle Cinderella. As you can probably tell, it was a lot of fun to write. 🙂

  16. Hi Gail,
    I am re-reading your The Weddings on and Walking the Dog – your books are hilarious and so interesting I don’t want to put them down.
    I stopped subscribing to Heartsong Presents because l) I didnt want the historical books and two the price went up so is there anywhere else I can purchase your books besides online?
    I see by reading above today that I can get one at Barnes and Noble – how about libraries? Keep up the good work and I look forward to all those that I have missed. God Keep on Blessing You and Yours.

  17. Hi Gail,
    I noticed that you are participating as a mentor at the OCW Summer Conference. I live in BC and am driving down to the conference. Would you like to drive down with me? I think it’s likely that you have already made your travel arrangements, but I thought I’d offer. Tina

  18. I downloaded The Narrow Path because the characters are Mennonites. I fondly remember my Uncle and Dad telling us stories of our Mennonite relatives and ancestors. Imagine my delight and surprise to see names of my family’s friends and relatives in the book, such as Friesens and Janzens, even my maiden name of Penner! The love story was so tender and the message of God was not compromised, making this one of my favorite books. Thank you Gail! I too look forward to reading more of your books. God bless, from Nebraska

  19. Its very refreshing to find an author who writes harlequin romances It was noted we bear the same last names. Could you give us a little history lesson of your geneology? My father in law was Herman Sattler and came from Todden, Austria in the early 1920’s. His father was Frank. He had 9 brothers two which came to Canada Martin and Matt. A cousin named Carl Sattler lived in B.C.

    • Peter Sattler (Tim’s father) was born in Saskatchewan, North Battleford area, his father arrived in Canada in 1911 with 3 kids, later to have 11 kids. They left Saint Petersberg Russia where they were in a village that was taken from Germany in the 1800’s, we believe they were originally from southern Germany but not sure where. Peter and his wife Lillian moved to B.C. 35 years ago, only Tim came out with them the other two sons stayed in Winnipeg. This is Tim Gail’s husband writing, I have access to her site and was doing some maintenance and noticed the question.

  20. Dearr Gail Sattler,
    today is my first time to ever picked up your novel and read, and what actually captured me to read it, is the fact that it is a christian novel. i saw it in a friends house and got captivated in it. i could not drop it until i finished reading it and the zeal to get in touch with you took over me.

  21. I read your Men In Praise series and wondered why there was not a story about Paul.

  22. I just finished reading The Narrow Path this morning..I found myself teary eyed through parts of the book..I am of Catholic faith but this book seemed interesting..I LOVED IT!!! I am sad however, that I have to wait so long to read the next book..I can’t wait for it to come out..Ted and Maranda make such a great couple..You have done GREAT work with this book..I LOVE IT!! Loved it so much, it only took me 2 days to read..I couldn’t put it down..LOL

  23. Gail…I found and loved The Narrow Path! In fact, I finished reading it two days ago and still Ted and Miranda and the others have been on mind. I’m bummed that the book is over. I had to come find your website to see if you please, please, please had another one coming out to make this a series. It made my night to see that another one is coming! I’m looking forward to it already. And it looks like you have some others I can enjoy in the meantime. Thank you! :O)

    • Yes, I’m working on the book that follows The Narrow Path right now. It picks up exactly where The Narrow Path left off, and I’m having a lot of fun with it. But yes, in the meantime, a few in between. Gotta keep busy. 🙂

  24. Gail, your site is fun and your faith comes through strong. Seattle Cinderella sounds intriguiding, because you went beyond the givens of the story into the stepsisters’ lives. Also, I like the idea of for a book in which a gnome can at last find a voice!
    Happy Busy New Year!
    In His joy,
    Maria Tatham
