Many of you are already fans of my Embers series. (If you haven’t read any of those books, you may want to start here.) Three months ago, I introduced you to my Sacred Trust series, the books that follow Embers and gives more insight into one of its characters, Detective Samuel Campos.
The second book released on Amazon yesterday!
Finding Benjamin: Description from Amazon
He’s skirting the edge of trouble, but apparently steering clear of it.
Fifteen-year-old Benjamin Torres is known around town thanks to his dog, which everyone gives a wide berth. Still, the teen was spotted at the scene of an accidental fire, so questions about his involvement circle the case file.
God presses Detective Samuel Campos to get involved.
He’s arrested too many teens in the last six months to sit idly by, but he’s uncertain that his plan is viable or will be allowed by his superiors. As he works to know Benjamin and his family, more questions about the fire come to light. Maybe it wasn’t accidental after all.
A Little More about Sacred Trust: Finding Benjamin
Son, always keep in here Whose you are and thereby who you are. ~Carrie Daws, Finding Benjamin
The Embers series was a lot of fun to research and to write, and Sacred Trust is proving just as much fun. Some of the research I mustered through on the first book was enough to turn my stomach. Parts of the research for this second book was downright disheartening. But, thankfully, a lot of that information didn’t need to come out in the story.
I love these characters and am so thankful to all the first responders, police officers, and families that took the time to talk to me and let me glimpse into their lives.
And I enjoyed looking at the positive ways people respond when God asks something of them that requires them to go outside of their comfort zone. It is a good reminder and a fresh challenge in my own life.
The Plan for the Rest of the Sacred Trust Series
If you do what the Lord wants, he will make certain each step you take is sure. ~Psalm 3:23, Contemporary English Version, guiding verse for Finding Benjamin
One more book closes out the Sacred Trust series, and I’m working hard on it now! I plan to release that final book, Banishing Felipe, in early March.
Like the Embers series, each book initially releases on Kindle only. Once the third book is available on Kindle, my assistant and I will work on getting the combination book (all three novelettes in one convenient package) ready for sale via paperback through Amazon as well as the eBook on Kindle, Kobo, and iBooks.
Finding Benjamin is currently available on Amazon in eBook only. It’s a short book, so a quick read. But the lessons contained within it are worth considering yourself.
- What prejudices naturally rise within you?
- How hard is it for you to step out of your comfort zone when God directs?
- Are you missing out on something fantastic just because you turned God down?
