Has this been published? And it is totally fine if the answer is no. If yes, what publisher and what publication date? Yes! Yellowstone Yondering is published on January 17th 2020 by Pelican Book Group (http://pelicanbookgroup.com/) for their Pure Amore imprint (https://www.adamsprgroup.com/pelican-book-group-pure-amore-imprint.html).
Other works you have published? I have seventeen book manuscripts sitting on my computer, but have only published romantic comedies. One for teens called The Volk Advent, and four others which were all published by Pelican Book Group. They are Copenhagen Cozenage, Athens Ambuscade, Spider Gap, and of course Yellowstone Yondering. I also have various articles, devotionals, and magazine stories published.
Anything you would like to add? Although not typical of Christian romance, my books have gotten a couple of awards. Copenhagen Cozenage took third place in the 2016 International Digital Awards, Athens Ambuscade took first in 2018, and Spider Gap took first in 2019. Spider Gap also won first in the OCW Cascade Awards for contemporary fiction.
Kristen Joy Wilks lives in the beautiful Cascade Mountains with her camp director husband, three fierce sons, and a large and slobbery Newfoundland dog. She has blow-dried a chicken, fought epic Nerf battles instead of washing dishes, transported a gallon bag of cooked bacon inside her purse, and discovered a smuggled gardener snake in her sons’ bubble bath.
Her stories, devotionals, and articles have appeared in Nature Friend, Clubhouse, Thriving Family, Keys for Kids, The Christian Journal, Splickety, Spark, and Havok. She writes romantic comedies for Pelican Book Group, including Copenhagen Cozenage, The Volk Advent, Athens Ambuscade, Spider Gap, and Yellowstone Yondering.
Kristen loves to write about the humor and Grace that can be found amidst the detritus of life. Much like the shiny quarter one member of their household swallowed and then found in the pot four days later. If God is good enough to grant us these gems, she figures that someone should be putting them to the page. Kristen can be found tucked under a tattered quilt in an overstuffed chair at 4:00am writing a wide variety of implausible tales, or at : http://www.kristenjoywilks.com/
